The Best Short Films

Why Watch? Because this short film is made entirely of still photographs (over 4,500 to be inexact), all of which capture the beauty of Rome and the two people falling in love because of a chance encounter. This is what happens when you’re a beautiful woman who misses a train – a gorgeous man takes you on a night-time tour of the ridiculously breathtaking city you’re in. The effect of the pictures (like a flip book or stop motion animation with humans) might be a little jarring for some, but it definitely adds to the dreaminess of the entire experience. What Will It Cost? Just 6 minutes of your time. Check out Notte Sento for yourself:



The newest original series from HBO is a dense tapestry of people and places. It’s based on the first chapter of an epic fantasy series referred to as “The Song of Ice and Fire”, and the first episode alone introduces us to more characters than you can shake a stick at. Don’t let that deter you from putting in the work to follow the series though; HBO has pulled off stuff like this before. It took me three or four episodes of The Wire before I really knew who everyone was and what was going on, and that turned out to be the greatest television show ever produced. Seeing as this one was developed by the same people who gave us the epic, badass series Rome, I would say that Game of Thrones has a lofty task ahead of it, but a better than average chance at becoming a success; especially if it keeps up the quality of the first episode.



It’s more ancient history for Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton, the producers of the smash hit film 300. The pair is planning to produce a historical drama based on Conn Iggulden’s bestselling “Emperor Book” series about the life of Julius Caesar.



HBO has produced some great programming. One of their best was the series Rome. It was the tale of ancient Rome told through the eyes of two Roman soldiers, Vorenus and Pullo, who are actually mentioned by Julius Caesar. The series was one of the best things HBO ever did, but they got cold feet at the prospect of continuing the expensive series and pulled the plug in year.



Rob Hunter loves movies. He also loves his job as a CPA who occasionally finds a little mystery thrown his way. These two joys come together in the form of cash money payments that he receives every week and immediately uses to buy more DVDs. This week includes Star Trek, Vampire Party, Taintlight, and more!



Aside from taking Dr. Cole Abaius’ advice to change the name of this column to ‘This Fortnight in Blu-ray,’ I can’t say that I’ve done much in the way of the HD format lately. So this week we’re back on the bus…



Rome. Now there was a television series! HBO knocked it out of the ballpark with its lavish take on ancient Rome in those crazy days of the ascendancy of Julius Caesar, the battles between Mark Antony and Octavian, the man who would be Augustus during the glory days of Rome.
