"It Can't Rain All The Time" - Happy Birthday Brandon Lee



Brandon Lee only made six films in his lifetime, with some television under his belt. And his untimely death in 1993 extinguished the flame of his promise.
Fortunately, his last film gave him a piece of art that will help keep his memory alive forever. And that was 1994's "The Crow," a beautifully dark and spectacular comic book film. A realization of the genre long before DC and Marvel ramped up their quality projects in the 2000's.
I went with my cousin and brother back in '94 to see it and even before Brandon Lee appears on screen it paints a gothic beauty that not many mainstream films were doing back then.
When the character Eric Draven popped out of his grave it was an absolutely chilling moment. I knew of the accident on the set of the film and it was an unusually gripping scene. Like it had unnaturally brought him back for one more darkly epic moment.
The film is a brilliant comic book film, and literally rocks with it's amazing soundtrack, gorgeous score, bleak gothic art production, and Lee giving the performance of his short lifetime.
Some actors lives and careers are cut short and they never get to at least give a finale that will make them remembered forever.
Brandon Lee did.
And we are all thankful for it.
Happy birthday. Hard to believe he would have been in his 50s. He will forever be young to us.

R.I.P. Brandon Lee.
