American: The Bill Hicks Story (2009) – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Okay bias alert.  I rate Bill Hicks as possibly the best comedian of the last 30 years.  Bill Hicks is a modern day poet and a controversial genius all rolled into one and this innovative, interesting, simply first rate documentary is a must see for fans, converts or believers that America has given very little to the world.  It’s clever, deletes deep into who Hicks was and leaves you with a huge appreciation of a true comic legend.

Best Bit:Bill’s Early Performances

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
So ever want dot take a peak behind the curtain at what happened when a big Hollywood movie collapses in on itself… welcome to The Death of Superman Lives – What Happened? a tale of spiders, polar bears, remakes, lightning suits and two headed bad guys.  It’s a fascinating look at what would have been Tim Burton’s take on Superman, a warts and all look at the writers, director, cast and vision of the people involved which leaves you, ultimately, wanting to see this movie much more than the upcoming Superman Vs Batman film…

Best Bit: Nick Cage in costume!
