In 1950, General MacArthur led a successful invasion of Inchon, turning the tide of the Korean War.

In 1982, someone made a terrible movie about it.

One thought on “Cinematic Excrement: Episode 105 – Inchon

  1. Sorry if this isn’t the right place for this comment, but I don’t have a youtube account and this seemed like the most appropriate entry to leave a comment on.

    I stumbled across your channel recently and have been enjoying your reviews. I wish you the best of luck on your journey through the Razzie movies. In fact, if you don’t already have it, I suggest you get your hands on the book “The Official Razzie Movie Guide; Enjoying the Best of Hollywood’s Worst”, written by Razzie creator John Wilson. It may give you some background information on some of the Razzie winners, or other movies to check out once the project is over.

    However, I’m primarily leaving this comment in regards to one of your upcoming videos. I know that the movie “The Lonely Lady” is coming up, and there’s a fact about it that I feel you should know about, though it may color your opinion of both the movie and the Razzies. It seems that Wilson not only was involved in the promotional campaign for the movie, he’s partially responsible for some of what made it into the movie. To quote directly from the aforementioned Razzie book;

    “When this sequence [the one where Pia Zadora’s character has a mental breakdown] was excised after that Long Beach sneak preview, I threw caution to the wind and told the film’s producer how important this scene was to establishing Pia’s character and her dilemma. When my client found out what I’d done, he asked why I’d taken such a risk. ‘Because I WANT that clip for next year’s Razzies,’ I answered, adding ‘and besides, if they leave it out, they’ll be ruining a perfectly AWFUL movie!'”

    Maybe you already knew this information, especially if you have the book yourself. But it kind of rubs me the wrong way that Wilson did that for the sake of his awards show. Though I suppose that sort of thing is par for the course in Hollywood…

    Anyway, I thought that was some behind the scenes information that you might want to bring up in your upcoming review. Best of luck with the project!
