10 Movies You Definitely Never Realized Were Made By Famous Directors

- Page 1

There are certain directors in Hollywood that everybody just seems to know, whether it's from putting out a string of amazing movies, or maybe because they can't seem to put out a single good one. In the case of these 10 huge names though, they each seem to have released at least one that everyone forgets about.

James Cameron - Piranha II: The Spawning

Everybody has to start their career somewhere, and before he was king of the world thanks to movies like Terminator, Aliens, Titanic and Avatar, Cameron got his start directing this schlocky sequel to a B-grade monster movie.

George Lucas - THX 1138

Lucas flexed his sci-fi muscles a full six years before Star Wars changed cinema forever, with this bizarre and unsettling (but beautifully shot) bit of dystopia. It never made it past being a cult hit, but the "THX" name endured as the name of LucasFilm's premium sound technology.

Steven Spielberg - Duel

Before Jaws greated the concept of a summer blockbuster, Spielberg made this TV movie of a driver being attacked by a mysterious truck driver who attempts to run him off the road. It's tense, adrenaline-fueled, and a lot of fun to watch.

John Carpenter - Starman

Best-known for classic horror movies like Halloween and The Thing, as well as excellent bits of 80s cheese like Escape From New York and Big Trouble In Little China, Carpenter really stepped out of his comfort zone with this sci-fi romance starring Jeff Bridges as an alien who falls in love on Earth.

These next few movies have some pretty surprising directors...

But suddenly, his career seemed to get a little bit out of control. The quality of the movies wasn't up to snuff. There were no more hits like George of the Jungle or The Mummy, instead we


Curse Of 'The Mummy' - How The Classic Film Nearly Wiped Out Its Cast

If any movie proves that "they just don't make 'em like they used to," it's The Mummy.That's the The Mummy - as in the box office smash of 1999, to avoid any confusion with certain other films bearing the same name.The mystical adventure had action, laughs, and special effects that look amazing to this day - and they should, because they cost $150,000 per shot.While The Mummy gave audiences chills, making the movie was just as frightening for its cast. From the very beginning of the shoot, to the movie's premiere, it seems like the film's


I've Only Just Realized All Disney Princesses Are Missing A Body Part And I'm Bothered

During my childhood, there was never a moment I didn't wish I was a Disney princess. While I was partial to Belle, I felt a deep investment to all of the characters, who made me believe in happily-ever-afters. Growing up, I had watched each movie at least a dozen times, but I never realized something was missing, particularly, a body part.This isn't the only time the princesses have shared key attributes, as it was previously uncovered why they are predominately seen dressed in blue.DisneyIt's also interesting to note that most of their mothers have either passed away or
