London Film Museum

Ok so this isn’t guitar related but we went to the London Film Museum today. After music , movies are my next favourite thing. Well actually food is better but movies come close! There were three really interesting exhibitions on today; Aliens, Ray harryhausen and Charlie Chaplin.

What man of my generation wouldn’t be excited about seeing a pulse rifle or motion tracker up close? Seriously how awesome were the props for the film Aliens. If I was allowed, I would have put that armour on and run round the museum pretending to be Corporal Hicks. I need to grow up.

It’s a shame you’re not allowed to take pictures in the Harryhausen exhibition as the level of detail in those models is staggering. As I walked around I couldn’t help thinking what a shame it is that we are losing this physicality from movies. Most CGI and 3D nonsense isn’t a patch on the artisty involved here.

The highlight of the Chaplin room had to be the original chicken suit from The Gold Rush. Maybe I just like chicken suits? Mmmm time to stop waffling and point you to the pictures below!

    Those are some sexy props! Did you find out why you couldn’t take photos in the Harryhausen exhibit ?
