Slightly Off Topic...

Yes, this deviates a bit off the track, but Kurt Russell is a valuable member of the practical effects film canon. He has starred in some of the best non CGI special effects films out there. That is why this post feels justified for this blog.

We can all agree that Hollywood is on a remake rampage. One thing that sticks out for me though is the insane amount of remakes of Kurt Russell films. The Thing, Escape From New York, Overboard. Yeah, so far that's only 3, but who's to say that Big Trouble In Little China, Used Cars and Breakdown aren't on the horizon? We Russell fans need to make our voices heard. We need to let Hollywood know that Kurt Russell is better than them!

I have designed this logo in the hope that the word can be spread. Shirts, stickers, posters, whatever! copyright withstanding of course.

We stand with you Kurt. Hollywood will not erase your films from us with their re-imagined garbage.

Thank You.

Now back to your regular scheduled air bladders.

The trolls in "Troll 2" looked more convincing

Why, oh why would you make a film in “Blair Witch” documentary style, and make the monsters absolutely craptastically CGI? I’m talking about SyFy quality. It’s really appalling and insulting to look at. We’re supposed to get into a “documentary” film about trolls when the trolls they show are 2D cartoons?

New “Death To CGI” rule: If you are making a shaky cam documentary and need to have obscured humanoid shapes appear from time to time, spend time to MAKE THE FLIPPIN’ COSTUMES! I guarantee the audience will laugh less.

Dammit Norway! What the hell?
