When you get to work with one of the GREATS, you kneel!
When @dllewis82 and @emosswilson sent me the treatment for #achristmaswish , there was a magical role that demanded someone with a powerful presence. #PamGrier !!!!
There was no one else in our minds.
To our absolute delight, she said yes and was the first cast member aboard. They say not to meet your heroes, but that’s bullshit. Pam Grier is cooler, more beautiful, and warmer in real life than I could have ever predicted. Thanks to @mattsbelldp for capturing this moment of pure fandom.
Also, shower caps are the only way to keep Louisiana humidity outta curly hair. Ha.

Temp cover for MICK & SARAH AT THE PICTURES. Now Crowdfunding At @unbounders (link in profile). In the autumn of 1970, Mick and Sarah meet at their local cinema, The Rex, and go and see a Hammer horror double bill. They are nineteen and the future seems wide open. But they have no idea what kind of a decade they are about to grow into.
How long can first love continue to burn bright?
Set against the backdrop of the turbulent seventies, moving from one year to the next, Mick and Sarah come of age in a world of Bruce Lee movies, political turmoil, naughty sex comedies, bombings, blackouts, and Bowie. And through it all, there is The Rex, and Mick and Sarah’s loyalty to the old fleapit.
They grow up, experiencing all the joys and agonies life in your twenties can bring, each shaking off adolescence in different ways. Sarah yearns for experience and life beyond their drab world. She also dreams of becoming an author. Mick is a working man; a few pints down the pub, fish & chips in front of the telly, and a film down the piccies at the weekend.
‘Mick & Sarah At The Pictures’ is a love story told in glimpses; it is a journey into the life of two young downtrodden people, whose only outlet and escape from the harsh realities of 1970s Britain is at The Rex on a Friday night.
From glam to prog to punk, from Heath to Thatcher, from ‘On the Buses’ to ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’, this is a bittersweet tale of first love and the movies; a story of two people and the picture house that shaped their lives – a place that was a cornerstone. It is a novel about a Britain that has long gone, a celebration in the miracle of movies, and a study in how we communicate to one another, how we love, and how we stay in love.
"Ghosts of Mars", du John Carpenter furieux, teigneux, fiévreux, metalleux dans la lignée vers l'enfer de "Vampires" et "Los Angeles 2013" avec un casting hétéroclite, des tronches impossibles qu'on n'aimerait pas croiser sur Terre, et une narration originale trépidante digne d'un grand huit !
