Links to interesting online videos. What can I say, I like to watch these things! :)
Just seen the latest trailer for Christopher Nolans next film, Inception. It looks absolutely awesome. I've liked so many of his films, it's great to see his creativity continue. The film seems to have influences from all over and still be something totally new. The things you can do with computers these days are amazing, it seems there's no limit to the imagination - and this film seems to do some crazy stuff without it looking cheesey or ridiculous. In [...]
Another film I am looking forward to. A lot. The Prince of Persia, Sands of Time, is an awesome video game. The beauty and simplicity of the game makes it a joy both to watch and to play. It's one of the few series where I have played and completed every single one of the games - so naturally I am interested in the new film. It doesn't look very Disney like, but after Pirates of the Caribbean, I guess [...]
Not sure how I missed this. The Wachowskis are working on a new movie called Ninja Assassin, and being a big fan of both martial arts and the Wachowskis movies (I've loved ALL their films apart from Speed Racer, which I have yet to see, and will probably love). Trailer The trailer is relatively recent and seems to show a rather stylish martial arts flick that is bound to showcase the Wachowskis penchant for over the top action and stylish, [...]
District 9 is an upcoming science fiction movie produced by Peter Jackson and directed by Neill Blomkamp. Originally Jackson and Blomkamp - who were originally paired for the movie adaptation of the HALO video game series. HALO has been put on hold for the time being but it looks like District 9 will tide me over nicely. The film is set for an August 14, 2009 release date. District 9 is based on Alive in Joburg (included below), a short [...]
Pixar really do rock - everything they make is just genius. I saw the trailer for their up coming movie, Up, when I saw Bolt a couple of weeks ago - and have just stumbled upon a longer version so thought I'd post it.
Someone Twittered a link to an A'capella Star Wars tribute today and I thought it was very cool so have posted it below. The video is of one man singing some random lyrics about Star Wars to the tunes of various John Williams movie scores. You can read the lyrics and a little information about the song here. Showing someone at work the video he then mentioned an a'capella version of Michael Jacksons Thriller made by one man, FranÃ§ois MacrÃ©. [...]
Ascension is a rather amusing short film from Australia. I actually bookmarked the link from JazJaz a while ago but have only just gotten around to watching the thing. Very nicely done with a few genuine laugh out loud moments.
Time for some more Potter excitement - the teaser trailer for Half Blood Prince has been released. All Potter fans should check it out as it looks great. Make sure you have your speakers on. The films have been fantastic so far - each one improves on the one before. I just hope the cast all return for the finale as it wouldn't be right to have them change now. [via] Whilst writing this I got an email from Amazon [...]
I saw this when I was having my dinner this evening and thought it was absolutely fantastic. I was pretty sure it was Jamie Hewlet almost from the start, but I didn't realise the music was by Damon Albarn (for those outside the loop this is the duo responsible for the Gorillaz). I have no interest in the Olympics at all, but I really hope the Beeb have more of these up their sleeves. [via]
Big Buck Bunny tells the story of a giant rabbit with a heart bigger than himself. When one sunny day three rodents rudely harass him, something snaps... and the rabbit ain't no bunny anymore! In the typical cartoon tradition he prepares the nasty rodents a comical revenge. Big Buck Bunny is an animation, created in Blender - an open source 3d art program. I tried Blender many moons ago and it was painful to use. I suspect that's because I [...]
Found a video of Wall-E on Electroplankton and am loving it. This has to be the best marketing campaign ever. Oh - and case you've missed it. Wall-E is the latest, soon to be hit, movie from the ridiculously clever folks at Pixar.
