Bill Duke should run for office to give PREDATOR a trio of statesmen. I'd vote for him, especially if he used "I'm gonna have me some fun" as his campaign slogan.
To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow
Originally posted by Big BadI still think Predator has it beat, though, with two future state governors in the cast.
Uh, I'll take The Running Man as it has the same two governors (Ahnold and Jesse), a NFL Hall of Famer (Jim Brown), a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (Mick Fleetwood) and, of course, Richard Dawson. Plus it was directed by Starsky.
Boll and Anderson are both utterly wretched directors. I'm sure they're both very nice guys - in fact, Anderson's documented as being one of the most easygoing and pleasant film-makers working - but they're just terrible at producing movies.
