This was back in the day when Annie had no real competition (in terms of huge blockbusters) He was considered *that* big, that it made sense that the only star big enough to mock Schwarzenegger *was* himself. I'm guessing Arnold figured he was big enough to second guess his fanbase (and re-write the rules) after all, he'd done a couple of (successful) comedies by this point (and essentially watered down the Terminator franchise, by becoming the hero) The word-of-mouth surrounding Jurassic Park's groundbreaking CGI FX was big news...and suddenly the likes of Schwarzenegger (once the only required 'effect' in his movies) took a back seat to near-seemless CGI technology (a tonal-shift which Schwarzenegger himself, ushered in with T2 a few years earlier) As it stands, I actually prefer LAST ACTION HERO over Jurassic Park (which ironically, like T2 before it, is largely remembered *for* it's FX, and little else) If it's any consolation (millionaire) Bruce Willis is 67. (there's a key-word hidden amid that previous statement) 'Bent a few elbows' this afternoon/evening (must be having a 'Bukowski-Moment') I haven't liked a Tarantino film since 'City On Fire' As I previously mentioned, forgo the budgetary/technical constraints associated with Shivers & Rabid (and instead concentrate on the ideas /implications behind such) and I'm have to say I prefer Cronenberg over Lynch (given that the latter can only do his 'weird' schtick, and little else) Croneenberg has (at very least) proven himself to be a seasoned all-arounder. As it stands, I couldn't give a dry-Ethiopian-fart for anything Scorsese did after 'Raging Bull' (despite his subsequent popularity) And don't get me started on Tarantino? I guess 'taste' is truly subjective? In regards to this songs sudden resurgence, it's a mixture of repulsion and pride (ultimately, I'm just glad an actual 'great' song is out-sourcing shite by Beyonce'/ Swift/ Cardi-B and all the other shite that clogs up the 'charts') I can only hope it leads to the 'youth' searching out other good songs (without the benefit of a shite TV show telling them to) Perhaps such enlightenment, may improve their actual choice in TV shows , also? What do think of Rabid, Shivers, Dead Zone? I'll be honest and say I'm indifferent about 'The Fly' or 'Videodrome' Part 2 (never got the 'love' for #4?) His 'Biden inauguration' concert, pretty much 'undone' everything he'd done previously. But like most millionaires (of his age group) he likely resonates with what Biden is saying and/or doing (or more importantly...not saying/doing) Given his initial budgets...both 'Shivers' and 'Rabid' (the latter especially) are masterpieces. I also think highly of 'Eastern Promises' too View all replies >
