An idea for the next International Film poster. Still needs a lot of clean up work, but this is the direction I'm thinking, and some color options.

Sunday, June 22, 2008

Yeah I did that

Yeah I put a wolf in the header, what now? and yeah the placement is off, and that makes me mad, but I'm not sure how to fix it. Maybe I put a ridiculous font up there too, so what!

The Verdict

I am going to choose to follow James. I think the new Indy movie is good, and that we should cut an old man a little break, maybe.

Here is what I thought in the shower.

I think this movie is missing 2 things, (besides Gimli) I think the drive to push and strive for greatness is gone from George Lucas' eyes. I mean when Star Wars came out he was pushing everything, and now he is just using the same techniques everyone else is. So the things that made the originals great aren't there. He was working crazy hours when he was making star wars, he really had a yearning to make something great. Where as now it feels like he just threw something together, just to quell his boredom. The "Heart" is missing as well, he is already famous and rich and considered a genius, he has lost the will to go higher, because he is already near the top. It's like if your teacher tells you, "you're the best in the class, hands down." You lose a little of that drive, because you have some what accomplished it, so the work you produce afterwards is missing that extra something.

But I do think it is cool that Joe really tried to like the movie. I want to give you E-Props.

Love it

The Post

I understand that I am not as witty, clever, smart as Joe or James so don't be too critical of this.
Also I like early 90's references.

It's like which dad should I choose, the George Michael artsy type, or the tight laced Jewish accountant?

Maybe I should consult Sam as he sneaks into my bedroom window,

or confront Six. If I am really lucky I'll be able to walk out into my backyard and Mr. Feeny will give my life some real direction.

Is Joe right?


Is James right?


Is Darren being emo and not updating his blog?

I personally liked the new Indiana Jones, I went into the movie thinking that it was going to be an cheesy action movie, like the previous ones. Excluding Temple of Doom, that movie, I don't even know what that movie was, except terrible and a topic of childhood nightmares. Personally I would toss that one out of the trilogy and pop in the new one.

I do want to point out that all of Joe's point are valid, but I'm going to chalk that up to the "burden of knowledge," (thanks Scrubs) One of the reasons not to continue your education is you enjoy movies so much more, I mean you could probably watch all all the movies currently out right now and be completely satisfied. Which leads me to believe that you will never be able to make another "good" Star Wars movie or another good Indiana Jones movie, because the generation that idolized them are all grown up, we know too much. Of course a lot of that was a bit too unbelievable, I agree with James on this too, the atomic bomb, the monkeys, the waterfalls, a bit too much. But I know you didn't watch Star Wars and go "there couldn't have been those explosions in space, there's no oxygen." Or think to yourself "there is no way you could build a space station that big."

Although I think dumbing yourself down to go and see a movie is terrible and you shouldn't ever have to do it. I do think that you should every now and again remember that you are going to see a movie, it's meant to be outlandish and over the top, it if all could really happen it would be boring. I went into the movie knowing that people didn't like it and thought it was too far fetched, so I went in as a clean slate, well as much as I could, not to be tricked into judging the movie before I saw it.

I was smiling for most of the movie, (and laughing, but mostly at the Janitor from Scrubs, WTF mate, you shall remain typecast) I really had a good time, James and I were giggling to each other and making little fanboy comments the entire time. This movie took me back to watching the old movie at my grandparents, and how hot Karen Allen was in raiders, oh yeah!

I liked the nods to Close encounters and American Graffiti, When the movie was all over I seriously just pictured two Titans of film, basically having a tickle fight in their matching Indiana Jones pajamas. The movie felt more like two old guys filming a inside joke. That is another reason I liked the movie, it felt like they were just winking at you the whole time, like "did you see that?," remember when?

I think that Indiana Jones isn't meant to make too much sense, it tries, oh yeah it tries, with all the references and research, it's like an episode of C.S.I where they spew facts at you and you just assume that Catherine Willows is hot and agree.

All in all, I am going to have to say the new Indiana Jones is on my list. It made me feel like a kid again, I was all wide eyed and grinning. So even though the movie had its many flaws, I loved watching it. I do think everyone should see it, if only to form their own opinions about it.

Oh wow

I found this "gem" in my digital illustration folder, this is the second digital painting I ever did. Suuuuuuuuuper good?

and yeah if I could pull off one of those epic wolf shirts, you know the ones, with the lightning in the background, or the native American medicine man, or the silk button up one. I would totally have a collection of them.

Dinking around

Some more from the stuff I do when I am bored series.

Head Drawing

This is my head drawing from this morning, I thought it turned out pretty good. It was from a live model, my first real attempt from a live model, since those ones back in the day with Mike don't really count. We haven't really started working on all the details of the face in class, but for my first attempt, come on!

I think it looks better in person, but meh.
