My call for contributions led to a suitably … esoteric response from ace storyboard artist and illustrator Jaeson Finn. He tweeted his top five to me, one at a time. Twitter’s 140-character limit meant that he couldn’t put the titles up as well, meaning that I had to guess which films he was on about.
So, hey, why not, I’m reproducing Jeason’s top five below in the form of a quiz. Answers in the comments, please. Get them all right, and you get a properly certified and not at all cribbed from Marvel X&HTrophy (worth it’s weight in pixels).
Have fun. You get me again next week, and I’m starting off with a look at two films I’ve seen recently with very strong and very unusual female main characters. But for now, live, from the Interwebs, it’s the Quiz Of The Week! Take it away, Jaeson!
5: Just making it onto my list thanks to Tennant. On par with the original, right down to the plot holes, but immensely likable. Weak 3DFX.
4: Ketchum & McKee make a formidable team, wrangling a superb cast to difficult material. Jarring soundtrack.
3: I love anthologies if they’re done well. Nothing wrong with bad taste when it’s delivered with such gusto. Pity Rifkin couldn’t attend.
2: Lacks the depth of it’s Del Toro stablemates but a handsome fairy tale nonetheless. Aims for nostalgic scares rather than disgust.
1: Delivered exactly what I expected, giant monsters documentary style, but remained fresh thanks to wry humour. Troll-lol-lol…
Nice work, that man. For more, check out Jaeson’s Myspace page.
