It had a ridiculous plot of trucks getting a mind of their own and humans having to protect themselves in a diner from the killer trucks trying to break in.


King won a Razzie award for worst director and stated that the film is "a moron movie" and he never directed anything else besides this. However, he is said to be very appreciative for the movie's cult following.

Just wanted to share a quote from Stephen himself from the biography about his life Haunted Heart:

"The problem with that film is that I was coked out of my mind all through its production, and I really didn't know what I was doing."

Another quote:

"I wish someone had told me how little I knew and how grueling it was going to be. I didn't know how little I knew about the politics of filmmaking. People walk around the director with this 'don't wake the baby' attitude. Nobody wants to tell you this, that, or the other thing if it's bad news."

Movie Jeremy Irons on "Batman v Superman"

Jeremy Irons Calls Batman v Superman "Overstuffed"
by Nick Romano
5/29/16



Jeremy Irons isn’t apologizing for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In fact, he thinks the DC film deserved the heavy criticism it received. He played the loyal British butler, Alfred, and while the film was popular at the box office it got an absolute kicking from the critics.

Deservedly so. I mean it took £800 million, so the kicking didn’t matter but it was sort of overstuffed…,” he told The Daily Mail’s Event magazine. “It was very muddled. I think the next one will be simpler. The script is certainly a lot smaller, it’s more linear.





Irons will reprise his role for Justice League: Part One, scheduled for release on Nov. 17, 2017.

I’m tied into the Batman at the minute, which is nice because it’s a bit of income,” he said, adding, “Not that I need a bit of income, but it’s nice to keep ticking over.

Alec Baldwin revealed in his memoir, Nevertheless, that he really doesn't care for much of his own work.

The final ten minutes of 'The Edge' is the only piece of my own film work I can ever watch and enjoy. 'State and Main' is one of the few of my own movies that I can stand watching.

I'm always up for some good cheese, and I've certainly seen worse than Howling 2. But compared to the original, yeah, it wasn't great. It had inspired moments but the worst sin for a movie like this is just to be boring and it often was.

I've never been a fan of Howling II. Not even as a good cheesy horror flick. Howling III now that film I think is a cheese classic. Everything works for me in that. Of the 80's Howling sequels it seems to get the most hate, but I find it very rewatchable, heck, even more so than the original. I even prefer Bob McCarron's werewolf design over Bottin's.

The original Howling I do like, though it's far from my favorite Dante film, and me personally I rank it under An American Werewolf In London, Company Of Wolves, and Silver Bullet. The ending, with Dee Wallace turning into the goofy looking werewolf I just find laughable. She looks more like a Wookie, and doesn't even look like it was done by the same people that created the werewolves earlier in the film.

As a whole the Howling horror franchise is definitely one of the weakest of the more well known ones.

Carey Mulligan Says She "Didn't Love" her Performance in The Great Gatsby
by Devan Coggan
Sept. 5, 2017



Carey Mulligan may have beat out just about every young actress in Hollywood to land her role as Daisy Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, but now, she’s revealing that she’s not exactly a fan of her final performance.

I didn’t love my work in Gatsby,” Mulligan told Variety in a new interview. “I’m not sure if I slightly kind of lost my way because I was intimidated by the scale of it. I think I might have been overawed by my experience and intimidated by the level of performances around me.





Leonardo DiCaprio starred in the 2013 film as the titular Gatsby, with Tobey Maguire playing Nick Carraway. Luhrmann’s take on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s seminal novel was a blockbuster spectacle, earning $351 million worldwide on a budget of $105 million. Mulligan added that the film’s scale was part of what intimidated her.

It was how big it was and how visual it was,” she said. “I definitely felt there were fleeting moments where I really found the character and then I felt like I lost her a little bit. I’ve never been wholly thrilled about my work in it. …

I love the character so much and I spent so much time preparing. It might not have translated onto the screen. I think I let my own security get in my own way. In that respect, I wish I could do it again.

From IMDB, Petula Clark talks about her appearing in the 1954 mystery-comedy The Runaway Bus:

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's "Loose Ends" in September 2016, 'Petula Clark' (Lee Nicholls) recalled this as a "dreadful film", noting that the noxious artificial fog used in studio - to disguise the conspicuous lack of background scenery - made the cast fall ill.
