Cool Minimalist Posters – Thor, Hulk, Captain America and more

Posted by LiveFor on April 21, 2010

Check out the excellent work of Rogan Josh. He’s really done excellent jobs in the minimalist style. Hell, he’s even included a reference to Frog Thor. Lots more to check out on his Etsy site and you can buy them for $18.00 a pop.

I think the Doctor Strange one is my favourite.

Serenity – Wash gets his own back in funny Web Comic

Posted by LiveFor on April 20, 2010

I love it. Sorry for any potential spoilers you may infer from this cool web comic, but I had to share it. Cartoonist Mike Russell, writer Mark Bourne and inker/colorist Bill Mudron are responsible for this take on Joss Whedon’s Firefly feature film Serenity.

I still really miss Firefly. Still mad that Zac Efron played a young Simon Tam in the series (check out the video below).

Star Wars – Samurai style in Samurai Wars

Posted by LiveFor on April 16, 2010


Check out the cool Samurai style action figures by an artist called Sillof. Lucas based the original Star Wars on Akira Kurosawa’s classic The Hidden Fortress hence the reason for these figures and they look mighty cool.

Samurai Wars is a line of custom figures that imagines what a Star Wars movie directed by Akira Kurosawa would look like. George Lucas has said publically what a fan he is a Kurosawas and also the influence that Kurosawa’s “The Hidden Fortress” had on Star Wars. At the bottom of the page is a fake write up that I did for a convention that claims this is a real movie.

Last year you may recall reading or hearing about a discovery that shook the cinematic world to its foundations. The famed Ekafama Auction House in Yokahama announced its astonishing discovery, pictures. However, these were no ordinary pictures, they were in fact stills from a movie a half a century old that was not supposed to exist.

The film was a movie that even the most wishful cinephile thought was an urban legend. The movie was Mononofu Woza: Ryu-Mikomi by acclaimed Japanese director Akira Kurosawa. Very little has been written about the film over the years as very little was known. The facts are hard to come by as the story and legends surrounding it grew substantially over the years until the entire project entered an ethereal state.

The facts that can be confirmed by the limited studio records that survive are few. It was to be something of mega project unheard of in its day. The film was budgeted to be the most expensive film in Japanese history and boasted a veritable who’s who of Japanese cinema and Kurosawa regulars (see inset table below). It began filming in 1955 and would have been released the following year in 1956. Most of the principal photography had wrapped when tragedy struck. A fire broke out in the offices at the famed Toho Studios. The arson investigation ruled newly installed faulty wiring as the cause of the blaze. The studio decided the project could not be restarted due to the numerous commitments of its many stars to other films, many of which Toho studios was also overseeing.

I love it when they come up with excellent back stories to go with the art. What do you think of the figures?
