In the deregulated 1980s, every popular children’s toy got its own movie. And then starting in the 2000s every popular children’s toy from the same era got its own movie AGAIN, with some results better than others. So when we say “GI Joe The Movie,” we are talking about the animated 1987 feature, not anything made afterward.

Steve Mitchell, King Cohen Director, is a renaissance man with work in the comics, film and TV industries since the 1980’s. Recently he set his sights on telling the story of a filmmaker from the 1970’s who gained a cult following by doing film’s his way. I recently reviewed King Cohen for Popgeeks.net here and was lucky enough to chat with the director about bringing the life of Larry Cohen to the screen in documentary form.
