      Uncle acid and the deadbeats is a classic metal band? Is your name based on it?

      In case you didn't see my question, what did you think of Didi Hamann when he was at Newcastle?

      Really? If anything, I think the visuals look fantastic. Looks unlike anything else coming out this summer--and I mean that in the best way possible.

      As for DT, now that I think about it, I do recall you saying before that you're not a fan of prog metal. I'm not into prog metal much either, but the bands that I do like from the genre, I like them very much; DT being one of them.

      Here's the trailer for 'Elysium': PcXOnoSN0RE

      The visual design of everything looks nothing short of stellar. Two of my favorite current conceptual artists (Christian Pearce and Aaron Beck) contributed significantly to the film. The thing I love about both of their artworks is that they specialize in the whole 'operator' aesthetic--with the latter basically being the pioneer in that style. It takes all of those super fantastical sci-fi elements and illustrates them in very realistic and plausible renditions. That's my favorite type of sci-fi for sure.

      Anyway, 2013 appears to be a very promising year for film overall. 'Elysium' obviously tops my list, but there's also 'Pacific Rim', 'Only God Forgives', 'You're Next', 'V/H/S/2', 'Europa Report' and many, many other films to look forward to.

      Also, I've been meaning to ask, did you see 'Evil Dead'? I fucking loved it.

      Oh, and what are your thoughts on Dream Theater? They just announced they will be releasing a new album this fall. It sounds promising: Xc_1fwJmBk8

      I will guarantee you right now that the first trailer for 'Elysium' isn't the best that film has to offer. Blomkamp likes to keep everything scaled back in trailers so viewers are surprised and blown away by all of the 'money shots' in the film itself. But with that being said, I still enjoyed the trailer immensely. Even with the simple set-up, Blomkamp already establishes a very unique and beautiful visual style that makes his aesthetic stand out from all other blockbuster directors that are out there right now. Plus, that shot of the exploding droid has to be one of the coolest action shots I've seen in any trailer this year.

      I've yet to see 'Stoker', but only because we didn't get it in theatres here for some weird reason.

      I gotta be honest with you, though, 'Machete Kills' looks fucking atrocious to me. I didn't even care for the first one.

      I'm also interested in seeing the sequel to 'The Hobbit.' I love Peter Jackson. And pretty much anything WETA is involved in guarantees I watch it.

      Anyway, here's the first piece of artwork for 'V/H/S/2': http://25.media.tumblr.com/b3c23b357c07f2cf8e97893d5697d10e/tumblr_mnzfrzgvp81sszwz5o1_1280.jpg

      Thanks, man. :brofist

      Yeah, see, I take recommendations from people very seriously. And it's not that I intend to put them on the backburner or anything, but I still need to see so many films from this year that I haven't been able to see over the last couple of months due to how incredibly busy I've been. That, and it's hard for me to focus my attention on other films with 'Elysium' getting closer and closer. There's not a single other film coming out this year that has my attention like that one does.

      You're talking about 'Time Crimes', right? I haven't seen it, but I do know it's available on Netflix instastream. I might give that a shot some time this weekend if I can find the time, actually.

      Also, there's some more cool pieces of artwork coming out for 'V/H/S/2' similar to what they did for the first film.

      You're like one of two people on here whose opinions on film I value, so I will definitely give that movie a shot some time down the road. I can't make any promises that it will be any time soon, but that's mainly because I have so many films lined up to watch over the next couple of months.
    10. TetraVaal

      'The ABCs of Death' is very hit or miss, but I will say that the ones that are hits are very enjoyable. Unfortunately, Ti West has the most pointless--and shortest--segment of the bunch.

      Wingard only directed the wraparound portions of 'V/H/S', and to be honest, that's the weakest part of the film. That's why I consider Wingard a director with more raw talent rather than a polished filmmaker. He shows potential in almost all of his films--with certain portions even demonstrating sheer brilliance--but it's consistency that he's lacked up to this point. But yeah, 'You're Next' definitely looks like he will finally knock it out of the park.

      I haven't seen 'Chillerma.' I'll give it a shot some time down the road, but I've never been a big fan of combining horror and comedy. There's only been a couple of instances where I've found that combination to work in a sort of tongue-in-cheek kind of way. Both 'Return of the Living Dead' and 'Friday the 13th part VI: Jason Lives' immediately come to mind. Those films some how seemed to do it very well.

      I don't know what's going on with 'Bedbugs' at the moment--but I do know that 'The Sacrament' has been in post for quite some time now.

      'The House of the Devil' and 'The Innkeepers' both kick an immense amount of ass. He's definitely one of my favorite modern American horror filmmakers.

      Adam Wingard has tons of potential, too. I liked 'A Horrible Way to Die' more than most--but 'You're Next' looks like it has a realistic possibility of being the best American horror film of the year.
    12. TetraVaal
      TetraVaal
      Man, I can always count on you to like good movies.

      I loved 'The Innkeepers.' I can't wait for Ti West's next film, 'The Sacrament.' It's going to be a found footage horror movies that focuses on a couple of people trying to escape a Jonestown type cult.

      Did you like 'District 9'?
    14. TetraVaal
      TetraVaal
      It's all good, man. I'm an absolute nut when it comes to art direction and effects for films, series and games, so I keep up to date on all the FX houses.

      Anyway, I haven't checked out the Hannibal series nor 'Bates Motel.' While I love TV for stuff like 'Breaking Bad', 'Adventure Time', 'Louie' and others--I just wasn't blown any by the previews I saw for 'Hannibal' and 'Bates Motel.' I might give them both a shot some time down the road, but for the time being I just don't have any interests in them.

      One show that I'm really excited for is 'Ballistic City.' I really hope that ends up getting made.

      Did you watch that red band trailer for 'Kiss of the Damned'? I'm really diggin' the giallo influence. I hope that movie turns out to be a pleasant surprise.

      I strongly prefer Carpenter's 'The Thing' and Cronenberg's 'The Fly' over the originals, that I really can't get into those films.

      I do like 'Them!', though. Just not enough to put it on any 'top' lists.

      Speaking of movie posters, I was having a similar discussion with a friend at work the other day. We were talking about the VHS art for 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre', and how you can't even buy a decent Blu-Ray cover these days. It's sad. I hate how movie studios try to cut corners and half-ass their home releases. It's ridiculous.

      That's cool, though. I'm just big into sci-fi and action and imagery--so that's what draws me to those particular games.

      You listen to this yet? http://www.metalsucks.net/2013/02/11/exclusive-track-debut-shai-huluds-monumental-graves/

      Just like with films and artwork--when it comes to gaming--it's all about the visuals. I love the first 'Crysis' game (even enjoyed the second much more than others)--I just love how immersive the environment is. I also love 'Halo', 'Half-Life', the 'Mass Effect' series, the 'Metal Gear' series, 'Zone of the Enders', 'Prey' etc, etc. I haven't really gotten into any 'hardcore' discussions about it on here, but I am an avid fan of those games... especially 'Halo' and 'Crysis.' Oh, and I also love the NHL games.

      Any specific games that you're massively into?

      Speaking of 'The Crow', they have the hardcover graphic novel at Barnes & Noble right now. It's pretty cool.

      But yeah, I would've loved to have gotten a sequel to 'Dredd.' I figured it would've been a sleeper hit--but the marketing--along with the apparent production issues--might've played a role in the film underperforming so badly. Regardless, it's still a really cool flick no matter what.

      'The Raid' is a lot of fun. There's some really extraordinarily choreographed action sequences, but that's all it has going for it. I don't think that's a slight against the film at all... but I'd only recommend it if you want a pure action film that is more of a showcase in technical skill than a narrative one.

      By the way if you get the chance go here: http://www.narutoforums.com/showthread.php?t=892634&page=7 and check out the clip I posted for 'Kiss of the Damned.' I think it looks promising, but I don't know enough about it to fully declare that it will be a great movie or anything.

      I'm not a big Alex Proyas fan. But yeah, I actually admire 'Dark City' quite a lot. If not for the visuals alone. But one of the reasons I have an appreciation for it is because of how hard the director fought to keep everything that he wanted in the film. It's one of the reasons he really hates Fox, lol.

      I loved 'Dredd.' I loved it a lot. Easily my favorite comic book adaption from all of last year (and I actually enjoyed the 'Avengers' quite a lot)--so I think that says something. To me, it is one of the coolest sci-fi action films I've watched since 'District 9.' I just love that type of sci-fi, man. It's so hard-edge, rugged and primal--yet still very futuristic and flashy. I love movies like that, 'RoboCop', 'Total Recall', 'Aliens', 'Starship Troopers', the first two 'Terminator' films, etc, etc.

      You and I share the exact same mindset, man. I swear. The reasons you cited are exactly why I don't bother with that thread anymore.

      As for 'film' and 'neo-noir'--in regard to the former... I think film is great for the people who love film. I, myself, am a big advocate for digital, though. I'm currently infatuated with the products that RED put out (especially the RED Epic camera)--but I know there are advocates for the Arri Alexa--mainly Roger Deakins--but the Epic shoots at a higher resolution; higher framerates; it's a smaller camera; it can shoot at 5k @ 120fps; the EPIC has 3 stops more DR than Alexa using HDRx; EPIC has six times the resolution of Alexa (as normally shot); EPIC has 5 times more measured resolution comparing best case for each camera.

      And with neo-noir... I'm a fan. I mean, first and foremost I am a science fiction maniac. Like I'm an absolute nut when it comes to that genre. I also love horror as you know, but sci-fi is my main thing. I often tell people that I'm a 'visual' person first--so with sci-fi--and to an extent with neo-noir--I guess that sort of fits my general philosophy.
    25. TetraVaal

      Tell me about it. I don't even waste my time looking in the 'Rate the Last Movie You Saw' thread. It's just not interesting anymore.

      If it weren't for the threads I've created in there--as well as that one 'horror film' thread--I just wouldn't have much interest in posting there.
