Holy shit, this was fantastic.
Loved the delicious Raimi cheese, and it was a better superhero movie than most modern superhero movies.
What did you think of Darkman?
The 90s were filled with such dark comic book adaptations. They weren't particularly good, but in retrospect they are a lot more unique than today's capeshit.
Brandon was shot on the set of The Crow, in a scene that was supposed to have involved a prop gun. What doesn't make much sense to me is why they had a real gun on set in the first place.
I dunno all the details, though.
>used real guns not prop guns
>gun was used in live-fire shots
>bullet jammed in chamber
>same gun used in another scene firing blanks
>blank = propellant - bullet
>blank + bullet = real gunshot
>"accidentally" shoot Brandon Lee because no one was smart enough to check the gun before and after it was used
Blade 1 is great, gritty but dark fantasy too. Second is more comic book, more superhuman fights but not full blown capeshit.
Blade 3 is a trainwreck, even without Snipes being nuts its still a massive piece of shit. Lame story, horrible casting, fuck all action, and Ryan Reynolds in full quip mode.
using real guns is perfectly normal, it's often cheaper than prop guns (see Lord Of War, where they rented 700 actual AK-47s) and just as safe if you follow proper procedures
I know that the stagehands' union requires firearm knowledge on their entrance exam, but idk if that was added post Crow accident or not.
Either way it's really odd that it was not caught when:
>the round originally misfired
>they put the guns away after filming the live stuff
>they took the guns out to get them ready for the blank scene
>they gave the gun to the guy who was shooting it
>"Take the fucking elephant!!"
Y'see, it's this kind of shit that I just love. It's unapologetically cheesy, but it's made by someone who clearly doesn't give a single fuck about that particular fact.
