You could be right. It just doesn't seem likely to me. Seems so naked without that "Avenging" in front. He's not just any old run-of-the-mill Disco Godfather, he's the one and only AVENGING Disco Godfather! Seriously though...any Brits want to chime in on this? What title are you familiar with? FWFR is the first time I've ever seen it without "Avenging".





The only info I can give you on this film is that Xenon Pictures appear to be the sole distributors and they have titled it Disco Godfather, as for the alternative titles there is no sign of them ever appearing on VHS or DVD. Maybe it was retitled for the DVD regardless of country.





It's available on DVD???

Yes it is and not only is it low priced but region free as well. Just in case you're interested I've left you a link to a company who I've found to be well priced and reliable. This link takes you directly to the Disco Godfather page.

Well that settles it...I hereby withdraw my request. But I think they made a mistake marketing it as "Disco Godfather." Just doesn't have the same ring to it.

No doubt about it. That's definitely an intentional gag by benj.

And it's a good one!

Occasionally a really good gag can be set up like that but the joke only works if it doesn't get overused.
I was excited to see one of my series of duplicated Police Academy reviews in the What Film bubble yesterday, "Tackleberry plays with guns" and chuckled happily to myself that it could be any in the series because it was so formulaic.

Fixed, but in the interests of dropping Anons I gave Will the benefit of the doubt.

Battle of the Skeksys for Dark Crystal. Sorry Slippy Tin, Falken got there first.

I saw ST's review, thought 'That's good, but I'm sure I already voted on it, obviously not since I still have a vote option'. So I voting on ST's, then realised the reason I thought I'd voted previously, was that I'd already voted on Falken's. Not so bright, am I.

Poor Slippy. That's probably a month's work down the drain.
