Still here, but very busy

I know it’s been a while, but I’ve been really busy. Sorry for the lack of activity. Real life…what are you gonna do?

Anyway, I can give you a couple tidbits in the mean time:

The CDC actually has instructions for surviving a zombie apocalypse.

No, seriously, it does. I thought that was pretty cool.

What have I watched/re-watched lately? Hmmm…

Romero’s “Trilogy of the Dead” boxed set (“The Night of the Living Dead”, “Dawn of the Dead”, and “Day of the Dead”). Please tell me that you have this set on your DVD shelf somewhere.

“The Zombie Diaries” (part 1 and 2): A shacky-hand-cam “documentary” based on various zombie apoc. survivors. Pretty bleak, but entertaining.

“Stalingrad”: A decent enough version of the battle. I originally saw this with the original German audio and English subs. Was forced to buy the English dubbed version since it was the only one available in Region 2. AGGGGH! Stupid, stupid, DVD regions. I mean…come on already!

“Territory”: A cheap giant alligator movie. Entertaining to drink beer to before going to bed.

“Splice”: Pretty good story about creating new life via DNA manipulation. Who has the responsibility for the things created? (Not to mention some interesting inter-species boom-boom scenes!)

“Gremlins 1 & 2″ boxed set: What can I say? :)

Plus a lot of other crap…

    Gremlins!?!?! Yikes! Just rub your knees with a cheese grater if you want pain! You are definitely a much, much stronger man than I. Thanks for the CDC link about the coming Zombie apocalypse, I forwarded it on to friends who got a laugh out of it. I saw parts of “Splice”, it seemed interesting. I can’t belive the honker on Adrian Brody, tho. He makes Jimmy Durante look like a piker!

  • I’ve been busy filming a rather lengthy episode of Project: Potemkin for the past 17 weeks now, on Friday and Saturday mornings for the most part. I still plan on contributing a couple of reviews when I get the chance to sit down, relax and congeal my thoughts into a gooey mess so I can edit them into an understandable review.

    I’ve caught a lot of movies lately, especially those on Turner Classic Movies. They’re wonderful. Watching “I Walked with a Zombie” right now. It’s pretty darn creepy and very good. So many movies seen, so little time to review any of them.

    One cautionary statement: Do not watch any of the “Rebirth of Mothra” series. Ever. It makes the Gamera series seem remarkably adult by contrast.

    Filming!?! What is Project: Potemkin?

  • It’s our Star Trek fan film series. Our first full-length production will be available on YouTube and Vimeo soon. The one we’re filming is nearly an hour long, and we’ve been filming Friday and Saturday mornings all summer. You can see what’s going on on our website: http://www.projectpotemkin.com. I don’t profess to be as good as some of the other fan films, but I think we’re going to be better than some, especially in the writing.

    Going where no man and/or person has gone before, eh? Well, what can I say but “Excelsior!”

  • Thanks! I occasionally see real SF films and think, you know, my production is better than that. :P
