Movie Monday: Runaway

Hey all and welcome again to another Movie Monday.

Movie Monday: Project Shell

Hey all and welcome back to another Movie Monday. If you are still checking in and enjoying the short films and I finding then, Thank you.

Again I am happy to bring another amazing piece of work from Blow Studios. So sit back and enjoy.

Year 2086. Kate Sorin never imagined how volunteering herself as “base citizen” for Project Shell would determine her fate. The Western Confederation claimed that the creation of the cyber-clones would be the bridge to a free and equal society, without thinking that their human nature would fight against the role they were created for: to be slaves.
Soon began the riots. The clones started a rebellion, trying to escape using any means. To control outbreaks of violence and retrieve escaped units the Confederation created a specialized police unit, the CHD (Clone Hunter Division).
The individual 0258 escaped impersonating Kate, but everything went wrong and she saw herself forced to kidnap Kate´s daughter to survive, who died in the crossfire. Since that moment, Kate joined the CHD with a single goal, to find 0258 and avenge the death of his daughter.

Up For Another Wolverine Movie?

The-Wolverine-Superhero-Wallpaper Well boys and girls if you still love Wolverine and hoping for another movie you may get your wish. New from Deadline website is that Twentieth Century Fox have started negotiations with  James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman. The domestic performance of the last Wolverine movie did not do that well. The movie did do well over seas and with the combine total of 413 million Fox has decide that another maybe worth undertaking. That is enough money to make “The Wolverine” movie the second highest grossing X-Men film. So there.

Oh course I have heard many who said that it is time to either put the series to rest or get someone else to play Wolverine. HOW DARE YOU!!

Yes the movies have not been that great but they are still making money and I will still spend the cash to see it. Once they stop making money that will be the end. I am sure that soon after all the nerd boys and girls will be screaming “Why did they stop making superhero movies”. Stop your crying you nerds. Just sit back and have a fun time. Gee. Of course the ones that are tired of seeing Hugh Jackman, man your are quick to kick the man of the hill and crown a new Wolverine. Jackman is and will be the person people will see and be the one and only Wolverine. I am one of them. But if and or when he is replace I am sure that the nerds, geek and fandom boys and girls will spit on new guy just as quickly. We love to shoot down people that we praise just as quickly as we declare our love for that actor or actress.

Sorry for the rant.

But as of now one site has reported that it is a done deal. Well until I see another report saying that I am going with they are just in negotiations.

Movie Monday’s: Killzone Intercept

Hey Poppers

Once again I travel the road of YouTube to find you some interesting fan made short films. This time around I found another amazing piece of work done by the Six Foot Five Productions. Killzone Intercept.  Another film that takes a game franchise and expands on the world created for the game. This film was 2 years in the making and it shows. You can see that they took their time making this film and you can see that it was all put on film. The special affects and the details to the costumes are all amazing. The acting is great, excellent and not wooded like other productions out there. The direction by Brian Curtin is great and story written by Brian Curtin and Taylor Robinson shows that what we think is fun in games is hell in reality.

So take sometime and watch Killzone Intercept if you are a fan or not of the game, take a look.

“Killzone Intercept occurs before the events of Killzone 4 as the ISA evacuate Helghan. A small scout squad is called upon to stall a large group of approaching Helghasts that plan to cut off the ISA convoy from reaching the extraction point. Outnumbered, the squad takes on the task with hopes of getting everyone off the planet alive.”
