With all the smack being talked about him lately, it might be helpful to remember the golden days.

That's a powerful scene there.

I hadn't seen the trailer for that movie yet. I feel I'm now scarred for life.

How could Disney make the mistake of placing Aztecs at Machu Picchu?!?

In the movie script world, the Aztecs, Inca, and Mayans are all hazy, mutable entities that seem to pop up in existence wherever a film needs ancient mysteries and/or brown spear-hucking jungle savages. Where the jungle actually happens to be in a geographical sense is irrelevant. It's a jungle, so, aztecs. QED.

They had herky-jerky CGI demon dogs talking and singing in an unholy production number, and you're worried about cultural accuracy? [Big Grin]

That's far, far more disturbing than the original [scene from Sixth Sense]. Which I found more disturbing than most, I suspect, because I'd worked with the guy who plays the dead girl's father.

Disney has completely sold out to the big CGI companies.
