“The last one was twenty-two years ago. I just haven’t been racing to do it. Sam Raimi is just a little bit busy making the biggest movies in Hollywood. I used to be busy. Now I’m not. That’s why I’m here. He then joked, “Ash would have to stop occasionally from chasing some deadite to catch his breath. Maybe we could do that, I guess. That would be exciting. Fight in a walker. That would be alright. Hit them with my cane. Fake them out, have a fake heart attack, distract a zombie. I like it.”

Army of Darkness 2

It would appear Bruce Campbell has confirmed “Army of Darkness 2″. It’s going to be a good year.

Visual Effects

Nerdist recently had an interview with Tony Gardner of Alterian, Inc (my favourite VFX artist and studio of all time) and it’s brilliant.
They chat about Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, Seed of Chucky, The Return of the Living Dead, Army of Darkness, 127 hours and more.
Films I loved and still do for their crazy stories and even crazier effects all without CGI were made with help from Tony, a living legend.

Obama Victory Dance

Alongside the excellent dance skills in this video, it’s a brilliant example of great Steadicam skills, alongside a well constructed and digitally cleaned Body Rig.

Bad Lip Reading

Quite possibly one of the best lip dubs I’ve seen in a long time.  Game of Thrones has been transformed into ”MEDIEVAL LAND FUN-TIME WORLD!” and it’s glorious.
The soundtrack choice for this is perfect, it’s hard to stop watching.

Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins →

Catching Fire

I’ve recently been engrossed in the Hunger Games series of books by Suzanne Collins.
Incredibly hard to put down, I’ve just about finished the second book “Catching Fire” and can’t wait to get onto the third!
Make sure to read a sample.

A Perfect Soundtrack. The Social Network, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

When creating a film, the soundtrack can really make or break certain scenes.  In the film “The Social Network”, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross both do a fantastic job at composing some spine chilling work.
Everything fits where it should, conveying emotions and helping to explain the story.
It’s one of my favourite films, if not just for the soundtrack.

This track is called “Intriguing Possibilities” and it’s beautiful.
