Land of the Lost,
I am hoping (HOPING) that the movie is equal parts jokey and respectful to the original show. I know, I might be naive, but I can hope. Right?
Well, at least we can guess they'll use Smash Mouth's "All Star" as the end title theme.
Oh, no. I didn't think of that and you are probably horribly terribly right.
As a fan of the original, I'll admit to being cautiously optimistic for two reasons:1) The 90s remake series already did all the bad touching; even the worst things about the trailers don't bother me like that did, and everything I've seen so far has me thinking that the movie can't possibly out-travesty the 90s version.2) There's a fair amount of evidence in the trailers, etc, that they're keeping the "pocket" universe aspect and not just going with straight-ahead time travel, and someone has in fact been cast as Enik,* not to mention the original Pakuni dictionary is being dug up and used. All that really remains to win me over is confirmation that Pylons (and ideally Skylons) are at least mentioned.*And come on, the idea of the jerky Farrel version of Marshall continually going back and pestering Enik for favours in a gag on all the "again you annoy me, Rick Marshall" scenes from the show has possibilities...
Jack Norris, you make some very good points!
I suppose this would be a bad time to mention...I'd never seen the original LotL until the Sci-Fi channel the other day. I'm busy trying to find "Mystery Island" with a refitted B-9 Robot...My son thinks it looks funny, though, so we'll probably hit the cheap theatre in a month or so. Or next week, depending.
At least they got the Sleestak right. So far, that looks to be about it.Somehow Enik reminds me of a chicken.
Oh well done. Bad movie is equal to rape. Clearly. Awesome.
Internet meme. Look it up.
I say your childhood wasn't raped, I say she went into that bar dressed like a slut, drank herself stupid, hit on every swinging Dick in the joint and then took that preppie guy home. I think your childhood ran to the RA the next morning and claimed rape because if her daddy finds out she's been whoring around, he's cutting off the trust fund. I think Detective Stabler's gonna get to the bottom of this, too. Of course I've been wrong before.
