The Only Yogi Bear Scene You Need to See

I won’t ever see Yogi Bear, under any circumstance, not even at the tearful insistence of my demanding niece. But, though I’ll never know for sure, I’d bet a lot of money that there isn’t a scene in the entire film which reaches the emotional heights of this “alternate” ending.

I love how conflicted Boo-Boo is. He really doesn’t want to hurt Yogi, but $5000 is a lot of cash.

Your Daily Bit of Back to the Future Trivia

Here’s something I didn’t know. Back to the Future started filming with Eric Stoltz in the role of Marty McFly. Michael J. Fox had always been the preferred choice, but was too busy with Family Ties when production started.

Robert Zemeckis eventually decided that Stoltz’s performance was good, but not light-hearted enough for the role. Re-shooting with Fox, whose schedule eventually eased up, added another $3 million to the budget. Here’s recently-released footage as Eric Stoltz in the classic role. Tough luck! I’m sure his career would’ve had a much different trajectory had he kept the part.

Chris Klein – Acting Legend

We just saw this incredible video of Chris Klein’s performance in the recent world-changing mega-smash Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li. Of course you’ve already seen the movie, probably two or three times, at least. But, because the man’s performance is so engaging, his embodiment of the character so total, I never quite realized what a tour de force his turn as Charlie Nash truly was, until I saw the video which stitches together all his dialog. Enjoy… and learn from the best.

Danny Trejo: The New King of Hollywood

Robert Rodriguez’s Mexican revenge flick Machete hacked George Clooney’s The American to pieces at the weekend box office… a feat which I can’t believe, and totally love.

Take that, Arizona! Hah, I’m sure that conservative airwaves will be full of hand-wringing about the changing face of the country, if more of us would rather see a Mexican hit man kill people than George Clooney in a movie called The American. (And they’re off!)

If you haven’t seen the hilarious Cinco de Mayo trailer for Machete where Rodriguez pretty much declares war on Arizona’s racist anti-immigration laws, it’s worth checking out, even though it’s pretty old.

Star Wars as a Silent Movie

Rudolf Valentino, Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Carrie Fisher?! Although missing the classic score and sound effects, such as Darth Vader’s breathing or the lightsaber’s hum, Star Wars is strangely compelling as a silent film. With dramatically costumed actors scurrying about futuristic sets, one could almost see the film as a precursor to Metropolis.

What other films do you think might benefit from the Silent Movie treatment? I’d love to see a horror flick like Wolf Creek… it would just make it more terrifying.
