I don't know about that. Pacific Rim did similar numbers ($180 million budget with $411 million worldwide gross) and it got a sequel. "We have lost I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E! I repeat, we have no I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E!" The double entendre XD The genius of the scene is the fact that the serious, dramatic music doesn't match the ridiculousness of what's happening on the screen. I hate scatological humour but this is one of the most hilarious scenes I've ever seen. What an underrated movie. I did my bit in person some time ago by pretending I had no idea where an American tourist was from. It went like this: Me: "You have an interesting accent. Where are you from?" Him: "Oh, I'm from the USA." Me: "Where's that?" Him: "You don't where America is?" Me: "Never heard of it. Is it near Mexico or something?" This is silly. In the Disney animated version of Mulan, which is a story set in ancient China, there is a magical dragon character voiced by a distinctly black actor, when everyone knows there were no black people in ancient China and dragons are not part of African culture. It wasn't a problem 20 years ago so it shouldn't be a problem now wrt Tinkerbell. Interesting. This is another movie I've never heard of. Face/Off is one of the best action movies of the 90s and I know who Lorenzo Lamas is so I'll give this movie a shot if I can find it. I haven't heard of Stir of Echoes. I'll add it to my watch list since I enjoyed Sixth Sense so much. Is Ong Bak the one where someone kidnaps Tony Jaa's elephant? I think it's called The Protector where I'm from. I prefer the first Raid for its ingeniously simple premise. You can watch it in Indonesian without subtitles and still understand the plot. The second movie got a little bit too complicated but featured more impressive action sequences. That Hammer Girl and Baseball Guy were amazing! <blockquote>By the way, the actor that plays 'Mad Dog' appears in the last John Wick movie. </blockquote> I recognized him. And his partner was the villain who uses curved blades in that brutal kitchen fight scene in The Raid 2. It was a nice surprise seeing them both in John Wick 3. <blockquote>A.I. came out in 2001.</blockquote> Hmm, you're correct. My mistake. View all replies >
