UPDATE:
  • To paraphrase Cinematical's description, Passion Play is a movie about a down-on-his-luck trumpet player (Mickey Rourke) who seeks redemption from an angel (Megan Fox) who's being paraded around like a circus freak by a local gangster named Happy Shannon (Bill Murray). Woah. Interesting story and an interesting cast. Click through to top it off with an interesting clip.

UPDATE 1:
  • I wasn't going to mention this, because it's kind of old news, but just in case you haven't discovered it yet, behold the genius and awesomeness of Axe Cop. It's a sci-fi/fantasy/action web comic written by a 5-year-old and drawn by his 29-year-old brother. It is pure, wild, unfettered imagination - insane, hilarious, and fantastic. There are many, many episodes already, so it's taking me a while to catch up, but somehow it just keeps getting better with every episode I read. Check it out.

UPDATE 2:
  • The guy who played the French master thief in the Ocean's movies is playing a real master thief in this movie. Looks good. (I don't remember where I got the link.)

On the Viewer - Caprica (Pilot - Extended Cut)
 by Fëanor

Just so you know, SPOILER ALERT!

We open with three people looking in on a hellish scene of sex and death and debauchery, as if they're angels, or beings from the future.

Ken: "It's not their fault, you know. They just... they don't know what they're doing."
Um... that's a very Jesus-like thing to say.

Zoe: "Go frak yourself."
Yep, we're back in the BG universe all right!

The technology is cool. She logs into the holoband by bringing up a menu on a piece of paper.

Woah! Religious terrorist suicide bombing!

The friendship between the two bereft men feels... odd. Kind of forced.

Another BG detail appears: the sport of pyramid.

Wow. The bloody Zoe in the holoband. That's creepy.

Hey, it's an old school Cylon Centurion! Not exactly up to snuff yet, though.

I kind of love the Greystone's butler robot.

Lacy: "Back there are the group sex and drug rooms. Keep going past that and you'll find the really gross stuff."
Okay then.

So... virtual Zoe is an amalgamation of all the information about Zoe that exists in computers all over the world. That's... vaguely clever. But also kind of lame. How could it be so complete and so real based entirely on stuff like that?

The Taurons are like the Jewish mob, then?

It's kind of sick watching Greystone have a tearful reunion with his virtual daughter and realize that he's just going to steal this technology for his Cylon war machines.

The cop investigating the bombing presents an interesting, extremely negative interpretation of monotheism.

Greystone is one twisted son of a bitch.

Dude, the Defense Minister is the Cigarette-Smoking Man from The X-Files!!

They are not effectively conveying for me the attraction of monotheism to a young girl. But maybe that's on me.

Lacy's spilling her guts! Not sure yet if she decided to do it to exactly the right or exactly the wrong person...

Joseph meeting his daughter's avatar is an absolutely horrific, wrenching sequence. It's extremely powerful. "Daddy, my heart isn't beating. Why isn't my heart beating?" Argh!

Greystone is putting his daughter's mind into the ugly, clumsy Cylon warrior body. What a horrible idea!

In his attempts to bring his daughter back, Greystone has lost her forever. A slightly obvious moral parable, but pretty well done all the same. I also like that Joseph was sorely tempted by this idea, but that he turned away in the end.

Joseph reveals his true Tauron name to his son: Adama. Wow. Very cool connection.

The Cylon is officially born - and Zoe is still inside it.

What a horrific origin story! This is a powerful movie that really stands on its own as a Battlestar Galactica prequel. I'm curious to see where a TV series could really go with all this. I'm definitely willing to give it a shot.

This is what I'm doing instead of writing my novel. I need to get back to that!
