Time

When Obi-Wan says he doesn’t remember owning a droid the ghost of R20000 could angrily appear behind some cgi rocks

Episode VIII: The Ridiculest Jedi
Time

When the porgs start ripping up the falcon we could see the shadow of one cross the screen (a la gremlins 2). Hulk Hogan then tells the Porgs in the projection booth to knock it off a play the rest of the film.

Kylo Ren has tons of darth vader merch in his quarters. Darth Vader duvet, embire strikes back poster.etc

Poe Dameron has a pair of fuzzy dice/bobbly hula girl in his x-wing. Poe is also Ric Olie’s (secret!) son. Also when he flies he flies into the starkiller generator thingy he winds up in the 2001 beyond the infinite sequence.

Finn is called Stu Stormtrooper.

Babel
What a sad film. The Japanese storyline was the most interesting, the most powerful, and the most heartbreaking. I almost wish that’s all the film focused on.

Hahahaha, my kids just saw Babe recently, and so I somehow saw the “l” as an exclamation mark, and I thought you were just excited about it for some reason. And then you described a version of Babe I’m completely unfamiliar with.

Ooo Oo!! Fan edit/mashup idea! Recut Babe (and a bunch of other animal movies) to the audio from Babel. Call it “Babe…l”

In ROTJ, I liked the Ewoks. Even remember playing with that Ewok village toy. But after the prequels came out, I learned that there were a sizable group of OT fans who hated the Ewoks. i.e. just there to sell toys, or were too cuddly or something. I can understand people not liking the Ewoks. I do hate the CGI with blinking eyes in the Blu-Rays though. Also wish the Ewoks battle scenes didn’t have that green screen look to them.

But at least the Ewoks weren’t nothing near like Jar Jar.

But I was wondering. Are there any here who hated the Ewoks, but love the Porgs?

I’m indifferent to Ewoks, neither love or hate them. They’re just there.
Well, except for Wicket. Wicket’s great.

I love the Porgs. (Up until recently I didn’t know what to call them. When I left the cinema I just called them those penguin/guinea-pig thingys). I thought they were cute and charming. That part where they’re burrowing inside the falcon’s wiring made me laugh a lot. I had a big smile whenever they were on screen.

On a different note, did that big Death Star battering ram thingy remind anybody about The Doomsday Machine from Star Trek??? Cos I got big Doomsday Machine vibes off of that thing.

In Frink’s version Commodore Decker tries to ram a shuttle craft right down that thing’s throat, only to be foiled by Rose. 😛

Well, at least we know how Spock will fit into his ridiculous edit… in 50 years time 😛

A Grand Day Out (1989) – 4/4

The Wrong Trousers (1993) – 4/4

A Close Shave (1995) – 3.5/4

All still great, though I wish they’d handle that copyright issue and bring back the original music in The Wrong Trousers.

Yeeeeaaaaaah!
fingerguns

Showed them to my girlfriend recently (as where she’s from she had never seen them before) and she loved 'em. What’s up with copyright issues? Is it to do with the music the penguin plays on the radio?

Several track have been replaced, included some of those mentioned, as well as gromit’s birthday card (originally the actual happy birthday song). I don’t think anyone around here has captured the LD track yet, so we’re stuck with the copyright free replacements for now.

Oh yeah! TBH when it played ‘For he’s a jolly good fellow’ I assumed I had just remembered it wrong. I think I’ve got the videos for them tucked away somewhere, so it might be good to go all ‘Harmy’ on them. Laserdisc would probably be the better way to go with it though.

caught a matinee showing on my day off today. 2D Imax. 4th time. Excellent movie.

I really can’t understand 90% of the criticisms in this thread. there are like 10% of them that i can understand, but the rest?

  • I can understand not liking parts of the Canto Bight sequence
  • I can understand wanting to know a bit more about snoke (curiosity and all that)
  • I can understand being annoyed by Phasma, and bits of Finn as well

not much else though.

I actively avoided advertisements, fan speculation, marketing and the internet overall in relation to The Last Jedi, and just generally kept any hype for it on the down low, which may be why I had such a strong positive reaction to it. I think the last two points, to do with Snoke and Phasma, may partly be to do with hype and fan speculation. When you are convinced that Snoke is Darth whogivesaratsarse mentioned in a single line of dialogue from one of the prequels/comics/video games based on one thing from his physical appearance or that he is totally going to be the big ultimate bad guy, and he ends up a red herring you’re liable to be disappointed.

If there was one thing I WAS disappointed with it’s that Snoke wasn’t tiny, (you know, because Ren uses the mask as intimidation so Snoke could’ve used the big hologram as intimidation) but whatever. It’s not something I’ll lose sleep over. There are more important things in the world than a space movie.

How is this even a point of discussion? Rey clearly beat Kylo Ren at the end of TFA. I mean, maybe if you were watching the film with your eyes closed you’d think that but the visual language of the film, the score and what was going on in the plot all point toward the pretty damn obvious fact that Rey won.

Frances Ha (2012)
I generally don’t like a lot of ‘mumblecore’ indie films, but for some reason I really liked this one. Maybe it’s to do with the David Bowie songs that are sprinkled throughout.

Deadpool (2016)
This was a lot of fun. I’m pretty much done with the whole superhero thing, but I found this whole movie really refreshing.

Rewatched ‘The Ridiculous Menace’ and ‘Attack of the Ridiculousness’ last night. Hilarious.
