Cool find subby!

I had no idea Christian Bale was a child actor. Explains some things. I wonder if he WAS A PROFESSIONAL OR NOT.

The LOTR one was cool, but I've watched so much behind the scenes stuff it looks normal to me.

Public Enemies was a weak movie I find. I turned it off with about 35 mins to go and just read the ending on Wikipedia, just seemed too forced. There was no natural chemistry between Depp and the girl, the story was all over the place, etc.

Nicholson was indeed menacing in The Departed. One of the greatist films out there.

It's always weird seeing Princess Bride or Untouchables, but with people in 80's clothes. Cool though!

Came here for this. 29 photos of famous movies subby.

That movie was also bad at the history part and unfortunately I paid to see it in theaters so I was forced to see the awful ending.

I'm sure a 13-year-old Christian Bale working with Steven Spielberg in his debut film is going to be a lot better behaved than a 34-yearld old Christian Bale making Terminator 4 with McG.

Hollywood first got its glimpse of the Christian Bale we all know and love when he was informed that the movie about the Newsboys Strike of 1899 he was starring in was now going to be a musical so he had to start learning how to sing and dance. He was not happy about that.

Love A Matter Of Life And Death. Great mix of colour and black and white. Trivia: The girl at the centre of the film is the same actress who played the girl chimp in Planet Of The Apes.

Third Man is my all time favourite film. Doubt Hollywood would allow that ending today.

There was a lot wrong with that film, but the decision to shoot it with very grainy video cameras was the worst. It's one thing to want something to have a gritty feel, so you go for a kind of degraded video look. Worked freaking GREAT in Collateral with Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx. But that was a modern story, not a period piece. And Public Enemies looked so bad that one of my cinematographer friends called it "home movie" quality. Obviously Michael Mann is great, and the DP is the same guy who shot LA Confidential, among many other, so they knew what they were doing. It was a creative decision that misfired.

Also agree that the whole thing felt forced -- like it was an impression of what a serious crime drama is supposed to be, like a kid dressing up in his daddy's suit.

Guess you never saw infernal affairs. Well you did, just with an American cast and a virtual shot for shot lifting in several scenes.

Shame.

To be fair, I don't think any of us would react well if a project we were working on was suddenly going to be a musical.

Steve McQueen having tea is my favorite shot.

I expect to see the Little/Wilder shot show up on the Fark

Titanic pcp is news to me too.

That was called a joke, chief.

And now you've made me depressed.

At 34, Christian Bale was starring in Terminator, and had already been Batman, twice.

Me at 31? Not so much any of those....

/not an actor, just find it weird growing older

There are tough shoots and then there's Titanic, a film in which director, cast and crew all but ended up in the Hollywood equivalent of Davy Jones' Locker over a 160 wet, chilly and, thanks to one disgruntled crew member, occasionally PCP-fuelled days in California, Canada and Mexico.

That's an awfully long
sentence for a block
of text with an average
width of only 4 words.

Better than a donkey AJAXer making a page where the navigation doesn't work without Javascript.
But trust me or look at the source yourself: that's the least of that site's problems.

STAGECOACH! I think is the movie my mother actually worked with (dated) one of the Navajo's for a while after that. She said on the set they were told to speak Navajo during their scenes but nobody but them knew what they were saying. So they would have scenes where they are shown talking amoungst themselves and their just shootin the shiat and discussing how much they are all getting paid. Also hilariously their war-cry was YAHTAHEY! as they charged into battle. Bout like saying "Aloha".

I didn't realize that Steve McQueen was such a pain-in-the-ass on set. He always comes off as being humble, what with the whole car and motorcycle racing under an assumed name thing...

The next time you watch "The Magnificient Seven", pay attention to him when he's in the scene, but not the scene's focus (e.g. when he's in the background while someone else is talking):
he's constantly doing something with his hands, his hat, fidgeting around,...always doing some shiat.
IIRC some "making of" of the movie, there was a lot of bad blood behind the scenes because, among other things, McQueen didn't get to be the star of the movie, what with Yul Brynner's character being the lead and there being seven heroes. He didn't like not being #1, so in every scene where Brynner or others are the focus and McQueen is somewhere in the background, McQueen is moving around, trying to draw attention to him and away from the others.
