Help influence Episode 35!

Recommended Posts

Yes, you can help influence not only the film Pandy & I use as the joint review, but the homework we assign each other to plot the range of their career. As announced in Episode 33, our subject will be Sir Christopher Lee.

Pandy & I will take an executive decision on what makes the joint review on Sunday 16th October,  so get your ideas in before then!

 

NB) Things we won't cover include: his turns in Star Wars prequels/Lord of the Rings, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and most all of his Tim Burton collaborations, The Man with the Golden Gun and Captain America II: Death Too Soon. Don't worry, there's still plenty to choose from...

Wicker Man

Dracula (1958)

Jinnah (which he considered his favorite role and which would be an interesting contrast to Gandhi, even if you don't cover that in a Ben Kingsley month)

Man, he had a minor role in Battle of the River Plate as the bar owner. Gotta rewatch that.

YNHs list seems good. Couldn't see anything definitive in there that outstretched those. Wicker Man for a high profile classic, Dracula for one of his definitive monster roles and Jinnah if he had a personal connection to it.

I wanted to suggest one of his collabs with Tim Burton but I couldn't find any all that major. YKW had a pretty good list. House of Long Shadows might be a cool addition but that's more Vincent Price's film

Thanks guys! :)

Just to qualify my suggestions -- I've never actually seen those three films. From what I gather, though, the first two cemented him as a horror icon and the latter sounds quite interesting. The only film I think I've seen with him getting a high billing is The Man With the Golden Gun, while in all the others (Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Burton films, Hugo etc), he's lucky if he has more than five minutes on screen.

Rasputin The Mad Monk because it's possibly the maddest looking part Lee ever played. 

Dracula, because why the fuck wouldn't you. 

Gremlins 2:The New Batch because sadly I  suspect Zach Galligan month will never be a thing
