You know a movie is going to be bad if the words "Kick BUTT" are on the poster. Anybody who proves me wrong will get a cookie.

*no photoshopped versions of The Godfather or Breathless posters with "kick BUTT" added into it or anything like that either.*

I saw Dark Rising (parts of it, anyway) on SuperChannel in Canada last year. I found out later the chick was "Suki" on former Canadian video gaming show "Game Nation".

It took me a moment to realize that was Kurt Angle and not Toby Keith reprising his stance from the "Beer for My Horses" movie poster..

Oh Boy

Quote
A campy tongue-in-cheek slasher film created as tribute to our favorite B slasher films of the past... Brought to you by the award winning film company "Feathered Italian Films", The Legacy is one hell of a ride.

The film follows a group of young people on their camping vacation... Without warning their numbers start to fall as they are viciously hunted down by an unknown psycho... Are the legends true? Does the "Reaper" exist, or is the murderer much closer than they think?

Check out The Legacy featuring stars such as hardcore wrestling legend Al Snow, female wrestling superstar Sojo "Josie" Bolt, Women's Extreme tag team champions "Rockstar" Roni Jonah and Bobcat, Jim O'Rear (The Deepening), Daniel Emery Taylor (Return of The Swamp Thing), and five-time MMA cage fighting champion Dale Miller. Not to mention Jason Crowe (Dead Moon Rising), TJ Moreschi (Bottle Rockets), Nathan Day (Stash), and Kate Stanley (Hell-Ephone) Plus many many more!
The Legacy Trailer

Also, "River of Darkness" has wrapped, and End Game comes to DVD Dec. 1st.

Upon looking back over this thread, I'm mildly puzzled as to why The Princess Bride hasn't been named yet.  Even if half of Andre's dialogue probably needed subtitles, it was still a great part in a great movie.

There is nothing wrong at all with this movie. It might not be a 4 star film, but it's such a fun film.

Not a wrestler, but I came across this hilariously bad trailer for Stephan Bonnar's movie.

 ULTIMATE CHAMPION MOVIE TRAILER

I'm convinced he funded this movie himself, in some sort of attempt at fantasy role playing.

Bonus points for using the original Rey Misterio and hoping US fans don't notice.

I saw this at SunCoast last year and actually did wonder if it was Rey until I checked on the Internets. Still, the next time I'm there I'm buying this.

Also, The Princess Bride is an epic movie, one of my favorite movies ever.

Come to think of it, MMA fighters probably make worse movies than wrestlers. At least most wrestlers can act a bit because of the scripted nature of wrestling, a lot of fighters can't even manage that. See the films of Hector Echavarria who makes utterly appalling low- budget MMA themed movies (Never Back Down, Death calls, Confessions of a pit fighter) casts a bunch of MMA fighters (GSP, Rampage) and then places himself in the lead role (as an unstoppable ass-kicker who gets all the hot chicks naturally.)

Dixie Carter noted on her twitter that Kurt Angle has been taking horseback riding lessons in preparation for a new movie role.

The film is called Deadman's Gold from Lionsgate Home Video. Kurt will play a villain called Boone.The film stars Luke Perry who will also be directing, replacing Lou Diamond Phillips, as Phillips had a scheduing conflit with his Stargate show, plus Luke Goss (80s pop star) and America Oliva (Friday the 13th). Kurt got the role because he put himself on tape and sent it to the casting office.

You know your acting career is flopping when the highlight of your CV will be a Luke Perry directed movie.

I just remembered this movie Sting did back in the 90's called "The Real Reason Men Commit Crimes." I've never seen it, but IMDB says it's a Romantic Comedy. Anyone here seen it/aware of it?

Negatives: If those backstage segments didn't clue anyone in, Ted is a bad actor. Judging by the trailer, he's probably going to go through the entire film talking in that dull, monotone voice. And unlike Cena's movies, where they'll wisely surround him with better actors to deflect from his awfulness, the other actors look just as bad. The script looks utterly awful ("the goal is to save people, not kill them to win!") and the whole thing is a rather blatant Die Hard rip off (which wouldn't be so bad, except Die Hard's been ripped off many, many times before and at least those filmmakers had the imagination to set it on a boat or a bus or something.)

Positives:...um, the scenery looks very nice.

Let's figure out The Marine 3 for WWE Films. First, we need a developmental talent. Judging by the FCW roster, our best bet is this guy.



It's time to get serious to get The Marine franchise back to its roots. This one should be about vets and PTSD.



Also, it should be about America. And Americana. That's why WWE makes movies. To celebrate Americana.

And films them in Australia to save money.

I have an idea: make your own WWE movie!

X is a *insert manly occupation*. In fact, he's the toughest *insert manly occupation* around. And he loves America! Then one day, Y kidnaps someone close to X and X must break all the rules to get them back! In the process he jumps from *insert large amount* of explosions and pisses off numerous *insert random weakling authority figure* all to a soundtrack of *insert generic nu-metal band.*

I watched that Dark Rising with Christian the other night because it was available on Netflix Instant Streaming.  I enjoyed it in a cheesy B-movie kind of way.  The funny thing is Christian was probably the best actor in there.
