SHOOT ME IN THE FACE
Recently, I was at the video store, browsing around and looking for some stuff to buy or rent to watch in my free time. Yes, I'm one of those lame-asses who doesn't have Netflix yet. Oh well... fuck it. Anyway, so I'm in the video place and I decided that I might stop by the kid's section and look for a movie or two that I could grab for my 2-yr old niece. She's a cutie and I thought I'd be nice and surprise her with a cute little children's film or something.
LO AND BEHOLD, what do I see? An entire rack of Land Before Time movies. WHAT THE FUCK. Yeah, I knew there were like 7 Land Before Time sequels out there... but I jest not, I counted SEVENTEEN different Land Before Time movies, each a different episode or "adventure," (and I use the term loosely).
Does Littlefoot really have THAT many problems? Didn't he reach that lost valley in the FIRST one? I think I must have missed some sort of timeslip subplot in the series, because honestly, I can't think of anything that would give any self-respecting animation studio to keep revisiting the same damned kid's movie. Pretty soon they're gonna be coming out with The Land Before Time: The Rise of Veloci-socialism.
Just wait and see.
I thought the first one was better alone.
