RIGHT ON BROTHER!!!!!
BTW, we already started a massive e-mail approach to get the word out, anybody interested please copy and forward the following message to as many people as you can. . .
Really from: email@example.com
This last weekend an ongoing animation tragedy has started to
unfold. The Iron Giant, probably the best new non-Disney animated
film in a long time, is dying at the box office due to inept
marketing by Warner Bros. Studios.
You have a chance to right this wrong by joining the grassroots
internet campaign to save Iron Giant. Please join in to help this
new animation classic.
First go see the movie and take a friend, or if you have kids take
all of them. You will not be disappointed, this is a film for
everyone adults included.
Second send this email to all the people you know and encourage
them to spread the word and see this film.
Third post good things about the film on every relevant internet
forum you can find Newsgroups, Chat rooms etc.
Finally if you are into toys go to a Toy Store (Toys R Us, K-B Toys,
and the Warner Studio Store) and ask for the
Ultimate Giant it is the coolest toy ever. You will probably not be
able to find it but it is really cool. Perhaps we can build
Ultimate Giant mania by creating massive demand.
If you want further info on the film go to:
And to see that it's a really great and entertaining film go to
these various sites and read the MANY lengthy and glowing reviews
for what has become many peoples favorite new film in some time.
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/ (look under reviews)
Even Roger Ebert loved it, saying he was relieved that there were no
spastic sidekicks, and singing teapots!
I went to see it this last weekend, and was really surprised at how
good this film was. I would say it is the most refreshingly
animated non Disney feature since Secret of NIMH. The one thing
that it has that NIMH had is heart. You can see that the people
making this film had fun and the animation reflects that. The giant
is great and is some of the nicest character animation you will see
in a long time. The rest of the animation hearkens back to 101
Dalmations which puts it in a pretty good league.
Once again, go see the movie this weekend, tell all your friends,
and bring the kids. Thank you for your help in saving this new
animation classic .
Friend of the Giant
