Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. We all know that Elvis was probably the worst singer ever to appear on the silver screen, but who are the best & worst according to ARRSE?
  2. Clint Eastwood's 'I Talk To The Trees' from the 1970 film Paint Your Wagon was pretty dire. It was B side to Lee Marvin's number one hit, 'Wandrin' Star'. I remember hearing it on the radio as a 4 year old while living in a London tower block.
  3. Panda,

    You have just stolen my thunder. I totally agree.
  4. It's OK Josey, your thunder is in my pants and is being well looked after.
  5. Donner und Blitz mit shitz mein kleine shatz ?
  6. Pierce Brosnan in Mama Mia.........noooooooooooooo !
  7. Madonna. How the hell does that donkey keep getting film scripts? Terrible singer and absolutely god-awful actor.
  8. Trini Lopez in the Dirty Dozen - 'Lemon Tree' oh my good God.......aaaaarrrrgh!

    Kirk Douglas playing a fecking accordion and singing 'A Whale of a Tale' in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.......Jeeeeeeessssssssuuuuuussss.

    Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. Nice accent mate.
  10. An obscure one but Molly Ringwald ( the ginger one from the breakfast club & pretty in pink) singing the american national anthem in Steven King's "The Stand" . She also attempts to sing at other times as she probably felt she was the most famous celebrity in the 'made for tv' movie.

    As I said, obscure but unfortunately memorable. As is the rest of the film :?
  11. Shite film and shite song sung by Richard Harris in Gulliver's Travels. It's an animated film and the cartoons look like they were drawn by Ray Charles.
  12. Pained though I am to say it as I am a fan, but Prince in Under the Cherry Moon.I would even stretch to Purple Rain aswell.......
  13. I can't believe I forgot 'Marky' Mark Walberg. Now, I like boogie nights as much as the next person but, Perfect Storm???? He tends to be quite wooden in his performance ( harking back to boogie nights there fnar fnar ). Went to see The Happening recently but unfortunately/fortunately was on call and didn't see the end of the film. Possibly a good thing.

    I stand by Three Kings though but only because George Cloony is in it. :wink:
  14. ID your avatar just reminded me - Sean Connery in 'Darby O' Gill and the Little People'. Who persuaded him that a song would be intricate to the plot?
