The Gauntlet Character Previews
Episode 8 of The List is shaping up, and should be out towards the end of the week. Yeah, it’s a little late, but February short changed me a few days, I got a nice cold, and Mass Effect 2 didn’t affect my free time at all (okay, maybe just a little bit). Anyway, enjoy this preview pic for now. Can you tell who any of those characters are?

Also, The Scattering did a sweet review of The List! You should check out the indie reviews that she does on her site, because it’s awesome!

Check This Out: Merantau

2 Comments

I caught this Indonesian martial arts film the other day and was pleasantly surprised. While on his Merantau (basically a rite of passage journey), Yuda befriends a girl who he must protect from a dangerous human trafficking ring. He does this using Silat – the versatile and bone crunching martial arts style native to the Indonesian area – which results in some fantastically choreographed fight scenes. Iko Uwais, the lead, was enjoyable to watch, and I’m looking forward to his future roles (it looks like he’s got a movie coming this year titled Berandal, sweet!). – Scratch that, it looks like the new project is titled The Raid. Thanks, Kunderemp!

At first glance this movie might look similar to Tony Ja’s Ong Bak or The Protector, but it has deeper characterization and I liked the story better (think Taken) and kind of a surprise ending. In any case if you enjoyed those two movies I just mentioned, there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy this as well. Those of you with Netflix, Merantau is available to watch instantly, so check it out!.

Check This Out: Greenside

Greenside is a a short feature from Corridor Digital, featuring some pretty fun choreography mixed in with a dystopian setting – what’s not to like about that? I especially enjoyed the night stick fight (I’m a sucker for arm locks!), and I like the fact that the baddies don’t always go down after one hit.

If you liked the video above, why don’t you go check out the movie in it’s 42 minute entirety?
