Movie stuff you only just realised... - Page 138

post #6851 of 6891

I'm assuming this is probably common knowledge to some, but was watching Halloween 2 about a week ago and noticed familiar a name in the credits and was like "he's in this? really?", and well....it was a surprise to me!

It was a song I stumbled upon a few years ago. I was also greatly amused Lalo created a funk bomb with this cover. The rest of the album has random funk/disco tunes, which is also amusing to me.

 

On a similar note, there's Walter Murphy (the guy who did the 5th of Beethoven disco song) and his version of the tune:

The scene in The Lost Boys where David sheds a tear after the sunlight burns his hand wasn't planned. The tear was a result of the contacts Kiefer was wearing. It looked cool so it stayed in the movie.

I watched Rosemary's Baby for the first time in a while. A young Charles Grodin has a small role in it as Dr. Hill, and right before his first scene, they're playing "Für Elise" by none other than ... Beethoven! Grodin and Beethoven in the same movie, mere seconds apart, long before the movie with the St. Bernard. Weird coincidence.

post #6855 of 6891

In retrospect this seems incredibly obvious, but I saw someone tweet about this and it simply never crossed my mind to make the connection.

 

 

Although, now that I think about it, I've seen the original poster/cover art before, but the cover that I always saw in the video store was this one, or at least this is the one I remember.

Movie Stuff I Just Realized:  The Breakfast Club had a dumb as shit tagline.  But it kind of fits the half-clever, faux-profundity of the movie perfectly.

post #6857 of 6891
Wow, only took me 30 years to realize that the singing telegram girl in Clue was played by Go-Go's guitarist/top 5 childhood crush Jane Wiedlin.
post #6858 of 6891

Inspired by recent thread activity for a rewatch.

 

In Master and Commander: Far Side of the World, when rounding the Cape of Good Hope when Aubrey commands the Surprise to go south "as far as necessary", the next scene is a sweeping shot of the ship plowing through snowfall.

 

There is a guy on the prow of the ship taking a shit into the ocean.

Ladyhawk would be a pretty damn good movie if Matthew Broderick weren't in it..
post #6861 of 6891
And if it had a classical score.
post #6862 of 6891

Slim beat me by mere seconds.

post #6863 of 6891

Broderick's fine. It's that fucking score. The other thing, which feels minor but grates the entire film, is how NEW and CLEAN all the clothing, arms, and armor are. Nothing looks lived in or like something that was made/worn in a quasi-medieval world.

post #6864 of 6891
I kinda like Ladyhawk's weird music. But it does clash terribly with the movie it's in. That movie needed some old school Jerry Goldsmith..
post #6865 of 6891

This dismissial of Alan Parsons and Andrew Powell is maddening! THE ALAN PARSONS PROJECT rules with a strong synth had, dammit!  Show some respect! 

They are the Eye in the Sky!  Looking at you-ou-ouuuuu!

 

 

 

(They can read your mind.)

post #6866 of 6891

Just change the title cue. It always sounds like Meet Your Six O'clock News Team to me.

post #6867 of 6891

If, say, Poledouris had scored it (or Goldsmith), the film would be improved 100%. The synth score makes you think it's trying to be a medieval version of Risky Business.

 

It dates the movie horribly, too.

Roberts Blossom (Old Man Marley in Home Alone) played the Ed Gein-esque killer in Deranged.

He's also in Christine. I don't know how I blanked on that for so many....decades.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (which was released the same year) is obviously the better, infinitely more classic film but I swear to god, Deranged disturbs me more. That is one fucked up movie..

Yeah, I definitely recognized him as George LeBay but the fact he starred in Deranged blindsided me. Jesus, that film's disturbing. 

post #6871 of 6891
And it's actually, name changes aside, about as definitive an Ed Gein movie as one could ask for..

Finally figured out how to get a screenshot.  I just think it's a hilarious and probably accurate detail that I never noticed before.

post #6873 of 6891

It's very accurate. That's how you shat on old timey ships. Buckets and holes in the ship don't exactly work. 

 

Whenever you watch a Pirates movie just imagine the entire pretty cast taking a squat off the side-rails.

The Flash could see and hear Bruce Wayne through the time portal in Batman vs Superman, but was too much of a spaz to let Bruce get a word in.

Is the time portal thing even addressed in Justice League?

 

(Haven't seen it and likely won't but I'm curious to know how/ if that absurd plot point pays off).

It does not. Whatever situation the Flash thought he was trying to warn Bruce about, it wasn't Steppenwolf's invasion. There's presumably some other incident in the future where Lois Lane is the key, and Flash's first attempt to get the word to Bruce serendipitously leads to the plot of Dawn of Justice developing the way it did.
post #6877 of 6891
Maybe I'm reading too much into it but....the Flash having facial hair in that scene seemed to be a visual indicator that he was communicating with Bruce from much further into the future than these movies have yet shown us..
post #6878 of 6891

The speculation is that the original idea for the JL films (when it was 2) had Superman coming back as a baddie and henchman for Steppenwolf/Darkseid for a much more extended period, and that Flash was coming back to basically tell Bruce "HE JUST NEEDS TO GET LAAAAAAAID!!!!"

That 'clean' look is one of the major issues that I have with FIRST KNIGHT as well.  There's no grit to anything.

post #6880 of 6891
I just can't stand Matthew Broderick. It shoulda been Michael J. Fox..
post #6881 of 6891

Fox is even more hopelessly modern looking and acting than Broderick.

It's not that aspect that ever bothered me about the film. I just can't stand Broderick..
post #6883 of 6891
Everyone ragging in the Ladyhawke score. I fucking loved it. It set it apart from other fantasy films and is so gloriously ‘80s.
post #6884 of 6891
I really enjoy it during the opening credits..
post #6885 of 6891
After finally watching The Hidden (the 1987 movie) ....and really enjoyed it by the way....it just now occurred to me that Jason Goes to Hell rips it off almost completely. To the point that I'm surprised there wasn't a lawsuit..
post #6886 of 6891
Today my mind exploded when I realised that this:

lol

isn't an abbrevation for expressing amusement, but something else entirely.




It's a TIE fighter.

She's also Ms. Of Arc

I think they were both from New Line Pictures.

Welp, can't unsee that

I’ve always seen a ref calling a field goal “it’s good!”
post #6891 of 6891

Tonight I rewatched Predators (a film I still don't like) and I had no memory of the supporting character Mombasa being played by Mahershala Ali. I am glad he went on to better things, including a role that won him an Oscar this year.
