The D in David

The D in David is a very amusing short animation created by Michelle Yi and Yaron Farkash, in which the statue of David gets embarrassed about being naked around all the other artwork. It is a good concept nicely executed, and I enjoyed the punch line.

Something to Do: Movies

There are three completely different films to select from this weekend, each pointed at a different audience. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows continues with that franchise’s silly fun action/adventure served up Michael Bay style. Approaching the Unknown is a near-future story about a solo mission to colonize Mars which doesn’t seem to […]

Something to Watch: Discs

My favorite movie title this time is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, because I loved it as a book title when Seth Grahame-Smith released it in 2009. I am not normally a fan of Zombie movies, this one made my tiny handful of exceptions, which also includes Shaun Of The Dead and Warm Bodies. Gods […]

Sekirara

Sekirara has a great sound and a lot of energy, as you can hear. The band formed in July of 2014, played live shows all over Japan, and started releasing singles in the middle of 2015. The first track is I Want To Be In Your Memory Long Even One Second from their second demo […]

SING: New Trailer

Anthropomorphic animals doing a popular musical reality show is pretty much the story line here, but it could be quite entertaining if they took the time and effort to involve the correct animators, singers, writers, and stage crew. I think this one has the potential to be very good, if they gave it the right […]

Beauty and the Beast: 2017 teaser/trailer

This variation is from Disney, a live action reboot of the classic animated […]

Autonomous

The short CGI film Autonomous began life as a demo for a bigger story, and was completed by two people in their free time over the course of 2 years. Aleksei Shulga did directing, modeling, shading, vfx, and compositing, while Mihhail Kohtov did riging, animation, sfx and sound design. The music they used was created […]

Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters

The retro TV commercial 20th Century Fox posted for Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters was a hoot, so I had to share it here. And yes, I will be seeing Apocalypse on the big screen in 3D; the X-Men franchise has been getting better with each new outing, so I am seriously looking forward to […]

Something to Do: Movies

There are two good choices this week, with X-Men: Apocalypse set to roll out the next chapter for that franchise, and Alice Through the Looking Glass bringing another Tim Burton interpretation of the classic story. I am looking forward to both, but if I can only make time for one, the X-Men will get my […]

Something to Watch: Discs

I couldn’t find a single new genre release in western Movies or TV, but there are a few eastern titles this week. Tokyo Ghoul √A – Season Two continues the war between Ghouls and Humans, cranking up the action and horror as old friends transform and new perils arise. Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign […]
