Killing Moves Trailer: AvP

Killing Moves Trailer: AvP

NSFW or anyone who’s had breakfast: this Killing Moves trailer for Aliens vs. Predator is so brutal and fast-paced we had to take a breather; seriously, not a good day to be a colonial marine.

Blu-ray: Moon

E.T.A. (Short Film)

E.T.A. (Short Film)

Sure, Junkworks’ E.T.A. may be a sci-fi short film, but interstellar truck driver Marvin is a not so far-fetched look into our futures where life imitates art–however horrifyingly banal.

Figure: 12″ T-800

Figure: 12″ T-800

Short Film: Energy Hunter

Short Film: Quietus

Short Film: Quietus

Quietus (Part 1, Part 2) is a glacially slow sci-fi short but still intriguing; it was shot on an 8k budget, filmed in the style of Kubrick’s 2001, and uses the same Death Valley locations as Star Wars.

Funny: Battlestar Rhapsody

Funny: Battlestar Rhapsody

Queen fans may want to plug their ears, but Luke Ski’s Battlestar Rhapsody is a parody fit for an Opera House; best lines: “All the Hell, WTF, FTL!” and “Nothing frakking matters to me…”
