MW2: Frozen Crossing…

Posted in Adaptation, Movies, Short Films, Video Games on April 8, 2010 by Matt

For now, this is as close as we’ll get to seeing a live action Modern Warfare movie.  And it’s probably best, as Hollywood will end up butchering it.  The movie draws upon some similarities from the game: the snow level, and Ghost and Roach (called Dust and Spectre in the short movie, because of “security concerns”).  It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to make something as high quality and awesome as this movie.  I’m excited because they have the second chapter filmed already, they just have to go through the post-production process.  Oh, and one last thing…they made this movie for approximately $209.42.

Nosaj Thing…

Posted in Movies, Music on February 21, 2010 by Matt

I came across this electronic artist the other day when I was looking for new music to listen to.  Jason Chung (Jason = Nosaj) creates some ethereal synth/hip hop beats (check out: ‘Fog‘ and ‘Lords’).  Although he’s been around for a while, he only has an EP (‘Views/Octopus‘) and a full length album (‘Drift‘) available for sale.  Check out his music, it’s well worth it.  In the meantime, I included two different music videos for one of his songs off the EP.

A.D….

What is this and where can I watch the rest of it?  IMDB has it registered on their site, but the page is practically empty.  From the video, it’s a zombie film called A.D., but it’s animated.  Check out the teaser below.

AMAZING Aliens Rap…

Posted in Horror, Movie Clips, Movies, Music, Science on February 6, 2010 by Matt

Here we go again.  10 minutes of pure awesomeness, DJ MAYHEM and Mouthmaster Murf (a.k.a. The Anomalies) have produced a recitation of the entire plot of Aliens in the form of a sick beat and great lyrical flow.  I hope they keep on releasing videos…I hope that they’re next video involves the plot of The Thing, using Ennio Morricone’s chilling score as their hip hop beat.  I guess we’ll see what happens in about 6 months.

Buried…

Posted in Movie Trailers, Movies on January 21, 2010 by Matt

Here’s a teaser for the upcoming Ryan Reynolds movie ‘Buried’.  From the teaser, it seems that the main character, Paul Conroy, is a civilian truck driver who is captured in buried somewhere in Iraq.  All that he is left with is a candle, a knife, and a cell phone (which conveniently has video capabilities).  Not too much is known about the movie: a) Will it focus on just Reynolds stuck in a box for the duration of the film? b) Will it feature other characters as they race get a hold of the money? c) Will we see who the captors are?  Moviegoers attending the Sundance Film Festival will be able to check out this thriller starting on the 23rd of this month.  The rest of us will have to wait, hopefully, for a limited release.  Check out the teaser trailer below.
