How amazing is the artwork on this Swamp Thing Comic? The artist obviously really like the works of Alphonse Mucha.  Makes me want the comic and I have never been interested in Swamp Thing.

Follow the link below to check out these crazy Japanese watches.  Their speciality is making serious good looking watches that are more than a little tricky to actually tell the time on.  I know it sounds odd to own a watch that may take you a minute or so to work out what the time is but they are great conversation pieces and you can always check the time on your phone!

‘Against the Grain’ Pt 2 – Solaris (2002)

The second in a series of reviews highlighting movies that have been unfairly panned and worth re-visiting for any semblance of merit:

I love Steven Soderbergh’s Solaris (2002). I love it more than Tarkovsky’s original (1972). Simple as that.

The mean, moody opening is magnificent and rain-soaked. Clooney is as far from the bad memories of Batman and Robin as he could possibly be and clearly wanted to make a statement to Hollywood that he didn’t always want to play. A bold step.

And this is where Solaris failed. People wanted a blaster wielding ‘Clooney in Space’ saga. This film wasn’t it. A thinking-person’s sci-fi, with one of my favourite soundtracks, this is puzzling, challenging, sad and tender.

Clooney is brilliant and the staging onboard the ship is beautifully designed and realised. The cinematography throughout is a dream.

For this film to get a paltry 6.2 on imdb is a mark of how underrated it is. If Hollywood only backed more of this stuff, the average cinema-goer’s value system would be overhauled we would all to want to engage with something more meaningful.

An elusive, beguiling and woefully undervalued flick. See it.

Think computer games aren’t relevant to real life?… Well… You’re right, but check this comic out anyway, and even if you’re not into computer games, I defy you not to feel a little bit sad by the end (even if Farmville is super lame):

It is 3 o’clock in the afternoon and Mass Effect 3 has been sat in my bag since 8 O’clock this morning, it is killing me.  Actually the timing of the launch is not great for me, it is the final day of a large project at work today, my Aunt and Uncle have just got back from the states expecting to see me and I will have to wait until he kids are asleep.  EA could have consulted me before picking today for the launch but once again I must have been overlooked.  I’m looking forward to putting some serious time into finishing this epic story and seeing how the decisions I made in the first two games effect the final chapter in the trilogy.  If I get time I will post up a little review as I play through the game.
