Do you think God lives in Heaven because He, too, lives in fear of what He's created here on Earth?


Has anyone gotten their start at asylum or is that where you wash up after loving up

I believe in a universe that doesn't care, and people that do.




The weird thing about Roger Corman is that everyone who tried to follow in his footsteps just wasn't able to make trash nearly as entertaining or professional looking as his. The guy was a special talent in the world of no to low budget.

But his biggest talent was knowing where to spend his money. The Asylum probably spends more on its burnt-out meme celebrity cameos than it does on any other aspect of the production, and that's one of the reasons their movies are poo poo.

EVERY FAIRY TALE NEEDS ITS HERO.



I'd spend 90% of the budget shooting an incredible trailer, then 10% on the rest of the production. Fool 'em as much as you can, since it's not like anyone walks away from those movies satisfied anyway.

Corman came from an engineering background, and it shows. Dude knew how to optimize production, exactly how to stretch those dollars as far as they could without letting it show. As cheap as they looked, they were actually cheaper still. Dude understood that passionate newbies in the industry hungry to make their mark and actually invested in making movies are willing to work for peanuts.

He also has one of the best eyes for talent in the industry. The man's movies look great because he was willing to take chances on people he liked and knew enough to let them run with it. I wonder just how many Oscars there are between the actors and directors he's mentored.

Roger Corman is arguably the most influential and important person in the history of American cinema

He could be, that seems pretty cheap to do.

The question is simply did he pilot any of the monsters in Attack of the Crab Monsters. If yes, he is a kaiju.
