Nothing, but nothing is more awesome than this movie! Behold it at the amazing Aero with follow up commentary by the producer. Liberal arts ladies fell another notch in my mind when the first question came from a lady who started her question with "I am getting my PhD in pop culture." Really?!? You can do that? Here I wasted my time with Nuclear Chemistry and Computer Science. Pop culture you say, and a doctorate program at that! Holy shit, that explains what happened to our economy! So, at least she must be knowledgeable about popular culture. So her question is actually a monologue in which she rants that she understands that "they" are making a remake of Flash Gordon and this is terrible, because no one will be able to appreciate the original. We are ruining it for the kids. Why do we have to keep making updates of classics that were already so original and so good? Then the producer explained that Flash Gordon was actually a remake of an early movie, which was a adaptation of an earlier series, which was based on a comic. Suffice it to say, the bad lines and weirdos extended way past the screen that night.
