The same could be said about your mother's beaver, TREBEK!

An old man and his goat.  He must be senile.

I sorta liked League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

/WTF do I know?

Wow, that looks like crap.  And I don't just mean the story or the writing, I mean it's really sub-par animation.

Don't know, but he IS Scottish...

He's going out like Orson Welles.

You're the man now dog!

Jesus, man, there must be a million independent directors that would give their left nut for you to be in their film. You already have more money that god, just choose one of those that sounds promising and go out on THAT.  

As far as this film goes, the animation looks worse than some of the morning "educational" cartoons my five year old watches every day.  Seriously, it looks like Handy Mandy or something.

"How the hell did SIR BILLI sound like a good idea?"

Because Sir Sean is now an old man trying to get into Heaven.

/nod to Cosby

Friend of mine came up with the perfect Connery sentence:

He was smoking a cigar...on the escalator.

Try not to hear it in his voice.

There WERE some entertaining parts, but honestly, it changed too much for me to have really enjoyed it.

I remember that joke. Good reference.

Read the lyrics to Warren Zevon's Werewolves Of London in Connery speak. Comedy gold

Oh my Gawd.....I'll be laughing all day at that one.

Somebody should also mention this to Gene "Welcome to Mooseport" Hackman before it's too late.

The animation looks on par with the PC "Hobbit" game from 10 years ago!
And the voice over guy sounds like they could get a real voice over guy so they found the guy in the office with the deeper voice.

I found it quite entertaining (having Peta Wilson in it didn't hurt).

Jesus.  That clip was so bad it makes me want to barf up guns.
 
2013-08-21 07:53:04 AM  
Most famous beaver? Sheena Easton?
 
2013-08-21 07:58:37 AM  
Mother Trebek's Beaver would make a nice Fark handle.
 
2013-08-21 08:30:02 AM  
Well, it looks terrible enough that I fully expect to see it on Netflix streaming sometime in the near future, possibly distributed by Asylum.

Yeah, but one of the best things about the comic was how completely farked up everyone was. AND how Mina Murray was the leader who pulled the team together.

Apparently, when it comes to home-grown animation and 3D models, the old maxim is a lie.  If it's Scottish, it's crap.

Well, you won't *see* him, but he did lend his voice to Martin Scorsese as narrator of Marty's new film (tentatively* scheduled to opening this fall) entitled The Wolf of Wall Street. It's a step, anyway.


*Marty does so dearly love to tinker with his editing.

The preview's animation was so awful, even Video Brinquedo thought it sucked.
 
2013-08-21 11:05:18 AM  
Thishh looksshh like schitt.
 
2013-08-21 11:24:38 AM  
AHAHAH, I see someone has already given the Zardoz tag.

What sucks is that when I think about it, the potential premise of Zardoz is interesting. They just kind of, uh, farked it up.
 
2013-08-21 12:34:17 PM  
Wish I could post the picture of the skateboarding grandpa that says, " I would give a fark, but I already gave it to your grandma".

Rockstar Games?  The GTA people?  That are based in New York?

Dammit, that didn't go through right... Rockstar North, though, is based in Scotland.

Col. Gentleman is a better Sean Connery at this point than Sean Connery.
 
2013-08-21 06:01:47 PM  
Wow that must have been the best animated film ever made in 1982.
 
2013-08-21 11:21:32 PM  
That's not even straight-to-DVD quality.

That can happen when everyone involved in a film stay tripping balls the whole time
