Madame Sky's eyes suddenly fly open and she jerks up into a sitting position, gasping, her eyes darting around.

After a few moments, she begins to check her pockets.

Every time I see that logo I expect the "dinna-dinna-dinna-dinna" Ghostbusters theme intro to start playing. That's how iconic that moment was for me, and many people I'd expect.

So, was pretty easy for me to guess.

I'll get a pic up soon.

Angelica Crosley whispers something to Penelope Lancaster.

I try to squeeze in “You crack me up little buddy” whenever I can.

By the way.... Is the voice of Bill in Lamplight City the same voice actor as Max? If not, then her sure does sound exactly like him at times.

Angelica Crosley whispers something to Ret. Col. Maximus Burnes.

Penelope Lancaster whispers something to Angelica Crosley.

As Penelope pulls the tablecloth in haste from Graham Harlington's corpse he tumbles disturbingly off from his chair and onto the floor, still maintaining his slumped sitting position stiffly.

She bundles the tablecloth under Madame Sky's back, cushioning her violent thrashing somewhat.

Madame Sky's mouth seems to be trying to form words in her unconscious state but no sound, except for a faint strangled gasping, can be heard.

Suddenly, and shockingly, Madame Sky's body begins to spasm violently!!!

Her flailing foot knocks over a nearby chair and sends it sliding across the floor into the wall!

Her back repeatedly arches and collapses, slamming back into the floor with horrible thuds!

While her eyes remain closed, her mouth makes the soundless gasping motions of a fish trying to breathe out of water!

Angelica Crosley whispers something to Penelope Lancaster.

Angelica Crosley performs some kind of test, using some compact equipment she produces from her pocket, on the glass Madame Sky drank from.

Maybe choose a more popular and current game. Not a commercial title of course.

You all see Madame Sky twitch slightly and hear a low, brief moan from her before she once again lies still and falls silent.

Penelope Lancaster whispers something to Angelica Crosley.

Dr. Gerald Killmurray hands the empty bottle of Calmative Pills to Angelica Crosley.

I think there were several reasons why interest was so low.
  • The game in question was not interesting at all.

This was the reason for me.

I've called people on my phone by mistake and just left the message "Nevermind" after hanging up.

Sounds like adventure game dialog logic.

Actually, is there an adventure game where you go to talk to an NPC and see no new dialog options and just click "Nevermind" instead and the NPC says "What do you mean, "nevermind"? You takin' the piss?" and you have to engage in a new long conversation about useless chit-chat?

That could be awesome!

Yeah, you told me that in a dream the night before I painted the image, don't you remember? This is exactly the reason I did draw it this way ;-D

Gettin' all kinds of David Lynch creepy there.

As for the original shot, it's still Disney. If they wanted more background detail, they could have afforded it. Making the background empty was a deliberate artistic choice.

I think you're right in this case. But actually the image of Disney being willing to shell out unlimited funds on every project is not always the case, especially when Aladdin came out.

Aladdin came out at a time when Disney was still struggling back from the verge of bankruptcy. They almost went under due to a lackluster string of films during the 70s and 80s. The Little Mermaid had been their first hit in ages and, while praying that Aladdin was going to continue that trend, they weren't going to risk it all on the project.

Much of the CGI used during the magic carpet escape from the Cave Of Wonders were placeholders (and it shows) but they had already run out of budget and were forced to leave them as is. Luckily the audience of the time was still wowed by CGI in animated films and didn't notice too much how truly shoddy it was.

For the same budget reasons the final scene had to be cut. Remember how the movie starts with the travelling peddler who is our narrator? And he is also voiced by Robin Williams? It always seemed odd to me that the narrator never returns at the film's end to bring us back out of the story.

Well, he was supposed to. And the scene would have revealed him to actually be the Genie who had disguised himself as a human to travel the world after being set free. This is also why the peddler has the now non-magic lamp in his possession.

But all the money was gone so they, sadly, had to cut this scene which I think would have made Aladdin even more of a masterpiece of animation than it already is.

Interesting example Blondbraid. And just gave me a thought:

Perhaps one extra reason why they show the treasure trove in the background in the live action version is because it's an actual set they spent money on and want to show it off as much as possible to justify that. Whereas in the animated version it would have cost extra money to show it in the scene where it wasn't needed so, wisely, they did not.
