1stly during the filming of that he wanted to film in one of Agent Orange aka Bunker Boy hotels but his rule was if you film at any of his hotels he's gotta have a cameo so he told Trump no he's not getting a cameo hence therefore he didn't use one of his hotels that's a guy i can respect even if he can be a douche.

funny you mention him i listened to his Audio Commentary for Beverly Hills Cop (1984) well the blu-ray anyways it was pretty good, funny thing he apparently is the clerk at the end of the film and he said there's the worst actor in the whole movie and it wasn't a bad performance either it was funny at least he could have a sense of humor on that.

but  a director that was hurt by another film 'Batman & Robin (1997) Joel S.  well that was his biggest flop that's true but he did do successful films after that such as Phantom of the Opera (2004) that was a huge hit i believe so it didn't kill his career. but what's funny on him is i was watching a stream with Kevin Smith awhile ago and apparently Joel S. is a guy who literally slept with thousands of guys no joke they did the mat and he died at 80 i think so Kevin did the math and he said going by age 20 that's 60 years that's i think he said 17,000 different people he's slept with, there's more i left out cause it's been awhile but that's just plain wrong for anyone to get a number that high.

which explains why his filmography isn't bigger than it is lol

Godfather Part III (1990) might be considered an easy target, but even if Winona Ryder had stayed in the movie instead of Sofia Coppola having only 2 weeks to prep for that role as Ryder's replacement, the movie itself still would have been terrible; Sofia Coppola took the brunt of that movie's criticism in 1990 because she was clearly not fit to be given such a prominent role in that movie. It was just all around bad, the acting was just forced and ho-hum at times, the movie was about one hour too long, and I personally thought it was hilarious that Talia Shire was reduced to reprising her Adrian Balboa acting schtick to salvage something out of her role as Connie Corleone, because that was who she reminded me of. Francis Ford Coppola really batted a no-hitter with this one, which is regrettable because this was supposed to be the end to a fantastic trilogy, not leaving you with a bad taste in your mouth.

Another film that I couldn't get behind was John Carpenter's Vampires (1998). Which is funny because I tried to like this movie; all my friends and the edgy movie gurus of the late '90s who lived and breathed every word that puked out of Quentin Tarantino's mouth -- you know the ones that thought that The Doom Generation (1995) was some kind of masterpiece -- would say nothing but good things about Vampires, but as a kid that was raised on The Thing (1982), Halloween (1978), and Christine (1983) among others, I hold John Carpenter to a much higher standard than the hot mess that was Vampires. The movie had a terrible plot, terrible writing for all the really good actors that must have been hard-up for money in the late '90s to have agreed to participate in this hot garbage pile; even the overall premise of biker vampire hunters just seemed like something that John Carpenter dreamed up while drunk and stoned one night. James Woods should have shined in a crap role like this, but he was arguably the worst part of the movie because his character was just so unlikeable and made no sense half the time. It's bad when you find yourself cheering on Thomas Ian Griffith from The Karate Kid Part III (1989) who was supposed to be the bad guy as the head vampire while simultaneously hoping that bad things happened to James Woods' character. This was the movie that ended my interest in anything *new* that was John Carpenter related, which is sad because I thought that Escape From L.A. (1996) was clever and entertaining despite being bad.

Hey, I thought VAMPIRES was really cool! I mean, it's cheesy, but come on, it's a vampires movie, what can you expect? The idea was to mix a western with modern bloodsuckers, and I think it turned out extremely entertaining. The theme song is very catchy also.

Yes, you are correct. The music in the movie was great. I remember renting the movie in 1999 (or maybe it was already on cable TV by then) when I told my buddy afterward, something like "well at least it had a good soundtrack".  Cheers

David Lynch also gave us "Wild at Heart" with Nicholas Cage.

Some fiends lent me their VHS copy.  It took me a month to watch it as I could only stomach 5 minutes at a time.   When I was done, I offered to give their copy back...but they insisted I keep it.

I agree with Bob, North, by Rob Reiner. He was on a roll with a streak of great movies, and then he wiped out and face planted in the gravel with North, and hasn't been that good since.

Someone should get revenge for that pointless remake by remaking Jaws (1975) but with Tom Cruise as Quint, just to rub Spielberg’s nose in it.  TeddyR

A local actor, Kahil Dotay, was in a short poking fun at the making of Jaws.... Called The Courage Of Stupidity I think... Dotay always makes something big, then shelves it because he doesn't want it getting ripped off or something...

As for WOTW, I think Timbo Hines got revenge with his overhyped, ridiculously bad little direct to video opus.......

I figured the movie was going to be about those drug dealers and that ugly mofo was going to be part of it, that would have made it a much better movie if it were to be honest like that. But yes, I was bored out of my mind and I said to myself, "Where's Josh Brolin at some point?" Why isn't he finishing the film? Ok, I came home and looked up at the boards of the IMDB that were still around.

Wow, I 'm missing those and I had to make someone remind me that he was killed and shot where you can't see him get killed at all. But I've been thinking uh oh kay .....

When I told my mom not to rent it when it came out, she ignored me and it didn't take her 2 days to watch my dad sleep on it, but he could sleep on it. But he said it was boring as well as having to pay a late fee for my mom! When a friend of her rented it and also regretted it after she had been told it was bad she also regretted it.  refer Askmoffers.com

It's really bad spamming. Josh Brolin? It's cut and paste. 'Askmeoffers'. Ask me offers?

Not so much a bad movie, but, I think a disappointment from the late, great George Pal, who was partially responsible for two of the greatest science fiction films of the '50s and '60s. 1953's War of the Worlds and 1960s' The Time Machine, but, for me, where he excelled was in his fantasy films, especially 1958's tom thumb and 1964's The 7 Faces of Doctor Lao. The latter has an interesting history, as one of those films that failed at the box office, but is now considered a cult classic. Based upon Charles G. Finney's The Circus of Doctor Lao, which I have not read, but, is supposedly a much darker tale than the film. They wanted Peter Sellers for Doctor Lao, but, he was too expensive, so they got Tony Randall, who actually turned in one of the best performances of his career.

As for the disappointment it is his last film Doc Savage the Man of Bronze with Ron "Tarzan" Ely as the title character and based on the series by Henry W. Ralston. Again a bit of personal history plays into this; for, when I was in grad school my roommate had a whole slew of these. He must have had every one in the series, he was so fond of 'em. As for myself, I never could get into it.
There was a couple of thoughts to so a sequel, first, Doc Savage : the Arch Enemy of Evil, then there was the Doc Savage meets King Kong idea for a film, but, the original never did enough business to justify a sequel.

He only made about a dozen films, and I wish he had made more, as I have seen most of them and liked them all except for his last film.
