Forbidden Planet 50th Anniversary

Re: Forbidden Planet New DVD Update

I figured it was one of those posters that pore only the slightest resemblance to the actual show. Remember the original Star Wars posters, with the original lettering, Luke's washboard abs, and Leia's dress slit up to... well, all the way up?

Yeah ... that was a great poster.

:D

Well, we sorta go to see that costume in the 2nd film. :) And it remains ... very popular in certain cricles today. :D

Re: Forbidden Planet New DVD Update

You mean a certain bikini? Well, obviously.

But my point was, the original SW poster was clearly made by someone who'd never seen the actual film. Because in the first one, Leia's covered neck to toe the entire movie.

If you are talking about the bikini, then that is in the third film. Liea remains very covered up in the second film, but has a cool hairstyle in Cloud City that I have tried to copy, with varying degrees of success.
 
Re: Forbidden Planet New DVD Update

Yes, of course, third film, what was I thinking. :)

but has a cool hairstyle in Cloud City that I have tried to copy

You mean cooler than that "two cheese danish glued to the head" look that used to get all the geek boys so hot, back in the day? ;)

Those weren't cheese danish, they were sticky buns! ;) :D

The danish look I can do; and have done. When the last two films were coming out, I wore my hair like that all day.
 
Re: Forbidden Planet New DVD Update

Best part of Ep. III: Padme's hair providing a bit of continuity.

I just keep thinking about the Spaceballs take on that hairstyle....
 
Re: Forbidden Planet New DVD Update

Sez you. I think sticky buns is funnier, and far more suggestive. :)

More suggestive? Yes. Funnier? No way.

While "sticky buns" does contain the "k" sound, which is usually present in funny material, the rhythm of the phrase is just "off", and rhythm is key to comedy. "Cheese danish" is just a laugh waiting to happen. And "cheese" is also an inherently funny word. (The "CH" sound is akin to "K" and serves a similar function.)

Comedy is a serious business. :)

Holy shit, Joe, that was the most boring post I've ever read.

Cheese.

Was it really? Damn, that movie was worse than I remember the parts I was awake for.
 
Re: Forbidden Planet New DVD Update

There was one good scene that stood on its own, actually had some tension, quality acting for once, etc.... the rest of the movie's high points were all tie-ins with the original trilogy.

And people started blathering that Lucas had "redeemed" himself.

But why are we speaking of this? The prequels are dead to me, and besides, we're off-topic.
