Ever wonder what job you would hold in the Star Wars Universe?

Posted on 02 February 2011 by TH3 No08

If you’ve ever wondered what job you would hold were you living in the Star Wars Universe (and haven’t we all at one time or another) then check out this handy chart I found over at onlineschools.org. Very cool. Incidentally, and much like the real world, there are no podcasting jobs in the StarWars universe. Maybe I’ll try the Potter Universe…

Posted on 01 February 2011 by TH3 No08

This from GeekTyrant.com

The CW just released this new picture of Smallville’s Tom Welling wearing his new “Superman” jacket. Slowly but surely they seem to piecing his outfit together. I expect in an upcoming episode he will receive a pair of red underwear after Ma Kent leaves them in the wash with her red sock collection…

The Stand coming to the big screen?

Posted on 01 February 2011 by TH3 No08

It looks like Stephen Kings (IMO) best work is finally gonna get the Hollywood treatment it’s fans have always clamored for. Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the book will make its way to the big screen via a Warner Bros. and CBS Films co-production. What’s yet to be seen is the size and scope of the story to be told. Stephen King’s “The Stand” is a monster of a book that could probably be turned into a 24 episode tv series. There are a ton of characters that come and go as well as major story arcs that just couldn’t be told in even a trilogy of

Banksy or Mr. Brainwash?

Posted on 01 February 2011 by TH3 No08

If you’ve listened to the podcast over the months you’d surely know my deep affection for the Banksy directed film “exit through the giftshop”. The documentary keeps you guessing who’s who and what are the intentions of the mysterious street artist and his new protege. Now that he’s been nominated for best documentary MBW has stepped up his game and dropped a whole new layout to promote his nomination. (photos from laist.com)

MBW Signature

Is this MBW prepping for the the Academy Awards? If Gift Shop wins, who will go onstage to accept? And…is MBW really Banksy?

This is the statement Bansky made after he found out he was nominated,

This is a big surprise. I don

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

[Rec] Genesis casting news…

Posted on 28 January 2011 by TH3 No08

A few years ago I stumbled across the small spanish horror movie [REC]. It was a verite style horror movie, filmed from various helmet cameras and television cameras to capture the action taking place in a small apartment complex as a zombie/demon/rabies outbreak happened. It was awesome, I loved it, I couldn’t wait to see the sequel [REC] 2 when it was announced and I was not dissappointed when I did see it. Now I’m equally excited to see that they are moving forward with two more films that will fill in the gaps between the first two films as well as spread the story to the world outside the apartment building. Let the awesomeness ensue…

Via geektyrant.com

Blooding-Disgusting has reported that Leticia Dolera has been cast alongside Diego Martin for [REC] Genesis. Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero will split directing duties for the final two films in the franchise,

Visual effects demo reel from the film Black Swan…

Posted on 28 January 2011 by TH3 No08

It’s amazing the amount of detail work that goes into creating a good 3d compositions and the best part is when you don’t even notice it’s there until it’s pointed out. That is certainly the case with Black Swan. As an FX creator myself I’m always on the look out for poor work to ridicule and laugh at so I can look smart but this was not the case for this movie. Most of the effects I did not notice until watching this very cool video. Check out the effects and then wonder quietly to yourself why this movie wasn’t nominated for a best visual effects oscar…

Kill BIll Volume III?

Posted on 21 January 2011 by TH3 No08

Looks like Quentin Tarantino is getting back into the Kill Bill game soon. He posted on his twitter earlier Kill Bill Volume III followed by “The Bride Shall Fight Once More”. Looks like he’s prepping to shoot with a 2013 release date. I love Q.T.’s work especially Kill Bill I and II.

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.

First look at the cast of X-Men: First Class

Posted on 18 January 2011 by TH3 No08

Here’s the first official image from X-Men: First Class. It’s pretty cool i guess. I expected them to be younger, like a middle school version of X-Men. I guess I should have read the synopsis…

Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-MEN.

Bruce Willis to expand role in next installment of Expendables…

Posted on 18 January 2011 by TH3 No08

Apparently while he was being ridiculed by Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes over the weekend, Bruce Willis had other things on his mind, mainly the fact that he would be joining Sylvester Stallone for the sequel to Expendables. Stallone has previously stated on his twitter account that Willis would have a much larger role to play in the sequel and it looks like it’s gonna happen soon. When speaking to Yahoo after the globes he had this to say…

“Apparently it’s going to happen this year,” he said.

When asked if he will be in it — as has been rumored — Bruce confirmed the news.

“As far as I know, barring any unforeseen circumstances, but yeah, I would love to be a part of it,” he said.

It also looks like Jean Claude Van Damme will be joining the fray as well, as long as Steven Segal isn’t involved. Apparently they don’t play nice together.

Wicked new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows poster inside

Posted on 18 January 2011 by TH3 No08

This from the guys over at Geek Tyrant, an awesome take on the forthcoming sequel to HP and the DH. This thing oozes doom and gloom while being covered in artistic badassery. It does a great job of capturing the darkness and sadness that runs throughout the final book in the series that the part one of the movie was never able to capture.
