Commando Facts You Never Knew

Commando Facts You Never Knew
It doesn't matter if you're a mercenary, a Green Beret, or a small army: if you mess with Arnold's kid, you're going down. That's right, it's Commando! Let off some steam as we talk about one of the best action movies ever. Here we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about Commando.

It was written for Gene Simmons.

Commando was originally conceived as a vehicle for none other than Gene Simmons. Despite the critical beating taken by Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park, the Demon still had the acting bug going into the '80s. He played the villain in Tom Selleck's Runaway, turned up in an episode of Miami Vice, and played a radio DJ in one of MovieWeb's favorite cult films, Trick Or Treat. Simmons actually turned down Commando, which was co-written by his friends Matthew Weisman and Jeph Loeb, who is now the head of Marvel Television.

When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth: The Summer of Cinema 1993 – 25 Years Later

The summer of 1993 felt like a high stakes cinematic card trick. A full deck of superstars was roughly shuffled so that by summer’s end, some kings ended up as jokers and many a knave turned over a sweet ace. Bluffs were called, some royal flushes turned up out of nowhere, and in the end the whole table was kicked over by a T-Rex, sending all the chips flying.

This week we will once again see a merry band of naive, edible human beings sharing the screen with monstrous dinosaurs as Jurassic World returns with Fallen Kingdom. Perhaps we’re used to it by now, but back in 1993, the last time man and dinosaur had teamed up to any noticeable effect was probably The Valley of the Gwangi. The seismic leap forward in special effects since then meant that the release of Jurassic Park was a genuine movie event, much

That Was Y&R Alum John Enos Playing Roger on Days Of Our Lives

Soap fans might have thought Roger Taylor looked familiar in recent episodes of Days Of Our Lives, and that’s because he was played by John Enos! The actor, best known to daytime viewers as Bobby Marsino on The Young & The Restless was orignally tapped for the role of the Elvis impersonator as part of the mystery surrounding the return of Will Horton to the soap. “So much fun with Alison Sweeney (Sami) and Deidre Hall (Marlena),” the actor tweeted. Enos might also be familiar from his primetime roles. In the mid-‘90s, he played Bobby Parezi on Melrose Place, and could be seen in guest appearances on series like Sex And The City, NYPD Blue, CSI: NY and Gotham. The actor has also appeared on the silver screen in films like Death Becomes Her, Demolition Man, The Rock, and Blade. But soap fans remember him as strip club owner Bobby Marsino on Y&R,

Sylvester Stallone Goes Through His Old Movie Costumes and Props

Watching Sylvester Stallone go through his old movie costumes and props you can imagine the memories that are going through his head. The number of props and costumes he must have gone through is just insane to think about since the man has been in so many different movies, good and bad. Calling the Demolition Man a movie ahead of its time might be accurate but in terms of action and acting it wasn’t really that great when you go back and look at it. But it was one of the more action-packed movies that he was a part of

The Black Panther movie that never was

Rob Leane Feb 26, 2018

Before he was Blade, Wesley Snipes pushed hard to get a Black Panther movie made in the 1990s...

Black Panther, the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie with a black title character, has launched – at long last - in spectacular style. The film earned rave reviews, before doing gangbusters at the global box office. Sequel talk has already begun, and Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa has cemented his place in the McU, just in time for Wakanda to become a battleground in this summer’s humungous crossover event, Avengers: Infinity War.

However, this article isn’t about the Black Panther movie that you’ve recently seen and probably loved. Rather, this article is about the Black Panther movie you never got to see: the one that Wesley Snipes was trying to make back in the 1990s.

New Taco Bell in China Reminds us of “Demolition Man”

This new Taco Bell that’s opened up in China is bringing back visions Demolition Man with Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes. If you don’t remember the movie take a look at the clip below and drink it all in. In the movie Taco Bell was the only fast food chain to survive the franchise wars and as a result they took over the industry. Now I like a good taco every now and then but something about Taco Bell taking over doesn’t seem like it would sit very well. This place in China though looks positively swanky, as though the

Wesley Snipes Admits He Attempted To Make ‘Black Panther’ 20 Years Ago, Cast Talk Diversity And Change In Hollywood

  • ET Canada
The upcoming movie “Black Panther” has had everybody talking, but actor Wesley Snipes insists it was a much different story 20 years ago. Snipes, 55, who has starred in the likes of “Demolition Man” and “White Men Can’t Jump”, admitted he tried to create a similar movie back in the 1990s. He told Variety: “We

Review: Final Recall (2017)

Review: Final Recall (2017)
After a brief opening scene in space where an incident affects two astronauts, Final Recall begins on familiar ground with a cabin in the woods style horror, as five friends take a vacation. With no preconceptions regarding the dangers of snooping, they find themselves stumbling into trouble with a local woodlander called Hunter (Wesley Snipes), whom they only just manage to avoid. Retreating to the safety of their cabin, it is not long before a mysterious storm starts to appear in the sky. It’s going to be a long night and they will soon realise there are worse things to fear in the woods.

Final Recall has some interesting ideas but with the film constantly changing, it’s difficult to know what they are trying to achieve. The first part of the film works well as a horror, with plenty of tension building between the group and Hunter due to their own naivety.

NYC Weekend Watch: ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ on 70mm, ‘On the Silver Globe,’ Double Features & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Warner Bros. Can't Dodge Sylvester Stallone's Fraud Lawsuit

Warner Bros. Can't Dodge Sylvester Stallone's Fraud Lawsuit
Sylvester Stallone has scored an early and significant ruling in his lawsuit against Warner Bros. over profits from the 1993 science-fiction film Demolition Man. Not only has a Los Angeles Superior Court judge rejected the studio's bid to throw out breach of contract and fraud claims, but the actor is being permitted to bring a potentially big claim that Warners' accounting practices are likely to deceive the public, including others in Hollywood with profit participation agreements.

Through his loan-out company Rogue Marble, Stallone filed his lawsuit in April.

"The motion picture studios are notoriously greedy," stated the complaint....

Johnny Depp Wanted to Be in ‘Face/Off’ Until He Realized It Wasn’t About Hockey

Johnny Depp Wanted to Be in ‘Face/Off’ Until He Realized It Wasn’t About Hockey
Everyone knows “Face/Off” isn’t about hockey. What a new oral history presupposes is…what if it had been? ShortList recently took a deep dive into the beloved, bonkers action flick starring Nicolas Cage and John Travolta (or is it the other way around?), which was almost a very different movie with a very different star. “Demolition Man” director Marco Brambilla was briefly attached to the project, and Johnny Depp was considering starring — until he realized it wasn’t about hockey.

Newswire: Johnny Depp wasn’t in Face/Off because he was sad it wasn’t about hockey

As far as ’90s action trash goes, Face/Off is fairly sublime, combining a gleefully dumb premise with some great over-the-top acting from both John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. But the tale of Sean Archer and Castor Troy was almost a very different film—multiple times over—as revealed in a recent oral history courtesy of Ralph Jones at ShortList. Jones’ article tracks the multiple incarnations of the film, including the time it almost starred Johnny Depp—except he was too mad that it wasn’t about hockey.

The anecdote in question comes from a period when the film was briefly in the hands of Demolition Man director Marco Brambilla, when Paramount wanted Depp in one of the starring roles, opposite Cage. When Depp finally got around to reading the script, though, he realized that, contrary to what he’d thought, it wasn’t a hockey film, and he abruptly

Will Armed Response Bring Wesley Snipes All the Way Back?

At one point in time Wesley Snipes was one of the biggest action stars in the United States, as shown by his roles in Demolition Man, Passenger 57, and the Blade franchise. However, his career suffered a slowdown following Blade: Trinity in 2004, which was not helped by his conviction for tax fraud. Said career did not come to a complete stop, seeing as how Snipes continued to make direct-to-dvd movies, but it was clear that he was no longer at the top. Since that time, Snipes has had some minor roles in movies released in the movie theaters, with

Great Job, Internet!: In the sci-fi versions of our cities, we’re all screwed

Now that a real-life dystopia is all but certainly right around the corner, it’s probably a good time to research what life could possibly be like in the crumbling, over-crowded major cities of future America. The most reliable source for this kind of research is, of course, popular sci-fi movies, which depict American metropolises in varying degrees of awful, from the sterile and Taco Bell-obsessed Los Angeles of Demolition Man to the sunken skyscrapers of New York City in A.I.: Artificial Intelligence. Recently, the real estate gurus at Redfin put together some handy infographics using the plot descriptions of 44 futuristic films to show which cities you’ll most likely want to be living in when the sci-fi shit hits the fan. (Hint: It’s none of them. We’re all going to die.)

The myth of The Madness Of King George

Simon Brew Jun 19, 2017

The Madness Of King George is a film that was sold off the back of a story that wasn’t true…

Nominated for four Oscars, and bringing the late, great Nigel Hawthorne to the attention of movie audiences (following his sensational work in television and on the stage), The Madness Of King George was a real breakout hit. Premiering in December 1994 (just two months after filming wrapped!), and released in the UK in March 1995, the film won one Academy Award, three BAFTAs, and grossed over $15m in the Us alone.

But there’s one story about the movie that continues to circle. And it’s to do with its title.

The film is based on Alan Bennett’s play, The Madness Of King George III, that tells the story of the health issues that King George III suffered during his reign in the 18th century. But when

Movie Reboot Ideas I Can Get Behind: “Nighthawks”

When you think of Sylvester Stallone you think of two characters: Rocky and Rambo. And then when you think about him some more his run of action films in the 90s come to mind. Movies like Demolition Man or The Specialist or Assassins top my list. But there’s one movie that I’ll always consider to be one of his best and that’s the 1981 cops chasing terrorist film Nighthawks. The movie stars Stallone and Billy Dee Williams as police detectives who are trying to tack down a terrorist in New York City who is played by Rutger Hauer. It’s one
