the porn film Shaving Ryan's Privates was actually released before Saving Private Ryan. After viewing the porno, Speilberg got the idea of rearranging the title and came up with the story of 8 US soldiers searching for a certain private Ryan after D-Day. Due to the success of SPR, Shaving Ryan's Privates was re-released and has gained a newfound audience and has achieved cult status with many fans.

Micheal Bay and Jerry Bruckhiemer are actually the same person.

Piranha 2 is considered by the Emperor of Japan as James Cameron's best film.

The shark from Jaws was played by Cameron Diaz, and is a symbolic representation of capitalism. Look out for more Marxist references in Spielberg's work!

James Cameron firmly believes that drinking coconut milk improves an audience member’s enjoyment of his films. Although initially dismissed by many film critics as ludicrous, this theory was gained credibility when during a showing of Titanic in Blackpool one film-goer, who had been drinking coconut milk earlier that day, physically exploded out of sheer joy. This has subsequently affected Cameron’s cinematic output since the release of that film in order for scientists to develop and manufacture the world’s first CMS (Coconut Milk Scanner) device. These devices have now been approved and are in mass production. All cinemas will be fitted with CMSs at the box office in time for the release of Avatar.

Guy Ritchie originally directed The Butterfly Effect. It was so terrible not even he felt compelled to release under his name.

Although the Butterfly effect was panned by most, there are a few influential figures that believe it to be the greatest story ever told. These people are in fact writing up a doctrine based on its philosophies and morals and believe that all future societies will be based upon its teachings.

Also, the steak everyone loves in the Matrix (see thread I was just in) was created digitally after the scene was shot. This is due to the fact that when modern cameras shoot beef products they all have a passing resemblance to Willem Defoe’s head when played back in the rushes.

Christopher Walken still has a watch lodged up his anus after his method acting approach to Pulp Fiction went horribly wrong. His attempts to explain said blockage at a New York hospital inspired the 'toy car up rectum' portion of 'Jackass The Movie'.

If you sit through the credits of Commando right to the end, there's a much missed final scene where you can hear the guy dropped off the cliff by Arnold saying "I'm not dead, I'm just really badly injured". Will Ferrell recreated this scene in his turn as Mustafa in Austin Powers, but only about six people worldwide got the joke.

Matt Damon winning the sexiest man alive award is one of those elaborate George Clooney pranks we keep hearing about.

Due to the ongoing writers strikes in America, a major Hollywood studio has decided to test the theory that a if you lock enough primates in a room with typewriters they'll knock out a decent script eventually. The resulting script, a 200 page excrement smeared mess, has already been purchased by Tom Cruise, who boldly predicts he will once again rule the 2009 boxoffice with the resulting film 'jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjooooo%%'.

Sylvester Stallone, buoyed by the comeback success of Rocky and positive buzz for Rambo IV, will return to our screens in 'Over The Top 2'.

And, according to my media studies lecturer at uni in the late 90's, 'Independence Day' was actually a complex allegory about the American fear of China's predicted status as a world superpower and Alien is all about the male fear of the vagina. Unfortunately, he was right on both scores rather than simply reading far too much into every movie ever made in an attempt to justify the very idea of his module on that course. The ruling Communist government in China have already ensured their world power status can't be toppled by putting a firewall into place, and Earth is doomed as the warrior Z'tong race towards it from their planet at the edges of our galaxy, and they just so happen to look like a woman's privates. Their plans for Earth's invasion were set in motion thousands of years ago, when they buried their ultimate weapon, a 70 million tonne thermo nuclear weapon they call 'The Clit WMD' deep under Earth's crust. They can't believe that we never found it.

When Spielberg finished filming Saving private ryan he had a idea for a crossover "Saving Oskar Schindler" but no film companies were intrested in making it.

Bruce Willis was asked if he would be intrested in being in another Die hard film:
Die hard die hungry. He thought this was a joke so he declined it. The role was given to someone else.

Die hard with a vengance was originally going to be called Die hard: die harderer

Tom Cruise (the person) is an anagram of James Cromwell (the name).

The Saw movies are actually snuff films.  Tobin Bell, Leigh Wannell, James Wan and Darren Lynn Bousman kidnap jobbing actors and force them to out-ham each other while trying to escape very real traps.

  • Morgan Freeman once dated M Night Shyamalan.
  • John Goodman is scared of anything green. Apparently it 'represents healthy living'.
  • Sigourney Weaver hates her silly name whereas Dennis Weaver quite liked it.

Vin Diesel's trademark gravelly voice is actually his high voice. He regularly intakes helium so no-one can hear his actual voice. If you were to hear his real voice your head would cave in, your Colon would shrivel up and a little bit of wee would come out. The last known person to hear Vin Diesel's real voice was Stephen Hawking. He was not pleased.




Can't believe I missed that one!

The Long Good Friday is actually a documentary.  Harold Shand decided to change his name to Bob Hoskins and used his contacts to retroactively change his  and Pierce Brosnan's name in all the credits and film an alternate ending.  In the original ending, he and Pierce escape together and patent those watches/remote controls.

Paul WS Anderson ghost-wrote Good Will Hunting, Scream and Fight Club.  He has engineered a career in schlock as part of an elborate prank.

  • In order to coax both Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington onto the American Gangster set every day, Ridley Scott got his assistants to dangle a fake Virtuosity 2 script in front of the powerhouse actors like a carrot in front of a donkey.
  • The original plot treatment for Raiders of the Lost Ark had the Indiana Jones character not wield a bull whip, but rather a string of sausages. Steven Speilberg soon veto'd the idea when leading man Tom Selleck was badly mauled by a pack of dogs, leaving his face so scarred he resembled a character from Star Wars.
  • On the set of Basic Instinct 2, the safety word was "mingebiscuit."
  • Before finding fame as a famous person, Colin Farrell was employed on various movies as a smoke machine.
  • Every single film produced around the world since 1980 has begun with the pitch "It's a sequel to Friday the 13th." Familiar plot details are then filtered out along the way, although occasionally one still slips through the cracks.
  • Cult sci-fi action comedy Dazed & Confused was actually filmed in 1976, but director Richard Linklater misplaced all the dailies until 1993, when they turned up down the back of the sofa alongside his car keys and a a tu penny bit.
