Tom, the U.K. based Van Damme fan and I have traded movie ideas with for years, always joking that one day we'd meet up in Bulgaria to make a low budget action movie starring Michael Biehn or Rutger Hauer for Nu Image. Now, Super Tom is one step closer as he's just wrote and produced a short film called Out. The trailer just hit this past weekend, it looks great and I know he's got much more in the pipeline. Watching the handsomely shot and edited trailer concerning a newly released convict helping his adopted brother get out of the world of crime has inspired me to keep moving towards Bulgaria, in a sense. Running the blog, traveling to conventions and planning events has been fun and rewarding but it's good to keep pushing towards something bigger.
it's a real book. The tome consists of bite size movie reviews for over 800 titles in the End of the World genre featuring dozens upon dozens of interviews with cast and crew. After reading his review and interview with director Roger Christian, I actually want to see Battlefield Earth! There's plenty of titles I'd never heard of but now want to check out. Like me, David is celebrating these films and showing the filmmakers that someone out there enjoyed their work, no matter how obscure or how limited the release. Sit downs with the likes of Albert Pyun, Michael Pare, Martin Campbell, Russell Mulcahy and Paul W.S. Anderson are highlights. Mr. Moore's next book is The Good, The Tough and the Deadly: Action Stars and their Movies which pays homage to you guessed it, my favorite genre, the action movie! David has lined up another winner with something like 60+ interviews with actors, martial artists, writers, directors, etc. Yours truly contributed to one of them and has a couple reviews included.
