Italian Spiderman

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

If you’re a fan of Danger 5 (and why wouldn’t you be?), then you might want to check out Italian Spiderman, a parody of the Italian action–adventure films of the 1960s and 1970s. It’s related to Danger 5 because Dario Russo and David Ashby, the creators of Danger 5, were part of the creative team for this short film.

Sunday, February 25th, 2018

With Disney having no plans to release the unaltered trilogy to the public market, we have to make due with fan efforts. Efforts such as this project from YouTube channel The ReDiscovered Future, which restores the original 1976 Star Wars trailer using cleaned footage and scenes from the Star Wars Despecialized Edition.

Bulletsafe – How Bulletproof is Tartar Sauce

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Bulletsafe has a web series titled ‘How Bulletproof?’, where they test how bulletproof regular objects are when compared to one of their ballistic vests. This episode, they test multiple jars of tartar sauce against a .50 AE Desert Eagle.

Spoiler, all they get from the tartar sauce is a huge mess, but that’s kind of a foregone conclusion.

Yeah, it’s that kinda movie.

Solo: A Star Wars Story Official Teaser

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

Let’s be honest, no one’s going to feel right playing roles originally filled by Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams, plus ‘The Last Jedi’ was a dumpster fire.

Sunday, February 4th, 2018

The Cloverfield Paradox was is the latest movie in the Cloverfield series, and was in a bit of a distribution hell until being picked up by Netflix. It also premiered tonight, immediately after the Super Bowl.

The Marvel franchise just keeps chugging along.

I’m personally waiting for a proper Howard the Duck movie.

Captain Xander – NERF Rival Minigun

Monday, January 15th, 2018

A year of effort by YouTuber Captain Xander went into the creation of a NERF Rival minigun which is capable of firing 20 projectiles a second, and feeds from a backpack with a capacity of 2000 rounds. The video’s relatively lengthy, but seeing everything from the process to the test fire is worth the watch.

James Yeager Announces New YouTube Channel

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Last month, James Yeager was kicked off of Youtube. But he accepts that he needs Youtube, stating that it’s the second most powerful search engine on earth after Google.? While he pursues alternatives, he’s set up shop at a new Youtube address.

He claims that in its previous incarnation, you only got him at 75%, which was still more than they could handle. While he will still offer product reviews and tactical tips, he plans to throttle it back to 25% this time.

The plan is to reach the masses via Youtube and say what he really wants to at libertv.com. Eventually, he hopes that his libertv project will include others.

V8 Merc’s Commie Tommie

Saturday, December 30th, 2017

6 different firearms. 9 different countries. One seriously cool custom gun. YouTuber V8 Merc created a 9mm rifle using an AK receiver, an SKS stock, a PPSH barrel shroud, a Saiga gas tube, a Yugo M76 bolt carrier, and Suomi KP/-31 drum mags (sadly limited to 10 rounds), plus some HK parts for the bolt assembly. It’s a dead ringer at 50 yards, and is one of the best-looking frankenguns I’ve personally seen.

You can check out V8 Merc’s channel at www.youtube.com/channel/UCgV1vG5HgHRXTS49W1lHQgQ.

The Star Wars: Concept Trailer

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

The Star Wars: Concept Trailer from The DAVE School on Vimeo.

About four decades ago, in this very galaxy, a film maker by the name of George Lucas penned material for a space opera film called ‘The Star Wars’. The idea transformed over time into the Star Wars franchise as we know it today, but during production of the initial idea, Lucas hired noted conceptual artist Ralph McQuarrie to paint scenes of the developing script, to show off to the studio. Using this same art as a reference, a team of graduates from the DAVE School produced a trailer for ‘The Star Wars’, as it could have been.

There also happens to be a pretty good comic that adapts an earlier draft of ‘The Star Wars’. If you track down a copy, it’s worth a read.

READY PLAYER ONE – Official Trailer

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

Based on a book with more overt 80s pop culture references than an entire season of Family Guy, READY PLAYER ONE takes place in the near future, where everyone uses VR headsets and haptic suits to explore and interact with a vast MMO world, in which the Willy Wonka-esque creator has hidden an ‘Easter Egg’ which will grant the finder control of said world, and a literal fortune.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard – Not A Hero Is Now Available

Monday, December 11th, 2017

If you have a copy of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and you haven’t picked it up in a while, the free Not A Hero DLC is now available. It stars series veteran Chris Redfield and takes place immediately after the events of the main game. I played through it earlier, and although it’s short (~2 hours), it’s pretty good.

World War Z Video Game Teaser Trailer

Friday, December 8th, 2017

At first, I was kind of excited about the prospect of a World War Z game. Max Brooks’ take on zombie lore is pretty good, until it became painfully apparent the game is actually based on that crappy Brad Pitt movie.

Oh well…

Death Stranding – The Game Awards Premier

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

So, uh, yeah… that’s totally a Kojima game, all right.

Avengers: Infinity War Official Trailer

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

10 years and 18 movies, all leading up to a giant, purple Josh Brolin beating a bunch of super heroes around with his golden pimp glove for two hours straight.

Yeah, it’s going to be pretty neat.

Avengers: Infinity War releases May 4th, 2018, which, coincidentally is known as Star Wars Day (May the fourth… get it?). Interesting play by Disney on that one.

New Zealand Police Recruitment Video

Monday, November 27th, 2017

The New Zealand Police released an amusing new recruitment video, that kind of reminds me of Edgar Wright’s Hot Fuzz. Unfortunately, it’s been taken down via a copyright claim on YouTube, so you’ll have to click the image above to view it on the official NZ Police Facebook page.

Sunday, November 26th, 2017

YouTube Channel SKM shows off how to make a quadrotor drone from cardboard. Well, specifically ,a model of a quadrotor drone; this one doesn’t work as a drone as-si.

Still, a good DIY project is a good DIY project, after all.

Oats Studios – Praetoria

Monday, November 6th, 2017

More Neill Blomkamp goodness, this time a teaser of sorts for a “huge galactic story”. Kind of a 40K meets Halo vibe to it.


It’s Halloween

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

So here’s a video of a couple of people cruising around New York City on a landspeeder while wearing A-TACS camouflage*.

*In case you think I’m being serious, I’m not. Although…
