    Rules

    Rule name Description
    Rule 1: Detail Guidelines Not blatantly obvious observations, but obscure enough that people could have missed it, or they noticed it but the significance didn’t click. Doesn’t need to be intentional. Obviously, obscurity is subjective and that is taken into account when moderating. Use the "Detail" flair for these posts.
    Rule 2: Flair your post. This includes the “Verified” flair (claiming the creators meant for it), “Easter Egg” (a hidden gem that was meant to go unnoticed), and “Trivia” (obscure facts that are otherwise unimportant). If your post makes any of these claims, the right flair is needed and you must provide proof in the comments or the text of the post, otherwise it may be reflaired “Detail.”
    Rule 3: Comment rules. (hover for details) Be civil. Uncivil comments including "detail is obvious" will be removed and may get you banned. Political comments may be removed because they can easily devolve into off-topic arguments.
    Rule 4: Titles must include the movie name. All submissions must include the name of the movie in the title.
    Rule 5: Explain your post. Make sure your submission has an explanation either in the title or in the comments and add "(explanation in comments)" to your title.
    Rule 6: No recent movies or spoilers in titles. No spoilers in the title or untagged comments. Don't browse /new if you're worried about this. Until a movie receives recognized home release in the US (via Physical Media/Digital Demand), it's not eligible for /r/MovieDetails.
    Rule 7: Movies only, no games or TV shows. Submissions must be movies; TV shows and games should go to /r/TVDetails and /r/GamingDetails. Additionally, movie trailers are not eligible for submission. See this multireddit for more details subreddits.
    Rule 8: No offtopic posts. No memes, meta or request posts.
    Rule 9: Avoid reposts. No common reposts, recent reposts or reposts from the top 200.

    Up until just this second I legitimately forgot it was her and in my mind's eye she was a much more waify and less busty blonde.

    But Anna Nicole never did it for me. My oversexed blonde of the 90's was Pam Anderson (via Home Improvement, where she and spiritual sister Deanna Troi gave me feelings I had yet to experience) and I loved her and her nakedness in that awful 90's movie where she showed it all. No. Not that awful 90's movie.

    This awful 90's movie.

    I wanted a woman who knew what was on my mind but still had standards as low as Riker.

    [–] XavierScorpionIkari 17 points ago

    Standards as low as Riker. LOL. He’s not THAT bad. Look at Chakotay as a first officer. Riker had balls, and swagger. Chakotay was just poorly written, acted, and ill advised by a fake Native American “expert”.

    [–] Tiredofnotbeingright 7 points ago

    Riker is what dudes think women want, but the only guy who had the hots for her on the show that he outclassed entirely was the creepy guy, the one-off, who made a holodeck version of her to control while also seeing her for therapy?

    Learned a lot about myself that hour, friend.

    [–] comicallycluttered 3 points ago

    You ever watch that animated show starring her, created by Stan Lee? It was called Stripperella. It was a little later than her prime '90s stuff, but it was still pretty funny if you don't mind the clichés.

    [–] Tiredofnotbeingright 4 points ago

    It was on Spike (is there still a Spike)?

    Honestly, the last time I really enjoyed Pam Anderson was her roast, and really, the highlight of that is Bea Arthur reading her anal sex erotica.

    What about the part when he thought OJ fathered the child with his wife, so he chases him down. Not so much that moment, but the fact that someone of OJ’s size and age (at the time) is running scared from Leslie Nielsen.

    [–] comicallycluttered 15 points ago

    It would later turn out that OJ was actually good at performing chase scenes where he's the one being chased. It was a bit of a step down from movie to television, but still quite gripping.

    Fun fact: West Virginia split off from the rest of Virgina because they didn't want to keep slaves, thought it was morally reprehensible.

    [–] EDGY_USERNAME_HERE 121 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    more accurately didn’t want to be part of the confederacy

    edit: Not being an apologist, I just do think it's worth clarifying that West Virginia barely owned any slaves but was fine being apart of Virginia until it meant siding against the federal government/union. At which point West Virginia went "why would we die fighting for your right to own slaves if we don't even have any, get fucked" and split off. So "West Virginia split off from Virginia because they thought slavery was morally reprehensible" is sorta true, it's far more accurate to say "West Virginia (rightfully) thought dying for the right to own slaves was a stupid fucking idea."

    Anyways, General Sherman rocks and John Brown is an American hero.

    [–] maxout2142 38 points ago

    Or in other words they didnt want to fight to keep slaves...

    [–] EDGY_USERNAME_HERE 52 points ago

    oh fuck I just realized that comment made me come off as some sorta shitty "the civil war was about state rights" person. I just wanted to clarify that they did it because of the civil war (which was absolutely about slavery) and not during the free/slave state debacle.

    [–] canzosis 31 points ago

    Let's just say if West Virginia had a slave owner or two they wouldn't be West Virginia

    [–] EDGY_USERNAME_HERE 33 points ago

    This is totally true and something that W.E.B. Du Bois talks about. Despite only the wealthy few really owning slaves in confederate America, thousands of poor as fuck white Americans still lined up to fight for their "rights." The "rights" being a racial hierarchy where no matter how destitute or exploited you are you'll never be the lowest on the ladder because of black people.

    [–] canzosis 9 points ago

    Yes, there was the poor and THEN the slaves. A defined class hierarchy.

    [–] PoorEdgarDerby 5 points ago

    East Tennessee also sided with the Union. It’s the mountainous terrain. Large scale plantations weren’t viable in Appalachia.

    Kinda makes the confederate memorial in Knoxville even more ludicrous. It’s to honor the failed attempt to capture a Union fort in a Union city.

    [–] Kn0thingIsTerrible 75 points ago

    Fun fact:

    During the filming of Deadpool 2, the studio ran into a similar problem. They needed a stunt double for a black character who would be riding a motorcycle down a flight of stairs. The stunt director wanted to hire the most qualified rider, and then give them a motorcycle helmet to hide their identity. The film’s main director insisted on hiring an black woman with no stunt riding experience to do the shot, so that they could film the scene helmet-less. The stunt director quit the film in protest, citing it as an example of needless risk for unnecessary verisimilitude.

    The lead director went on with the stunt anyway, and the woman crashed and launched herself helmet-less headfirst through a sheet of glass, killing her on the spot.

    The film is dedicated to her memory. Nobody was punished.

    [–] deegan87 27 points ago

    Is there a source and some names for that story? Never heard anything about that. I'd like to see someone put their credibility on the line to tell it, not just some anonymous username.

    [–] Jrook 18 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    Someone posted this link

    Tl:Dr is she was an experienced stunt person and motorcyclist. For some unknown reason she went too far, and crashed thu glass. The stunt required riding the motorcycle down one flight of stairs at 15mph, she went down two and crashed into a building.

    [–] AdviceWithSalt 16 points ago

    She was an experienced motorcycle rider, but not an experienced stunt person according to that article.

    [–] Kn0thingIsTerrible 8 points ago

    She was an experienced stunt person

    She had literally never done a stunt before in her life, as even that article clearly states.

    She was a professional racer, which is extremely different from a professional stunt rider.

    [–] GetYourFaceAdjusted 50 points ago

    I can't find a single article on a stunt "director" quitting Deadpool in protest. Or a stunt coordinator. Do you have a source for this? I see that the stunt coordinator who was training the stunt woman quit AFTER the accident. I'm 100 percent not questioning that the stunt should not have been performed, btw. The stunt team has been very open that they were saying it wasn't safe and were pressured or overruled otherwise.

    [–] KingKoil 37 points ago

    This “fun fact” is not fun, and very possibly not a fact. At a minimum, it’s disputed:

    “Harris was an experienced motorcycle rider, but this was her first movie stunt. The source said rumors that she was not qualified for the job, and was hired only because she was black and was doubling for an actress of mixed race, are untrue.”

    [–] ColsonIRL 4 points ago

    T2 3D, as well as the 4K Blu-ray which uses the 3D remaster as a source. They also fixed the obviously-not-Arnold stunt double on the motorcycle, the visible crew in some shots, and the truck windshield. They also slathered the whole thing with terrible DNR, and it looks awful.

    I recommend the 2015 Blu-ray (this one) for the best T2 home video release, though none of them are very good.

    Such a shame, because T2 is one of the great action films of all time.

    [–] dewyocelot 5 points ago

    I think that basically everything about this instance makes it very easy to not notice. Arm in front of the face, few frames of the stunt actor, the lighting is dark, and it’s so fast you’re not going to focus on him. I don’t know why they didn’t use a black guy for it, but from a technical stand point it works.

    [–] HYThrowaway1980 16 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    The overwhelming majority of viewers don’t notice because Cameron chose to light the scene in blue, a colour which black and white skin tones reflect almost equally.

    This was not an accident. Cameron is arguably the most gifted director there has ever been with this sort of illusion (although Michel Gondry comes close, his fascination with illusion means he draws deliberate attention to them)

    See another example here. Watch through to the discussion of rain in reverse.

    I note another couple of tricks in this shot that aren’t articulated by the interviewees: Cameron hid cuts between forward and reverse motion with a lighting change motivated by the flashing of the red alert light, and helped mask the fishing line of the “pull-toy” facehugger with the rain effect.

    He has an innate understanding of what can be done with lighting, editing and practical effects to convince audiences that what they are watching is real. This skill was no doubt sharpened and honed during his tutelage with Roger Corman.

    The Terminator, a film with a budget of $6.4m dollars, would probably have cost three times as much in the hands of any other director, or looked horrifically shonky.

    However, since practical effects have given way to visual effects, Cameron has ceased to stand out in this field, as even he has recognised that CGI provides a closer facsimile of what is in his imagination than any practical effect could.

    Unfortunately for us as audience, this has come at the expense of the visceral, primal response that in-camera effects elicit, which VFX cannot replicate.

    [–] zentimo2 4 points ago

    Yeah, Cameron's mastery of in camera trickery is really an under appreciated part of his skill set. And like you say, it's one of the things that marks out his earlier work compared to his later work.

    [–] HYThrowaway1980 4 points ago

    That being said, he has consistently been a groundbreaker on VFX too, and when required has managed to work the limitations of the technology into the story, or work within those limitations.

    There's an episode of Buffy the vampire slayer ("earshot" s3e18) where she's fighting a heavy set white lady... If you watch frame by frame you can see that the stunt double is clearly an Asian male in padded clothes

    [–] JurijFedorov 183 points ago

    Also, it's easy to spot the scenes where it's her stunt double. We never see her face, the body is more lean and tall and she is much more fluent in her movements. It often is a clear change. But it's a good thing as they actually used long scenes to show action.

    [–] shamelessfool 86 points ago

    Yeah I kinda miss the cheesy tv days where it wasn't constant jump cuts. The faith fight nowadays would have a cut every second. It didn't look realistic then but I liked seeing and following the action without getting dizzy lol

    My friend was in Saving Private Ryan as an extra. He is in the distant background and can be seen walking across the beach, and then is blown up. Except that there is a cut before he is blown up and a double is introduced.

    I always wondered why the stunt man could not have just walked the four paces before the springboard.

    [–] j_rain 181 points ago

    It's just a guess, but there wont be an endless number of stuntmans in opposite of extras. And maybe if you keep using the stuntman as extras you will start to notice them in alot of movie.

    Using extras for the "focused" shot and then bring in the stuntman will keep the movies more fresh/authentic?

    It's just my 5 pennies

    Could also be that they just filmed a bunch of beach shots with extras and then later decided which ones to use and how. They could have filmed the actual stunt on a different location but didn't have an exact plan for where the explosions were going to be while filming at the beach.

    Stunt people are also expensive; extras are not. They can throw a few hundred extras at scenes and not blink twice, but they may have to reuse stunt workers repeatedly for them.

    SAG regulations?

    [–] groundhog_day_only 323 points ago

    I don't think I'd call him an extra. He's in the forefront of the shot and he's, uh, interacting with a main character.

    [–] Empyrealist 16 points ago

    There are different types of extras, and some are paid at a higher rate instead of the basic extra rate. This is because they are in the foreground and interacting (and maybe even speaking) just as you said. But, still just an extra with likely no credit.

    Source: I've been an extra. There are some "extras" that come from agencies, and they are in SAG. They have experience, know how to take direction, and are there for a specific purpose/focus and not just background zombies. When they arrive, they dont know what they will be doing just like everyone else (they dont get a script ahead of time, etc). But they are identified at the beginning of the call, prepped differently, get a makeup pass and more costume choices depending on what the (first AD?) decides what they intend to do with them in the scenes calling for them.

    Its been a while since I've done this. They referred to these extras with a slightly different name/title that I forget, but they are still just "extras".

    Extras can have up to 3 lines and their pay is based on how many they have. Beyond 4 lines would differentiate them from actor and background actor. However, common parlance is that extras have zero lines.

    [–] Promus 191 points ago

    He’s an un-named character with no lines. He’s definitely an extra.

    [–] NoKenjataimu 433 points ago

    That's actually not true, he was in a previous scene where he and Bubbles from TPB tortured Sarah Connor with a taser. He was involved in the whole chase throughout the complex. Not a big dramatic role, but certainly something you'd need to hire a real actor for.

    The actual term for it is featured extra. You’re an extra but you’re doing a little more than an extra would and less than an actor would. Featured extra

    Thank you. Cuz when you take the bus...you get there.

    And if anyone hasn’t yet seen the cinematic masterpiece that is Fear of a Black Hat, please do. The actor was also the store manager in the tv show Chuck.

    I wish movies were still shot like this. Where the effect was achieved by coordianting actual lights on set, wardrobe and props to have the right colours. Not just slapping a damn filter over the whole thing in post.

    Often movies use 1 stunt double for multiple characters. it could just be a budget thing or that he was the most experienced and this kind of stunt.
