The Wolfman

I recently got the time to see the film that was "going to bring the classic monsters back to the big screen", the new version the the Wolfman. As is evident by now, the revival never happened and this movie could easily be the reason. 

The good:
The retro Universal studios logo
The sets and locations
The cinematography 
The werewolf makeup

So far it looks like like a classic reborn, the look feel and colour palette are great and the werewolf makeup which the film should live or die by is a great updating of the Lon Chaney jr version. 

The bad:
The acting - totally phoned in by everyone
The violence is over the top and unnecessary
The cgi isn't terrible but it's obvious 
The story

With so much going right the stuff that went wrong is more a shame. The story is basically the same as the failed first Incredible Hulk movie (seriously) and wasted the chance for us to be watching and Creature from the Black Lagoon etc by now and it can't be stated enough how violently repulsive the gore is in this flick. No chance to show dismemberment and intestines on the ground is wasted. This is not classic horror, but it is horrible.

I've been watching the films of the trio of Fiona Gordon, Dominique Abel, and Bruno Romy. Trippy, Funny. Cartoonish. Kind-Hearted. and Goofy. I wish I knew more about them - they seem to come from dance.

June Wilkinson Comic Book Ad

...strange that My Little Margie Comics would be featuring an ad with a a star (June Wilkinson)who, at this point, would be famous for being professionally naked. She mentions being in the Continental Twist with Louis Prima, and in the clip below one can see that the Wate-on that kept her going seems to have worked. Then again it was Charlton comics who were the cheapo brand.

The film "Koch" has been released.. Coincidentally on the day he died. I worked on the restoration and retouching of photos throughout the film. It's been a tough couple years, I only hope I get more good work like this soon!
