That scene gave me many nightmares as a 10 year old. And possibly tonight as a 40 year old. 

I don't understand why everyone in the 90's collectively decided "oh it's cartoons so it's a kids movie". Movie is so dark and that scene especially is terrifying.  It honestly holds up as a good Noire

Loved Roger Rabbit. Absolutely one of the more underrated movies of all-time. It’s never on TV either, like ever. Which is kind of weird.

I can’t even remember the last time I watched it and that’s a big reason why. I may not have seen it since I was a kid, I’m not even sure.

I have the DVD, but it’s been years since I watched it. I remember going to the theatre to see it with my parents, my sister, and my grandma down in Florida, right after my grandpa passed away. It was some welcome comic relief for us after a very rough few days.

This feels like the right thread to talk about this. 

Last year we said “finally, you gave Jack good linemates and he had a good season. A sniper in Sharangovich and a skilled possession winger in Kuokkonen and now he looks great.” 

Watching Sharangovich and Kuokkonen prove night-in and night-out they’ll never be anything more than AHL fodder shows me what an absurd disservice the Devils have actually done to Jack.

If he can make those two absolute scrubs look like solid top-6 wingers, what can he do with an actual goal scorer? What can he do with an actual possession monster? 

Jack Hughes might be a legitimately franchise-changing ice hockey player. Get well soon babe.

He was good, but i think 3 of then made it work, he's definitely missed, but he played with others like palms and wasn't as successful

Zajac actually played well with those two for a while as well.

I’d like to see Jack with Zacha and Holtz. I think that combo could do some damage once Holtz has some more experience

Sounds like a plan to me. Probably the two best shooters on the team. Might as well play them with the best setup man.

That and I think Zacha is good on the boards and is willing to go to the front of the net which could complement the other 2 pretty well, especially if Holtz starts firing away. He’s gotten some nice rebounds off his shots but no ones been around to capitalize on them.

I don't really get it.  How have the Devils done a disservice to Jack?  Who says he's forever married to and stuck with Sharangovich and Kuokkanen as linemates?  Guy's been on the team for 2 years...I think there's plenty of time for the Devils to "do right" by Hughes...

I think my phrasing was more strongly worded than how I meant it. I just think that, with everyone (around the league and here on this board) talking — fairly — about his lack of point production, it’s becoming more and more obvious that his linemates have absolutely stunk. He looked good last year in SPITE of those deadweight losers.

How about they actually had a good year and simply fell off the cliff afterwards? Happens all the time to different players (see: Gusev). As Colorado mentioned, they played with a different center at times as well.

Gusev was exiting his prime, and then had a ridiculously long and weird pandemic off-season where he didn’t get to skate much. 

Sharangovich and Kuokkonen are 23 years old. They should be entering their prime. This isn’t a “slump” for them, this is night-in and night-out being the worst players on the ice.
