But we can agree that Jaws 3 was horrific with some of the worst 3D in history, right?

I never saw Jaws 3 in 3D, but Jaws: The Revenge was awful. Had the Jaws series equivalent of Jar-Jar Binks because they were in the Bahamas or whatever.

Oh, I don't know dude......... the floating arm? The non-moving shark gliding through the control room window? The exploding fish guts???? Pretty epic stuff. :lol:

But yeah, it was awful. Not as bad as Jaws: The Revenge, tho. That is one of the all-time worst films I've ever seen.

Story meeting: "Okay guys, here's the deal. Sean Brody has moved back to Amity Island and become a Water Cop, apparently over his fear of water (as detailed in the third film) despite watching Marty McFly's mom have her leg nearly bitten off. But guess what? There's another giant shark in Amity! This eats Sean, and puts mom Ellen in a total bummer mood. So she decides to 'peace out' and chill in the Bahamas with her other son, Mike - who has switched careers from structural engineering to.... wait for it.... marine biology. But the shark follows her, using its psychic Shark-Sense™, except it doesn't follow her; it beats her there, despite the fact that she is flying on a 747 and he is, as you might expect from a shark, swimming. Then the shark will terrorize children on an inflatable banana before sinking Charlie Croker's Beechcraft Bonanza (which I should mention is an airplane) and eating Sonny Spoon. This will enrage the Brodys so much that they will throw a flashbulb down the gullet of the 6,000 pound fish which somehow temporarily immobilizes the beast, so Ellen can stab it with a sailboat. The end."

I mean..... wow. :face:

I feel like we glossed over the fact that someone said they like "ghostbusters 2" better than the original a few pages back.

Same. I like the third better than 2, but that's not saying much.

so wait...in the last one, you thought it was a BAD idea to cast a love interest who was clearly repulsed by the person she was supposed to be attracted to?

I think I liked AP 2 more than 1. And Goldmember was the least of them, but I still liked it. Actually its the only one I own.

I really like Goldmember, but AP2 was meh. I do have a couple fun memories from those films, tho. When AP first came out, I remember going with my buddy and our girlfriends.... he and I were the only two people laughing. Then it suddenly became this big hit on home video. When the second movie came out, I went to a film music seminar that screened the movie then had a Q&A afterward with the music supervisor and Susanna Hoffs (she wrote all the 'psychedelic scene break' interstitial music; her husband directed the movies); she was incredibly beautiful in person, was actually quite taken aback by it. And when the third one came out, my friend was working at New Line and she stunned us all by saying that Beyonce was actually really nice and accommodating to work with and never gave her any hassles.... while Mike Meyers was an egotistical, obnoxious twerp who made everything an order of magnitude more difficult than it needed to be.

To be fair, wasn't he producing and acting out like 4 major characters in a movie that he wrote?

I was looking for someone to say Mighty Ducks 2 and I was going to destroy them, hardcore, internet rambo style. MD3 was lolbad, but MD2 was by far the best one.

He has a reputation for treating the underlings at the studios that do 90% of the leg work of making movies successful like dogs. And that was earned before AP existed. My friend just had never directly dealt with or experienced it before Goldmember.

The real takeaway from that wasn't that Myers is little more than a garden variety diva, but rather that Beyonce was not. I don't know if it's still the case, but 10-11 years ago her dad was her manager. And you would think that if managers are famous for jealously protecting their client's interests, then a manager who's client is his daughter would be a holy nightmare. But he was apparently always super mellow and cheerful, and when B herself was involved she was polite but shy and somewhat awkward. She would bring doughnuts and bagels to publicity photoshoots (despite them being professionally catered). You don't normally see A-listers acting like that behind the scenes. I'd be interested to find out if she's still like that today, considering nearly every waking moment of her life she has a videographer following her around.

Ahh I see. But yeah, i hadn't heard about Myers being difficult but I had heard Beyonce was easy to work with. I commented on the part that surprised me.

Goldmember was not only my ex's favorite ap movie, but one of her favorite movies overall.

I question the value of the opinion of anyone who considers a comedy one of their favorite movies.

???

So because I rank M*A*S*H, Young Frankenstein, Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, Ghostbusters and Monty Python's Life Of Brian among my favorite movies, my opinion - in general - is suspect?

Yes, that affects the value of your opinion on movies to me.
