Norwegian army snowmobiles were modified to allow the cast, and crew to access some of the more remote snow covered locations in the Scottish Highlands. The actors were knee deep in snow.

The story goes they marched to Scotland from York with 3000 men and were never seen of again. Historians dispute what actually happened to them. Some believe that they were disbanded, while others believe that they were massacred●Neil wanted to explore a "what if" scenario and within that scenario what would happen if one survivor made it back to the Roman lines and how his own people would treat him◆German archaeologists have found evidence of the 9th Legion on the banks of the Rhine River and carbon-dated them long after these events took place, suggesting that rather than being wiped out, after these battles simply moved to Germany

#theincrediblehulk :🌟🌟🌟1/2:Bruce Banner, a scientist on the run from the U.S. Government, must find a cure for the monster he turns into, whenever he loses his temper.
Louis Leterrier wanted Mark Ruffalo for the role of Bruce Banner, but Marvel insisted on Edward Norton. Ironically, Ruffalo would go on to replace Norton as Banner in future Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
According to Tim Roth, Edward Norton re-wrote scenes every day. Norton and Liv Tyler also spent hours discussing their characters' lives (especially before the Hulk appeared). Liv Tyler accepted her role without reading the script.
Originally, Abomination was going to return as a supporting antagonist in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), but he was cut.
Eric Bana was asked to reprise his role of Bruce Banner, but he turned it down.
The film is tinted the same shade of green as the Hulk's skin.
Hulk has a total of six words, provided by Lou Ferrigno: "Leave Me Alone", "Hulk Smash", and "Betty". In the final scene, General Ross is drinking an "Incredible Hulk" cocktail at the bar. It is made using equal parts of Hennessy, cognac, and Hpnotiq liqueur.
Quotes: [as they're kissing, Bruce's heart monitor on his watch rapidly raises]
Bruce Banner: We can't do this.
Betty Ross: It's okay. I want to.
Bruce Banner: No. No. I can't. I can't get too excited.

#romeo +juliet :🌟🌟🌟:Shakespeare's famous play is updated to the hip modern suburb of Verona still retaining its original dialogue.
Rating: PG-13 (for scenes of contemporary violence and some sensuality)
Genre: #Drama , #Romance
Directed By: #bazluhrmann
Written By: Craig Pearce, Baz Luhrmann, Martin Brown
In Theaters: Nov 1, 1996
Leonardo DiCaprio's version of Romeo's speech at Juliet's bier was so good that it moved Claire Danes to tears, nearly ruining the scene. The moment the director yelled "cut," Danes smacked DiCaprio on the arm and said, "Don't make me cry. I'm supposed to be comatose, here!" The film runs for exactly two hours, in line with the prologue which states: "Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage". Claire Danes's first day on set filming with Leonardo DiCaprio was the topless scene after Romeo and Juliet have first spent the night.
Leonardo DiCaprio was Baz Luhrmann's first choice to play Romeo.
The highest-grossing live-action William Shakespeare adaptation.
Neil Patrick Harris was considered for the role of Romeo.
Claire Danes' rendition of Juliet's line "I long to die!" is sampled in the background of the Evanescence song "Tourniquet." Sam Rockwell auditioned for the role of Mercutio.
Romeo: O, wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?
Juliet: What satisfaction canst thou have tonight?
Romeo: The exchange of thy love's faithful vow for mine.
Juliet: I gave thee mine before thou didst request it!

Deadpool 2 is a 2018 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Deadpool. It is the eleventh instalment in the X-men film series and a sequel to the 2016 film Deadpool. Directed by David Leitch and written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Ryan Reynolds, the film sees Deadpool form the team X-Force to protect a young mutant from a man named Cable.
Where do I begin? Frankly I have a lot of thoughts about this movie. Starting with, I know Stan Lee appeared in a teaser trailer for Deadpool 2 but was it just me or did he make no appearance in the movie? If so, that’s shocking, especially because I haven’t seen the teaser I just mentioned. But onto the nitty gritty. Deadpool 2 is an all or nothing film, which I love. But it has me feeling conflicted. The first half of the movie is somewhat solemn and surprisingly emotional. I was getting rather teary eyed and I was not expecting that. Course it still throws in the classic Deadpool humour, which is great, but the humour during this part of the movie feels almost too safe for Deadpool. In the first film a lot of the humour has shock value, but you love it so much you let it slide. This time around, not as much shock value in the dialogue which was a tad disappointing.

Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013) 🎬
The first film adaption of a graphic novel to win the Palme D'Or.
There was controversy surrounding Abdellatif Kechiche and his work methods. It was revealed that he would do hundreds of takes for small scenes to achieve the desired realism of the story, and his intense directorial style was borderline abusive. Both actresses stated that the film looks so real because Kechiche pushed them to their breaking point, and that they were really struggling. They also said that they did not wish to work with him again.

#trainspotting :🌟🌟🌟🌟:Renton, deeply immersed in the Edinburgh drug scene, tries to clean up and get out, despite the allure of the drugs and influence of friends.
Ewan McGregor read books about crack and heroin to prepare for the role.
Danny Boyle used creative methods while directing, necessitated by the film's low budget.
To play the skinny heroin-addicted Renton, Ewan McGregor lost 26 pounds. It took him only two months to reach Renton's target size.
Due to the skimpy budget, most scenes had to be shot in just one take.
The whole film was shot in just seven and a half weeks.
Kelly Macdonald, although supposedly 14 in the film, was 19 when making it. It was released on her 20th birthday.
In 1999, it was ranked #10 on the British Film Institute's 100 Greatest British Films of the 20th Century.
Of the main cast, only Jonny Lee Miller is not a Scot.
Included among the "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die", edited by Steven Schneider.

Christopher Nolan was on a road trip from Chicago to Los Angeles with his younger brother Jonathan. Jonathan told him about his short story that would later be fleshed out into the screenplay for Memento. It was Christopher who came up with the idea to tell the story backwards. The black & white sequences are shown in chronological order. The color sequences are shown in reverse order. The two sequences "meet" at the end of the film, producing one common story◆ Nolan's white Honda Civic can be seen parked next to Leonard's Jaguar at the motel◆In one scene, Leonard quickly passes in front of a comic book store. The Batman logo is displayed prominently on the store's window. Nolan's very next film was Batman Begins which also featured Mark @markboonejunior Boone Junior◆The picture that Leonard finds in the envelope under his motel door shows him pointing at a bare spot on his chest. He tells Natalie (Carrie @carrieannemoss Anne Moss) that this spot is being saved for when he finds John G. Later. When Leonard is driving to the tattoo parlor, he thinks about his wife, and a flashback is shown in which he is lying in bed with his wife. The bare spot in this shot now contains: "I've done it."◆StephenTobolowsky (Sammy Jankis) told Nolan he was once given an experimental pain killer that induced amnesia for a surgery he had undergone◆Thomas Lennon plays Sammy Jankis' doctor. Thomas also plays Bruce Wayne's doctor in The Dark Knight Rises
