On Cartoon Network last night, The Powerpuff Girls Movie was on, and I enjoyed it a lot. It's basically an "origin" movie, with the longest "tag" game ever. It's a visual masterpiece. And Mojo Jojo is a good heel.
Of course The Powerpuff Girls Movie was a big flop at the box office last year. Why that was a flop and "What A Girl Wants" was a hit I'll never know.
It's being repeated tonight, tomorrow night, and Monday night at 8:00, and I recommend you see it.

LET ME HOLLA AT YA PLAYA!I actually own the DVD of this. I went into this movie only knowing the PPGs from that one cartoon they played 45,291 times about Fuzzy Lumpkins back in like 1997. Dare I say that was one of the best action movies of last year, and I would put the 'tag' scene right up there as one of the best written and directed cartoon scenes EVER.
If you can spare the ten bones, just get it on DVD previously viewed at BallBusters. It's much better without commercials.
Originally posted by tomvejadaI also liked the sequence with all the different news shows talking about the PPG.
Based on what you said, Odessa, I don't think there will be a Samurai Jack movie anytime soon.
Man, if there's a Cartoon Network original that should be adapted to the big screen, it would be the Samurai.
Anyway, I'm actually watching the PPG movie right now, and so far have been digging it. Mojo's been making me laugh a whole lot (the scene where he gets real big just came on--dig the monkey nipples!)
I actually missed this movie when it was in theaters, but a friend of mine (who had introduced me to the show in the first place) saw it and hated it. Of course, she had to deal with 4 5-year old nieces, so that could have put a damper on things.
EDIT: By the way, after the movie, they showed one of the original PPG shorts from the now-defunct (I think) What A Cartoon Show. That was definitely an interesting look back.

Can someone explain the appeal of the Powerpuff Girls to me?
I worked in a video store for 3 years, and I remember hearing the PP girls on the vidoes overhead, and all I remember is a LOT of high-pitched screaming - that, and really intense dance music. . .
But there must be more to it, right?
Appreciate your love for the questions of life like that of a closed box or a locked door. Do not permit the temptation of any human's sacred doctrine to be your fleeting answer. Let the joy of wonder overcome your desire for knowledge, and when you do, the questions themselves will become your answers.
I like the show, and the movie. It is very comic-bookish, and just because the protagonists HAPPEN to be young girls does not necessarily make it a show for little girls. Plus it has a real subtle humor to it.
Plus, back in my pot smoking days- the episodes with Him in them were the greatest thing ever. They definitly have a bit of "drug culture" influence going for them...
The Ladies Forum? Why do you say that? I don't think any women have posted in this thread yet....
Any movie that contains a giant robot monkey that CRAPS BOMBS INTO ITS HAND AND FLINGS THEM gets my vote.
"You may be wondering why I have been making so many references lately to Fox News. The reason is that it is now my cable news network of choice -- because if Iím going to watch the news and be lied to, I want it to be ridiculously obvious that I am being lied to." -- Center for an Informed America, Newsletter #34
TCM is one of those love'em or hate'em flicks. I mean, you can tell that they were trying and I enjoyed the fact that they managed to stay pretty consistent with what they were doing. That said, that wasn't much of a massacre. I mean...eight people?
