a few weeks ago i bought King Kong on blu ray. it is amazing, everything from the picture to the sound is so clear. the extra features are incredible, it is so interesting to learn how this movie was made and how much work went into making it. if you are a fan in anyway of King Kong pick it up on blu ray. it even comes with a little booklet.

Saw this at a few Conventions in the early-mid 1970s..At one I met Orville Goldner(one of the tech crew on the 1933 classic)and got a signed copy of his book The Making of King Kong..I saw it a whole slew of times on TV during 1976, after they pasted the lost footage back in ,it made the rounds again and again!

Black Jesus (1968) Isn’t What You Think It Is

To view Black Jesus click here. I’d honestly be shocked if more than a handful of people around here have heard of Black Jesus (1968) before today. Barely released in American theaters by one-shot outfit Plaza Pictures and never given a legitimate home video release (ignore the bootleg DVDs), this is a rough, tough and […]

Summer Daze: Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953)

To view Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday click here. The first screen appearance of Jacques Tati’s Hulot character is inside of a car: a clattering, jittering wreck making its way to a seaside hotel in Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953). Tati cuts from the sound of a train horn to the pitter-putter of Hulot’s gasping car engine as it turns the corner […]
