Last year Johnny Knoxville, (he of Jackass fame), produced and starred in a movie called Action Point, a film based on a true story involving the establishment of one of the single most insane and dangerous amusement parks in American History.
Apparently after watching a 2013 documentary about Action Park, based in New Jersey, Knoxville was so inspired by the story that he felt compelled to make a comedy about it. Putting the laughs to one side it now appears that the entire story of Action Park was far more serious as the new documentary Class Action Park: The World’s Most Dangerous Amusement Park details.
The documentary synopsis states:
During its 1980s heyday, New Jersey’s Action Park was known as the world’s most dangerous amusement park. It was as a lawless land, ruled by drunk teenage employees and frequented by drunker teenage guests. The rides ignored basic notions of physics, common sense, and safety. The end result lay somewhere between Lord of the Flies and a Saw movie. But despite countless injuries and deaths, Action Park is looked back at fondly as an insane—but insanely fun—rite of passage. The scars it left? Badges of honor. Class Action Park is the first-ever feature documentary to explore a place that has long since entered the realm of myth. The film peels away the trappings of nostalgia to reveal the shocking truth behind the park and its genius madman founder.
The documentary has yet to confirm a release date but you can keep up-to-date with the production by visiting it’s main website HERE

I have an appreciation for Adam Sandler. Not so much an appreciation of his many asinine comedies, (although his recent Netflix stand-up special was excellent), but an appreciation for an actor who can seamlessly switch from hilarious Happy Gilmore to pious Punch Drunk Love.
His latest venture looks extremely promising as he plays a dodgy, jeweller to the rich and famous who has to find a way to pay his debts when his merchandise is taken from one of his top sellers and girlfriend. Early word suggests Sandler’s performance could net him an award with rave reviews at various film festivals.
Uncut Gems is written and directed by the Safdie Brothers whose previous venture Good Time, which starred Robert Pattinson, was an excellent, dark crime noir story and one of the best films of 2017.
Uncut Gems is scheduled for release on December 13th.
Former NFL player Tyler Schmitt has edited together a stunning 8K time lapse video of the changes in weather across America’s Great Plains.
Schmitt, now a full-time photographer has captured some truly breathtaking images in his short film entitled ‘From Drakness to Light’. You can see some more of Schmitt’s work over on his main website HERE.
Here’s footage of a bizarre snake-like object swirling about the night sky above Ravenna in Italy.
The origins of the video are still unknown except that is was uploaded to a Gamer’s YouTube channel M89_Gamer last month. The footage shows a definite UFO as it remains unidentified and as of yet nobody can offer up a logical explanation.
Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger recently paid tribute to his best friend Franco Columbu, who died on Friday after taking unwell whilst swimming and drowned.
Columbu, (78), was a two time former Mr Olympia and had been Arnie’s best friend since 1965. Taking to social media the Hollywood star posted his thoughts on his friend’s sudden passing:
In news which shocked the film fan community it appears that the much talked about Breaking Bad spin-off movie, has completed filming and is now in the can.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Bob Odenkirk, who played crooked lawyer Saul Goodman in the original series and in the prequel series Better Call Saul, let slip that the production had wrapped and all footage was now complete.
He said: “I don’t know what people know and don’t know…I find it hard to believe you don’t know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They’ve done an amazing job of keeping it a secret.”
It is testament to series creator Vince Gilligan and his fabled attention to detail that nobody leaked information about the shoot. Not a single picture of any of the actors on set found it’s way online and there are no details about the film’s plot, except we know it focuses on Aaron Paul’s character Jessie Pinkman. It looks like Breaking Bad fans will have to wait until next year to find out if Walter White returns, once the movie is released on Netflix.
