"I must have done something right in a previous life... can't imagine what that could have been"
am introducing the scaree one to the delights of The Demolition Man.
Wesley Snipes having a great time & Sandra Bullock doing a very nice acting job in her first major role.
Rather typical of Hollywood that one of the bad guys is black & the other is English (Nigel Hawthorne makes quite a good evil mastermind but lacks the brainpower of Sir Humphrey)
Unlike most SF films it actually feels like it's set in the future, not just the present with fancy gadgets.

Current Mood: contentcontent
Current Music: Wesley Snipes going OTT

Do you have your shell handy?

(I think the movie Demolition Man is great fun!)

Well I enjoyed it!

And anyone who disagrees can take their opinion and shovel it!

yes, I wonder if anyone ever did work out what you're supposed to do with the 3 seashells...

according to Sly,
" OK, this may be bordering on the grotesque, but the way it was explained to me by the writer is you hold two seashells like chopsticks, pull gently and scrape what’s left with the third. You asked for it…. Be careful what you ask for, sorry"

From the imdb:

For some non-American releases, references to Taco Bell were changed to Pizza Hut. This includes dubbing, plus changing the logos during post-production. Taco Bell remains in the closing credits. In the Swedish release the subtitles still use Taco Bell while the sound and picture has been altered as above.


Is it changed in the version you are watching?

no - I made very sure of that... If only to stop the scaree one singing the "Kentucky Fried Chicken & a Pizza Hut" song:-)
I must admit I had never heard of Taco Bell when I first saw this film & did wonder if they'd made it up *g*

Likewise, although in retrospect I should have asked Tachyon.

did you spot the literary reference - passed me right by but her nibs said "Lenina Huxley?!?"

it redeems Sly for the travesty that is Judge Dredd - not that he was to blame for that turkey, really
