Willow Looks Great, And Your Movie Doesn’t 13 Dec, 2018 / 6 comments

In honor of Willow’s 30th anniversary, I sportingly elected to use it as a cudgel to beat on other movies with. Check out my new rant that decries the way movies look nowadays, using Willow as a tortuously coerced polestar in a desperate attempt to be able to market the piece as Mojo-relevant.

Thanks to Remi for the header

    Speaking of Lucasfilm Bluray re-releases, I really don't like the colour pallete used in the Raiders Bluray compared to VHS and DVD - looks like Crystal Skull now.

    Loved this article. Also, good(???) news:

    I admit I can’t help but wonder why Lucasfilm/Disney cannot manage to squirt out a new Willow installment once every thirty years.



    Well....

    A few weeks ago, Ron Howard revealed that he and Lucasfilm had quietly been talking about the possibility Willow 2 and now, the director has announced that the talks have become serious.

    Brilliant, and I'm even featured in a screenshot.
    All thanks to Larry.

    smaller and non-Hollywood movies never seemed to succumb to that trend



    Oh, I think art house films are plenty guilty of waxing on their own signature, importable styles. My personal favorite is the quasi-faded, imitation 70s grade that is so ubiquitous that it might as well be called Indie Movie: The Look. Few eventualities are more damning than getting co-opted by mawkish Coke commercials.

    That was a surprisingly enjoyable read. I think movies have moved away from that post-processing, or so it seems from the handful of blockbusters I watch (smaller and non-Hollywood movies never seemed to succumb to that trend, the odd Bollywood movie aside).
