Watched Highlander last night. Great story, great hero, great villain. 7/10.

Great...great...great...

7/10?

You're a tough grader, I guess.

I rarely give a rating higher than a 7. I've only given two films a perfect 10/10, and one of those two I haven't seen since 1996, so I may have to revise that one.

Funny story. When I first heard about Jurassic Park I thought it was going to be a movie about long-dead dinosaur fossils brought back to life through magic. When I finally got to see the movie I was suprised at how different it was from my imaginings, albeit pleasantly; I loved JP, it was probably my first favourite movie at the time (saw it at least a year before I saw my first SW film), and I still love it to this day.

Last web series/tv show seen

I'm currently watching the first season of Highlander: The Series on Netflix. It's not a horrible show but it's not great, either. The storylines and most of the characters are rather "meh" for me; Connor MacLeod from the films is a much more relatable character than Duncan MacLeod, IMO.

Memories can be unreliable things sometimes. I remember Leia having her hair done up in buns the first time I saw TESB, and I remember Luke having a blue lightsaber the first time I saw ROTJ. Of course, when I saw them again later, neither Leia's TESB buns nor Luke's blue ROTJ lightsaber were present.

I think I can chalk the blue lightsaber up to being a result of the TV's tint setting being off, though.


Luke's saber was blue in the "Revenge" trailer though.

I know that, but I wasn't alive back in 1983 to have seen the trailer.

Had Lucas had his way this would have been in empire.

Leia "I Love You".

Han "Just remember that 'cause I'll be back"


He then gives a cocky grin and winks into the camera.

     Speaking of bonus discs...

     I watched the THX 1138 SE recently. Outstanding restoration and enhancement.

     I'd like to see Amgraf and THX included in an SW saga set!

     I suppose that would create problems with the different studios and lost profit on the single sales.

     OTOH, it would make the saga sets even more appealing and provide vastly greater distribution and awareness for those two great films.


I think I'm going to go out and get drunk now. ;)


Agreed, Lucas destroyed Thx 1138 the same way he did star wars.  CGi lizards and monkeys, wtf.


You forgot the masturbation machine in THX's apartment...


Who could forget that?


There's also the lobster/scorpion.

And what about the next James Bond flick have heard zero.


I heard something about the next James Bond film.

Apparently it won't be taking place in the Craig continuity, but in the original continuity, with Sean Connery reprising the role of James Bond. The plot revolves around an old, decrepit Bond with syphilis who comes out of retirement to save the world from the evil hybrid clone of Dr. No & Blofeld who is growing a clone army of Baron Samedis to use in his quest for world domination. This Bond film is to be the closing chapter of the original James Bond's story, with Bond dying in service to his Queen and country.

There are rumours that David Lynch had been hired to direct.

1992 VHS release of the OT

Are we talking about the same tapes that were in the 'hologram' boxed set?
That came out in '92, I think.

Those are the last SW VHS tapes I have left. I sold all my others.

I was David Bowie in a past life. Can I be nostalgic?

I saw David Bowie at Madison Square Garden in 1987. Can I be nostalgic?

BTW- how can you be Bowie in a past life if he's still alive? ;-)


Bowie died in an alternate universe and his ghost learned how to traverse the multiverse.

The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations. Not as good as the first, not as bad as the second; 5/10.

Kessel is a hive of black holes. You have to fly gigantic curves to escape the gravitational fields of the black holes. But Han's ship is fast enough to fly smaller curves, therefore his way is shorter than other's.
I hope that violates real world physics, just to make a certain Curtis Saxton itch.

Duracell, yes, no love for the 2003 pilot. I think the only reason I even like the movie is because that's what got me into Lost in Space in the first place. Well, one of its computer games, anyway. Besides, the Robots and Bruce Broughton's score are AWESOME!!!

Just to clarify, the pilot I speak of was for a new Lost in Space series that would have had no ties to the '98 film.

And then there is this little exchange.

"Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father"

"He told me enough! He told me you killed him".

Not bad dialogue, really, but what's with the emphasis on "you"?

  • "He told me enough. He told me you killed him."
  • "He told me enough. He told me you killed him."
  • "He told me enough. He told me you killed him."

 

Nope. I think Hamill's was the right choice.

Alternatively, he could have emphasized "killed", or even avoided emphasis altogether ;-)

Lost in Space (both the awesome 1965-1967 TV show and the awesome 1998 Bruce Broughton Concert/Robot Demonstration/Light Show)

What, no love for the unaired pilot to the 2003 series that was never produced?
