Prometheus

16 Dec

I once worked with a huge Ridley Scott fan who, upon seeing this film, ranted for about a week solid about how terrible it was. (We’d then noticed that we could use the word “Prometheus” to send him into these hilarious rants at our will and got much amusement out of this.) Since then, not one person I’ve spoken to has said it was any good – in fact, many just make fart noises and proceed to complain about the gaping plot holes. With this in mind, I thought it high time I watched it for myself (and wrote about how terrible an experience it is).

Rainbow Man

2 Dec

During my most recent perusal of the interwebs, I found an article about “Rainbow Man” over on Neatorama.

I’m not quite so sure they need to make a full length movie for it (because, wow, it’d be super bad, and even I’m not sure I could endure an hour and a half of it) – however, the trailer in genius and it definitely made me laugh so I thought it’d be worth sharing with you guys.

Behold…THE POWER OF RAINBOW!

Coming Soon: Iron Sky 2!

10 Nov

Well people, it seems like those pesky moon nazis are back (presumably if the film gets funding). And this time they brought dinosaurs! And the Earth is hollow! And, oh god, could it get any more ridiculous? Why, yes, yes it could – they’re reptiles too!

Get this in your eyeholes pronto!

Coming soon: Zombeavers

20 Aug

We bring you “the next level of zombies”…Zombeavers!

After featuring at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, Zombeavers is looking at an October UK Blu-Ray release! This comes after a showing at the Film4 FrightFest in London tomorrow night. It stars such renowned veterans as…no one I’ve heard of. The special effects look…well, they’re special… The plot…sounds perfect – teens, killer zombie beavers, bad vagina jokes… What more could you possibly need?

I’ve not found any info about the US release as yet but I’d imagine it won’t be too long a wait.

The un-science of weather disaster movies

20 Aug

The other week The Mary Sue did a nice post about the science mistakes involved in a selection of weather disaster movies – written by meteorologist Liz Suess. Since our favourite film involving sharks in a tornado is featured, I thought we should make you aware of it.

Films listed include: Absolute Zero (check out Thomas’ review here), The Day After Tomorrow, Twister, Sharknado, and Into the Storm.

Go check it out.

I’m sure everyone is aware by now, but for those of you who happen to be living under a rock…Sharknado 2: The Second One is being shown on UK Syfy channel tonight at 9pm – “minutes after the US”. Squeeeeeeeeee!

Feast your eyes on the trailer to prepare yourself:

In Your Eyes

25 May

While this isn’t really the type of film we’d normally write about on Two Geeks, it is Joss Whedon so it’s relevant in a way.

In Your Eyes

I’d seen In Your Eyes mentioned on a few blogs. It’s a Joss Whedon-penned vimeo-streamed feature film – available for rent for 72 hours online now. He wrote and produced it but it was directed by Brin Hill. It’s an interesting move in a number of ways – it’s a jump to low-budget for Whedon and also the direct online rental aspect is a bit of a change from the traditional methods – or using big streaming services like Netflix. Having had a look around the “On Demand” section of Vimeo, I’m not seeing anything that grabs me as much or has any big names but it’s a nice idea – the site says “most of the cash goes to the maker”.

Anyway, on to the film. Merely 3 minutes in, I was sold. Two kids, miles apart, linked together by a psychic bond. Both get injured when one gets hurt – as we find out when Becky has a sledging accident and Dylan shares her experience in a crowded classroom at school.
