Santa Clause is Coming to Town

17 Dec

march of santas

This is probably because I just watched it on the weekend, but this photo makes me think of that movie with Arnold Swartze   Jingle All the Way.

The best Christmas movie though is still Die Hard.  Wait no, it’s tied with While You Were Sleeping because that one is adorable and never gets old.  I forgot that Gremlins is a Christmas movie as well until I watched it over the weekend; it’s a lot more hilarious now than it was when I watched it as a child (I use to have nightmares about that swimming pool scene).

Oh!!  I don’t know how many of you have seen this year’s SpongeBob Squarepants Christmas Special last night but when I saw the commercial for it and realized it’s done in stop-motion, I knew I couldn’t miss it.  The set is actually a lot bigger than I thought it is:

I didn’t mean for this to turn into an impromptu Christmas movies post so I’m just gonna stop here and have some dinner, lol.

El Vendedor de Humo

The film centers around a traveling “smoke seller” who, as the film begins, arrives in a new town to set up shop. With control of seemingly magical smoke which can transform objects at will, it doesn’t take long for him to become the toast of the town. But, as you might imagine, there is a twist in store…

The best way to ensnare a rabbit is to lure it out with carrots.  LOTS of carrots.  You can never have enough carrots.   It’s a fact.

Forgotten Invention: The Revolver Camera

30 Jan

“Revolver Camera (New York, 1938). Colt 38 carrying a small camera that automatically takes a picture when you pull the trigger. At the left: six pictures taken by the camera.” [source]

This is quite possibly the coolest camera ever.
Although I have to wonder, where does one load the film?

FYI, this is off topic but Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is a really entertaining movie.  It’s worth the extra bucks to see it in 3D since it was actually meant to be seen that way — mind you, this is coming from someone who usually hates 3D movies since the glasses never sit right on top of my own frames.  This time around however, there was a lot more depth in visual effects (it doesn’t look like Paper Mario) and the 3D is apparent throughout the entire movie (and not just a small segment like in Harry Potter).

Overall, I kind of felt like the movie’s too short since I want to see a bit more character development but you know what, if that means sacrificing all the crazy gory fights and blood spewing decapitations then forget it; this movie’s awesome for what it is.  It was never meant to win any Oscars or Academy Awards for being a thought provoking film; characters accept their fate, they deal with their problems and move on, end of story.  Honestly, I wouldn’t be opposed to a sequel if they’d expand on the character-team dynamics a bit more.

Oh and be sure to check out the concept art for the witches because they are fantastic!!  Go! Go! Go!

Sonic the Hedgehog — Live Action Fan Film

11 Jan

Can I point out again that this is fan made?
Visually, it’s beautiful.  Pacing is a little slow, and it’s a bit distracting that the leaves and grass don’t rustle when Sonic rushes through but otherwise, it’s gorgeous.

Hollywood needs to up their game — that’s all I have to say.
If the people of Blue Core Studios had a bigger budget and a decent writer, this could be a great summer flick.

On the same note, there’s a fan-made Pokémon live-action trailer
from a few years ago that’s also quite spectacular:

I would pay to see this as a full length film in theaters.

And lastly, FreddieW recently did something similar with The Legend of Zelda.
