This is a trailer for a BBC series called "Human Planet" which is sort of a nature series looking at the human animal.
Or is it an anthropological series shot like a mature documentary?
I don't know, but it sure is beautiful and breathtaking.
That's not bad. Not bad at all.
Here's an excerpt from the movie itself:
I dunno... It's fulfilling my expectations, but... I can't put my finger on it, but somehow, seeing this has made me less excited about seeing the movie.
I have zero hope that Sucker Punch will be a good story. However, I am prepared to sit back, leave my disbelief at the door to the theater, and drink in the crazy quilt of visuals.
What's not to like? Pretty girls, automatic weapons, wire-fu, mecha, giant samurai, ork stormtroopers, helicopters, dragons... I'm sure I'll be happy so long as the explosions keep coming.
Film is a visual medium, and while I appreciate a great story with all the Aristotelean unities, sometimes a shattering dream- or nightmare-scape can fill the bill just as well.
Here is an animation "inspired" by the steampunk, nightmare version of World War I trench warfare in which dead soldiers are turned into Industrial Age techno-zombies.
You know... those guys have more than a passing resemblence to WH40K Death Korps of Krieg... Where's my epic WH40K live-action movie???
I'm not, generally speaking, a fan of Fan-Made Films. But I stumbled into this one and thought it was actually very good.
