“Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me” BluRay Screen Captures & Deleted Scenes

Hello everybody! Back in 1992, Kiefer had a small, but significant part playing FBI Agent Sam Stanley in David Lynch’s film “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.” You can check out 460 BluRay screen captures of Kiefer from his part in the film. Not only that, but you can view 317 BluRay screen captures of Kiefer from the deleted and extended scenes featurette, titled ‘The Missing Pieces.’ Coming from an avid “Twin Peaks” fan, this was especially exciting! These deleted scenes were just now released in July 2014. So these were kept behind closed doors for over 20 years. Exciting, isn’t it?! Enjoy!

Pompeii Was “Hell” For Kiefer Sutherland

Los Angeles – Paul WS Anderson put Kiefer Sutherland through “hell” on the set of Pompeii.

The director admitted Sutherland and Kit Harington were left feeling “uncomfortable” as they filmed through clouds of ash to recreate the scenes from volcano explosion that destroyed the Italian city in 79 AD.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, he said: “We needed to plunge them into hell and it’s easier to act like that if they are in hellish conditions, if you talk to Kit or Kiefer, they would both tell you the same, it was hellish making the movie.

He added, we had a lot of very unhappy actors. Everyone was very committed to the movie and coming to work. But I think there were times when they weren’t happy. They weren’t coming in, in the mornings saying, ‘Woohoo! Pompeii!’ because they were getting ash in their eyes and in their lungs, it really was an uncomfortable movie but I think that discomfort added a huge layer of realism.”

He then joked: “Kiefer for example, makes a lot of notes in his script. About what the character is thinking, handwritten notes in his script and he would write things like, ‘NAR’, I would see this term ‘NAR’ all the way through his script.

“I said, ‘NAR’ and he said, ‘No acting required’. He said, ‘I don’t need to pretend that the world was ending. I know you’re going to make me feel like it is.”

According to the director, the 24 actor even revealed that Pompeii was the hardest film he’s ever made.

He explained: “Kiefer’s made about 50 movies and at the end of Pompeii he said, ‘That’s the toughest film I’ve ever made.’ I took that as a compliment!”

Pompeii (2014) BluRay Movie Captures Added

“Pompeii” Movie Review #1

(edited for spoilers)

A love story. Gladiator fights. Politics. An exploding volcano. Kiefer Sutherland as a Roman Senator.

“Pompeii” is an entertaining B movie. The visual effects technology available can take a B movie like “Pompeii” and make it look bigger and better than it would have years ago. “Pompeii” benefits greatly from that, taking a middling script where you can guess what’s coming next or what’s going to be said and make it look fantastic and immersive (the movie is released in 2D and 3D formats). After watching it in 2D I felt the movie would have been more fun in 3D.

“Pompeii” is the latest from director Paul W.S. Anderson, a love story about two people form the wrong side of the tracks set against the backdrop of a terrible event in history where a city of 20,000 people were destroyed (and lost for 1500 years) after the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. As a filmmaker, Anderson has a long career making visually interesting movies that are sometimes thin on substance.

As “Pompeii” unfolds there are moments where the earth shakes, the structures creaking and cracking. Characters watch it curiously, scared and confused. For the audience it’s mildly amusing, knowing what this is leading up to. It’s all part of the entertainment, not much different than the spectacle of the gladiator fights.

There’s little new in “Pompeii,” we’ve seen this story and its scenes before (“Conan the Barbarian,” “Titanic,” “Gladiator”). That isn’t the problem. It’s mostly the plain, wooden dialogue that as basic as basic comes (“Wake up, scum!”) and sometimes silly (“That’s the mountain, she grumbles sometimes”).

In the end “Pompeii” works as Saturday afternoon entertainment. It’s not groundbreaking or original, its just fun. Watching Anderson’s work over the years it’s clear he loves making movies and how it becomes part of pop culture. As someone who’s watched his movies and groaned more than once, I enjoyed “Pompeii.” It’s honest about what it is.
