    A neutron walks into a bar.

    “Can I get you a drink?” asks the bartender.

    “Sure,” says the neutron. “How much will it cost me?”

    The bartender replies, “No charge.”

  • I find it interesting that no-one has yet mentioned “Plan 9 from Outer Space” (although Lowweek did mention Ed Wood). However, I’m afraid that in my experience, nothing has matched the pure horror of viewing “Manos: The Hands of Fate.” Like Zirk, I watched the Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode of it, but the commentary barely alleviated the…[Read more]

    There actually are black people in Middle Earth in the Tolkien books. Unfortunately, they’re on the wrong side, along with most of the other non-white humans. The black people are those from Far Harad, in the south. The people from Near Harad are perhaps Arab, and the Easterlings depicted in the Tolkien…[Read more]

  • I’m not sure if I’ll go trick-or-treating this year, or if I’ll have time. I haven’t thought of a costume yet either. Last year I was a giant squid, and the year before that a filing cabinet with opening drawer.

  • Another minor note: In the Directory, Joel Batterman is listed as the director of “Salt Lake Spaceport.” It was actually Kelly Jeffery who directed this film.

    Heh, good book, that.

  • Additional fairly minor note: I noticed that for many films in the directory, especially older ones, the “date added” reads January 1st, 2001, when I know this is not the case (I had not even begun to make my film Xarkun 8 then…or discovered Brickfilms.com, for that matter).

  • I think I’ll highlight some earlier films (some already named…oh well):
    “Twelve Bucks” by Rob Weychert (Bredstik Studios)
    “All of the Dead” and “ONE: A Space Odyssey” by Spite Your Face (Tim Drage and Tony Mines)
    The “Jake” series, “Thus Thwacked Zarathrustra” and “The Big Match” by Thomas Foote (not sure if these available right now)

  • Site looks great! A minor note: I believe that the screenshot provided for the film “Der Reiche Kornbauer” is in fact a shot from Jason’s “The Fencers.”

  • Incidentally, it’s “medieval; there are several spellings, I believe,but “medevil” isn’t one of them.
    Set looks fairly nice. I assume it’s some sort of arena? Where did you get the grey lion head, or is it customized?

  • Great film! Most “newbie” films have at least some areas that need considerable improvement, but this one was good all around. The “story-establishing” scene at the beginning added a lot to what could have been just a straightforward battle. The voices were quite good, and amusing at times — I couldn’t detect much of an accent at all. Animation…[Read more]

  • Still a month and a half left here.
    Over the summer, I hope to complete my Roman-era film, 18th Column, which I have not been able to work on much in the past eight months. I have over six minutes filmed, I think, (maybe seven?) with two more to go, plus sound, credits, editing, etc. There is some slightly outdated info on my website; link…[Read more]

  • Regarding the debate over the appropriateness of this film, I think RevMen already said most of what I wanted to say. Yolegoman, I can’t quite understand how you find this film “disturbing.” This is political satire—-dissent. I see no reason why it should be fine to make fun of Clinton, but “disturbing” to parody Bush. The viewer chooses to…[Read more]

  • Another feature very characteristic of airport entrances is a large, sweeping awning-type-thing over the sidewalk or road. Also, many signs; although these might take a bit of time to make, they can look very good when done well–Rob Weychert’s films (Twelve Bucks, Heat Part II, Siege on the Corporate Identity Plant) have good examples of sign/…[Read more]
