You’re Doing It Wrong — TRON: Legacy Film Review

Make no bones about it, TRON: Legacy is not a good film. It’s not even that entertaining of a movie. But it’s hard to pinpoint just exactly why there’s such disappointment with this franchise cash-in. There have been worse, less intelligent attempts at nostalgia milking. But what sets TRON: Legacy apart from the rest of...Read...

Sun Wu-Kong Reinvented

This will be showing at Disjecta at 8:00pm on September 3rd. Check out this description: A one-hour multimedia video opera based on the...Read...

Ethereal, Whimsical: Tran Nguyen’s Paintings

I just wanted to take my art posting goofiness down a notch and feature some works by someone who really captures beauty in poetic ways. Tran Nguyen‘s sensitive soul is highlighted with her tender, emotional pieces which utilize subtle hints of patterning to accent plain portraits. Even the titles she names her pieces are fantastic....Read...

Alison Scarpulla‘s Realms Of Wonder.

I get a little bit tird of hipster art photography sometimes (not to say that Miss Scarpulla is necessarily a hipster). You know the type — the type that takes over all Tumblr pages ad nauseum, with bleached out colors of pretty people, set against sunshiny backdrops. Well, they’re pretty photos, but they’re generally pretty...Read...

Jarmo Mäkilä’s Creepers. [NSFW]

Finnish artist Jarmo Mäkilä has some creepy artwork, but in the most subtle of ways. They’re creepy because they often depict human beings tromping around, completely oblivious to all of the animals around them that are lazing around, having sex, and climbing trees. I’m rather unclear as to what Mäkilä’s paintings mean, but I gather...Read...

Bodyguards and Assassins (2009) Film Review

Director: Teddy Chen Hong Kong, 2009 Bodyguards and Assassins is a long film. Too long. It’s about 45 minutes too long. It’s also overwrought. There’s a lot of grown men crying about pride and integrity. Things that matter to a lot of people, but not stuff we as the audience particularly care about. In the...Read...

The Wild Hunt (2009) Film Review

The Wild Hunt Director: Alexandre Franchi Canada, 2009 Geexploitation has been a Hollywood trademark for years. From “Revenge of the Nerds” to “Superbad” to “Fanboys,” even when geeks are the heroes they are still tragi-comic characters with barely a single dimension to their name. Geeks are not real to the Hollywood scriptwriter. Their feelings and...Read...

Simona Cordero Captures Quirky Innocence.

Torino, Italy’s Simona Cordero paints mesmerizing watercolor settings of common childhood stories but manages to see them in a light that is neither exhausted nor exhaustive. Take for instance, Cinderella (below), which is Cinderella when one studies closely, but could simply just be a fanciful everyday situation. Or take the rabbit with hearts checkering its...Read...
