Blu-ray Release (via Mvd Visual): October 13, 2017

A new documentary on Mick Ronson, the late guitar player who was one of the key figures in the early success of David Bowie when he became a superstar in the early 1970s, has been recently released called Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story. The film, which includes voiceover by Bowie (who passed away in early 2016), attempts to give more of a spotlight to a man who in essence lived in Bowie’s shadow, something which unfortunately also happens here in this documentary, whether it was intentional or not in its presentment.

Jim Henson’s ‘Labyrinth’ Reboot On The Way With ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Writer
The Movie God   |  

Jim Henson's Labyrinth Goblins

In October of 2014 we shared with you news that Labyrinth, the 1986 movie directed by the late, great Jim Henson, could be getting a sequel. Many were excited by the news, but it was then reported not long after that that sources had denied that a sequel to the puppet filled fantasy flick was actually being made. And we all moved on.

Though fans were excited about the thought of another adventure in the labyrinth with all of our favorite characters, including Jareth the Goblin King (played by David Bowie), prepare for some news you might not be so excited about. It’s now being reported that, not even two weeks after Bowie left us forever, a reboot of Labyrinth is in the works.

James Gunn wanted David Bowie cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy

David Bowie tragically passed last night at the age of 69 after a long battle with cancer. We have already shared our thoughts on the legend, musician, and actor. Those who were influenced by his work have also shared their thoughts on Bowie’s passing giving their own tributes.

James Gunn, whose Guardians Of The Galaxy soundtrack most appropriately featured Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream” from the classic The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars album, shared his own thoughts about how the artist’s work helped shaped his career as a storyteller, and he also revealed that there were discussions about possibly having Bowie cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. More on the story below.

One might not immediately equate the late, great David Bowie with heavy metal, but to dismiss his influence on the genre would be remiss. Between the years of 1988-1992, the Thin White Duke teamed up with guitarist Reeves Gabrels and a rhythm section consisting of brothers Hunt and Tony Sales (sons of famous TV funnyman Soupy Sales) to form a metallic edged hard rock collective known as Tin Machine.

The project only saw the release of two studio albums (both of which were produced by my friend Tim Palmer) and one live record, but in that short span the band would produce some of the heaviest, angriest music of Bowie’s storied career.
