How often are you pleasantly surprised by a film? I find that whenever i expect a movie to be great, more often than not it is a flaccid attempt by the writer/director to play on the audiences emotions in an effort to make their film resonate with the viewer.
So when i walk into a film not being able to even remember the title of it, i obviously haven't set my bar very high. My cohort and I were furiously trying to remember the title, "Safety not Guaranteed" it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, yet by the time we left the cinema, i don't think i will ever forget the title of this film again.
Something i find from most of the 2012 films i have watched this year is that they lack heart and genuine emotion, Safety not Guaranteed has it in spades. while i felt that one of the characters was superflous to the story, their own journey was equally as emotional as the main character.
Considering you have probably never heard of most of the actors in this film, it maintains an exceptionally high level of acting, the script never panders to the audience and the emotion is there, take it or leave it.
Basic plot - A somewhat crazy guy places and ad in the classifieds looking for a someone to go on a time traveling adventure with him, safety not guaranteed. (ooooh, they say the title of the film!)
I really don't want to tell you anything more about Safety Not Guaranteed besides go see it, you won't be disappointed.
Randomer is pretty new on the scene (been round a couple of years). He created that super swell remix of Clouds Consciousness track (also an earlier release on Hemlock)........ then THIS!!! 'We Laugh, We Scream' is soon to be released (October 1) on Hemlock. It is INSANE. Acid, Breakbot, twisted DADDY FUNK. That's it. He's created a new genre of dance music.... DADDY FUNK.
this man is daddy funkin
Boy is this sound a breath of fresh air. Truly boneriffic. BEATBONER of the year below.
This is just the Tits. So apparently this isn't finished yet, a wayward email has enabled this to be posted all over the inter webs, and now you can watch it. Enjoy.
A letter from the creator.
Haha, that is really rather excellent. I did grin quite creepily when I heard the first TIE sound effect... recognised the AT-AT walking sound too!
I won't ask you to take it down, though I really am trying to keep it low profile since it's rough and unfinished (about 30 people have been helping critique it on the 4chan /m/ mecha board, so it was supposed to be only them seeing it until it was complete, but then it got posted on 109, Twitter etc and flew out of control).
Maybe if you could slap a disclaimer in the title or info, saying how it is completely work in progress?
Thanks for having the decency to ask, as well. You are a true gentlemen!
Feel free to stop by /m/, which is where I'll probably be doing future updates. I've been getting some excellent feedback (this version is the third revision and much better than the first one thanks to comments) from there, and will welcome any suggestions!
This is a great watch after listening to the bliss that is Chilly Gonzales' Solo Piano II. Buy it here if you haven't already.
"Now that you all have a copy of SOLO PIANO II, Chilly Gonzales shares a three part short documentary showing you how the album was made. Director Adam Traynor (Ivory Tower) reveals that purest and most microscopic process of recording which took placeback in December 2011, at Paris’ Studio Pigalle where, alone for 10 days, Chilly Gonzales recorded a handful of songs that had made the short list from a hundredor so melodies written over the eight years that had passed since the release of the now iconic Solo Piano".
If only Frodo had known he could have just gone to the Weta Workshop website, buy a replica of the ring, and leave that pesky Andy Serkis in his cave. Surely the journey would have been a lot easier.
Buy your very own one ring to rule them all.
Forged in the fires of Mt. Doom, which is apparently located a short bus ride South-East of the Wellington CBD, Weta is doing a second batch of one rings for just US$99 which is about $275,000 New Zealand shillings. Get your pre-order in now!
