Loot Crate Fear

As you've probably realised from some of my previous posts I get a Loot Crate every month. The crate always has a theme and a variety of items are packed into it catering to the geeky masses that subscribe to it. This month's theme was Fear and although it took longer to get to me than usual it was well worth the wait. To say it was packed full of awesomeness is an understatement. Following from the previous year's theme of survive you can tell they wanted to continue the trend of October being one of their many awesome crates. Although I wasn't subscribed at the time I've found an image from a fellow blogger that adequately shows off what last year had to offer and how this year's matches it if not tops it. Last year it was all ...

Kiss Me Kill Me

Didn't really expect to be writing this post but here I am typing away because the concept deserves to see the light of day as a fully realised film so although I can't support it financially (I'm a poor man with a lot of debt) I can tell you what it's about and why you should be supporting it if you have the money. What it's about If you don't know what a Kickstarter is you haven't been paying attention to this blog or well the world for the past few years. Basically it's a crowd funded business, idea, creation etc. that has rewards attached to how much you pledge. If the Kickstarter project is successfully funded your donation is taken and you get the corresponding reward. If the project isn't funded your money stays with you and life goes ...

Now I might be going crazy or I might just be reading too much into things but I think this season writers have a thing for Doula's. Now I'm not talking about every writer and like I said I might be reading too much into things but in the past week I've seen Doula's on not one but TWO comedies. To me that's too much Doula for this dude. However I can see why they've started to focus on Doula's. Look at the job description: "Doula" (pronounced "doola") is a Greek word meaning "woman servant or caregiver". It now refers to an experienced woman who offers emotional and practical support to a woman (or couple) before, during and after childbirth. A doula believes in “mothering the mother” - enabling a woman to have the most satisfying and empowered time that ...

Kickstarter Film Fest

For the past 2 years Kickstarter has been helping UK artists and filmmakers bring their projects to life. The team at Kickstarter have previously screened a film festival 4 times in Brooklyn with an assortment these films and animations from all over the world. For the past week however for the first time they brought the festival to London with a load of events and of course screenings. As most of you who have followed my blog from the start know, Kickstarter had a big hand to play in me actually starting one after I backed Ghost which is the platform my blog is hosted on. Over the past year or so I have backed a few projects including a film project called Kung Fury. When Kickstarter sent out an email inviting all backers to the festival I jumped at ...

Guardians of the Galaxy

One of Marvel's previously lesser-known comics that rose to stardom with their film feature that was a box office hit this summer is Guardians of the Galaxy. It's been such a hit with fans of all ages that it's getting it's own animated series as is a trend with most Marvel properties that hit it off with fans. I'll admit I was a little sceptical as to whether this would be done right based on previous Marvel animated series that have come out in recent years. In fact most animated series from both DC and Marvel in recent years have not left me with a sweet after taste, more of a sense of wasted time... However some early test footage of the series has been released at NYCC and I have to admit that I am quite looking forward to ...

The Apprentice

It's no secret I don't really like to watch UK programmes but I am one of the many people who just can't resist watching the idiocy magic that is The Apprentice. The Candidates Yet again this year's crop of candidates are bigger, brighter...and brasher. As always they have larger than life personalities that have been carefully selected to create an entertaining few weeks of "business" for us. In reality no one would put these people together in a room but we get the pleasure to cheer and curse each week as we watch. Having just put myself through all 20 of the candidate videos I have put together two lists. Front runners to get the chop first and the cream of the crop. These lists are based purely on what I've seen in their videos Front Runners to get ...
