DC Universe Online – Cinematic Trailer

Great trailer for DC Universe Online. This game has already been released but I haven’t played it. I’m not a gamer really, but I do enjoy a good comic book movie. This little trailer made me go ‘Wheeee!’ – so many cool superhero moments. It’s just a shame that a DC movie will more than likely be a bit of a dud. Marvel get it right almost consistently, but DC seem to struggle (with the exception of a certain trilogy by Christopher Nolan). I hope Man of Steel in 2013 shakes this off, as I am giddy for a new take on Superman.

Life of Pi Official International Trailer

The new film from Ang Lee. Going by the trailer, this could be a terrific film. I haven’t read the book (yet) but it looks to be one of the inspiring, heart-warming movies – with a bloody great big tiger in a boat!

Forbidden Friendship [HTTYD]

Just done watching Dreamworks How To Train Your Dragon.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this film. I would say Dreamworks is doing great work in catching up with PIXAR in the Box Office sales and have always found their animated films to be of extremely high quality (even going so far as to write an essay about The Prince of Egypt for my degree). HTTYD didn’t really appeal to me via the trailer when it first came out at the cinema, but I guess I had forgotten the ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ rule and by-passed the movie. I added it to my LOVEFilm list sometime later and when it arrived I still couldn’t be that bothered to watch it. But… it was brilliant! The animation is astounding, but the film has a lot of what PIXAR has to a fine finesse – heart! The scene where the lead character bonds with the dragon is an absolute highlight. Amazing attention to detail, real emotion and a beautiful soundtrack. Click here for said scene via YouTube.

NewPort State of Mind

Forgot to post this months ago. A truly brilliant spin on Alicia Keys ‘Empire State of Mind’. The original was awesome but this remix brings it to the masses of, well, Wales. Jokes… these two have made a fantastic homage to the original. Loving it!
