Bollywood Thriller

Picture 4.pngPicture 2.pngPicture 3.png

And by thriller, I don’t mean a fast-pasted, bad acting film genre. I’m talking the leather clad, hip gyrating, lurking in the shadows of the night, Michael Jackson THRILLER!

This Bollywood version is equally as fantastic. I love how the dance adapts to the cultural dance style of India rather than exactly coping the MJ moves.

The frightening dance moves and the crowd of zombie followers is almost a DEAD match to the video that scared that pants off me as a child. Maybe I could tell then that one day MJ would grow up to be the monster that he portries in his video.

The Life and Death of a Pumpkin

Edgar Allan Poe appears to be the inspiration for this short horror movie of a poor pumpkin. Very well done, funny and even in some ways horrifying. I wouldn’t recommend this film to little kids because they will most likely give up Halloween in a hurry.

It’s Halloween, Charlie Brown!

So this is . Well, I guess it’s time to post something with pumpkins in it. Oh, actually I’ve already did it

Anyway, I’ll treat with these two sweet clips. The original animated Halloween special with the Peanuts gang, and the parody seen in an episode of Robot Chicken. Enjoy!

Best Lightsaber Duel Scene ever?

Best Lightsaber Duel Scene ever?

I think so. For me it is even better than the original Star Wars. Someone needs to hire these guys because they created something fantastic out of nothing. Sweet little ending.

Brian Atene 23 years later

Brian Atene 23 years laterBrian Atene 23 years later

Atene auditioned for Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket and never got the role. His arrogance is so obvious, he even states that Kubrick is lesser director compared to his favorite. Not surprising he didn’t get the gig. Someone dug up the audition tape, he became an online celebrity when BoingBoing featured the video. Soon after, he made another tape. This one is very different, you can tell the guy has lost a lot of his steam. Kinda sad and poignant. I guess we have all been there.

However, start your stopwatch’s because his 15 mins of fame is coming to an end very soon.

Carl Lewis – Break It Up

Carl Lewis - Break It Up

Carl Lewis was the Michael Jackson of the Track & Field world. Incredible talent, a whacko outside of the track. This guy was my hero when I was in my teens as I had aspired to be a sprinter. And there was no better sprinter, in my book, than Carl. His running style was what was taught by track coaches. It seemed like he almost floated in the air when he ran. He had the best finish because he could somehow be more relaxed in the final 30 meters.

This music video is weird, awkward and cheesy. Though I have to admit, Carl’s voice is not bad at all. But the fact that the performer was the greatest sprinter makes the trip even more trippy.

Again, one of my viewers left a comment with tips on some interesting shorts, part of the Sony Dreams project.

Switching to Glide: The Abe and Frida Kogan Story, written and directed by Hank Perlman, is the story of human cannonball Abe Kogan and his wife Frida. “It’s a story of danger, love and dreams.”

Quinn & Coda, by Elma Garcia, is the true and heart warming story of Quinn Haberl and his guide dog Coda.

Simon Burrill’s Dragonfly

Simon Burrill's Dragonfly

After falling into a deep sleep, our hero is ‘stolen’ and whisked through a magical night-time countryside on the back of a truck. His ultimate destination is completely absurd.

Thought provoking in a wistful way. It made me wonder about who really creates someone’s art. Do we actually achieve what we want and don’t know it. Feels like a short more than music video with the music playing the role of a soundtrack.

Mesh 2006

Every year, Channel 4′s Mesh produce four short movies in order to “nurture new talents in the field of computer generated animation”. Let’s take a look at what we got this year.

The imperfectionist, by Asa Lucander and Vicki Kitchingman, is a look at the life of an illustrator thru the pages of his sketchbook.

The Stunt, by Andrew Rae, tells the story of a circus crew forced to perform deadly stunts by their greedy Ringmaster.

Potapych: the Bear who Loved Vodka, by Darren Price, tells the true story of a friendship between a man and a bear. It’s a popular Russian story and I’ve seen it done before, but this one deserves. Really!
