For April Fool’s Day, Artist Julien Knez designed a series of fake VHS covers for modern TV shows and movies. They were too good not to share the rest after the break.
Game of Thrones is a popular but ridiculously expensive show with a huge cast. That “expensive” part comes into play more often than you might think. While there is generally a huge set piece, often a battle scene, appearing around episode 9 out of a 10 episode season run, the show has to cut corners in other ways. Think of how Peter Dinklage was conveniently knocked unconscious just before a battle scene in season one. The book the season was based on does show Tyrion knocked out, but only a bit after the battle has started. Or consider how King Robert’s eventually fatal hunting party was essentially four guys on foot. No horses, and no entourage. Or just how often characters seem to be on foot, even if they were on horseback at some point. These are small ways the show has done things to keep costs down, and Game of Thrones is hardly the only TV show that does it, but there is one method that happens a bit more often than someone stealing the horses between scenes.
One such way is the bottle episode. Continue reading When TV Shows Try To Save Money: The Bottle Episode
Back in Episode 21 of Gabbing Geek, the Geeks played a game of “Sequel, Reboot, or LET IT DIE!” In that now legendary segment (my mom liked it), we offered our not so humble opinions on how to manage some prominent Geek film properties. A movie like Goonies, for instance, could be rebooted for a new generation, continued with the original kids now parents to a next generation of Goonies, or Let the franchise die (which is somewhat incompatible with their motto…) Some franchises were destined to be continued, yet along the way the wheels fell off the bus. Let’s make up for Hollywood’s sins and green light a few films in the PURE SEQUEL category.
