I have been listening and following RedIceCreations for about four years now and thought that I should repost an advert for it, for those who have not heard about or come across it yet. There really is no better online station out there for providing you with alternative radio and I highly recommend that you drop in, find an interview topic that sounds interesting and give it a listen.

TREE follows the story of Neil Crummett, writer/poet, who, in an attempt to solve a personal crisis of purpose, has traveled to the island of Maui to confront everything he has ever believed about himself and the nature of being.  Desperate for redemption from a dissolute past, Neil has chosen to embark upon a perilous 49 day fast to find God, a relationship that has thus far been absent from his life.

Neil is sitting with teachers, priests, sages, shamans, physicians, scientists, seers, and healers from various religious, spiritual, medical, and scientific modalities as they weave a tapestry of concepts to help him on his path.

“Jean Kilbourne’s pioneering work helped develop and popularize the study of gender representation in advertising. Her award-winning Killing us Softly films have influenced millions of college and high school students across two generations and on an international scale. In this important new film, Kilbourne reviews if and how the image of women in advertising has changed over the last 20 years.

With wit and warmth, Kilbourne uses over 160 ads and TV commercials to critique advertising’s image of women. By fostering creative and productive dialogue, she invites viewers to look at familiar images in a new way, that moves and empowers them to take action.”

Have you seen the film ‘Sanctum’?

After James Cameron’s last movie ‘Avatar’, I felt it was interesting to post this trailer for his latest movie…

Premis: An underwater cave diving team experiences a life-threatening crisis during an expedition to the unexplored and least accessible cave system in the world.

A couple undergo a procedure to erase each other from their memories when their relationship turns sour, but it is only through the process of loss that they discover what they had to begin with.

A big thank you to my dear friend Lou for this one!

Have you seen the film ‘Skyline’?

Strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth.

A company representing Spider-man / Evil Dead director Sam Raimi has recently acquired the movie rights to this 1951 post-apocalyptic novel by British science fiction author John Wyndham.

In the book the Earth is overrun by a breed of human-flesh eating plants known as “triffids” after a meteor shower has left most of humanity permanently blind. A handful of survivors however manage to elude the creatures and survive in the process.

(In his book about the history of sci-fi, Billion Year Spree, writer Brian Aldiss supplies Day of the Triffids as an example of what he termed the “cosy catastrophe” SF subgenre in which a handful of survivors somehow manage to eke out a relatively comfortable existence even though the rest of humanity is wiped out. Who needs telephone hygienists after all, eh? )

Wyndham’s book has been filmed thrice already: as a horribly bad 1963 American B-movie and two British TV productions, one in the early 1980s and another as recent as 2009. This particular brand of post-apocalyptic subgenre is of course nothing new and plot strands from Day of the Triffids have made its way into the likes of 28 Days Later amongst others throughout the years.

How seriously audiences will take the notion of killer plants is another matter altogether. For many audiences it is a subject ripe for parody as the musical version of Little Shop of Horrors has illustrated. The recent The Ruins, which featured killer vines, for instance didn’t go down particularly well with audiences.

However, if anyone can make an invasion by killer plants work it’d have to be Sam Raimi who is currently fishing round for a new project now that his Spider-man 4 project fell through and is being re-booted as they in Hollywood-ese without him or any of the original films’ stars. After all, his debut movie Evil Dead famously featured a woman raped by a tree . . . No, seriously.

It is unclear at this stage whether Raimi will direct the project himself or just produce it.

The film follows two geeky guys who discover an intergalatic intruder has been living amongst the humans for 60 years. Paul has even been advising the government and the film industry, claiming DAVID DUCHOVNY‘s fictional role as Agent Mulder in The X Files was “my idea”.

But when the trio embark on a road trip, they form an unlikely bond. Simon said of his character: “Graham’s very sweet, he’s an innocent. “He’s a guy that can’t really function well in society because he’s very shy. “Paul enables him to have the confidence to ask a girl out… after he falls for one-eyed Ruth.”

Paul hits screens on Feb 14.

 

Source Code centers on a soldier (Gyllenhaal) who, as part of an experimental government program to investigate a terrorist incident, finds himself in the body of an unknown commuter living and reliving a harrowing train bombing until he can find out who is responsible for it.

Farmiga will play a hands-on communications officer controlling Gyllenhaal as he travels through time and space. Monaghan is a woman on the train with whom the man is involved romantically.

(Actually the film is due for release on March 4th, 2011 (U.S.)

Another “found footage” movie like Paranormal Activity and Blair Witch Project.

This time the footage involves Apollo 18 – a mission to the moon in the 1970s which NASA claims never happened. However the newly discovered footage which NASA has been keeping under wraps all these years proves the existence of, er, killer aliens on the moon.

Sean Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant, father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.

And here’s the original 1982 ‘Tron’ trailer…

A documentary on Michael Ruppert, a police officer turned independent reporter who predicted the current financial crisis in his self-published newsletter, From the Wilderness.

If you’re into Sci-Fi or interested in alternative views of Earth’s history disguised in a futuristic wrapping, then this is a whopper…. either way there’s something alluring about the overall storyline.

I’m new to the show; which one do I watch first?! (see below)

This is just a quick post relating to the film ‘A Clockwork Orange

I just noticed while writing my blog post of ‘Who is Simon Cowell’ (not live yet) , how the main character  (Alex) in the Stanley Kubrick film A Clockwork Orange has his right ‘eye’ highlighted. I’ve always just accepted this as part of the film’s weirdness or style. But could it be that Kubrick may have been making a reference towards the Illuminati’s ‘All Seeing Eye? ‘. This theory can also be backed up by the use of the pyramid in the film’s cover design.

Here’s a news clip on Kubick’s life and death…

Note: Clearly Kubrick’s last work ‘Eyes Wide Shut‘ (before he died of a ‘heart attack’) was aimed at exposing some of the elements behind secret societies…
