Tron: Legacy Trailer

I don’t know a lot about this upcoming movie, but I remember the original and its cool, ahead-of-its-time SFX, and some amazingly trippy ideas. Before video games got serious, Tron made them epic in a way that changed our perspectives on the digital world and created a mainstream example of the cyber-punk genre. Today, we are putting up a high quality trailer of its sequel, thanks to Neutralx2, our neighbor site for video game and PC related news and reviews. Here’s his opinions on it:

I posted the Tron Legacy Teaser a while back, but that was more of a visual effects test. Now we have an actual trailer to look at. I cannot wait to see this film. Hopefully it will go over better with audiences today then the first film did back in 1982. Also, I have to say that I like the direction Daft Punk is taking the music. It is a departure from the original’s music, but this movie looks darker and grittier, and the music reflects that well. ~Neutralx2

Here’s the vid, and boy oh boy look at how tight it is! Those effects are lightyears beyond the original, while still maintaining its original artwork. I am honestly very excited to see this in 3d, and haven’t wanted to see a 3D movie since Avatar.

Future Film Makers, a club I’ve ran at Salisbury University for the past few years, has wrapped filming and production of its first Feature Film, BRIDE, written and directed by Mike Woodard. I act as producer on the project, and group favorites Thomas England (Man of Action) and James Howe (Gullman, The Spy Wars series), costar in it along with. Steve “Siggy” Young is also a huge part of the production, playing the villainous Professor.

The story is about Cory Hertz, a sophomore at Salisbury University who begins a research project that will change his life forever. Investigating the tragic disappearance from school over a decade ago of the long lost student, Mea Bridell, Cory uncovers a plot of love, obsession, and revenge that leads him on a chase to discover her fate. With his reluctant but faithful friend Douglas in tow, the two spiral down their own path of madness, reaching for the truth until they finally encounter the dangerous person and the malicious grudge that rendered a young love to it’s bitter end.

The finished film will be premiering in Salisbury sometime in October (probably around Halloween) and possibly double featuring with Strike a Pose Films!!! Classic, Curse of Bodangofish.

Be sure to check out Mike Woodard’s youtube page, for more details.


This little gem has been popping up all over the internet lately, and recently Rotten Tomatoes released and exclusive director interview to help flesh out the plot.

Synopsis from

FRANKLYN is about four lost souls, divided by two parallel worlds, on course for an explosive collision when a single bullet will decide all their fates.

This doesn’t sound like a typical action movie, until you hear about the character, specifically the Rorschach inspired Preest,

a masked vigilante detective, searching for his nemesis on the streets of Meanwhile City, a monolithic fantasy metropolis ruthlessly governed by faith and religious fervor. Esser (Hurt) is a broken man, searching for his wayward son amongst the rough streets of London’s homeless. Milo (Bettany) is a heartbroken thirty-something desperately trying to find a way back to the purity of first love. Emilia (Green) is a beautiful art student; her suicidal art projects are becoming increasingly more complex and deadly.

Here’s the link to the Rotten Tomatoes director exclusive.

I’ll probably check this one out, it sorta rocks to the same vibes as The Crow, Oldboy, and Dark City. Those are three of my favorite films, if anyone feels like discussing ’em.

Preview: Push


I’ve honestly become divided on this one. Recently every action movie has traded in the idea of “high strung” or “important” secret agent “foils nefarious plot” (Casino Royale was the last good example of this, Quantum of Solace is a revenge story, demoting it’s “action film” status to “revenge thriller with action”) to Super Soldier Doesn’t Remember Who He Was So Now He Has To Figure it out (Every Bourne movie, Xmen: Wolverine, and pretty much every recent video game in existence). So aside from the Jason Statham movies where, hello, the actor is Jason Statham and that’s all we need to know, we’ve either had secret agents or amnesiac super soldiers as our recent heroes. Or both, thank you Matt Damon.

Personally I’m most divided cause I’m working on my own plot dealing with this kind of character, but it’s going to be different, I promise. Everyone I’ve talked to so far sounds pretty interested.

But this new thing, Push, takes the first idea of a secret agent and the second idea of a super soldier, supposedly does away with the “I don’t remember, so I have to find out!” angle, and amps up the creativity (whatever you have to say otherwise, I’ve never seen a movie where the psychic moves the guns to attack his opponents…ok wait. X-men…WELL HE WAS A MAGNA-KINETIC SO ITS DIFFERENT!), so that we can get something different in theaters…

So I don’t know how to feel about it yet. On the one hand, the previously mentioned Djimon Honsou is in it, and that makes me flash a big dumb grin (You’re an Oscar Nominated Actor for CHRIST SAKES!) ! On the other hand, Dakota Fanning is in it, and she couldn’t even get attention by being raped. (Hound Dog). No, I’m serious, no one saw her last awful film. About being raped. And neither do I, and I don’t intend to, cause Dakota Fanning is scarier than any movie monster since the 1980’s. (That’s sure to lead to a bunch of new readers who search google for “Dakota Fanning” and “Rape.”)

On the other hand, people I know decently, regardless of our differing tastes, have told me it looks terrible but have at least admitted that’s because of the shooting and editing style, which I already figured would be a problem. NO one knows how to shoot action movies anymore, at least not interestingly.

I’m gonna make a more interesting post later. In the meantime, this is just a simple preview for Push. I’m kinda outta enthusiasm for this one, but I’ll tell ya why later.
