    Eh, that's not really a very impressive pedigree. At least two of those movies are not generally regarded as very good, and the other one was just a typical Harrison Ford flick. If that's what they're going for, then I guess he's the right man in the job, but I'm not really convinced he's got a good script in him.

    I enjoyed all of those films though I thought End of Days was limited with Arnold in the lead role the script was good. Hollowman's script was butched by the studio as well but still turned out to be entertaining but a bit too short.

    Well, we shall see. I guess the plus side is that it can't possibly be worse than that made-for-TV movie starring the Hasselhoff, right?

    I say they should go with the SGt.Fury and his Howling Commandos story instead and make a WWII epic

    Couldn't find a better place to put this, but I finally saw the Hasseloff version of Nick Fury last night. Wow. I was expecting bad, but...wow. The strange part was that Hasselhoff wasn't even the worst thing in the film, which I was expecting. He was cheesy and lame, sure, but anything he did in that movie looked like Shakespearean finesse in comparison with Sandra Hess, who played the film's villain. Not only did she have the WORST German accent I have ever heard in my entire life (which is sad, since she was born in Switzerland and should have had a relatively easy time with that particular accent), but she overacted so BADLY through the entire film that I just laughed my ass off every time she popped up on screen. She didn't even have to open her mouth for it to be bad.

    However, as crappy as the acting (and effects for that matter) all were, what made this film so terrible was David Goyer's script and dialogue. Not that you'll ever find me defending Hasselhoff or Hess' abilities, but they were given some of the absolute worst lines to utter that I think I have ever seen in any film, anywhere. The plot holes in the script were so many that it's easier to just say that there were a couple of things in the movie that were coherent and the rest was utter trash (multi-ethnic neo-Nazi's? :confused: ). It was entertaining for all the wrong reasons, though, and if you get a chance to see it it's probably worth seeing if there's absolutely nothing else on TV (for GOD's sake don't RENT this thing!) and you're either full of so many muscle relaxers that you have no functioning motor skills and can't move to work the remote control or you're just full of morbid curiosity like I am.

    Wow, did they totally **** up the SHIELD name or what? It hasnt been "Supreme Headquarters International Espionage Law-enforcement Division" for decades. It goes by Strategic Hazard Intervention, Espionage and Logistics Directorate now.

    he also wrote the screenplay for the next big Harrison Ford movie, which sounds more interesting than anything he's done in a while, Manhunt. It's about the federal forces who tracked down John Wilkes Booth and the others responsible for the Lincoln assassination.
