Oh Japan, the Harbinger of Doom

At first I was shocked but then I realized that how is this any different than watching Britney Spears or Nickelback? It isn't different at all. Both are marketed commodities that are polished and set up in order to make everyone involved a bunch of money.

Oh Japan - why do you always have to be the harbinger of doom. And why do you always make it seem so innocent.

Insects vs Mini-Pies

I don't know who came up with this idea but I think we can all agree that is a great use of the the latest slo-mo filming technology.


Tintin is coming!!!!

As I posted back in April of 2008 the Tintin movie is becoming more of a reality or at least a CGI reality. This magazine recently got an exclusive look at what is in the works.
There are a ton of big names involved in this movie (Spielberg, Peter Jackson - producers, Jamie Bell - Tintin, Andy Serkis - Capt. Haddock, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost - Thompson twins, Daniel Craig - Red Rackham). I know names don't always make a movie good but I sure hope it works out in this case.

Here are a couple screen shots from The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn.

This is one of the first Tintin books I can remember reading. Can you tell I'm excited?
