Some fans of Thor think the son of Odin should launch his own shampoo and cosmetics brand. Check out those awesome fake ads for Thoréal:
(Click on a picture to enlarge.)
And here’s a fake commercial with someone who kind of looks like Thor:
So would you buy Thor’s shampoo? Would you become a loyal customer of Thoreal? And last but not least would L’Oréal, the world’s largest cosmetics and beauty company, sue the superhero from Asgard for intellectual property theft? Continue Reading »
Some people wonder who would win in a fight pitting Batman against Superman. Others wonder about prefer to fancy a fight pitting the Flash against Superman. But the real question should be who would win in a fight pitting Goku from Dragon Ball against Superman! Well, as it happens, marvelous fans did try to find the answer to that crucial question.
On one hand there’s a mislead group of fans who think Superman would win…. they even created an interesting CG animated video:
On the other hand smarter fans think Goku would win that one, and a die-hard fan of Goku came up with this flipbook video (in two parts):
The son of Krypton is but a poser sensitive to Kryptonite and Goku is the ultimate warrior. So I have no doubt Goku would beat the hell out of Superman!
Check out Runaway, an awesome animated short film by Susan Yung, Emily Buchanan and Esther Parobek, made at Ringling College of Art and Design:
Plot: “A charming story about a misunderstanding between a man named Stanley and his treasured 1950′s refrigerator, named Chillie. Set in present day, a sad event sends Chillie into a whirlwind of emotional turmoil, and as a result, he runs away!”
Really, he’s till using a refrigerator from the 1950′s? I guess he doesn’t care about his electric bill, because that antique must eat electricity like a hungry troll!
Thanks to Vice, here’s a new hilarious horror short-film written and directed by Riley Stearns:
Plot: “The Cub is the story of a five-year-old girl who reads at an eight-year-old’s level being turned over by her middle-class parents to a pack of wolves to learn ‘strength, self-reliance, and cunning behavior’. The girl is timid at first, clutching to her father’s leg, but as he says, ‘Wolves can smell fear’, so she woman’s up.”
The father and the mother totally deserve what happened to them at the end for leaving their daughter in the care of wolves!
I just spotted this awesome science-fiction animated short film directed by Cole Drumb:
Plot: “Set in the year 2019, PostHuman follows Terrence (voiced by Ulric Dihle) and his dog Nine in an adrenalized world of espionage, assassins, and out of control super science. Terrence agrees to help Kali (voiced by Tricia Helfer, the sexy woman Cylon from Battlestar Galactica), an escaped test subject from a black ops ESP test lab (for those who don’t know, ESP stands for Extrasensory perception), in her plan to free the last surviving imprisoned test subject before he is tested to termination. The assault on the lab is fast paced and intense as Terrence uses every hacker trick he knows in an effort to destroy the base’s defenses and give Kali the opportunity to free her tortured lab mate, Benjamin.”
I’d love to learn more about the world PostHuman is set in! Let’s hope there will be a feature film!
Let’s watch Worlds Apart, a cute short film produced and directed by Michael Zachary Huber:
Plot: “The short film tells the story of a young Central California family caught in an unimaginable situation. Told through the eyes of a child’s teddy bear, Worlds Apart is part cautionary fairytale and part science fiction thriller.”
This short film was completed in 2011. Animation and visual effects were done by students from Cogswell College.
Have to admit that the animation isn’t the best I’ve seen, but the story is powerful! Awesome short film, isn’t it? Continue Reading »
Yet a new awesome science-fiction short film. It’s titled Dr Easy and it comes from the British music video directing team Shynola, it’s their first short film:
Plot: “Starring Tom Hollander alongside Dr. Easy, a medical robot voiced by Geraldine James, the short is adapted from Matthew De Abaitua’s novel The Red Men, set against a pervasive and Orwellian vision of contemporary society: surveillance, automation, biotechnology, and their implications for our humanity. Michael (Tom Hollander) is a broken man with a gun, surrounded by armed police. A robot with a medical degree is dispatched – but can it save him?”
The short film Dr Easy is written and directed by Jason Groves, Chris Harding and Richard Kenworthy (Shynola). It’s actually a prologue for a planned feature adaptation of ‘The Red Men’.
Project Kronos is an awesome science-fiction short film written and directed by Hasraf Dulull, a visual effects supervisor. It’s a fake documentary about mankind’s first travel to the stars. It’s definitely worth watching:
Plot: “Project Kronos is a documentary film set in the not too distant future, following a mission to achieve interstellar space travel. As the mission unfolds with extraordinary results, the scientists find themselves dealing with a much bigger agenda.”
It’s a bit creepy to have one’s brain extracted and inserted in that electronic device… Would you sign with NASA for the first interstellar trip if they were to use this kind of technology?
Let’s watch “Silicon;Bootdrive”, an awesome science-fiction short film from Japanese Filmmaker A.T.:
Plot: “It’s the year 2015. A meteor collided with the Earth and changed human race. How were we created? Why do we live? And where are we headed? I wanted to know. And that’s why I’m here. -David Craws-”
Do you think there’s an alien race or some other godly power guiding evolution? LoL!
Anyway, Silicon Bootdrive is definitely awesome, let’s hope they will develop feature film! Continue Reading »
