Drawing Smiley Faces on Terrifying Things To Make Them Happy 24 février 2014
Par Sam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
So what about the second installment? Still pretty much one of the most awesome art related books out there. Still full of awesome artwork from Scott C. Still full of classic moments in film history. Really, the only reason I docked it a star this time around was that there just seemed to be a lot more obscure films in this one than the other. I’ve seen a few other reviews that have said the same so I don’t feel too bad for my apparent lack of knowledge of the classic origins for these pieces.

That said, there are still plenty of super recognizable moments.

The book starts out with an introduction much like before except this time it’s from Edgar Wright who – much like Neil Patrick Harris before him – is a huge fan of Scott C. Next to this introduction is one of the best drawings in the book which shows the characters in Hot Fuzz facing off. Then we hear from Scott himself once again in a rather disjointed message where ultimately the best part is his drawing smiley faces on terrifying things like a bloody knife to make them happy.

Great Showdowns: The Return starts off strong with the Karate Kid on the title page and moves into several other great ones. I think my favorite is probably the full two-page Sandlot drawing but there are tons of other great ones. Some other great ones are: Office Space, Home Alone, West Side Story, District 9, Spaceballs, Hocus Pocus, A Muppet Christmas Carol, Galaxy Quest, and Spirited Away. There’s also a great Ferris Bueller one with Cameron and the painting smiling back.

One of the most spectacular slices of movie-based pop-culture you're ever likely to find... 18 novembre 2013
Par Danny Ratcliff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Words cannot describe the genius of Scott C...not even the words of film-making legend Edgar Wright (Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End, Spaced) in his forward to the book. This man's talent for condensing characters and inanimate objects from some of the best loved (and sometimes lesser known) films in cinema history is unparalleled. With what seems like effortless panache, he is able to pinpoint what we love about these characters and their struggles with their onscreen "foes" - each piece surprising, charming, and funny, but above all, uniquely Scott Campbell.

I can't imagine a better introduction to some of the lesser known films that Scott depicts, and for this price this book is an absolute steal. Scott is one of my favorite artists - I have his books and art in my office and have yet to find someone who once they've opened the book, don't pore over each and every page. A great conversation piece and an easy way to ensure that anyone who sees that you own it knows you are, completely and incontrovertibly, "rad".

Anyone with the least interest in film will enjoy this book. Simply put, I cannot recommend it higher.

THese are great. I use it as a gauge to see if somebody is a true movie/comic junkie or if they are just a nerd culture poseur. If you don't "get at least 80% of this book you are a poseur. Love it.
Great artist! 17 juin 2014

Book is awesome. A lot of fun to browse through and figure out what movie is being depicted. I would buy a third one if he makes it.
