On the subject of Richard Donner

We just published a new article at Commentarium. It’s about Richard Donner, director of iconic movies such as The Omen, Lethal Weapon, The Goonies, Ladyhawke and Superman. His is really a case of the work overshadowing the man; he gets very, very little critical appreciation, even though his movies have shaped entire generations. (They also happen to be very good.)

I’d really appreciate it if people who enjoyed the article helped push it a little. Not just because I want Commentarium to get more hits (we don’t have any advertising anyway, though donations would be nice) or exposure, but because I really want more people to understand and appreciate the amazing work this man has done. So many good movies, made with so much talent and vision, should not go ignored. So let’s try to change that, if only a little.

If you want to help, you could share the article with friends, retweet it, post it on Facebook, or promote it with Digg or similar sites. The button at the end of the post (on Commentarium) can help you do some of that automatically.

Thanks.

  1. You bastard! You promised us an Avatar article, not a damned Richard Donner article!
    *throws jellyfish*
    Take that, you sexy, socialistic, secular senator!

  2. Senator? Now that *is* offensive!

    The Avatar article is still being written. It’s already several pages long.

    Is Phenomenon 32 still coming? Are the technical, flat-related problems still ongoing?
