  • Island of Lost Souls 1932

    Watched 18 Oct, 2014 2

    There are a few shots of Charles Laughton in this that are simply amazing.

    It would've been interesting to have seen some more creatures that were closer to the animal side than the human side, but I suppose that would've been much more difficult to depict at the time. You could do it now, but then you wouldn't have Charles Laughton, so....

Also, it was surprisingly well-paced for basically being a long fight scene, with some breather sections in there at just the right times. Definitely had fun with this.
