All Con 2011: Neil Kaplan Interview

Posted on 22 March 2011 by mjones

Experienced Throat Artist Neil Kaplan takes a minute with The Noob News to talk about his start, what he will and will not say as Optimus Prime, and why there is no whipping of voice actors in LA.

Some of Neil Kaplan’s credits are Optimus Prime, Tychus Findlay from Starcraft II, and more Video Game and Anime voices than you can shake a stick at… go on, try it! I dare you…

P.S.- Here’s the video to which he was referring in the video… where he’s talking about the video… and stuff…

All-Con 2011: Richard Hatch, “Apollo/Zarek” from Battlestar Galactica!

Posted on 21 March 2011 by mjones

Matthew Jones heads to All-Con 2011 in Dallas, TX to furiously fap all the steampunk girls with Mr. Richard Hatch of Battlestar Galactica fame.

P.S.- On a side note, while many may always remember Mr. Hatch as “APOLLO” from Battlestar Galactica, he will always live in my mind as “Dan” from “Prisoners Of The Lost Universe”.

Robert Pattinson As Daredevil Rumors Surface; Said To Be Similar In Tone To Batman Begins!

Posted on 17 March 2011 by Christian

Apparently, there’s some “talk” that the Twilight actor is being looked at to reteam with David Slade on Daredevil, while new details on the tone and story have also emerged…

“The West Hollywood Resnorter” over at Moviehole has a very interesting piece up about David Slade’s planned Daredevil movie (said to be a continuation, rather than a reboot) but two things in particular caught my eye.. The first, is the revelation that the movie will be similar in tone to Batman Begins, while the mention of a bad guy trying to destroy Daredevil certaintly fits in with the rumor that they’re thinking of basing it on Frank Miller’s “Born Again” series.

Visual FX reel from HEREAFTER

Posted on 23 February 2011 by TH3 No08

I’m a big fan of behind the scenes featurettes especially FX breakdowns so I was super stoked to share this. I haven’t seen HEREAFTER yet but seeing the FX work on this reel makes me want to check it out…

A drama centered on three people — a blue-collar American, a French journalist and a London school boy — who are touched by death in different ways.

Film Composer John Barry Now Living-Impaired

Posted on 31 January 2011 by mjones

Film-Composer, the legendary John Barry is no longer breathing air, reported USA today. Responsible for composing the scores of films such as Midnight Cowboy, Dances With Wolves, Out Of Africa and 11 James Bond films, this is a man who’s music will live forever, even though he did not.

Pay your respects, and watch one of these films that he helped to make memorable in the extreme, and for once think very hard about how integral the music is to the theatrical experience.

John Barry Dead at 77

FALL(ing)OUT: A Post-Apocalyptic Love Story

Posted on 21 January 2011 by mjones

Dear Fallout,
We’ve been together a long, long time now. We’ve been through a lot together. I remember when we first found each other. You were so young back then. I was a young kid in the Desert Rangers at the time, and you taught me how to repair Toasters, and occasionally find guns in them. God that seems like a lifetime ago, almost like it happened to someone else in a different universe.

Hey you remember that one time we found that Tardis out in the middle of the desert? That was pretty awesome; Too bad we couldn’t get in there. Or the time we spent too long wandering the desert, and Vault 13 ran out of water? That was pretty shitty, but we reloaded and persevered. And then after we saved their Blue-Jumpsuited asses TWICE, they refused to let us back in. The vault was home, and they sent us into exile… Assholes. So many Memories, huh?

Hey! I know what I wanted to talk to you about! When I was trying to Help Arroyo, and find the G.E.C.K., remember that loincloth I used to wear? I’m still “em-bare-assed” about that… get it? “Em-BARE-Assed“… Get It? Huh? Huh? Heh. Left nothing to the imagination. Oh man, we always end up regretting the fashion choices of yesterday, don’t we? Except for that leather armor, with the one arm torn off, and the one shoulder pad. That still rocks, and hell, between you and me, I’m wearing it right now.

And all the people we’ve known. Most of ‘em are gone now. I don’t want to get morbid here, but everyone we’ve known ends up dying, and its usually just us in the end. You… me… and Dogmeat. Hey, wait a minute. I just realized something; How long are dogs supposed to live? Because by my reckoning, Dogmeat is like… um… let me see here… 120 YEARS OLD?!? Wait wait wait! That CAN’T be right. Lemme see here… um… (scribble-scribble) carry the five… minus 22… no wait… (erase!) Uh… Fuck. Yeah thats right. 120 Years. How the hell does he have the strength to even walk? You know what? A dog that old is mighty suspicious. I think one day, he’ll open his little doggy mouth, and start talking. He’s gotta be a mutant-dog, right? A hyper-intelligent, mutant dog. I think in the end, in a bizzarre twist, he’ll end up being the one who’s orchestrated everything thats ever happened to me, and he will let me know that right before he stabs me in the back.

God I hope that doesn’t happen, that would suck. He’s been our only constant friend all these years. Well… Him and, you know… Harold. But Harold doesn’t really count. He’s just a mopey, depressed half-tard that we occasionally run into. I mean it’s always nice to see him, but he’s More of an acquaintance. By the way, between you and me, when you weren’t looking, he tried to get me to eat his head-fruit. He was oddly insistent about it. Kinda creeped me out really.

We had our good times. And we had our bad times, right? We saw a lot of combat with the Brotherhood Of Steel, and we learned their… “Tactics” for lack of a better word, but it felt somehow empty. We didn’t talk too much then, and I had a feeling that even though things were okay, that that was the beginning of the end for us.

And then it happened… We broke up. You and I were through. I thought, and hoped it was going to be a clean-break, but things are never that easy. You kept coming around, showing up unexpectedly, sometimes we thought we were going to get together again, but at least a couple of times we were smart enough to stop before we even got started again. We planned that trip to Van Buren, out west, but that fell through. I felt like a such a F.O.O.L. for believing in you when you suggested we try an Online only relationship. You were just messing around with my heart, and dropped me faster than a defective mini-nuke.

We spent years apart, our paths never crossing. I can honestly say that I never thought I would see you again, the only thing left to me; nostalgic memories of all our time together. I had moved on.

And then you came back. You were living way out in D.C. now. I didn’t think I ever wanted to see you again… boy was I wrong. When you came to me and asked me to go with you to the east coast, I went. Damn right, I went. And Oh, the times we had again. Walking under the full Moon; The Ink Spots playing on the radio; It was magic. It felt like the old days all over again, and you seemed fresh and new. I just wanted to get you all to myself, and explore every inch of you, mapping your every curve and detail in my head. I could spend hours, hell DAYS with you and not bat an eye. And I loved every minute of it. Shit… How many heads have we blown up with a single bullet? A Hundred? A Thousand? Too many to count. It’s been great, don’t let anyone say that it hasn’t.

But we need to talk.

I thought it was kind of weird that you wanted to move to Vegas. Its a big decision, but we always have had a problem settling down in one place, so I said okay. You assured me that it would be just as good as D.C., and it is. We’re doing all the same stuff, and hell it even looks the same. I thought it was supposed to look different out here, but I guess I was wrong. They also have WAY less music out here than I’d hoped for. I keep hearing the same 6 songs over and over… but that’s all besides the point!

I want my life back. What I’m saying is that I’ve spent a whole hell of a lot of time with you in D.C., and now I’ve been here for over 38 Hours, and I haven’t even been to Vegas yet. Now I know it sounds on the surface like I have a gambling problem, but that’s not what I’m implying. After opening like the 7-Millionth container last night looking for Ammo or Stimpacks that we can use, I came to a realization.

I want to leave. I desperately want to go home to my wife and children, if they’ll have me back. Maybe they miss me. I want to stop what we’ve been doing, but every time I think I’m going to, you suck me right back in, and I end up with another night gone and sleep-dep the next day. I’m saying that I am just a man… A Man who is too weak to stop.

So I’m asking you… no, I’m begging you, please just end this, and LET. ME. GO. I promise that if you can just do that, then you will have saved my sanity, and that of my loved ones. Will you please set me free?

What?

What’s that?

There’s a building 5 miles away we can see from here?

And it’s probably got a lot of containers that are full of stuff?

Okay. This’ll be just one last quick jaunt… right?

Right.

VHS Hell: Xtro

Posted on 20 January 2011 by mjones

This episode on the new video series “VHS Hell with Matthew Jones” we look at XTRO, the best 1983 British Sci-Fi Movie to feature the eating of snakeeggs and face rape in a tentacle fashion ever! Unlike all those other 1983 British Sci-Fi Movies to feature the eating of snake eggs and face rape in a tentacle fashion, this one is enjoyable.

Making it all the more enjoyable is the excellent Boob-age provided by the simply delightful Maryam d’Abo (making her theatrical debut here), whom you might remember from The Living Daylights and ShootFighter.

The Best of Video Game Voice Acting. Thanks Japan!!!

Posted on 03 January 2011 by mjones

"He wrote it in his blood." "Way to go kid!"

Ahhhh… Voice acting. Games these days need it. Unless you’re making a retro-styled, soon-to-be-showered-with-critical-Praise Indie Game, it’s pretty tough to tell a story without it. Even the most money tight budget titles I’ve played in the last two years have featured pretty passable voice acting. But it wasn’t always so Kids. And it was doubly-wasn’t so for Japanese games.

There’s a lot of reasons we could list for this. Different cultures; Hiring educational translation firms to read your lines for you; or Even just getting the one one fat, American programmer that’s on your Japanese-Based development team to do 80% of the characters. There’s a lot of methods at fault for the wackiness Japan has peed all over our consoles, like some kind of (probably) Japanese originating fetish or gameshow. But lets not look at the end results as bad, so much as we look at them as Awesome. Think about it, won’t you? Thank you.

Red State trailer hits the interwebz…

Posted on 23 December 2010 by TH3 No08

Kevin Smith hates the press but apparently loves the interwebz cause that’s where he dropped an early teaser for his latest flick “RED STATE”. We’ve discussed on the podcast over the last few months our general feelings regarding this film and his approach to distribution and marketing of it and this trailer doesn’t really change any feelings I have for what he’s trying to do. Smith lists the Weinsteins in the credits (Harvey Boys) so I’m assuming he’s got distribution so we may not be treated to the public spectacle of a post screening auction like he promised but as long as it gets out there I guess that’s really all that matters. The trailer looks interesting, lots of action, creepy looking small town folk, and lots of random gun fire.
