One of the most creative ways i've seen of calling out a farker in a headline and getting away with it.

DarkPascual: Heard that Lucas wanted Mifune to be Obi Wan, didn't know about the Vader bit.

Would have been cool to have him on either role, but Mifune as Kenobi would have changed drastically how the character came across... less a wise old teacher and more a rugged war veteran.


Mifune had the supernatural ability to display the most emotion in the shortest length of film of any actor I've ever seen. For the life of me, I can't imagine Lucas putting that talent to good use.

Wasn't Looking at his Neck: DANCE TIME!!!


Oh, he was *such* a badass in Drunken Angel. His first collaboration with Kurosawa, incidentally.


Wasn't Looking at his Neck: I missed TMLO's arrival? Ah well...


Never fear!

We'll throw in an oldie but a goodie!

scumbucket: Being this is the internet and all, I'm kinda surprised a simple search doesn't turn up videos of Mifune's fight scenes with CGI light sabers added in. Shoot, I'd be happy with any Samurai movie given that treatment. Are you listening, Disney? I will pay good money to see "Zatoichi vs the Sith Lords"...


I shudder to think of the folks who wouldn't.

Couldn't hurt!

Pretty much this.

You guys have explained too much and spoiled it all.  Like UFIA, TMLO theatre must be a complete surprise, otherwise it doesn't have organic appeal.  It exists on a quantum level- the act of discussing it destroys it.

Which movie had the gayest over tones, Top Gun or Roadhouse?

While Top Gun had the shower scene, and talk of riding tail, it was more effeminately queer.

Now Roadhouse had the line "I used to fark guys like you in prison" which is more butch, but still homo sexual.  Then we have patrick swayzes lesbian style mullet and his outfits that were just a little too form fitting and a shirt that was always coming off to show his smooth, hairless chest.

Plus, was the Sam Elliot character also an old lover?  Hence the revenge rampage he went on?

What of the leading ladies(no not Cruise) but Kelly Mcgillis and Kelly Lynch?  Kelly was sorta attractive but is a real life lesbo and looks likes like an older version of Susan "Stop" the insanity powers.  Lynch has held up better but I feel her roll in Roadhouse was more of a beard.

Kyro: NowhereMon: I got banned for calling out farkers in a headline once, but this gets greenlit.
[2.bp.blogspot.com image 400x360]

Did you use their username in the headline? Because this one didn't. The devil's in the details, and knowing that might make you want to gripe less.


The only thing that makes that headline notable is the fact that it references a Farker. Just because it doesn't have the exact combination of characters that is the username is irrelevant, it is still just as much of a call out. And this is Fark, it is all about complaining about inconsistent administration and moderation is par for the course, nay, an art in its own right, deal with it.

In fairness, Tampopo is one of my favorite movies of all time. And Juzo Itami one my favorite directors.

I have something here for you. Your father wanted you to have this when you were old enough, but your uncle wouldn't allow it. He feared you might follow old Obi-Wan on some damn fool idealistic crusade like your father did.

Jedi's the most insulting installment! Because Vader's beautiful black visage is sullied when he pulls off his mask to reveal a feeble, crusty, old white man! They tryin' to tell us that deep inside we all wants to be white!


Well, isn't that true ?
