  1. The flying track from that 2000s fantasy movie Horner did Rooftop Kiss from Amazing Spider-Man
  2. I don't even mind that he riffs on the wedding melody from Deep Impact.
  3. What I always took away from Bicentennial Man was the relaxing angelic twinkly bits. The kind of stuff that would be right at home playing in a Disney theme park.
  4. Williams v Horner I enjoy Mecha World. The Horner track immediately gives me the warm fuzzies, but the tone completely changes and sounds like a mishmash of Sneakers and Casper? I have to go with...John Williams. This time.
  5. The Intrada version of First Blood is now streaming on Spotify.
  6. This is not a weekend excursion. This is a serious investigation of the stability of the forum. Your posters, who I represent, are deeply concerned.
  7. Brent Spiner doesn't look bad anyway. The right makeup artists could make it work well enough. I just don't get why they originally made him look like his mouth was stuffed with acorns.
  8. Pretty close. Then they screwed it up in one of the dumbest possible ways. Maybe Solo flopping is why they'll never do another non-Jedi/Sith story again.
  9. Since more stuff is going to be made anyway, I would like to see more things not about the Jedi, Sith, force, lightsabers etc. It worked well for The Mandalorian despite some problematic (for me) inclusions. It's as if there's a mandate that everything Star Wars must feature that stuff. Even Rogue One had Darth Vader and a blind Jedi slapped into it. And Solo...Jesus H. Christ.
  10. Looked like something for the video game/anime crowd. Cameron as a producer doesn't interest me in the least.
  11. Roger Rabbit was just as prevalent in Disney paraphernalia of the time as Mickey Mouse himself. Then, he was gone.
  12. https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/lifestyle/1988/05/06/rambo-iii-the-cost-celebre/d5539328-5943-4204-98ed-481f4a167e24/ I'm pretty sure Jack Nicholson made more than Stallone did the next year.
  13. Disney+: Who Framed Roger Rabbit This is still my favorite Disney movie. This was the best era for me. The live action flicks were good, the animated flicks were beloved again and this one combines the two to extremely entertaining effect. At its core, it's a story of a depressed washed up alcoholic (played brilliantly by Bob Hoskins) who eventually kicks the habit and finds joy in life again. The supporting cast of cartoons and humans are all memorable and the pairing of Disney and Warner Brothers characters is legendary. A great production all around and just as fun as it ever was when I popped in the videocassette. Tron: Legacy I caught this one on telly years ago and was surprised by two things. One, that it was ever made considering the very cult following for the original movie and two, that it turned out alright considering how boring the original is. Michael Sheen is the highlight, but there are very cool visuals and music despite the other characters being slightly boring. The ending is a mess and it certainly raises all sorts of questions about organic lifeforms in a digital environment and vice versa (It's absurd, really), and there are some awkward uncanny valley de-aging effects that are extremely hit-or-miss. Still, it manages to entertain me in a way the first one never could. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Another classic late 80s flick with a stellar James Horner score, fun action and adventure in the oversized world with bugs as giant monsters and a memorable cast. The annoyed neighbor who just wants to go fishing and also played a time traveler on Star Trek is the highlight for me. Do kids these days even know who Rick Moranis is? Does Disney even produce live action films that aren't Star Wars or Marvel anymore? I miss Frank Wells and Michael Eisner.
