THE CROW 25TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING
As if getting to see The Crow on a big screen again wasn't enough, I won this Super 7 Eric Daven figure in the raffle.
Most know I'm a big movie geek, many don't know that I went to NYU wanting to make martial arts films.
Though I obviously have a ton of respect for Bruce Lee, I was a Brandon Lee fan. I remember seeing Showdown in Little Tokyo and getting caught by how Brandon stood out.
Rapid Fire is a great film in terms of Brandon's performance and the Jackie Chan inspired fight choreography. Plus, Red Dawn made me a Powers Boothe fan for life.
Next up was The Crow.
As a comic book geek and martial arts fanboy, I couldn't believe this film was being made at all.
And then the news hit that Brandon was accidentally killed with a prop gun. My nerd heart was pretty crushed.
My friends and I got to opening night super early so we could get the perfect seats. (No reserved seats back then).
Damn. This film was/is magic.
Brandon is amazing.
Best of all, 25 years later, it still holds up.
Huge thanks to Nitehawk Cinema - Prospect Park and Culture Canon Presents for hosting the screening.
I had a great time hanging out with Nick, Sandy and my wife Kim.
