The World of “The Dark Crystal” (1983)

A behind the scenes look at Jim Henson’s “The Dark Crystal” (1982).
It’s odd how this guy tries to make himself sound intelligent and in-the-know with Lucasfilm, yet doesn’t somehow factor into his bullshit that Disney/Lucasfilm would never take 3 billion-dollar+ money making movies and make them just ‘go away’, however divisively they were received by some fans/him. He claims that once Kathleen Kennedy’s contract ends in 2022 that Bob Iger himself will hire a replacement head at Lucasfilm: A.) Not his decision, KK can decide to renew her contract or choose a successor, B.) Bob Iger is no longer CEO!
Going through my usual need to have my morning news with coffee (which lately has all been bad news), I saw this in an ‘entertainment’ section of google… and I’m still cleaning the coffee off my computer monitor. I seriously LOL’d when I read this crap.
Seriously, comedic gold. Ever wanted to hear the ridiculous ramblings of a wishful heartbroken fanboy? Here’s this “Doomcock Overlord”:
I hope this is an elaborate ruse by HelloGreedo, heh

^ Ha! I was thinking the same thing about this doc recently. I’m a fan of Harmy’s re-mastering of this one too, I remember seeing just the compressed-to-hell version on Youtube several years ago, wishing I could find a better version to watch. Kudos and big thanks to Harmy!

Siskel & Ebert’s reaction to the film:

Everyone ignores Anakin
Lactose intolerant Anakin
^ Oh wow, I had no idea they did those. I’ll have to check into that. Whenever I’m on the site I only ever look at the 4Kxx Star Wars projects. Good to know!

I don’t know, I enjoyed it quite a bit for what it was. It was definitely better than Detective Pikachu. Still would rather have a 2D animated movie based on the original games though.
Fair enough, I’ll agree to disagree; though I can’t help but feel like the movie would’ve worked better (for me, anyway) grounded in Sonic’s world rather than Earth. In fact a friend was telling me that the post credits scenes suggest that the next film will probably take place in Sonic’s world, which I might be down for, if they at least tone down Sonic being generally annoying. The only character I found mildly interesting was the old man who was trying to prove the existence of the “blue devil”.
Ugh. Me and a friend got about 25 mins. in and agreed it sucked and turned it off. Between the consistently nonsensical plot to the unfunny strings of jokes, the weird vocal and visual product placement and Jim Carrey being a douchebag… sure, I wasn’t expecting much, but this movie made the Detective Pikachu movie from last year look like Citizen Kane. And to think there were glowing reviews of this movie, stating things like “Jim Carrey is an absolut delight!”… MY ASS. Seriously, F this movie.
^ That Conan doc’s a good one, I watched it on blu-ray the other night. A lot of interesting stuff in there; that outtake after the credits gave me a good laugh.

“The Wall is one of Pink Floyd’s most iconic album, a magnum opus that has been lavished with praise and subjected to the most hostile criticism imaginable. This retrospective features the band themselves and seasoned music critics, to form an detailed analysis of The Wall.”
Pink Floyd - The Wall: The Lost Documentary (1980)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tmn4IUi6Omk - from the Mike Sparrow YouTube channel (25 mins.)
“Pink Floyd ‘The Wall’ Documentary is a 25 minute documentary based around The Wall live shows, and features the unloading of the touring equipment as it arrives at the Earls Court venue in 1980, it goes on to show Roger at sound check, and a general walk about during the set up of the August London shows, and includes interviews with the Pink Floyd and their crew. It was August 1980, at Earls Court, when cameras recorded the frenetic operation of the entire load-in process. One editor, working alone for six months, was able to create this ‘behind-the-scenes’ documentary. The film successfully shows the magnitude of people and material necessary to mount this incredible production. The staging of this concert has been referred to as, ‘…possibly twice the size of any other show done in rock & roll thus far’ (meaning 1980). Perhaps more significant, this performance would be the last for the band with all the original members who recorded the album. In the melee of the breakup, this documentary was archived and forgotten for nearly a quarter century.”
There was a photo taken on set, where the photographer must have stood next to the camera. So I patched this together from that photo and a screenshot from the movie.
I put on my pair of red/blue 3-D glasses and this looked great! Well done!
