I admit it. I don’t get as enthusiastic about Jackie Chan movies as I used to. I didn’t even hear about Chinese Zodiac (CZ12) until today, and the United States is LAST territory for the film to open; so, I’m not expecting much. But judging from the trailer, not much from Jackie Chan is still a heluva lot.
There’s some nice Armor of God tone going on. And I gotta get one of those roller suits.

TARDIS Builders is a forum where people pool their knowledge to help one another build the ultimate replica TARDIS! And if you don’t need a giant, blue box, TARDIS Builders can also help you build the perfect TARDIS console! Dr. Who cosplay must be a different site.
Technically, if you climbed into one of these you’d just travel forward in time at the same rate as everybody else, but you’d look cooler (geekier?) doing it.

Dude, Ray Harryhausen is the guy who built the stop-motion dreams of my childhood. Responsible for the most memorable moments from all those Sinbad movies, Jason and the Argonauts, and (my childhood favorite) Clash of the Titans, Ray Harryhausen died yesterday (7 May) in London. Harryhausen was an era all unto himself.
This is a really great tribute from TCM:

Here are a couple of the props we’ve put together for our short film The Unlikely Mind of Howard Nimh:
This is the micro drive we’re putting on the side of the head of the actor playing Howard.
A micro drive is basically a flash drive on steroids. For the short film we’ve envisioned one that can be jacked into a person’s brain. There’s a USB port on one side so the micro drive can be linked to a computer. I guess the wi-fi model was too expensive for Howard.
The above is the NIMH II, a hybrid computer that’s central to the film’s story. The liquid is supposed to be the analog component.
The computer case we built on is an old heap from the 90’s or something. It’s beige. (We need to thank Melissa’s tech support for the donation of that antique.)
We just have a couple more production meetings and we’re ready to shoot. Production is scheduled for one day, Sunday, August 7th. We’ll post some stills in the coming weeks.
