A Really Awesome Funky 1982 Convention Featurette On Blade Runner I’ve Never Seen Has Popped Up Online.   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

One of the Blade Runner Convention Reels with vintage interviews with Ridley Scott, Syd Mead and Douglas Trumbull about making Blade Runner universe has popped up online. This 16 mm featurette, was made by M. K. Productions in 1982, is specifically produced to circulate through various American fantasy, horror and science fiction conventions.

I guess the people at the time only had the budget left to license some classic porn music, even for ’82 the shit is way outdated. Pretty fun to see how much marketing aspect has changed in the film industry. I always love to see anything on Blade Runner I haven’t seen before, this has some good stuff in it for sure

Excited To See Director Paul Tomas Anderson Back With A Trailer For His Latest, “The Master”   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

I love me some Paul Thomas Anderson films from Hard Eight, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch Drunk Love to There Will be Blood. All have a grasp of the film medium that far surpasses someone of only 41 years of age, and they only get better with repeat viewings. Every time PT Anderson makes a picture I’m there to take in the pure and utter genius and PT Anderson-ness of the whole situation, and on October 12 th I’ll be in the theaters once again for the sure to be great “The Master”. First look at the teaser type trailer below, enjoy.

For a better idea of what story is in store, here’s the IMDB synopsis : A 1950s-set drama centered on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as “the Master” whose faith-based organization begins to catch on in America, and a young drifter who becomes his right-hand man.

From the reports I’ve heard and read it seems like this is really about L Ron Hubbard And Scientology loosely, so it will be very interesting how it is received in Hollywood. Super excited to see a new PT Anderson flick in the fall, always a treat I’m up for.

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.

Dark Knight Rises Posters Remind Us Avengers Isn’t The Only Epic Comic Movie This Summer. A Fire Will Rise Apparently   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

The, I’m hoping is beyond epic, Dark Knight Rises due in theaters on July 20th which marks the end of director Christopher Noland’s involvement in the world of the capped crusader along with Batman himself Christian Bale. I’m filled with lots of excitement to see Tom Hardy’s portrayal of the super villian Bane. Crazy shit is bound to happen in this film, as I know the writers are very knowledgeable in the Batman world and only one thing should happen to end this trilogy and story.

Can’t wait to see the film in IMAX and witness what could possibly be the first really great third movie in one timeline in DC film history. We all know it’ll be better than the last two attempts anyway.

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.
