The video is both amusing and disturbing at the same time. Reminds me of my last marriage and the things I wished I had said to him. Angry

Lucy, part of the video is with George threatening that older lady in From Dusk Til Dawn. Knowing George in real life I would bet he apologized to the actress. After all, he is a gentleman, albeit a bit nuts. Hahaha

Do I remember correctly that the kidnap victim was actually an old acting teacher of his? Does anyone else remember that story?

Can't say, I'm always laughing with that clown-carmechanic who still believes he's acting, so I always miss some parts of the dialogues. Very Happy

I was looking at some of my saved stuff and ran across this YouTube on From Dusk Till Dawn. Some really funny little snippets. Didn't think a new thread needed to be started since this one is about FDTD.

This is still one of my all time favourite films of George's. It's a really fantastic film as long as you turn it off right after Salma Hayek does her dance.

From that point on it deteriorates but before that it's classic Tarantino. Yes, I know it was directed by Rodriguez but it's a Tarantino film all the same IMO.

I'm not into bad boys at all, but tell me if this isn't the hottest man on two legs:

A video of From Dusk Til Dawn with Salma Hakek's "table dance".

IMO it's a little risque, (spoiler), but enjoy.

He was hotness all round in this film! It's still one of my faves and even thyough he has become a better actor in the intervening years, there's something so great about this character. We've never seen him play anyone as badass as this since which is a shame.

He spent the next 10 or so years working on becoming a charming, polished character and veered dangerously close to Roger Moore territory for a while. It's been nice watching him strip that veneer off and performing something more stripped down and bare (eg: Syriana, Michael Clayton) but I do wish he'd found another director who could have encouraged him to do whatever it was he did in FDTD. Just once more.

Absolutely Katie! Every time I watch FDTD, I'm wiped out for awhile. Now, I really watched George's face (when they showed it) during this dance. Maybe that explains why he seems to be in to "ass girls" now?

Haha Mel, are you referring to the scene where he was desperately trying to see what's underneath Salma's panties? I thought he was going to dislocate his neck in that scene. LOL

I saw From Dusk Til Dawn on TV last night and, holy mother of God, I've NEVER seen a film so full of violence and nudity. It was very good, could not turn it off, it was like watching a train wreck. All the actors were excellent, I especially like Harvey Keitel. Toward the end of the film the violence with people turning into vampires and biting each was almost comical. Like something out of Twilight Zone, only worse. LOL

I saw FDTD last night on tv for the first time and I'm still blown away.

Here's a video from UTube of the Best of the film. Spoiler alert lots and lots of swearing. If anyone is offended don't watch.

Yes cindi, the first time I saw it years ago I didn't like the first half
at all, but found the second part really funny !
I was a Tarantino virgin, so was totally unprepared.
It's certainly a film of two halves, just like a football match ! lol!

I think that he was supposed to play a "badass" in another movie a couple of years ago but I can't remember what the name of it was. He certainly is VERY hot when he is on the "angry side"....

I just bought From Dusk Till Dawn from my local video store for $4.99. Can't go wrong at that price. I didn't realize how violent the last one-third was, lots of nudity, blood and heads flying all over the place. I loved George as a badass too. The CD package came with another CD "Full tilt Boogie". It shows what they all went through making the movie (union problems, storms, etc.) and how much fun they had. Featured also is George's assistant Amy Cohen and what she had to do for him as his personal assistant (not what we'd like to think LOL). I'll watch it again of course but think I'll skip the third part.

Because I think we can never have too much of George as Seth Gecko:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Cult Classic: From Dusk Till Dawn

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Hey guys, she's behind youuuuu!

Featuring Salma Hayek, vampires and George Clooney in one of his most unhinged roles, From Dusk Till Dawn is a delight that deserved to be sampled once more.

Before Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino got a little self-indulgent with their Grindhouse double bill, they treated us to one of the biggest cult classics of the 1990s - From Dusk Till Dawn.

As one of the biggest TV heartthrobs of the decade on ER, George Clooney's performance as one half of the murderous Gecko brothers was perhaps the biggest shock for audiences when the film hit cinemas in 1996, but those who hadn’t followed the film’s pre-release material were in for quite an even bigger surprise.

The genius of From Dusk Till Dawn is that like Grindhouse, audiences receive two movies for the price of one, although in this case it's actually all part of the same film – a criminals on the lam thriller for the first hour and a schlocky dark vampire comedy the next. 16 years later, its unique structure feels fresher than ever, while Salma Hayek has lost none of her tantalising appeal in the film’s staggeringly sexy table dance scene.

Clooney and Tarantino play the respective Geckos brothers Seth and Richie, wanted by the FBI and soon finding themselves resorting to kidnapping a family and their RV to get across the Mexican border. There a safe house is waiting, as is a trucker and biker-frequented strip bar known as the Titty Twister.

What follows is one of the sexiest movie scenes in recent memory, as a beautiful Salma Hayek - humourously named Santanico Pandemonium - performs a scantily-clad table dance while a snake is draped across her. Vampires, criminals on the run and Salma Hayek looking her very best – what more could you ask for?

An interesting factoid about that scene, easily the film’s most memorable - is that audiences nearly came close to seeing Madonna in her role instead - or at least that's what Salma thought.

The actress has a fear of snakes and knew that her phobia would hamper her chances in winning the role. Director Robert Rodriguez actually tricked her into thinking that Madonna was about to win the part, so the actress spent two months with therapists to be ready for the scene. Yes, Rodriguez is slightly evil for doing that but were it Madonna in that scene, we doubt we could tell where the snake's skin ends and her's begins.

Like all quirky cult classics, From Dusk Till Dawn was met with a subdued and largely confused reception, grossing just $25 million from a $20 million budget. Considering that most films need to gross at least double their production budget, the movie was a relative flop, though it did later inspire two quite simply terrible direct-to-video follow-ups.

Perhaps our favourite barrage of criticism the film originally received, however, comes from the San Francisco Chronicle, which wrote at the time: ' If it's not one of the worst films of 1996 it will have been one miserable year". Considering that Striptease was released the same year, that’s pretty harsh.

Thankfully though, From Dusk Till Dawn’s riotous reputation persists two decades later – and that's not just because of Salma Hayek.
