Discussion in 'The Octopus' Den' started by Phil, Jan 13, 2005.
Which is your favourite of these film and television monster cephalopods?
So, I like everthing that has giants squids. I like the 20000 leagues under the sea, i watch it everyday!
Oh, come on! NO contest! Watching the Ray H. octo take apart San Francisco is the best !!!!
I would like to vote for the giant ammonite in Mysterious Island, but it tells me I have already voted
Don't understand that Kevin. I don't see why you can't vote (?)
There seem to be little glitches like this here and there at the moment. Hopefully Tony will get things sorted out soon. (Hope we can get the attachments back soon too, there are a lot of good photos in 'Fossils' that have gone AWOL).
In this poll I have no idea, why 'Dr Who' is in italics, I can't seem to edit the poll and people should only be able to post one vote. I doesn't say who voted for which option either though it did when I logged on earlier this morning. Strange.
i voted for 20,000 leagues, thats a real long lasting first impression from when i was a wee boy
I logged off and voted for the ammonite
Something fishy going on
I voted for the watcher but as a Kid the one that made the most impression on me was the cephy thing in Space 1999, Which we've discussed in another thread! Couldn't go to bed til I'd checked in the wardrobe and under the bed
Oh yes, that was scary Jean! It was the episode "Dragons Domain" circa about 1973 (I know as I've got in on DVD somewhere). If I can work out how to edit the poll I'll add it. Wish I'd included it in the first place!
i had to vote for octopus i/ii for two reasons.... first the second movie was so bad it makes your hair hurt and secondly (and definitely related to the first) i didnt think anyone would vote for 'em if i didnt...
I voted 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, but then saw that Reap the Wild Wind hadn't a single vote! Okay, so the squid in 20,000 is a classic, but c'mon: John Wayne only dies in a handful of all his films, and here he's taken-down by an Architeuthis! Plus, I guess I'm the only one, but where's The Road to Bali? Mysterious Island - excellent pic. Oh, and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea has both a giant octopus attack AND a giant squid attack!
I thought that the watcher in LOTR was pretty cool, but if I had to vote for a classic, 20 000 leagues would win the vote!
Personally, I think this film stinks, but where's Sphere? Okay, so the only squid you really get to see are supposedly Archi babies in egg cases (that look more like condoms - thanks to Steve, we all know better), but still, squid are prominently mentioned.
captain nemo is so cool
That is very true, until he got sucked down bya whirlpool or whatever...
Is there any way that I can possibly retrieve my vote and go for the dorky squid in "Reap the Wild Wind"? I know that democracy is a beautiful thing and all, but this squid ate John Wayne! What was I thinking?!
I vote for my boyfriend, Taco the Octopus Chef Guy or else he'll kill me.
Imagine what it would be like to be strangled with eight arms...
Bad Movie Alert!
Anybody notice how bad the Beast movie was? Come on!
In my unbiased opinion , Beast was the epitome of bad thinking and mixed up priorities.
HEAR HEAR!!!........I mean really porpoising giant squids.....mummy coming after her babies????????
how much linen would that've entailed?
