I usually avoid these people, they are filed under "Oh no, not that wanker" but I thought it's on Prime so why not. There's a series on there called Manhattan about the first atomic bomb and it's worth a look.
I'll see your list of shit actors and raise you Matt Goss. I heard him deliver this classic line while lying ill on the sofa unable to reach the remote. The film was a two bob version of Lord Of The Rings on some shite channel. The premise was that to defeat the bad guys the good guy had to find the chalice of the phoenix and get it down his neck. The immortal dialogue occurred when he told a group of followers " I am on a quest to drink from the fiery cup"..fantastic. I imagined the blokes he recruited earlier saying "I thought he said furry when we joined, I'm going back home"
I'm pleased to say that I haven't a clue who Matt Goss is - it's going to stay that way!
When I read your '...find the chalice of the phoenix and get it down his neck' line, I have to admit that I thought, God that's a BIG mouth to fit a chalice down his neck - but of course its the contents not the actual cup, having said that tho' some of these guys/films are SO shit-poor anything is likely!!
I CONSTANTLY wonder who funds these hopelessly rubbish things?
AND then I imagine the 'pitch' that the maker [or whoever] comes up with...
'Yeah - I'm seeing a big golden chalice and the guy has to swallow it to find the [insert improbable object here]'
'Yeah GREAT Bob [it's always Bob] - but don't you mean the stuff IN the chalice?'
'No no no Tony, [also, ALWAYS Tony] - it's the actual chalice - y'see he's a Pelican!! Aha, Yes, you didn't see that coming did you??'
'BRILLIANT Bob - how much do you want'
Blah blah blah.
