RIP Michael Turner (the one who originally drew this panel). He died about 2 weeks ago. :( It was originally from Superman Batman #8.

Actually Williams is known for ripping off Stravinsky, especially in his music for star wars.

It is from one of the "man with no name trilogy" directed by sergio leone, and music composed by Ennio Morricone. The trilogy consists of A Fist Full of Dollars (A remake of Kurasawa's Yojimbo), For Few Dollars More, and The Good the Bad and the Ugly. All westerns and more specificly spaghetti westerns. /cue 'The More You Know" jingle.

I am not sure that you are familliar with minimalism as a 20th century genre.

A good effort and I like this type of element on ytmnd, but this sounds too much like the rubbish that Phillip Glass puts together.

It is all about the unatural 'camera angles' and camera movement between crowd and stage. Reminiscent of the early hollywood musical (bugsby berkley choreography etc.) because of its success integrating the viewer inside the film with unatural camera movement. While it doesn't function the same way, it does function as an homage to the genre and the techniques that made it successful. I like the step of taking a ytmnd and applying functional film theory (even if it was unintentional).

I am not impressed. A movie can not portray a comic's style better than the comic. So why try to imitate it? The directors decision to pick immitation over innovation will make this ho-hum cinematography.

Thats horrible.

I am seconding the request for Zoidberg saying "and I'm his friend Jesus."

Upon further research, the guy who did the voice for Doug did: Both Ren and Stimpy, Frye, the professor, Zapp Brannigan, and Zoidburg.
October 24th, 2006
Wow, I never knew that the voice actor that did Doug's voice also does Frye's voice on futurama.

It was funny, but took way way way too long to get to the punch line. There is a ton of non-esential stuff you can edit out of there.

5'd for the potential increase in Edrama this would cause.

This is very close to the worst YTMND i have seen. All of the soap box YTMNDs are pretty bad. But yours was about as dry and boring making some garbage point about how we should all hug eachother. Couldn't you have made this point in a more entertaining or visually stimulating way? A piss poor job of using the medium.

I was a bit purplexed, but as soon as I saw the head shot I remembered who did the shooting in the scene. Nicely done.

And Frylark wins the 'douche of the day' award for liking Glass.

Great YTMND, except Phillip Glass's work is garbage.
September 29th, 2006
I have no clue why, but this ytmnd totally cracks me up.

Decent concept, horrible execution.

I love it, but I wish there was more to it: Bigger salad, more "stuff" in the salad, maybe more going on in the background. All in the same style of course. You have a good eye.
