Under WTF I can't wait! Comes 'Rin!'

This just looks delicious. I haven't fallen in love with anime in a while but some cool tittles seem to be surfacing. Time to break out the old vaporizer and pop in some japanimation-mayhem!
AICN is giving away tickets to Dante's Inferno which looks really fun. I liked the Animatrix stuff they did and the Batman:Gotham Knight.
I like when animation can take advantage of different themes and allow directors to have there own vision. Very exciting to see this media being used this way.

Space Battleship Yamato Live Action...Yahuh!

This just sounds like super awesome rolled into a chewy chocolate shell! I picked the story up from so check them out. But I have to say the shot of the Yamato in the trailer looks great!

I really like what I think is the original music from the show playing at the end.

Thank you Dan O'Bannon

I was a huge fan of Dan O'Bannon. I still am to this day. Two of my all time favorite films are his, 'Alien' and 'Return of The Living Dead.' The latter is everything I love in film. Sci-fi themes, horror and comedy all mixed perfectly.
He also wrote the pilot for SeaQuest the first job I ever had here in Hollywood. I always admired his work and passion for genre. I wanted to use this forum to say Thank You for all the fun, Mr. O'Bannon! This Chic Geek will miss you.

The Return Of The Living Dead - Official Trailer - More amazing video clips are a click away

I really enjoyed Avatar, so I am embedding a little EPK here for you to enjoy.

Ridley Scott does Robin Hood. Hella Awesome!

I think this could be inspired! I seen a lot of sword and sandle movies on the horizon for Hollywood. I'm going to need to start doing sit-ups if I want to be in one of them. Gahh, I hate sit-ups.

Retro Heeelllooo!

At at time when the industry is becoming one giant conglomerate.
This is just really cool and helps illustrate the power of creativity and the distribution ability of the internet. Granted making money on it still offers challengers. Check out this retro trailer for a web-series for Buck Rogers.

Terminator: Salvation can suck my *&$%

Now this is going to kick ass in a direct-to-video kind of way. I like how slow the punches and kicks. But they make up for it with high falls. If you like JCVD then get this on your NetFlixs Cue.

Los Angeles Plays Itself

Sunday, November 29 - 7:30 PM
Back by Popular Demand! LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF, 2003, 169 min. Dir. Thom Andersen. A must-see for Los Angeles history buffs and cinema enthusiasts, who will marvel at the hundreds of archival and film clips revealing an almost secret history of the City of Angels! See it now on the big screen. It will never be on DVD!

I've seen this. Twice. It never ceases to amaze me. I learn something every time I watch it. Like in James Cagney's Public Enemy you can see palm trees in the background of 'Chicago.' Young ones too. If you love film and love Los Angeles take a few hours to look at it from a filmmakers POV.
