"One day you are going to lose everything you have, nothing will prepare you for that day, not faith…not religion…nothing. When someone you love dies, you will know emptiness, you will know what it is like to be completely and utterly alone. You will never forget and never forgive…think about what you have to loose"

from The Crow comic Book written by James O'Barr

Have Your Say!

How do you think Brandon would have been as a husband and father?

I think personally from what I have seen and read, that Brandon would have made a very dedicated and loving husband to his wife. I think he really would have been a man that his children could have really looked up to. Eliza would have been

very lucky to have him as a husband and visa-versa, and any children that they would have had, would have been lucky to have been lucky to have him as their father.

I don’t really know because I didn’t know him personally so It's hard to know for sure, but by the way he portrayed himself in his movies however, I would have to make the assumption that he would have been a loyal and dedicated husband and father. It's really one of those questions where it is hard to know for sure unless you had the chance to meet the person and stayed with them long enough to to get to know them better.

-Wednesday Elektra > moon_dust17@chickmail.com

 

Brandon would have been a wonderful and very dedicated father and husband, since he was going to be a husband in a matter of days when he died; and every interview I have with him on the set of the crow, he was so excited to be getting married to Eliza. I don't see Brandon as a very strict or tough dad at all, I think that stuff would have been up to Eliza.

I imagine Brandon as a fun dad, sort of best friend/dad, I think he would have encouraged his kids to be free thinkers and creative, and I think he would have been very open minded as well, so if his kids ever needed him, he would have been there no matter what kind of trouble they were in. As a husband, I think he would have been very loving, he always sounded very romantic as a boyfriend and partner to Eliza when he was alive, so I think his love for his wife would have only got deeper as time went on.

It seems such a shame that he wasn't given the chance to be a father, if only the if only's were realities.

Poetry

Devils Night Revenge

Blinded by the distant light

He is born from the grave,

Of this very night

Be still, be calm, be brave!

He sets out to make the wrong things right

On this coming devils night

Thunder sounds and lightning crashes,

All those who are evil will burn to ashes

The crow flies on ahead,

Seeking out those who ought to be dead

One by one they all fall down,

As he leaves his mark across the town

The stairway to heaven is high

Leading way up to the sky.

One by one they all fall down.

To their places below the ground

Be still, be calm, be brave.

For look at all those souls he saved

On that dreary night of rain,

Eric Draven will never be the same again

Dedications to Brandon

In memory of Brandon Lee

1965-1993

" The Key to Immortality is first living a life worth remembering"

Brandon's movie, The Crow has had a tremendous impact on my life, I've never seen a more deep and meaningful movie than the crow and I doubt I ever will. In my opinion, Brandon was the only person capable enough to fit the part. Every night my crow posters watch over me and I feel as though they protect me from forces I cannot see or don't want to see.

Brandon may be gone, but he lives on in our hearts and minds forever.
