Nothing fancy, just give a short or lengthy review of a movie you just saw in the theater. Also its a discussion on currently trailers for new films. Example Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings aka Noah 2 (lol, but seriously its THAT bad) Rating: 2 1/2 stars I'm all for re-imaginings of repeated epics, largely because I enjoy comparing them and see what made this one good and the others with their individual redeeming quallities. For example the Ten Commandment and the Prince of Egypt. I love both of these films and they are what they are - so I can forgive them for a few indiscrepancies. BUT THIS...*facepalm* I don't know where to begin. This movie despite its repeated deviantions from the biblical account was a boring and tasteless pile of water flavored jello. The acting floored me it was so bad, it was almost as if they did all their diaolog in one take. Even Ben Kingsley couldn't save this film as Nun the father of Joshua. I'll say this, I'll give Christian Bale credit for not going Dark Knight in his portrayal of Moses. But honestly that could have been more entertaining than what was given. Instead we see Moses be a guy with issues who has agruements with God over ethics. Speaking of which God was a bratty, cruel, tea drinking, tween...yyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhh...huh... ... So I hated it. But not too much, I needed to be out of the house while drinking a flat Dr Pepper and munching Reese's Pieces. It did have some moments but in my opinion not enough from where I stand. A movie has never made me hurt this bad inside since Attack of the Clones. I won't stop you from watching for yourself, but be warned.
Space...the final frontier... These are the voyages of the Star Trek discussion thread. Uber-Nerd Snes1993 here. Spanning five series', 12 movies (so far), numerous novels and comic books, games, coffee mugs and T-shirts, this cosmic tale of exploration has touch humanity at some point to 'look up at the stars and dream of new worlds'. Post your love and admiration for this beloved scifi, its blunders, its successes, its past and its future. Live long and prosper.
So I might as well dispel any sense of anonymity as it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make to share with you guys some of the movie projects I've been working on in the past year or so. Some of you may or may not know, but I'm a screenwriter who graduated from the VFS in 2011 and now work on various projects (some still tied with the school). Most of my initial biggest productions were through the school's "Compendium" program, which were high-budget and directed by established filmmakers. The short films I'll be posting trailers for were all shot within 12 hours on a budget of $1500 or less. Many of them have been entered in film festivals across the world, including festivals in Romania, Japan, the UK, and France. First off is my first-ever short film, The Little Mermaid, a dark adaptation of the fairy tale where the titular mermaid is a sideshow freak. Initially winning the Golden Skull at the Screamfest LA festival back in 2011, held at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in LA, it went on to win the Canadian Golden Sheaf and a Leo Award for makeup. We have just begun production on the Little Mermaid feature film and digital series, which you can keep updated on by liking our Facebook page. Here is the short itself (also available on FearNet): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFrDbdAknws These next two are projects of a similar vein where the prompt was "Zombies in Oz". That's what it's about. The first one, No Place Like Home, is currently making the rounds in Japanese film festivals, including the Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXJMltObOTw&feature=player_embedded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vABa9Re6tc&feature=player_embedded The next three are not available to the public yet, but their trailers are available for a sneak preview of what's to come. Presenting the Jabberwock, Tumbling After, and Blood Runs Cold: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVPJkMNikLE&feature=player_embedded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiwUUC-OMcA&feature=player_embedded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiMwXHgkLhE&feature=player_embedded I'll be heading to Nevada next month for Tumbling After's film festival debut. And finally, one more short, a comical reprieve from the rather dark shorts that I've posted previously, one of my final projects from my time at film school.
