Monster of the Day #991

Dude, how do you miss at that range?!

  • Flangepart

    Humm…he thought the greenscreen image would be taller than it was?

    Hey, it’s Royal Dano. Just saw him last night playing John Brown, spot on. Mostly did westerns so you think he could shoot straight. Has a good number of sci-fi/fantasy/horror roles. He had the right look for many genres.

    They weren’t aiming at the dinosaur. See, the dinosaur just managed to get back to warn them…”Behind me…huge monster…tried to stop him…” And then the much taller monster showed up.

    As for Royal Dano, well, I’ll be greased and fried!

  • Chris Metzinger

    If you can believe, these were top-quality, Oscar-nominated effects! Lost to Mary Poppins…

    Hey, I just remembered, to be fair to the shooter, Nessie here grew vary rapidly when out of water so Royal could have been shooting at where he thought the monster would be when the bullet crossed that point. It is all simple physics partner.

    How is an apatosaur like Patrick Swayze?

    ‘I thought you’d be bigger.’

  • Rock Baker

    Well, it is more difficult to line up your shot when the thing you’re aiming at isn’t on the set with you. And to be fair, this scene moved so quickly, I doubt anyone took notice of any of the shots being errant.

  • Flangepart

    Royal Dano…
    “Book ’em, Your Highness.”

  • As soon as a good pun comes up for Nessie, I wanna be the one to use it. Just wanted to put a loch on that right now.

    (Yeah, yeah, it was a reach but I’ve been struggling with coming up with one for hours and my brain was starting to hurt.)

  • Eric Hinkle

    I seem to remember those guys were drunk off their backsides when they did this.

  • SteveWD

    Yeah, Jim Danforth’s effects had bad luck getting beat by Disney on Oscar wins. A few years later When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth was beat by Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

  • Rock Baker

    Sounds like he should’ve been working for Disney!
