Got Character? Goemon

26 Apr

Want a truly awesome movie experience? You don’t want to miss this one!

After having watched so many Asian action movies, I’ve felt like they were all melding together, making me a bit bored with the entire genre… Not the case with this one! Goemon kept me entranced from the very first scene.  The film follows the fairytale-like story of a Japanese Robin Hood character who helps shape the future of the nation.

Aside from having some really compelling action and drama, this movie is BEAUTIFUL.  On a mere $7 million budget this visually stunning epic was created using only green screens and a very limited set. The entire world this movie takes place in is computer generated, creating a solid bridge between animation and live action.  In addition, the character design and costumes were incredible. I couldn’t wait to see what they’d be wearing each scene!

Here are just a FEW of my favorites:

Got Character? Xena: Warrior Princess

21 Apr

For the first installation of “Got Character?” I’ve decided to feature one of my childhood favorites; Xena Warrior Princess.  My Netflix account and I have grown very close since I started working such long hours in my studio, so I took the time to revisit the show I would always cancel my Friday night plans for.  It’s campy and ridiculous, the good guys always win, nobody important ever dies without coming back to life within a couple episodes, and you just have to love it for what it is…

Plus, the costuming is badass!

Take a Look…
