Sam Raimi’s Original Concept Make-Up Test For The Green Goblin Was Beyond Rad…   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

green goblin 1999 conceptartconcept 1999 greengoblinAlmost always in film making before any image makes in front of a camera  there are many many variations in design and ideas that will create the over all best look for a particular character. When coming to comic character translations there are so many wacky outfits and  visuals that might seem like they would be very difficult to portray as realistic or serious in anyway . In 2002 Sam Raimi gave us our first taste of a super budgeted Spider-man film, jumping the gun a bit and mixing up continuity in this origin Spidey story, The Green Goblin appears as the first villain. There has been a lot of rumors that circulated that the original Goblin costume was so utterly cool and shocking that it out shined Spidey duds to the point the studio actually asked the director to take another route on the design. Now finally we can see the test video from the FX company for what Raimi had originally envisioned for one of Marvels greatest villain. This shit below is so dam sick I so wish the studio had got on board. Enjoy

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned

Extremely Interesting Mind Blowing Doc On Kubrick Brings To Light Another Story Buried Deep In The Shining. An Absolute Must See Says The Cult Of Kubrick..   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

Here is a documentary film that encompasses three things I find more than fascinating, Stanley Kubrick, The Shining and conspiracy stories. I saw Jay Weidner’s film “Kubrick’s Odyssey part 1” a little over a year ago and finally found it online for free for all to experience. I feel he brings some interesting and thoughtful theories and ideas to the table on the late great director/film maker Stanley Kubrick and reasoning behind the many choices the director made in his films and in life. The only thing for you to do is dive into the film and most importantly, KEEP AN OPEN MIND and watch all the way through before judging content. I think some of my film friends will really dig it ( especially you Terry)

You can get this film on DVD on Amazon or through Jay Weidner’s website http://www.jayweidner.com/ if you feel the need to support or own the material. I will post Part 2 soon; dealing primarily with the meaning and importance of Kubrick’s 1968  2001: A Space Odyssey, that one is 100% bang on as far as I am concerned.

LONG LIVE THE CULT OF KUBRICK
