Beyond Fanboy Road

With all of the current on-line fanboy mania concerning the recently released MAD MAX(4):FURY ROAD that is running wild on-line(if any of the haters think that this is really bad,wait until the new STAR WARS sequel gets released in December),if anyone is looking for my review of the film,here is the link to it…

Otherwise,that just basically covers it for George Miller’s fourth film with his post apocalyptic hero(with a fifth film now in the planning stages),for there’s something else that I want to quickly talk about that made me glad that I avoided to this year’s Las Vegas Wizard World convention,since the recent Wizard World Philly convention gave Lin Shaye an award as the Godmother Of Horror(?!?!?!  :O :O ),with all of the mindless fanboys(and fangirls) loudly cheering.  Just because the wife of  New Line Cinema company boss Robert Shaye appears in a few horror films doesn’t make her the queen of horror,ala Debbie Rochon(with Fangoria magazine pulling that similar tactic a few years ago),since Lin lacks the style and elegance that made the likes of Barbara Steele and Ingrid Pitt the top women in that very genre cinema,for any fanboy(and fangirl) that fully disagrees with me on that statement fully needs to get their heads examined. Otherwise,I will just say that I rightfully nominate Caroline Munro as the One and Only True And Real Godmother Of Horror.

On a sad note: a few months after the closing of Los Angeles’ beloved Hollywood Book And Poster store,its owner Eric Caidin passed away a few days ago from a heart attack(while watching a noir thriller at one of his film festivals). I wasn’t a friend of Caidin,but I did highly respect him for all of the good that he did for the genre community,both celebrity-wise and fanbase-wise,for many years since 1977,and it’s sad to see that he never got to see his plans of re-locating his famous store to Burbank(the home of the Monsterpalooza conventions) come to full fledged life. He’ll be sadly missed by many.

The New POLTERGEIST Remake/Reboot Is Coming Out This Friday: We’ll See If It’s Any Good(Since Sam Raimi Is Producing It[And It Looks Like It’ll Have A Few Chilling Moments Of Its Own{With The On-Line Poster Art Mainly Centered Around The Creepy Looking Clown Doll}]) Or If It’s Just Another Gratuitous Remake
