    Addams Family trailer.

    I don't know. It's just not clicking with me. Voices are kinda bland and I'm not digging Gomez's redesign. Maybe they will grow on me.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Honestly that's how I felt about the 90s movies, nothing clicked for me but I was 20 years old and beholden to something that came before. This looks OK but I doubt my daughter (who looooooved the 90s version) is going to want to see it with me.

    I like the designs but some of the voices don't click for me.

    This. The character designs evoke the original cartoons.

    I loved the second film.

    Gomez doesn't for me. He's too fat. The Charles Addams illustration was not John Astin trim but he wasn't Fester obese either. I also don't see the need for adding the mole to his cheek. Still the biggest issue for me is the bland voices. It's not bad enough to bother me but it's not good enough to really excite me either. The whole thing is just kind of meh.

    That is something voice actors really lament, they make these big budget films and hire big names, it sometimes works (I actually think Adam Sandler should do more cartoons) and other times it would have been better to hire voice talent.

    I'm a huge fan, and I think this looks mediocre. But I'll be snapping up some merchandise, that's sure.

    This is perfectly illustrated in Kubo and the Two Strings: Beautiful animation, great story, terrible casting.

    I generally have a hard time sitting through his live action stuff but his toon Dracula is wonderful.

    This ad previewed on a YouTube video when I was watching AppleTV recently. Personally, I loved it: It made me not want to wait til Autumn.
