Time for some semi-random pictures.
I knew that
FHM slappers glamour model photoshoots were retouched, but I had no idea just how much. Behold Emma Bunton:
And this is a link to a picture drawn in biro on several joined A4 sheets. It’s about seven screens tall.
And, Joy-o-Joy! I’ve re-discovered the ultimate Star Wars Nerd site, where some guy has
wasted invested ten years into the most exhaustive obsessiveness you’ve ever seen. Try something like this:
Some reviewers have complained about the fact that R2-D2 and C-3PO knew characters such as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menace yet seemed unfamiliar with them in the classic trilogy.
This is an unfair criticism, based on a needlessly narrow interpretation of the older movies…C-3PO is a protocol droid, a sort of valet, and is programmed for keeping confidential information…When Obi-Wan began to tell Luke a tale about Anakin and the Jedi, Threepio requested to be shut down, likely to avoid discussion and facing awkward memories about his Maker’s tragic fate. Nevertheless the supposedly inert droid was only pretending unconsciousness; as he eavesdropped on the conversation he swayed slightly but visibly. This evasive behaviour was prompted by Threepio’s recognition of Anakin’s lightsabre.
Beat that if you can!
EDIT: Yes, I know C-3PO gets his memory wiped at the end of the third movie – in true nerd style, it’s largely a ghost site – most of the content is about five years old. It’s rather funny as further down the page he says having the droids mind-wiped would be a hack’s lazy way out
