Life After Pi is a short documentary about Rhythm & Hues Studios, the L.A. based Visual Effects company that won an Academy Award for its groundbreaking work on Life of Pi — just two weeks after declaring bankruptcy.
The film explores rapidly changing forces impacting the global VFX community and the Film Industry as a whole.
Check out this excellent animated film by Mitchell Hammond from an original concept by Tony Guerrero that pits a future Batman against the Terminators.
30 years have passed since Bruce Wayne survived Skynet’s nuclear blasts in August of ’97. Iron demons now roam the planet, and without the requirement to defend the innocent against crime and injustice, Wayne has seeked refuge in the bomb shelter that saved his life; the Batcave.
Having scavenged the wasteland for resources, he discovers the radio of a dead soldier. There is static over a frequency. Flesh and blood is rising up to the west. With The Stinger; a riot control vehicular unit built before the apocalypse along with a refitted bomb blast vest, Batman makes his way across what remains of the United States to join forces with the man determined to neutralize the electronic menace – John Conner.
Check out the trailer for director Prachya Pinkaew’s The Protector 2.
This film stars Tony Jaa who, I’m happy to say, is finally back kicking serious ass!
Boss Suchart is the owner of an elephant camp. When he is murdered, all evidence points to Kham (Tony Jaa), who was seen with the victim before he died. Kham is forced to run as the police launch a pursuit. Meanwhile, the twin nieces of Boss Suchart (Jija Yanin Wismitanan and Teerada Kittisiriprasert) are out for revenge. But luck is on Kham’s side when he runs into Sergeant Mark (Mum Jokmok), an agent sent to Thailand on a secret mission. In another twist, Kham is drawn into an underground fighting ring run by LC (RZA), a crime lord who’s obsessed with collecting top-class martial artists. LC’s fighters are branded by numbers, such as the lethal, beautiful Twenty (Ratha Pho-ngam) and the diabolical No. 2 (Marrese Crump). These fighters are ordered to capture Kham for a special mission.

I’m a little late to this party but it’s still a party just the same.
I’ve just started listening to Cris Velasco and Sascha Dikiciyan’s score to the animated film Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine and boy do I love it.
As I was listening to their epic score I noticed a familiar tune. “That sounds a lot like the music in the 2009 Star Trek trailer!” I yelled out through the house.
I remember being so disappointed when I purchased Michael Giacchino’s Star Trek soundtrack only to find the music on it was not anything like the music that was in the trailer (I still love the actual score, just to be clear).
Nonetheless peoples, say a big HI to the Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine soundtrack, which is basically the soundtrack the Star Trek trailer music made me hope for.
Here’s the Star Trek trailer to refresh your memory:
Now listen to the full Warmhammer 40,000: Space Marine score courtesy of YouTube. Once you know it’s awesome buy the damn thing in better quality via Amazon. It’s bloody fantastic.
As far as I’m concerned this is the best news I’ve heard in a long time.
Original Farscape writer Justin Monjo is writing a screenplay for a brand new spin-off movie – and it sounds awesome.
Set to follow the awesome comics written by Keith R.A. DeCandido, the film will follow John and Aeryn’s son, D’Argo (Little D). Because their baby was exhibiting a set of interesting powers that made him a magnet for galactic villains, we find that John and Aeryn hide their son on Earth to grow up. Now the kid is 19 and ready to go into space with his parents.
I can’t wait for this! Farscape is one of the best (and quite underrated) sci-fi series ever to air in my opinion. If you’ve never seen it then rush over to Amazon and buy it, you won’t be disappointed!
One of the things I used to love about the early episodes especially is how they used to start each episode right in the middle of the action rather than trying to work up to it. Every episode was funny and exciting and fast paced. Not to mention that it had some of the best alien and costume designs even to this day. Oh, and Scorpius.
I hope this movie leads to a new series, but for now I’m more than happy to just get some new Farscape in any form!
Great news (via Tor) for fans of what was long thought to be a dead series!
