Trivia for 4-28-09 is from High Fidelity.

The closing track "I Believe" was originally performed by Stevie Wonder and was later covered by Art Garfunkel and Peter Frampton. All three are artists that Rob, Dick, and Barry make fun of in the movie.

Nope, maybe they might have had to blame her parents? What a concept!

Surely it wasn't the parents?!?!?! I mean sure the father got her the gun (as a Christmas present mind you) and he allegedly sexually molested her.. But i mean think of the facts.. video games and music are they way to go. Rolling Eyes

Yeah I bet she had a very early precursor to Pong in the house and was listening to The Bee Gees Greatest Hits...

Rolling Eyes

The other problem I had was the whole 16 year old "Drunk and on PCP" reason as if that excused her. I have done lots of drugs in lots of combinations, played violent video games my whole life, listening to the most caustic metal imaginable and I am an atheist so I have no invisible man in the sky watching me do bad things. I also generally don't like people and think most of them could disappear and the world would go on, probably much better than before.

BUT I have never shot 8 children. None of the excuses she nor anyone ever give are the real reason. The reason is because you are fucking crazy and you are missing this basic human element in your noggin that tells you that killing 8 children to "liven up your monday" might not be the best advice you ever gave yourself.

Some people are just not correctly manufactured and need to be recalled for disposal.

Trivia Of The Day (4/28/2009)

Superman

Steven Spielberg was offered the chance to direct this film, but the producers balked at the salary he asked for. They decided to wait until they saw how "this fish movie" (Jaws (1975)) that he had just completed did at the box office. The movie was a huge success, and Spielberg went on to other projects.

Numerous actors were considered for the part of Superman/Clark Kent: Warren Beatty, James Caan, Kris Kristofferson, Nick Nolte, Robert Redford, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jon Voight, with the front-runners being Nolte and Voight after the role was turned down by Beatty and Redford. Among the unknowns tested for the role were Ilya Salkind's wife's dentist (footage of the dentist testing for the part of Superman can, in fact, be seen in the supplemental section of the DVD). Eventually, the Salkinds cast an almost unknown actor they kept coming back to from earlier in their search - Christopher Reeve (who had only one other film and a television soap opera to his credit).

Marlon Brando refused to memorize most of his lines in advance. In the scene where he puts infant Kal-El into the escape pod, he was actually reading his lines from the diaper of the baby.

Robert Redford, Clint Eastwood and James Caan were all offered the movie's title role. All three turned it down: Redford wanted too much money; Eastwood said he was too busy; Caan said, "There's no way I'm getting into that silly suit."

Initially, Gene Hackman refused to cut off his mustache to play Lex Luthor. In early one-sheets of the movie his face is featured with a mustache. Before Richard Donner and Hackman met face-to-face, Donner proposed to Hackman that if he would cut his mustache, Donner would cut his too, and Hackman agreed. It turned out later that Donner did not have a mustache at all. He wore a false moustache that he peeled off at the last moment.

Trivia of the day for 'The Spy Who Came In From The Cold':

"When Richard Burton became a superstar, he insisted on casting his friends from his days at the Old Vic and West End (London's equivalent of Broadway). That is why Claire Bloom, who is clearly too old to be a teenager, was cast as Nan Perry. Other friends of Burton's cast in the film included the great stage actor Sir Michael Hordern and Robert Hardy."

Trivia Of The Day (4/29/2009)

Superman II

US-born Director Richard Lester , an American expatriate living in England, claimed he had never heard of the Superman character before being hired to replace original director Richard Donner for the sequel as comic books had not been allowed in his house when he was child. Many critics believe that Lester's lack of understanding of the character of Superman bordered on disrespect, which was most apparent in the next sequel, Superman III (1983), which he directed entirely on his own.

In an early version of the script, there were four Kryptonian exile villains instead of three. The fourth member, Jak-El, was supposed to be an evil prankster and source of comic relief (a similar character to Riddler in the Batman series). In an early script, he is described as 'A psychopathic jokester, whose pranks and "practical jokes" are only funny to him when they cause death and suffering to others, this is JAK-EL.' The character was later dropped and never cast.

Trivia for 4-29-09 is from Duck Soup. Good old Groucho...

Shortly before this film premiered, the city of Fredonia, New York, complained about the use of its name with an additional "e". The Marx Brothers' response was, "Change the name of your town, it's hurting our picture."

Italian dictator Benito Mussolini banned the film from Italy because he thought it was a direct attack on him. When news of this reached The Marx Brothers, they were reportedly ecstatic.

Trivia for the Day, "Hellbound: HellRaiser 2":

(I was tempted to delay on this one since the thread is supposed to be random trivia and I used Hellraiser 3 last week, but I like the snippet I found so will go ahead anyway)

"The horn sound that is continually made by Leviathan is Morse code for "God"."

That's actually really cool to consider if you think about the movie and the story arc for Pinhead.

Trivia Of The Day (4/30/2009)

Superman III

The program Gus creates in the beginning that supposedly impossible is just a series of PRINT statements when Gus lists it.

The original title was to be "Superman vs. Superman". The producers of Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) threatened a lawsuit over the similarity however, and refused to believe the Salkinds' explanation that it was intended as a play on the various "Superman vs..." comic stories and not Kramer vs. Kramer. Eventually Pierre Spengler suggested that "Superman III" would be a more sensible title anyway, and the issue was dropped.

Trivia for the day from 'Night Key' (1937):

"The movie was made because although the new owners of Universal Studios in 1936 were convinced that the horror genre was commercially dead, they inherited a contract stipulating Boris Karloff’s participation in one more film. Carl Laemmle Jr. had signed him to this contract after the success of Frankenstein (1931), so, not knowing what other genre to put him in, they commissioned a story that would give him a suitable role but stipulated it would not be a horror film." (Karloff plays an inventor of security systems who is kidnapped by a gang of thieves and forced into helping them commit robberies.)

Trivia for a bright sunny day in Branson (cold and rainy crappy day) on 4-30-09 is from the Departed.

This is the movie with the most uses of the word "fuck" and its derivatives (237) to win the Best Picture Oscar.

That is a great tidbit. Smile

And now...

Trivia Of The Day (5/1/2009)

Superman IV: The Quest For Peace

The movie was originally budgeted at $36 million dollars. Just before filming was to begin, Cannon Pictures, which was starting to suffer financial problems, slashed the budget to $17 million. As a result, the filmmakers had to cut corners by doing things like reusing special effects.

When the film was trimmed down from 134 minutes to 90 minutes, the producers considered using the deleted footage as the groundwork for a Superman V.

The vast majority of the external scenes in this film such as the U.N. building in Metropolis were filmed in and around the new town of Milton Keynes, Bucks, England. This was due to the Cannon producers Menahem Golan, Yoram Globus refusing to budget a shoot in New York City.

Cheap bastards.

The failure of this film at the box office prompted The Cannon Group Inc., to cancel a planned production of "Spiderman".

Any if you've ever seen the press releases, it wouldn't have been pretty.

Wes Craven was set to direct, but was replaced after creative differences with star Christopher Reeve.

Wes Craven's Superman? Interesting.

Trivia for the day from "Meet Me In St. Louis" (1944):

"Judy Garland scoffed at the idea of portraying yet another teenager (she was 21 when filming began) and wanted nothing to do with the film. Her mother even went to MGM chief Louis B. Mayer on her behalf. However, Vincente Minnelli convinced her to play the part of Esther Smith, and Judy later fell in love with the story (and Vincente Minnelli whom she married). In her later years she considered it one of her favorite roles.

"The Trolley Song" was ranked #26 and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" was ranked #72 by the American Film Institute in 2004 on the 100 Greatest Songs in American Films list."

Finally, the real trivia gem...

"Margaret O'Brien's mother wanted more money for her to play "Tootie" in the film. The studio then cast the young daughter of a lighting man working on the film, going so far as to even fit her with costumes. They then changed their minds and decided to go ahead and cast Margaret O'Brien. O'Brien was playing a scene when that lighting man intentionally dropped a heavy spotlight to the sound stage, narrowly missing the young actress. He was taken away and actually admitted to a mental institution for a time for his deed."

I will go with the iconic Rocky for today's trivia for May 1st.

Prior to shooting the fight between Sylvester Stallone and Carl Weathers, director John G. Avildsen decided that the scenes needed to be shot in a unique way so as to make the boxing more realistic than in other boxing movies of the period. He, Weathers and Stallone all went to a ring and began to block out the moves, but it wasn't working, and the fight was coming across as staged and not very energetic. Avildsen then told Stallone to go home and literally write out the fight; 'Rocky throws a left, Creed moves back, Creed goes right, Rocky goes right Creed jabs low etc'. The next day, Stallone returned with 32 pages of specific directions for the fight, which he and Weathers learned off like a ballet over a period of weeks. In total, Stallone and Weathers rehearsed for over 35 hours.

Holy hell! It worked, since that fight is incredible.

Trivia Of The Day (5/2/2009)

Supergirl

The scenes in which the monster tractor destroys the town took 22 consecutive days to shoot.

The original movie poster incorrectly shows the Statue of Liberty holding the torch in her left hand, instead of the right.

With a total gross of 14 million dollars this movie made the least money of all the films in the Superman series, followed just behind Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) which made 15 million. The total budget for Supergirl (1984) was 35.

Trivia 5/2

Crimes and Misdemeanors

Allen once joked that he'd never want to belong to any club that would have him as a member. He feels the same way about success. "When I put out a film that enjoys any acceptance that isn't the most mild or grudging," he laughs, "I immediately become suspicious of it."

So it was no surprise that when Crimes and Misdemanors was met with wide critical acclaim, the filmmaker suddenly began to reconsider its merit. "I was so depressed," recalls Allen, when he heard how well the film had been received. "I know I must be doing something wrong. If it really was a wonderful film, I feel it wouldn't get that interest."

Trivia of the day for 'Tron' (1982):

"Although the film was an initial failure, the arcade videogame based on it proved to be a tremendous hit and actually out-grossed the film. Due to the poor return at the box office of this and it's predecessor 'The Black Hole', Disney Studios did not make another live subject film for ten years."

and on the technical and special effects side:

"While computer animation was used in several scenes, the technology did not exist for a shot to contain both live actors and computer animation. Live-action shots were combined with hand-drawn animation. Strong editing, such as with the light cycle chase, created an apparently seamless blend of actors and computer animation. At the time, computers could generate static images, but could not automatically put them into motion. Thus, the coordinates for each image, such as a lightcycle, had to be entered for each individual frame. It took 600 coordinates to get 4 seconds of film. Each of these coordinates was entered into the computer by hand by the filmmakers. Finally, due to a mistake in production and emulsion ordering, there were flashing glitches randomly throughout parts of the film. They were "hidden" by simply including sound effects, so the glitches became part of the computer world's natural world!"

Pretty amazing how ground-breaking this one was when it came it. I'm looking forward to the sequel which is slated for a 2011 release.

That is actually a quote from Groucho Marx. So Woodie stole that joke from Groucho to make fun of himself. It is a good quote.

I read this one yesterday but had to wait for today.

Trivia for May 2nd is from Carlito's Way. This is hilarious. Do not mess with John...

According to John Leguizamo in his autobiography, he and Penelope Ann Miller did not get along during filming. He claims he got revenge on her by having the wardrobe department take in her clothes an inch at a time causing Miller to go on a crash diet.
