This one has been sitting as "Greenlit" for a while. The longer before it posts the more lame submissions keep coming in and getting redlit.

This dude directed the highway chase sequence in Matrix Reloaded AND the opening sequence to Final Destination 2, where everything but logs assploded. You'd think Fark would be in deep mourning.

The opening sequence in Final Destination 2 is a work of art.

Agreed. Considering the crash sequence was almost entirely practical effects, it was an amazing accomplishment.
Too bad the rest of the movie sucked. It's not often a flick peaks after the first ten minutes.

Now, Final Destination 4, that was just shiat on toast.

He also directed The Final Destination? I have to admit that I thought it was a pretty clever film.

"David R. Ellis, the Hollywood stuntman who went on to direct one of the most quoted exploitation action movies ever made"

One line from the movie makes it most quoted ever?

Airplane
Caddyshack
Pulp Fiction
Naked Gun
Robocop
Star Wars
Holy Grail
Princess Bride

The Grandson: A book?
Grandpa: That's right. When I was your age, television was called books. And this is a special book. It was the book my father used to read to me when I was sick, and I used to read it to your father. And today I'm gonna read it to you.
The Grandson: Has it got any sports in it?
Grandpa: Are you kidding? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...
The Grandson: Doesn't sound too bad. I'll try to stay awake.
Grandpa: Oh, well, thank you very much, very nice of you. Your vote of confidence is overwhelming.

I liked it too. I own it on DVD. It's a silly movie with lots of snake action and Samuel L Jackson chewing up the scenery.

/it would have been better without Keenan Thompson, though

He also directed Cellular, which is a really under appreciated tight little thriller that manages to subvert pretty much every cell phone cliche you can imagine.

RIP prolific Hollywood guy.

You'd think an obit would include some little bit of information about, oh I don't know, how he farking died.

Me too. That and Piranha are my go to B movies of late.

Holy crap! They're making "Winter's Tale" into a movie. My all time favorite novel. And the director's only prior experience is Fringe? Gonna need some Valium. Who's got the V?

That's some good reporting, Lou.

What did he die of? He was only 60 yo.

He's a stuntguy, many of them just can't work past 50 because they've literally broken everything. The damages they sustain just don't translate into a full lifecycle

Too bad.
