    I believe he spends a good deal of the commentary track of the dvd apologizing as well.

    For reference, Tim Burton also goes into detail about complaints he received on the commentaries for his Batman movies, and either explains his intent or apologizes. Apparently he got a ton of complaints because Alfred let Vicki Vale into the Batcave and I guess there were fans that felt that shouldn't happen? He also explained the "Batman shoves a bomb down a guy's pants" scene and said that he intended it to be a Looney Tunes moment (and you only see smoke and confetti from the explosion) and he regretted not including a shot of the aftermath where the clown is covered in soot like Elmer Fudd and then passes out.

    Is cuing up a boombox to play the song just too much expense to bother with or something? Or is this just in situations where they know they're going to use music but they haven't decided which song yet by the time of filming?

    Any time anyone shits on Batman and Robin in favor of a more "brooding" Batman movie my eyes just roll right out of my skull.

    Both versions of Batman are valid.

    If you look at Batman and the Robin in the same vein as Batman 66 it's pretty much brilliant in my book.

    Professional dancers do not need music to stay on the beat.

    Also, they practice a bunch.

    Well, if they're professionals, then they'll be okay with it and not feel any particular embarrassment over dancing to silence and no chipmunks actually being on-set.



    That said, piping in audio happens occasionally in other behind-the-scenes videos I've seen where dancing is involved, so maybe it's on a case-by-case basis.

    The best part of that shitty Kickboxer sequel Tube mentioned?

    During the credits they have Jai Courtney in a split screen dance-off with footage of young JCVD in the original.

    I think it's Scott Adkins?

    The film also has the line "Tong Po! I challenge you to a fight!" and it's precisely as bad as whatever the worst line reading for that you can imagine is.

    How does it rank against the current champ?

    That's all well and good for scenes full of professional dancers, but when it's a bunch of actors and some extras?

    Is there some reason I don't know about that makes it bad to have music on set?

  • TubeTube Administrator, ClubPA admin
    For professional dancers they'll have the lead choreographer screaming 1-2-3-4 at them to keep time. If it's a bunch of extras and they're just supposed to be sort of background dancing at a club, it depends. Generally you'd ADR that dialogue anyway so they could have music on set. Generally it's just not that important that extras are dancing in time.

    I know, from It's Always Sunny, that if they're doing a scene in a dance club with any dialogue being spoken there will be no music played on set.

    Yeah, if the dancing isn't important and they want to leave the real dialogue in there's no real reason to not have people just bopping along.

    One of my favorite parts of that movie is when Commissioner Gordon is talking to Batman about Poison Ivy and Bane going into hiding somewhere in South America, and says something like "Here's their last known photograph." He then hands Batman this picture:

    I cannot overstate how much I love everything about that picture.

    Eh, I dunno. Having seen both Batman and Robin as well as Batman '66, I still find the old movie more enjoyable.

    If you pay too much attention to dance scenes it becomes obvious a lot of the time that everyone has a completely different beat happening in their head.

    This generally doesn't apply to movies about dance, where they tend to go to a lot more effort. Sitcoms are usually dire*, though.

    Why do they bother giving the chipmunk a skirt if her entire ass isn't going to be covered by the skirt at all?

    This sounds like George Lucas level of bullshit. Was the guy the bat mobile set on fire supposed to disappear in a cloud of smoke to be replaced by a cooked chicken leg?

    Usually on sets they'll have a choreographer on set to keep everyone in time, plus musical numbers often have a good number of takes and cuts, so it's something that's done in small bits, then edited together

    I didn't realize the Big Kareoke Dance Party Ending was such a thing until i read some article complaining about it...and now i realize every dreamworks movie ends this way! And then that Sing movie was literally a feature length big kareoke dance party ending. Why do children's movies have to be so bad when the tv shows seem to be getting better and better
