    Default Knock-Off Films

    Anyone know of knock off films that rip off of real films. You'll see them in supermarkets and toy stores everywhere: the inexpensive DVDs that are clear ripoffs of whatever live action or animated movie has just hit the theaters. You may have even wondered to yourself, "How bad can they really be?" Unsurprisingly, the answer is "pretty bad."

    I mean, there are ripoffs of animated films, like "The Little Cars" (Cars) and "Ratatoing" (Ratatouille), and live action ones such as "Transmorphers" (Transformers/Terminator) and the recent "American Warships" (Battleship). What do you think about them? I think they are just bad and a cheap way to make money.

    One of the DVDs my mother got from her job at Wal-Mart for free was a rip-off of Madagascar 2; I haven't watched it myself, but I could tell by the cover that it is one. I have no idea why it got the "family approved" mark. Do Phoenix Games count? They're technically not video games at all, merely animated films that ripped off Disney and recycled the same characters and animation.

    It probably got the "family approved" mark since they stamp that on all sorts of christain movies. What's the name of it, I need to lol @ it.

    Also, I've seen clips of them, usually they are laughably bad. I mean, just look at little cars:

    I'm DEFINITELY familiar with Phoenix Games, or more rather, Dingo Pictures, a German animation studio, on Youtube, one comment I read about them was "the animation is crappy, and creepy", cause not only is the animation terrible and off model, but it's far down in the uncanny valley.

    I can agree with you, they just approve them without watching them, and seeing how terrible they are

    AAAAAAGGHHHHGGGGHHHHGGGHHHHHH not Dingo Pictures!!!! Although, because they're so horrible, they're interesting to watch because of how train-wrecky their movies are.

    Nothing like cacti, Old West saloons, and hyenas in Pocahontas (where she says "Nein, nein!" at one point), and the plague of rats and Zeus in the burning bush in their Prince of Egypt knockoff.

    Then there's the nonstop jungle drums in Animal Soccer World with one voice actor playing dozens of characters.

    They have a Prince of Egypt knockoff? I must see it to torture myself for the lulz.

    I've seen a few of their films, though they're fun to make fun of MST3K style, considering their historical, geographical, and sometimes anatomical inaccuracies (for example, a dinosaur with a cats face), it's scary that the people who make these are full grown adults, and clearly forgot what their school teachers told them.

    How have I never heard of any of these "notorious" knock-offs y'all are referencing? Is this some regional phenomenon? Even in Walmart I've never seen anything like these...

    Anything From video Banqueto (sp?). The Little Princess School is the worst, they show no other dang emotion besides a smile When they talk and even when they are shocked, Mad or Sad.

    They are basically made so that people mistake them for the real thing, TV Tropes calls them "The Mockbuster", and they are usually made as a quick way to make money, and often, they appear in video rental boxes and video stores, and usually when the real film is in theaters, making them easier to spot.

    Also, they're not always animated films, they can be live action too, films from The Asylum in particular is one group that makes these things (and they even admit that they deliberately make them bad)

    Video Brinquedo (it's Brazilian), I've seen Ratatoing, and I think half my brain died, Film Brain actually was brave enough to review it.

    I just watched the review of Ratatoing from the Film Brain, and Ratatoing looks like a terribly animated video game with horrible cutscenes similar to Hotel Mario on the PC or 32x or N64.
    Why are you looking here? There is nothing here.

    To me, Video Brinquedo's CGI is bad enough to make the animation of the CDi games look like that of Avatar: The Last Airbender (and you know when I compare it to Avatar, you know it's THAT bad).
