Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , on September 30, 2009 by getbent57

marvel_logo Saw this great trailer/music video for Marvel’s new motion comic for Spider-Woman.  I really dig the song.  I like the idea of motion comics.  What that is is a comic book that is some what animated with voice.  For a limited time you can watch the first episode of Spider-Woman for free here.  For some reason I cannot get the video to embed, so you can click here to see it.

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , on September 29, 2009 by getbent57

supermanbatman.jpgPicked up Superman/Batman: Public Enemies DVD today (Sept 29, 2009).  I was looking forward to watching this.  I was a bit disappointed.  It was no were as good as the other direct to DVD they put out.  It looks great for sure and the action is good as any of them.  It was the story, boring.  They did this type of plot lots of time before.  Was so hoping they would have done some thing different.  But oh well if they make another one, just pray that was is better.

An ok watch if you are a fan.  Just be warned the story is bland.

film_reel The progress of the short Film we are making is going good.  Still need to get one more day of filming to finish it off.  How ever the first part is done the ruff cut of editing.  It is looking good.  I have started the back ground music.  Once that is done plan to add some sound effects.  The Mark has mock poster made up.  It looks pretty sweet.  Look below to see it.  The real one might be a bit different.  We keep posting as things move along.

Crank: High Voltage Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , on September 24, 2009 by getbent57

crank 2 Been wanting to see Crank: High Voltage for awhile now since I liked the first one.  This one is way better than the first.  I has the same crazy over the top action and comedy, but turned way up.  This movie is very fast paced, the characters are crazy over the top and there are some really funny moments.  I liked this movie.  You have to suspend disbelief.  That is what it make it fun.  It has an R rating for a reason.  Lot of violence and what not.  That stuff is fine but the comedy makes this movie.  I haven’t seen any like this movie before.  Don’t want to give any of that stuff way.

This is a great movie if you suspend disbelief and just have fun watching it. Oh, and the comedy is pretty wacky.

My DIY Steadicam

A few days ago I talked about make this DIY steadicam.  Well today I made one.  It is the same design but I use different pipe to make it.  I used copper pipe instead.  Ended up using copper because it was the only pipe I could find with fittings what would fit.  It is still nice and light. Made a video showing the difference with and with out.  It is being uploaded to YouTube as I type this.  Took some pictures as well of the parts used and the final thing.
