Something to Watch: Discs

We have a couple of good choices in the Movie category this week. The Zero Theorem is the latest sci-fi film from Terry Gilliam. As usual with his films, you can watch it as a twisted adventure or you can enjoy the more cerebral aspects. Luc Besson’s tale of forced evolution, Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson [...]

Reaping For Dummies

This tasty little animation, Reaping For Dummies was a graduation project made by five students from the 3D design and animation course at Idèfagskolen in Tønsberg Norway in 2013. It is just one of a huge collection of great animations you can watch over at the CGI Bros. Channel.

Something to Do: Movies

This week Vice appears to be a variation on Westworld, with Bruce Willis’s character having designed a resort where anything goes. The customers can play out their wildest fantasies with robots who look and act like human beings. When one of the fembots becomes self aware and tries to escape things start getting ugly. While [...]

Something to Watch: Discs

The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power is pretty much it this week for live action films, while DuckTales, The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp does it for western animation films. The first is direct to disc, while the second hasn’t been in theaters since 1990. I could also mention John Wick, which isn’t [...]

Passepied: Zeitakuna Iiwake

The band Passepied has another animated music video with the song Zeitakuna Iiwake, which may mean Luxury Excuse. As usual for this band, I enjoy them as much for the animation work as for the music, because it is always an interesting visual to go with the excellent sound.

Welcome to the Future!

We have entered 2015, and there are a lot of good things coming for the year. One of those things is movies, and I thought I should mention a few I am looking forward to. In January, Strange Magic brings a lot of silliness to animated war. February brings the live action/adventure Jupiter Ascending, the [...]

Something to Do: Movies

In Saturn’s Rings covers topics from the big bang to the near future as seen from the perspective of the Cassini-Huygens Mission at Saturn. This is an IMAX film that will be playing in museums and planetariums around the country. Hot Bot is at the opposite end of the intellectual spectrum, but could be fun. [...]

Happy Holidaze

I wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday, from Merry Christmas to Happy Hanukkah and everything in between. I hope 2014 has been a very good year for you, and that the new year brings you one even more enjoyable. One of the things that I enjoy about this season is the lights and festive [...]

A Very Commodore Christmas

In North America in 1982 there were a limited number of companies fighting for the home computer market, and with 20-20 hindsight it is obvious that Apple was the winner of that battle. But my own system of choice that year had the same overall computing power, plus a few dedicated chip sets that meant [...]

A Tale of Momentum and Inertia

Sometimes words are not required, as this animation from House Special proves; enjoy.
