These vintage music billboards from the Sunset Strip will blow you away

I wasn’t alive when L.A. was this cool, but I wish I was. It’s hard to believe, when looking at these awesome music advertisements, that L.A. or even America, was this cool at one time. But then again, there were probably some folks who ran some underground music zines at the time, that were sayingContinue reading “These vintage music billboards from the Sunset Strip will blow you away”

The Guardians of the Galaxy is what kids, thirty years from now, will be talking about

First things first…who the fuck is James Gunn and where the hell has this director been all this time? Oh yeah, he’s been honing his craft like a true auteur, laying back and learning what’s most important “writing a good screenplay”.  In the early 2000’s James wrote films like Tromeo and Juliet, Scooby Doo, ScoobyContinue reading “The Guardians of the Galaxy is what kids, thirty years from now, will be talking about”

An android Bonnie and Clyde story emerges in The Trail’s End

I received an email containing a link to this unique film called The Trail’s End today. The story, written and directed by David Rosenbaum, puts two human-like androids in an 1930’s-1940’s setting and surrounds them in a Barton Fink-like scenario.  The Trails End kinda picks up where say…Blade Runner left off. The android character Clyde,Continue reading “An android Bonnie and Clyde story emerges in The Trail’s End”

Trailer for MAD MAX:FURY ROAD arrives and Hard is an understatement

Probably the one reboot I’m excited about happening is Mad Max. As a child, growing up in the eighties, I never quite got Mad Max or all the other films that came behind it. It had that foreign gloss, as did the music videos from that side of the world, that although I loved, neverContinue reading “Trailer for MAD MAX:FURY ROAD arrives and Hard is an understatement”

There’s been many stories about Dracula. The real Dracula that is.

Sony/Columbia Pictures just bought a Captain Nemo script

Captain Nemo or as the Jules Verne story is commonly known “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”, has been up for grabs for quite sometime. Mostly because of the renewed interest in old science fiction or what is now called Steampunk. It kinda started with the adaptation of Alan Moore’s classic Vertigo title “The League ofContinue reading “Sony/Columbia Pictures just bought a Captain Nemo script”

Trust the folks from New Zealand (Wellington to be exact) to keep upping the ante ,when it comes to innovative ways to tell stories with visual effects. Mis-Drop is one of those, out of the box, science fiction films, that if director Ferand Peek isn’t careful, Hollywood will steal the shit out of and actContinue reading “Mis-Drop is a science fiction short unlike anything you’ll see…ever”

The stakes are high in the trailer for INTERSTELLAR starring Matthew McConaughey

Still not there for me, but getting close. Warner Brother’s dropped the first full length trailer for the new Christopher Nolan directed science fiction film Interstellar starring Matthew McConaughey. It’s pretty sublime and filled with character development and what not, but it lacks that punch “I need” right now ,for me to want to dropContinue reading “The stakes are high in the trailer for INTERSTELLAR starring Matthew McConaughey”
