I recently screened this movie for the first time in a very long time, and I was surprised at some of the things I observed.
First, I can understand why there's been some talk of a remake. What is now accomplished by way of CG and motion capture is done the old-fashioned way in this flick. Puppetry and superimposition abound. The score isn't "Ladyhawke" bad, but it's dangerously close to it at times. These and a few other things make the film seem dated.
I just posted the first part of a story I hope to continue in Ravana's "Swordpunk" challenge thread. I'll have to finish some reading before I continue with it, but check out what I've got so far if you like.
If you do, drop me a line and tell me what you think, whether it's good or bad, ect. Even if you don't read my story, Ravana has one in there that's an awesome read. It's worth a look.
As of this afternoon, I have the first draft of my entry for Legendary Sidekick's new Trigger Challenge about 70% complete. It's coming along okay, but I'm a little worried about how well the plot matches up with Sidekick's requirements.
This challenge is supposed to be about the Year of the Dragon, whereas my story only involves the Year of the Dragon. It might be too late to change my story already, so I'll continue writing what comes naturally unless I find out differently.
I've been messing with this new portfolio thing for a few hours, and I really like it. I've posted a few chapters from a book I started and never will finish. The reasons for this are simple:
(a) It's boring
(b) It's cliched
(c) It's boringly cliched
But who knows? Maybe someone will enjoy it. If you do, feel free to leave a comment. I hope to see some collected works from other members real soon. See ya round the forums!
