Cogerson, avi or AVI is a video file format for computer systems, like MKV, WMV and MPEG. You have heard of Quicktime absolutely Apple film trailers in quicktime No I’m not talking another language! 😉
I’m shocked Remo hasn’t been re-optioned for more huge display shenanigans, drawback is if I remember the movie the hero didn’t use guns, his physique was his weapon and he may dodge bullets. At this time’s younger moviegoers weaned on violent computer video games might not accept a hero who does not have an uzi in every hand and a bazooka strapped to his back.
I’m sure your copy of the Deluge could be very rare….I have never even heard of avi format. As for Males in Black II that film was so forgettable I do not really remember something about it apart from it was really really dangerous and really brief.

Hahaha, wow, I thought I was the only one who remembered “Remo Williams: The Journey Begins!”
Cogerson, I’ve a murky grainy copy of Deluge on avi format, where I obtained it from I can’t remember but it is rare. It in all probability by no means will get shown on Television. I would not be surprised if youtube has the entire movie for viewing.
Males in Black II was one other I did not include, I could not get a very good shot of the statue.
RedElf, thanks for commenting. I’ve never learn the books, The Destroyer collection, there were over a hundred titles final time I looked!!

Funny! At the very least three of us noticed Remo Williams – it was on late-late one night when I was babysitting… what can I say. The books had been better. Great hub!
I had to lookup Deluge as I had by no means even heard of the movie earlier than your hub. As for Batman Eternally, I have no recollection of that scene, granted it has been many years since I have seen the film. The rest of the films you talked about I vividly remember each of them.
I agree with you about Splash you barely see the Statue of Liberty….and there were a lot better issues to look at in that scene.
Cogerson, Optimus, Cyndi10, thanks for the feedback, they are appreciated.
Cogerson, a hub gallery on Lady Liberty was overdue even when she is proven battered or frozen or submerged and her head used as a football by invading monsters. 🙂
I did go away a couple of films out, Splash was one among them, the one shot I wanted to use from that film was Daryl Hannah out of the sea and nekkid but you can barely see the statue (who groaned ).
Optimus (I’ll bet that’s not your real name!) I was a fan of Remo in my video renting days, Fred Ward as Remo and Joel Gray as Chiun made an excellent team. Shame there wasn’t a sequel.
Cindy, hi, Saboteur is price watching, it has one among Hitchcock’s favourite themes, an innocent man on the run from the cops and trying to catch the actual perpetrators.

Hiya, nice visuals of the Statue of Liberty. Good research to find those. I assume the Statue is just like the watch, Timex I consider it is – she “takes a licking and keeps on ticking.” My favorite scene is Independence Day. It seemed so claustrophobic with the ship blocking nearly all the pieces. Because of you and Cogerson, I’m going to look at Saboteur before the week is out. Thanks for sharing the article.

nice hub!!!! remo williams i thought i was the only one who saw that film lol

Wow I had no concept that the Statue of Liberty had been such an important part of so many movies. I’d say my favorites are from the Planet of the Apes….and what a manner to finish a film….as it allows the audience to figure out the ending simply as Charlton Heston is studying the truth as nicely….probably the greatest endings ever….I still don’t understand the Tim Burton ending of his Planet of the Apes.
Remo Williams….I like how they took one thing that was really occurring(the touch up job she was getting in actual life) and included it in a movie. Remo Williams was directed by the identical guy that directed many James Bond movies and the hope was it would begin a new franchise….The name is Williams, Remo Williams…simply doesn’t have the same ring to it.
And rounding out my third favorite can be Hitchcock’s Saboteur…an important finale and one he would repeat in North by Northwest.
Very attention-grabbing about the poster for Escape To New York and Cloverfield….it appears that evidently the producers of Cloverfield did use the poster as an inspiration…..which seeing the top of the Statue of Liberty bouncing down the street in Cloverfield is one in all the better elements of that film.
A very fascinating and enjoyable hub that you’ve created, Steve. Voted up fascinating and helpful…..did the film Splash have a Statue of Liberty scene….oh never mind that’s movie that stars the actor we don’t point out….lol.
Thanks Rob, glad you preferred it.

Fun thought for a hub. You reminded me of plenty of scenes I would forgotten about. Nice analysis. Great footage.
Hey thanks Jools, this hub idea popped into my head late last evening and i rushed to complete it while I used to be still interested by it. One other day and I’d have discovered something else to do. 🙂
The thought got here from screenshot quizzes I used to compile on my old film forum, the place the cheap stone island baseball cap screenshots would have a selected matter and members needed to guess which films they got here from… aah memories.

Steve, really attention-grabbing hub and the photographs are wonderful. Off to read your Nice Escape hub now, how’d I miss it I am getting some weirs ‘unfollow’ stuff happening over the previous couple of days, I’ve most likely pressed the incorrect key somewhere…voted up!
Thanks for commenting Rain Defence, much appreciated.
Fron what I’ve read the statue is hollow with a steel framework, her pores and skin is manufactured from copper!

The humorous factor about a number of these pictures is that in a few of the films the place she has been knocked over, someway the crown spikes have turn out to be bent. How that might occur to stone I don’t know!
I like articles like this.
Sure they’re always knocking her down but she’s always up, prepared and composed for the subsequent movie, what a pro!
Thanks for commenting Acer, it’s appreciated amigo.

The Majestic Gray Lady appears to take a licking however she sure does fill a scene…she’s a terrific actress…Oscar!Oscar!.;-))
Howdy Flora, hmmm I know it’s not Cloverfield… let me see aah it is Ghostbusters no wait.. Saboteeeuur. Love that ending with Lloyd hanging over the torch, his sleeve tearing…

Hmmm. I wonder which use of The Statue of Liberty you point out is my favourite…..hmmm. Hahaha. 🙂 I believe we all know. It could be my favorite even for those who hadn’t mentioned it.
I admire you visiting my hub of Liberty. 🙂

Great photographs and references. Thanks!
No problem. They hoped that viewers would see the resemblance to the Escape cheap stone island baseball cap poster. So you probably did. lol

Thanks for that little bit of info Nickalooch! I was wondering about that.
And thanks YadiraE.

Attention-grabbing hub! The Statue of Liberty is the perfect image to indicate in motion pictures to inform the viewer where the scene is going down.

the part in Cloverfield was impressed by Escape from New York.JJ Abrams and the director pointed that out after the first trailer i consider
