    Terry Pratchett's "Lords & Ladies" Feature-Length Film

    Terry Pratchett's "Lords & Ladies" Feature-Length Film
    (title got cut off in topic subject line)

    Fans of Terry Pratchett might enjoy this one. It seems a group of German Pratchett fans have spent the last nine months producing a feature-length adaptation of his novel Lords & Ladies. Total cost: 300 Euros.

    You can see the trailers here:

    I read Lords and Ladies in Dutch, as Edele Heren en Dames, when my partner brought home an ex-review copy from work. I quite enjoyed it. One of these days, I'll get round to the copy of Het Jongste Werelddeel, that's still sitting on the bookshelf. :)

      "Hodgesaargh (David Hodges)"

      He's playing himself!!! Fantastic. I've met Hodges at several conventions over the years, and a conversation with him was pretty much an event in itself... far more fun than some of the official panels.

      Of course, if you don't know who David Hodges is, then that's all meaningless gibberish. :)

      The film looks pretty good, and I'd be much happier watching that than the third LotR film, which I still can't be bothered to rent... I don't know, or care how that trilogy ends. Perhaps I'm wrong, but a more "guerrilla" style of film-making might help to retain some of the humour of the Discworld. Although Mr Pratchett's creation deserves the big budget treatment, there's a certain endearingly "low-budget" quality to many of his characters... I mean, Rincewind isn't exactly the Ferrari of wizards, but he gets the job done.

        I'd quite like to see Keanu Reeves, as Mightily Oats, being taught to sing, The Wizard's Staff Has A Knob On The End, by Susan Sarandon, as Nanny Ogg, in a big screen treatment of Carpe Jugulum (1998). :D

          HAHA is that Cohen the Barbarian on the middle to the left side of the page?
          It has always been the prerogative of children and half-wits to point out that the emperor has no clothes. But the half-wit remains a half-wit, and the emperor remains an emperor.
