The Dark Knight Rises Trailer Has Risen
Posted by chrisstrange1 in Movies on December 19, 2011
So the official “The Dark Knight Rises” trailer has been released. Can’t say that it’s blown me away, but see what you think.
And yes, Bane really is that difficult to understand. It took me a few seconds after he spoke to translate it into actual human speech. I have a feeling we’ll need subtitles.
John Carter of Mars: New Trailer
Posted by chrisstrange1 in Movies on December 1, 2011
I’ll be getting back to reviewing the DC reboot comics soon. Right now I’m ridiculously excited for the John Carter of Mars movie. I’m praying that it doesn’t suck. Poor Edgar Rice Burroughs would be a very sad zombie.
Here’s the new trailer courtesy of IGN. Enjoy some epic epicness.
Awesome Fan-Made "Portal" Short Film
Posted by chrisstrange1 in Games on August 24, 2011
Everyone loves the game “Portal”. Even people who don’t play games. Hell, I bet there are undiscovered tribes in South America who hum “Still Alive” while they’re out hunting.
So it doesn’t really come as a surprise that fan films are appearing. And I have to say, this one is goddamn brilliant. Portal: No Escape is directed by Dan Trachtenberg, and it transfers the aesthetic of the Portal universe to a dark, live-action movie.
Do yourself a favor and watch it. Do it now. Now, I said!
Thorin's Entire Dwarf Company From The Hobbit
Posted by chrisstrange1 in Movies on July 19, 2011
If you’ve been watching the interwebs, you might have seen some of the tantalising pictures of Thorin’s band of dwarves from Peter Jackson’s upcoming movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. With the release of the picture of Thorin Oakenshield and his sweet-looking sword Orcrist, the Goblin-cleaver at TheOneRing.net, we finally have the full company of thirteen dwarves.
Jackson and the crew are taking an interesting tack with the look for the dwarves, not falling into the trap of making a group of Gimli-lookalikes. Each dwarf is distinct, and in my opinion they look absolutely fantastic. I’ve heard a few grumbles around the place about the departure from the traditional gruff-looking thick bearded dwarf, especially with respect to Kili (played by Aidan Turner). Sure, his beard may be short and some could argue that he’s too good-looking, but hey, you can’t argue that he still looks like he could kick some goblin ass. Plus, I won’t deny others their eye-candy.
The costumes and weapons look to be up to the stupidly high standards we’ve come to expect from Jackson and Co, and everything looks to be on track for an awesome couple of movies. I don’t know about you, but I’ll be rushing into the theatre the first chance I get, giggling like a Tolkien geek.
So what do you think of the dwarves? Are you as excited as I am?
