Looper Goes 8bit

I must say 2012 has been (and continues to be) quite a year for movie fans and after the massive summer blitz…the fall isn’t looking to shabby. First we have the new Dredd (I know, I know) in a week or so then a week later we have this nice…

Mario Comes Alive Via Post-It Notes

This never gets old. Post It note art and stop motion animation will always be fun. Of course this has a little extra 8bit lovin’ as the Mario landscape morphs into a short Pac-Man board. All in all it’s a great quick video that lands right in our 8bit wheel…

Real World Mario in SXSW Short Film

This is a pretty great real world version of Super Mario Bros. Created by Joe Nicolosi – this is just one of few shorts he has that will show up at SXSW. It’s a dark retelling (in a funny vein of course) of Mario’s pursuit of that bitch Peach. Enjoy….

Alien vs. Predator: Marine Campaign Trailer

Sega has just released a new trailer for their upcoming Alien vs. Predator game. The trailer focuses on the easy breezy life of a space marine trying to squash a small Xenomorph infestati on. Call me crazy, but I love playing as the marine in these games, but then again…

Castlevania Movie Gets Screwed, I Mean Sawed

Any and all hope I had for Hollywood churning out a solid Castlevania film just blew up in my face like Danny Glover’s torso. James Wan, director of Saw and a movie about killer puppets has been tapped to direct Castlevania. Wan had my respect with Saw, and while it…
