The headbutting thing I get, because you don't want your kids to be like those dirty stinkin Scots. But who the fuck is selling nunchuks in England? And why would you need a reason to buy them?

See, now, that's the reason I haven't just packed up and moved to Britian. If my Bruce Lee movies are wrong, I don't want to be right.

I don;'t understand it but yeah you couldn't show nunchucks. Basehart might be able to say whether that rule has been relaxed or not.

I suppose the reasoning is that one only needs to take a stroll to the local DIY shop to make some rudimentary ones.

Terribly weak as arguments go but I think that was it.

Well, when they released the 25th Anniversary version of Enter The Dragon here, they restored all the Nunchuk scenes, and given that Michaelangelo is using Nunchuks to kick some Foot ass once again, I'd say Nunchuks are A Ok in the Old UK.

When they did the special edition of E.T. did they put nun-chucks in instead of walkie-talkies for the asian market?

They must have fixed it after the BBFC changed personnel

Okay, here's a question: Did Moriarty say "Bon Voyage" or "Bomb Voyage?"
I myself thought he said Bon, and made a joke implying that the only thing keeping the director alive was the fact that he DIDN'T say Bomb voyage. Other riffs imply he DID say Bomb, however. Which is it?

Also, was anyone else severely dissapointed by the fact that they just made the nautalus a foo-foo version of a modern battleship, instead of a squid- looking thing, like in the graphic novel?

I thought he said Bomb, I'll consult the closed captions when I get a minute and let you know for sure.

I'm kinda glad I didn't read the graphic novel.  I don't think it would have helped me write that much more.  Splinter said it best "Anger clouds the mind."   It was a goofy movie anyway.  I'd be willing to bet that the majority of the people who saw it didn't read the graphic novel either.  To those who did, bonus levels of appreciation/hatred.

Yeah I didn't read the graphic novel either. And the script that I did submit was only up to about 45 minutes of the film. The rest was just (more) ridiculous.

Did everyone's script get dilluted towards the end again this time?  I, for one, know I did a lot better with this one than B & R and Speed.

   Yeah, our script just kinda puttered out near the end. With the big red tomato-man, the invisible knife fight, the "you're ready" line, it just killed us.

       P.S He said bomb. At least that's what the subtitles said on my computer.

Oh. Well, guess I gotta go hunt down the director. Promise is a promise.
