Lego my droids

Someone re-created the battle of Geonosis, from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, in Lego form. Not only did they recreate the actual battle, with Droids verses Clone troopers, but they also built a Droid factory inside of a mountain--again, all from Lego sets.

And as if all of this wasn't enough, the conveyor belts in the Droid factory all work (well, except for one that broke down). Some great attention to detail here by some creative minds.

The Darkest Hour

Olivia Thrilby co-stars in this really cool science fiction film about an alien invasion.

What sets this one apart from the other alien invasion flicks is that the aliens don't use space ships of any kind. Instead they are beings of pure energy that kill with a touch.

Another thing that sets The Darkest Hour apart from other alien invasion flicks is the fact that it takes place entirely in Moscow, Russia.

Olivia is one of several Americans who get caught fighting for their lives when the energy aliens attack.

Olivia was caught wearing heels at a nightclub when the attack came, so when they had to go out and scout around the city, she had no choice but to go barefoot.

Listening to the director's commentary, it's revealed that when Olivia tripped and fell during one shot, that she had actually broken her foot! So while she was barefoot during one sequence, she spent the rest of the film wearing boots with a hidden cast on her foot.

A damsel kept on hold

A young woman is abducted for ransom. She's kept bound, gagged and blindfolded (as well as barefoot) in a small room by her captors.

The name of the clip is Prandi Jul, and it was clipped by Zahir.

It's a long clip, over eight minutes, and well worth your time. You can view/download the scene right here.

Halloween poster

I saw the original Halloween in the theaters when it first cane out back when I was a kid (I actually wasn't old enough to see it then, but that's a long story). I didn't see any of the sequels in the theaters--and it was just as well, because they weren't very good (the one exception was Halloween III: Season of the Witch, which I thought was pretty good, but it eschewed 'The Shape stalking Laurie Strode' story in favor of a completely different storyline).

Supposedly this new Halloween film--the poster of which can be seen above--will be a direct sequel to the first Halloween. It opens forty years after the first film and will take place that long after the first film, as well.

I can't honestly say that I'm really looking forward to this one, because I've been burned so often with the bad sequels (and the remake film and its sequel, both directed by Rob Zombie, were so awful they made some of the sucky sequels look good). But Jamie Lee Curtis, the star of the original film is back--along with the original actor who played The Shape, so I will give this a shot. If nothing else, it looks like they're finally making a Halloween film that's on the right track.

Jurassic World 2: AH! Run!

It certainly looks like it will be fun, and I'm glad to see that the volcano won't be the climax of the film (at least I'm hoping that's the case). But the more I see of this, the more it reminds me of The Lost World: Jurassic Park, which came out in 1997. I hope it's not a rehash, but we'll see. I'm still seeing it regardless.

And it looks like there will be some underwater dino action here. I like that, because the dinos that swim in the sea are among my all-time favorites.

Getting crazy on the Crazy Train

I love what Postmodern Jukebox did with Ozzy's Crazy Train, giving it a 1940s style big band sound. I also love what the lead singer here, Jennie Lena, does with the song, giving it a lot of spunk. And the fact that she performs it in her bare feet is an added bonus for me.

But that tambourine guy...he scared me. He really, really scared me.... ;) Hope you're having a good start to a great week.
