Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

I think the only movie I am looking forward to seeing this year is Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. Unfortunately that movie doesn't come out till the end of the year, and I have been purposely not trying to follow to closely the plot details or character descriptions because I really want to be surprised as to what JJ Abrams delivered on screen. I already have low expectations because the self hype I felt when the Prequels came out was diminished greatly by the final production. Still this new film has sparked the creative fire for my favorite Star Wars film: The Empire Strikes Back.

Unbreakable the movie

I haven't posted in a while....

Here's an alternative movie poster for M. Night Shyamalan's masterpiece "Unbreakable". I created to get the creative juices flowing again.

To me this movie is an underrated classic. It elevated the Superhero movie genre and was a direct reason for the development of the TV series "Heroes" (IMHO). Sam. L Jackson had some of the best lines and acting in this movie. His character summed up my feeling about the importance of Comic Book drawings: "This is a piece of art!". M. Night was still on his game with pacing, cinematography, dialogue, and plot.
