check out the book Hit and Run for the behind the scenes disaster

Tywin Lannister is the real star of this.
Binro the Heretic
The scenes where he was confronted by real-world evil were brilliant.

Like when the hooker asks him if he wants to party and he looks appalled & asks, "How old are you?"

Or when the mugger kills the guy and all he takes are his Air Jordans.

Caminante Nocturno
Along with everything else, this movie had the absolutely terrible luck of being released in the same summer as Jurassic Park.
Jerm
"We're done with our PG-13 movie lampooning a multitude of R rated movies. Now to advertise it during Saturday morning cartoons and also release a toy line, that should sell some tickets."

Maggot Brain
How profound, he really was the last action hero.

This movie is brilliant. Who cares if it bombed it's a classic.

The same *weekend* actually.

I kind of feel like the world is more ready for this sort of movie now than it was in 1993.
The Mothership
This is a great movie.

Eh, I think it was ok. Imo it suffers from the same issue as 'one punch man'.
It genuinely is the thing it seeks to lampoon. You cant be *both* without inducing cognitive dissonance in the viewer.
Eg. all the biz with the magic ticket is so incredibly lame-hollywood style, and its not even attempted to handle it with a wink and a nod or just not some completely lame way.

Theres a actually a bunch of Schwarzenegger films really similar to this. Eg. 'True lies' , 'kintergarden cop' Mix of action unt comedy, with parody elements.
I'd argue True lies is more successful as its clear which bits are action/drama and which bits are silly / parodical ones and the individual scenes work.

"It genuinely is the thing it seeks to lampoon. You cant be *both* without inducing cognitive dissonance in the viewer."

What are you talking about? Of course you can be the thing you're lampooning. The best parodies do precisely that. Have you never seen Kung Fu Hustle?

A good parody *loves* the thing it's parodying. That's what makes it fun! It's what made Scream great and Scary Movie awful: Scream *actually liked* the thing it was making fun of.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
It goes like this Hippo

....

/ Some bit parodying action films

Persons brain: Haha, yes action movies are dumb

/ Proceeds to be a normal action film

Persons brain: Wait why am I watching this!?!?

I havent seen kung-fu hustle.

Some great parody films

Young Frankenstien, Airplane, Shaun of the dead.

Sure the makers love the source material, but they did not just make a straight up regular copy of it. They made a parody.

The Mothership
Shut up. This is a great movie.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
An excellent counter-argument Mothership. I must yield my position. You sir have just won the internet.

The Mothership
The day is mine!

Well, there are less flashy ways of ending an acting career.
