A Number of Leagues Under the Sea

Here it is, the grand finale of my "Round the World in 80 (But Actually Just 3) Posters!" In retrospect I probably should have made one for Around the World in 80 days, but these'll do for now. I probably will revisit it at some point and complete the set. In the mean time, enjoy the leagues!

NAM: Something A Little Different

Something different for NAM this week, a bit of behind the scenes for you. The original concept version (I actually have an even simpler version, but I can't be bothered to dig THAT far into the archives) in the bottom left, the version that I originally sold for a while in the top left, and the most up to date version at the right.

Welcome to Prime Time!

The series continues! Freddy slashes his way into the set of spray paint style horror movie icons. Who's next? Who's left alive? Or dead, depending on how you look at it. Either way, give him a high five.

Bark At the Moon

Second in the series of 6 (or 8 depending on how you classify the Universal Monsters, or, like, twenty depending on if there is one mummy or two, and if the assorted Brides Of... count). Working backwards, inadvertently. First was Gill Man, now Wolf Man. What will be next? Maybe Invisible? Who knows! Stay tuned to find out!

Welcome To the Jungle

Predator 2 gets a lot of flack for not being as good as the first one (which is to say, when people actually remember it exists) but you know what? It's still a badass action flick. And it's from 1990. You know what that means? It's a badass 90s action flicks. Even better. Sure, it doesn't hold up as well as the first. But it still oozes a grittiness that is practically a defining feature of 90s action cinema.

Also, Bill Paxton gets his skull ripped out and Gary Busey gets blown up.

It's a Jungle Out There

The best Vietnam war movie ever made not featuring the Vietnam war, while also featuring camouflaged alien murder-beasts. Fun fact: Jean-Claude Van Damme originally played the Predator.

Also fitting given that today is Boxing Day, and the stores will be only slightly less nightmarish than being hunted by the Predator.

NAM: Into the Storm

Only the foolish or the brave would set foot upon wooden plank and set forth against the driving wind and rain. Would dare to challenge the endlessly black majesty of the depths of a sea that draws them nearer to the end with each churning white wave. Seeking the guiding light of the house upon the rocks, to steer them safely from being dashed upon the ocean's razor sharp teeth. But when the light dims, and the shadows envelope them all, there is no hope. There is only the bellowing roar of the waves. The boundless shriek of the wind. The drumming of the rain. The chorus guiding them to their dark demise. The seas are stormy tonight.
