He-Man animatics for the live action movie

just saw this blog post at themovieblog.com and i thought that this is some kind of rough animatics of He-man, but when I viewed it, I almost dropped my butt from my chair. Living and growing up with the old He-man cartoon still kicks in our bloods, and I know everyone didnt forget the animation and the Dolph Lundren the live action movie of He-man, which that when I watched it when I was a kid, never thought that it was a He-man live action movie. all I know that it was titled Masters of the Universe.

checked out the animatics here and see if it reaches your taste.
but for me... it will be awesome to have another live action movie. throwing a lot of CGI and great SFX. check out on Skeletor's line at the end.. cool di ba ?

Review: TransFormers The Movie DVD

transformersph
Review by : Mark Cerbo

ReviewReviewReviewReviewTransFormers The Movie DVD
Category:Movies
Genre: Action & Adventure
From director Michael Bay and executive producer Steven Spielberg comes a thrilling battle between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS. When their epic struggle comes to Earth, all that stands between the evil DECEPTICONS and ultimate power is a clue held by Sam Witwicky (Shia LeBeouf). Join the fight for mankind in the extra ordinary adventure "features some of the most spectacular action and special effects sequences of any movie of its kind and will appeal to the kid in all of us." -Claudia Puig, USA Today

The biggest movie to hit on DVD was a subject of speculations. There where a lot of hang ups and lose ends that was never explained. But at the end of the day the movie had thrilled a lot of people in the big screen. Now being released on DVD format there was disappointments as I watch both discs. As read in previous reports Michael Bay had to rush the release of the DVD. There was no time to correct Devastator as oppose to Decepticon Brawl in the toy.

There was no extended cut scenes that people expect to see, where it was shown in IMAX in the US. Though it was marketed with a transforming DVD turning into Optimus Prime reactions can be like a knee jerk. The release itself here in the Philippine was little clouded with controversy being a day late, but honestly there where unanswered questions for the delay.

A few comments where quite a surprise how the DVDs look like, they used a well known CD-R brand due to the color of the surface. It was too simple unlike if you compare it to other well known movie it looked a bit cheap.

The US version of the transforming DVD had a Target Exclusive comics, that was released only through the internet unreleased here. Though it was great to see it again this time in the small screen there was something missing. Something that the big screen had to offer what people expect about this DVD.

In the end it attracted buyers to get the heavy marketed transforming DVD but fell a little flat out not having those extras Bay had included in the US released editions.

DISC ONE

Same quality that was retained from the big screen plus added Michael Bay's commentary.


DISC TWO

The second disc featured some interesting stuff. Interviews by the director, executive producers, actors, Hasbro, and what not...

Our World
The Story Sparks - The beginning and making it in live film.
Human Allies - The humans and people behind it.
I Fight Giant Robots - The actors fight for there lives.
Background - Filming on locations.

Their War
Rise of the robots - Talks about Transformers from G1 to present.
Autobots Roll Out - Featuring our robot heroes.
Decepticon Strike - The evil `con on spotlight.
Inside The Allspark - Blending them in the real world.

More Than Meets The Eye
From The Script To Sand: The Skorponok Desert Attack - Filming the familiar scene.
Concepts - Artwork.
Theatrical Trailer - Contains Trailer 1, 2 & 4.

If your just going to add this to your DVD collection I suggest you get the steel case. For serious fans the transforming DVD, but as of now due to its sold as limited quantities. Overall I'm still optimistic that they will release a four disc edition that has everything. For now a transforming DVD will do for a TransFan like me, but in the end they could have done better.

It was a big success for the Comics and Manga Day 2007, and even that there is no such event or day celebration for comics, we had just started a new beginning to have focus about creating comics and the joys of reading it. In line with the Arts and Literature of the month at Powerbooks, Glass House Graphics and Studio Sakka gives a wonderful panel discussion, art show, exhibit and drawing demo to all. As the people says in the event, it was more on an inspirational and motivation panel talks with the artist. Discussing from the life of an artists, from the discipline and values up to the challenges and success from doing a job that they truly love.

There was also a hot topic about Manga and Japanese comics, and still many people are interested in the topic, I opened the topic about hentai, doujinshi comics, the market, about being part of the pop culture, and american style manga. and many more.

The forum was great, I learned a lot from the pros. It was an open forum, so there was interaction between the audience and the speakers. It had also been a while since I talked in front of a large crowd, this time, as a member of the audience. - razekiel.deviantart.com (art professor)

People stayed from 1PM up to 7PM, and they didnt leave even we did a 30 minute break.
total of 60 people attended the event, plus walk in visitors. There were also Koreans who participated in the panels and also big comics readers, fans, artist and collectors who went at the event after attending a toy launch.

then at the end we raffle off Wilson's artwork and also free tickets of the comics seminar

Another round of applause to our pinoy comic artists.

During the event, I promised to them all that next year will be a big Comics and manga Day.

see you all on 2008 :)

Arnold Arre's Andong Agimat - movie !

// wow!! this is a one great news!


'Andong Agimat' to the US film mart
By Bayani San Diego Jr.
Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines -- Unitel head Tony Gloria has a new baby.

"This is my pet project," he says of "Ang Mundo ni Andong Agimat," a popular graphic novel by prize-winning author/illustrator Arnold Arre.

Gloria has acquired the rights to "Andong," which he plans to produce into either a feature film or a TV series. Or both.

"It can start as a feature film and we can later turn it into a TV series," he says.

For the role of Andong, Gloria is eyeing Robin Padilla.

"He's not your typical hero. Andong's a loner and an ex-convict," he explains.

Unitel is preparing an audio-visual presentation on "Andong," which Gloria will screen at the American Film Market, running from Oct. 31 to Nov. 7 in Santa Monica, California.

It's Unitel's fourth time in the US film mart. "We scanned and colorized the storyboards. We edited and set the footage to music. We also gave it a 3-D title," he says.

He hopes to attract investors—to finance or to co-produce—with the "Andong" teaser.

Gloria admits that producing "Andong" is expensive.

"You can't do it with P20 million. If I had P50 million that would be ideal. But I can make it with P30 million to P35 million," he says.
