  1. Here's one of my favourite shots from the film and the storyboard that inspired it:
  2. Okay, here's an exclusive for you raw-boarders: here's some boards of Eli in action!
  3. Add me to the list of fans. Very few people have commented about how funny it is. I laughed out loud at several moments!
  4. I'll never forget what Mark Millar said about Lobo: "It's like something someone's dad would come up with in order to impress his kids!"
  5. I like both Riddick movies, but do find the lead character a bit "one-note". His consistent coolness, safe in the knowledge of his own abilities, tends to undermine the tension of the situations he's placed in. In contrast, take a look at the template for this sort of character: Clint in "A Fistful of Dollars"... he seriously gets the crap beaten out of him at one point. Harrison Ford is the King of the "Oh Shit" expression. Even Roger Moore's Bond shows a flicker of fear whenever he runs into Jaws. These moments increase the tension. If the hero is worried we should be too. Riddick is far too much of a smart-arse. He has no fear that needs to be conquered... and the viewer is deprived of any sense of triumph over adversity. And that's not very dramatic. In short, the character needs to have his mettle tested.
  6. What's really amazing is: Denzel was the Hughes Brothers' FIRST choice, too!
  7. Wow. I go away to catch a couple of hours sleep and look what happens! I'm waiting to find out just how much of my concept and storyboard art I can show off to you. The moment I get any kind of "all-clear" you'll all be the first to know. Believe me, you ain't seen nothin' yet! Thanks to Gary and Tim for the kind words.
  8. Fantasy Jonah Hex production? "Vikings" era Kirk Douglas!
  9. Hey, Tim. I think I can now go public with my involvement on the film. As you know, I did concept art and storyboards on this incredible movie. And, folks, let me tell you: this film delivers in ways that Terminator: Salvation should have. Action, atmosphere and character. This will be Denzel's "Unforgiven". I promise you. And just wait 'til you see what Gary Oldman does with the villain role! As one producer on the film said after watching Oldman at work: "We've got our Joker!".
  10. I would have preferred Fillion, but I tend to base my cinema choices on director rather than actor, so I'm there nonetheless.
  11. Another remake / remodel / reboot / rehash...? Oh boy, this is so depressing. I'm privileged to work in the comic industry. I get to collaborate and socialise with bright and imaginative people, all of whom are brimming with amazing, exciting and original ideas. But their concepts inevitably get passed over in favour of products with "brand recognition". And yet ticket sales continue to fall... Come on, Hollywood: put two and two together. Show people stuff they haven't seen before... invest in some new ideas and talent. It may take time to build a new brand, but the long term benefits (and profits) could be immense. Sure it's a risk, but no riskier than churning out the same old shit for diminishing audiences, as Terminator : Salvation's returns have shown. Grrrrr. Rant over, people.
  12. This looks fun... and the fact it isn't a sequel, prequel, reboot or spin-off DEFINITELY bumps it up my must-see list.
  13. If there's girl-on-girl licking going on, can I watch?
  14. That voluptuous, green-skinned space-chick that Kirk was shagging was worth the price of admission alone.... mmmmmm....
  15. Commiserations, Tom. Take care, Chris Weston.
