Damn Global Economy…It’s bad enough the stupid US Market screwed with our economy, now it threatens the much anticipated GREEN LANTERN MOVIE! Sons of bitches!

THIS ARTICLE reports that the production of the Green Lantern film may be in jeopardy due to the rising strength of the Australian dollar. The film was due to start shooting out here in 2010. One of the main reasons Hollywood likes to shoot in Australia is because of the better value for money. Now, with the value of the US dollar slipping, it seems the Green Lantern producers are having to reconsider where to shoot the film.

The release date for GREEN LANTERN has already been pushed back once. If the production moves location then certainly it will push the release date back further. I’m already struggling with the fact that I gotta wait 2 years for this thing. Any more delays and I may need therapy.

Anyway, check the article out for more details.

Hey fans. Thought I’d just let you all know that after more than a year, SUBURBAN KNIGHTS Episode 2: DEATH CRUSH is finally complete.

“Well, where the Hell can I see it?!” I hear you all cry out in unison. Sadly the answer is: “Well I’m afraid you’re just gonna have to wait!”

“But why, you bastard?!” you’re no doubt yelling at the screen as you read this.

Well the reason is that we’re planning on screening Episodes 1 and 2 back-to-back at a major Melbourne facility in a couple of months. The screening is really a ‘thanks’ to all those who helped us put SK2 together. We really want SK2 to premiere on the big screen and get as many people along as possible so we can all come together and rejoice in the brilliance that is SUBURBAN KNIGHTS.

If you’d like to come along to the FREE screening, please let us know. As the screening is private, we need to have a complete guest list on the door. This is to both keep the facility happy and to avoid any undesirables trying to sneak a peek at some real art that they would, quite frankly, fail to comprehend.

EPISODE 2 will be online immediately following the screening. So all you International fans (and there are millions of you) will be able to see the film just a few hours after the premiere.

So in the meantime, stay tuned to the SK BLOG. Screening details are due to be confirmed within the week. It should be a fun night. So please let me know if you’d like to come along and we’ll add your name to the list.


Star Wars vs Star Trek: No contest

Found THIS ENTRY over at GEEKDAD on Wired. It’s yet another article about Star Wars vs Star Trek. The author makes some rather sweeping observations such as this:

To the casual observer, Star Trek and Star Wars look a lot alike, beyond the obvious similarity between their names. Each has a lot of spaceships, strange worlds, ray guns, and aliens, many of whom look startlingly like humans with prosthetics and makeup.

which are quite honestly just bollocks. He fails to acknowledge the fact that Star Wars is cool, exciting, hard-core, cutting edge SciFi Fantasy whereas Star Trek is just gay. He also determines that Trek is superior. He arrives at this conclusion by applying his own lame, low self-esteem fueled logic. Nerd.

Anyway, check out the article and vote in the poll. Star Wars is winning anyway which just goes to show that yet another nerd got it WRONG.
