20th Century Fox fanfare

Ice Age was on earlier this evening. Evie loves this film (although she did cry at the end) and she's probably watched it several million times over the last few years. As films my daughter has subjected me, it's one of the more bearable.

However, there's one thing that worries me. A few times, when she's heard the 20th Century Fox fanfare at the start of other films, she's muttered something about Ice Age. The two are clearly connected in her mind! This is all wrong!

Whenever I hear the 20th Century Fox fanfare, I expect the screen to darken partway through, and the words "Lucasfilm Ltd" to appear. It then ends, and during the silence that follows the words "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away..." appear (in blue). Then *BANG* John Williams Star Wars theme kicks in, and "STAR WARS" appears in yellow and zooms away.

All other uses are a pale comparison.

Exactly! And then a rebel spaceship flies over the top, followed closely by an enormous Imperial Star Destroyer. Nothing else seems quite right, somehow.

My standard test for any new television is to watch the opening of A New Hope with the volume very high, to see how the sound system copes with the Star Destroyer going overhead. It's nice if the windows rattle...

Yup. This was programmed into me at age 5, and will forever be true.

Your daughter is a douche-bag.
