I was so nonstop busy yesterday and got home so late, that I saved this for today to give it the proper recognition..........shoutout to the 40th anniversary of the movie that truly kickstarted the Hollywood superhero movement. With big lavish movies like ‘Batman v Superman’ and ‘Infinity War’ dropping left and right these days, it’s easy to forget what a next level production that ‘Superman: The Movie’ was. A comic book character, even one as big as Superman, was still considered a pretty niche property back then. It could’ve been a disaster, but the pieces all came together to create something magical.....thanks, in no small part, to Christopher Reeve’s inimitable, perfect performance as the Man of Steel. 4 decades on and still my favorite live action representation of the character. Does the movie still hold up??? Ehhhhh yes and no. But it’s never lost it’s charm, and it’s influence is still being felt to this day. I mean......Jesus Christ.....we’re getting a Shazam movie in a few months. Shazam. We owe it all to ‘Superman: The Movie.’ Respect. ✊🏻
So after seeing them in stores and a few people on here that collect them, I finally started a vinyl soundtrack collection because I love these limited colored discs. I ordered some more from Mondo so hopefully they’ll be here soon!
Oh wow I am stoked! In 1995 I read about a film called Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre in Fangoria and got very excited to see it. Due to studio problems after a limited theatrical run the movie was shelved. A few years later it appeared on home video bearing the title Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation. And it wasn’t very good. In fact it was nowhere near the movie I had read about. I found out years later that the version released on home video had been cut up from the original version. I never thought I would see the original, well thanks to Scream Factory I have and this is a completely different feeling film. One I would actually recommend! One that changed my rating of this movie from a 3 to an 8. This is the only version I will ever watch after I watch the inferior cut one more time to compare notes. So cool to live in a time that someone deemed this worthy to track down and release. Pick it up if you get a chance. #texaschainsawmassacre#thereturnofthetexaschainsawmassacre#texaschainsawmassacrethenextgeneration#reneezellweger#matthewmcconaughey#leatherface#screamfactory#bluray#fangoria
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 🕷🕸 Man, I loved this movie. Everything about this movie is just spectacular (pun intended). Eye-popping, unique, and absolutely gorgeous visuals. Well rounded and well written characters that you just can't help but fall in love with. All of the voice actors are just fantastic here and they were cast perfectly. Awesome soundtrack with a killer score to boast aswell! This movie is just a blast from start to finish and a total visual feast. Such a heart-felt and fun story that perfectly balances its emotions and has perfectly placed humor, with an emotionally resonant message for everyone. There's a great after-credits scene and a touching tribute to Stan Lee and Steve Ditko that's just beautiful. This is hands down my favorite Spidey movie yet and one of my favorite films of the year! Do yourself a favor and see this movie, you won't regret it! Thanks for reading.
#SpiderManIntotheSpiderVerse is a perfect film. or as close to perfect as you can come in a film. it only opened this weekend and it has already became my favorite comic book film of all time, surpassing #BlackPanther , #MarvelstheAvengers , the first #Deadpool , and #CaptainAmericatheWinterSoldier . that’s how dang good this film is. the animation is gorgeous. it is a comic book brought to life! the characters are full of personality. each and every spidey is full of heart and have their own unique traits. the film is very comics accurate and captures the heart of the characters and the viewers. this film is emotional, full of laughs, and harbors spectacular action scenes. i’ve seen this film twice already and i will see this at least once or twice more in theaters and several more times once released on #BluRay . GO SEE THIS FILM! Review date: 12/16/18. #spiderman#theblogofmovies
