    Trailers from Hell

    An episode from one of my favorite animated movies by Ralph Bakshi with trailer commentary for the 1972 film Fritz the Cat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHOQ5wI9jQA

    Here is another insightful commentary by Brian-Trenchard Smith about the film Becket starring Peter O'Toole and Richard Burton. Just listening to his voice and his upper-level vocabulary brings me joy as if one were in a classroom with him as the college professor giving us a lecture about a film that has been relatively obscure but has gained renewed attention. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWUAODG4Bmo

    There is a great batch of trailers commented by trailer editor and filmmaker Brian-Trenchard Smith. Here is an example of his versatile expertise at describing the plot, history, cast and director of the movie Snowpiercer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aK4p4WjqAbA

    Maybe somebody like Jim Jarmusch could be brought on to list his favorite movies as a guest programmer. He makes some great films that rely more on substance in its content than showcasing the spectacle.

    I always wondered if TCM were calling back the same people from the previous years to provide more movies to see on TCM. But I always find it strange to bring John Landis back. Why not bring Joe Dante or Eric Stoltz as a guest programmer? Or maybe Barry Jenkins or the guests featured in the Adventures in Moviemaking from the Criterion Collection?

    A movie that I highly recommend about the making of a movie in a movie is called "American Movie" (1999). A documentary about a young filmmaker making his own independent movie that the main filmmaker had never completed since 1991. The filmmaker is Mark Borchardt who was originally inspired to direct another film for his community in the midwest, but in a sudden turn of events, decides to complete his low-budget horror film "Coven" (2000). But along the way he encounters financial problems, weather issues, and other production issues that start to go haywire. It is a funny film, and an interesting look into independent filmmaking when things don't always go according to plan from the filmmakers vision and mindset.

    One of the films that I was attracted to when I was in film class at Hillsborough Community College was the film "Miami Connection" (1987). It is a genre bending film directed by Y.K. Kim. It combines martial arts and boy band films of the 1980s decade set in the city of Orlando, Florida as well as the city of Miami. It is an unusual film, but it is a lot of fun, if you get a chance to enjoy the corniness of it all. The film was originally not a commercial or critical success in the Orlando area. The film put Y.K. Kim in debt as he struggled to grapple with the film's failure. Overtime the film was shown at underground theaters across the United States and it was in 2012 that Drafthouse Films restored and re-released the film and it gained critical and commercial reception all throughout the country. This film has been shown in dozens of theaters across the country for its newfound audience of corny 1980s action, martial arts, rock music and over-the-top acting that you have to see to believe. This is a film that is a must-see and one that I would highly recommend.

    The other film that I watched several days ago from the library was "The Lady From Shanghai" (1948). This film is pretty interesting in that it is one of the few films that was created by Orson Welles with special thanks to William Castle, that the film became an unusual film when it was first released in 1948. I watched this film with audio commentary by Peter Bogdanovich as he provided anecdotes about how he came across this film, his interview with Orson Welles, the debunking of rumors that surrounded Welles' film when it was first shown in theaters, and the cult status that elevated the movie to become a film classic. It is an unusual film from Orson Welles, with his haunting cinematography, score, acting and sequences that were originally planned when Welles wrote meticulous notes about the specifics of how it should be played out throughout the making of the film.

    I watched the film "I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang" (1932) several days ago. It was a heartfelt and compelling film that I notice is relevant in today's climate regarding social and political injustice in the United States today. The main character played by Paul Muni is a war veteran who came back home from the war and is struggling to look for work all across the United States, but he finds himself in trouble when he is part of a shooting that he is not a part of. It's message of social injustice and unrest is a good reason of why films of that subject matter ring true in today's culture.

    What I have found fascinating about the film Monsieur Verdoux (1947) is that this underrated Charlie Chaplin comedy was meant to move away from the light-hearted comedies Chaplin was known for creating when it comes to writing, acting and directing; as well as producing his own films. This bravura performance that he displays throughout the entire film showcases his willingness of going into dark subject matter while keeping his liberal agenda intact on film. It was Chaplin's biggest flop of the post-war era, but it is an important reminder that even great artists like Chaplin can create artistic films without going against the nth degree of what is distasteful to the audience and what is considered art. It was the film that Bill Cosby introduced in January 2005. But the consequence of this comedian and the film that he selected are not similar to the crime that he was accused of in 2014 by dozens, if not multiple women who threw allegations of sexual criminal activity over the years.

A writer who viewed 1,225 episodes in 45 days, he shares his obsession with Collinsport fans daily. Runners-up: Jonathan Rigby, Gary Rhodes, Tom Weaver, Tim Lucas, Kit Ellinger, **** Coangelo, Frank Dello Stritto, Kim Newman ARTIST OF THE YEAR Mark Maddox The dazzling artwork of Mark Maddox has become as familiar as the logos of our favorite monster magazines. Whether giving a vibrant vibe to Ghidrah or a somber take on Dracula, the Maddox touch is sure and steady. No wonder his work is nominated for several covers each year. Runners-up: Daniel Horne, Chantal Handley, Scott Jackson, Gary Pullin, Frank Dietz, Jason Edmiston, L.J. Dopp, Peter Von Sholly, George Chastain LINDA MILLER AWARD FOR FAN ARTIST OF THE YEAR (In Memory of the late Linda Miller) David G. Hardy The art of David G. Hardy flows naturally, capturing the hearts and torments of our favorite monsters and supporting players. Whether casual sketches or full-throated portraits, Hardy's work is in the grand tradition of classic fantasy, propelled by an exuberance of spirit that keeps his horrors...alive. Runners-up: John Sargent, Malcolm Gittins, Jeff Carlson, Jerrod Brown, Rob Costello. SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARD Sonny Vento of the Haunted Barn Movie Museum Sonny Vento, now 87, appeared very briefly in 1953 as a longshoreman in THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS, just before the Rhedosaur attacks. Vento helped his son, Joey, start the Haunted Barn Movie Museum in New York, which since 1968 has displayed monster props and shown movies to kids young and old. Says Joey: "When we do our Monstrous Movie Memories Show displays, we always do a tribute to dad." We at the Rondos are delighted to honor a Greatest Generation Monster Kid! MONSTER KID OF THE YEAR TIM LANZA A vice president at the Cohen Media Group, Tim was the driving force behind the restoration of James Whale's OLD DARK HOUSE on Blu-Ray. Working his industry contacts for years, he finally got access to a Library of Congress copy for a 4K restoration. Classic horror fans now have the 1932 film as it was meant to have been seen. The Rondos are honored to select Tim Lanza as our Monster Kid of the Year. THE MONSTER KID HALL OF FAME JUNE FORAY June Foray was quite literally the voice of several generations, the voice artist behind Rocky and Bullwinkle, Looney Tunes, Hanna-Barbera, Disney and scores of commercials and films. Passing away last year at the age of 99, her legacy lives on to the delight of our children and grandchildren. CASSANDRA PETERSON Taking the tradition of horror hosts to sexy and hilarious heights, Cassandra Peterson's Elvira character never forgot the dignity of the films she lampooned. For 30 years she's kept forgotten horror franchises alive. One of the genre's true pioneers. GREG NICOTERO In a world of suits and balance sheets, it's rare that someone who gets it takes charge of a horror franchise as important as THE WALKING DEAD. A trailblazing makeup and effects artist, Nicotero's deft directing touch keeps the show at the cutting edge of 21st Century storytelling. His work will be a guide for generations of filmmakers to come. ROBERT TAYLOR In a world of collectors, few can compare with Robert Taylor, whose rooms of show business memorabilia from the early 1900s to the fright films of the 50s is a living museum. With access to Forrest J. Ackerman's writings and Vincent Price artwork, Taylor is a master of ephemera that matters. In addition, his years of serving as Sara Karloff's aide de camp at conventions and elsewhere have kept icons available to fans and researchers. HARUO NAKAJIMA For decades he was the anonymous man in the Godzilla suit, walking silently though miniature cities. It was hot in the suit, he said later, sometimes he was injured. But Haruo Nakajima never faltered as he kept Toho's monster franchise on schedule. Late in life fans learned his names and flocked to him at conventions. When he died at age 88, Nakajima knew that in his own way, he was a star. MIKE HILL Mike Hill's lifelike sculpts of famous monsters can take your breath away. Full-size and detailed down to the tear on a teenage werewolf's pants leg, Hill's work reveals the humanity in even the fiercest of creatures. His work on the merman in THE SHAPE OF WATER shows his Hollywood influence has only just began.
