I did see the first "Step Father" I believe he was in one or two "X-files" episodes, "Silver Bullit", "Young Guns" the aforementioned "Tombstone", and I'm sure there were a few more.

Yeah, of all of his characters, I liked The Stepfather the best. Well, the sheriff role in Silver Bullet is a close second. He looked sexy as hell in the cop uniform.

I don't think singing is a prerequisite.

well thats not so fun......

Dogma had too many locations/sets, too much switching between them and too much action. In stuff like Clerks, Phone Booth and Night Of the Living Dead, you can get around the other locations by having stuff happen off-stage or consolidating sets, but doing that with Dogma would be pretty much impossible


and no, stage production means a play.

fluffho
04-23-2004, 09:31 PM
oh. a play

my cousin was helping out with a play and i helped paint sets and they were practicing in the backgroud. there were some songs and dancing and actually i wanted to shoot myself

but, i do think it would be MORE fun if it had songs

Night of the Living Dead would be funny as a musical. Especially the scene in which the zombies burst into a soulful and dramatic chorus about eating brains.

Actually, "The Exorcist" could be done on-stage. Basically just a bedroom. It would be like being at a Gallagher show.

*singing (to the tune of Behind Blue Eyes)*
You don't know what it's like
to be a zombie
moaning and lurching
And eating brains!

I wasn't sure if anyone got my Gallagher reference. You know, the dude who breaks watermelons on stage and soaks the whole audience. Well with the "Exorcist" when she puked out the pea soup.......well...you see.

there's a lot of moving around in the first part of the movie, and there's the part about Sam and the sister, too.

Too many effects. Plus, it relied a lot on an atmosphere that you couldn't get in a play

Ya know, they say that Roddy McDowall had a huge weiner. Not that his weiner has any bearings on this topic. Just a little tidbit....errr. not so little tidbit.
