Original Space Jam Director Slams Sequel, Says Film Was Boring and LeBron is No Michael
quote:

Joe Pytka -- the director of Michael Jordan's original "Space Jam" -- is going off on LeBron James' reboot, calling it an uninteresting mess ... and that's about the nicest thing he has to say.

Pytka -- who's also known for directing popular music videos and commercials in the '80s and '90s, including the "I Am Tiger Woods" ad -- tells TMZ ... "Space Jam: A New Legacy" is so boring, he couldn't finish it in one sitting.

In fact, he says it took him 5 separate sessions to complete its 2-hour runtime.

Joe says LeBron's an incredible athlete and a very good actor, but adds ... "The truth is that LeBron ain't Michael." On top of that, Pytka says his film tied the plot to MJ's personal life -- retiring from hoops to play baseball -- while the new movie's missing a personal connection to LeBron.

Pytka's just getting started ... he feels the 1996 "Space Jam" featured a far superior supporting cast with Charles Barkley, Muggsy Bogues, Shawn Bradley and Bill Murray. In 'New Legacy' ... he says he can't even remember one thing Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard or the others did.

The director also thinks the reboot's soundtrack is "insignificant" while the OG's is classic, but his biggest beef is what happened to Bugs Bunny. No spoilers here, but Joe sees Bugs' role in 'New Legacy' as "heartbreaking."

Didn't the Looney Tunes writers despise the original Space Jam?

He's a very unbiased source to prefer his own show to the new one.

I feel all Space ajam threads belong on the Movie Board since they are not about Sports

he pretty much goes out of his way to recruit his guys but Lebron wanted to form a super team so he could get an easy win.

Didn’t see the first one. Prob won’t see this one. But this film is being slammed by many besides this guy. You got to wonder how much of it is politically motivated. Admittedly idk

I started playing the og for my kids to watch and “I believe I can fly” came on. My son (he’s 5) typically hates all music that’s fun to sing along to because he wants to tease his sister that lives to sing. I usually let the two of them figure it out and they both live with the result. When he started to ask to turn off/complain about “I believe I can fly” I actually told him “No. Stop talking and listen to this song. It’s awesome.”

I know csb and father of the year here but just felt the need to share.

I agree with the guy on basically everything. But this is still the wrong board.
