Cyberpunk Short Film Review: ‘Reboot’

Posted: 27 Oct 2012 03:00 PM PDT


Reboot Directed by Joe Kawasaki
Written by Joe Kawasaki
Starring Emily Somers, Travis Aaron Wade, Martin Copping, Sonalii Castillo, Janna Bossier
Jan-Ken-Po Pictures
Unrated | 40 Minutes
Release Date: 2012

What would happen if, all of a sudden, the global network went black? Economic chaos, societal collapse, cats and dogs living together. Mass hysteria! Reboot is a cyberthriller film that posits the idea that whoever controls the global network, controls the world.

Director Joe Kawasaki put together this 40 minute short film with the aid of a successful Kickstarter campaign that helped the team with their productions costs. Whereas movies like Hackers eschewed any basis in reality for cool points, Reboot revels in its geekdom without beating you over the head with technical details. The result is a much better interpretation of hacker culture that touches on relevant, hot-button issues such as online privacy and freedom. [...]

Traffic Low Spark Cover

The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys, by the classic rock ensemble Traffic, led by the prolific Steve Winwood, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00.

By 1971, Traffic had already experienced major success with the prior release from 1970, "John Barleycorn Must Die" and Winwood was already pretty much a veteran of the late 1960s British classic rock boom and found big success with this album as well. [...]

Attack of the Show Image

G4, the channel aimed toward a geek audience, has decided to cancel its two best programs, Attack of the Show! and X-Play. The shows will continue through the end of this year.

The announcement comes as G4 now apparently is looking to transform itself into a network aimed toward an "upscale" male audience, similarly to the magazines GQ or Esquire (who could be companies that G4 is looking to partner with down the road), instead of anyone interested in video games and geek culture.

‘Skyfall’ & ‘Noah’ Screenwriter John Logan To Pen Next Two James Bond Movies

Posted: 27 Oct 2012 07:00 AM PDT

James Bond Image

John Logan, the screenwriter who penned the latest entry in the James Bond series, Skyfall, has been confirmed as the writer for the next two installments as well.

Logan is said to have presented a story arc to producers that would play out over the course of the two movies, and that they liked it enough to immediately set him off to work on them. It's also said that star Daniel Craig will be back for at least two more turns as Bond (after that is yet to be decided), so this may just be the grand finale they've been looking for to close out Craig and move on to the next if need be.
