  1. I prefer Judy + Gene.  Take this with a grain of salt, because I only have a vague idea of what I'm talking about, but I prefer Judy in the barn, in a tap-dance-off, rather than being lead around the ballroom floor doing a quickstep.  Not that Judy is an inelegant dancer or anything, but I think I prefer her dancing with Gene.

    Just thinking more about it, to me the best example in this movie of how Phil Silvers normally is was the cow milking scene. He tricks Gene Kelly into doing something for him and then is saucy to the cow. 

    Speaking of that cow milking scene, I was waiting for Gene to make a “this is udderly ridiculous” joke.  He didn’t 😒

    Here's a deep cut that I'm not even sure holds up anymore. I use to love Duckman in which Tim Curry had a reoccurring role as King Chicken. To this day when I think of  Tim Curry as many times as I've seen this movie I still think of "Bwahaha buck buck buck"

    Fun Tim Curry fact. He was the original Joker is Batman TAS. He was doing Captain Hook for Peter Pan animated Saturday cartoon so he was cast as the Joker on the new upcoming Batman cartoon. He got sick and the part had to be recast. Now to me Mark Hamill will always be my Joker but one can't help but wonder how he would have been with Tim Curry voicing him.

    I remember Duckman so why can’t I remember king chicken? 😫

    I think he is a villain but his actions move the characters to figure things about about themselves and we are never really asked to forgive him for his actions but rather because Tim Curry's performance and charm you end up kinda liking loving him and doing it anyway. In the end I find the songs catchy and the whole production fun that I always sit through it all despite issues I might have it.

    FTFY -  I kind of brought it up earlier, but I really hate seeing Frank get killed off even though he is the villain because of that☝️

    Question for the group - what are your favorite Tim Curry performances/characters?  I think mine is Wadsworth from Clue.

    This is a great time to get inside this crazy ass plot, cause I'm not totally sure if I really know either. I think it's because he became too passive in his duties to their home planet? And they were tired of keeping an eye on him? 

    Also, are you referring to the Live version on TV?

    Yes...the tv version starring Laverne Cox and directed by the guy who did High School Musical. 

    I dunno, I’ve always felt the deaths at the end were out of place. Don’t these aliens believe in due process?! 😆

    I'm having a hard time conveying intent in written comments lately.  Please take these as neither pro nor con, just commenting.

    1) I got a half-hour in the first time then shut it off when the match seemed set but there was still an hour to go.  I also had no captions on and it was very hard to follow.  I rewatched it all the way through with captions and enjoyed it.  I agree with what people were saying about they really went for something.  I viewed it as kind of a Chess-style musical.  Trying to build a world then focus on a few people in it.


    I watched with captions and it didn’t help me. Like I knew they were speaking English, but I couldn’t understand what they were talking about.

    I'm not sure if everybody knows the rules of snooker or looked them up. Admittedly you don't really need to know them to watch the movie but what the Vampire did was actually super impressive. 147 is the perfect snooker score. See, you have to pot a red ball which is worth one point. If you pot one you are allowed to take a shot at any colour ball next. The colours go up in value (yellow, green, brown, blue, pink) with black being worth the most at seven points. If you pot any ball before it's turn (you sink all the reds and then move down the colours accordingly) that ball is replaced on the table in its starting position. The Vampire did this with every red ball, alternating red and black, and didn't miss to achieve the perfect score of 147. It is also implied he did this more than once before the mid match break, which makes it even more impressive. Maybe he did have powers after all.

    What do you mean, "pot" a ball?

    Re: powers, so was he or was he not a vampire?  Do vampires have telekinesis?  Why did he "freeze" during his interview?  What the heck is this movie?

    Was anyone else annoyed that he wouldn’t just come out and tell her he was a vampire? It’s not like “vampires” are an obscure creature from folklore. I’m sure it would go down like this:

    Guy: I’m a vampire.

    Gal: Whatever.

    Guy: No, seriously.

    Gal: Prove it.

    ::he proves it::

    Gal: Oh, I guess you are a vampire. Are you going to eat me?

    Guy: No.

    Gal: Oh, okay then.

    I just don’t think it would be as big of a deal as the movie suggests.

    But didn't he at one point get fixated on her neck as if to bite?  Granted, he stopped himself in time, but maybe he was afraid he wouldn't be able to once he turned full vampire?  Speaking of which, how come Sara didn't want to bite his neck, especially if she was turning into a vampire faster?

    How the fuck did he find this therapist? Does she specialize in vampires? She said something about keeping the neck brace on because this wasn't her first time or something like it was to protect her neck from him or help him by not seeing her jugular ( Yet she's wearing it during the phone call. So was she attacked by a former patient? Is that what she meant?!) . She was always 100% on board no questions about the idea this kid thinks he was turned into a vampire by a weird exchange student ( and maybe sexuality assaulted?) . Also fully ok with hearing that he supposedly had his teeth ground down even though that would do nothing to stop the jaw pain he was experiencing. Like not worrying that her client is making rash cosmetic surgery decisions... Especially if he is in fact a new vampire. Do we think Blondie ( I refuse to learn his name) has vampire caused body dismorphia? 

    Apparently she was a parapsychologist according to her office door?  But I think she was more qualified than the dentist, who identified the pointy teeth as incisors even though they were canines.  A dentist not knowing the difference between incisors and canines was one of the most unbelievable things in the movie tbh.
