I should warn you, the photos accompanying the posts may not match up. The Tzar of Ivanlandia needs not explain himself to you! Right now, that’s what’s happening!
I also want to try and post at least once a day, even if I just throw up (heh-heh) a random photo or quote.
Speaking of quotes: “No movie worth hating or loving has a comfort level,” —Steve Erickson, from his very-recommended Zeroville. If you love movies, this novel is a must-read. It also has one of my favorite directors (John Milius) as a character.
And often I intend to post reviews. Mainly reviews. Sometimes there won’t be anything but reviews.
Links and lists of my friends and faves is forthcoming.
Oh, and when the images I post have been swiped from someone, I'll try and be honest and credit that person--unless there's an obvious watermark, or obvious source.
That was my original idea for the title of this blog, a sort of summation of nearly everything I'd ever wanted cinematically: regularly playing on the ABC Channel 7 4:30 movie--or on WOR-TV Channel 9's 4 O'Clock Movie--the greatest monster movie in the universe, and incredible combo of miniatures, men in suits and stop motion, with entire continents destroyed!
But then there was a coup d'etat, and Tzar Ivan I of Ivanlandia took charge.
