10 Famous Movie Lines That Were Improvised

10 Famous Movie Lines That Were Improvised

Movies are planned years in advance with the majority of films not even beginning to production without a highly polished script. However, many of the most iconic moments in movie history were the result of an actor improvising their lines after gaining the trust of their director.

1. Taxi Driver

Perhaps the most famous lines in movie history, “You talkin’ to me” has been imitated and reworked on numerous occasions. Robert De Niro was given a simple stage direction of his character, Travis Bickle talking into a mirror which morphed into a classic scene.

2. Titanic

1997 blockbuster, Titanic cemented Leonardo DiCaprio as a leading man with his much-loved, “I’m the king of the world” line becoming iconic. DiCaprio shouted the line when first arriving on the recreation of the ship and was liked so much, director James Cameron found a place for it in the script.

3. Casablanca

Throughout the movie, Humphrey Bogart’s character, Rick refers to Ingrid Bergman as “kid.” The line, “Here’s looking at you, kid” was initially said by Bogart when he and Bergman played poker offscreen. Bogart liked the line so much he brought it to the 1942 classic.

4. The Empire Strikes Back

Still recognized as the classic of the series, “Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back” is known for the moment Princess Leia tells Han Solo she loves him. Harrison Ford was supposed to reply, “I love you too” but felt it was out of character for Solo. Instead, he simply said, “I know” and went down in movie history.

5. This is Spinal Tap

Christopher Guest is known for creating improvised comedies with a loose script, but his most famous must be, “This is Spinal Tap.” The movie includes the classic line, “It’s a fine line between stupid and clever” which has become as iconic as any in film history.

6. The Silence of the Lambs

Sir Anthony Hopkins deservedly won an Oscar and hit the Hollywood A-list for his turn as Hannibal the Cannibal opposite Jodie Foster. A dedicated stage actor prior to his Hollywood breakthrough, Hopkins wanted to keep Foster unsettled between takes and began to use the hiss which became iconic as part of the “… with a nice chianti” line.

7. His Girl Friday

Cary Grant stars in this 1940 fast-talking screwball comedy alongside Katherine Hepburn. Grant ad-libbed the line, “The last man to say that to me was Archie Leach.” The irony being, Grant’s real name was Archibald Leach.

8. Shaun of the Dead

Now seen as a genre-bending classic, “Shaun of the Dead” comes from the minds of Nick Frost, Simon Pegg, and director Edgar Wright. Many lines were improvised during the filming of this first part of the Cornetto trilogy, including “and he invented the mobile disco” when describing the clientele of The Winchester pub.

9. Being John Malcovich

Starring John Cusack and Cameron Diaz, this cult favorite includes the line, “Hey Malkovich, think fast.” The actor is hit in the head by a beer can as the line is shouted from a moving car, the car was simply supposed to drive past Malkovich without incident.

10. The Warriors

Another cult favorite, “The Warriors” includes many iconic lines, none more so than “Warriors, come out to play.” Actor David Patrick Kelly improvised the line after feeling merely clinking together bottles would not provoke the gang into a fight.

The 5 Best Black and White Horror Movies of All Time

The 5 Best Black and White Horror Movies of All Time

When it comes to all-time great movies in the horror movie, there are plenty of classics. However, many modern day horror fans tend to focus on the films full of colorful images of blood, gore, and terror. Surprisingly, there are more than a handful of black and white horror movies worth watching, more than a few times. Here are five of the all-time best in the category.

Nosferatu

Travel back to 1922 when horror got a serious kickstart from Nosferatu, a movie which first arrived in Germany. It’s one of the earliest films to really help tell the horrifying tale of Count Dracula (changed to Count Orlok), based on the famous Bram Stoker horror novel. The film also came under controversy as Stoker’s heirs sued and the court ruled that all copies must be destroyed. However, just like the Dracula tale, copies have survived for horror fans to check out in the modern day.

Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

Yet another 1920’s classic, this isn’t just in black and white, but also completely silent. This early horror film is about a hypnotist who takes control of a sleepwalker. While that sounds like a fun concept, the hypotist also hasan evil nature to him. Rather than using the hypnotic power for party games, he uses his subject to kill off people. Horror fans and film enthusiasts alike will find plenty to appreciate when viewing this classic.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Jack Finney’s “The Body Snatchers” provided source material for this film about alien invaders who take over human bodies as their hosts. The 1950s movie also had a smart political undercurrent as it was during the time of McCarthyism, where everyone was suspicious of those around them. This gripping terror worked very well as early black and white sci-fi/horror and even saw a 1978 remake done in color which is also stellar.

Psycho

Any all-time great list of horror movies should include this 1960s classic from director Alfred Hitchcock. It tells the story of Norman Bates and his psychotic tendencies based on a strange relationship with his mother. Despite being a black and white film, viewers felt the terror of many moments in the film. The film helped Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh became household names, with Perkins appearing in three sequels for this box office hit. The screaming shower murder scene is also considered iconic in horror to this day.

Night of the Living Dead

The zombie genre has come a long way, but this classic helped launch the concept. This was the debut film from director George A. Romero and it certainly delivered back in 1968. It features the tale of seven people who become trapped in a farmhouse as zombies descend upon the area looking for consumable flesh. The film spawned plenty of sequels, spinoffs, and reboots, and cost just $114,000 to film near Pittsburgh. Compared to today’s high-cost CGI-driven horror, this one still stands the test of time.

The Top 5 Directors To Take Over James Bond Movies

The Top 5 Directors To Take Over James Bond Movies

The James Bond film franchise has been going strong for fifty-six years now, starting with 1962’s Dr. No. Since then, many different directors have been at the helm of these iconic films, all bringing a unique style with them. With news of director Danny Boyle’s exit from BOND 25, who should take over next? Here’s the top five picks:

Kathryn Bigelow

The James Bond franchise mixes action, wry humor, and drama together efficiently. That’s the same way Kathryn Bigelow directs her films. Her major hits such as Point Break, The Hurt Locker and the recent smash Detroit all prove her amazing ability as a director and establish her major credentials. All of her films have artistic style and flair that would fit perfectly among the James Bond franchise, making her an ideal candidate for BOND 25.

James Wan

James Wan has dabbled in many different genres and has successfully established three franchises – Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring – as well as directing entries in other franchises – Furious 7, Aquaman. Obviously, Wan is no stranger to taking part in a large franchise, making him a top pick for the director of BOND 25. His name is always proposed by the Hollywood studios when they need a director to join a franchise, and it wouldn’t be surprising if he joined the crew of the next James Bond film.

Susanne Bier

Most of Susanne Bier’s films are in her native Danish tongue, but they’re still critically acclaimed and show fantastic direction and storytelling. Her English-language miniseries The Night Manager was considered one of the best series of 2016 and earned her a more well-known presence in the Western hemisphere. Her style of direction fits perfectly with the Bond films of the past decade and she would be a welcome addition to the franchise.

Ryan Coogler

Ryan Coogler has proved himself to be one of the best directors currently working in Hollywood. He only has three films under his belt – Fruitvale Station in 2013, Creed in 2015, and Black Panther in 2018 – but all three have been major successes, both critically and commercially. Furthermore, he joined already established franchises and was able to direct entries into both that didn’t feel out of place at all – entries that joined the list of films most acclaimed from each franchise. That alone should make Coogler a contender for the next James Bond director, as his BOND 25 would fit in perfectly with the other 24 James Bond films.

Fernando Meirelles

Fernando Meirelles directs mostly in Spanish, but his films have been received warmly by English critics. Both his Spanish and English films mix character-driven drama with realistic world views and breathtaking visual spectaculars. All three of these qualities have been seen in the James Bond films of the 21st century. This makes Meirelles a perfect fit for BOND 25 and for the James Bond franchise.

The 10 Best Mark Wahlberg Movies of All Time

The 10 Best Mark Wahlberg Movies of All Time

Love him or hate him, Mark Wahlberg has been a fixture in American cinema for a few decades now. The former rapper and reformed bad boy has shown that he boasts the rare ability to pick winning scrips. Here are some of his most well-known films.

The Lovely Bones

In this moving piece, Wahlberg plays a father who is haunted when the worst possible fate befalls his daughter. Throwing away his tough guy image, his dramatic chops are on display in this touching film. Directed by Peter Jackson, it also boasts incredible visual effects.

The Departed

With an all-star cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Jack Nicholson and Matt Damon, this movie seemed destined to dazzle audiences. Helmed by Martin Scorsese, this thriller cleaned up at award shows.

FEAR

Wahlberg’s starring turn as a psychotically obsessed boyfriend convinced audiences to take him seriously as an actor. Alongside major movie star Reese Witherspoon, he showed that he could carry a movie.

Planet of The Apes

Although audiences tend to be critical of reboots, they couldn’t get enough of this marvelous movie. Wahlberg’s turn as Leo Davidson was both campy, believable and fun.

The Perfect Storm

Playing a fisherman from the wrong side of the tracks in Gloucester, Massachusetts, Wahlberg’s gritty performance perfected complemented George Clooney’s more eloquent captain.

Date Night

Playing up his Calvin Klein model persona, Wahlberg’s performance as Tina Fey’s attractive ex was pitch perfect.

Ted

This was somewhat of a surprise hit. Co-starring Mila Kunis and one very outspoken teddy bear, the film reminded executives that Wahlberg was capable of carrying a comedy.

Invincible

Fans of the Philadelphia Eagles loved this film, which starred Wahlberg as the indomitable Vince Papale, a walk-on who carried the spirit of Eagles fans long before they claimed victory in the Super Bowl. Because of his role in this movie, Wahlberg admitted feeling conflicted about his allegiances during the 2018 Super Bowl.

The Fighter

In this film, Wahlberg once again showed his affinity for starring in sports movies. Playing the brother of Christian Bale, he proved his mettle once again.

Boogie Nights

For some, Boogie Nights is the ultimate Mark Wahlberg film. In his starring role as rookie porn star Dirk Diggler, Wahlberg served up both laughs and drama. Director Paul Thomas Anderson, meanwhile, proved that he was a heavy hitter in Hollywood.

7 of The Best Movies Ever Filmed In Pittsburgh

7 of The Best Movies Ever Filmed In Pittsburgh

Dozens of movies have been filmed in or around Pittsburgh over the decades. While some were awful, others earned Academy Awards. The coolest movies, however, were those that both earned critical or popular acclaim and showcased various features or attractions within Pittsburgh. Consider the following seven examples:

Flashdance (1983)

“Flashdance” was an admittedly silly romantic comedy about a beautiful young woman who worked in a steel mill during the day and danced at a bar at night while hoping to somehow earn a slot in a dance conservatory. In addition to being set in Pittsburgh, the movie also featured Vic Vianca, a Pittsburgh traffic cop known for his flamboyant ways of directing traffic.

Night of The Living Dead (1968)

Considered one of the greatest horror movies ever made, George Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead” introduced people to the fast-moving and predatory zombies that later inspired shows like “The Walking Dead.” It also features shots of the Evans City Cemetery in Butler County that are among the most telegenic ever.

Dawn of The Dead (1978)

Made a decade after “Night,” most of this sequel was shot at the Monroeville Mall. Romero killed two birds with one stone by making a zombie movie that also satirized mindless consumerism.

Adventureland (2009)

“Adventureland” is a romantic comedy set in 1987 that stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. Eisenberg plays a recent college grad with big plans that get derailed by money troubles. He thus has to take a job at the titular Adventureland, which is really Kennywood, an amusement park just eight miles southeast of Pittsburgh. Kennywood, which opened in 1898, boasts rides that date as far back as 1920 along with more modern attractions.

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

In contrast to the first two movies in “The Dark Knight Trilogy,” which were shot mainly in England, parts of “The Dark Knight Rises” were set in Pittsburgh,including the sequence where the evil Bane sets off a series of bombs that destroy parts of the city, including Gotham Stadium, which is really Heinz Field. Hines Ward, who had played for the Pittsburgh Steelers in real life, had a cameo as a football player outrunning the explosions. Pittsburgh residents can also spot various streets, plus the Carnegie Mellon University Software Science Institute and the Carnegie Institute, which are both in Oakland.

Silence of The Lambs (1991)

“Silence of the Lambs” bagged several Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress and is one of the few horror films to earn such accolades. It also features such Pittsburgh landmarks as the county jail, the Allegheny Courthouse, Oakland’s Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Mall, and Canonsburg’s Western Center. The last has since been demolished.

Striking Distance (1993)

The action thriller “Striking Distance” was set entirely in Pittsburgh; in fact, an early title for the film was “Three Rivers,” which referred to the fact that Pittsburgh sits at the junction of the Ohio, Monongahela, and Allegheny Rivers. Bruce Willis and Sarah Jessica Parker play a pair of cops pursuing a serial killer. The film features such Pittsburgh landmarks as Mt. Washington, Monongahela, and Point State Park.

The 10 Greatest Special Effects Movies of All Time

The 10 Greatest Special Effects Movies of All Time

Every few months, not often enough, a film is released with visual special effects so stunning that they stop us cold, grab our attention, and set our imaginations on fire. Sometimes the effects pull the worlds within the movie apart with grand explosions and monumental shifts. At other times, the subtle artistry of the effects isn’t immediately obvious to the viewer.

One thing the 10 films on this list have in common is the masterful use of CGI and practical effects to create scenes so realistic and life-like that we never forget them.

A Trip To The Moon (1902)

Cinema hadn’t been around for a decade when filmmaker Georges Méliès began creating amazing effects. He dazzled his audience with simple techniques that produced astonishing transitions and transformations. He was among the first to discover that when different scenes were tied together, the human eye would fill in the gaps. His amazing illusions were the first generation of cinematic special effects.

The Wizard Of Oz (1939)

Using four different flavors of gelatin powder on horses, a facsimile of a twister, and a sharp shift from sepia tones to amazing Technicolor, the musical adaptation of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was MGM’s most expensive film production at the time. Eventually, the costly effects paid for themselves and allegedly, the entrepreneurial minds that created them had no regrets.

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Stanley Kubrick’s sci-fi classic made space travel look amazingly authentic in 1968. Fifty years later, the film still impresses with the awe-inspiring surrealism of its final scenes.

Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)

The sequel to James Cameron’s career-launching The Terminator came along at a time when digital effects were in their infancy. Featuring a CGI shapeshifter as its primary villain, the body-morphing techniques used in this film kept copycats busy for several years.

Jurassic Park (1993)

Steven Spielberg kicked off what many see as the beginning of the computer era in special effects with Jurassic Park. A perfect blend of CGI and practical effects, the journey into the return of the dinosaurs was so realistic that audiences were dazzled and terrified at the same time.

Forrest Gump (1994)

Aside from placing the film’s titular character in several huge historical moments, it also convinced us that Gary Sinise’s Lt. Dan was a genuine double-amputee from the Vietnam era.

Pan’s Labyrinth (1996)

Guillermo Del Toro’s dark nightmare of a tale featured contortionist Doug Jones as two characters: the faceless monster Pale man and the bizarrely touching Faun. It featured the perfect blending of effects and sublime acting.

The Matrix (1999)

In a feast for the eyes that combined the best techniques of cinema and video games at the time, the Wachowski brothers developed the slow-motion tracking method that utilized complex multi-camera rigs for the truly unique shots used in the film.

Avatar (2009)

In this film, James Cameron created a world of stunning 3D digital characters that are among the very best of the era of computer effects. Three more Avatar films are planned to create a franchise.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014)

Using innovative special effects, the franchise hero Caesar, brought to life by actor Andy Serkis, and his cohorts are polished, technical wonders that offer so many realistic nuances that it’s easy to get lost in the suspension of disbelief.

The Top 10 Best Shark Movies of All Time

The Top 10 Best Shark Movies of All Time

Long before global warming menaced the public on the big screen, there were sharks. Big and bad with flesh-ripping teeth and huge appetites, they swim to the tune of ominous music and stoke the primal fears that make watching these ultimate monster movies so much fun. Grab some popcorn and have a seat — these are the top ten you have to see.

Sharknado

In the tradition of movies like Lake Placid that we love to watch just to hear Betty White swear, a couple of drinks and a freak storm dropping sharks on Los Angeles is undeniable fun.

Open Water

Based on a true story of a couple trying to rekindle their romance with a scuba adventure, this low budget thriller has nothing special to offer but gut-gripping, sleep-defying fear. Watch it in the morning.

The Shallows

Blake Lively stars in this campy woman versus shark tale that’s both funny and futile on a personal level. It doesn’t have much to offer, but you’ll feel better about your life after.

The Reef

With water, blood and preppies demonstrating why they shouldn’t be given the keys to a yacht, The Reef takes itself way too seriously, but is still worth the ride.

Deep Blue Sea

This is the cruel and usual scientist-makes-breeding-blunder story that just won’t go away. Check your brain at the door and just revel in the blood and guts.

47 Meters Down

Mandy Moore and Clair Holt try to avoid being lunch in this low-budget flick. The ideas are high octane, but the execution isn’t. Still, it’s a great excuse to mow through a bucket of popcorn.

Bait

It’s Sharknado meets Lost as a group of tsunami survivors become part of the meat counter at a flooded grocery store. It’s embarrassingly cliché and utterly devoid of terror, but it’s shamelessly funny and won’t keep you up at night.

Ghost Shark

If you harbor any high school angst and want to see the kids you hated get shredded like pulled pork for sandwiches, it’s your turn. The severed body parts layered between the sexual innuendos is the foundation for a parade of endless horror movie stereotypes that like a train wreck, can’t help but hold your attention.

Mega Shark VS. Giant Octopus

If you wondered what Debbie Gibson did after her 80’s hits stopped generating revenue, she changed her named to Deborah and made a film so bad that it’s sure to be a bonding moment with someone at the asylum.

Jaws

This Spielberg-fueled nightmare is still the king of the hill after more than four decades. The cast was average and by today’s standards, so was the shark, but the simplicity of this man versus Great White story and directing second only to Hitchcock was enough to scare a whole generation out of the water. It’s the benchmark against which all other monster movies are measured.
