Out-Of-Print 16mm 1975 / Robbie Benson film catalog.

                             


"Holy Sonnet X" 
Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for, thou art not so, For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow, Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me. From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures bee, Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow, And soonest our best men with thee doe goe, Rest of their bones, and souls deliverie. Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men, And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell, And poppie, or charmes can make us sleepe as well, And better than thy stroake; why swell'st thou then; One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally, And death shall be no more, Death, thou shalt die. Bye.

Original 1971 Marketing Ad for, 'Panic In Needle Park'



Notice that Griffin Dunne's dad author Dominick Dunne produced this movie (before he started following and documenting true-crime trial hearings after the death of his own daughter). 

So, Bane will be the next 007.



Actor Tom Hardy has confirmed interest in playing James Bond – by refusing to discuss the matter. Speaking to the Daily Beast, Hardy was keen to express enthusiasm at the interviewer’s suggestion Inception director Christopher Nolan take over the franchise. “Oh, wow, Chris would be amazing!” said Hardy. “Wow, that would be cool. That would be so cool.” When pressed, Hardy ducked the question of his taking over the mantle from current 007 Daniel Craig by making reference to a conspiracy of silence among contenders.


007 vocal rehearsals may looksound like this ...
"Shaken, not stirred."

Classic Original Soundtrack by Queen- Flash Gordon



Let's not forget that Queen's guitarist Brian May did the original MAD MAX soundtrack, too. Both are very different approaches to very popcorn-type movies. Subtle details throughout the emotional swelling and guitar screams. Excellent woven moodscaping using 9-volt battery guitar pedal effects, something that I feel Jimmy Page nailed in his Death Wish 2 score. Nowadays (except for Hans Zimmer and Trent Reznor) not a whole lot of interesting film score approaches happening with big movie productions, as they are unfortunately more focused - and paid hefty- on the big giant 3 second 'boom' scares. yawn = boring. bye.

Location: No drones allowed


    

Happy Friday the 13th Day !


TGIF 13th is always a splash with the Vorhees family.

Joseph Fiennes cast as Michael Jackson in UK series.

Fiennes stars with Stockard Channing as Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox as Marlon Brando in "Urban Myths," a series of "tru ... ish" stories including a fabled one in which the three stars supposedly took a cross-country road trip together after 9/11. Paris Jackson said she also took offense at the portrayal of Taylor, a good friend of her father's and her godmother. "It angers me to see how obviously intentional it was for them to be this insulting, not just towards my father, but my godmother Liz as well," Jackson tweeted. "Where is the respect," she added. "They worked through blood sweat and tears for ages to create such profound and remarkable legacies. Shameful portrayal."

THE UK TV TRAILER, LOL LUV IT...

Looks like perfect comedy casting to me. bye.

p.s. UK just banned the episode since the Paris Jackson blasted the casting, so now the irony is that this film's physical whereabouts and digital ownership will be the new 'urban myth.' Life IS stranger than fiction and stranger than any of those 3 certifiable crazy folks riding in that car.


BuzzFeed Trumps more ways than one.

Less is more, subtle is everything - re: editing

sub·tle
ˈsədl/

adjective
  1. (especially of a change or distinction) so delicate or precise as to be difficult to analyze or describe to people who live out in Coney Island- cause their way of life is way too far out there for them to 'get it'.


    "his language expresses rich and subtle meanings"
    synonyms:fine, fine-drawn, nice, hair-splitting not spitting
    "subtle distinctionss(sic)"
    • (of a mixture or effect if using an effects pedal) delicately complex and understated.


      "subtle lighting"

      synonyms:understatedmuted, boring yes, subduedMore


    • making use of clever and indirect methods to achieve something, this sounds right.


      "he tried a more subtle approach and said 'bye' "

Campos' Christine ain't no Plymouth Fury.








Film Synopsis : Christine is an ambitious news reporter, in Sarasota, FL, circa 1974. Relentlessly motivated to succeed, she knows she has talent, but being a driven career woman in the 1970s comes with its own challenges, especially when competition for a promotion, love for a coworker and a tumultuous home life lead to a dissolution of self. With ratings in the cellar, the station manager issues a mandate to deliver juicier and more exploitative stories, a story firmly at odds with Christine’s serious brand of issue-based journalism. To accomplish her goals, she must overcome her self-doubt and give the people what they want.

Christine's last tv news broadcast recorded on film and on dead air has been missing for decades and is considered to be a 'holy grail'. 3-2-1-BYE.


Unfortunately, nope. Not yet.

Krull- a movie that is so crazy, so bad, yet so adventurously 'inventive' that it deserves that posthumous trophy of being an instant classic. I wonder if actor Liam Neeson wants his colleagues to know this was one of his first. I hope so. bye.
