Something For The Weekend: Space Opera Overload

2014-Jupiter-Ascending

The latest trailer for the Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending is vivid and ridiculous enough to give us hope that we might get to experience a bona fide space opera later this year.

This makes me very, very happy.

The Next Reality: Game Makers Design The Future

bttf2

A few years ago – and I wish I could find the link, but you’re going to have to trust me – Cliff Bleszinski¬†(formerly of Epic Games and designer of Gears Of War) said that The Next Big Thing would be usable Virtual Reality headsets. He was emphatic, but is also known to be so, leading to his claim being categorised with so many other wild predictions from ¬†industry professionals.

Except now it doesn’t sound so wild.

Review: Noah

Posted by Matthew on March 28, 2014
Movies, Reviews / Comments Off on Review: Noah

Noah

Darren Aronofsky is a film maker who has made some of my all time favourite films, Requiem for a Dream and The Fountain being two of them. His films are not always pleasant to watch but always leave a lasting impression. He’s able to craft a story and a message in such a way that resonate, and characters who are at once larger than life and relatable. Noah is a good example of these skills, though maybe not the best he’s done.

I am just going to say this above the fold though: you should see this movie if you get a chance. I’m about to tell you that it’s good but not great but here’s the thing: we don’t see films like this much. This is a weird movie that takes a story held sacred by many (literally sacred, not Trekkies and Star Trek sacred) and re-imagines parts of it, changes others, and plays with the motivations and struggles of the lead character. It’s a big effects movie with creatures and animals and battle scenes but it’s not a tent pole action movie. TL;DR version, this movie represents a unique film maker taking a lot of chances and a studio taking a chance on him, this is the type of behaviour we need to support. Good? Good.

Now on to the review.

UPDATE: DEBUNKED: Rumour: Disney To Continue Indiana Jones a la James Bond, Potentially With Bradley Cooper

News / Comments Off on UPDATE: DEBUNKED: Rumour: Disney To Continue Indiana Jones a la James Bond, Potentially With Bradley Cooper

Indiana Jones

Update: sources tell SlashFilm that this rumour isn’t true.. I still think it’s the best idea to move forward with though. Original post follows

Remember how one of the problems with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was that Harrison Ford is, well, kinda too old for the role now? Turns out that Disney may end up recasting the role but rather than rebooting the franchise as is all the rage these days they may just go the route of James Bond and make more films with new actors, and apparently at the top of the list is Bradley Cooper.
