Assassin's Creed filmmaking competition

US$10,000 up for grabs for making a six-minute film based around the new Assassin's Creed game. Should be a doddle for all you 48 Hour filmmakers. Full details here https://www.withoutabox.com/03film/03t_ ... al_id=7221

Re: AVATAR trailers are out

It does look pretty, especially in 3D, but good looks don't count for anything if there is no depth of character.

Re: october fest 2009 anime all nighter

There is also another film in the line-up that hasn't been confirmed yet as another festival wants it as an exclusive, so I can't even hint at what it is, but it will be a good one. Stay tuned.

Re: Good place to swap and sell DVDs

Unfortunately, that site closed down some time ago, so it looks like ebay and Amazon and Play's markets are the only online options now.

Re: Total Recall movie 'to be remade'

Call me old fashioned but there is a small matter of rights involved with making a film from an existing story.

Re: Batman and Robin (the movie) – not as bad as everyone made o

There is one good thing about this movie - the soundtrack. I bought the CD ages ago, admittedly it was £2 in a sale, but it has some great tunes on it.

Re: Total Recall movie 'to be remade'

What!? Why? It's great the way it is and has one of Arnie's best movie lines, to match "I'll be back", when he shoots Sharon Stone and says "Consider this a divorce".

But is it a remake of the film or a new adaptation of the book? Hopefully the latter.

Re: Drag Me To Hell

If you have a Cineworld near you then it is worth getting one of their passes so you can go as often as you like. Why don't more cinemas offer these to encourage people to go? As we all know, they make most of their money from the overpriced popcorn and dodgy snacks, so getting more people through t...

WALL-E was a bit like that too after its amazing silent opening, but then it was aimed at kids.

Re: Please help me in choosing web hosting

If you are looking for lots of disk space and bandwidth then US companies such as www.bluehost.com are good value for money, even if the exchangge rate isn't what it was. They are a bit slow if you are streaming video but apart from that they are good. If you want something local then www.1and1.co.u...

Re: 5% discount at Play.com

Unfortunately it has expired because, according to Play, it was limited to a number of uses and not to the set time limit.

It actually showed at the Edinburgh Film Festival last year. It's not a bad film and has some interesting ideas, which is what you want from a sci-fi film rather than flashy special effects.

Re: manga wall+prices+Sky crawlers

£30 for the all-nighter still sounds good value to me: at least four movies, great goodie bags stuffed with DVDs etc, Red Bull, ice-cream, and the company of like-minded people that you can't put a price on. And as someone said: much cheaper than a hotel for the night.
