THE WHEEL FROM MAD MAX BEYOND THUNDERDOME

wheel-from-mad-max-beyond-thunderdome"But ain't it the truth: you take your chances with the law. Justice is only a roll of the dice. A flip of the coin. A turn of the Wheel."


In Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985), post-apocalyptic wanderer Max (Mel Gibson) breaks his deal with Aunty Entity (Tina Turner) when he refuses to kill his opponent in the Thunderdome arena. In Bartertown, breaking a deal is one of the most serious crimes imaginable, and the punishment is clear – bust a deal, face the wheel.

Amputation • Life imprisonment • Auntie’s choice • Gulag* • Acquittal •
Hard labour • Spin again • Forfeit goods • Death • Underworld**

*Exile into the desert wasteland.
**Forced labour in Bartertown’s underground methane refinery and pig farm.

THE ORIGIN OF HAL 9000

HAL 9000 (voiced by Douglas Rain) is the spaceship Discovery’s onboard computer in 2001: A Space Odyssey* (1968); he became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois, on the 12th of January, 1992. Contrary to popular belief, HAL’s name is not a play on computer manufacturer IBM (shifted one letter to the left), but is short for "Heuristically-programmed ALgorithmic computer", as Arthur C. Clarke makes clear in his novelisation of the film's screenplay (which he co-wrote with director Stanley Kubrick).

"I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that."


*Rock Hudson is said to have walked out of the Los Angeles premiere of 2001, and remarked: “Will someone tell me what the hell this is about?”

WELCOME!

Welcome to You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Blog, the imaginatively named companion blog to London’s best and longest-running film quiz You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat!

It’s a place for us to share each month’s film quiz rounds (soundtracks, trailers, picture rounds) so that those of you outside London can play at home, as well as our specially created video montages (or 'supercuts' as the kids are calling them these days). We also hope that the Bigger Blog will become an online repository of all the interesting (and otherwise useless) movie trivia we’ve compiled during more than ten years of writing questions to test London’s most formidable film nerds (some of this has previously been published online at our old blog the Movie Miscellany, and we'll be gradually moving this information across, updating and expanding these old posts where possible).

Once all our May quiz nights are done, at the end of this month, we'll upload our soundtracks and trailer video rounds, and the picture round, so you can have a go yourself.

Hope to see you around!
Simon & Lee-Jay
