Boyhood – International Trailer
Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD — a fictional drama made with the same group of actors over a 12-year period from 2002-2013 — takes a one-of-a-kind trip, at once epic and intimate, through the exhilaration of childhood, the seismic shifts of a modern family and the very passage of time.
Can You Make a Movie So Bad It’s Good On Purpose?
It’s easy to make a bad movie. Budget, talent, time, know-how… there are so many factors that can potentially sink a film. But every once in a while, a movie is so terrible, such an utter failure, that it earns the designation “SO BAD IT’S GOOD”. These bizarre entities touch upon our schadenfreude, and allow us to share and celebrate these monstrosities of filmmaking. Troll 2, The Room, and Plan 9 From Outerspace are both horrific and weirdly enjoyable, even becoming cults classics. But can these So-Bad-It’s-Good films be created ON PURPOSE? Watch the episode and find out!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles With Pugs
They’re green, not so lean, and on your screen!
An online and print-on-demand fan comic called Mega-City Two: 2135 has just released their third Prog (Issue).
Rebellion and 2000AD, which owns the Judge Dredd property, has endorsed the project. And it is supervised by legendary Judge Dredd artist Carlos Ezquerra.
You can find the online comic here.
Mega City Two 2135 was an idea dreamed up by Dredd Universe way back last year. We decided that it would be great to give the fans a chance to create something for ourselves and expand the universe you all so rightly love. My brother and I dreamt an idea of a comic set in post Judgement Day Mega City Two! A blank canvas where everyone could come along and create their own little part of the city and tell a story. With Doug Marr and Monty Light’s enthusiastic writing skills along with Deidre Rae-Crouch’s fabulous pencils Issue One was born and the story is now being told.
