Lost Season 6 (Comic-Con)…

Posted in Commercials, Television, Uncategorized on July 29, 2009 by Matt

Just recently at the San Diego Comic-Con, the Lost panel showed off some promo videos to give us an idea of where the sixth season was going. Since the creators have told us that the time travel part of Lost was over, looks like we’ll be seeing the characters in an alternate reality. I’m very curious as to how the show will be set up, because word has it that there won’t be any flashbacks or flashforwards during the final season. There are so many questions I have and absolutely can’t wait to see what these crazy bastards have in store for us starting February 2010.

P.S…There’s a poster lurking around the Web, that I believe was at Comic-Con, that showed all of the characters from season 1-5. Does this mean that Oceanic 6 never crashed on the island and the characters have gone on to live ‘normal’ lives. Well check out the videos from Comic-Con down below, and see what you think.

CFCF and ZOMBIE ZOMBIE…

Posted in Animation, Movie Clips, Movies, Music, Short Films on July 27, 2009 by Matt

Check out these videos, one by two different electronic artists.  The first song/video by CFCF is called “Crystal Mines“, which is synced to a 1974 French pulp crime/mystery movie called Nuits Rouges (called Shadowman in the U.S.).

The second song/video by Zombie Zombie is called “Driving This Road Until Death“.  The video was actually created by Simon Gesrel and Xavier Ehretsmann, and they paid homage to John Carpenter’s 1982 classic sci-fi/horror movie The Thing.  The coolest part is that they made the video using  stop motion video and G.I. Joe action figures.

Last year at the San Diego Comic-Con, they showed off a scene of test for the sequel formerly known as TR2N and online you could only watch a bootleg version of it.  It wasn’t until a year later, today, where they finally released a high quality video of what the test footage entails.  Looks like Tron Legacy just got bumped up to the top of my list of movies to see in 2010.  I included a clip from the 1982 movie, as well as the VFX concept test video.

Humans Glowing?…

Posted in Movies, Science on July 22, 2009 by Matt

I came across this article today on Yahoo! News about how the human body is able to emit light in small quantities.  When I first saw the aticle I couldn’t help but think of Berry Gordy’s The Last Dragon.  Does this mean that the part where Sho’nuff and Bruce Leroy are displaying the power of the glow, it wasn’t some sort incredible idea that the director came up with, but actually science fact?!?

Check out the article down below, it’s actually kind of interesting.  Now watch this video in awe of how AWEsome it is.
