Dreamworks' upcoming animated feature has at least one major hurdle to overcome: Rise of the Guardians is a terrible name for the movie, and sounds like a prequel to The Guardians of Ga'Hoole, which nobody went to see. It has another major hurdle in that its latest character posters reveal a Santa Claus covered in tats and an Easter Bunny geared up for war. Maybe I'm just getting all Murtaugh up in here, but I feel way too old for this shit. And not in a 'this is not aimed at me' way but in a 'why you gotta do that' way.
I hear some positive buzz about the film, so maybe it can overcome these hurdles and be actually good. But man, it's going to have to be GOOD to make me see past the Kris Kringle tat sleeves.
