Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers picture

Trivia: The production of the film was notoriously troubled. There were numerous writers working on numerous drafts of the script before one was finally settled on. Filming was hectic with many scenes being omitted or re-written on-set. And after the first cut was complete, a poor test-screening lead to the film going through drastic reshoots that altered much of the story, including the addition of a brand new ending, which had to be written around the fact that co-star Donald Pleasance passed away shortly after the end of principal photography.

The Quick and the Dead picture

The Net picture

Trivia: The movie was a not so subtle plug for Apple/Macintosh. The director/producer Irwin Winkler is a "Mac man." All the personal computers Angela uses are Macs. Even at the end, the computer conference was filmed at the Moscone center in San Francisco and is a tribute/simulation to the main MacWorld conference which is held every January at the Moscone. The plot is based on the good guys using Macs and the bad guys on PC's/Windows. Still today, but especially raging back in the 1990's, was the huge Mac rivalry with Windows.

Rumble in the Bronx picture

Trivia: One of the first scenes to be filmed was where Jackie jumps from the base of the bridge to the hovercraft. Unfortunately, he broke his ankle doing it and ended up in plaster.

If you watch through the titles, you can see him showing off the sock.
