    I suppose he likes those old school skeleton keys and those nice brass-coloured Lockwood sets. He might not be much for new biometric key technology though.

    Batman Forever
     

     
    Delivering big once again on the spectacle after a comparatively lowkey return of Batman in the previous flick, which was apparently too weird for Warner Brothers. That didn't stop them from slapping the guy onto practically all conceivable paraphernalia in '92. This time around, it's still weird, but it's far more marketable with a hip all-star cast whose big names fly all around the screen during the opening credits, a diverse tie-in soundtrack album with something for everybody, a friendly circus that doesn't kidnap and murder children and less women being brutally shot. We swapped our plastic McDonald's tumblers for glass mugs. Sounds like a recipe for success.
     
    For being the biggest movie of '95, it holds up as an entertaining enough funny book flick. There are some real wild visuals in this one, a lot more fun, even human conversation accessible for the straights. The blondie female lead in this one (Nicole Kidman has never looked better) isn't oppressed, pushed out of a window by her boss and/or having a psychotic episode. She's the most normal one! She has a thing for Bats and Val Kilmer suits up, only occasionally looking badass in the suit. Hey, Joel. Can you tell him to scowl once in a while? Look remotely intimidating? Keaton was better.
     
    Jim Carrey is a convincing psychopath. He steals every scene, of course. Tommy Lee Jones' performance is bookended by his best scenes. Most of it is comprised of yelling, laughing and making weird noises. I think he's great casting, to be honest. Who else is in this? Oh, that's right. The kid from the Disney Three Musketeers is Robin. I like the scene where he goes on an adventure in the Giger-inspired Batmobile with fins that flap around, tries to pick up hookers and then rescues a 90s babe in double denim from a neon street gang. It's unrelated to Riddler and Two Face and it's just kinda cool to see the streets of Gotham overrun by these punkers who scatter once Batman arrives. Audiences would do the same for the following entry in the series.

    It has that typical Chris Columbus look. If you're familiar with the Home Alones, it looks along those lines. Gotta make those pale upper class white people look all warm and cozy in their enormous houses.

    Twister
     

     
    Pretty much anything featuring Bill Paxton is good and a flick where he's a guy actually named Bill engaged to a charming beautiful southern belle played by the chick from The Lost Boys, wearing denim, driving a big red Dodge Ram chasing after tornadoes and constantly cursing sounds like a recipe for success. It was a big hit, of course. I've always liked it, even after they replaced the Ghostbusters show at Universal Studios with a reenactment of the scene where a twister rips apart a drive-in movie.
     
    It does capture not only that perfect 90s era when we were all happier with plenty of denim, plaid and alternative music, but also the feel of driving around the midwest/south which I have a fondness for. Helen Hunt is a bit Jodie Foster here. Cary Elwes nails the southern accent and is completely believable as the "villain" despite the fact that they both share the same goal of releasing the sensors into a tornado. The entire cast is great. The state-of-the-art twisters are animated by ILM with sophisticated computer technology and look better than real ones. There is also a huge amount of practical effects and stunts. Cars and large objects being flung around and blown up. It's pretty epic at many points. Soundtrack by Mark Mancina, Lisa Loeb and others.
     
    Produced by Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy.

    It was actually @Borodin who edited the image. I remembered posting this and began an exhaustive Google image search of my username which turned up many photos of myself with longer hair, the E.T. ride and sexy celebrities. I was clued off by one result I somehow happened upon, a wonderful skillfully edited image of JW as John Hammond, done by Borodin. That's when I started to suspect he may have been the one who did the Colonel Sanders photo.
     

     
    I continued my search with Borodin's username and that's when I eventually saw the image of Williams in the Colonel Sanders suit with his arms perfectly posed to hold a bucket of fried chicken that would make the Man and Arms and Gwildor cream in their pants.
     
    Anyway, we delivered the bomb.
