In Memoriam: Peter O’Toole (1932–2013)

:*( One of My All-Time Fave Of Faves.
He Will Be Sadly Missed, Fo Sho. 😦

Hard Ticket to Home Video

The world lost an acting icon and legend Saturday when Peter James O’Toole finally succumbed to a long illness at the age of 81. He was 8-time nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor, he sadly never won until the Academy gave him an honorary award in 2003. But who can deny his tremendous acting ability, wit and exuberant personality. He was one of the first great actors I knew growing up watching such un-classics of his like Supergirl, High Spirits and Club Paradise. It wasn’t until I really got into film that I realized how awesome he is in such outstanding movies like Lawrence of Arabia, Becket, The Lion in Winter and My Favorite Year (my personal favorite). Sure, Lawrence of Arabia is 6 hours long but I did actually watch it twice in my life (so far) and I will and can watch it…

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes posters show some damn dirty apes!

Sweeeeet!!!
I’m sooooo ready for the saga to continue!!! 😀

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Old Caesar light

There are only two Planet of the Apes films that I actually like. The 1968 classic, starring Charlton Heston, and Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Wyatt elevated the franchise with Rise, which was essentially an oldschool B-movie with fantastic special effects. It’s pure entertainment, and I can’t wait to see how the story continues. After Wyatt dropped out of the directing gig for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the film picked up quite the surprising choice along the way—Let Me In‘s Matt Reeves. Seeing as how they went with a horror director, I’d expect this sequel to be much darker than its original counterpart.
