There was a time when Jim Carey was funny... really!
Yeah, he was funny. Once upon a time. And i don't necessarily mean as Ace Ventura. You see, before he made it big as the pet detective he was the token white guy on the sort of all-black SNL-esque comedy show "In Living Color", which was run by the Wayans-Brothers (who were never again as funny as in this. Well, if i come to think of it, Damon did "Bulletproof" and "Major Payne", who were quite funny, but the rest of the family truly sucked when they left ILC).
But we're talking JC, so here's two of my favorite ILC sketches:
Seriously, if you've never seen "Big Trouble in Little China" you're not worth reading this blog. Go and buy the DVD. Buy, not rent, and not download!
Anyways, John Carpenter himself provided the theme song with a little help from his band, The Coupe De Villes. John, i've been waiting for 21 years now to get a sequel, don't ya think it's time, brother?
Bud Spencer and Terence Hill films were the shiznit in Europe in the 70s and early 80s (though their stardom had already begun fading somewhat back then). And just like every of their movies featured at least a dozen fisticuffs and people getting hammered in the head by Buddy, they also all had a great musical score by italian brothers Guido and Maurizio De Angelis (who called themselves the Oliver Onions).
The Oliver Onions - Bulldozer (1978)
The Oliver Onions - Flying through the air (1973, from "Più forte, ragazzi!/All the way boys!")
