I went to film school for four months at a college where they shot parts of City Slickers 2: The Legend of Curly’s Gold.
A perfect little movie that I would recommend to anyone. Unless it's New Year's Eve and you haven't kissed anyone in 10 months because of a pandemic and the movie serves as a reminder that you've been in love three times in your life and each time you really and truly blew it. In that case, I would not recommend watching it. This is a purely hypothetical situation, no further questions.
The only movie where you can see someone who looks exactly like the lead singer of Smash Mouth get crushed to death by the wheels of a semi-trailer truck.
When one of the worst entries in your franchise features Tyrese taking his shirt off to punch the window out of a Ferrari, you're doing pretty well!
For a guy who is so hot and known for being a sex machine with all the chicks Shaft fucks kind of weird.
I love a movie where a detective gets mixed up in something bigger than he thought and this is one of those for sure! Has the glacial pace of a lot of movies from the era that hurts it a bit, but the dialog fun as hell and Richard Roundtree’s cooly charismatic performance is so iconic here it feels cliche to even mention it. At one point Shaft makes love beneath a framed picture of Shaft and honestly? I get it.
There’s an absolute buck wild interview with Graham Yost about the making of this movie where he says:
• The elevator scene was inspired by “Perseus [defeating] Medusa with the shield” (?)
• Originally the bus was only going 20 miles per hour, because “that’s as fast as a human being can run” (??)
• The first two choices for the Keanu role were Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks (???)
• The first two choices for the Sandra Bullock role…
