At long last, here it is! The debut of the movie poster I did for the long-awaited bigfoot horror comedy Love in the time of Monsters , It’s getting its world premiere at San Jose, CA’s Cinequest Film Festival on March 8th. Check out the write up and the exclusive music video from Thunderkikk on Bloody Disgusting.com
Don’t get me wrong this movie IS really cool. Dinosaurs are and always will be awesome, but the big problem I have with this movie are the fucking Velociraptors. Are you fucking kidding me? Sure, the name Velociraptor itself just threatens death, injury and it sounds like something that would rip your face right off, but in actuality the Velociraptor was only about a foot and a half tall and covered in feathers. (No it could not fly, but that would be kick ass if it could.) It was more like a turkey on steroids.
The dinosaur depicted in Jurassic Park more closely resembles a Deinonychus— its name derived from the Greek word meaning “terrible claw” due to the unusually large, sickle-shaped talon on the second toe of each hind foot. Even though the Deinonychus is 10 times more badass than the actual Velociraptor the name just doesn’t sound that ominous.
Look at it this way, it would be like making a movie about peanuts and casting Tom fucking Hanks to play the part of George Washington Carver just because George Washington Carver sounds like a white dude name. I say fuck that! Steven Spielberg and Michael Crichton have invented some whole new type of racism and it’s a type of racism I for one can’t get behind.
