It appears the Batman fairy came in the night, sprinkling magic Batman dust all over the floor of my home. Pretty images of Gotham cityscapes. A transcript of a Q&A. Lots of stuff to mull over. And since a few of you around here seem to be all about the bat...I thought I might share what this magical pixie has brought. So...you know...enjoy.…
Chase asks:Hey Carlyle whats up? I don't know if it is true but when I walked out of the new Indiana Jones flick I overheard someone saying there is already a 5th one in the works is this true??
Undetermined. For now I'm going to say no, because there is nothing official. What happened was this: during an interview at Cannes, George Lucas responded to a question with this carefully planned… Continue
We've all seen your rant on the concept of turning video games into movies. However, with the news that Gore Verbinski will be helming the upcoming adaptation of Bioshock, do you think it has a chance of actually being a decent film, despite it suffering from the classic isolationist syndrome a lot of video games have (ie. only have one character for most of the game).
Well, for those of you unacquainted with my video game rant, I've dug it out… Continue
5) Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Kids love the Harry Potter series. And as those kids are rapidly growing into adulthood not only is the pick up line You wanna stroke my wand and summon the Beastus Majorum becoming effective, but we’re seeing the Star Wars of next generation. Within 10 to 15 years, Potterisms will have found their way so entrenched in the mainstream that it will… Continue
Long Hollywood’s redheaded stepchild, until recently Fantasy rarely received the support it deserved – leaving the field strewn with few great films. But, whether by the effort of a visionary director or that of a producer hell-bent on getting it right, a few wonderful, perfect fantasy films made it through the cracks. And here are my pick of the 10 best.
What is this Mabinogi thing I'm addicted to. Well, since they've got a contest that could win me some ingame cash (woohoo, go me go) I decided to play along and show you guys this cool trailer. The game is free to play with all sorts of buy-in toys and programs to make money off of you.
Until the last 1/3rd of that trailer, all that is in game play. I don't know how they orchistrated that musical event, but that's pretty awesome. I'm not into the musical… Continue
With the release of Prince Caspian this week, it has set my mind towards kicking back and watching other great fantasy films. Unfortunately for us, until recently, Hollywood hasn't taken fantasy all that seriously. So we all kind of fall back on watching the same films over and over again. But there are a few oddball gems out there - a few overlooked masterpieces that I know many of you haven't… Continue
Hey guys, sorry I haven't been around much. Plumbing problems and move in woes O' plenty have plagued the house of Carlyle. BUT, there is something exciting happening tonight. Last night was the Austin premiere of a little indie film I appear in, titled WHEN IS TOMORROW.
It's a cool little film shot in Austin and starring director Kevin Ford, Eddie "Crabman" Steeples (My Name is Earl) and Angela "May" Bettis (May, Girl Interrupted). I'm in it for about a… Continue
