Trailers from Hell: John Badham about the orwellian Truths in Blue Thunder

 Youtube Direktthunder

John Badham, Regisseur von unter anderem Wargames und Short Circuit, kommentiert auf einer meiner Lieblingsfilmwebsites, John Landis' Trailers from Hell, seinen Film „Blue Thunder“ („Das fliegende Auge“) und redet über die von ihnen damals ausgedachten Überwachungstechnologien und wie die heute bei weitem übertroffen werden. (Und in der neuesten, grade online gegangenen Folge redet er über Russ Meyers „Mudhoney“.)

Trailers from Hell haben grade übrigens auch eine Kickstarter-Kampagne am Start:

Warning! Joe Dante’s Trailers From Hell is not recommended for the faint of heart or for those suffering from nervous dispositions. Unless you have a licensed nurse in attendance or a trusted psychiatrist on call, we suggest you approach this mindbending experience at your own risk. And please don’t make us say ‘we told you so’.

The premiere online showcase for trailers from classic era films, Trailers From Hell is a compulsively watchable experience, hugely entertaining for the casual film fan and total nirvana for the movie-mad film-geek.

Drawn from a wide spectrum of movie genres, each trailer is analyzed and illuminated by over 40 "Grindhouse Gurus", veteran film professionals all, including directors, writers, producers and other top-flight Hollywood craftsmen, each united by their love of film.

Launched in May of 2007 with only word-of-mouth publicity, Trailers From Hell has since become the weekly ‘must-see’ stop for film lovers around the globe, presenting a different movie trailer each Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
