DC Comics Fan Art — The Joker Gets His Smile

This some­what grue­some bit of fan art by Tov Mauzer shows the Clown Prince of Crime giving himself his trade­mark wide grin cour­tesy of a knife. The Glasgow smile wasn’t part of the Joker’s orig­inal look, but was added in the comics around 2008 (so around about the same time the Joker was shown with that look … Continue reading DC Comics Fan Art — The Joker Gets His Smile

Disney Fan Art — Disney’s Moulin Rouge

This image amuses me, mainly because I know there’s going to be a reac­tion to it. Mashing up Moulin Rouge and Disney in the form of Mickey and Minnie Mouse is a bizarre sort of thing to do, but it’s been very nicely executed by Mario Oscar Gabrielle.

The Akira Project — Fan Made Live Action Akira Trailer

For almost a decade and a half now there has been talk of a live action Holly­wood adap­ta­tion of Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira. A story that can justi­fi­ably be called a classic in two mediums (Manga and Animé). That adap­ta­tion has been awaited with a mixture of antic­i­pa­tion and dread (partic­u­larly with some of the ideas that were leaked). And yet it … Continue reading The Akira Project — Fan Made Live Action Akira Trailer

Hobbit Cosplay — Thranduil

The way Peter Jackson chose to portray J.R.R. Tolkien’s elves doesn’t exactly match what I had in my head. But to be fair I’m not sure I could even verbally explain how I see them in my head, so that is asking an awful lot. More impor­tantly cosplayer Abyssinian has really captured the look of captured the look of Thran­duil from the … Continue reading Hobbit Cosplay — Thran­duil

Adaptations, Reinterpretations, Reboots And Modifications

I was watching one of the intro­duc­tory lectures for the Comics & Graphics novels course that I’m taking ( https://​class​.coursera​.org/​c​o​m​i​c​s​-​0​0​1​/​c​l​ass ) and there was a very inter­esting discu­sison on the topic of what is the defin­i­tive edition of a comic book. The lecturer made an inter­esting compar­ison with Shakespeare’s Hamlet which also appeared in several editions. Which of … Continue reading Adap­ta­tions, Rein­ter­pre­ta­tions, Reboots And Modi­fi­ca­tions

Movie Review: Star Trek Into Darkness

This is an action movie. Set your expec­ta­tions accord­ingly. I know that’s not what all Star Trek fans want, but like the last Star Trek movie this is primarily about providing explo­sions and thrills. Person­ally I have to say I like that. Star Trek movies have been far too prone to pontif­i­ca­tion and while hitting on some deeper … Continue reading Movie Review: Star Trek Into Dark­ness

LEGO Jaws — Just When You Thought It Was Safe

I love the use of 3D in this LEGO recre­ation of the iconic JAWS poster. Builder Chris Adams even included the swimmer. Take a close look at how the sea effect was done too. Very clever. http://​www​.flickr​.com/​p​h​o​t​o​s​/​4​0​9​4​9​1​9​7​@​N​0​0​/​9​4​7​0​9​3​4​9​61/ Eoghann Irving Overly opin­ion­ated owner and author of eoghann​.com.

This Back To The Future Part II Fan Poster Is Cooler Than Back To The Future Part…

This Back To The Future Part II Fan Poster Is Cooler Than Back To The Future Part II Which may be selling the design of the poster a bit short actu­ally. Because person­ally I’ve always thought that Back to the Future II and III were weak sequels that really added nothing new to the concept of the … Continue reading This Back To The Future Part II Fan Poster Is Cooler Than Back To The Future Part…

Hobbit Cupcakes Are Good Enough For Elevenses

These cupcakes were made in antic­i­pa­tion of the release of The Hobbit: An Unex­pected Journey last year I think the way they did Gandalf is partic­u­larly clever, but there are nice touches on each of them. I often wonder though whether these sculpted cakes actu­ally taste good though. https://​www​.face​book​.com/​p​h​o​t​o​.​p​h​p​?​f​b​i​d​=​4​6​5​0​8​3​3​2​6​8​6​6​7​0​2​&​a​m​p​;​s​e​t​=​p​b​.​1​2​5​4​1​8​8​6​4​1​6​6​4​8​5​.​-​2​2​0​7​5​2​0​0​0​0​.​1​3​7​2​1​6​4​2​3​0​.​&​a​m​p​;​t​y​p​e​=​3​&​a​m​p​;​t​h​e​a​ter Eoghann Irving Overly opin­ion­ated owner and author of … Continue reading Hobbit Cupcakes Are Good Enough For Elevenses

LEGO Wizard Of Oz — Emerald City Balloon Departure

This epic panorama by Dave Kaleta depicts the depar­ture of the Wizard at the end of the The Wizard of Oz in his balloon. The design and color scheme is remark­ably faithful to the movie version of the story and there’s just so much detail in this it’s amazing. http://​www​.flickr​.com/​p​h​o​t​o​s​/​d​a​v​e​k​a​l​e​t​a​/​9​1​4​2​0​0​1​3​35/ Eoghann Irving Overly opin­ion­ated owner … Continue reading LEGO Wizard Of Oz — Emerald City Balloon Depar­ture

Legend of Zelda Fan Film — Link’s Shadow

This Legend of Zelda inspired fan-film featuring Link has some remark­able produc­tion values and manages to tell a simple but enter­taining tale in its short length.

Leia Leading The Rebels

This care­fully posed photo­graph uses Star Wars action figures to recreate a classic painting called Liberty Leading The People which was created to cele­brate the French Revo­lu­tion. In this version we have Princess Leia leading the rebel forces after the Battle of Hoth. Note the X-Wing in the skies in the back­ground. http://​www​.flickr​.com/​p​h​o​t​o​s​/​e​g​e​r​b​v​e​r​/​8​9​0​7​5​9​8​7​45/ Eoghann Irving … Continue reading Leia Leading The Rebels
