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
of Aug 31, 2017.
An Canadian company optioned the Charlie Human’s urban-fantasy novel with District 9 writer Terri Tatchell to adapt it for the screen. Click on the link for more info.
Dam does this not look interesting. Hell at least it be something different from the consent super-hero movies.
If you have a social media account then you have probably seen a post or two about Brian K. Vaughan’s book Saga. Over the past few years, I’ve seen the hype but never took the time to read it. Recently, I picked up volume 1 in trade paperback. This book consists of the first six issues. Let me tell you I’m so glad I started reading this book.
Saga is a space version of Romeo and Juliet with many twists. Two soldiers from opposite sides of an interstellar war (Alana and Marko) fall in love, they risk everything after the birth of their daughter, Hazel. Throughout the story they are continually being hunted. The world Brain K. Vaughan has created is simultaneously laughable, wild and emotionally grounded.
One of the main elements I enjoy in this book are the characters. There is a Royal family constructed of humanistic robots with TVs for heads, babysitting ghost, and a lying cat ( a giant cat that serves as a lie detector) and so many more.
The art in this book by Fiona Staples is brilliantly breathtaking. The panels flow so smoothly complementing Vaughan’s writing. Brilliant colors are found throughout this book, as well.
One thing I should mention is this book is not for children. It’s an adult graphic novel. If you can handle a lot of adult topics ( explicit sexual scenes, violence, and language) then I say, pick up this book you will not be disappointed!
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.
Imagine a world where there is no color. Color has been turn into a source of energy. Waking every day to a colorless world. Dan Warner is a desaturator, tasked with sapping beauty from the world but can he continue do so?
