Curse of the Golden Flower

December 2, 2006

A much anticipated movie from Zhang Yimou, who created Hero and House of Flying Daggers, Curse of the Golden Flower is an epic film that displays a deep plot and heavy artistic elements. By far this film is Yimou’s most expensive productions with a total cost of $45 million dollars; which makes it China’s most expensive film production to date. Throughout the trailer, Yimou’s style of colour co-ordinating scenes and massive epic battles can be easily seen. ‘The plot concerns the volatile balance of power between the King (Chow Yun Fat) and the Queen (Gong Li) and his three sons, which entails betrayal, deceit and passion, pitting King against Queen and father against sons.’ Set to open in New York and Los Angeles on Dec 22nd, the film has already been released to for critics with mixed reviews. Although grande and epic, many feel the film lacks substantial martial arts action and the story is too much focused on drama. Regardless the trailer is a must see and it readily compares to Frank Miller’s film 300.

Just came across this while browsing Vice Magazine. The Rejection Collection is a compilation of cartoons that were pretty much rejected (my apologizes for a lack of a better word) from The New Yorker. The New Yorker, with a history of awards, mostly puts out stuff that’s witty and classy. Accordingly, some of these cartoons couldn’t be published because they were deemed ‘unappropriate’ or just simply did not make the cut. Well this book gives you a chance to take a look at them. Some are quite clever, but nonetheless most are good for a couple of cheap laughs. Check out some favourites by Vice and Eat The Press.

300: The Movie

October 23, 2006

Warner Brothers have just launched the website for 300: The Movie, a historic film based on ‘Spartans’ and adapted from critcally acclaimed and award-winning writer Frank Miller’s graphic novel. Miller also wrote Sin City (with Sin City 2 to be released in the upcoming year as well). Release date for this movie is set in 2007. Expect it to be BIG. Check the trailer. The use of ‘colour themed’ scenes, shown in the trailer, make this to be one of the most anticipated movies in the upcoming year.

Do you Speakeasy?

July 4, 2006

© Copyright 2006

Do you speak easy? Speakeasies were the place-to-be back in the late 19th/early 20th century when prohibition was in place and alcohol was illegal. It represented the cool, the corrupt, the wealthy and the social energy of that period of time. The mystery and the exclusiveness of a Speakeasy is what intrigued the public. The Speakeasy was a bar or a club that was discret and unknown to the public. To get in these establishments, a word or two spoken can get you into one of the most happening places.

As of who we are and what we’re about, we decided to keep that on the low. You’re just going to have to wait. Fall 2006.
