WWE has been making movies for the last several years. Not surprised you hadn't heard of any of them.

What, you mean people who aren't bombarded by ads for WWE Films while watching RAW have never heard of such gems as The Chaperone and Inside Out? Or The Marine 2? Or The Marine 3? Or The Marine 4: Marine Harder?

Also, this better turn into a repeat of the old Zeus angle on Raw or Smackdown.

I want to see a black midget with his hair shaved into "Z"s come in and face Hornswoggle because he things Hornswoggle is a real leprechaun.
 
2012-03-16 07:24:26 AM
Well, they did co-produce The Rundown, so I guess not everything they touch turns to shiat.

Damn well better have Warwick attached to it.

What's the point of a reboot if you use the same actor?

Actually I could have stopped at "what's the point of a reboot"

Leprechaun was awesome, I don't care who says otherwise. It even turned into a series which managed to follow well established movie/horror tropes.

Lep in the hood, up to no good!

Only if Aniston is in it.

With her original nose.

Sounds like a no-starter. Lionsgate is notorious for producing and releasing crap. Doesn't really speak well to a franchise if they're putting out your efforts.

Then again, this is the WWE, where all of their films harken back to the '80s action films without the class.
 
2012-03-16 08:05:40 AM
Yeah. She pulled a Jennifer Gray.
Those bulbous snozzes can be downright attractive on younger women, but later they drift into clown-nose territory as a consequence of normal aging. I preferred the original noses on both Jennifers.

Subby doesnt remember this? But the writing, acting, and directing were so good!

Syfy will be worth watching on Saturday. They always run a marathon of the Leprechaun movies. I can't decide which one is more ludicrous, the one where he is in the city or the one where he is in space.

Yeah I can't place exactly which film it was but there was a definite point where the franchise started to lose its realism.

Will I finally get that sequel to No Holds Barred that I've dreamed of?

The WrestleMania sequels seem to be pretty popular whenever they come out. Maybe the most popular movie series ever, now that I think about it.

It makes for classic stupid movies, though.

I know what I'm doing tomorrow.

Drinking beer, smelling my housemate boiling beef and cabbage all day for her St. Pat's dinner and watch the Leprechaun marathon. Missed it last year because the 17th was on a Friday.

I was getting ready to tell you off, but then I thought about it for a second.

Lights
Makeup
Directors
Producers
Scripts
Acting
Plots/Subplots
Cameras
Props
DVD sales/rentals
Dressing Rooms
Casting Couches


I tried to think of a way to tell you how ignorant you were, but the only difference between wrestling and films that I could think of is that wrestling is done in front of a live audience. That seems really inconsequential to the claim that WrestleMania is a film series, so I guess I have to concede your point after all. You are still a jackass, but you are right. I farking hate you.

You are wrong. Wrestlemania is a Grand Daddy. Only a Grand Daddy.

Wrestlemania doesn't use CGI. To my knowledge Wrestlemania does not try to shove a dozen SNL rejects down our throats every year. And comparatively speaking, Wrestlemania movies are really cheap to make.

Gunny Highway: You are wrong. Wrestlemania is a Grand Daddy. Only a Grand Daddy.


WTF does that even mean? Do you English?

This will be watchable only if they have The Big Show star in the title role.

There's a lot more that goes into moviemaking than what you've listed. But if the "found footage" genre can be considered film then I suppose he is right.

Now hang on a second. Lionsgate gave us Frailty and the Crank movies, which is precisely 10,000 times the contribution to cinema that Spike has ever given.

There's nothing wrong with the first six. The only way WWE could outdo the originals is if they cast Chris Jericho as the Leprechaun, and used the same technology/camera angles Peter Jackson used for the hobbits in Lord of the Rings. Just imagine a screaming, foulmouthed, pint sized Chris Jericho in a green suit, looking for his pot of gold.

Leprechaun in the Hood was awesome. Warwick Davis made all of the movies with his delivery.

The new one should be him working as a pimp with all of the WWE Diva's playing the hos.


meanwhile, anyone that likes to dress for foreplay

If this leads them to bring back Julian Sands as the Warlock, it's cool.

/Won't you give your boy a kiss, mommy?

Elsewhere it says Brodus Clay is going to be in a horror movie. Can somebody go and call his momma?

We don't even need a sequel. We need the original on DVD, just so we can relive its perpetual awful-ness.
