Watched it last week, & I thought it was cracking! Rincewind wasn't so bad after all, actually he was rather good - but I still don't think he should have been Albert :D

Jason, you will have to be more specific about where you are in the Drum. It was very dark in there & I couldn't make you out!

Agreed it is very dark.

When Twoflower first walks into the Drum he stops right in front of me before heading off towards the bar.

I am on the left hand side of the barrel in the middle of the bar playing Thud! with SaneAlex. I think as Twoflower walks off you see me make my killing move in Thud!

You see me several more times in the pub, knocking back a pint and also dodging out of the way of the Luggage as it heads for the stables.

Also when Rincewind kicks Stren in the family jewells I am fighting in the background and look over to see what is happening when Twoflower shouts smile.

I was looking for familiar faces in the Drum, but didn't spot you Jason. I think I saw Pat though. Must go and watch it again, knowing where to look.

And Tiffany, if I had to pick, I agree with you that Rincewind should have been younger, and Twoflower definetly chineese (or perhaps Japanese). But I still think the pair worked well in the movie.

Yes, Rincewind was good, but it seemed strange to see David Jason as another character.
We agree to differ :D

always pictured rincewind as quite tall , very thin, with a ratty type face even without the kirby illustrations. david jason could not be further away from my mental image of him. i still enjoyed tho :lol:

For some reason I just couldn't make myself watch Colour of Magic or Hogfather on the box - much as I like David Jason and his acting he cannot and never will be Rincewind unless he 'voices' him for animation or is cgi'ed into a tall skinny dude like Ray Winston was morphed into a barbarian lurve-god in Beowulf... :roll: . Sean Astin's a bit of a stretch for Twoflower as well but I can forgive him most things as he's such an intelligent actor.

I may be able to force myself to swell Tesco's coffers for Xmas but I'm having to think hard about it even after reading much positive feedback in here :wink:

Watched it here and really enjoyed it! :D Although, Tiffany, I do agree with all you mentioned. I didn't feel that Twoflower had to be Chinese, but Sean Astin in the role took a little getting used to. Vetinari was really hard to watch. The character came off as silly and crazy. It was done all wrong. David Jason wasn't a good Rincewind either. He pulled it off enough for me not to dwell on it (like the Vetinari thing), but they would have done better with a younger actor.

And, despite all my complaining, I really did enjoy it. :oops: :lol: So did hubby. :D And I spotted a couple of familiar faces!

Jan Van Quirm, The Hogfather is very good adaption of the book... far better than The Colour of Magic and I would recommend you getting a copy or waiting until Hogwatch............ sorry Christmas as it is sure to be shown again sometime. Tea Time is particularly evil and dark , darker than in the book to my eyes! And creepy........ :shock:
