So sorry, Black Phillip :/
Oh, subversive just means contrary to the “norm”. There aren’t too many films (set for a mainstream audience anyway) that looks like this, and Harmony’s films tend to be very much in line with The Beach Bum. That’s all I meant by it.
Am I right? He’s a voice that I’m glad is being sought out. I hope even more creatives get a similar platform in the future.
Hi, John. Thank you very much for your criticisms. I’m totally okay with that. In response to Die Hard 2 and 3’s RT ratings, I agree that a 54 (barely rotten on the tomato meter) can be considered a somewhat poor response, however, a 68 is fairly fresh. I didn’t say that those films were highly praised just that they…
Please keep in mind that stories go through an editing process, and I’m sure there is a reason why that detail was omitted. On a happy note, yes this really rad film was released in 1989 and if it is screening near you, I hope you can check it out or see it when it is released on Blu-ray or DVD.
I think I found elements of the film to be bizarre for a few reasons but mostly because I am not used to seeing a little kid in constant mortal danger. It was in no way a dealbreaker. It just took some adjusting. It is screening in a few places. I can’t wait to see it again.
Thank you for sharing your experience. So sorry that this happened to you. I imagine if the walls of houses from any era could talk they would have some very interesting things to say.
That is interesting how they changed the home’s appearance for the BBC production. That style really did permeate throughout pop culture. I like a good bit of Agatha Christie’s work, so I hope I can watch it somehow. I’m happy you enjoyed the program.
That does sound like a really cool way to spend Halloween! I can imagine that if there are too many Victorian homes in a row together it dulls some of the uniqueness to the experience, but it seems like that didn’t keep you from having a good time which is very awesome!
