  1. In "I, Tonya", right before that scene when Tonya skates on a ZZtop song, while the skater before Tonya is finishing, they used the Albertville look by mistake.
  2. Here you have the CBS coverage of the Albertville 1992 opening ceremony. It's in several parts, and begins way before the actual opening ceremony (which was kind of interesting)
  3. Of course, yes. So films have to pay a lot of money to the IOC if they want to use the official logos and stuff. Cause in "Eddie the Eagle", the logo and branding and everything seemed very accurate. I guess it depends on the film's budget.
  4. And here's a comparison video between the actual video and how it's portrayed in the movie. Indeed, it's quite alright but, they couldn't get the official logo right, or even the "look of the games" right.
  5. I have this feeling too. With 3 consecutive Games in Asia, then Paris, then 3 consecutive Games in North America, Paris will feel like quite a breathe of fresh air
  6. Hi JO, (giggles).



  7. Hello :) I'm trying to pm you again but it says you can't receive messages. I don't know why. Anyway I only wanted to ask whether you'd like to enter the Olympic logo comp that's on now & closes for submission on Wednesday. Sorry about the short notice but I tried to pm you last week & it wouldn't let me & I didn't know I could do this. Sorry, & thank you :)

      I should've added - if you are interested, my inbox has free space so you can PM me. 

  8. I love the opening ceremony from Albertville 1992. It's so unique, so different from what was done before (and after). It was the first opening ceremony I watched, I was 5, and I still remember how amazed I was. But I know for sure the opening for the 2024 games will be very different. I just hope it won't be too generic or cliché like what they gave us for the opening of the 2016 euro cup.
  9. I was thinking the exact same thing. So Paris 2024 is accused of giving ultimatums when they say they can only bid for 2024, but then when LA 2024 say they won't be bidding again that's not an ultimatum? Tsssssss...

  11. Ok. So just because Gamesbids isn't talking about it, the Paris 2024 bid report was really really good. There you go. No surprises here, but since there was a whole article about it from Gamesbids, I thought I should balance it up a bit. My sources are from a French website, so I thought it wouldn't interest you. But just in case, here you go: http://sport24.lefigaro.fr/jeux-olympiques/jo-2024/actualites/paris-2024-encense-par-la-commission-d-evaluation-du-cio-867055
  12. What's crappy is this comment. Dang. We all thought you were gone for good after you realized LA would not get 2024 but 2028 instead. You just cannot help it. Whatever comes from Paris 2024 is crap, isn't it? You twat.
  13. Interestingly, last time the IOC awarded the Games to 2 cities during the same session (june 1921) was for the 1924 and the 1928 Games. And Paris got 1924.
  14. If LA gets the 2024 Games and Paris is offered 2028, I really hope Paris is going to tell the IOC to go **** themselves.
