filmtrivia In a deleted scene on the Dazed And Confused DVD- Fred O'Bannion (Ben Affleck) goes home and changes his clothes after getting white paint dumped on him. He shows up at the keg party in the woods towards the end of the movie vowing revenge on the freshman. If you pause the film during the regular edit you can see O'bannion cheering on Clint (Nicky Katt) to beat up Mike (Adam Goldberg) during their fight. 11mon

    Malcolm X potrayed by Denzel Washington◆ Denzel's father died when filming for Malcom X began. He was flying to New York on April 1991 to meet with Spike Lee, when he landed his brother was there and told him (Dad had a stroke). His dad died that August, which is around the time filming started◆Upon being cast in the film, Denzel interviewed people who knew Malcolm X, among them was Betty Shabazz (the wife of Malcolm who also served as a consultant on the film). He also interviewed two of Malcom's brothers◆ Denzel said he brought some of his own father's preacher characteristics to his portrayal of Malcolm X. He said he remembered certain cadences in the way his father would set up certain things. And when he would hear Malcolm X, he would say, (Oh, he sets it up the same way). Denzel said one of the things he noticed about Malcolm was that he was always pointing. Another obsevation was that Malcom didn’t say (against) he said (a-ginst) so he started throwing in extra “a-ginst”s, to stay with Malcom's rhythm of speech◆Denzel focused on what he had in common with Malcom. He was 37 while potraying Malcolm who was 39 when he was assassinated. Both men were from large families, both of their fathers were ministers, and both were raised primarily by their mothers◆ Denzel said the (Schaumburg Library) in Harlem became his second home since it was the most resourceful place advance his knowledge of Malcolm◆ 8mon
  •   filmtrivia In 1981 Denzel was in a play titled (When the Chickens Come Home to Roost) at The New Federal Theater on 292 Henry St New York, New York.
    The play dealt with the relationship between Malcolm X and Elijah Muhammad. He admitted he knew little about Malcolm X and had not yet read (The Autobiography of Malcolm X). Denzel prepared by reading books and articles by and about Malcolm X and went over hours of tape and film footage of speeches◆ The play earned Denzel a warm review by (Frank Rich) who was at the time the chief theater critic of The New York Times◆ He won an Audelco Award (Audience Development Committee, Inc., which recognizes excellence in New York African-American theater productions)◆ It was a role he would later revisit a decade later on the big screen to much acclaim in Spike Lee's 1992 biopic◆Spike Lee, who had worked with Denzel on (Mo' Better Blues) cited Washington's performance as Malcolm X in an Off Broadway play as superb◆However, some purists noted that Denzel was far shorter and had a far darker complexion than the real Malcolm X, who stood 6' 4" and had notably reddish hair and a lighter complexion (due to his mother's partial white ancestry). 8mon
  •   greenparty_ca Nice pic! 8mon
  •   danielcorlewsr I don't getv why Denzel's hair is like red 7mon
  •   filmtrivia @save_you101 it was to make up for the fact that he was not light skin like Malcolm actually was. Malcolm used to being known as: (Detroit Red) and had reddish hair growing up due to his mixed heritage 7mon
  •   danielcorlewsr Oh ok 7mon

filmtrivia The book came out in 1962, 9 years before the film. The author (Anthony Burgess) lived for a time in Malaysia during World War 2. After returning to London his wife was assaulted and beaten by four American G.I.'s during the black-out. This attack resulted in a miscarriage and a lifetime of gynecological troubles for his wife◆
The incident and Burgess being  raised as a strict Roman Catholic inspiring this story. A parable about Christian free will and forgiveness. His take on it was that to be a true Christian, one had to forgive the most horrifying of acts◆
Burgess originally sold the movie rights to (Mick Jagger) for $500 when he needed quick cash.
Jagger intended to make it with (The Rolling Stones ) as the droogs, but then re-sold the rights for a much larger amount. Ken Russell (best known for directing the 1969 Oscar winning film Women in Love)
was then nominated to direct because of his flamboyant controversial style, and obsession with sexuality. Ken was going to cast Oliver Reed (best known as (Proximo in Gladiator) as Alex◆Stanley Kubrick ultimately ended up being the director. Anthony Burgess initially distrusted Kubrick as a director, but was happy with the results. He felt the film later made the book (one of his least favorite books he had written) overshadow his other work◆Tim Curry and Jeremy Irons both turned down the role of Alex◆ Kubrick once said "If Malcolm McDowell hadn't been available I probably wouldn't have made the film. Kubrick had his assistant destroy all unused footage◆
Kubrick's first cut (before hiring several assistant editors) ran almost four hours◆When (Malcom McDowell) met (Gene Kelly) at a party several years later, Gene turned and walked away in disgust. Kelly was deeply upset about the way his signature from (Singin' in the Rain) had been portrayed in A Clockwork Orange◆ The snake (Basil) was introduced into the film by Kubrick when he found out McDowell had a fear of reptiles◆
7mon
  •   filmtrivia Before filming the scene where he had to carry Mr. Alexander's wheelchair up the stairs, professional bodybuilder David Prowse (Julian) went up to Kubrick and asked if he could make sure that he got the scene in as few takes as possible, saying, (You're not exactly known as 'one-take-Kubrick', are you?). The scene was filmed in only three takes and Prowse was near exhaustion after. By contrast, the final scene in the film was done after 74 takes◆ Director of photography John Alcott lit most of the film using only natural light◆In the scene after Alex talks with the priest about Ludovico therapy, we see the prisoners marching in a circle around the exercise yard, recreating an 1890 painting by Vincent van Gogh, "Prisoners Exercising (after Gustave Doré)"◆ In the police station scene when Mr Deltoid (Aubrey Morris) spits in Alex's face, it is actually Steven Berkoff doing the spitting. After several takes, Morris complained to Stanley Kubrick that he had run out of saliva, and Berkoff volunteered his services until Kubrick's cameras captured the perfect 'spit-shot'◆Alexander, Peter, and Dimitri (which can be shortened to Dim) were common names of Russian kings and princes of the Empire of the Tsars◆
    Kubrick said in an interview that he considered the Prison Chaplain (Godfrey Quigley) to be the most sympathetic and morally admirable character in the film. The first line of the novel is "What's it going to be then, eh?" Prison Chaplain Godfrey Quigley is introduced with the line "What's it going to be, eh?"◆
    The film prominently features a sculpture by Dutch artist Herman Makkink (the phallic-shaped "Rocking Machine") and nine paintings and a sculpture (called "Christ Unlimited") by his brother Cornelis Makkink, all of which had been featured in the film (Tinto BrassDropout) a year before◆
    Kubrick maintained the tradition of putting the words "The End" in the end credits of all his movies, long after the industry had abandoned it◆ 7mon

filmtrivia This was the feature film debut for both Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix◆As the boys look through the junkyard for the pieces for their ship, Rosebud (the sled from the 1941 film Citizen Kane can be seen sitting at the top of a pile◆ During the children's flight over the circuit board at the end of the film, some of the camera angles and moves are meant to mimic the flight to Neverland from 1953's Peter Pan◆ Inside Wolfgang's basement, the toy monkey from the 1977 movie (Close Encounters of the Third Kind) can be seen◆When the helicopter pilot looks at the newspaper, one of the headlines says (Kingston Falls Riot Still Unexplained) Kingston Falls was the town where the events in Gremlins (also directed by Joe Dante), took place◆Amanda Peterson (who played Lori Swenson) is best known as Cindy
Mancini in the 1987 cult classic Can't Buy Me Love. She quit acting after 1995◆ One of the movies that Ben watches is 1995's (This Island Earth). In that movie and this one, the character builds a device with help from an alien so that they may meet◆
Wolfgang's "talking" rat is named Heinlein, after science fiction author Robert A. Heinlein, who wrote many stories about kids experimenting with spaceflight◆
Sean Astin turned down an opportunity to read for one of the three boys in Explorers, because he didn't want to lose the chance to be in THE GOONIES◆Eric Luke, who wrote the screenplay for this movie, was given a small walk-on part playing the role of Darren Woods' schoolteacher◆

  •   filmtrivia Director Joe Dante said the studio changed hands in the middle of production, and they decided they needed the movie much quicker than he expected. The production was hurried, the paint on the sets was literally wet and when the kids stepped into the spaceship they sunk into cement because it wasn't dry.
    The film was never finished, and was released as a work in progress when the studio decided to move up the release date by a month and release the film as it was. There was about an hour and a half worth of footage that was left on the cutting room floor. Dante said there was a lot of spiritual kind of stuff in the movie that didn't make it in at all. There was a theory that was around at the time about the world mind and it was a concept he thought was interesting. He started to get into it and there was no way to make any sense out of it, so he just dumped all that due to the studio. Sequences had to be re-dubbed, including one near the end where the boys are under a tree, to give the film a sense of closure. The boy of the young couple in the drive-in scene where he calls the special effects "fake" is supposed to be Ben's (Ethan Hawke) brother. There was a whole family sub-plot that is completely missing. Charlie Drake (Dick Miller) was also supposed to return in the third act◆ Joe Dante has maintained that although he is appreciative of the warm reception the film has earned over the years- the movie you'll see is not the movie he wanted to made. It's the movie he got to make up to a certain point and then had to stop. He said It's hard to look at the film because it's not the film he had in mind◆ The missing and cut scenes are presumably lost, as Dante tried searching for them in recent years for a possible director's cut◆ A novelization of the film was written by George Gipe and came out the same year as the film. 7mon
  •   filmtrivia The sound effects from the movie at the drive-in were taken directly from the original 1982 Atari 2600 video game Yars' Revenge◆River Phoenix, who had grown up in communes in South America, was somewhat unfamiliar with popular culture and slang words. During rehearsals it became a running joke when he would attempt scripted well-known words and phrases and usually pronounce them incorrectly◆
    When Robert Picardo was in full makeup and costume as Wak, his mouth was the only part of him not completely covered (though his mouth was made up to blend in with Wak's face). Picardo said the alien makeup was the most uncomfortable he has ever worn. The (Wak) makeup was like having a typewriter balanced on his head and the father was like balancing a TV. While the crew where enjoying lunch he would have to sit there and take the pain which drew him to tears and actually caused open lesions on his head. Although Picardo received the actor credit for the father alien, his voice was actually provided by Frank Welker. Robert Picardo also played (Meg Mucklebones) in Ridley Scott's film Legend◆ Cherie Currie (lead vocalist of the female rock group The Runaways) was considered for a part but, in her autobiography it said she was battling drug addiction and couldn't even make it to a meeting◆This was the first film that the American motion picture visual effects company (Industrial Light and Magic) actually co-produced with a major studio. Some of ILM's milestones are (First completely computer-generated character, the "stained glass man" in Young Sherlock Holmes), (First morphing sequence, in Willow), (Integrating 2D animated characters with live-action footage in Who Framed Roger Rabbit), First computer-generated 3D character, the pseudopod in The Abyss), (First partially computer-generated main character, the T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day), (First time the texture of human skin was computer generated, in Death Becomes Her), (First time digital technology used to create a complete and detailed living creature, the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, which earned ILM its thirteenth Oscar)◆ 7mon

filmtrivia While it is not mentioned in the film, Parry (Robin Williams) is short for Parsifal, the "pure fool" and legendary knight of the Holy Grail. Parry brings redemption to Jack Lucas (Jeff Bridges) just like, Parsifal brings redemption to the Fisher King Amfortas. Also, like Parsifal, Parry does battle with a Red Knight. Parry experiences a cosmic awakening after kissing Lydia, just like Parsifal experiences a cosmic awakening after kissing the beautiful Kundry◆ The girl that Jack says might be able to help Parry find the Holy Grail is named Lydia Sinclair. One of the legends about the grail is that it is buried under Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland which was built by the Sinclair clan. The name Sinclair comes back in several grail myths◆ Ellen Barkin was considered for the role of Anne but it went to
(Mercedes Ruehl) who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal◆When she was in college, Mercedes Ruehl (who plays Anne) had done a thesis about T.S. Eliot's poem (The Wasteland) in which the Fisher King features. When she received a script entitled (The Fisher King) she knew that this was the right project for her◆Bruce Willis auditioned for a role of Jack Lucas but lost to (Jeff Bridges)◆
Tom Waits makes a cameo as the beggar in the wheelchair at the train station◆When Robin Williams tells the story of the fisher king, he says, (I think I heard it at a lecture once... I don't know... a professor... at Hunter)●Before becoming homeless his character (Parry) was a professor of medieval history at Hunter College◆ The positioning of Jack Lucas with the homeless cabaret singer in his arms at the hospital echoes the positions of Mary and Christ in Michelangelo Buonarotti's Pieta at the Vatican◆
7mon
  •   filmtrivia Terry Gilliam said he wanted to direct this film because he was tired of doing big budget special effects films such as his previous film (The Adventures of Baron Munchausen)◆ This was the first film Gilliam directed in which he was not involved in writing the screenplay, as well as Gilliam's first film not to feature any other members of Monty Python. Fisher King is Gilliam's second film involving the Holy Grail, the first being Monty Python and the Holy Grail◆ Gilliam came up with the scene where Robin Williams and Amanda Plummer meet during a huge waltz in the middle of Grand Central Terminal, because he felt the original scene of a large group of people in a crowded subway listen to a homeless woman sing with a beautiful voice wasn't working. For the "waltzing commuter" scene in Grand Central station, the main hall of the terminal was shut down for the shoot from 8pm until the first commuter trains arrived at 5:30 am the next morning. Lighting effects outside of the large terminal windows made it seem like it was 5:00pm the entire night, and over 400 extras waltzed around the mirror-ball topped Information Booth again and again throughout the night. Now, on New Year's, an orchestra plays there and people waltz for real◆James Cameron was almost chosen to direct but was already working on Terminator 2◆
    The front window of the video store features a poster of the films (The Adventures of Baron Munchausen) and (Brazil) both films were directed by Terry Gilliam also◆ 7mon
  •   filmtrivia The Red Knight armor weighed between 125-150 pounds and was entirely self-contained. It was padded to protect stuntman Chris Howell in the event of a fall, and could have ice packs placed inside to keep Chris cool. Fire and smoke effects were controlled by Chris via buttons on the knight's lance. Propane tanks fueling the helmet's fire bursts were hidden in the horse's saddle, along with oxygen tanks for Chris' s breathing apparatus (hidden in the helmet along with a two-way radio)◆ Besides his connection to the medieval legend of the Fisher King, the Red Knight as he is depicted in the movie combines both the fire from the murderer's shotgun and the immediate splattering of the face of Parry's wife. Both images being so traumatic that it is implied his subconscious converts them into the fire and splattered-red configuration of the Red Knight's armor◆ Two Percheron circus horses named (Lightning and Goliath) performed as the Red Knight's mount. One was used for galloping, and the other for rearing◆ The costume designer's original concept for the Red Knight was that the suit of armor would be made from found objects such as car parts and industrial waste, but Terry Gilliam wanted something more accurately medieval◆Jack Lucas (Jeff Bridges) is a cynical arrogant radio host. Howard Stern was asked for tapes of his radio show. Stern refused and instead asked to be a consultant since they were modeling the character after him. The studio did not want to pay Stern, so they declined and in return Stern told them he wasn't interested in giving them his tapes◆ 7mon

moviesdidyouknow Did You Know... Brad Pitt, who was a big fan of "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," approached director Guy Ritchie and asked for a role in the film "Snatch." When Ritchie found Pitt couldn't master a London accent, he gave him the role of Mickey the Gypsy. Although reluctant to play a boxer after his similar role in "Fight Club," Brad accepted anyway because he wanted to work with Guy Ritchie that badly. #comedy #crime #bradpitt #guyritchie #entertainment #movies #MoviesDidYouKnow #motionpicture 5h
