Star Wars The Force Awakens Sounds Supercut

Star Wars The Force Awakens didn’t disappoint when it came to sound editing and design – as well as the familiar “Pew ! pew!” blaster fire and Mouse droids, a whole host of other, new, auditory phrasings laid open a world both old and new, to delight, excite and enchant audiences in a Galaxy far, […]

Merry Christmas – A Shane Black Tribute

“An action movie should, like any other, follow the narrative traditions of literature. That means there should be subtlety, a slow build and a gradual bringing together of all the separate threads of the plot. To see all of it coming together slowly is very rewarding for the audience.” – Shane Black Or, alternatively, you […]

Fear The Dark Side – A Prometheus / Star Wars Mash-Up

“Is the dark side stronger?” Based on this edit, using the creepy music from the Prometheus trailer, it can make the world of Star Wars seem bloody terrifying. More sterling work from @NickSkwalk as a fun way to join in Alien Day 426 – the Alien franchise is coming back to the big screen in a […]

“A New Awakening” – Star Wars Episode IV and VII Shot Comparison

  Star Wars The Force Awakens to some degrees mirrors not just the original film (A New Hope in the grand scheme of the saga) but all films in the original trilogy. Some though took issue with director J.J. Abrams, claiming it’s little more than a retread of the original, right down to the plot. […]

H(er)izons: Theodore Twombly & The City

Her is Spike Jonze’s story of love and seductive technology in a near- future Los Angeles, a richly realised world of urban design and soft corners. Passengers rest ceramic, not styrofoam, cups on walnut window frames as high-speed subways whoosh from city womb to the ocean. Wide plazas and green spaces seem to bring people together when in […]

Do Or Do Not. There Is No Try – Yoda Puppeteering Documentary

Hell’s Club 2 Another Night

Last year, we shared Antonio Da Silva’s inspired mash-up, Hell’s Club, a place where movie heroes and villains cross paths and dance moves, and the actors portraying them can even meet their older / younger personas. Well, Da Silva is back with the follow up, Hell’s Club 2, Another Night, and it’s just as good. […]

Mann(hunter) On The Horizon

The way Michael Mann frames characters in wide shots in Manhunter tells its own story, one of alternate hope, change, wariness, and uncertainty – also a power play between characters respective height and positioning against the horizon. Vimeo user and writer / director Michael McLennan has created a new video entitled Mann On The Horizon, […]
