Stormtroopers 365

Posted in english, Funny, Movie with tags , , on June 11, 2010 by NachtVorst

Check out this flickr-set ‘Stormtroopers 365‘ by Stéfan! As the title suggest, it contains 365 images, showing us an insight into the perils and pleasures of two Star Wars stormtrooper action figures. We see them doing their normal things, looking for droids, hating rebel scum, evading wookies and Lord Vader’s wrath and being all round stupid, but also on more private moments like a holiday at the beach or Christmas-scenes. Great use of focus and perspective to make the action figures come alive and sometimes look life-size. The poses of the figures and the situations they’re in are incredibly funny and give the troopers personality. You can just almost see different expressions on the stormtroopers’ faces, happy, mean, surprised, etc. I managed to feel a real bond with the two of them by the end of the set.  Just put on the slideshow and enjoy!

How not to treat a paying customer…

Posted in english, Movie, Tech with tags , , on February 19, 2010 by NachtVorst

Those unskippable ads and trailers on DVD’s have always annoyed me. Luckily I have a cheap Chinese DVD-player that manages to ignore a lot of the ‘do-not-skip’-flags, but not all of them.

Every time I watch a DVD like that, I feel like returning it to the store and getting a copy from the Pirate Bay or somewhere like that, it’s faster and I don’t feel screwed for giving money to a company that disrespects it’s customers.

This image (via BoingBoing) is a perfect illustration of the ease of pirated movies versus the hoops they make their paying customers jump through (click for the entire image):

Terry Gilliam interview @motherjones.com

Posted in english, Movie with tags , on December 22, 2009 by NachtVorst

Nice interview with genius director/animator/python Terry Gilliam over at Mother Jones:

Some talk about his exciting new movie , which sounds like a movie only Terry could make, so there’s no doubt this one will be great again. Also some talk about his relationship with Hollywood, Heath Ledger of course and, most exciting to me personally: he’s still dying to make the Good Omens movie!
