Apparently, Americans aren't the only ones upset with current president George W. Bush. In Toronto, on September 10, the movie, Death of a President, is a "fictional documentery" featuring the president of the United States's death. I can't wait to see his response, if the movie will even be able to be released in the US, that is.
New poll up in the forum...
A new movement is raising in the USA against possibles actions planned by the main Netservers, which threaten to regulate a web traffic based on $$$. To lead this movement for free Net, are selected three Net "stars" very-well known: Tron, Peter Pan and an odd woman who I don´t kown about. Click on "the video" to see the protest song (there are some guest stars).
Our project involves a lot of sprite art, and the whole game is original and created by us. The only thing we’ve borrowed is the name and character Megaman and Alouette.
After the demo has been released, we will hold different competitions for spriters. We may also ask talented spriters if they’d be willing to help us out. If you find this project interesting then please take a look at our website. This is to my knowledge the first game developed for Gameboy Advance by non-professional people that use new and original graphics and music, and it’s a lot of fun to add.
Bizarre little flight sim...
"We considered each year as a whole, looking at how many great games came out, just how great each was, and even how they play today. And our final results shocked even us."
Traverse City Film Festival had a preview screening of the new Borat movie based on the popular character from the HBO series Da Ali G Show (and UK television before that). Film director and festival sponsor Michael Moore introduced the movie with director Larry Charles (of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm fame).
There's a lovely little film festival in full swing right now in Traverse City, Michigan (full disclosure: I'm a native of Michigan). Documentary director Michael Moore, Governor Jennifer Granholm and actor Jeff Daniels were on hand Monday to kick it off. If you happen to be in northern Michigan there are still tickets for sale so come check it out.
My two big must-see movies for this week are Borat and The War Tapes. Any other movies in the lineup look interesting?
I've probably seen the original Back to the Future movie more times any other movie. It was the first movie we owned on VHS and it was years before we bought another tape. Imagine my suprise when I read that the Michael J. Fox role Marty McFly was originally played by Eric Stoltz (Mask, Pulp Fiction, 2 Days in the Valley). The crazy part is that they filmed 6 weeks (6 f**cking weeks!) with Eric Stoltz.
This is obviously very old news, but it just blows my mind to think about anyone besides Michael J. Fox playing Marty.
