Revenge of the Sith – a steaming pile?

January 7, 2011 Leave a comment

In December of 2009 I posted an article about a rather unhappy Star Wars fan. This guy loved the original three films, and after waiting years for the pre-quels, was thoroughly disappointed. So disappointed in fact that he made a 70 minute video about how much “Star Wars – The Phantom Menance” sucked balls.

Well the disgruntled fan is back. He has just released his expose of “Star Wars – Revenge of the Sith”. This time around the review takes a whopping 110 minutes, which is only about half an hour shorter than the Star Wars film itself. You may not have the time to watch the entire thing, but I’d recommend at least watching the first few minutes… you’ll probably find yourself watching way more than you anticipated.

Neill Blomkamp brings Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley on board for new film

January 7, 2011 1 comment

Mr Blomkamp has been busy indeed over the last few weeks. It seems he has another film up his proverbial sleeve, and has already managed to sign on some pretty heavy hitters. We all remember Sharlto Copley – a local boy who turned in an awesome performance as Wikus van de Merwe, the hero of District 9. He’ll be joined by both Matt Damon and Jodie Foster.

At this point the film hasn’t even been sold to the studios yet, so we have no idea what the storyline will be, or what roles each of the main actors will be taking on. We do know the films name Elysium, and we can be fairly certain that it will be another science-fiction extravaganza. We’ll post more when we’ve dug up a bit more dirt.
