Have you ever watch a movie and then a great scene appears on screen with an actor and thought to yourself, man that was an epic moment or just an iconic scene that will resonate in your brain forever? Well artist Scott Campbell thinks so, and his “Great Showdowns” series celebrates cool moments in films of various genres, from the classics, thrillers, romantic-comedies, action flicks and even documentaries.
The art book collects over 130 paintings of “Great Showdowns” and showcases Scott’s eclectic taste in films like The Roman Holiday, Alfred Hitchcock’s Birds and Psycho, Kickass, Black Swan, Say Anything, and others. The art style is simple and whimsical and will surely put a smile on your face.
The other night I had friends over and showed them “The Great Showdowns” and we had a blast looking at all the art and trying to figure out what movie it was from, what film character it was, and what scene it was from. This book will surely make you have a fun night with friends over.
