Re:

SPOILER BELOW: . . . The only thing I took issue with was that "test of love" because they built it up a lot, but then I didn't feel like it was a real test at all. Also, how cool were those shots of the world below the water once it all flooded? I love fish swimming around on roads. Ha ha, yeah, t...

I'm not really going to go into a review, par se, as this topic has been discussed and dissected at length at various points around the internet and related media outlets. But there are just a few points I'd like to make regarding the film that I find very interesting. Firstly, I'd like to address t...

Eagle Eye

Saw it tonight and I thought it was pretty well done. I think the characters were well written, with a few exceptions (I feel like they would have reacted differently in some parts based on how we as the audience were introduced to them), but overall, very convincing. The action was suspenseful, and...

hey, thanks a ton guys!

It's actually been an extra fun process, because half the kids I graduated with are putting up their films too that I haven't seen in 4 or 5 months, or for some, at all.

Weird how life keeps moving...

my film Manifest done! Check it out.

FINALLY! I recently finished up the final touches to a film that's taken nearly a year to complete from start to finish. It has been quite an incredible journey, and I've learned tons since I started this process. Now that it's done, I want to share it with as many people as I can. It is currently ...

I believe that you must see a Cohen bothers film several times before you really appreciate it. Their fillms entail a whole lot of little moments. I found this to be true with The Big Lebowski - the more I saw the film, the more I appreciated and picked up small details that I'd previously skipped. ...

I still have a hard time getting my head around the fact that this series was already done in 2D, and then most of those guys get the rug pulled out from underneath them when George decides to let the 3D guys take that almost same exact premise, and put it on the big screen. Talk about a slap in the...

well, with all the animation houses in and around Malaysia, I guess it was really only a matter of time.

Looks cool. Be interesting to see how to public reacts.

I heard the Flight booth was insane. I really wish I'd had the cash to get there myself to say hi to everyone.

my friend just got back from Comic Con, and he grabbed me a copy while he was there. It looks great, and I'm really excited to tear into it.

I'll share my review once it's done.

Saw it. Enjoyed it a great deal. Probably the film's biggest flaw (arguably the only thing standing in its way of being a great movie as opposed to a very good one) was its final half hour not being able to sustain the wonderfully paced, coiled-spring tension of everything that came before it. Inst...

The Clown Prince of Crime steals the show. I'm sure everyone has heard the buzz surrounding Heath Ledgers performance in this movie, with talk floating in the air about Academy Award nominations and Oscar worthy acting. Perhaps all of it is nothing more then polite commentary after his tragic passin...

Inspirational games ... Final Fantasy X : Something about this game, and I've never been able to accurately explain why...but something about it just resonates within me. Visually stunning, and by far the best soundtrack from the series (Final Fantasy IX and VIII are a close second). I've listened t...
