Gerry Anderson, king of Supermarionation: 1929-2012

26 December 2012 1:28 PM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

Gerry Anderson, creator of Thunderbirds, Space: 1999, Supercar, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Joe 90, UFO, Fireball XL5, Stingray, and many other science fiction and fantasy shows, has died at the age of 83.

Gerry was best know for his “Supermarionation” series, featuring detailed marionettes and a science-fiction based storyline.  His ex-wife Sylvia collaborated frequently with him, most famously voicing Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward in Thunderbirds.  The shows were a first step for many well-known actors and creators, including Lois Maxwell (Moneypenny in the early James Bond films), character actors Shane Rimmer and Jaremy Wilkin (Blake’s 7) and special effects master Derek Meddings (Star Wars and the James Bond franchise).  He made successful forays into live action as well, with the series Space: 1999 and UFO, and the feature film Journey to the Far Side of the Sun.

Gerry suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease for several years, and spent much of his »

2 October 2012 8:38 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

(L to R): Cinema Retro's Ajay Chowdhury, Matthew Field, Dave Worrall and Mark Mawston.

By Matthew Field

Last night Cinema Retro attended the world premiere of Everything Or Nothing: The Untold Story of OO7 in London. Bond alumni were out in force as many faces from in front and behind the camera attended the Leicester Square screening. The film was followed by a fascinating Q&A with Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli, Steven Saltzman and Hilary Saltzman. They spoke affectionately about growing up together on the set of the early Bond movies, as well as the challenges faced by their fathers Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman in bringing and keeping James Bond on the screen. They were joined by director Stevan Riley who discussed the daunting task of navigating a story through 60 years of Bond heritage.

Guests included Charles Dance, Maryam d’Abo, former Eon publicist Jerry Juroe, »

DVD Review: Warlords of Atlantis

29 July 2012 2:49 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Warlords Of Atlantis

Stars: Doug McClure, Peter Gilmore, Shane Rimmer, Lea Brodie, Michael Gothard, John Ratzenberger | Written by Brian Hayles | Directed by Kevin Connor

Having gone through most of the recent Amicus releases I was quite surprised with Warlords of Atlantis and the fact that it’s quite the standout film of the Doug McClure selection, then of course realised it’s not an Amicus film at all as they no longer existed when this was made; this was a continuation of the films outside of that company and was directed by Kevin Conner who directed most of Amicus’ fantasy films.  Taking the mythological city of Atlantis as the base of the story and adding a stronger subplot to it, it stands out as a strong film than some of the more well-known titles.

Doug McClure this time plays Greg Collinson the inventor of a diving bell that he and »

Warlords Of Atlantis DVD Review

25 July 2012 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Kevin Connor

Starring: Doug McClure, Peter Gilmore, Shane Rimmer, Lea Brodie, John Ratzenberger

Running time: 96 minutes

Certificate: PG

Extras: None

Synopsis: A group of explorers and sailors discover a gold statue, but little do they know it belongs to the lost city of Atlantis and a huge octopus is coming to take it back. A number of the crew soon find themselves in the lost city and must fight to return home…

This third release from StudioCanal may not be produced by Amicus Productions, but it is still directed by Kevin Connor and stars Doug McClure. If it ain’t broke then don’t fix it. Only problem is, this is all getting rather repetitive. Doug McClure plays the exact same character he portrayed in both The Land That Time Forgot and At The Earth’S Core. Only this time he doesn’t have an interesting sidekick such as »
