Fantastic Beasts

I saw Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them over the holiday weekend, and enjoyed it very much. This is a prequel to the Harry Potter films, and portrays the wizarding world in America (New York City to be exact) as being just as richly vibrant and fun as the HP movies did.

But one thing that I really liked about Fantastic Beasts was how much more darker it was--maybe because it had an adult cast, I'm not sure, but it was a welcome touch. The cast were all superb; it was a real ensemble effort, and the visual effects were also a delight. I'm looking forward to seeing this again.

Yoda sings about them annoying seagulls in this musical parody of Star Wars. Been having a rough day (nothing too harsh, though) today and I really needed something silly like this just about now. So thank you very much, "Bad Lip Reading". I appreciated this!

New picture on Deviant Art

Another evil twin strikes in my latest Poser picture, which you can see right here. I've been so inspired that I've even started a new picture folder for Evil Twins.

Siren

Fumino Kimura stars in Siren, a Manga-based movie where she plays a detective who gets caught snooping. After getting conked on the head (with a golf club!) she wakes up to find herself tied to a chair.

She was fully dressed when caught, but winds up being stripped of her coat and shoes. Later, her captor, a woman, torments Kimura by re-tying her up in a silly cop uniform. I didn't clip this, but you can get these scenes right here.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

The City of a Thousand Planets sounds like a place that Ryta the Jungle Girl should visit. But this is a trailer for a science fiction film that's coming out in summer, 2017. Directed by Luc Besson (whose Fifth Element was a lot of fun), this looks like it might be an enjoyable ride--the eye candy factor alone is off the charts. I'm looking forward to seeing this.

An interesting Star Wars theory

I came across this video that talks about a new Star Wars fan theory regarding who Rey (well-played by Daisy Ridley in Star Wars: The Force Awakens) really is. Most people seem to think that she's Luke's daughter (as I did, too), but this theory suggests that she may be the granddaughter of the deposed Emperor.

He backs up his claims with film clips, and it's pretty interesting. We still have a year to wait for the eighth Star Wars film (although Rogue One is now under a month away! WOOT!), so what else are we Star Wars fans going to talk about in that time? :)

Artwork for the new Ryta book

This is the original artwork, untouched by words, that I created in Poser for the latest Ryta book, Ryta the Jungle Girl and the Gargoyle Terror. The scene depicted in the artwork actually happens in the book, where Ryta is tied down in a death trap with a huge sword dangling over her. Will she escape? Of course she does!

You can also see this pic on DA right here.
