Crop And Save
Hitler: The Rise of Evil (2003)
$12 million budget?
What exactly was the budget of this?
£8 million like The Gathering Storm, Dr Zhivago.
$8 million like Henry VIII, Charles II?
The Circus Krone speech was magnificent. I thought Robert Carlyle would be good but nowhere near as hypnotic over the loud speaker as that: We see how his filth and creed have staggered the heart of this great country!!! Beautiful!
If only Anthony Hopkins had been 20 to 30 years younger, he may have been even better, don't you think. His oratory power is even more impressive, as was demonstrated in his shouting in Dracula and Nixon.
A pity a trilogy cannot be made like Lord of the Rings.
Doctor Who (1996)
What if the movie had worked?
Just suppose the film had been a reasonable success and maybe gained 10 million viewers in the United States, not that I agreed at all with a US co-production. £3.3 m is not a lot of money, even in 1996 for the BBC themselves to fork out.
According to Bidding Adeau, there would have been at least 6 other films. Perhaps the next set in the future on a space station penned by Terry Nation? Maybe another with The Cybermen and one with the Daleks?
I think if the TV series in 2005 works. There should be in parallel like DS9 ran along with Voyager, there should be an attempt to fill the gaps without running into Attack of the Cybermen syndrome. Maybe a few McGann films to see what happens between him and Christopher Eccleston's first appearance.
The half-human thing and kiss can be all but forgotten. A new TARDIS set.
If anything I would like to see more of McGann's Doctor. In that rape programme Lying he looked fantastic, still young enough.
