  1. See, that's where I'm not sure. All the other factors combined in this that are not looking so hot, I can kind of overlook, but "From the writers of Crank and Crank 2", I'm not so sure about story here. I'm still waiting to see more, but I did that with some other film that was talked about endlessly...


    Crank and Crank2 had writers? I'd always assumed the script had been transcribed from the random sampling of noodles in a can of Chef BoyRDee Alphabet Soup!

  2. Hard Boiled is one of those landmark graphic novels that seems to elevate the medium to something more than funny pages. It's one of my favorites, and one that I reread often. Darrow is one of the worlds finest as far as I'm concerned.


    I picked up The Art of The Matrix hardcover years ago and I still flip through it all the time just to enjoy his work.


    Yup. Hard Boiled is truly something Iconic. And thanks to Geoff's obsessive detail you can pretty much find something visually in it you missed on each previous read.

  3. 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!".


    I'm so glad Oldman is still acting. There was a rumor that he'd hung up the towel going round. I love when he plays the villain...

  4. Can't go wrong with photobucket, free as a bird unless you put up a ton o stuff.


    Yeah, I see what you mean. This cat is fucking brilliant.

    Absolutely gorgeous.

    Post the cream when you track that stuff down.

    Love to see more.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll move these over to photobucket later today.


    Good News Everyone!!! I found One of the two I was looking for (thanks to the boys and girls over at CA... ).


    This is "Les Sentinelles"... One of two posters by Michetz that hung on my wall from the age of 16. It was tragically destroyed by my ex-wife's dog years later. Long story. Don't ask.



  5. Please find us some examples of his art!!

    We want to be aware of what you know baby.

    I tried to find two specific pieces that really inspired me in my most formative years as an artist (at the same time as I was discovering some guy who was illustrating Shadowrun and Vampire RPGs). Unfortunately I haven't found those two. I say unfortunately because they really display his mastery of form via simple linework. So I've posted up on the CA.org forums in hopes someone has scans somewhere. That being said. In the interim I offer you these two that I found via bing...





    I'm hosting them on my personal server for now. If the bandwidth gets too massive I'll have to find a more suitable imagehost.

  6. His stuff is really really really hard to find outside of France and Belgium. And aside from his Samurai epic Kogaratsu I don't know if anything he's done has ever seen print in the U.S. but I find his work intoxicating.


    He is a minimalist but in a few strokes of flawless line he's able to communicate depth and weight with a kind of genius that few artists possess.

  7. Yeah, that does seem like something Rodriguez would do. But everything else seemed fine, and really the JH turning into the Jonah Hex title? Come on.


    Rodriguez did an amazing job on Sin City. No movie has ever more closely adhered to source material.

  8. Yes, and unfortunately Sony seems like they don't want any poster designs from me and Tom.

    Even if I did them for no cost (out of Tom's pocket) to them.


    It would be very easy to make this happen and have some tremendous graphics representing the film.

    Instead they seem content to slap some generic (no offense to the designer, I'm sure he was directed to do what he did) straight to video looking imagery on there and call it a day. But it kind of makes sense in some obtuse way since the plan IS to dump it straight to vid.

    But EVEN SO . . . for no expense of their own they could have graphics that would leap off the cover and induce people to pick it up and at least look at it.



    I'll let that sink in.

    You do the math.

    This type of thing isn't relegated to the film industry. I once got commissioned by an author to do the cover of his book. He loved my cover but the publisher refused to use it despite the fact it was the author himself who was saying it summed up his vision for the book. It was going to be a series of books about a Barbarian and i was so excited about doing the whole series... like a "poor man's" Tim Bradstreet doing Punisher covers. Oh well. Maybe next time.

  9. Not a film score but a track used in the trailer for the new Sherlock Holmes movie..... I'm a HUGE E.S. Posthumus fan and I just get pumped every time I hear this:




    Listen to it. Enjoy it.


    Tim, I think you'll enjoy how epic this gets. I fucking love it. That goes for everyone who can respect a good mix of epic, electronic, and classical





    E.S. Posthumus gets played a lot on StreamSoundtracks.com (which I stream at work when I'm not at a facist client who blocks streams as I am at present) despite the fact it's supposed to be a "score" station. I must say I like the tracks I've heard. But I hadn't heard this one yet.

  10. Wow. Over the past week I listened to the entire library of DOF podcasts. Essentially 2 years condensed into several hours. Hearing the excitement of TJ over the 3D process and listening to everyone working on the project going on and on about the cutting edge 3D work... it's not just a tremendous let-down to hear it's likely to be a DVD release. But my heart breaks for everyone involved. All that enthusiasm and excitement. Y'all must be crushed.

  11. That classic build is a Zimmer trademark but Jablonsky puts a charge into it that makes you feel like heaven and hell have just collided. Always look forward to his new work. Was not aware of the Vid Game stuff, thanks for the tip.




    You'd be surprised how much quality score is coming from games today. Both Killzone scores are fantastic in my opinion. And I enjoyed about Half of each Halo score. I tend to favor scores that have intrusive cues especially when they're brass (the kind you said took you out of Pirates). Basically if I can't hum recognizable portions of a score after having listened to it, then it's forgettable to me.


    But I'm with you on Jablonsky. Of all the Zimmer proteges out there he's easily my favorite. If my current comicbook project ever gets picked up to be a motion picture... I'd wet myself if I learned Jablonsky was scoring it.


  12. When I script I must have a score playing. I consequently go through a lot of them. Right now I'm doing something akin to "Colonial Marines" and so have been favoring musicians who do what I refer to as classical sounding scores with modern instrumentation. Steve Jablonsky right now is right in my wheel-house. And to that end I want to clue everyone into his Gears of War 2 score. Seriously worth picking up. And obviously his score was the only part of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen that kicked ass.


  13. Allow myself to introduce my...self.
