Writing Wasted Youth

Today is a special day. I've been working on a movie script for 8 years and today I finally finished a rough first draft of it. The script is called Wasted Youth.

 It is an independent movie about four friends on a night of adventure in Miami. It's a millennial epic of minute proportions and a version of it is actually done. It's way too long. So now the hard work comes editing and making it good. Their is one song that encapsulates the movie for me, that will probably be the biggest hurdle in getting this movie completed. That song is by one of my favorite artists Meatloaf. So if anyone knows Meatloaf I got a script for him to read.

Stay tuned for more Wasted Youth updates

Filmmaker Fandom Friday: Dinner For Five S02E12 - Judd Apataow, Peter Berg, Famke Janessen, Paul Rudd

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Official Teaser and Vundablog Analysis

It has arrived, and it does not disappoint. It is dripping in style and cool. I love everything about this trailer. The way the music plays, the shots chosen, and the voice over. So far JJ has me at hello.  Let me take you through what were the major highlights for me. 

I love the cuteness and uniqueness of this droid. Ihope he plays a big part. It might be a weird dynamic to add a third droid to a perfect two man team, but if anyone can pull it off it's JJ. Do you think this droid is all practical, all cgi, or a mix of both?

The vehicle design is magnificent. Things look real and like a natural progression from the original trilogy. I love this massive speeder bike thing that looks like a popsicle and have no doubt there will be like twelve toys of it.

No list of this trailer's awesome would be complete with out mentioning the cross guard light saber. It looks menacing and unique and just all kinds of badass. The look of the bleak snow covered wood, by a cloaked figure is reminiscent of Game of Thrones or the Lord of the Rings in a good way.

Finally the grand daddy, the one the only the Millennium Falcon. How we've missed this ship. Seeing it flying around and fighting tie-fighters on Tatooine is impressive and makes you realize why you've missed this old ship so much.

I'm excited.

Thanks J.J.

Now I can't believe we have to wait a year.

Lego MiniFigure of the Week: Cyclops

This week we have one of my favorite Mini-figures of my collection. Scott Summers aka Cyclops the one true leader of the X-men. Cyclops was right! Love this mini-figure for having yellow trunks on the pants piece. Also enjoy the full hood look. Hope they one day make a 90's era one with a hair piece and sash. Kind of like this.

Me on Jay and Silent Bob Get Old 152

I attended the November 7th show of Jay and Silent Bob Get Old 152 and it was a magical experience. I was chosen to play "Let us Fuck" with Jason Mewes due to some ingenuity on my part and I chatted up our official podcast the Vundacast with my hero Kevin Smith. The next episode of the Vundacast I will talk all about it. For now you can enjoy the excerpt from the podcast I put up on youtube.

Filmmaker Fandom Friday: Dinner For Five S04E09 - Kevin Smith, Jason Lee, Stan Lee, Mark Hamill, and JJ Abrams

Abrams with Hamill before episode 7, possibly his first time meeting Hamill. Also Stan Lee sitting next to Luke Skywalker is a nerdgasm. As always I love Kevin Smith and Jason Lee.

ROSE among thorns: Tarantino Django Unchained

I love the interviews Charlie Rose conducts. Charlie Rose doesn't need a fancy set to ask questions all he needs is an entertaining person to interview and fill the back ground with the deep thoughts most shows don't have time to air. My favorite Charlie Rose show interview subject is Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino is always open and candid with Charlie, and by this point in their careers can talk like old friends. Tarantino espouses some great advice in part 3.
