From the 'Daily Mail' headline:

"I want a pinball machine!" Sandra Bullock calls out Warner Bros as she reveals the film company gifted all her MALE co-stars in Demolition Man a themed arcade game - and not her

Surely Sandra deserves a Demo Man pin too!!

I suppose if anybody deserves to look at that translite day after day, it's her.

#3 9 months ago

Rob Schneider didn't get one. Or Denis Leary. Or Andy Richter.

Let's all pitch in and get her one. I volunteer to set it up for her.

The Hulk got a free pin...why not Sandy!?!??

Secondary thought...maybe her agent was an asscrack and didn’t ask for one??

I'm in if you can get her to come to my house to pick it up!

#7 9 months ago

Maybe see if she and her actor friends should push STERN, JJ, SPOOKY, AP or Homepin for an Oceans 8 pinball ?
Would you buy one?
Yay or Nay?

Seconded. Though Dacre (editor) is due to be replaced with someone (Greig) much more liberal, later in the year ... so hopefully things may finally change.

#12 9 months ago

I agree that she should get one. But why are you bringing it up now? 25 years later?? Sounds like some other movements ....

I want to know if she ever told Stallone how to use "The Three Shells"

I went to Ocean’s 8. I knew it was in the genre of the Ocean’s movies, but with a female cast. That was all I knew.

I hate current Sandra Bullock, so as I found out she was the star, I was bummin. I didn’t enjoy any of the movie. And really I spent half of it thinking how unnatural Sandra’s face looks now. I’ve seen more natural CGI than her current face. The rest of the movie I was having stray thoughts of Cate Blanchett’s plastic surgery.

Learn how to age gracefully bitches. Don’t go slicing up your faces to try to look young, because you end up looking gross. Spend that money on a pinball machine instead. There, I killed two birds with that stone.

Nay.

#14 9 months ago

If she explains what the 3 sea shells are she can have mine.

#15 9 months ago

Seriously, does someone on here personally know Roger Sharpe or Gary Stern and let them know of this great opportunity for pinball to get exposure. If Stern could gift a DM pinball and a new pinball (like IMDN) to her with national media coverage this could be great. Broadcast video of Sandra playing DM and a new game and Gary telling the world pinball is back could be great exposure. I'm sure Roger has her agent's phone number at his fingertips and could work something out.

I really like that idea - perfect PR opp

Give her Lou Ferrigno's game.

#19 9 months ago

Otaku should donate his Sky Jump with a Free Fall backglass machine to her from his collection of games. Or is it a Free Fall with a Sky Jump glass? Who cares?

#20 9 months ago

WB did her a favor. Demo Man is a turd.

#21 9 months ago

Give me a break. She could buy Stern ( the company) and she is whining over not getting gifted a machine worth a couple of grand then and now. Why is it the richest people always want shit for free?

#22 9 months ago

I bet she got a nice scented basket of Demolition Man toiletries though....including the three shells.

why does everything have to get people so upset. it was some puff piece interview where she was just trying to share a funny story from back in the day.

no need to turn that into class warfare... particularly on a website dedicated to products that are many thousands of dollars. 'a couple grand' is not chump change for a huge % of planet.

#25 9 months ago

I would bet money she said this as a joke.

Not mad at all. I think it's funny too. That is the problem with text, it's hard to discern tone. I was just being sarcastic.

When Demolition Man came out Sandra Bullock was NOT a big star yet, but Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes were. I remember seeing the movie and thinking it was the first time I'd seen her. IMO Demolition Man was a key movie to make Sandra Bullock popular -> not the other way around. That's why they didn't buy her a pinball machine.

Here are ALL the movies she appeared in before Demolition Man:
- Hangmen -- Sandra's acting debut - Rotten Tomatoes (RM) has a 5% liked
- A Fool and His Money - direct-to-video
- Who Shot Patakango - direct-to-video
- Love Potion No. 9 - RM rating: 27%
- The Vanishing - RM rating: 47%
- When the Party's Over - RM rating: 31%
- The Thing Called Love - RM rating 57%

Every single movie she appeared prior to Demo Man has a "Splat" rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Because her three male counterparts got free games and her face is on the translite with Sly and Snipes.

Idk, sounds like backtracking.

#30 9 months ago

Maybe the Pinball Expo or other show could invite Sandra to the show for an autograph signing and then present her with a with a Demo Man pinball machine?

#31 9 months ago

Btw, is it just me or is she way more attractive now then she was when she made that movie? She is really ageing well.

#33 9 months ago
Quoted from FalconPunch:

Still don't know how they work

Another reason to invite Sandra to a pinball show as the star guest. Do a Q/A and then present her with a Demo Man pin.

She seems bitchy. Probly why she didn't get one. I could be wrong.

Quoted from mrossman5:

I know. I'm just pointing out that not ALL of her male co-stars received one, that's all.

Yeah, she's probably joking, but these kinds of jokes always have some truth behind it.

She was third billed in the movie. She's on the machine. And she doesn't get a movie but her lower-billed male co-star Bratt gets one? I'd feel slighted too.

Quoted from DaveH:

Learn how to age gracefully bitches. Don’t go slicing up your faces to try to look young, because you end up looking gross. Spend that money on a pinball machine instead. There, I killed two birds with that stone.
Nay.

The majority of movie stars over the age of 30 have had plenty of work done. I've never heard you complaining about Mel Gibsons' bad hair transplant or Sly Stallone's bad dye job and numerous facelifts? He ain't a movie star but any thoughts on Tom Brady's hair? Trust me it ain't genes that give him that luxurious mop. Come to think of it, isn't it some kind of small miracle that almost EVERY male star in hollywood has a nice head of hair and facial skin stretched tighter than a drum?

So why pick on the chicks?

Moral of story, is that Sandra Bullock is the hottest 53 year old woman on the planet. Jesse James screwed up lol

I don't think Brad got a pinball. That's just sloppy reporting by the journalist. If you watch the video, the only thing Sandra said was "all my male co-stars got a game". She did not say who those co-stars were, but the journalist extrapolated "all" to include Brad, who was not that popular at the time of the movie.

After Sylvester and Wesley got their games, Sandra should have been next in line.

She brought it up because during an interview with her costar she was asked if she ever had an action figure made of her and she replied, no but I am on a pinball machine. It came up pretty naturally in the conversation.

Funny you mention this. I happened to be watching Ellen and she was a guest. She's a big fan of something called a penis facial. It's a real thing, and not what you think. They inject an extract from Korean baby foreskins in the face to generate collagen and elastin.

She's on the damn game. She should have gotten a damn game!!! If we all need to endure that hideous translite with all three top-billed stars equally represented, she could at least get what's coming to her!

I'm with Sandra!!! (and I think she still looks great)

I don't see anything wrong with any of them getting work done regardless of their sex. I never really understood why some people bag on anybody trying to make themselves look or feel better. The double standard is clearly alive and well, but if you're in the limelight and can get some work tastefully done, then I say go for it.

I actually did hear of this before. The Koreans are known for their plastic surgery, so maybe they're on to something, but i think I'll pass.

I'm going to blow you guys.... Away! With this simple explanation.

Demo Man came out before Speed.

Wow, that was easy.

But she wasn't a "top-billed star" at the time of the movie - she was up and coming, and Demo Man was the first good/bigger movie she was in.
She does still look great though.
