i'm always amazed when i see behind-the-scenes action on movies how much work is involved. with big budget films like batman
it makes sense, but more than that it's the smaller movies, or maybe the shittier movies. i was on a bus ride a few weeks ago where they showed undisputed III: redemption
followed by undisputed II: last man standing
. you might think that's a strange order to present the films, but if you had watched them you'd see it really makes no difference. they're both formulaic, badly scripted, brain-dead nonsense. as aziz ansari would say they're not really my cup of tea... mainly because i don't like huge pieces of shit in my tea. in fact i'm surprised to see they both have pretty high imdb ratings, i can only assume that they have a core following that like that kinda stuff. and no one else has heard of them. anyways, as terrible as those movies were, you can be sure that they had a lot of (probably talented) people behind-the-scenes trying to make it happen. a lot of hard work goes into sculpting and polishing a turd. i thought that when i saw these guys filming in cartagena
and saw them film one of the hanging military guys 'fake stabbing' the other military guy. i don't want to judge without watching the final cut, and as i've no idea the name of this film that's unlikely to ever happen, but i'm thinking it will be less batman and more undisputed.
