A Great Day For Marty Mcfly Fans. It’s Official, Hot Toys To Do Back To The Future 1/6 Scale Line.   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

A few months ago this popped up online hinting that Hot Toys was on the verge of announcing having rights to the Back To The Future license. There was much speculation that it might be a fan made teaser and the prospect of actually getting high quality licensed 1/6 BTTF figure was a huge pipe dream for fans.

Then this pic was posted a week ago that shows  the Hot Toys 2012/2013 catalog and we see that Back To The Future is officially in the game for 1/6 scale now. I’d be in for a Marty, Doc and 1/6 scale Delorean most definitely. If they really go to town and actually make the Delorean I foresee some exploding heads in the collector geek community. We can only all dream at this point, good news at any rate though.

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.

Kubrick’s First Feature Film “Fear and Desire” Finally Has A Release Date For The First Time Ever On Any Video Format. The Cult Of Kubrick Rejoices Yet Again.   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

It was reported a few months ago that Kino Lorber would be releasing Stanley Kubrick’s earliest unreleased works to HD in the fall, and the first Blu-Ray finally has a release date:

Stanley Kubrick’s first feature, Fear and Desire, along with The Seafarers streets October 23rd for all you Kubrick-files out there like me.

Lorber has released a restoration comparison for Stanley Kubrick’s 1953 Fear And Desire.  It was recently restored by the Library of Congress and mastered in HD from 35mm archival elements.

Just the fact that we get films like this from Kino in HD is pretty amazing. A long hole in my collection can finally be filled with an official fully restored release. Strong strong work.

With any luck we might  get a good doc on the disc and some interesting special feature as well. Info to follow as it comes in.

LONG LIVE THE CULT OF KUBRICK.

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.
