Saw this retweeted on Twitter. This is one of the co directors of Home on the Range. I didn’t know if Doug recently talked about it, but when I checked his Disneycember video on the film was four years ago? And this tweet is a week old? Why talk about Doug now?
I can definitely see why the co-director would be pissed at Doug based on how he talks about the movie in his review:
"Alright, let's get this over with. Home on the Range, yes, ok....out of all the Disney films I was going to see for Disneycember this is the one I wanted to see the least and let me tell you folks it didn't disappoint. It gave me exactly what I thought I was going to get. Oh God, do I hate this film. This is right up there with The Aristocats. Just no creativity, no spontaneity, no passion, no effort, just pure phoned in-ness!"
"It's about as half-assed as you can imagine. Ok, now, let me make one thing clear. When I say half-assed, I mean, half-assed for Disney. I know animation is hard, I know that by most normal standards this is still pretty good animation and I know that by most bad films and even bad childrens films considered, this isn't that horrendous. But if somebody told you that this was from the greatest animation company in the entire world, admit it you'd be a little cheesed off, too! You would want to see more effort from something that's so massive and so large. And this is a movie that's obviously just geared towards little kids, I mean, really little kids, toddlers. The jokes aren't for adults, the writing isn't for adults, the characters aren't for adults, even the animation style isn't really for adults! And again, that was the magic with Disney! They hit both! They could hit both the kids and the adults but here, no...it's just for kids."
"I remember so little. The songs are forgettable. The characters are forgettable. The obnoxiousness of how bright and colorful and smiley it is, just, ohhhh. It's like something out of Barney the Dinosaur or something. It just doesn't seem like Disney. Er, maybe it does but not updated Disney, not current Disney, not the Disney that kept us coming back wanting more, not the passion, not the drive. Uhhh, I don't even know what else to say about it. It's just bad."
The comments in bold are what set off the co-director, who defends his crew's difficult animation work against a "unfunny douche nozzle", and "no talent dilettante" who has no clue what it takes to make an animated film. Apparently, he previously sent Doug a message saying that Doug should say all the things he said in the review to his face. He clarified that he wasn't physically threatening Doug, describing both himself and Doug as guys who don't belong in a fight, just saying that Doug didn't have "the stones" to say it to his face. He's also quite disgusted to learn about Doug shitting on The Wall.
