Star Trek Axanar is a movie that proves quality does not mean you have to spend a whole lot of money . An impressive project that relies on donations to film is done like a historical documentary of the 4 year war with the Klingons. Without any prejudice this happens to be one of the best indi films that I have seen . Especially those of the Star Trek lore. The special effects and CGI's are top rated by far. The story is one of the more captivating I have seen to date and the acting is superb. I can't wait to see the next installment of this. IMO this should be picked up as a series. But for now they are collecting donations which the links to do so are below.

Information from the Youtube page and links to donate if you want to.

Axanar is the independent production that proves a feature-quality Star Trek film can be made on a very modest budget -- approximately $70,000 in the case of what you just watched -- and outside of the studio system. Filmed in Hollywood, this effort, our short proof-of-concept film to show what our professional and highly talented cast and crew can deliver, was made possible by generous donations to our first Kickstarter effort by fans like you. You are fans of Star Trek. We are fans of Star Trek. Together we can make amazing things happen!

This 21-minute short film, Prelude to Axanar, premiered Saturday, July 26th, 2014, at San Diego Comic Con, and features Richard Hatch, Tony Todd, Kate Vernon, JG Hertzler and Gary Graham -- Gary reprises his role of Soval from "Enterprise." The makeup and hair was designed by Academy Award winner Kevin Haney and Star Trek veteran Brad Look of Makeup Effects Lab in Hollywood. Top that off with the amazing visual effects of Tobias Richter of The Light Works, and sound by Academy Award winner Frank Serafine, and the result is Prelude to Axanar: something unlike anything you have ever seen before. We have our loyal donors to thank for this and we couldn't be more grateful!

IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO HELP!

July 24, 2015

In 1982, in the hopes of establishing peaceful communication with extraterrestrial life, NASA launches a time capsule into outer space containing images and footage of Earth life and culture. However, aliens misinterpret enclosed video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, specifically Pac-Man, with the Earth being him, and the aliens being the ghosts. They attack the Earth using the games as models for their various assaults, including Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. President William Cooper (Kevin James) calls upon his best friend since childhood, former 1980s arcader champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), who is now a home theater installer and had a previous relationship with William's wife (Jane Krakowski). After support from Professor Iwatani (Denis Akiyama) to seduce Pac-Man with a pitcher of Kool-Aid turns to him pixelating, Brenner decides to lead a team of retrogamers (Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens with various technology similar to those used in games.

Leonard Nimoy dead at 83

27 Feb 2015

March 26, 1931 - February 27, 2015

One would say the film industry has lost an iconic star today but that would be a dishonor to his name. I think it's more appropriate in saying that the planet lost a true legend in every aspect of the word. Nimoy died at his home in Bel Air rom complications of COPD ( chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) at the age of 83.

UnknownBest know for his role as a half Human half logical Vulcan character Mr Spock that he played in the eternal original Star Trek series. Who for generations inspired us that loved the show to think of the world differently and in many ways forced us to improve on our beliefs and in many ways raise the bar for ourselves in how we lived. Even more people if you include the ones that may of not like the show but related to the ideals that his character represented. He also stared or participated in one way or another in a mega amount of films, television, games, recording, books, wrote poetry and photography. There is probably much much more that I am missing but the what there is that I can find is hugely impressive. (see full list of his career below)

Ironic as this sounds the first time I saw him was not on Star Trek but reruns of the old Mission Impossible tv series which he played Paris (Season 4-5). It was shortly after that I was introduced again in syndication reruns of Star Trek. Shortly after that it was the documentary series that searched for evidence of the paranormal In Search of. It seemed all the shows that I gravitated to had at one point and time Leonard Nimoy. I like to think in looking back that it was his ability as an actor that gave those shows that extra oomph that made so many flock to them.

In closing I will rewrite what a wrote on a couple of post . May he live long and prosper no matter where the universe may take him now. And I will also add this. May his journey to the here after be as fruitful and may he bring the same joy and professionalism that he gave us on this floating blue rock in space we call Earth.

Six of her classmates were especially horrible in their treatment of her, as they were unpopular and Laura was the most popular girl in school. Tonight, those same six classmates have decided to get together to talk with one another via Skype, but are ill-prepared when an uninvited seventh person logs onto Laura's old Skype chat and shows that they know quite a bit about the prior year's events. The unknown person threatens the group and states that if they log out or stop talking, someone will die. As the chat progresses, the truth about who posted the video begins to emerge and other secrets are revealed that test their friendships

Poltergeist Official Trailer #1 (2015)

05 Feb 2015

Poltergeist_2015_poster

Release dates
July 24, 2015

When you hear remake or reboot you think. Christ can you leave well enough alone. Stop sucking the genre dry already. 9 times out of 10 remaking classics is not a good thing. The theaters are littered with the remains of remake movie corpses that killed any chance of rebooting the series as the studios hoped. Then again Godzilla and the first Star Trek movie by JJ Abrams proved me quite wrong in that aspect. Poltergeist from what I have seen from this trailer may just prove me wrong again. 10387557_418489018300778_7731961317628754781_nSome of those scenes are just really that creepy and disturbing. Especially the original all time creep me out from the original which was the clown doll that in this version was reimagined into a more creepier scene if you could believe that. The same holds true with the famous "They're hereeeeeeeeeee !!!!! scene with the little girls hand pressed on a TV with white noise static flickering on it. In the remake  she presses her hands against the TV like in the original but in this instance another hand presses back .  Some really great reworking of the classic iconic scene if you ask me. 1549482_418276878321992_4141746859730901193_n
So what is the plot going to be in this one ? is it the same or do they vary so much that it is a new movie altogether ? Thats a good question. In these post I usually include a plot summary or something from sources that include source material .  So far there is no official page that I can point to to get any more info about plots or what have you and the Wikipedia page that usually post all the press release notes and official synopsis has the bare minimum on this one . However the Facebook page has some interesting photos and back stories that are pretty interesting .

Official brief description of Poltergeist .

Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi and director Gil Kenan reimagine and contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is invaded by angry spirits. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and take the youngest daughter, the family must come together to rescue her.

May 15 2015

From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, comes “Mad Max: Fury Road,” a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.

Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

Tom Hardy (“The Dark Knight Rises”) stars in the title role in “Mad Max: Fury Road”—the fourth in the franchise’s history. Oscar winner Charlize Theron (“Monster,” “Prometheus”) stars as the Imperator, Furiosa. The film also stars Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”) as Nux; Hugh Keays-Byrne (“Mad Max,” “Sleeping Beauty”) as Immortan Joe; Nathan Jones (“Conan the Barbarian”) as Rictus Erectus; Josh Helman (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”) as Slit; collectively known as The Wives, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”) is Splendid, Riley Keough (“Magic Mike”) is Capable, Zoë Kravitz (“Divergent”) plays Toast, Abbey Lee is The Dag, and Courtney Eaton is Fragile. Also featured in the movie are John Howard, Richard Carter, singer/songwriter/performer iOTA, Angus Sampson, Jennifer Hagan, Megan Gale, Melissa Jaffer, Melita Jurisic, Gillian Jones and Joy Smithers.

Oscar-winning filmmaker George Miller (“Happy Feet”) is directing the film from a screenplay he wrote with Brendan McCarthy and Nico Lathouris. Miller is also producing the film, along with longtime producing partner, Oscar nominee Doug Mitchell (“Babe”, “Happy Feet”), and P.J. Voeten. Iain Smith, Graham Burke and Bruce Berman serve as executive producers.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar-winning director of photography John Seale (“The English Patient”), production designer Colin Gibson (“Babe”), editor Margaret Sixel (“Happy Feet”), Oscar-winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (“A Room with a View”), action unit director and stunt coordinator Guy Norris (“Australia”), and makeup designer Lesley Vanderwalt (“Knowing”).

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a Kennedy Miller Mitchell production, a George Miller film, “Mad Max: Fury Road.” The film is scheduled for worldwide release beginning May 15, 2015, and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.
