That fan is insane!
Most iconic film is the Notebook. Great. Looking at some of the others, like New Mexico's, I guess it could've been worse. (Like Connecticut's.)
A giant ice Vader. That's rather cool.

They used green screen or blue screen with the original Star Wars trilogy. Why are they bothering with another Gi Joe movie?

LEGO my TARDIS!
The Japanese have always had cool Star Wars stuff.
I saw the Red Skull guy earlier this week. All I can think is how much he doesn't look like the Red Skull....

Maurice Mitchell said...

Good point Pat. They did but he's specifically referring to the overuse in the prequels which were ALL green screen sets.

Maurice Mitchell said...

I thought the same thing David. He just looks like a weirdo. Maybe it's the beard...

Yeah 2001 is ok for Arizona but I wish I lived in California.

Wow, to cut off your nose... Seriously, how the hell would he ever get past airport security? Or get a job?

I feel sorry for that guy who did that to himself. What in the world was he thinking? Seriously. He could have done an awesome cosplay and left it at that. Great link list this week guys!
