    Re: "Saving Mr. Banks" and its most Epic FAIL!

    The sunglasses are probably just for between takes.

    For the badges...well...it's one of those things I wouldn't notice if someone didn't point it out to me. If nothing else, it's going to give people something to add to the "Goofs" section at the film's IMDB entry, and something to look for in the film.

    Re: "Saving Mr. Banks" and its most Epic FAIL!

    Here is my two cents: You will notice things that are not right in this movie. When your obsession is Disney and you know the history front and back, you will notices errors. It's like the movies about history, or say since I work in an airplane I noticed things in Flight that would probably never happen or aren't correct. Does that take away, maybe a bit for me. Will it for the 99.9% of the other people watching the film, most likely not.

    There was enough sarcasm in the OP to level an army. Surprised so few picked up on it. The smiley at the end alone should have given it away.

    A truly beautiful postful of snark Sosai X.

    Re: "Saving Mr. Banks" and its most Epic FAIL!

    Really, what qualifications do you have to judge any of the production design on this film? The decision very well could have been INTENTIONAL. Designers are always bending truth and making design choices like these. Often small details like this are rendered, screen tested, etc, many different ways until they decide what looks best on film and what is the most cohesive look for the overall feel of the piece. There's a million potential reasons they could have been eliminated, their reflective quality, for instance, may have made outdoor shooting too challenging.
    Disney too, takes some creative license with it's details for the sake of creating a cohesive whole... Main Street is not 100% authentic, nor would you find a Polynesian tiki room, and congo cruise in the same jungle.... but it works. That's what's important.

    Sarcasm and the internet (more specificaly, the typed word) dont usually get a long too well.

    And the fact that this is Mice Chat, this could have been a completly serious post
    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

    Yeah, but posts that are actually angry rarely end with a giant smiley face. Just saying.

    If you didn't pick up on the sarcasm, THAT was an epic fail.

    I doubt the average moviegoer will actually give a damn. The only people that will care will be us, who actually know what the place looked like in the 50s.

    I know that they won't get everything. That's usually a given.

    I'm sure Disneyland plays a very small part in the film anyway. They would have filmed more than a couple days otherwise. Stuff like that can end up on the cutting room floor before it's done.

    I'm guessing that they aren't filming very much just because of that. Disneyland has changed too much to make many parts usable in the movie. To me, the plastic name tags are close enough.

    Again. Sarcasm. Good God.

    In the draft of the screenplay I read, the Disneyland sequence ran less than two pages, and took place mostly on the Carousel. These badges might not even be visible at all in the final edit.
