The Shadow, the Phantom, Scott Pilgrim, Flash Gordon, Dick Tracy....thoughts?
You know, I enjoy a lot of things about The Shadow and The Phantom, own them both on DVD. Not great, but fun. Flash Gordon I ADORE. Absolutely ADORE.
Haven't seen Scott Pilgrim yet.
And Dick Tracy... to be honest, once you take away the Art Direction... well, you don't have a whole lot left really. It's is a way to pass time, I suppose.
I have a soft spot for The Phantom (a good, old-fashioned Saturday matinee adventure) and The Shadow (great music and atmosphere), too, and Flash Gordon is a guilty pleasure whose dialogue is burned into my brain forever. "No, not the boreworms!"
I actually listen to the SHADOW soundtrack constantly when I'm writing. It's one of my top go-to soundtracks when I'm need of musical inspiration.
Saw DICK TRACY years ago, when it first came out, but have never been motivated to watch it again. I've only seen snippets of SCOTT PILGRIM on cable, but it looked cute; I'm going to have to find time to watch it from beginning to end sometime.
