Nooooooooooooooo! Can't Post

If I see one more cliched slow motion scene where one character is killed/injured/seems to be killed and another character shouts NOOOOOOOO! in slow motion, I'm going to scream Nooooooooooooo! and switch the tele off or leave the cinema, or fast forward The Hobbit DVD.

Surely we can have some more original and interesting reactions? And while we're on the subject of cliches, a big villain going RAAAR! or somesuch at every opportunity? Really?

Quota [In reply to] Can't Post

The Screenwriters' Guild specifies a quota of one Wilhelm Scream and one "NOOOOOOOO!!' per film. The Hobbit:AUJ conforms to those guidelines, as did FOTR.

Seriously, the writers are kind of in a bind when it comes to such scenes-- what could the character reasonably say? Perhaps "Mashed Potato!" (non-native English speakers: you need to have watched a golf tournament to understand the latter suggestion).

Don't mess with my favorite female elf.

Well, I wonder what the alternatives would be? [In reply to] Can't Post

Probably a lot of expletives, but I doubt that would be appropriate. So NOOOOOOO works for me. And I assume you are referring to Azog's RAAAR when the eagles lifted the company out of his grasp? That was the only real 'RAAAR' that I recall at least. Actually I really liked his RAAAR, considering he really isn't human and wouldn't have a human-like reaction. I think of him as more animal than not, so something animal-like was appropriate, I felt. Of course now HE could have gone off cursing in Orcish and we'd never know what he was saying, so wouldn't take offense. Tongue

Just out of curiosity, what should Thorin have said when he saw his grandfather beheaded? And what would Azog have said or done in the circumstance I was referring to? Ideas?

I'm a native English speaker and have no idea what "Mashed potato" means. [In reply to] Can't Post

But maybe thats because I would rather stick redhot needles in my eyes than watch a golf tournament.

This is a good point... [In reply to] Can't Post

...there is a distinct lack of catchphrases in these movies. If Ay Caramba! is deemed ethnically insensitive, I suggest a shrug followed by "Well, them's the breaks!"

In which scene [In reply to] Can't Post

in fellowship did the willhelm scream feature?

Honestly, couldnt they insert an orcish scream in there, from the vast resources they have?

Someone must do the same with the goblin town massacre.One wilhelm scream for each goblin that is set aside by the log holding dwarves....probably 5 screams per stroke.

Perhaps you could suggest an original reaction.... [In reply to] Can't Post

...to the sight of a friend/relative/companion being killed or apparently killed in front of your eyes. What sort of thing did you have in mind?

I'd say that it's become a cliche precisely because that's what crisis moments do feel like in real life, even down to the slow motion. There's a moment when a person realises that the worst thing they can imagine is about to happen and nothing they can do will prevent it; then time seems to change gear and everything slows down.

Do it silently if you don't want to hear the words... [In reply to] Can't Post

However, I admit that the silent, sometimes slo-mo montage of reactions is also overused.
