    At last, my time has come, mountains shall level and lakes shall boil, the earth shall shake and the people shall quiver in fear. And you shall see my radient glory and see me as your God, for I am FIRST and you shall kneel before me.

    A clear sign of masochism. But I'd rather watch this than that Jack Black movie Erod keeps cutting to.

    Orson's Farm was my favorite part of Garfield & Friends.

    Erod, what character are you going to be in the TGWTG annual movie this year?

    If only Clerks TAS had waited for Adult Swim or webtoons to become popular. They'd probably still be making it today instead of it only getting one season.

    Dammit Tim Curry, why you gotta voice act for so much crap?

    Heheheh, I'm'a go watch Wild Thornberry's when this review is over.

    I missed Janine's old voice & design, but truthfully Peter's voice did make me think of Garfield. But it was still good...I liked both of his voices I guess.

    About castles and mansions.

    Spanish and southern-french castles are the bif fortress-y things with towers, and pits, and all that, because of the 800s year long against the muslims. Samewise SOME castles are like that in UK for similar reasons. But in central europe most castles are actually mansions.

    Castle come from castellum, which is a diminutive of castrum, which would be a refuge, a fort, a place to rest. While war castles had to be a fort for war, peace castles were a fort for politics. So appareances were important. They served the same purpose: protecting the power on a zone... so they received the same name.




    Funny enough, NO BRITISH would even dream on replacing a castle... not that it'd be even remotely legal. They're pieces of history, they, for the most part, are national patrimony, or protected somehow. EVEN if you would be able to repurpose their interiors, their exteriors HAVE to remain unchanged.

    This is a message to ALL USA producers and writters: Guys, Europe is OLD. Not old like you guys call some of your buildings and cities. Some of what we call "new" is still older than your nation. History is important to us. And we have LOTS of it. Middle ages castle, still around, after 600 to 1600 years? Noone would even dream on destroying it. Just think for a second before having the bad guys wanting to destroy something that THE ENTIRE WORLD WOULD DEEM ILLEGAL.

    This place though is a famous british mansion, just misnamed in the movie. MikeJ complained about it constantly in his review of Garfield 2.

    Garfield one was okey movie but garfield 2 was... :|
  • WarriorNun
    I knew that there's a reason why I avoided this film...
  • SRanger1071  - Palace, Castle, sort-of same thing
    Yeah, "castle" may not have been the best term for that dwelling. You're right; "castle" is usually more associated with the high-tower, stone-built, well-fortified buildings seen in Germany, Ireland, Scotland, and other European countries as well as animated movies like Quest for Camelot, Brave, Sleeping Beauty, and Swan Princess. "Palace", which would be the better name for this dwelling, is the fancier, more impressive and decorative dwelling that royals would stay in, as seen in Germany, France, England, and other countries, in addition to animated features like Anastasia, Little Mermaid, and others. There's an easy way to tell the difference. If it has tiny windows in the towers and looks like it could survive cannonballs, it's probably a castle. If it has gilt leaved everything, big windows, and expensive furnishings, it's probably a palace.

    Garfield 1 was not OK, it was bad, even if you take into account that it wasn't a family but rather a children's film. I dragged my friends to see it as a fan of the TV show and was gravely disappointed.
  • Kinnikufan  - Great review, but...
    The thing that made this my favorite Blockbuster Buster video was the use of Nigel Thornberry clips.

    Dude, don't take Thor's hammer. He needs that for Avengers 2.

    It's not Thor's Hammer. He clearly said Stormbreaker. He stole Beta Ray Bill's hammer.

    Nah, I have a copy of Stormbreaker. It looks a LOT different ;)

    The first Garfield movie had some of the worst product placement I've ever seen. Wendy's was referenced 3 times! Once as a TV ad, once verbally by Garfield (Where are we going? Wendy's? Olive Garden?), and once as a billboard for the model train set!

    I always hated that part in Zombie Land. Bill got exactly what he deserved for sneaking up on someone he KNEW was armed (or at least the person with him would know), wearing zombie makeup...after the freakin ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE! Just a dumb scene. I will admit the Garfield line got a chuckle out of me.

    OMG that theme song...oooh it takes me back. I love it so. :)

    Oh man, E-Rod, you took all the words out of my mouth with this one. I was so wanting a sequel movie to feature the cast from US Acres (what Orson's Farm was originally called); I even had an idea where Jon would take Garfield to his family's farm and Garfield would have to help defend the barnyard from Orson brothers! And if I had reviewed either one of these movies, I would have used that exact same clip when comparing the real Liz to this saccharine replacement.

    That sounds like a much better story idea for a Garfield sequel than what we got.

    Actually ERod, A Tale of Two Cities also did the whole two-guys-look-alike bit where one takes the place of the other. So it wouldn't be Prince and the Pauper.

    In fact, this would be more like Prisoner of Zenda or Dave.

    I STILL find it unbelievably stupid that they went through all the effort to animate a CGI cartoon Garfield that actually looks pretty good, but all the other animal characters are just regular animals given the mouth flap treatment from Babe. It's like watching an episode of My Little Pony where one of the characters is inside out and nobody mentions how strange they look.

    was wearing darkwing duck shirt because Lorenzo Music voiced for the show?

    I don't know how I feel about E-Rod being able to wield Thors Hammer, but I can't complain, I have the Kusanagi... yeah I won't say anything about it.
  • Guild Navigator

    Yeah,this movie is a betrayal of the basic Garfield character. Garfield isn't mischievous by default(like Heathcliff) and only goes Aggro when anything comes between him and his food or his napping.

    eh..Garfield the first movie was ok. I thought Bill Murray did an alright job taking on the role; but most of the movie was pretty bland. As for the sequel, it looked stupid; so I refused to watch it. I could point out the unoriginal and ripped off concepts in the first few moments of the trailer.

    I forgot that Frank Welker did Garfield's voice in the new show. Didn't care for it. I was impressed with Welker's voice almost resembling the original voice. Impressive talent! Loved the original show and it's been awhile since someone has talked about it. Great episodes and humor. I grew up with reading the comic strips like most people.

    As for Bill Murray, I really don't get his deal sometimes with his complaints with Ghostbusters and Garfield. He wanted to do a sequel to Ghostbusters and frequently complained how he didn't like how the sequel came out to be. He's always on the fence about the third one and originally wanted to be killed off or not be in it several times. Even though the rest of the cast wants to do it and the fans wanted a clever and fun conclusion besides the video game. Plus..he had no problem doing Ghostbuster references in Zombieland either and the Garfield regret which everyone knows he was paid big. He's a talented actor; but his ego..ughhh.

    It has Tim Curry (even if only his voice). That's always good enough for me. I know, I know.

    I loved Garfield and Friends! I also got the collection of comic strips and they made me laugh. I should still have them somewhere. The first movie was ok on its own, but didn't have the same feel and humor as the show. This movie was much worse! So...kiddified! Ugh, I miss the subtle humor kids movies and shows had during the 90s. I like Shrek still, but I really feel that it's thanks to that film that most kids movies today have crude humor. T-T Anyway, that's a pretty early announcement for an event you're going to. Wish I could go, but I'm far away. It sounds like so much fun.

    garfield without garfield is better

    and so is calvin and hobbes, for not being a commercial sellout
  • Masonoiusthe25  - I"m sorry (actually not really now that I think of
    But really this?
    This is what is considered content?

    No wonder the best producers jumped ship. Hell, I would if had to deal with crap like this. I (did like) the site but the last year or two sadly makes me wish Nostalgia critic permanently left so unoriginal rejects like this would disappear...

    The last thing we need is another group of fucking morons who spout shit like it is fact.

    Bat fact or any wretchedly grating attempt at a meme....
  • TBTabby
    Garfield has jumped the shark. Not the worst comic in the funny pages, but not as good as it used to be either. It'd become one of those comic strips that stopped being funny years ago but continue to hang around because people are afraid to admit it. If only Jim David had taken a hint from Gary Larson and Bill Watterson and bowed out at the top of his game. Not only would Garfield be much more fondly regarded by comic fans today, but it would make room on the page for some new talent to step up.

    Yeah, I knew this movie would blow, largely because it was made after the shark-jumping. You're right, the movie would be better if it took a cue from Garfield & Friends, but who says it has to stop at US Acres? Imagine a movie where Garfield has to deal with the Buddy Bears and their message of conformity disguised as friendship?

    On a side note, the peeing on the fire thing actually did happen in the Gulliver's Travels book.

    As for this movie, I agree that the first Garfield Movie was meh but this stinker...I couldn't even watch the whole thing when it was broadcast on TV. Thanks for busting this one, Erod.

    The Garfield and Friends TV show did not introduce Garfield to mainstream audiences. The multiple primetime animated specials which came before the TV series did that.
