Okay, here's my first entry....





I've got another idea that I'm working on since it's just a tad more detailed.    ;D
I'm glad that I'm not the only one :)

Haha, excellent!

My private theory has always been that the entire movie was a hallucination of Farmer Hoggett's as he lay in bed with a fever or something. It makes more sense that way.

That's a great picture, Raven!

My private theory has always been that the entire movie was a hallucination of Farmer Hoggett's as he lay in bed with a fever or something. It makes more sense that way.

The film was IMO a travesty of Dick King-Smith's charming original book The Sheep Pig and the sequel to Babe, (Pig in the City) trebly so! But that's Hollywood for you!

Sorry for that outburst, films are often like Marmite (that reference may need explaining)!
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Hm, I never knew it was a book. I'll have to read it to substantiate my crackpot theory.

Like Marmite? You mean they taste like boot-scrapings?

I'll be coming up with something soon, now that contests for August are over on other boards, & the diorama contest is done on the PCC. My biggest problem is that I don't watch movies in the theatre - I haven't "been to the movies" in about 15-20 years, & the only things I watch on the computer are films from the 1930s up through the 1960s, but not beyond. We have TV but I never watch it, & I'm not even sure if we have cable - we have what we need to get Internet & that's it.

I'm an old-time horror & sci-fi fan, so I'll probably have to come up with some sort of creature or BEM! Again, I don't like anything made after 1970, so maybe a '40s Frankenstein or a '50s radioactive beast.... I'm horribly behind the times, but modern gore & blood-n-guts sci-fi is not my thing.

The last movie I saw new in the theater was Ed Wood Jr. That was awhile back.

This is my YouTube site (The Radio Ghost) which has a lot of the things I like to get into:
