Q:Still love this blog,ever thought of doing the same for TV (programmes,not sets) ads?
Thanks. I realise have neglected updating this blog! All these movie ads I actually collected over the years.. I wouldnt do TV ads I don’t have a collection to draw from. It would be interesting though.
Moonraker was criticised as being one of the more silly Bond films but I thought it was the best Bond ever. It was a little bit racy (hey I was fourteen), it had lots of spaceships and explosions and it had Roger Moore. Yes, Roger Moore.
After the success of the movie version of Battlestar Galactica the producers promptly shoved a few more TV episodes together and released them theatrically as Mission Galactica: The Cylon Attack. I loved it. It was far better than many of the b-grade Star Wars rip-offs around at the time.
Being only ten at the time I obviously wasn’t allowed to see Jaws, but that didn’t stop me from cutting the movie ad of the newspaper. In my opinion it is one of the most effective movie posters of all time.
Superman II was a great sequel despite the much publicised behind the scenes problems. As far as I’m concerned the Superman films stopped here - Superman three and four have been erased from my memory banks.
A z-grade Australian film featuring John Michael-Howson (aka ‘Clown’ in Adventure Island) which I never saw at the time but I thought the poster was so trashy I had to add it to my collection.
I’d read a lot about this movie in Starlog and Starburst magazines and I really wanted to see it. Alas I was five years away from being of legal age and had to wait until it arrived on VHS tape.
