#255: Two for Hellboy at 4:20

For a little more about Johann Krauss, go here. (The movie version of the character has two S's at the end, for some reason I don't know.)

Anyway, Hellboy 2 was really, really fun!

It's not Pan's Labyrinth or The Devil's Backbone with fight scenes, by any means, but it's very fun. The whole scene with the big plant monster (seen in the trailer) = fantastic. The titular Golden Army = cool as hell. There are several other great bits I'd rather not mention, because you should be surprised by them. It does have a relatively paint-by-numbers plot and a bit too much fantasy "logic," but I still really enjoyed it.

I definitely recommend action movie lovers see it, but don't expect too much more than just some fun action and some really cool creature effects. (By comparison, I thought the first one was just okay.)

There will be two more strips this week — one on Wednesday and another on Friday.

“Steeping” by Gordon McAlpin

Saturday, November 22, 2014

A short experimental film I made for schoolz. (Mostly) shot in 240 fps slow motion on an iPhone 6. Edited with Final Cut Pro. There are a few shots I’d have liked to redo if I wasn’t under the gun for a deadline (and hadn’t run out of tea), but… oh well.
