Movie Roundup

Children of Men looks to be an interesting sci-fi drama of sorts. Basically the women of the world have become barren and the lack of hope for mankind leads to an anarchist society. Clive Owen is recruited to transport a woman to a safe zone because, surprise suprise, she is pregnant against all odds. That's as much as I can tell from the trailer but I'm told from good sources that the film is pretty great, so I'd keep it in mind.

Darkon - you know, I've seen this trailer before but never managed to see the entire film. Someone please tell me they've seen it and it is as incredible as I hope it is.

  • Children of Men is amazing. One of my favorite movies this year. Might be tied with the Fountain for the gold.

  • Children of Men. I hope that it's Junior part 2.

    Darkon looks badass, and I hope at some point in the movie someone says "lightning bolt!!!!!"

  • I personally think it is awesome. Then again I'm kind of biased becasue I'm in it. The movie will have it's limited public release in the spring. Currently Andrew Neel (Director)and the rest of SeeThink is still pimping the movie out on the film festival circuit. One of the biggest concerns for Darkon when making the movie was not to be another Trekkies or a mockumentary type movie. Andrew and Luke did and awesome job in working with the club members and made a hell of a film. The battle scenes are worth a movies all by themselves I think. If you are interested in the trailer you will probably like it. There have been a lot of critics who go in with the "whatta bunch of rejects" attitude who have loved the movie as well. All they expected to see were a bunch of geeks casting magic missle and drooling over orc porn but they got to see (yes some geeks) a lot normal folk who use the game as an escape from the everyday stress & bs that can drag you down. To semi- quote from Skip in the movie, it's like playing a sport or gaming or anything that requires you to put on a uniform/costume and step outside your usual boundaries. People use fantasy everyday, whethers it's the dream of being a rockstar, a major league athlete, or just more than what you are now. But I digress as usual.. There is a Darkon myspace site if you want to get updates as well as the the darkonthemovie.com boeards. Hope you get a chance to see it, I might see you there. :)
