Al Pacino and Gene Hackman both prepared for the film that Hackman referred to as "MIDNIGHT COWBOY meets OF MICE AND MEN" by dressing in cast-off clothes and bumming around San Francisco asking for change. SCARECROW shows in 35mm 8/3 with director Jerry Schatzberg in person. #alpacino #genehackman #jerryschatzberg

Some cards when you see them, you just don't hesitate. For me, this one, was absolutely a no brainer. "Hoosiers" was a movie I loved so much and Gene Hackman a favorite actor. This card, in the 1987 Baseball design from Topps Silver Packs, is just a huge pickup for me personally and I'm beyond excited to say "Incoming!!" #Hoosiers #GeneHackman #iknowahometownrefereewhenIseeone #picketfence

The French Connection (1971) Directed by William Friedkin.
Gene Hackman as Jimmy 'Popeye' Doyle.
Al Copeland named his restaurant chain, Popeye's Mighty Good Fried Chicken, after Popeye Doyle, Gene Hackman's character in the film The French Connection (1971). The chain that grew from the one restaurant became Popeye's Famous Fried Chicken

Today marks 30 years since the release of Superman IV The Quest For Peace. Now as most Reeve fans know, this was not the best of all four films and Richard Donner's direction will always be the best of the series. However it was this film that lead me to fall in love with Superman (and later Supergirl) when I was just 3 years old. Even though the script and special effects were poor, Christopher's performance still held true to Superman. He deserved better than what Cannon delivered on this film and it's a shame it did not receive better care or attention to detail - but it will always be the beginning of my journey and lead me to someone who is still one of my greatest idols of all time. A man of integrity, genuinely cared for the people and gave hope to many long after he hung up the boots..and those boots were what all Superman's to follow have struggled to fill and every man could strive to be. ❤️💙💛. #supermaniv #supermanivquestforpeace #supermanivthequestforpeace #nuclearman #superman #christopherreeve #cannonfilms #dccomics #dc #dcuniverse #clarkkent #genehackman #justiceleague #manofsteel #margotkidder #henrycavill #comiccon #comics #80sfilms

I'm not the hugest fan of the movie but it still didn't stop me geeking out over being here. Was very cool to visit the gym used in Hoosiers #knightstown #hoosiergym #genehackman #80smovienerd #kiwiontour #kickinbackwithkali #thesagacontinues

That's an easy one. My favorite movie quote always has been and always will be, "We all have our faults. Mine's in California." #favorite #moviequotes #superman #1978 #genehackman #lexluthor

The 93rd film on the list is one of the first hard edge action movies and possibly the greatest cop film of all time. "The French Connection" propelled Gene Hackman into super stardom in his oscar winning role as Jimmy Doyle the loudmouth, hard living police officer that jump started the modern cop role, but "The French Connection" will be most remembered for its electrifying chase above, below and through the streets of New York City. Where does it rank on your list? Do you think it deserves the 93rd spot on this one? Also, are there any other cop movies which you think should be on his list?

The Poseidon Adventure (1972)🌊🚢
-------------------------
The story takes place on the SS Poseidon, an aged luxury liner on her final voyage from New York City to Athens before being sent to the scrapyard. On New Year's Eve, she is overturned by a rogue wave. Passengers and crew are trapped inside, and a rebellious preacher played by the great Gene Hackman, attempts to lead a small group of survivors to safety. A star-studded cast and plenty of claustrophobic action. Although panned by some, the film is miles ahead of the shabby, 2006 remake. #theposeidonadventure #movies #film #the70s #1972 #disasterfilms #shipwreck #lostatsea #movies #classicfilm #genehackman #ernestborgnine #jackalbertson #shelleywinters #redbuttons #roddymcdowall #camerachris #instagram #movietrailers #leslienielsen #deepimpact #2012 #contagion #twister #dantespeak #thetoweringinferno #alive #daylight

(sighs) A month after the 20th anniversary to the hilariously disasterous fourth installment of the original Batman film series, today marks the 30th anniversary of the hilariously disasterous fourth installment of the original Superman series. Superman IV: The Quest For Peace marks Christopher Reeve's fourth and final turn as the Man of Steel who rids the world of it's nuclear weapons by throwing them into the sun, only for archnemisis Lex Luthor to take advantage of this by stealing a strand of Superman's hair (which was holding a 10,000 weight and Luthor managed to cut it with regular pliers), combined with a fetus (I think?) and had whatever he created hurled into the sun, resulting in the birth of a powerful, George Michael-haired new enemy called Nuclear Man who is born with black and yellow spandex and silver claws that leaves a poisonous scratch. Oh, and his weakness is the shade. Goddamn this movie was some bullshit, and part of this was because the film was produced by Cannon Films which is known for their schlocky, low budget features and so many production problems occurred (originally there was another Nuclear Man). It's anti-nuclear weapon plot was preachy, it's main antagonist was ludicrous as was the plot points, special effects (it reuses the same badly composited footage of Superman flying towards the screen among other shots of people flying around), awful editing, and Superman possessing so many random new powers like rebuilding a wall with laser vision. Did I mention that Nuclear Man kidnaps a girl and takes her into space?! And survives?! It's sad this series that got off to a hopeful start with the 1978 classic ended as the complete incoherent train wreck it is and sunk the already plummeting Cannon Films. I can't decide which was worst: this or Batman & Robin.

The impressively bad and cheap looking Superman IV: The Quest For Peace was released on this day in 1987.
Thanks Cannon Films!

July 24th, 1987 - I was an 8-year old kid, eagerly awaiting to watch the 4th Superman movie. After I left the theater, I said.. "What happened?!? That movie was so bad!" It was 30-years ago today that "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace" was released. It was both a critical & commercial failure; with many reviewers criticizing the cheap special effects, inconsistencies, lack of originality, and plot holes. It's one of the worst films ever made. "The Quest for Peace" fared the worst at the box office compared to the other 3 Superman films, and the series went dormant for the following 19-years. Christopher Reeve regretted his decision to be involved in the film by saying.. "Superman IV was a catastrophe from start to finish. That failure was a huge blow to my career." Jon Cryer, who played Lex Luthor's nephew (Lenny), said that Christopher Reeve had taken him aside just before the release and told him that the movie was going to be "terrible". It's one of those films that is so bad.., it's laughable! I was 8-years old, and I was complaining on how the character (Lacy Warfield) didn't burn up in the atmosphere when Nuclear Man kidnapped her and flew her away from Earth, and how she was breathing quite comfortably in outer space.

Maybe I'm the only person in the world who cried at the end of The Royal Tennebaums. Probably not.
On the grave stone of O'Reilly Tenebaum it says: "Died Tragically Rescuing His Family From The Wrecking Of A Destroyed Sinking Battleship". Truth.
The movie portrays family who's completely disintegrated. Non existent relationships, sadness, loss, regret all dressed up in comedy. Life.
I love the fact how the movie dares to claim that we are, we do remain kids to some extend, always.
I'm allergic to few words and phrases like: appropriate, age appropriate and fabulous advices some people give like "Behave like an adult." I'm not exactly sure what they mean and I much rather exist in Wes Anderson's world. As far as I am aware, we do live once, so let's do it on our own terms rather than on some collective boring idea.
There's no expiration date to unfulfilled childhood need and there's no expiration date to making it all right, well, at least some of it. It's funny cause the movie shows that truth can set you free, but also that to play make-believe, not obeying rules of common sense, making up stories that we can ride on like waves during some grey days can exist next to truth cause they both are the same thing really as the sentence on O'Reilly's grave is both true and not. #TheRoyalTenebaums #WesAnderson #genehackman #owenwilson #gwynethpaltrow #angelicahouston #movies #feelings #review #love #smoking #images #actress #iwrite #writing #art #talent #cast #filmy #itgirl #filmy #lukewilson #benstiller #create #polskadziewczyna #aktorka #dreamer #magical #readme #poetry #rebel

No. 45: "CHARLES MALIK WHITFIELD"
Charles Malik Whitfield (@malikwhitfield) is a man that really needs no introduction. He's portrayed icons like #OtisWilliams of #TheTemptations and acted opposite legends like #GeneHackman in Behind Enemy Lines. He's risen through the ranks and starred in hit franchises like #NCIS, #AmericanHorrorStory and the recent network smash, @empirefox . For all his success, he still marvels that he gets to work with innovators like Tasha Smith (@tasha4realsmith) and that he's presently working alongside industry titan @TylerPerry for @oprah's @owntv show, "If Loving You Is Wrong."
----
But what was great about our conversation is that Malik has an abiding #empathy and connection to the #underdog, those striving hard to make it. He remembers when he was in that position and he opens up to us in great detail about those tough days at the dawn of his stellar career. His heart is full of encouragement, wisdom and kindness. He believes in the success of others and you will hear him uplift his friends mightily while downplayng his own accomplishments. This was my second time speaking with Malik, this veritable #FutureLegend, and he's still grounded, still maintains the outlook that he's just a kid from the #Bronx doing his best to make it for himself as well as with a strong emphasis on helping others along in the process. Salute.

Mississippi Burning (1988), two F.B.I agents investigate the disappearance of some civil activists in Mississippi. Gene Hackman and William Dafoe play partners in crime with widly different styles but it is executed well in the film making their relationship alot more special and unique. Alan Parker builds this film with suspense which works out well, i never wanted to leave for something because i didnt want to lose an important scene. Gene Hackman has to be one of the greatest badasses in film history, honestly he really is the definition of a macho man that doesnt come off in a bad way. His performance is electrifying and so is William Dafoe's. He was very young in this film compared to his co-star Gene, his character was also very tough but also wasn't because he's the kind of person that is determined to get to the goal in the right way but if needed to bend the rules alittle bit he would. Every performance including Michael Rooker's racist character is fantastic and incredible making me not want to take my eyes off the screen. Definitely represents today's society maybe not far as to that extent but still on a spectrum which is very sad to experience. Rate: 8.3/10 #mississippiburning #genehackman #williamdafoe #racismneedstobestopped #lovewillconquertheworld #racism #film #mystery #genehackmanisabadass
