    On the podcast Harmontown Dana Carvey said that he felt like for all these years he thought he ruined Wayne’s World 2 because he wasn’t funny enough. They told him that’s not true people loved it, it’s sad that he felt that way because it is a very funny movie and he didn’t ruin it at all. Sometimes you can get an idea stuck in your head and don’t talk about it to anyone it’ll just grow and grow but you may believe it’s true but it’s not.

    Mike Myers sounds like he was Hollywood's very own Paul Stanley. Always trying to diminish everyone else around him and trying to take all the credit for himself. I'm the genius, i'm the guy, everyone else was just working for me but make no mistake, i'm the master mind.

    Easily the most talented and underrated member of that cast.
    Fantastic entertainer. Carvey's always been my idol.

      Underrated? He gets his due, and SNL helped produce a few movies for him to star in. His biggest success being Opportunity Knocks, which wasn’t a huge hit, nor critically praised.
      I’m biased because I grew up with him in the main cast, and my group of friends repeated all of his stuff on Mondays at school.

    Even though i believe a lot of what Carvey says you still need both creative sides. Myers may have had a good idea about what wouldn't work in WW and should be taken out. Ultimately it was a great film. Without Myers' push back you could have ended up with the Master of Disguise.

    That's how you make movies and characters too... You have actors and other people who you let create fleshed out characters, with some sort of background or story line. - People need to stop just writing "And then our main hero does a pose and says a cool line.". A character becomes interesting because of where they came from and what they stand for, no matter if it's a grand statement or a more charming goofy character.

    Carvey is one of the best SNL ever had. It’s not a stretch to say perhaps THE best. I feel he has never received the fan fair or hype that many less talented from that show have received. I mean come on Bill Murray? Please. He’s the same act, same character in every single thing he does. Same with Sandler. Carvey is leagues above those guys.

    • Nick Stadler
      Nick Stadler Month ago +2

      Video Toaster was one of the earliest CGI tools commercially available, and they used it to create a lot of station identification bumpers, local news graphics and commercials throughout the late 80s and early-to-mid 90s. Lots of green screen stuff, fades, wipes, basic graphics, etc.
      It's total cheese by today's standards, but it was fairly revolutionary at the time.
