Many people consider Sponge Bob Squarepants as a 6-year old's TV show....

I really love this show because the jokes are so funny because it's stupid  laff

But I only like the first three seasons. Season 4 onwards, the jokes were rather slap stick and I fell asleep while watching it  frown

I wished the writers bring back the same material they did for the previous seasons.

There is no greater pleasure than kicking back on the couch in my WonderWoman pjs and watching a six hour marathon of Spongebob while eating Cracker Jacks and playing with the little cheap prizes. I am such a child... I waited in line to get into the Spongebob movie the day it went to theaters. It is still on my list of favorite movies...

A second SpongeBob Movie is coming February 6, 2015, entitled The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2014/07/24/spongebob-squarepants-first-look-sponge-out-of-water/12710717/



From the writers of Alvin and the Chipmunks 2-3 and the Kung Fu Panda movies, it's about SpongeBob and friends going on land and becoming superheros to defeat a pirate who stole a Krabby Patty...

Also, along with 2D hand drawn animation like here (beautifully drawn by Rough Draft Studios),



There's also CGI Animation in the human world, which has been described to be "akin to the animation used for the Yogi Bear and The Smurfs movies", as seen here.



Special guest stars include Slash and Antonio Banderas as Burger-Beard the Pirate.





So...yeah, I think this looks like shit, how about you guys?

This is stupid, the whole movie itself is just so unnecessary. Do we really need people who wrote the Alvin movies to come write something for Spongebob? And why the hell does it need to be a Avengers parody? I mean Patrick's the Hulk, Spongebob is Captain America, Squidward is I guess supposed to be either Thor or The Flash? And Mr. Krabs is supposed to be Iron Man.

This looks so stupid.. It's sad thinking back to when I was 5 or 6 and I loved Spongebob, and seeing what they did to a once pretty decent kids show after the movie. This movie will probably be the cherry of the turd cake, I mean fight Pirates ON LAND? Over a krabby patty? If it was Plankton I'd understand but.....what's the big deal with Pirates?

Not even gonna bother with this movie. I was planning on it before for shits and giggles. But after seeing this.....No thanks.

Apparently Stephen Hillenburg, the original creator of the show who left after the last film (when the show turned awful), is one of the film's writers so that's good news as far as I'm concerned.

From the sound of things (including an interview I read with Tom Kenny), the weird, CGI Avengers stuff is from the last act of the film and traditional, hand-drawn animation should make up the bulk of it.

I'm very interested in this film, but it's more morbid curiosity than genuine anticipation. That said, I did like the first film.

I loved the first Spongebob movie as well. Solid Plot, Good Jokes, and nice use of Guest Stars. I like the fact they didn't just cram it down our throats like how, a show like The Simpsons would. I still remember it fondly. I had the video game and everything as a kid. It would have served as a great Series Finale for the show.

But this movie, just doesn't really show any promise. The main thing that worries me the most about this movie is:

A) The plot sounds just awful

B) The writers of this movie show no promise, since I wasn't crazy about the latter Alvin movies.

C) Spongebob's been complete shit for almost 10 years now. Even with Stephen aboard, I don't see how the movie could be any better. For all we know he could have lost his touch.

The whole movie to me just seems like something I'd see in a Modern Spongebob Video Game. I'm not trying to bash on this movie (Apparently I am though), but I just have really, really low hopes for it, even after having all hope in the show lost 8 years ago.

I might still go watch it for shits and giggles, since the CGI stuff is mainly going to happen at the end of the film. But I don't have real high hopes for it.  hmpf And I loved Spongebob as a kid. Until after the movie.

I guess just my two cents.

I'm not watching the new SpongeBob movie.

"I just can't seem to get happy. Maybe this will help."



I couldn't find .gifs for these scenes, but in them, Squidward says he can't get happy, then proceeds to first shove his head in the oven (to check on brownies) and then step on a stool and hang a rope from the ceiling (to support his bird cage).

Also, I found this.

I think it's largely down to a large number of idiots that believed it was real and that it was the first (as far as I know, but I might be wrong) of its bizarre subgenre of shitty horror stories about lost episodes of popular cartoons that suggest the creators went insane, are full of gore, blood and "realistic eyes" and get banned from the network, suggesting that nobody has the slightest bit of understanding about how many people are involved in the production of an episode of a TV show.

I had actually never heard of Creepypasta before. The story started off pretty realistic, too, though about half way through reading I realized I was on the Wikia domain, and by the end of course certain parts seemed unfathomable. I've never read any other Creepypastas, but I thought it was an engaging read.

Yeah, this was bothering me even before I realized what I was reading was essentially a gory ghost story.

The trailer has been released.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3I4C7i3pi8

It looks ... pretty funny, actually.

Sure there are some poor moments, but there's also some quick-witted, pre-movie like moments. I'm almost certain this won't be as good as the original, but it definitely looks better than I was expecting.

Some of it looks promising, the 2D parts specifically (love the animation so far), but then when we got to the live action scenes, it started giving me bad memories of other live action adaptions of cartoons (not just for the live action and 3D models, the girls spin class lines and Spongebobs lines at the end gave me really bad "modern" kids movie vibes to it). Can't really say anything was classic era worthy, but the 2D parts looked decent enough, so I'm hoping those parts can reach around A Spongebob Christmas levels of quality with solid story telling and a few funny lines here and there, and this movie doesn't completely fall on its ass like I fear it will.

I hate the CGI characters. This would have been so much better if they'd been traditionally, hand-drawn on the surface like in the first film. If they had to include weird CGI renditions of them, couldn't they have just done it once they use that book to make themselves into superheroes?

So yeah, I get a bad vibe from it (it does feel very in the same vein as those awful films like Garfield and The Smurfs, but I'm willing to remain positive for now.

It's easy to dismiss the writers. Whilst Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger have some utter crap on their CV (Alvin and the Chipmunks and Monsters vs. Aliens), they're also the writers of Kung Fu Panda, Kung Fu Panda 2 and 11 episodes of King of the Hill which suggests that they're actually a pretty talented writing team that just have to write to the whims of whatever producer they're working for.

I had actually never heard of Creepypasta before. The story started off pretty realistic, too, though about half way through reading I realized I was on the Wikia domain, and by the end of course certain parts seemed unfathomable. I've never read any other Creepypastas, but I thought it was an engaging read.

If you enjoyed it, check out "Dead Bart". It's the other infamous creepypasta in that subgenre.

I wouldn't call Monsters vs. Aliens "utter crap", but it is certainly not comparable to the Kung Fu Panda movies. I'm hoping that under Hillenburg's watchful eye, the quality will be much closer to the heyday of the show than that of the awful chipmunk films.

LOVE the 2D animation, not sure how I feel about the 3D yet, not so keen on it.

The continuity is dumb too, in the first SpongeBob when they go out of water they remain in 2D animation-form, but now they suddenly turn 3D?

Yeah. I think they just don't care about continuity - which is sort of fair given that King Neptune is completely redesigned and suddenly has Jeffrey Tambor's voice in the first movie (after appearing in an episode of the show). They've never cared about continuity before but it still really bugs me and it makes me sad to think that we won't be getting the loving  celebration of hand-drawn animation on the big screen that this could have been.

Still, it'll be interesting to see how much of the film actually takes place on the surface. I've read conflicting things - some say that the bulk of the film is hand-drawn and others say that it's just a book-ending device.

When it comes to Hillenburg's involvement, I'm not sure if I should be excited yet. Obviously, the show was much better with him as the executive producer. After the (first) movie, he wanted to end the show, but Nickelodeon wanted to keep it, so he stepped down as executive producer and stayed on as a producer. I'm not sure to what extent he was actually involved after that, but he was still officially a part of the show (just not the showrunner) when it started to drop, nay plummet, in quality.

it still really bugs me and it makes me sad to think that we won't be getting the loving  celebration of hand-drawn animation on the big screen that this could have been.

This. What was the last big budget full-feature theatrical release hand-drawn animated movie that was not based on a TV series that we got? Disney's Mulan in the late '90s?

The last 2D theatrical film I can remember is Winnie the Pooh from 2011 (which bombed, airing the same weekend the final Harry Potter film released). It's a great film to end on, but it still makes me really sad that traditional animation is being used less and less these days, in favor for CGI or Flash. As for this film, there's no reason why they couldn't use 2D characters for the surface scenes like before, other than because it's in right now to use CGI models. They don't bug me AS much as the CGI for something like The Smurfs, since they do seem to keep the same kind of facial expressions and cartooniness as the regular show, but they still could've done without it, probably cheaper, not pandering to the new hip look of films today.

Then again, looking at the trailer, it seems like alot of the film is in the "real world", with the animated scenes leading up to the big, "animated characters in a new world" Smurfs shit, so maybe the CGI actually does fit the film well, if it is just gonna be that type of film, with celebrity cameos such as Slash appearing left and right, and lines from the likes of the Spin Class girls being the highlights of the films comedy.

I'm not sure to what extent he was actually involved after that, but he was still officially a part of the show (just not the showrunner) when it started to drop, nay plummet, in quality.

My understanding is that he was shown each episode in some form - presumably animatic - and would offer up some feedback about ways to improve it, and that was the entire extent of his involvement from season 4 until now.
Anyway, that isn't really putting anybody in enough of a position to do more than polish a turd if the episodes shown to them aren't very good to begin with.
Producer credits are weird because the producer can be arguably the most important member of production and, at the same time, a producer can be literally just the credit in order to keep someone happy.


This. What was the last big budget full-feature theatrical release hand-drawn animated movie that was not based on a TV series that we got? Disney's Mulan in the late '90s?
Disney, alone, has produced countless hand-drawn animated films since Mulan and I suppose your lack of knowledge of the likes of The Princess and the Frog and Winnie the Pooh is a sad indication of how little the general public seems to care about traditional animation these days. When these films do get released, they sadly tend to get buried under a sea of indifference. I could talk for ages about how Disney, no doubt, helped to soil to the public's perception of their hand-drawn animation with awful, straight-to-video sequels and the like, but I'll just leave it at that.
And Disney have shut down their hand-drawn animation wing, now (again), with no future, hand-drawn films in development, although Laika, the company behind Coraline and Paranorman have expressed interest in producing hand-drawn animation, so that's something.

If Hillenburg is on as a writer, then that helps him form the movie better than he could possibly do in the role you described.

Hmm... The Princess and the Frog seems vaguely familiar and I don't remember at all hearing about the Winne the Pooh movie. Then again, I'm definitely not a moviegoer. I only see one or two new movies a year and if you ask me "Have you seen [movie title]?," the answer will probably be "No." At any rate, I think your assessment is pretty accurate.
