      The Silliest Chase of All Time

      You know we here at DRB love a good chase in a movie, but this... this...
      is as atrocious as it's royally silly. It's also captivating in a weird
      way and has to be seen to be believed - taken from "Alluda Majaka" (1995),

      The magical transformation continues. Although still very much a work in
      progress, the magnificence of Hogwarts castle is beginning to take shape
      above Hogsmeade as work continues on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
      Hogwarts will be the home of a thrilling, new, state-of-the-art attraction
      - Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey - that uses
      ground-breaking technology to bring the magic, characters and stories of
      Harry Potter to life in ways never before experienced. Set to open in
      Spring 2010 only at Universal Orlando Resort, The Wizarding World of Harry
      Potter will feature multiple themed attractions, shops and a restaurant.

The chase scene is terrible and basically animal abuse; they're using cables to trip the horses up. Horrible.

The plane over the bridge is a common sight in Leipzig/Germany.

An exclusive photo of the Harry Potter area? You mean, exclusive other than The Orlando Sentinel, which has been posting photos every week all along?

The plane crossing the bridge is also fairly common in Memphis, Tennessee; one of the Memphis airport's runways crosses an overpass right above a busy road approaching the terminal.

The guy jumping out of the car with the vinyl looks a bit like Tim Allen.

Blogger Jean said...

I hope those poor horses got to retire somewhere nice and quiet after that...

Blogger jgodsey said...

i was going to comment on those trip wires as well. this method actually kills horses and has been outlawed in the US for many decades. this video is horrific.

Blogger Vachel said...

You call that a silly chase scene? I see your horse abuse, and raise you ninjas on rollerskates.

The TRS-80 Model 100 - ha ha, very funny antiquated technology. I remember very well when that, along with the HP-34c, was the shiznit. Now, it's paraded as a funny relic. Ouch.

Why not scoff at Winky Dink and Billy Blastoff, while you're at it.

Won't be so funny when what you remember as the latest and greatest of the time gets dragged out for general mirth and derision.

And yes, a lot like Tim Allen.

The scene from the indian movie is really the dumbest thing I've ever watched, but the second one is for sure "Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus", just search utube for that, the trailer is something you guys must see! (or mustn't...)

Anonymous Tman said...

I love the movie scene! It's so over the top. So they hurt a few horses. Horses are replaceable. I just want one of those Magic Jumping Jeeps!

Blogger Elvee Kaye said...

That chase scene WOULD have been awesome if they hadn't shown such cruel disregard for the horses. I wonder how many broke their legs and had to be killed because some idiot director wanted more realism in his dumb movie.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Everyone associated with writing, directing, producing, and promoting that film should be dragged behind a horse through the worst streets in India.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

If it weren't for all that animal abuse that chase/action scene would have been great. As it is, it is actually sad...

Anonymous Anonymous said...

The horses that didn't fair well from filming that scene were slaughtered and eaten. Shame on all of you, there are starving children in India, why shouldn't they have a slab of horse meat? Horses are not unicorns, they are not angels who haven't gotten their wings, they are giant space and money wasting food vacuums.
