Perhaps, but in fairness to Sophia Coppola and her father, the actress who was meant to play the role of Mary Corleone dropped out and Sophia stepped in as a favour to help out. Besides, all three films in the series felt to me like they were more of a product of the Coppola family than of just one member. In any case, I've never had a problem with her in the role and I don't understand all the criticism of her, but I wish I'd never listened to the commentary soundtrack.The Godfather III springs to mind.....
and of course, Nicholas Cage is FF Coppola's nephew too.
To some extent, but I also know that the reason he changed his last name to Cage was so that producers wouldn't immediately cast him on his uncle's name. He wanted to make it on his own merit. Which is commendable in an industry where you can have a career immediately just because you're from a famous family.Just wondering - despite liking him as an off the wall actor - if his ascent to fame and a career in Hollywood was another example of the influence of nepotism?
Interesting, thanks - I've never seen the comics but now (I mean NOW about ten minutes since I finished watching the video, which was on my doormat when I came home from work) I think I'm in love with Deadpool, so if the comics are even better,, you've given me a quest and a challenge - Accepted!Deadpool, I like the comic, didn't really like the movie.
I am a fan of CINEMA SINS, HONEST TRAILERS and HISHE - HOW IT SHOULD HAVE ENDED. They're all available to view on YouTube.Discovering these mini-gems about a year ago has given me so many giggles and saved me significant dosh at the box office - given that I love what they do (however wickedly) to films I know and cherish, I tend to take their opinions on board about things of which I am essentially clueless.
What do other people think?
Here's a clincher - I practically laid an egg laughing at their Deadpool offering (having pretty much come to the Marvel-lous conclusion that if Sirs Ian and Patrick weren't playing, then neither was I) - so I've ordered the DVD and it might even turn up tomorrow!
So to recap - Honest Trailers, friend or foe?
And Deadpool - what do other people think?
Thanks for the encouragement - err, I'm just back from laptop-free Easter break, so a bit rusty, but I I can't for the life of me figure out what it is you are recommending I do here, but it sounds a bit too strenuous for one quite so full of Hot Cross Buns, and possibly illegal in Greater London. Can you de-mystify me with a bigger clue, please?go hit up your LCS
Thanks! Once you spell it out it makes complete sense. Not quite as dangerous to my bank account as proper old-school 2nd hand bookshops, but yes - I think they all use a subliminal signal on the "never leave us, keep buying lovely stuff" frequency.Many apologies. LCS is internet slang for Local Comic Store. Comic book shops are my Kryptonite. Those, and cheesecake.
As a collector, I can say that I've broken the bank in both places. I have been known to drop a hundred dollars or so by haunting the back issues boxes.Not quite as dangerous to my bank account as proper old-school 2nd hand bookshops, but yes - I think they all use a subliminal signal on the "never leave us, keep buying lovely stuff" frequency.
