Based on the novel written by Charlie Human this short film is a proof of concept from Micheal Matthews.
Baxter Zevcenko’s life is pretty sweet. He’s making a name for himself as the kingpin of his smut-peddling high-school syndicate, the other gangs are staying out of his business, and he’s dating the girl of his dreams, Esme.
But when Esme gets kidnapped, things start to get seriously weird, and the only man drunk enough to help is a bearded, booze-soaked, supernatural bounty hunter that goes by the name of Jackson ‘Jackie’ Ronin.
Plunged into the increasingly bizarre landscape of Cape Town’s supernatural underworld, Baxter and Ronin team up to save Esme. On a journey that takes them through the realms of impossibility, they must face every conceivable nightmare to get her back, including the odd brush with the Apocalypse.

Does this not look like a fucked up Ghostbuster with a fucked up Harry Potter thrown into the pot. Dam I loved this short. The latest I have about this short and going forward is from an article written by Andrew Liptak for The Verge on Aug 31, 2017

Dam does this not look interesting. Hell at least it be something different from the consent super-hero movies.
DESTINATION WEDDING reunites two of Hollywood’s most adored stars, Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder, as the socially awkward Frank and Lindsay.
When they meet on their way to a destination wedding, they soon discover they have a lot in common: they both hate the bride, the groom, the wedding, themselves, and most especially each other. As the weekend’s events continually force them together – and their cheerlessness immediately isolates them from the other guests – Frank and Lindsay find that if you verbally spar with someone long enough, anything can happen. When debate gives way to desire, they must decide which is stronger: their hearts or their common sense.

“Can one man save a community? And in his struggle to do so, will he find himself consumed by the very darkness he is fighting against? As a new VILLAIN rises, and a QUEEN takes the throne in HARLEM, cracks begin to form in the once unbreakable HERO…”
The bullet proof man, Luke Cage(Mike Colter)is back and protecting Harlem. Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), also returns and appears to be acting as an conscience for Luke in this season. Misty Knight (Simone Missick) is back also with prosthetic arm that she has in the comics. I wonder if any mention that she gets her new arm from Tony Stark???? Mariah (Alfre Woodard) is clearly up to no good once again and tiring to gain more control of Harlem. The premiere episode of the second season is directed by Lucy Liu.
Season 2 of Netflix’s Luke Cage will be hitting your TV screen June 22.
Mixing blaxploitation and really back 70’s sci-fi Matt Haley brings you a bad but entertaining short film. The bad is that this is so dam close to it brings you back those days when if your may age TV series could be this bad. So sit back and travel back to a time when this was TV sci-fi.
In a 1970s version of the future, an egotistical space detective struggles to solve his biggest missing-persons case: finding his birth mother. After his parents’ deaths, space detective Tyson Roderick discovers their secret genetics lab and partners with his trusty funbot Alphie in a desperate quest to rid the galaxy of evil while searching for the secret of his origins – and his long-lost mother.
Oh I remember the days growing up and watching the original Lost In Space . Premiering Sept 15, 1965 the show started out a serious look of the Robinson family as they struggle to survive in a strange and often dangerous universe. Over time the show slowly turned into more of a comedy in my opinion. I spent may hours after school watching the reruns.
Then in 1998 the series was adapted into a major motion picture which starred Gary Oldman, William Hurt, Matt LeBlanc and Mimi Rogers. The film was not well received and considered a finical success. I think I was one of the few that did enjoy the movie.
Now Netflix has come along and updated and gave the show a modern re imagining. So far from the trailer released it does looking like the kind of show it was meant to be.
While this is the first look at Netflix’s epic and modern reimagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series here on Earth, “Lost in Space” has already been made available for viewing in space. Netflix provided NASA with access to the pilot episode, which was transmitted 12 days ago to the International Space Station for astronauts to view during their leisure time
Lost in Space is a Netflix Original dramatic and modern reimagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series. Set 30 years in the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family is among those tested and selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But when the new colonists find themselves abruptly torn off course en route to their new home they must forge new alliances and work together to survive in a dangerous alien environment, light-years from their original destination. Stranded along with the Robinsons are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception. The unsettlingly charismatic Dr. Smith (Parker Posey) is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West (Ignacio Serricchio) is a highly-skilled, blue collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.
