Need suggestions/help finding movies with the name 'John' spoken alot!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I know how ridiculous this title sounds, but I'm an editor by trade, and on the side I recut and rejigger movies. Right now I'm turning '16 Blocks' into the 'Rocky Balboa' of the Die Hard series.

I'm doing extensive work on replacing audio, and the main thing I need help with now is finding a movie where lots of people say the name 'John' or 'McClane' that I can then steal and put into my cut.

Double points for any suggestions from movies where David Morse says the name 'John' alot.

The definitive answer:  THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE EIGHTH DIMENSION

David Morse is in Green Mile which stars Michael Clark Duncan as John Coffey, so I'm sure he says the name a lot. Otherwise your best bet is probably just finding movies that have a lead named John and there's plenty of those. John Carter, Rambo etc...

I don't remember if he says "John" alot but David Morse stars in Drive Angry alongside Nicolas Cage, whose character is called John Milton.

John Connor. Terminator such and such. A wide variety of voices in those uttering "John."

Yeah, T2 in particular is choked with "JOHN" yells.

John Carter... oh wait that's if you need to edit the word Barsoom into your piece :)

Dark City. Several characters say the name, including Kiefer Sutherland in a raspy, halting, asthmatic voice (which I love).

Dark City! Awesome suggestion!

Midnight Run - DeNiro says. 'John' several times.  As well, check out 'Big Jim McLain' with John Wayne as a communist-hunter in Hawaii.

What an awesome project, keep us posted on it. 16 Blocks is a great Die Hard film.

COMMANDO.  Vernon Wells calls out 'John' quite a bit in the movie in that crazy cool Aussie accent of his.

"You're getting old, John"

 

38 is old in the Commando universe.

Pirates of the Caribbean, Titanic, Nightmare Before Christmas, 24, Lost, Three's Company, Last Action Hero, Big Trouble in Little China, Speed, The Shining...errr, oh wait...

 

Hey, Lost does work actually.  I contributed!

Jesus, if you want to turn David Morse into an Aussie, it'd be easy to make 16 BLOCKS into a DIE HARD movie just using bits from COMMANDO

 

'John?  I'll be ready, John.'

'Welcome back, John...so glad you could make it.'

'John?  How's your arm, John?'

'John, stick your head out.  One shot, right between the eyes.  Just for old time's sake.'

'I can kill you, John!!'

'I don't need the gun, John!'

'John, I'm not going to shoot you between the eyes.  I'm going to shoot you between the balls!'

'John, I feel good.  Just like old times.  You're a dead man, John!'

Thanks man! It's turning out to be alot more difficult than I thought. I crack into the 5.1 mix and separate the channels so I can delete the dialogue and keep the background sfx.

And then I can lay in new dialogue, with two scenes so far I've had to get a buddy of mine to rerecord all the lines of different actors talking to Willis using the name 'John McClane' instead of 'Jack Mosley', but thankfully the names are so close phonetically the lips line up.

It's a fuckton of audio work and it's gonna take a while, but I really appreciate all the suggestions here everyone!

Can anyone think of any movies where they say the name 'McClane' alot? Other than the other die hards?

Again, not sure if the name is said alot, but in both Manhunter and Red Dragon you have the character Reba McClane, and Bob McClane in Total Recall.

A large chunk of the movie is spent screaming out "Malkovich".  There may be some John's, but it's not the name of emphasis...
