What I'm Watching


I've just finished watching 10 of 12 episodes of a fan-made production called 'Star Trek Continues' and it's one of the most thrilling series I've found on the Youtube. Once you watch the first episode you'll be hooked! The characters may look similar or completely different compared to the classic TV show 'Star Trek' but those differences will melt away completely by the time you reach the 3rd or 5th entries mainly do to an incredible level of voice similarities and body language imitating by each of the shows great actors. Check this out and sit through it all if you can or go to my favorite episodes pictured below! 

Like the original series the scripts tackle modern day issues and does them in a gripping, edge of your seat way. 'Lolani' deals with the simultaneous issues of sexism against females and the evils of slavery and 'What Ships Are For' deals with illegal immigration in a way that's highly imaginative!! These two episode nearly made my jaw drop and any aspiring script writer / filmmaker would do himself a DISSERVICE by not watching them!! It all teaches the importance of seeking to master one's CRAFT before seriously considering oneself as being a 'professional'.

I finally got a chance to watch this must celebrated movie by GUILLERMO DEL TORO. It was worth the wait for all of the right and some may say, some of the wrong reasons. You see, I'm a big SALLY HAWKINS fan and she's the star / romantic interest in this movie. Now, I knew that I was going to watch it because GUILLERMO DEL TORO is one of my favorite directors / storytellers and when I heard that SALLY HAWKINS was in the movie it was a double whammy for me. But if someone had told me that she'd be doing nude scenes in this film --! Man, I would've seen it on the first day it was out! Hahaha. Well, everyone has a crush on somebody, right? Anyway, the whole movie, including the nude scenes were all done superbly! I was definitely not disappointed and the wait to watch it was worth it. It had a few storytelling errors in it and maybe I'll discuss that in an upcoming review... but overall, it's a must see film. A modern 'Beauty and the Beast'.

Just watched one of the best mergers of historical facts and dramatization I've ever seen and all for FREE on Youtube! Check out this top-notch production on the origins of the myth / legend of Atlantis!!!! I'm telling you if you sit through the entire thing you're gonna be impressed by the wise efforts the producers / directors put into choosing the right cast and directors!!

Well acted and with incredible special effects that sometimes -ONLY SOMETIMES -reveal the tight budget they may have been working with (it's produced by the BBC so I'm thinking it's a TV budget...); Check it out and kick back and feel the terror that must've been within the hearts and minds of the ancient Minoans of Crete in their last and final days. But all was not in vain for their demise gave birth to one of the greatest legends of all time -Atlantis!
