Exit Through The Gift Shop – Sneak Peek!

April 8, 2010

So I don’t really have a huge amount to say regarding this, other than here is the first five minutes of this highly anticipated documentary featuring the brilliant Banksy. Can’t wait to see the rest of it! Enjoy.



Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

March 25, 2010

Last week saw the first look at the new movie by Edgar Wright – “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World“. Being a huge fan of his first two movies (Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz) as well as discovering the “Spaced” TV series he made with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, anticipation was already very high on this project before I saw this – now it’s release date can’t come quick enough! I immediately ordered all available volumes of the Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series by Brian Lee O’Malley this movie is based on, particularly because from what I’ve seen it will likely enhance appreciation of it based on the immense amount of detail lifted from the source material (as hinted at by the attached frame by frame breakdown video clip).


“Enter The Void” Opening Credits

March 1, 2010

From the upcoming movie directed by Gaspar Noé, Enter The Void‘s opening credits are a relentless overload to the senses. If the movie is anything like this sequence, it should be quite a trip.


Facts About Projection

February 9, 2010

This is a wonderful short video about the dying artform of the film projectionist by Studiocanoe. I actually worked part time at an old movie theatre while at art school, and this certainly conjures up some fond memories. Click here for more information.


Spike Jonze’s “I’m Here”

January 25, 2010

This is a trailer for the new short film by Spike Jonze. I’m a huge fan of his work and this looks like another winner, this time a bittersweet love story about two robots. More info can be found here.


Exit Through The Gift Shop – A Banksy Film

January 25, 2010

This is the trailer for “Exit Through The Gift Shop”, a movie by infamous street artist Banksy, billed as “the world’s first street art disaster movie”. The movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this week, and initial reviews seem very positive. I’ve also included a great clip showcasing some of his recent work. Enjoy!


“The Phantom Menace” Movie Review

December 22, 2009

This is a rather genius review of Star Wars Episode 1 and how the franchise derailed itself forever. It’s quite long (running in at 70 minutes, broken over 7 parts) but well work a look as it is incredibly insightful, funny and bang on with it’s analysis. It does get a bit weird in parts – the narrator is meant to come across as more than a little deranged – but overall immensely fun! This was put together by Red Letter Media, a small film company out of Milwaukee, WI. All seven parts after the jump – enjoy!


“Thank You For Smoking” Title Sequence

December 17, 2009

I was doing some research for a project, looking at classic cigarette packaging for inspiration, when I recalled the great opening sequence for the film “Thank You For Smoking”, and upon review it is every bit as good as what I remembered. Beautiful typographic work capturing the look and style of old-school cigarette packaging, created by Shadowplay Studio.
