Creamguide(Films) Commentaries: Watership Down

Watershipdown

Grab your giant carrot and take to the TISWAS stage as Chris, Craig, Jack and the Easter bonnet herself Rose sit trembling at the sheer unadulterated horror that is the rabbit version of Passchendaele: WATERSHIP DOWN from 1978. Thrill to the sounds of the Barry Manilow beat as the bunnies rip each other to pieces. And a Happy Easter!

    Happy Easter to you too.

    I look forward to When The Wind Blows for the Summer Bank Holiday.

    There was a Watership Down series, I’m sure it was a reboot on CITV. Hurt played Woundwort (Harry Andrews was the General, Sir Rich Ralphardson was the Chief Rabbit) and Briers played Captain.
    Captain Holly is played by John “Li H’sen Chang” Bennett, ironic as one of the titular Plague Dogs is his Weng-Chiang costar Christopher “Henry Gordon Jago” Benjamin.

    It’s a crazy world – BBFC ratings in those days. I remember seeing The Elephant Man on telly and being disturbed by it, only to see it in Carville And Arcari* on VHS as a PG.

    They never considered genuine disturbance worth bothering about.

    *the one in Vicky Road, next door to the Anarkali.

    Haha, amazed at the mention of Carvill & Arcari, didn’t realise there was more than one of them. (Local was somewhere on Paisley Road West, beside either Quo Vadis or near the Argosy.)

    It is proper adult animation, not the “adult” stuff of Brittney Q Hill of Kartoon Management’s webseries by Lionel Richardson. Hill is a friend of my friend Dawna Heising’s friend Aaron King. Lionel also worked on Cartoon Hookups with PLayboy’s Raquel Pomplun, and have been criticised on fb by a religious nut called Clay M Malia Miller, not the nFL guy or the star of History’s History Quest and the Last Sentinel.

    The Animals of Farthing WOod was early 90s. I preferred Noah’s Island, it’s followup with Ron Moody as a polar bear.
    Another thing that is kiddified a lot is Peter Pan. One of the more adult adaptations of Peter Pan is the webseries the new adventures of Peter and Wendy as seen on tubefiltertv which only gets minus points like several Canadian series for using the phrase boom goes the dynamite http://www.imdb.com/find?q=boom%20goes%20the%20dynamite&s=tt&ref_=fn_tt_pop like CBS’ Tosh.0, andthe work of AJ Bitner and Pablo Gunner who know cosplayer Dennis Cox, a friend of Bob Mitsch – who knows Andrew Cartmel. It’s a small world.
