Even though life right now has me doing the equivalent of a magic show, disappearing is not one of the associated acts. Even so, you are among my most esteemed friends. It's my fancy way of saying I've missed you too! ~~/o/ Alright, a fellow Svengoolie fan! This may be featured in the film's trivia page on imdb but in one of Sven's segments he mentioned how 4 (or was it 5?) models of the iconic car were made: all but one contained fiberglass so they could be setup for the crash sequences (which were gnarly cool) while the lone design was derived from metal (like how most vehicles from that time period were produced). Sorry, I'm unfamiliar with the Futurama reference but it's nice hearing what an influence even this cult horror classic has had in pop culture. I'm a regular follower of Svengoolie's weekly features, so I'll be sure to pay extra attention to each film showcased in case we'd like to share our insights. We're in good company, fellow traveler. ~~/o/ The Prestige (2006) ~~/o/ He tried so hard to be bad, he was just plain sad, meeting his fate by the end of his cape. ~~/o/ "These aren't the droids you're looking for." ~~/o/ "Impressive, most impressive..." - Darth Vader [also from The Empire Strikes Back] I honestly did not notice it until you said something. "The Force is strong with this one." [Star Wars, 1977] ~~/o/ I don't think he wanted to be an actual superhero anymore, only as a fake image to sell his tech to everyone to undermine the very thing he once idolized in his youth, Mr. Incredible. ~~/o/ What about a cover of "Grease Lightning" by Emperor Palpatine called "Force Lighting" with soldiers from the 501st Stormtrooper legion (Vader's Fist) and subordinates of his personal Royal Red Guard detachment providing back-up vocals and dance choreography? Darth Sidious: Alas, if only I never encountered Mace "Monday thru Friday to the face" Windu and his wretched woe he plagued my once impeccable singing voice. Now it sounds like a toad getting electrocuted while mating with Jar Jar Binks. What if... [Sidious appears, ready to belt out a song. Cue music in imperial hangar bay.] Why this Death Star problematic It's thermodynamic It's orbic Why it's force lightning (force lighting) We'll get some power converters and get some force sensitive locks oh yeah (keep laughing, whoa keep laughing) A fear-led deadline and terror imposed labor behind, oh yeah (I'll get the credits, I'll kill to get the credits) Wookies dying on the floor, our building secrets will be secured It no it ain't only an order, the dark side of the Force gives a cold shoulder In Force Lighting Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it! I am supreme. I'm Emperor Palpatine, by battle station superweapon laser beam Everyone will scream for mercy! [Sidious activates force lighting, levitating himself off the ground in menacing display] Lightning, lightning, lightning Lightning, lightning, lightning Lightning yeah ~~/o/ He knew children looked up to him. Whenever around young fans, who would eagerly come up to him, he never shooed them off like many others would have done in his position, especially given his overconfidence in himself. Did you know one of the earliest product endorsements he accepted, after making it big, was roach killer, of all things? ~~/o/ If a movie character, the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz (1939). Even though he doesn't have a heart, he displays so much compassion, humility, and meekness despite all he's been through (being dismembered by his own ax under the Wicked Witch of the West's spell). Can't help but feel inspired. As for a real person, hmmm...??? ~~/o/ View all replies >
