oh you didnt know?
« on: January 18, 2018, 12:20:38 PM »
I know we are all have useless trivial facts locked away for no reason at all, so might as well dump them here.

Ill start with this:
Harold Ramis ended up selecting Kenny Loggins to write the theme song for Caddyshack which was of course, "I'm Alright."
But did you know he originally wanted Pink Floyd to write and perform one or more songs to play over the opening and closing credits?
No? Well, now you do.
Pink Floyd had just released The Wall an declined.
Oh and as an aside, Don Rickles was originally cast as Al Czervik (Dangerfield's character) and I think he would have worked just as well.

Something I had read a year or two ago and didn't know about: apparently the actors in Alien didn't know about the chest-burster scene, so when it did happen that really was them flipping out.

And in Die Hard (aka the greatest Christmas movie ever), that scene at the end where Hans Gruber falls? They released him a second before they told him it was going to be, so Alan Rickman's look of shock was real as well.
“But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.” - Martin Luther King, Jr

The scene in Alien: Resurrection when Sigourney Weaver nails the basketball shot behind her back without looking? That actually happened.

Didnt know the first bit, did know the second one. Wasn't it something like they told him "...on three" and dropped him on "two?"

You can look it up on Youtube, they included the behind the scenes footage on the DVD but it's available on YouTube. Worth it just for Ron Pearlman's reaction.

Scream was inspired by Halloween, I think most knew that, but I didnt know it was also partly inspired by the Gainesville Ripper.
Was I the only one?

I didn't know this was going to be a thing. Netflix, eh? Maybe we'll get a real ending.

So, my girlfriend tagged me in the above picture on Facebook so I assumed she'd done the proper research but I was wrong. I unfortunately cannot corroborate what that pic is saying.

I apologise.
