I think I would have to pick Young Frankenstein. I liked more of the characters in that one.
Hmm....in keeping with the season.....would you rather spend the holidays inside in front of a toasty fire while the weather raged and blustered outside? Or would you rather spend them like they do in some parts of the world, outside in the sun and warmth - with the possibility of doing a little surfing or sunbathing?
Originals most the time, especially in sci-fi movies. That's where the initial idea comes from.
Just like with the stories from people like H.G. Wells or Jules Verne, etc. People can make great movies based on their stories, but they had the vision first. Remakes try to improve on what came before and sometimes they take the original a step further; sometimes they just re-tell the same story but because it's new it looks more shiny!
Apologies..I just noticed that I posted this without answering the previous question so modifying....... If it's a dark villain then no. If the villain is funny then - maybe. But probably prefer the good cop winning the show.
If you could choose to live in 2 countries/cities for half the year which two and why ?
The dilemma with this is it's all too easy to put importance on and fall into the trap of your favourite Doctor being the one from early childhood. You're first so to speak (that gives me the choice of every Doctor since time travel began )
Tennant gets my vote for sheer conviction - Baker was well Baker and wonderful too but guess it's an age thing as well for me cause I love to see young actors putting youth and enthusiasm into what their forefathers and mothers started same as Dan said on the other thread about some musicians now being influenced by prog.
Sad story - I attended the equivalent of RADA in Glasgow in the late 60's as a child One Saturday morning in class, a group of us (11 year olds) were sitting on the floor in a circle. Suddenly, the door opens and in walks a group of people. The teacher informed us they were here to find some children to be extras for Doctor Who. They were filming in Scotland. Doctor Who was THE kids programme I totally LOVED it. Teacher went on to say we need 5 children to take part we will count 5 round the circle - I was Number .....6 If I, and the others after me in the circle, had been asked after that by the teacher..."Come on class, lets portray the feeling of devastation"...... we would all have got Oscar's !!!!!!!!!!! still gutted after all these years
Whats your favourite method of communication - telephone or email ?
While I agree David Tennant, and Chris Eccleston before him, were perfect for reviving the show and taking it on in today's world, Tom Baker was the first to make the show transcend its 'kid's TV' status and become entertainment for all ages and to inject real humour into the role and, for me, will always be the definitive Doctor.
Teacher went on to say we need 5 children to take part we will count 5 round the circle - I was Number .....6?
Oh well, never mind. At least you got a good part in The Prisoner!
In the half-tone light of a young morning she sighs and $h1ts on the pillow.

rabey: Hi John/bunkerfan and Steelmonkey.
May 7, 2019 23:08:40 GMT
rabey: Thanks for the interest. Unfortunately because Ian/Tull is doing his own book when I sent a request to find John I got stonewalled, even though I have a signed contract by Ian from 2013 stating I was doing a DVD version of The book. I also have had trouble

rabey: I guess after 5 years Ian forgot this even existed. Imean, he never even listed my book with all the other books that have been out of print for decades, yet mine and Tim S still have books in print and we're not mentioned.

rabey: I just get the impression that this AND having just dealt with Tull are all they care about really and it peeves me when the truth is when I first got my original contract with a US publisher to write the book with quotes on 3 other books on ELP,Crimson,

rabey: and YES, I contacted both Martin and Dave from AND and offered involvement in writing and photography. but Dave said no interest and martin was happy to get his photos printed just for credit. Later Daves book arrived and martin wanted 100 bucks a shot.
May 7, 2019 23:25:00 GMT
rabey: Anyway, The publisher refused the cost of photos, Martin wrote the only negative review of the book in print except for Amazon where a few stinkers stalled it's movement, but basically there was nothing advertising the book outside the UK.

rabey: I have to find a better way to post.

steelmonkey: Fights about history, public knowledge and more personally researched knowledge are pretty hard to untangle...but nothing takes away your contributions to total Tull information.

rabey: Very Kind, Steelmonkey!
