Movie Night: Wanted (2008)


Grab your popcorn its movie night, tonight its Wanted (2008) , I'll try not to spoil it too much but heres a quick plot summery. A young man named Wesley Gibson works at a dead-end job with an overbearing boss. He takes depressant when he feels stressed out. His live-in girlfriend is sleeping with his best friend. He speaks of how his father left when he was just one week old. He wonders if maybe when he was born his father looked into his eyes and saw a failure.

Elsewhere, a man called "Mr. X" (David O'Hara) meets with a ballistics expert to find out who made a particular bullet for a "competitor". Suddenly, a sniper shoots the ballistics expert in the head from a nearby building. Mr. X leaps through the window and shoots his opponents in mid-flight, killing them. He lands on the building and begins talking to a man on a cell phone, unaware that he is standing on a marked spot. He notices it as the man, named Cross fires a multi-stage bullet from across town, killing Mr. X by going through the back of his head and out through his forehead.

One night at a pharmacy, Gibson meets a mysterious woman who tells him his father was an elite assassin who had been killed the day before. Gibson replies that his father abandoned him a week after his birth. At that moment, Cross appears, gun in hand. The woman opens fire on Cross. Wesley and the woman escape from the resulting shoot-out and have a wild car chase in the streets of Chicago. The woman brings Gibson to the headquarters of The Fraternity, a thousand-year-old secret society of assassins. The group's leader, Sloan (Morgan Freeman), formally introduces Gibson to Fox (Angelina Jolie), the woman from the night before, and invites him to follow in his father's footsteps as an assassin.
All in all its a surprisingly grim and dark work of comic book style action with an almost matrixesque abandon for physics that paints a truly formidable story that leaves you frankly breathless at times and wondering exactly what the hell is going on.

How Too: Build a Lightsaber



*WARNING GEEK FACTOR 10!*

Ok i wont divulge much about the video but i will say it involves no soldering in any way whatsoever...

....*cough* power tools don't count right?

to be honest the creation of the prop is a bit of a pain for those of you out there without access to some basic tools and equipment but don't forget that there are much simpler versions available if you follow the links provided.

Now as for the special effects, even a low end computer can create top looking effects relatively simply. Don't forget though that you don't need a fancy looking prop to make use of the effects package a simple cane or rod with a few licks of paint or wraps of electrical tape can create a worthy weapon for any wannabe Jedi or Sith with only the lightest of after image wizardry.

ok then that's it, enjoy and i hope to see your efforts on youtube in the near future.

Now since Dove is not only a long term reader a fantastically funny person and one of the scant few readers that seems to comment regularly i though i should give this question regarding ''the fuck'' the due respect and research it deserves.
Thank god for web comics eh?

Oh and Dove i truly appreciate the slap to sanity but next time can i at least have the chance to get changed into something leather and spiky?

oh that reminds me tune in later folks for this weeks how too.

na na na na n a na nana na Batman!!

Daily Blogg: Feelin a little crazy



Well since i missed my Monday rant and have nothing else to say im throwing a crazy Batman at you and hopeing for the best...

...well what can i say im not exactly well and this funky green liquid the doctor shaped personage gave me appears to be having a somewhat detrimental effect on my oh so feeble mind. With that said tomorrow will feature a soldering free how too that even in my current state i should be able to demonstrate and then post without removal or cooking of any part of my body.

till then...
