I know it's probably a bit early in the morning for this, but I'm an early riser!

There's a program/film on BBC2 at 7.30am about the great man. Apparently it has contributions from Peter Jackson and Guillermo Del Toro. Sounds interesting....



Looks like it'll be in iPlayer after....

Hi,
Thank you for the heads up. I'll catch it on the Iplayer later today.

Now they've knocked me down and taken it, that still hot and smoking gun.

Just watched it.  Spent some time in a nostalgia trip in another time and place.  

Excellent tribute to a man who shaped the whole art form and had an effect on movies, our imaginations and our games.

I don't think I realised HOW MUCH of an influence he was on modern cinema. All the new films they showed clips of and related them back to old clips. Terminator, Avatar, etc....

Yes I saw this last time it was on. Excellent documentary and well worth watching.


That's the trouble with heroics. They seldom run to schedule...

Thanks for the alert, Andym.

You know, I don't think that there's a single one of those films that I wouldn't be happy to watch again right now.
