      Is no one going to point out that the star trek film with V'ger in it was the first one? I would have thought star trek fans would have been all over that one

      Is it me, or is #66 a pic from the 80s Blob remake rather than the sequel?

      Ok, so Karate Kid 3 is just a rehash of the original, and Macchio looks like he couldn't be bothered to get into shape for the role, but damn that final showdown gets my spine tingling as the bad-guy goads him while he's on the mat and Myaggi gives that little speech. For me its one of those cheesy movie moments where its rubbish, but the way the music builds up gets you all riled up.

      Oh, and US marshals. Its Tommy Lee Jones and his whole posse returning, which makes sense as they're tracking another fugitive. It would have been more wierd if it had been Kimble again, framed for another crime (although would have been nice to have a little cameo or reference to him)

      Wes Craven's New Nightmare was supposed to feature Johnny Depp alongside Heather Langenkamp, but Wes Craven cancelled those plans because he thought he was too big a star. Years later, Johnny told him he would have been happy to take the role.

      The Exorcist III wasn't a bad movie actually, although not as good as the book by William Peter Blatty (yes, he who also wrote The Exorcist). They just shouldn't have given it this name, but the original name of the book, Legion, and considered it a separate movie.

      The smartest thing Tobe Hooper ever did was take his TCM sequel into dark comedy territory, it's a terrific movie. The original is lightning in a bottle stuff, impossible to recreate, Hooper knew this, shame Platinum Dunes didn't realize the same thing.

      The Exorcist 3 was never meant to be an Exorcist movie until the stupid studio got its hands on it. It is still a great movie. And the screenshot you got up there is still the greatest jump scare EVER.

      "Sees" instead of "seas"... "too" instead of "two"...countless other mistakes.... Do you need a proof reader, Total Film? You can pay me in cinema tickets! ;-)

      #46 Scanner Cop - Just to put things right, Cronenberg has only the rights for creating the characters for Scanners (1981), he does NOT have a screenwriting credit on Scanner Cop.

      Enjoyable list, but I have to be a bit picky -- 'King Kong Lives' was made in 1986.

      [REC] 3: Genesis, anyone? Abandons the found footage and horror for a flimsy supernatural rom com. Glad that [REC] 4 will return to form though
