I know a lot of Hollywood actors like to brag about “doing their own stunts” but you wonder how smart that is. Isn’t it just better to, eh, leave it to the people with the best training?
Tom Cruise should not be hanging out of the side of an air plane at 50 years old, let’s be honest.
It’s unfair on the stunt people in the industry too.
I remember Harrison Ford telling Parkinson about how he loved doing all his own stunts for the first Indiana Jones movie…until his stuntman came up to him and asked him, very nicely, not to do it anymore. Because while Harrison wasn’t getting extra money for doing that stuff, the stuntman relied on this to make a living.
Harrison was basically: “Oh, shit. Sorry.” He was embarrassed.
Okay. I’ve realized I could never be in an action movie. Just look at this gif from aou. Look at it. Look at the complete lack of robots. Cap is repeatedly punching the ground. Scarlet witch is pretending to do magic at nothing. Thor is just…floating around? I COULD NEVER DO THIS AND KEEP A STRAIGHT FACE
Ever get tired of the “bury your gays” trope? In this new action-comedy thriller, the Gays bury you!!
The movie we’ve all been waiting for!! My hypothetical movie that follows a band of LGTBQ+ people after the start of the zombie apocalypse, including trans/nb, ace, and disabled characters. Guaranteed no fuckboys on screen unless they are getting their ass kicked.
The movie would be comprised of a 100% queer cast, all trained in combat for realism.
A guy I knew made a good point about how we don’t truly appreciate action movie actors: “Look, it’s easy to make Shakespeare sound good. Any actor can do that. But to make silly action Hollywood dialogue sound amazing and dramatic, that is something.”
This scene is incredible.
Rickman and Willis are tremendous. How they taunt each other.
