You called me vultan twice.
Yes. From my OTL perspective, I think that '80s action movies and their bleed-through to stuff like Rocky and Aliens was sort of symptomatic of the decade's culture as a whole (America fuck yeah, greed is good, etc.) But from TTL's perspective it looks more like a trend kicked off by Superman.Sounds like interpretation change due to different context rather than an actual change to the films in question.
I'd say the biggest of the adaptations are slightly-more-adultish (e.g. Batman, Captain America), the smaller adaptations are more kid-friendly (e.g. The Flash), and the original ones tend to fill the much-more-adultish action niche.Funny, somehow I would have thought the opposite would have occured with more 'adultish' versions of classics to both interest an older viewer as well as tapping into their nostaglia, and then a bunch of lower budget, 'kid-friendly' superhero knockoffs.
I have plans...BTW, this does raise some interesting questions as to the direction of Bruce Willis' career.
Sorry to say that I think it's basically the same film as Terminator 2: Judgment Day with a different title. Remember that the convention has developed as "[Sequel Title]: [Series Subtitle] [#]" rather than "[Series Title]: [Sequel Subtitle] [#]" (with the exception of The Star Wars, and even then it's because of the "Chapter" thing). So the movie needed a more appropriate name than "Judgment Day" since Judgment Day doesn't actually happen in the movie.Ooh, you need to give more details of this alternate Terminator sequel!!
Arnold has lived in the United States since 1968. He actually has a dialect coach to maintain his Austrian accent, since it's become his trademark. In TTL he's not a superstar, so there's no motivation to keep it. (I'd imagine that his normal speaking voice circa 1991 in TTL is still semi-Austrian, but he can mask it completely while acting.)Did he do better in some way than OTL? While he certainly has suppressed his accent, I would hardly call his current one OTL 'flawless American'.
I know they're very different, but I'm talking about nostalgia. Neoconservatives etc. are more likely to remember Eagle's Fury before Red Dawn (though not necessarily in place of Red Dawn).Don't know about that - Red Dawn was a cultural happening onto itself - Eagle's Fury is military genre, whereas Red Dawn is hard core survivalist, dude.
I liked Mel in "The Trial of a Time Lord", but in her season with Sylvester McCoy she became seriously annoying.I'm not a Mel hater - but your alternate companion sounds much preferable, so if I have to choose, I'll go with yours.
Oh, please make things better, please please please!
