Jet Li - Lethal Weapon 4 (1998 Crowd Reaction Audio)
This is the original audio of the 1998 opening weekend audience of Lethal Weapon 4 dubbed over a cleaner presentation of the film. This was probably the most fun I’ve ever had in the theater. The crowd was really hype for this movie and were introduced to Jet Li in his first U.S. film. Of all my 30+ years of going to the theater I’ve never heard such a reaction and applause for an action scene. The poor audio really doesn’t do the crowd justice.
I must disagree with your characterization (character assassination?) of squares as “philistines, dullards and middlebrows.” Many of us have active imaginations from years of playing Dungeons and Dragons and other RPGs. We are well-read in the classics, like Asimov, Bradbury, Heinlein, and Burroughs (Edgar Rice, not that degenerate William S.). We tend to be good at math (as you noted), and oftentimes can laugh without spewing ejecta. We excel in conversations dealing with the minutia of our interests, be they literary, sociological, or sartorial. In additions to careers in actuarial sciences, we can often be found in the high-tech realm.
Now pass the Cheetos and roll the dice, please–it’s your turn.
