Yes, it has probably the worst title in the history of cinema. And, judging by the trailer, it may well be one of the worst movies of all time also. But, I’m a fan of the Wachowski brothers, so I might end up going to see it just the same.
Enough bragging about the movie, I’m actually writing this post to mention that I came across the end title sequence of the movie on Prologue’s website, and I really liked the vibe of it. Cool lighting and reflections effects mixed with fluid liquid animation give it a deja-vu, but still very interesting look.
Check it out here (click “movie” at the bottom), and here’s the trailer too.
Tonight was the 2009 American Music Awards broadcasted live on ABC, and I have to say it was quite a show. The performances were for the most part pretty amazing, and the setup looked really good.
But seriously, who designed the packaging for the show ? It looked like a cheap 1998 game show packaging. If anyone knows please drop it in the comments.
To come back to the show though, I must point out some amazing performances from Jay-Z and Alicia Keys performing “Empire State of Mind”, and a very nice comeback performance from Rihanna also. Even if the setup for his part was the least impressive, it was still great to see Eminem spit fiery verses off “Crack a Bottle” and “Forever”. Last but not least, something that is going to make the front page on every tabloid tomorrow is Adam Lambert’s performance, that involved him kissing another guy and having a guy simulate a BJ on him.
Here are a few videos from the AMA:

Youtube has been built-in the iPhone for as long as it’s been on the market, so it was a normal thought to wonder why there was no Vimeo support on the iPhone, since it is practically the runner-up in terms of video hosting on the web. Well, today CNET announced that Vimeo has made a mobile version of its website. Not all videos are iPhone enabled yet; only the staff picks are viewable from mobile devices.
Here’s the article for more info.
Not quite, but today, another web-based business man, Omar Hamoui, is a few days away from making $750 million dollars with his company called AdMob, which specializes in advertising on mobile devices. Who’s buying ? Google, of course ! Check out the articles here and here.
This is plain genius ! Credits here.
I can be the most geeky-gamer on a rainy Sunday, and God knows that I’ve spent many rainy Sundays playing the different Prince of Persia games. I haven’t played the new one yet, but I’m a pretty big fan of the entire series, and not only because of the gameplay, but also because of the storyline. It was just normal then that I was so stoked to hear about POP being made into a movie by Jerry Bruckheimer, and that Jake Gyllenhaal would be playing the role of the prince (I’m a huge Donnie Darko fan).
Then the trailer came out, and wow, what a let down. What I didn’t know is that it was a Disney movie, which already rules out the possibility of having any dark/scary/violent scenes, which the game is known for. Plus, there are about 3 cheesy Hollywood one-liners in the trailer alone, so that leaves us little to expect from the entire movie. And on top of that, Gyllenhaal’s character looks like he’s going to be a funny real-life Aladdin, whereas the Prince in the games, especially Warrior Within and Two Thrones, is more like a serious, dark warrior.
I have to say though that the production looks awesome, but can you really expect less from Mr. Pirates of the Caribbean ? I really hope I’m wrong about this one, but I tend to have a good flair about upcoming movies…
