    How to Make Good Movies Better

    Octavius Rex.jpg

    This is one of RNW's famed "how to" pages. It contains lots of opinions, but may also have just as much vulgarities, gross-out content, satirical humor, and NSFW elements. Also, some of these pages are freakishly long, which pretty much speaks for itself.
    These pages are now considered legacy pages and can no longer be edited by ordinary contributors.

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

    • We actually get to find out what happened to the soldier who refused to kill Snow White.
      • But he's only there like once?
    • Make the film less cliche. And yes, I'm aware this film was made 80 years ago.
      • But it was based on an existing story?

    Shrek series


    • Dragon will never kiss Shrek's butt.
    • Remove the word "Jack*ss."
      • Tone down more of the swearing.

    Shrek 2

    • Have the film focus more on fairytales than pop culture films.

    Shrek the Third

    • Remove the ogre babies or make them only appear in the dream.
    • Improve the humor.
    • It starts with a character reading a book, like in the rest of the films.
    • It actually shows Fiona's human form.
    • Shrek actually roars.
    • It ends with a party, like in the rest of the films.

    Smurfs: The Lost Village

    • Use less modern teen slang in the character dialogue, less filler, and less predictable plot points.
    • It follows the comics more.
    • Use no pop songs, as it doesn't fit in the Middle Ages.
    • Have Smurfette explain where she came from.
    • Use American and Canadian cartoon voice artists for most of the characters, instead of celebrities.
    • Make the plot a little more serious, darker, and more faithful to the source material.
    • Have it co-produced and distributed by Paramount Pictures (as it originally owned the film rights to The Smurfs before Sony took over) or Warner Bros. (Owners of the 1980's cartoon series).

    Pokémon movies

    General (not changing elements)

    • Sell the Miramax movies (4-7) to The Pokemon Company International after the purchase with The Weinstein Company rather them keeping them for budget purpose.
    • NOT overuse the backgrounds from "Pokemon 4Ever" (more like 4Never).


    • Elsa and Anna have better parents.
    • Make Olaf more interesting.
    • Make the songs better.
    • Make the trolls funny.
    • Not have it invade the market.
    • Make Hans not to be a twist villain, and never make him one! In fact, make him the love interest instead!


    • Make it just slightly more historically accurate.
    • Don't give the characters American accents.
    • Give Constance a different actor because that one looks too modern.
    • Constanze calls Mozart Wolferl instead of Wolfie.
    • Don't translate the German-language operas to English.

    Ready Player One

    • Add Ultraman like in the book, but don't replace it with the Iron Giant.

    The Lion King

    • Pumbaa's personality is less of a "haha he's a fat guy who eats and farts a lot!" stereotype.
    • Simba is less arrogant.

    Bugs and Daffy's Carnival of the Animals

    • Add "The Tortoises", "The Cuckoo", "People with Long Ears", and "The Swan" pieces in.

    Sonic The Hedgehog film series

    The original OVA

    • Make Sara less annoying.
    • Give it the better English dub.
    • Improve some humor.

    Live action films


    • Use CGI to give Jim Carrey Dr. Eggman's signature egg-shaped body.
    • Yuji Naka (or anyone from the Sonic Team staff) makes a cameo.
    • There are references to other SEGA franchises. (Not just Samba de Amigo's maracas)
    • Humans and Mobians to just co-exist in one world like the games, but beyond that, we could see stuff like game-accurate versions of the President and GUN Commander.

    First film

    • Sonic redesign is the prime one, no unnecessary delay for changing it. Also release it on the original date.
    • Replace Speed Me Up with I Ran (So Far Away) from A Flock of Seagulls.
      • But is an electronic cover by Billie Eilish ft. Imagine Dragons.
    • The final battle between Sonic and Robotnik is at Tokyo, Japan, rather than the Green Hills town.
    • Replace the Olive Garden product placement with Sonic (the restaurant) product placement.

    Second film

    • Not having Dr. Robotnik floss.
    • Tails gets more screen-time in the film, with Sega pointing out to director Jeff Fowler that, despite the "2" in the logo being stylized after Tails, "he's more or less a third wheel compared to Sonic and Knuckles". Also, he and Sonic's brotherly bond gets more focus.
    • The wedding subplot in Hawaii is shortened significantly, with half of the waiting scenes cut and said subplot flowing much more organically; Randall also doesn't fall in love with Rachel for real, with the latter tying him to a chair next to Commander Walters. Nintendo felt that the wedding subplot as it was contributed little to the film other than introducing G.U.N. while slowing down its pacing. The guard's acting when Maddie tries the gadget is also much better, along with the effects used when he's lifted away. Rachel later appears in the ending, acting as an aunt-like figure to Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles, with Randall appearing in the climax and stinger.
    • The effects during the shots of Robotnik and Knuckles on the former's hovercraft at Siberia look better.
    • No fart jokes, dance sequences, or flossing; Sega pointed to The Lego Movie and Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse as examples of successful family-friendly films that don't have the former two elements, and pointed out that the latter would date the film. Instead of a dance showdown, Sonic gets the map through "bullet time" like how he caused mayhem in the bar in the first movie.

    The Secret Life of Pets

    • Actually, keep Tiberius's original Albert Brooks voice.
      • Speaking of Tiberius, have him say "He's stupid to talk, too ugly to eat, and too lazy to drink." when he talks to Ozone

    The Croods

    • Don't make anything fun, new, or curious bad.

    Pokémon: Detective Pikachu

    • Make the CGI designs for the Pokémon similar to a mix of the CGI in Pokkén Tournament and in Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution so they don't look uncanny.


    • Replace the Animal Liberation Front with a Humane Society.
    • Get rid of the pooping scenes

    Home Alone

    • Make it 2D-animated.

    Cats Don't Dance

    • Give it more promotional material.
    • Give Max a professional voice actor.
    • Make an entire franchise based on it.

    Golden Book Video

    • Make the animation more fluid, and not limited.
    • Credit the voice actors in the end credits.
    • Make series adaptions of specific videos. (Such as "Sing, Giggle, and Grin", "Sing, Stretch, and Shape Up", and "Journey Through the Jungle of Words".)
    • Make more CDs/cassette tapes of songs from Golden Book Music/Step Ahead Videos, like they did with "Sing, Stretch, and Shape Up".
    • Keep using more stock sound effects in the more recent videos such as "Sing, Stretch, and Shape Up" and "Journey Through the Jungle of Words". (At least, that would be better in my opinion.)

    Ice Age series

    • Don't give all the main characters (excluding Manny the Mammoth) love interests.
    • End it after the third one.

    Ice Age

    • Cut out the scene where Sid the Sloth accidentally steps on the feces.

    Toy Story 2

    • Keep one fake blooper outtake reel of Stinky Pete talking to two Barbie dolls for a role in Toy Story 3.

    Toy Story 3

    • Make the incinerator scene and the Caterpillar Room sequence where Andy's old toys are messing and thrown around by uncontrollable little kids less scary.
    • Make the toy monkey less scary.
    • Remove Stinky Pete from the poster for the film.
    • Don't make Jessie, Bullseye, Rex, Mr & Mrs Potato Head, Pizza Planet Aliens, Slinky, Hamm, and Buzz unlikeable.

    Toy Story 4

    • Woody does not leave Bonnie or the main gang at the end. Rather, Bo Peep, Billy, Goat and Gruff, Giggle McDimples, Duke Caboom, Ducky, and Bunny join the main gang, much like how Jessie and Bullseye joined the main gang at the end of Toy Story 2.
    • Buzz's personality isn't flanderized.

Buster was traumatized by this and developed a deep hatred for humans. Eventually he found other stray puppies and they became a little pack with Buster as their leader.
