He's such a cool critter, too bad they killed him when they could have used him as a pet for Burton. Anyone thinks it looks like a cross between Dom Deluise and Edward G. Robinson (The Nahh see Nahh guy) and a meatball with eyes?

It always makes me think of the beholders from D&D. But that's just because I am a nerd Very Happy

Total rip-off of a beholder, yet It's neat to see one on film. Are there any other movies that have a beholder in it?

To be clear, it hurts my soul to even admit I saw this 'film' D&D had a beholder in it.

AAAAAGH! MY EYES! Shocked

I recall watching somewhere on the DVD an outtake where a scene featuring Jeremy Irons comes to a close- as the director yells, "Cut!" Jeremy Irons angrily storms off the scene. Apparently he knew the movie was going to be a bomb.

I think Thora Birch knew that as well- it accounts for her wooden delivery throughout the movie (and she can act)

THAT, my friends, is what they call in Hollywood: "contractual obligations."

By the way, referring to the Guardian as a clean-shaved meatball reminds me of Meatwad.

Who thinks he looks like an eye-ball infested head of Edward G. Robinson?

There was so much wrong with that movie that I don't know where to begin. Jeremy Irons should be ashamed he even signed on. Really, from the two 'main characters' alone, you knew it was going to suck. The wizard girl, not Thora but the other one, was easy on the eyes though. Not enough to save the movie, but more like getting a piece of candy after your scrotum has been torn off.

Hmm... not much compensation, is it?

Unless it's chocolate...

Nah, not good enough. Wink

Does anyone who know Edward G. Robinson is?

And why did they kill the Guardian? he was a harmless little critter. Can you imagine if the Ghostbusters met that thing?

If the Ghostbusters met him he would die. They would think he was a ghost, shoot him with their nuclear accelerators, and then he would explode, bringing them to the realisation that he wasn't a ghost.
