The Trooping Dead- Season 02

I wanted the helmet to be reasonably scary but not so much that kids would have instant nightmares. I also wanted to show some tech parts of the helmet guts…after all they are supposed to be lined with cables etc… There is a plastic zombie face mask hiding the real face when wearing it, and […]

The Last Jedi in my opinion.

IMAX in China should be ashamed !

Every year they keep on doing this kind of cheap stunt in China. They cannot be bothered to actually understand Star Wars or spend a bit of cash to organize something decent… no they have to take these clowns who have no respect for the movie /culture.
