If a fan film like Rafael Segnini's can produce results like this, why hasn't someone turned Shogun Warriors into a film franchise yet?
The short is a fan-film for the 1985-1986 Japanese tokusatsu series Space Wolf Juspion. The title of the video in English, “Juspion 3D: Transformation of Daileon/Mad Gallant – Definitive Preview,” also refers to Daileon, the massive ship that turns into a robot, and Mad Gallant, the evil metal man whom Juspion fights later in the short.
And if it seems like Juspion’s look is familiar to you, it’s because it’s part of Toei’s larger series Metal Heroes, some of which Saban adapted into VR Troopers and Big Bad Beetleborgs. He even uses the Daileon song, as sung by Akira Kushida.
Will probably take a few years for everyone to forget the Pacific Rim movies anyway! 😁
On This Day In 1999: I saw 'Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace'
AKA 'Star Wars: Episode I - The Slow and Carefree Decline of the Movie Franchise'.
I’m a fan of early Hollywood-era comedians and comedy teams so I couldn’t wait to see the new bio pic, “Stan and Ollie”.
Written by Jeff Pope, directed by Jon S. Baird, and stars Steve Coogan (Stan Laurel) and John C. Reilly (Oliver Hardy) who took such care in their roles that you forget you’re not watching the actual duo. It's a really charming movie about friendship with plenty of nods to their career including a not so subtle one to “The Music Box.” It has an outstanding cast overall but I can't say enough about the two leads... they went way deeper than imitating the head scratch and tie twirl... will probably be my favorite movie of 2019.
Remind me to tell you the story of when I joined the short lived Sons of the Desert Nashville chapter in the late 90's and why I stopped going...
