Who Watches the Watchmen?

Watchmen, based on the most critically acclaimed Graphic Novels of all time thunders its way into theaters this coming march. The year is 1985 and because of the Controversial Keene Act it is now a federal offense to be a masked Hero. Watchmen dives deep beneath the normally shallow colorful world usually portrayed in comic books to a darker more violent and fearful world of 1985 Manhattan.

And you thought making a paper hat was hard

Peter Callesen has brought Origami into a whole new dimension
looking at some of the incredibly intricate sculptures that he creates
out of 8.5/11 plain paper the sheer complexity of these pieces are
stunning but their elegance and sometimes very profound imagery is 
just as stingingly impressive.

Trailer review-12

12 is director Nikita mikhalkov's retelling of the classic stage-play 12 Angry men i had the pleasure of seeing 12 angry men live on stage a few years ago and i have never felt that much power emanating from a play. the story encapsulates Human nature at its most primal form and perfectly displays doubt,trust,hate,and mercy from 12 very angry men. the movie is a retelling of this classic story and promises to be a thrilling tale.

Episode VII attack of the cubes

CubeeCraft strikes again!
about two months ago i came across a post on BoingBoing about a small paper sculpture created as a companion for Cory Doctorow's Novel Little Brother. and after perusing the site i was intrigued by the intricate little pieces of sortagami that were printable from the site.
CubeeCraft has a ton of these sweet little sculptures of all of your favorite characters, from  Rorschach to kirby, or Marcus Fenix to Dwight Schrute they have everyone.

Mushrooms galore... Not really.

Hey, this is Systemphreek,

And I'm here to bring you a band that you metal-heads will like, almost guaranteed. This band is not really up-and-coming, but I just found them and they're much better than some other crap that's big right now. This band is titled Mushroomhead, and although that brings a picture of a guy wearing a Mike Myers mask with a KFC bucket on his head to mind, Mushroomhead is a Slipknot-esque alternative metal band. If you want KoRn lyrics put to a sensible beat (don't get me wrong, I love KoRn, but...) and a low growl for the ages, listen to them. Amazing, makeup wearing freaks is what they are, but freaks with good music!

 Check them out here. So go, listen, and be happy.

Trailer review- REPO!- the genetic opera

The year 2056 organ failure has reached epidemic proportions but GeneCo has a solution! for a price of course, but if you fail to pay your dues you'll soon get a visit from a Repo man  and you'll pay for that surgery with your pound of flesh.

This trailer sparked interest with me, because I am not a fan of horror movies as a genre i find they sacrifice quality for sheer Gore, but i think REPO! might be the exception i've been looking for. this musical bloodbath comes out this friday and judging from the numerous clips,featurette's and trailers on the site, looks like it'll be worth checking out
