A classic track rescued from a Dad Thriller soundtrack, two fascinating books about why special effects look like that, and more
Greetings from Read Max HQ! Every week, sometimes on Fridays, sometimes on Sundays, and sometimes … on another day, I pick out some worthwhile and often overlooked books, articles, movies, and music to recommend to paying subscribers. This week I’ve got:
An unexpected classic groove from a hall-of-fame Dad Thriller
A sweet action movie being re-released on the big screen
Two fascinating books about the special effects industry since Star Wars that help explain why effects look the way they do
