Okay, I sang that post title in my head and it just stuck.
With all the news and speculation about the new Star Wars sequel trilogy, and the character-centric back story side-projects, I’ve kind of stayed away from throwing in my two cents other than to say that no matter what comes out, more Star Wars is good Star Wars. Whatever they make, I will be at the theater on release day, gladly forking over whatever cash is required.
In the spirit of all the news, however, we’re seeing a fun resurgence of interest in the franchise. This is lending itself to the creative juices of the internet and we get some fun pieces out of it. Two of which I’ll share with you here. Continue reading
Warhammer Heroes: Wulfrik
by C.L. Werner
Wulfrik has kind of a big problem. One night following a great battle Wulfrik got rather drunk and boasted that he was the greatest warrior in existence. Continue reading
If you ever felt like watching an animated film that blatantly shows off its inspirations, this is the one for you.
Now, a lot of people like to simply brush off this film as a blatant “Star Wars” rip-off. It’s not hard to see how they came to that.
TOTALLY not a lightsaber…
I mean, you have your poor boy who comes across a sword hilt presented to him by a ghostly, bearded apparition that when used produces a sort of energy-blade that makes a nice electro-whoosh sound. He meets up with a smarmy smuggler who has an anxiety-laden, yet pompous droid/ship. Their villain at first wears an ominous mask, but is soon shown to be more than that…. I get it.

I’ve just received an email from a fellow named Tyler Moore, linking me to this info-graphic he helped create.

Checking out upcoming film trailers, I came across this interesting little gem. I’d heard nothing about it previously.
Italian-Argentine filmmaker, Marcelo Grion wrote and directed this film where, from what I can piece together by the trailer, seems to be sort of a combination of the Fugitive and Robocop.
To me, it looks as if the scientist profiled in the beginning of the trailer is perhaps killed for some reason and maybe transfers his consciousness into the experimental machine. At least, that’s what I take from it.
At any rate, I like the robot design, and the film itself looks like it’ll be pretty cool.
It currently has a release listed for some time in 2013.
