Print found of a very important lost film -- Turkish Star Wars!

Richard Norton, the Kahn's minister / heavy from Gymkata, was the fight choreographer for Suicide Squad. I can only hope Killer Croc finds a pommel horse in the middle of Gotham City and starts his floor routine.

For a fighter with a long powerful tail, a pommel horse could be quite an advantage. I hope the movie doesn't neglect this facet of crocodilian combat.

Wait, does Killer Croc have a tail?

Nope. But supposedly we get to see him do a death roll at some point, which probably means someone's getting dragged into a body of water by him over the course of the film.

Personally, I'm hoping we see him throw a rock.

This very second I am watching the James Bond film You Only Live Twice and as the opening credits roll I just caught something I hadn't before:

"Screenplay by Roald Dahl"

I suppose his original title was 'James and the Giant Peach?'

According to Google he also wrote the screenplays for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, his own Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and one I'd never heard of called The Night Digger. But YOLT seems so far out of his wheelhouse that I'm amazed he got the chance.

His script for Willy Wonka was rejected for making every character into an fuzzyduckling. Even Charlie. And Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was also an Ian Fleming novel. Apparently the two were friends.

I was listening to the Slaughter Film Podcast and in their most recente episode, they reviewed a movie from this year made by the notorious Bill Zebub, who made Kill the Scream Queen. It's called Dickshark and the movie apparently runs 150 minutes, with a 200-minute extended version available as well. The reviewer said it was about an hour and fifty minutes of the director fondling naked women in slow motion while death metal songs played out from start to finish. There was only about 40 minutes of actual plot.

I've seen Kill The Scream Queen. It's one of the most revolting things I've ever seen, and I do some incredibly dark s***.

It's the only time I've ever wanted to douse myself in bleach after watching something.

Anything that man makes is a blight on humanity. Just to give you an idea, one of his other films is called Rape is a Circle.

I was thinking about how Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead is so much better than anything he's directed recently. Then 300 was on TV the other day, and I had the same thought. And a theory popped into my head.

So today I looked at his chronological list of major motion pictures to test my theory, and it ***almost*** works. That being, everything he directs is worse than the last thing he directed. For that to work, the following has to be true:

Dawn of the Dead (2004) is better than 300 (2006) is better than Watchmen (2009) is better than Owls of Gahoole (2010) is better than Sucker Punch (2011) is better than Man of Steel (2013) is better than BvS: Dawn of Justice (2016).

I don't think you can argue Sucker Punch is better than MoS or BvS. Maybe you can lump them all together.

Applying Rotten Tomatoes ratings give you this order:

Dawn of the Dead (75%) is better than Watchmen (65%) is better than 300 (60%) is better than Man of Steel (55%) is better than Owls of Gahoole (50%) is better than BvS: Dawn of Justice (27%) is better than Sucker Punch (23%).

I think a lot of critics would want a redo on MoS...

Shyamalan followed a similar curve, with even fewer deviations than Snyder, until his last couple of films started to climb back up again.

Saw the trailer tonight for the next Shyamalan film and it looks crazy and disturbing.
