Posted by LiveFor on May 3, 2010

In the latest installment to the adaptions of Terry Pratchett’s award winning Discworld series, Sky One and The Mob return to Ankh-Morpork. Moist von Lipwig, the Big Wahoonie’s newest civil servant, has been granted a stay of execution by Lord Havelock Vetinari. However, running the Ankh-Morpork Post Office is more dangerous than Moist bargained for. Joined by Mr. Pump, Junior Postman Tolliver Groat and his assistant Stanley Howler, Moist sets out to restore the Post Office to its former glory. His way is barred, however, by the infamous Reacher Gilt, chairman of the Grand Trunk Company. Moist also finds love, in the unexpected personification of Adora Belle Dearheart.

UPDATED: Splice – Cool photos of Dren are out

Posted by LiveFor on February 26, 2009

Bloody Disgusting have these photos of Splice. The new film by Vincenzo Natali. I posted other photos a while back.

It stars Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley as scientists who create a new life form called Dren (Delphine Chanéac). Think Dren can feel the love from them above.

UPDATE: Executive produced by Guillermo del Toro, the film tells of Elsa and Clive, two young rebellious scientists who defy legal and ethical boundaries and forge ahead with a dangerous experiment: splicing together human and animal DNA to create a new organism. Named Dren, the creature rapidly develops from a deformed female infant into a beautiful but dangerous winged human-chimera, who forges a bond with both of her creators – only to have that bond turn deadly.
Sounds a bit like Frankenstein with a hint of Species but an awful lot of First Born – that old TV show with Charles Dance who plays a scientist who spliced together human and animal DNA (Gorilla to be precise) to create a new organism. This time the kid was called Gor. You can guess how that turned out.
I still think Dren looks like Herr Starr from the Preacher comics with that weird scar she’s got.
