    When you're talking fantastic current actors

    You can't go wrong with Daniel Day-Lewis

    That said, there's something to be said for actors who don't have to go so method to achieve something close.

    Short Circuit was kind of a terrible movie you guys

    It probably was.

    But to kid me it was an awesome film about a sweet and innocent robot.

    You know to this day I only vividly remember the part when Johnny 5 got the shit beat out of him. Man, that was a terrible scene to watch as a kid.

    I watched Ender's Game and Riddick tonight

    Ender's Game was about as good as I could have hoped
    a few good changes (the kid fights, pulling out the Val/Peter sub plot) and a lot of dumb or just bad changes (everything else?)

    but I don't think there are enough decent child actors in the world to have possibly made it a good movie no matter how they changed it

    Harrison Ford had a good growl though and Anderson being played by a black lady was neat because it didn't matter

    Riddick was as much fun as people made it sound, barring the obvious
    The Riddick/Dahl parts that were pretty bad, which was a shame because I liked pretty much everything else she and riddick were doing separately but their "chemistry" was really dumb and pointlessly crude but it could have been worse for a female character named Doll I guess

    Also, has Riddick's full name always been Richard B Riddick? Because that was my favorite thing in the entire movie, and it is very close to edging out the various names of planets and societies as my favorite thing in the Riddick series

    how was it

    Aside from being as awful as I expected and then so much worse, it left me with the same question I had going into it, except now that question digs at me even more:

    How the hell did they get such a great cast to agree to be in such a dogshit film?

    The answer isn't money

    It can't be money

    Farrelly Brothers movies haven't made bank in a long time

    Watched.. uhh.. Final Destination 5 over the weekend.

    It's just sad, now. Might as well just order eight soggy paper bags of offal then chuck them into traffic.

    And even though the ending actually pulls out a slight reaction of "huh, neat", they still completely dodged the opportunity to do something half-way meaningful or even nice with it, and just ploughed their usual furrow even further.
    Girl survives in premonition at the start, so she's meant to survive it all, turns out they had broken up because she wants him to take a job in France and he doesn't want to leave her behind, blahhhhh, get to the end they've patched up and are on the plane that OHHHH IT'S THE CRASH FROM THE FIRST FILM! Wouldn't it have been more meaningful if she really didn't want to leave but was going to, and at the last minute decided against it. Then he gets on the plane, realises he's going to die, and dies happy knowing she's survived.

    The story goes that some people owed them some favors, so they shot some stuff. Then the Brothers went to someone else and said "we got this person to be in our movie, you want to be in our movie?" and so on until it was completed.

    That was actually Short Circuit 2. I know because I've seen it approximately 8 billion times. I have only seen the first one once though and all I remember is him getting struck by lightning.

    I just watched Movie 43

    seriously, I have to fight the urge to watch it every time I scroll past it in the queue, for those same questions

    I've heard enough to not be interested in at as an enjoyably bad movie, but I just have to actually see the cast doing this awful movie

    it can't be as bad as it's said to be

    or it could, but

    I just need to understand

    Ben Stiller is going to be the voice of remake Johnny-5.

    I don't know why I'm certain of that, I just have this feeling in my gut, like a disturbance in the Force. Or Spidey-sense. Or the Autobot Matrix.

    A remake of Short Circuit is weird

    It's like this admission that they ran out of cult classics to remake, and now they're just remaking whatever

    Why not have Fisher Stevens voice him, in the traditional vein of Hollywood not understanding how to tie callbacks to the original in any meaningful or purposeful way? Plus Fisher Stevens is definitely cheaper to get. What's he going to do, turn down a job?

    How did this fucking thing happen

    Like Sorce said, it was favors, although money also helped. Even with the favors it wasn't enough to justify being in a bad movie; Clooney immediately said no, and Gere tried to get out when he knew how shitty it'd be. Some just genuinely liked the segment they were in surprisingly, and stuck with it.

    On the bright side, there probably won't be a sequel!

    Pete (Johnny Knoxville) captures a leprechaun (Gerard Butler) for his roommate Brian (Seann William Scott) as a birthday present. After tying the leprechaun up in the basement, they demand he give them a pot of gold. The obscene leprechaun threatens that his brother is coming to save him. When he arrives, Brian and Pete are shot at but ultimately kill both leprechauns. At the end of the segment, Pete reveals he has also caught a fairy (Esti Ginzburg) who performs fellatio for gold coins.

    When I first heard this reported it was 'the son of Jim Henson died' and thought they meant Brian, and was really gutted, but then I was relieved that it was John, and then I felt horrible for feeling relieved, because it's still a tragedy to die so young and his life is no less worthy, and Sweetums is one of my favourite characters, but John's been a much less visible inheritor of his father's legacy than Brian.

    So basically my reaction was much like the happy/sad skit from Sesame Street.

    I always feel that, like Saw, both series started out with good films and a neat premise, then went down the gore porn ritual sacrifice alley that's probably easy and cheap to roll out every couple of years.
