Hey, guys, this post is just a little bit different from my normal posts. Here is a quick fan film that I directed based on Grand Theft Auto. No particular game is being referenced here, although my opening line is definitely from 4, and the gun shop was made to look like it. I hope you enjoy it, and I look forward to posting more things like this on here!
I recently did a post about the Superman reboot, in which I laid out a shortlist of directors who were in the running. And now, Zack Snyder has emerged as the helmer of the 2012 reboot. While Snyder was not exactly one of my favorite choices for the film, I have enjoyed his previous movies, and hope he does the character justice.
Okay, I’m a Star Wars fan. I know, I know. Throw a rock and you’ll probably hit a Star Wars fan. Well, just when I had sworn off Star Wars forever for the second time, George Lucas finds another way to drag me back in. Not only is the man re-releasing the saga (although we know the original trilogy is all that matters) on Bluray soon, but he’s also going to theatrically re-release the films in 3D, starting in 2012, ending in 2017, the 40th anniversary of the original film.
And now for a side note, kiddies. I know George Lucas did a LOT of wrong by us over the years. I mean, come on. The stiff dialogue in the prequel trilogies, the force bacteria crap, and of course the facepalm inducing Jar Jar. But I’ve always looked at it like this: the prequels are like extended reading. They don’t really matter in the face of the main trilogy. The story of Luke is more important than Whinikin (that’s his new name).
