Another one for Doc Holliday. Great great performance. A close second was his character in The Saint. That was a fun one too. :)

Don't remember the name, but I liked his role in "The Saint".

I believe his Saint character was Simon Templar

I voted for Doc Holliday, but I also think he made the best Batman/Bruce Wayne

Plopped my vote down for Knight...but I'm laughing remembering the Doc Holiday gunslinger mimick with the cup!

I'll stick with Real Genius...saw it when I was much younger...time/memory makes many performances better!

The more I think about it the more I like him as Bruce/Batman.

He captured that "dick" quality that Batman has that only comic book fans know about.


I thought Doc Holiday was ok but Quaid did it better.

Missing his role in Willow, The Saint, the blind movie (to name a few) and I don't know what twikoff was.

08-28-02, 07:26 AM
ugh, man, dont remind me of "at first sight".

yeah, val had a good run: the doors (1991), tombstone (1993), batman forever (1995), heat (1995), the ghost & the darkness (1996), the saint (1997), then KERSPLAT. "at first sight", "red planet" (which didn't really deserve its overly negative reception, it wasnt that bad), and "run for the money" (:huh:).

maybe "mindhunters" will help.

The movie was about a small time sports nut that lived in alabama. Unforunately he didn't have any athletic bones in his body but he won some kind of fantasy game thing on some sports site.

Really lame.

Bandoman

Twikoff was a small budget limited release picture about one man's search for meaning amidst banality. People around him seemed to view him as a choice of last resort, but he perservered. Classic work, IMO.

How can you diss this film? Did you even see it? How could you not get choked up when he gave up his career and moved to the farm to take care of his mother's otters?

That scene made me cry! Kilmer's speech when he's holding the otter named Geoff? Oh my God!

Snowmaker, you should really see this flick. It's truly amazing.

As if the plot wasn't stupid enough he had to take care of otters. Freakin' otters!!!!! You can't tell me there are otters in Alabama. Dogs, i could have believed, a farm with cows or pigs, i could have believed, but freakin' otters!?!?

Thank you, BoatDrinks, I thought I was the only one who loved this film. Val Kilmer did brilliant work in Tombstone and The Doors, but I will always think "Twikoff" when I see his face.


vaporWare - don't take it so literally. The otters were a metaphor.

The otters were not a metaphor. Remember the nightmare scene with Jules? They were very real to him.

Iron Chef - the nightmare about his violent encounter with Jules, the pimp, led to the otter metaphor - it was his reluctant escape from the violence of the city to his mother's farm, where the otters playfully romped in peace.

Point taken, but that still doesn't explain his fear of tractors.

The sequel (currently listed in the Hollywood Reporter as "Cwikoff" whatever that means..."Call Twikoff" maybe????) should be good though.
Kilmer with an Alabama Accent. GENIUS!!!

Sure, the Twikoff role was da bomb. But I think there was too much sports... It took away from any real substance, and really just caused a sense of bad mojo in the film.

Wasn't he in a double role in Twikoff? I seem to remember a flashback scene with him and Ned Beatty - Beatty is squealing like a pig ...

Well, to be fair, I don't think its creators ever made any pretenses that Twikoff was going to be about substance. More of a feel-good summer flick, IMO.

Except for the pimp. There was nothing feel-good about that. *shudder*

I didn't like that twikoff role at all. Always trying to catch up and destroy those records using that lame excuse of a sports game to move his way up the ladder. really bad. I hear the critics panned it aswell for it's total lack of entertianment. :p

Bandoman
08-29-02, 02:17 PM
I'm really tired of people coming in here and trashing Twikoff. Was it the best movie ever made? No. Don't pick it apart like it was supposed to be the next "Citizen Kane" (the fact that Twikoff names his scooter "Rosebud" is purely coincidental).

Cwikoff should be much better.

I agree with bando, this wasn't the next biggest thing. But considering the hype that came along with it. Name placement in every damn poll, leading in just about all of them, You would have figured it would have gotten a bigger share of profits.

I remember the advertising blitz, but surely Geoff isn't still contractually obligated to list the movie in every poll, is he?

I'm generally not a big fan of Val Kilmer, but he made a pretty good Batman, I thought. Batman Forever is my favorite of the four movies (well, that's counting the much-maligned and rightfully so Batman & Robin).

He was okay in Heat, too, which is probably my favorite movie that he's in.

Damn, I can't believe anyone liked Twikoff. I mean, come on, the effects were terrible. Not to mention that the whole last part of the story was a poorly done rewrite of Farm Hands (http://www.imdb.com/Title?0035866). I mean, Jules was clearly a dramatic take on Buckwheat.

Unfortunately, it's going straight-to-video, and will only be available on a Pan & Scan VHS with a street-date of 3/25. And while there's no definite plans for a DVD release, there is a rumor circulating around that Lion's Gate Films might be picking it up in the near future with an unrated special edition cut. It supposedly has an extra 7 minutes of footage not available when it ran, in it's brief, 3-day theatrical release.
