Video: Uncanny Valley

The description: In the slums of the future, virtual reality junkies satisfy their violent impulses in online entertainment. An expert player discovers that the line between games and reality is starting to fade away. 3DAR’s latest short film explores the frightening potential of our next technological revolution.

My take: This short film is one of those things that looks good with a story that may draw you in. However, when you think about the kinds of things they are exploring in the seven or so minutes they take, the whole experience will haunt you. The writer/director Federico Heller is someone to keep an eye on. I highly recommend watching this video and thinking about what you saw, instead of merely consuming and moving on to the next thing.

I think everyone knows by now how I feel about time travel stories. I’m not really a fan. That said, this is pretty entertaining. And it stars Erinn Hayes, one of those actresses who I recognize each time I see her but can never remember her name until the credits. This is definitely worth the five minutes it takes to watch.

This is a pretty cool short film about a mercenary who goes into a battle zone.

Invasion Watching

deadbeat

I’m watching Invasion (the ABC show from 2005). I like it and think it should have gotten a better break from the viewing public, but I was one of those people who stopped watching after a few episodes so I guess I shoulder some of the blame for its cancellation. I also think Tyler Labine was very underused on the show. I get that he was supposed to only be comic relief but every time it looked like they were going to give his character some depth, he disappeared for long stretches of time.

On a semi-related note, check out Deadbeat on Hulu.com, It’s pretty good.

This thing isn’t a trailer as much as a teaser, but it gets its point across.

I’m not going to spoil anything, but it’s a Doctor Who film called “Stone” so I’m pretty sure you can figure out who the protagonists in this are going to be.

This is a test

This is a test, but unlike a lot of other websites, I try to put a little bit of content to my test posts.

In this case, here is a clip from one of my favorite scifi films ever:

Johnny Sokko – Dracolon The Sea Monster

I just discovered that YouTube has a lot of full episodes of Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot, including the first one.

See how my appreciation for the show began:
