To Live and Die in L.A. (1985)
A true classic!
I like the others that have posted love this movie and can not understand why it didn't (money-wise) do better at the box-office. Back in the 1980's I read a lot of crime novels and To Live And Die In L.A. captures the flavor of a great crime thriller. Bad good-guys and even badder bad-guys this movie keeps you wondering how it's going to end. William Peterson and Willem Dafoe give great performances. My only complaint? Why is this movie not on Dvd yet?!!! I hope the studio hasn't forgot about this film, truly it is a crime film classic. I have the Wang Chung soundtrack and it still rocks. Ahhh...the 80's.
A true classic.
M. Night Shyamalan has got to be the Rod Serling of the 21st century. Being a long time reader and collector of comicbooks this movie really hit home for me. The pace of the movie is slow but intentional and draws you into it's web like a master Supervillain. I sat through the whole movie trying to figure out the twist ending and I was really blown away by it. Every one praises The Matrix for being the best Comicbook movie not based on a comic, well Unbreakable has it beat by light years!
A great start.
I had my doubts about this movie being any good but Bryan Singer has pulled off a winner of a movie. The makers of Batman should take notes. This movie is funny in all the right places and the action is handled in a serious way. Hugh Jackman shines as Wolverine and the chemistry between he and Rogue gives the movie heart. Maybe with a bigger budget for the sequel(no doubt about it)the next movie can really cut loose with truly comicbook action. Can't wait for the DVD to see the stuff they had to cut out. Bravo to director Bryan Singer, Bravo.
Big Trouble in Little China (1986)
My favorite Comicbook.
I never fail to watch this movie any-time it's on cable, it's like reading your favorite Comicbook over and over and you still find something new every-time. I could never understand why this movie was not a box-office winner,it's got everything that an action movie requires. John Carpenter proves once again that he is a director ahead of his time, who knew that the guy who did halloween had a flair for a Superhero movie? Fans of the Matrix (myself included) have been calling The Matrix the best Comicbook movie not based on a Comicbook, well Big Trouble is the king of the Comicbook movies. Hey, maybe they should get John to do the next Batman movie. Just a thought.
