    @1Dgaf When the two of you are talking about a midget in black in Dune, were you getting confused over whether it was Shadout Mapes:



    or Alia Atreides:



    If it was the latter, that was no midget, it was 8-year-old Alicia Witt:

    I was going to point out the actress in "Year of Living Dangerously" was Linda Hunt, who won an award for her portrayal of a young bloke of short stature.... words fail me on that one.

    Otherwise, she's now more wellknown as the main commanding person of Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J in "NCIS:LA" alongside Robocop executive man Bob Morton AKA Miguel Ferrer.

    As to the film "The Crow", I felt it was trapped between trying to be a mainstream Hollywood style film and the dark underground comic it was based on, never finding that middle ground.

    Good soundtrack though.

    Jesus, you want to start on Wes Anderson now ? :D

    If anything, I suppose he's an acquired taste, what with his whimsical charm and sense of theatre. It's not for everyone, but seeing The Life Aquatic in a pokey lil' cinema remains a highlight. Plus, he keeps Bill Murray in work, and introduced Seu Jorge to my ears so he can't be all that bad.

    I suppose Martin just has better taste.......

    Keep forgetting about your podcasts due to an erratic bumping of this thread, so I'll get to the two previous episodes (pre-Fatal) sharpish.

    I totally missed "Fire in the Sky" but I was around during the UFO era. Blimey, that felt like it went on forever!

    We are all far too cynical nowadays...I blame Trump!

    I meant to say, in your Fire in the Sky one you're giving the one actor a load of grief over the fact that he's in the UFO and never says anything, other than "Spacesuits?"; surely that's down to the scriptwriter, director and, potentially, editor for not giving him any lines to speak, or removing them from the film?

    I can't comment on his delivery in the rest of the film, been way too long since I saw it, which you you said was particularly wooden, unless he was so bad that they had no choice but to cut out his lines during the abduction scenes, but hell, if that was the case I'd be wanting to know why he wasn't replaced!

    There was something I was going to say about the Fatal Attraction one, but it was near the start so I need to listen to it again, hopefully remind myself what it was.

    @1Dgaf Yeah, it was about how they didn't have him fighting back against the aliens, but in the book he said he did.

    I still love bits of delicatessen, but trying to watch it the other month I found the pacing all of the pace. And I didn't really detect any kind of a plot.

    Still, it's probably still one of Jenuet's best films. I still haven't seen City of Lost Children, but of his other films, I've only really enjoyed A Very Long Engagement (and that's hardly a brilliant film). And the least said about Caro's directing after this film the better. It turned out the new wave of Cinema du look was kind of a disappointment, but at least the 90s gave us some very successful French actors (although I only really recognise Pinon in this particular production and then only really in other productions by Besson and Jeunet).

    @1Dgaf Not finished the whole ep, yet, but have to ask what format you're playing from and what kind of player you're using? What you're describing kind of sounds a bit like when I tried to play a particular DTS soundtrack off a blu-ray when my PS3 was set only to pass on PCMIA (?) audio on the HDMI and it ended up a garbled mess, normal dialogue was practically nonexistent as it wasn't being sent to my centre speaker and only coming out as whispers in the surround channel and other parts of the audio were all over the place, phasing in and out. Up to that point I hadn't realised the mistake in my setup, it was just the sound output on this one blu-ray that had been created in a very specific format that exposed the problem.

    Netflix on a Roku box on a three-year old TV. Print was excellent.

    I tried to watch a trailer of it on my computer later, to see if the audio was any better. It didn't appear to be.

    The one you posted above?

    Not a huge amount of unsung dialogue, but what there is appears clear to me and, barring the vigorousness of the singing, at an equally audible level. There's a certain amount of hiss, but understandable given the age and budget they were working on.

    Then there was something about my illness and the quality of the recording and songs, that made it terribly difficult to listen to. And because I couldn't discern what they were singing - at least for large parts of most of the songs - and there weren't any subtitles, that compounded my frustration.

    TRON suffers in retrospect, by being a product of Disney's kid film division in the 80s. David Warner is on monstrous form, but he's in it so very little, and the whole story is basically bobbins. I'm not even that much of a fan of the suits and the live action stuff, being hampered by materials to basically be as grainy as something out of the 1930s. The best bits are the early 3d stuff done by ILM I think it was.

    I'd even go so far as to say Tron: Legacy is a better all round package.
