Colour of Magic Sky Movie

Postby Bouncy Castle » Sat Sep 19, 2009 6:40 pm

There's a "free pass" on Sky this weekend for Freeview viewers on Sky3 (Freeview 11, I think).

Colour of Magic was on this afternoon, with the second part tomorrow (Sunday).
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I've screen captured one of the scenes. I'm the one encircled in yellow, looking at the Luggage.

Did you actually get to talk to Sean and David? I caught some of it on youtube - is it my imagination or was the barman the same guy that played Banjo in Hogfather?

No you´re right both Banjo and the barman are played by Stephen Marcus :P . He also played Nick the Greek in Lock, stock and two smoking barrels.

I did get to speak to Sean quite a bit between takes. He was interested in the game of Thud we were playing. I did speak to Dave Jason a little bit - he took the mickey out of the hat I was wearing.

Yes, Tony, I pop up in various places in the film. I am one of the "zombiefied" star people, I was just behind Stren Witthel fighting when he gets kicked in the happy sacks and also one of the workman who drops the statue at the end.

So is he going to be the Jimmy Stewart of the Discworld movies?

For those who don't know (too young) Jimmy Stewart was in what seemed most of Alfred Hicthcock movies, mostly as a main character.
A legal Feegle? How could there be such a thing?

I actually watched this movie. They've cut a lot out from the actual book, but even though the Counterweight Continent is sufficiently analogized to 'China', I think Twoflower works much better as the 'gullible american tourist'.

I bought the DVD from Amazon (both parts + an introduction from TP). It's excellent :D

I finished watching it last night after work. I thought it was quite good. The casting was a bit off but otherwise very good for the budget they had.

Struggled to read the book but managed it in the end.

Listened to an Audio Book version on my MP3 Player but again struggled with Neil (The Young Ones) reading to me.....I keep waiting for the nauseating Rik Mayall to interrupt him.

Last night I watched the Sky Movie version and loved it.

For those members who have never heard of Rik Mayall he is described as an Alternative Comedian, I assume ''Alternative'' refers to the fact that he is not funny and therefore not a Comedian. (Personal observation)

I didn't see this before! I can't believe Jason actually saw the Luggage!
I won't say he knew Twoflowers and Rincewind because even if I liked the movie they were so not the true ones..I kept thinking what was Sam Gamgee doing with that shirt :lol:
Anyway it's wonderful, Jason is the first non-italian movie star I know!!! :P
