Chew on This: "Bazooka Joe" the Movie! 


Michael Eisner, the former chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Company, and his Tornante Co. just hired Mark Hammer to write the script adaptation of "Bazooka Joe," yeah, the comic strip that comes with Bazooka bubble gum.

Bazooka, both the gum and the comic, are part of trading card company Topps'. Eisner bought the company in 2007, hence, the planned film adaptation.

I Love Cinema Retro! Check Out Their Site! 


Their branding slogan says "Celebrating Films of the 1960s & 1970s" and boy, do they celebrate those great decades in cinema!

Even Sir Roger Moore says "Cinema Retro Magazine is a 'Must' For Fans of Movies From the 1960s & 1970s –And They Didn't Have to Pay Me to Say That!"

The 70s has been highly regarded as a great decade for cinema with the emergence of influential films and equally influential filmmakers. Martin Scorsese ("Taxi Driver," "Mean Streets," "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore"), Steven Spielberg (His "Jaws" changed the way we viewed Summer Movies!), Francis Ford Coppola ("The Godfather 1 and 2"), gosh, "Chinatown," "The Deer Hunter," "Kramer vs. Kramer," "Apocalypse Now" and so much more!

Besides showcasing cinema excellence, Cinema Retro also has some titillating but fun sections like Movie Hunks and Goddesses!

So check it out, it's fun, I guarantee you, and you may even stumble a little story about yours truly there :happy

Jon Lee Brody's bio says he's "a 25-year old Eurasian Actor/Producer/Writer/Director. His upcoming film may be titled 'Reborn' but it may actually mark the birth of the new Hollywood 'It Boy'."

Plus, props that he's from the Midwest too :happy
