Hannibal Review: “Tome-wan”

banner2

“Tome-wan” opens with a handful of fascinating conversations. But that’s not what you’re going to remember about it. What you’re going to remember is that scene.

Hannibal, the show, tends to portray violence as some sort of grotesque art installation. Despite the terrifying nature of what happens to the bodies in each episode, murder and mutilation are rarely played as pure horror. (Allow exceptions like that poor bastard who ripped himself out of the mural in this season’s second episode.)

In “Tome-wan,” though, Fuller and his crew take the plunge. There’s nothing particularly beautiful about the things covered in blood this time around, and it’s possible as much blood is spilled in this episode as in any that came before.

The Morning Link: Things Movies Get Wrong About Everyday Jobs

Published by under Uncategorized

“We get it, Hollywood likes to take liberties with certain aspects of everyday life to make films and television more entertaining. Unfortunately, though, some of those fictions have managed to escape into reality, so much so we accept it as fact.”

Go here to see the list.

Hannibal Review: “Ko No Mono”

Published by under Uncategorized

Well, to start off, that was one of the strongest cold opens we’ve seen on the show so far. It scores the hat trick of classic Hannibal: a dream sequence, a meal, and a crime scene, and it hits them in mutha-flippin style.

Between Will’s symbolic birth from the stag, the rare delicacy of birds swallowed whole, and Freddie Lounds’ burning corpse speeding in via wheelchair, “Ko No Mono” could have ended with the main titles and I’d feel like I got my money’s worth.

Fortunately, and obviously, it didn’t end there. Season 2’s been slow-burning more than it hasn’t, but things are really starting to pay off. It almost seemed like an episode of a different, more plot-driven show than Hannibal typically is. Thank whoever you need to thank that the show got renewed, because it seems like we’re in for some crazy stuff as we hit the end of the season.

A New Episode of WebCamelot: The Plague!

Published by under Uncategorized

Rob Rat

So, there was some slightly weird timing on my end getting last week’s episodes up, but WebCamelot is full steam ahead! If you need to catch up, here’s the link to the first two episodes. For everybody else, I hope you’ve been taking plenty of Vitamin C… because this week’s episode is about “The Plague”… no? Anybody?

Moving right along. “The Plague” sees this show sort of settling into a bit of a rhythm after the mania of the first two episodes. We have a brilliant addition to our cast with Francis the Priest, but other than that every face is a familiar one. Plus, you get to see us try to be silly about one of the most famous epidemics in Western history!

Superman by Juan Doe

Published by under Uncategorized

superman2

Nothing to see here but a fantastic piece of Superman art by comic cover guru Juan Doe. I went to his site to see if I could buy a print of this, but this is what I found instead:

“Juan Doe is a science fiction anomaly residing within the cozy confines of an alternate reality. The images he creates are snippets of warp speed hallucinations colliding with the split second reactions to the cultural zeitgeist. A shamanistic orphan operating from the recesses of the imagination, his prophetic hand has led to the cultivation of global inspiration and artistic harmony. He represents those lost in the throes of strange universes and quantum dimensions and his experiments with the human psyche has produced a body of work that is the envy of all fitness gurus and workout champs. His art can be seen on the fringes of the Internet, the spotlight of advertorial commissions and the back alley of underground appreciation.”

I guess living anomalies don’t have online stores. That is, however, the best self-description I’ve ever seen anyone write.

Three Reasons Why RuPaul’s Drag Race is the Greatest Reality TV Competition of All Time

RUPAUL

I hate reality.

Whenever I turn on the tube to escape the ho-humdrumming of modern life I’m always looking for a world as unlike my own as possible, but still speaking English (or with decent subtitles.) So whenever I see the proliferation of reality television out there my energy for entertainment drops drastically as I flip from channel to channel watching people wage war over cupcakes and crafts.

That was until I spent a day at the races.

You see, Unrealtors, there’s one reality tv show out there that breaks every mold “assisted” television has crafted…and looks freaking fabulous while doing so. That show is “RuPaul’s Drag Race”,  and today I’m going to convince you that it is not only the best reality tv show competition out there, but quite possibly of all time.

Gentlemen, start your engines, and may the best woman win. Continue Reading »

Game of Thrones Mini-Review: “Breaker of Chains”

Published by under Uncategorized

dany

Alright, I’m traveling right now so I don’t quite have the time to do a lengthy review of last night’s episode. You all saw it, and so I’ll just jump straight into opening things up for discussion. Last night’s spoilers ahead.

Show people:

What do you make of the revelation that Littlefinger was behind the assassination? I thought it was well laid out considering he was practically the only character not seen in two episodes.

Do you think he acted alone or is anyone else involved?

Why is Cersei so stupid that she think Tyrion would poison Joffrey and stand there holding the damn goblet with a dumbfounded look on his face?

How will Tyrion worm his way out of this one? Or would George RR Martin really kill him? Continue Reading »

Get Ready for a New Web Series — WebCamelot!

Published by under Uncategorized

WebCamelot_poster1
(click for full size)

Y’all don’t know this, but I’ve been wanting to write this post for almost a year.

Production is wrapping up on the original comedy web series WebCamelot, a low-budget, independent venture between myself and a couple other (even more) talented fellas. And you can see it soon right here on Unreality!

I’ll save myself the trouble of coming up with a new way to describe this thing and just give you the official pitch:

“In a recent discovery that rocked the historical community, archeologists uncovered a cache of video blogs dating from the reign of ARTHUR PENDRAGON, KING OF CAMELOT.

Hardworking, unpaid interns have compiled these vlogs to create a behind-the-scenes account of life during that time. Looks like we’re going to have to rewrite the history books…  or at least, the interns will.

WebCamelot is a brand new comedy webseries that gets up close and personal with the intimate joys and embarrassing pains of the everyday lives of the citizens of Camelot.”

And it’s actually pretty good! I know, like what else am I going to say.

The trailer drops next Friday, so be looking for it. The episodes will follow soon after. There’ll be eight of ‘em, seasoned with some cool behind-the-scenes goodies for those interested in low-budget filmmaking and VFX and stuff like that.

Watch this space. Spread the word.

George Lucas on the Importance of Visual Literacy

Published by under Uncategorized

This is in danger of being one of the drier subjects I’ve written about on here,* but a) it’s GEORGE LUCAS and b) I think this is relevant to a lot of what we do on the site. Plus I thought it might be a good conversation starter?

It’s not news to anybody that we have access to a truly insane amount of content these days. Still, it’s impossible to understate the importance of being able to handle the media jungle. This stuff is out of control. We have pop songs referencing movies that play in the background of video games, and then those games show up in other pop songs.

I imagine that a command of this or that language became much more relevant after the invention of the printing press. In the modern age, Lucas argues that we’re woefully underprepared for pretty much anything but the printed word.
