  1. In the Name of God (1)

    Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds (2) Merciful (3) the owner of the Day of Judgment (4) Beware of worship and you we use (5) Show us the straight path (6) the path of those who bestowed on them is wrath not gone astray (7)

  2. Wild Wild West was one of the worst films I’ve ever seen. And it only made (some) money because they used that to sneak into the South Park movie.

  3. I’m really happy he did The Wild Wild West. Keanu killed that one and Smith did a really enjoyable movie with Kevin Kline. Would not have wanted it otherwise.

  4. the Wild wild west was watchable, he really has no reason to hate it so much. And the drum dance in the Fresh Prince… Well, I have to re-watch that sh!t now

  5. I don't know. Wild Wild West the movie might have sucked, but the song he made for the soundtrack was great. Whereas, the first Matrix was great, but the other two weren't.

  6. kids, don’t bungie jump. rather do sky diving. it’s much safer and better for your body. bungie jumping is a massive shock to your whole system n way too risky

  7. Here are some ways to connect Will to Kevin Bacon:
    1. Will Smith was in Bad Boys with Martin Lawrence, who was in Wild Hogs with Tim Allen, who was in Toy Story with Tom Hanks, who was in Apollo 13 with Kevin Bacon.
    2. Will Smith was in Wild Wild West with Kevin Kline, who was in A Fish Called Wanda with Jamie Lee Curtis, who was in Trading Places with Dan Aykroyd, who was in The Blues Brothers with John Belushi, who was in Animal House with Kevin Bacon.
    3. Will Smith was in Men in Black with Rip Torn, who was in Dodgeball with Ben Stiller, who was in Tropic Thunder with Tom Cruise, who was in A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon.
    Those are just a few.

  8. This is the most down-to-earth interview I've seen in a while! I always feel like Will is a chill guy, but then when I see him I just like him even more.

  9. Imagine Neo doing those witty one-liners like Will did in ALL the action films he did at that time? Would have ruined the feel of the film with that dark, post-apocalyptic, psuedo-noir tension. Yeah, I've got time for Will but thank God Keanu got that part.

  10. A chopper bungee is really only special compared to an ordinary bungee jump in the sense that it costs a fortune (for ordinary people). Other than that, its all the same. 🤷🏻‍♂️

  11. Funny Barack is not the one, nor is this shapeshifter Bob Marley / Osama Bin Laden. Yeah I know you know I know
