Batman Fan Film

So I’ve been seeing more and more of these fan films pop up and I honestly think it’s a good thing. These film makers have some great and innovative ideas and all it can do is make Hollywood try harder on their films…at least that’s my hope. Anyways here’s another Batman fan film that I came across. I will keep my opinions to myself but feel free to let us know what “You” think.

Where did they do good and where could they use work?

ZombieLand TV Show???

I don’t know about you but ZombieLand is one of my favorite zombie movies of all time. Since 2011 there has been speculation on a possible TV series based on the hit movie. According to i09 casting calls went out for the main characters on Tuesday January 15. Apparently they were able to get a hold of some of the script and have some details about how the main characters are going to be played.

(Via i09)
Tallahassee is still kind of a snarky weirdo, but he seems to have a much less spiky relationship with Columbus. He and Columbus have a pretty amusing thing where they riff on the fact that Steven Seagal movies always have three-word titles like “Marked for Justice” or “May Cause Diarrhea.” But Tallahassee also dispenses homespun wisdom about how to feel happy with your life. He also tells a weird story about being in a trailer park with a perpetually nude Matthew McConaughey. He also has a somewhat heartwarming scene where he tells Columbus that he’s been wandering aimlessly for a long time, but maybe he’s been put here for a reason — to help Columbus and the others. 

Columbus is much the same, except that he tracks down his grandma and grandpa (Bubbie and Peepaw) only to find them recently zombiefied. Also, Columbus is trying to deal with his newfound relationship with Wichita, after their first kiss. He has started calling her “Krista,” her real name — but there are some problems, especially after she finds him reading a book about fatherhood. He tries to organize a romantic scavenger hunt for her in the IKEA they’re camping out in, but it goes kind of horribly.

Wichita is still trying to look after Little Rock, trying to teach her math with problems about someone stealing from a liquor store and jumping on a train going 42 miles per hour, with a cop chasing in a car going 88 miles per hour. We also learn a lot more about Wichita’s backstory, including how she ran away from her father after he had her stealing people’s Christmas presents — and later, she found out she had a sister who was also being a grifter with her dad.

Little Rock seems actually kind of excited about meeting Columbus’ grandparents, before they turn out to be zombies. And she shares some of her own backstory, about how her dad parked her at a school while he went off grifting on his own — and then yanked her out of school right before a dance that she was looking forward to.

So as you can see the characters have changed a bit from the original big screen film but I am still excited about seeing ZombieLand become a weekly TV series. What about you Nerd Nation? is this something you think will do good or do you think the producers should have just stuck with a sequal to the movie?

The Elder Scrolls Online Trailer

Not only is the Elder Scrolls series one of the best in video games today, this cinematic trailer has to be one of the best I’ve seen in a while. I am definitely looking forward to this game since I loved (I think we all did) Skyrim so much. My only questions is…Why isn’t Hollywood making movies as epic as this 6 minute trailer? Anyways, enjoy this awesome and exciting look at The Elder Scrolls Online!

Also I should point out that the application for beta testers is up so you can go apply by going to This Link
