The Morning Link: Movies That Would Make Great TV Shows

Published by under Uncategorized

“I suppose the more natural fit for Hanna would be SyFy, but after seeing the way they’ve handled everything post Battlestar Galactica, I don’t have a ton of confidence. I’d much rather see this pint-sized killing machine go through growing pains and puberty as a companion piece to the amazing Orphan Black.”

Go here to see the list.

The ABCs of My Web Browser

Published by under Oddly Enough,Uncategorized

Alright, so news has been relatively slow over this holiday break here, so I’ve been bouncing around wacky ideas that I can’t really justify. But I thought this one was sort of fun, and I hope you’ll join in with me in the comments with your own.

You see, I think your web browser can sort of paint a picture of you as a person based on your most frequented sites. I thought it would be fun to see what came up automatically in Google Chrome when I typed each letter of the alphabet, as that would be my most frequented site with that letter. By the end, I’d have an entire list, for better or worse.

So, these twenty-six are mine, and they range from the obvious and big-time to the small and random. Here are a few to get you started, and click to find the rest.

A is for Amazon, where “buy in one click”  has ruined me

B is for BeachBody, where my wife is now a coach

C is for Cracked, the internet’s king of comedy

D is for Debaucherous, because I was looking up how to spell it

E is for Expedia, which books my every flight

F is for Facebook, a weird museum of people I used to know Continue Reading »

The 6 Most Pointless Scenes in The Desolation of Smaug

Published by under Uncategorized

It’s become a cliche bit of criticism: The Hobbit movies are just too damn long.

I disagree. Don’t get me wrong; they ARE too long, but that’s more to do with the fact that the stories are horribly paced, the narrative through-line is almost non-existant, and the adaptation from book to screen has basically rendered the story as a bunch of shallow vignettes.

That’s what really kills Jackson’s latest Tolkien adaptations — not their length, but the sheer amount of superfluous scenes crammed into these things to GET to that length.

And here are 6 of the most pointless elements of this past one.

Five Recent Movie Trailers That Got Me Hyped

Published by under Uncategorized

transcendence

One of the best things about watching a movie in the theatre is watching the trailers that come with the film. Whenever my friends would say that: “we won’t be late, we’ll only miss the trailers.” That’s considered a sin on my book and one way ticket to my friendship blacklist. If you also decide to walk out even before the credits ended in a Marvel movie, then that’s beyond salvageable.

I used to feel not so optimistic about movies because the trailers I’ve seen  in the past were so-so. However, I started to feel more excited about films again after seeing the latest trailers out there. Read on to know which trailers that you should check out…

Between the Lines: My Favorites Graphic Reads from 2013

Published by under Uncategorized

FreeComicBookDay

Sadly, I haven’t had as much time to commit to my reading – both comic- and book-related – in 2013. Things have happened both professionally and personally that have pulled me in a few different directions, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to re-focus in 2014. Maybe I’ll try to incorporate some regular comic book feedback into my weekly contributions here at Unreality Magazine, even if it’s only to offer a quick bit of wisdom on a current read or maybe a suggestion for a title I think should get more attention.

Still, I did have an awful lot of fun with a few specific titles, so much so that I wanted to feature them here in hopes that if you’re looking for a book or a trade for yourself this holiday season, these fully get a ringing endorsement from yours truly. Continue Reading »

The Justice League Meets The Avengers

Artist Aaron Thompson recently came out with this vector-ish piece of art that captures what it might look like if the JLA teamed up with the Avengers. And Spider-Man. Who I assume was on The Avengers at some point in his life. Also Wolverine. Wait really? That would be a hell of an awesome movie.

Now that Disney owns every  Marvel property, how long until we start seeing SUPER crossovers with X-Men, Avengers, Fantastic Four, Spidey and so on?

Below, check out the individual pieces of the picture above so you can better see the detail: Continue Reading »

Gameplay vs. Story in Gaming Narratives

Published by under Uncategorized

What do we mean when we talk about a game’s story?

Most of us would categorize “gameplay” as the specific actions the player commits during the game. While things get hazy when dealing with predetermined quicktime events and the like, I’d say it’s fair to consider those fall under the umbrella of gameplay as well. Most people consider gameplay “better” if it’s complex, difficult, or otherwise viscerally engaging.

One thing gameplay isn’t, necessarily, is a story element.

Watch in Awe as Super-Brilliant Terry Gilliam Explains his Monty Python Animations

Published by under Uncategorized

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xs7WaL44_Iw

A while back, I posted a bit of creative inspiration featuring John Cleese. Today, I’ve got another that stars fellow Python member Terry Gilliam as he talks about the process behind his bizarre, subversive bits of animation.

Gilliam has pretty much always been my favorite guy to come out of Monty Python, on account of his consistently visionary work as a director. What’s amazing about this clip is how evident his genius is on the surface. Every idea he throws out in this segment is great, and they come with a speed and ease that surely rivals anybody else in the industry. I also really want to try this now.

Let me hear from you below! Do you agree that Terry Gilliam is the best Python member, or do you prefer another? What’s your favorite Gilliam animation (I’m partial to that one with the statue of David)? Anyone want to give cutout animation a go now?
