Thinking 'bout Alvin

Yesterday I said I've been thinking about Alvin and the Chipmunks lately, which is a strange thing to admit. When I first heard a live action Alvin movie was coming, I blogged about it and asked some reasonable questions:

Will the chipmunks look like 3D versions of the 1960's cartoons? The 1980's cartoons? Realistic three-foot high chipmunks? None of those sound good...

Well, last weekend I found a teaser movie poster (and a little about the writer).  Go ahead, click on it and then come back.  It answers some questions and brings up some more...

1.  So, the chipmunks are more realistic than before, but there's some cartoony-ness going on.  Of course, their eyes are still hidden, so we can't really judge the final product...

2.  If they are in scale to Dave, they are the size of real chipmunks.  Is that a good idea?  A big part of the previous versions was the pseudo-parent/child relationship between Dave and the 'munks.  That was probably easier to pull off when they were the size of children...

3.  I hope the hip hop posturing in this picture is only for the poster, and not the way they are all the time...

4.  Jason Lee, good luck with this, because this is the sort of thing that could easily backfire...

5.  That writer Don Rhymer seems to be kind of a hack, huh?  But that's probably not fair of me, he's certainly written more movies than I have. And the other writer Jon Vitti has worked on some cooler projects, so that's good...

I remember I used to sing all the songs in this movie when I was younger, hehehehe...I still love this movie, I have it on tape and then I recorded it to DVD so I can watch it all the time...;)
I always thought it was funny how the Chipmunks looked like they were wearing dresses...:P

I'm not sure I will like this movie...I will definitely download it to watch, but I won't be seeing it in theaters...:P
They look way odd and not true to their original personalities...
I loved The Chipmunk Movie, I want to watch it right now...
I think the Chipettes are SO ADORABLE...;)

The Chipettes were a good idea to add something to the show...
