the finest sign in all the land…
an irrepressible urge to now see this due to the tagline
Recently realised that the following people and their companies are responsible for pretty much every genius or memorable title sequence from film and television of the past 15 years or so: Se7en, True Blood, Six Feet Under, Spiderman, Iron Man and Mad Men are some of my favourites, but the list is 100’s long and my head will hurt if I think of the brilliance any longer.
The Valley of the Gwangi (1969)
basically some cowboys try to kidnap a dinosaur to put into their circus/rodeo show.the SILLY cowboys do not heed the warning of the gypsy and her dwarf, a warning that tells of evil and curses Gwangi (the dinosaur) will put on them.cue fire and lassos from the despicable cowboys,and lots of elegant snarling and snapping from Gwangi.
Gwangi,a true icon of the anti-hero in cinema,wants to be left in peace,not dominated by man.fair play i say…then he just goes radge and bites some other dinosaurs in the valley to death,eats some people,and has a fight with an elephant,before chasing everyone to the church.i’ll get too sad if i think about what happens next.
seriously,look out for it on film4
