Emilio Estevez asked for and received $4 million to star in the film. He was able to get a much larger payday than anyone expected because he was available at a point where the film needed to either go into production or have the plug pulled, and they had spent more than twice that $4 million figure on pre-production which would have been lost if he hadn't taken the lead role. - Trivia Kerrr-ching 8-)

Trailer Park Shark
(2017)

A typical scheming bad guy floods the Soggy Meadows Trailer Park by blowing up a protective dike, and wouldn't you know it, a ridiculous looking electrified shark swims in and boy is it hungry. There is a bit of time spent at the outset setting up the trashy residents and their oddball relationships with each other, but much of that goes to waste as people quickly become chum and realize they have to sink or swim together. I give the filmmakers credit for at least trying to write characters and give them motivations, a relative rarity in cheesy monster shark movies. The plot is actually quite complicated and involves a wind turbine, electricity theft, turnip farming (really), and even a brief mention of global warming

Two low-level government employees, Emmitt Fitz-Hume (played by Chevy Chase) and Austin Milbarge (Dan Aykroyd), are chosen for a top-secret CIA mission. They are unsuitable as CIA agents but are deliberately chosen for this reason, as their mission is a decoy one and they are expendable. After being fast-tracked through training they are parachuted into Pakistan where all manner of adventures await them.

The film originally ended with the destruction of the world, but test audiences didn't like it, so a new, happier ending was shot on a soundstage in Burbank. - Trivia :shock:


This...was not good. Neither was the ending theme song by Paul McCartney :shock: .

I ended up with Suck in one of those going out of business DVD sales...I think I'll need to see this before October now.

The best thing about Judgment Night was Denis Leary as the heavy. It serves to whet the appetite for his turn in The Ref a year later.

White Nights wasn't even that good back in the day. I can't imagine it would have aged very well.

Back to the Beach was part loving parody of the Frankie and Annette beach movies of the late 1950s-mid 1960s, part callback to the more innocent days of the period.

This movie is made-up of three tales, the first one is, "Young Blood" it is about a married pair of vampires who adopt a child and are horrified to discover that it is another kind of monster all together. In "The Guardians," a pair of avaricious grave robbers make a terrible mistake when they visit the St. Francis Abbey cemetery to do a little pillaging. The final episode, "Visions of Sugar-Plum" is set at Christmas time and is set at the home of an outwardly loving grandmother whose smile conceals the heart of a cold-blooded killer.

Overlord
(2018)

On the eve of D-Day, the 5th of June, 1944, several American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion's success: destroy a radio tower built in a little castle of an old French town that the Third Reich uses for communication between Berlin and Normandy beaches' bunkers. Due to the intense enemy fire, the planes are shot down and most soldiers die in the landing or are killed by the Nazis' night patrols after they land. However, a private named Ed Boyce survives to find Corporal Ford, a last-minute incorporation from Italy and a veteran expert in bombs and explosives, rogue sniper Tibbet, war photographer Chase, and finally private Dawson. After they watch the killing of their superior Sargeant Eldson by a Nazi night patrol, Ford becomes leader of the group and they try to get the town with the tower in order to complete the mission.

I'm always surprised when people outside of Belgium actually care about Matthias Schoenaerts.
Funny enough, they tried to sell this movie as some kind of romantic drama, as they do with all Schoenaerts films, but people who've actually seen it told me the movie mostly exist out of him and some other guys in a submarine. Not a lot of romance in sight.

The tongue scene is truly traumatizing, not because of the gore but the sheer evilness of it all :(

Betsy's Wedding
(1990)

Doting dad Eddie Hopper (Alan Alda) is willing to spend every penny to his name to make certain that his daughter Betsy (Molly Ringwald) will have the perfect wedding. Betsy would prefer a small, intimate ceremony-and so would Eddie's wife Lola (Madeline Kahn), who suffers from visions of the Poorhouse dancing in her head. When his bank account is depleted, Eddie turns to his slightly crooked brother-in-law (Joe Pesci), and Pesci's crooked cohort (Burt Young). Salvation comes from a most unlikely corner in this labyrinthine domestic farce.

I think the biggest thing against Diary of a Mad Black Woman is the overdose of melodrama...or Madea acting like she's an expert on everything when her own life is messy. :P

I think the franchise peak is Madea Goes to Jail with a compelling back story and that one lady from Modern Family. Beware of all the cameos, though.

Betsy's Wedding was the first time I noticed a character quirk: you never hear LaPaglia's character use a contraction. Not even once. ;)

The Mule
(2018)

Clint Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he's just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. He does well, so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler. But he isn't the only one keeping tabs on Earl; the mysterious new drug mule has also hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl's past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it's uncertain if he'll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel's enforcers, catch up to him."

Robert Downey, Jr. has said of this movie "I thought The Pickup Artist (1987) would give me a chance to have a real career, and it didn't turn out that way, The press kept asking me about legal and moral issues. I'm like, 'Come on, man, I just hope it does well at the box-office.' Of course it's a sexually irresponsible film, but if AIDS had happened six months later, maybe the film would have made more than six bucks. - Trivia :P
