Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

Playing "follow the link" I just came "this close" (imagine me nearly pressing my thumb and index figure to gether) to those images on this page...

http://frankensteinia.blogspot.com/2...ck-pierce.html

...but the link was broken. The various comments suggest the images I remember were not actually drawn by Pierce's hand, but were presented by other parties to hopefully inspire or guide the eventual design.

Sincerely,

Bill

TCM had Camelot! on last night. Must have been 25 years since I last saw it. It was much slower moving than I remember.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

They must be doing an sf night in their books-to-film theme for the month...

I've only ever seen a few bits of Solaris, it's very deliberately paced... Andromeda Strain remains one of the most accurate translations of a novel to screen I've ever seen, and 2010 is a lot of fun. I saw a bit of Earth to the Moon when they showed it last month, it looked cool.

And as much as I love Arthurian legend, Camelot is pretty snoozy.

Oh, yeah, I hadn't noticed -- those are all films based on SF novels. And I've read all five novels, but I've only seen four of the films. I should check out Solaris.

Solaris is an interesting film, although the pacing might get on some people's nerves. The 2002 remake isn't too shabby, either.

I'm waiting for the Blu-Ray release. (The Criterion version of the original, on Blu-Ray and DVD, is superb).

I'm patient enough to wait. Although it was a financial failure at the box office, the names of George Clooney, Steven Soderbergh, and James Cameron are enough to guarantee that it will be released in high definition...eventually.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger is on right now... it does have Ray Harryhausen fx and a young Jane Seymour.

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad was on, too. That one had Caroline Munroe. Both of those are really good.

Harryhausen/Schneer should have followed Golden Voyage almost immediately, before Harryhausen's skills/time began to suffer as seen in Eye of the Tiger. Imagine if EOTT had GV's level of refined efx. That would have been an off-the-charts experience.

True. Eye Of The Tiger didn't quite have the magic, unfortunately. I barely remember it.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

I wasn't overly impressed with the parts I saw, though I didn't realize 'til the credits rolled that Patrick Troughton played Melanthius... The guy playing Sinbad didn't really leave an impression and it was odd seeing him in an arctic setting.
