these aren't all the cars are they? i just saw a commercial for this on another movie and there were a few others - like when he steals the LTD wagon as a kid and driving the Chevelle down the street into the house. i don't own it so i can't do screenshots unless i use the preview.

I still have to watch that movie. I'll do that today then, if some cars are missing.

Edit: done. Indeed some cars were missing. I added these, and completed time-tags of the already listed ones. I kept the Chevrolet Monte Carlo grouped, though they are maybe not all of the same year.

Few trucks:

ahight, I did not see that sequence with the LTD wagon that you described :??: Either it was cut, or not in my version... or I missed it :D About the other sequence, when driving the Chevelle into a house, the Lumina is listed, maybe we could add the other in foreground, but the other ones are too far/small to be listed individually, especially since they are all on the same picture.

As I said there, they do not seem so dark for me :think: And as I have an "old" monitor they usually look darker on my monitor than on modern TFT screens...

Well they appear dark on both of my computer screens at my house. (one LCD, and one new, ordinary monitor). They look like they were filmed in a theater. I have the DVD and the picture isn't this dark when i play it on my tv.

As I said, they were not filmed in theater. I do not know why they would be darker (though that I already that problem with another movie), but in this case they do not seem so dark (well, at least those that I added, the older ones are a little darker, e.g. Chevelle, Lexus, Town Car). The Corvette or the Mazda for example is normal for a night scene, unlike the modified one that you submitted. Anyway modifying pictures just to change luminosity looses to much detail, such things have to be done before jpeg encoding. If you have the DVD you could make better captures, no? Or didn't you solved the problem for playing it in the PC?

When I get back from my trip I'll check out the preview and can take shots from that and list them like we did for others as maybe deleted scenes. The one showed him as a kid driving his parent's late 70's LTD wagon. Also in the scene with the Chevelle, I thought it showed the scene with the Lumina and the others closer up. Thanks for checking!!! :)

I would make captures but I still haven't gotten my computer to play the dvd. Sorry.

Where any French or Belgian members slightly insulted by Sacha Baron Cohen's French character or did they take it with good humour? His accent was really terrible but maybe it was meant to be a parody of the movie convention of a non-French actor playing a Frenchman (like Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau or the Frenchmen in Monty Python and the Holy Grail) rather than a realistic French accent? I think he was there to spoof the American perception of a Frenchman (the USA and France aren't on good terms on the moment), like Borat is a spoof of the Western perception of an Eastern European. I remember someone saying that Hollywood movies used to be full of English villains (usually played by Englishmen like Alan Rickman, Jeremy Irons, Charles Dance and Jason Isaacs) now it's the French who are the villains.

Sacha Baron-Cohen don't look like French or Belgian and his accent has nothing to do with our accent.
He is typical English and his family-name is also typical ("Cohen").

As Belgian and Walloon, When I speak English, it's close to French speaking canadians from Quebec who speaks English.

Did you need to quote my entire message? I once knew someone from Luxembourg and he said his accent was different to the French accent, which he said was lower-toned and more mumbling, his accent was a bit crisper in fact it was a bit like a German accent. Although he was openly gay and often spoke in a rather "camp" manner so he might have sounded slightly different to the average Luxembourger.

Anyway I realise Cohen wasn't speaking a proper French accent, it was a silly comic accent, did this irritate anyone?

Usually people in Belgium make fun of people in France and vice-versa, so I doubt that Belgians would feel insulted by something that makes a joke about French people :whistle:

Yvon, there are Cohens just about everywhere (outside of Islamic countries, I suppose). It's a good old Jewish name, from the Hebrew 'kohen' meaning priest. (Similarly Kahn, Coen, Kagen.)

It's not a typically English name (like Smith or something), it's a Jewish name. And there aren't many Englishmen called "Sacha". Sacha Baron Cohen is English, but he's an English Jew, which is a minority, most English people are Christians.

I love it when people answer a question with another question. Ireland is a complete seperate island (also called Éire, Ireland is the English name for it) and they actually have their own language. though I don't think that many people speak it anymore

It was to give you an absurd example :p I could have said Scotland and England but you would have said me that these were two regions of a country.
There are some cultural differences I guess. Actually there are probably quite less difference between Belgians and French for the north departments than if you compare with those of the south ;)
Note that in Belgium only 40% of the people are native French speakers.

Wikipedia says that the northern French and Belgian dialects are pretty much the same.

Depends what you mean by "dialect". If it is about French language, it is not really a dialect. But as I said north of France is quite close. But rest of France is less.

@G-MANN: The Irish Government is working hard with the schools to revive the language, which never quite died out in the Gaeltacht - the western counties. Notices, signposts etc. have been bilingual for fifty years to my knowledge - except for a public convenience I once encountered in Wexford, where I had to wait crossing my legs until I saw who came out of where, as it was only marked in Irish.
@Antoine: would I be right in saying that French-speaking Belgians (as I assume by your name you are) have more in common with northern Frenchmen than with les flamands?
@Yvon52: when I've tried to speak French in France I've been accused of having a Belgian accent ... :whistle:

That's very gentlemanly of you. I would have just looked inside to check which was which, the ladies one would have been the really clean one without urine on the floor. :D This is why many toilet doors use symbols, although the typical "Ladies" symbol might not work in Scotland :D

For language yes, but for culture not especially. I do not know for those in Wallonia, but do not forget that Brussels is enclaved within Flanders ;)

@G-MANN: Remember, this was Ireland in 1955, not London - or Southampton, or for that matter the Black Country - today. They probably even had attendants ... like we used to. BTW 'FIR' + 'MNA' - would you have guessed right?

Is that what it said on the doors? Let me guess, "FIR" means the ladies' and "MNA" means the gentlemen's? I wouldn't know what toilets were like in 1955 (the year my parents were born!) but today (and at least as long as I can remember, although that only dates back to the late 80s) nearly all public toilets (as opposed to toilets in pubs and restaurants) are appalling, it's like no one ever checks or cleans them.
