Horror Flick About a Smartphone

The new generation and its iPhones and downloadable movies from Netflix etc. need a new horror film after The Ring, which basically relies on old fashioned phones and tape recorders. Here's the new generation's horror flick:
Seriously, somebody better come up with a new fresh idea of a scary movie with the new devices. Yes, you can make a Blair Witch Project or Cloverfield, just try to add another twist in it. How about the pictures these survivors are shooting are directly uploaded on their facebook pages?

Anyway, have a fun time!

Prometheus Teaser

Prometheus, the new movie by Ridley Scott, coming out in summer 2012, is my no.1 most anticipated movie of the year! It's neither a sequel, nor a prequel to the alien franchise. Its only relation as far as I see it, is it takes place in the same universe as the other alien movies did.

It searches for the answer of where human kind gained the boost to civilization like we did. Were the aliens responsible for it? Who's the engineer of these creatures? Who's the space jockey? Apparently a crew of specialists go onto a mission to the farthest corner of the universe to find out... and they find the horror... I guess. See this wonderful trailer, including the well known screams from the first Alien trailer of 1979. And if anybody figures the similiarity about those horns or braahms from the trailer with inception, try this link with a supposedly new trend in trailers using it: http://www.theshiznit.co.uk/feature/trailer-trend-rise-of-the-braaahhms.php Anyway, as long as it is used well, I don't care. At least it isn't Requiem For A Dream score.

Die Hard With an Interruption

This is a well made clip from the first installment of the Die Hard series with some interruption! I shot a kid. Yeah!

Keloid - Trailer

Like Ray Kurzweil predicts, the technological singularity is close. We just don't realize that the scenario in this short trailer, that Artificial Intelligence, is very close, only a couple decades from now.

Just so you know, this film has been made entirely of CGI. No real footage was used. I think James Cameron's Battle Angel (2016) will have the same quality, if not surpass it. Just imagine Avatar looking like Looney Tunes Cartoon compared to this.

Eliezer S. Yudkowsky* wrote about an experiment which had to do with Artificial Inteligence. In a near future, man will have given birth to machines that are able to rewrite their codes, to improve themselves, and, why not, to dispense with them. This idea sounded a little bit distant to some critic voices, so an experiment was to be done: keep the AI sealed in a box from which it could not get out except by one mean: convincing a human guardian to let it out.

What if, as Yudkowsky states, ‘Humans are not secure’? Could we chess match our best creation to grant our own survival? Would man be humble enough to accept he was superseded, to look for primitive ways to find himself back, to cure himself from a disease that’s on his own genes? How to capture a force we voluntarily set free? What if mankind worst enemy were humans?

In a near future, we will cease to be the dominant race.

In a near future, we will learn to fear what is to come.
