Another Blog Added
Over on the left-hand side of the screen, I’ve added a new link. Matt Forbeck, paragon of freelancers, has started an official site, which is semi-blog-ish in content. Enjoy.
(Read about his 1K+/hour word rate and his list of published credits if you’re ever feeling the need to be motivated…not to mention the fact that he achieves this with 5 kids, including quadruplets born last year!)
A Christmas Gift
I’ve been very busy with the holiday coming up. Sorry for the lack of regular content.
My first viewings of Fellowship of the Rings and The Two Towers both were featured in this blog, so to continue that tradition, albeit in a neccessarily brief format: I saw Return of the King last weekend. It was brilliant, as I expected. I had a few nitpicks, mostly due to the execution of a couple of my favorite scenes from the books not measuring up to my 20-plus-year-old imaginings of them, but it was as close to perfect as it could have been, otherwise.
Now, back to work. Since I most likely will not be updating before Christmas, I’ll wish all of you Happy Holidays, and leave you with this “gift”, inflicted upon me by the Dastardly Best Friend:
Oh, the pain…
Next Film Obsession
I had mentioned some time ago on this blog that after the Lord of the Rings films were done, the next movie that I’d be geeking out over would be a Jude Law/Gwyneth Paltrow pulp-genre movie, originally called World of Tomorrow, that was filmed extensively with virtual sets.
Well, it’s got a release date (Summer 2004), a new title which indicates it might be the first film of a series (Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow), and a nifty-keen preview website. Check it out.
Mmmmm. Pulpy Goodness.
