So this is kind of a fun fact. There have been three winners of the Academy's Best Actor Award in this movie.

Forrest Whitaker - Charles Jefferson
2007 - The Last King of Scotland

Sean Penn - Jeff Spicoli
2004 - Mystic River

Nicholas Cage - Brad's Bud (previously uncredited)
1996 - Leaving Las Vegas

Am I missing anyone?



Rusty Shackleford is just the name he uses to order Pizza with.

Judge Reinhold went on to star in Mock Trial

Phoebe Cates married an Oscar winner (Kevin Kline). Plus, lots of people have won Oscars, but how many actresses can say they were a masturbatory fantasy for a whole generation?

I love stats like this about odd movies. I still think Predator has it beat, though, with two future state governors in the cast.



I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.

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

I would have sworn that Jennifer Jason Leigh was at least nominated for an Oscar, but it looks like she wasn't.

Don't forget the kick-ass Fast Times soundtrack. I believe the success of it made studios re-think their approach to movie soundtracks.

As far as Predator goes, my hope was always that Carl Weathers would run for office.

They did a skit based on that on SNL a few years back.

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.

So, is anybody else watching this? If so, what are your initial thoughts and reactions? Mrs. DrOp and I decided to give it a try (she had years of Latin, Mythology, etc in the NY school systemso she is very excited).
