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.”

Dam, Dam, Dam

Hey Poppers

So if you haven’t heard or seen by now the first official trailer for Captain America The Winter Soldier is out and boy, oh boy is it awesome. Along with Cap we see the return of The Black Widow and also The Falcon.

“After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.”

Movie Monday’s: Dji Death Fails

Hey all you Poppers.

So once again I bring you another installment of Movie Monday’s

This time around I have found this cute and funny CGI short by Simpals.

“A funny and well animated short film by the talented team at Simpals! Dji is an unusual death. The Dark Knight has appeared in a different form. No, he is not white and fluffy. Dji is just terribly unlucky. All he has to do is to take the soul of a dying man. But the screenwriters prepared some obstacles for Dji. Will he manage to overcome them? You’ll see. “

I found this one to be very entertaining and cute it’s all special way. The CGI is great and music is perfect for this piece. There is no dialogue in the short but the story is told simply and is easy to understand. It is not Death’s day.

So once again I ask you to take a few minutes and watch another piece of work done by talented people.

Arms Race: Escalation Ep 1

Hey Poppers and welcome back to another Movie Monday’s

Keeping up the the Steampunk theme from last Monday I thought I give you another peek of some the Steampunk shorts that are out there in the wonderful land of the internet.

Arms Race: Escalation is the first of a six part mini series form the the production team of It’s a Trap. I have to say that from what I have seen on the screen from the first episode the group has put in a lot of time in creating this world. The acting is fine but better than what I have seen on other productions. Though not a visually stunning as other you can look past that as more particle affects such a weapons and costumes were used.

So take sometime and take a look at this piece and click on the link to go to “It’s A Trap” for more of the story. They also have a blog and podcast.


Do You Still Long For Star Trek To Be Back On TV

StarTrekLogo  So do you long for Star Trek to make it’s return back to the small screen. Well not so small as they use to be in to old days when Star Trek:TOS first made it’s debut on TV.  J. J. Abrams said recently that the chances of that were not likely because “What I’ve been told from the powers that be is that they’re not interested.” The powers to be is of course, CBS.

Recently Bob Orci co-writer and co-producer of both of the Bad Robot Star Trek movies is still interested in still bring Star Trek back to TV.

Orci has been in the UK for an Ender’s Game press junket. One of his interviews was with Joe Michalczuk of Sky News, who dropped a key nugget onto Twitter.

Screen Shot 2013-10-12 at 5.43.38 PM

Now we don’t know who “they’ve” is but could it be J. J. Abrams? Would CBS not want to do a TV and movie link up like that of Agents of Shield and the Marvel movie franchise. Star Trek still has a huge built in audience and with the new fans that have come to enjoy the movies having Star Trek back on TV is not a bad idea.

Would you want to see Star Trek back on TV? I know I would love to see either a reboot of the current time line from the movies or the original time line. Either way it would be nice.
