    Will "Wesley Crusher" Weaton, turned down the part. It made Norton's career.

    Think about the what if;

    Wesley Crusher "I'm not going to hit you" to Brad Pitt in fight club.

    just can't remember the name of that song

    Its from Indiana jones and the temple of doom.I've downloaded the soundtrack and its not on it.Its a famous composition,john williams didnt compose it either.

    Anyway heres the scene it was from

    "After the movie leaves the comparative safety of Shanghai and relocates to deepest darkest India, so too the music takes on a much more treacherous, foreboding feel, with Williams adding slight dissonances, heavier strings and even bursts of the sitar to the now-familiar themes, which continue to reappear in leitmotif fashion. However, this is not to say that the score becomes repetitive. On the contrary, as well as maintaining the thematic presence, Williams adds some truly marvellous standalone cues to the proceedings, from the breathless action of 'Slalom on Mt. Humol', 'Bug Tunnel and Death Trap' and 'The Mine Car Chase', to the truly terrifying 'The Temple of Doom' with its frantic chanting chorus and unnerving synthesised drone, which underscores the scene where Indy and Willie Scott witness the evil Thuggees making sacrifices to the god Khali."

    Think i'll actually go out and buy it if no one can get it.Really annoying.

    I've seen it, and frankly the conclusion I've come to crack cocaine, lots and lots of crack cocaine..........

    Maybe it sounded better on paper, maybe the producer has incriminating evidence, maybe Norton sold his soul to get into movies, and then discovered satan "just happened to have this script lying around" and was really interested in getting into production.

    We will never know for sure.

    Which begs the question, what made you watch it? :D

    My old video shop, reel world (I used to work there) and was back in after an absence of time spent aboard.

    I forgot that we had totally opposite tastes in film, and to my and my eyes regret it took his recommendations and it took, death to smooch, but I'm a cheerleader, breakfast of champions and diner rush to jog my memory.

    A TV documentary series from maybe 90s about world war one or two or some war narrated by Henry Ramer. I searched so unless someone has it...

    It was similar to the War In The Pacific series

    Doesn't sound right but closest guess from a quick google is a 30 min production from 1960 called: Canada's Army Abroad


    Couldn't see an 80s/90s doc series about War on:


    National Film Board of Canada:

    He is listed on both as narrator for a few productions.

    Also.. played Doctor Doom apparently 🙂

    Thanks but not that. It was WW2 i think. It was a series on RTE every week for 30 or 40 mins. I searched agood deal surprising it is not mentioned. Ireme seeing his name as narrator several times. he is the best narrator I have heard.

    He also narrates three documentaries on sin cities Berlin, Paris and Shangai

    I always love Mark Kermode's description of Richard Gere's acting career. It consists of blinking, looking down and exhaling through his nose.
