Here are updates to our animated film adaptation of the "Bernardo Carpio" lore.
A media review for my Media Theory class analyzing the increased Uighur Muslims coverage after the release of the Disney live-action film "Mulan" After the straight-to-streaming release of Disney’s Mulan in the Disney+ platform in the U.S. and other selected countries on Sept. 4, 2020 (‘Mulan (2020)’ [IMDb], n.d.), this live-action adaptation of the Chinese legend came under fire after viewers discovered the acknowledgment of the government security agency in the Chinese province of Xinjiang in the film’s closing credits. Xinjiang authorities are accused of the
This project is a jumpstart to that same endeavor that began almost a decade ago, which had to be shelved due to documentary issues in processing and releasing the second tranche of the budget from the funding agency. We knew that there will always be a right time for this, and after proposing to the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) in the last quarter of 2019, we received the good news by February 2020 that we got
Sharing this from my fellow artists from Tuldok Animation Studios. This is our short film adaptation of the Bernardo Carpio story. We never thought that jumpstarting this animated short would have this personal impact to us involved in the project, given the entire world is currently at a halt. Suddenly, we realized how the lockdown and this story have something in common... The Bernardo Carpio Film Call for Character Design First, we hope you are coping up well in these trying times. As
"Wreck It Ralph" Collector's Edition houses a two-disc set containing the film's Blu-ray and DVD copies, along with a couple of extras. This is Disney's well-received 52nd animated feature that brings a heartwarming identity-crisis tale set in sprawling hub-worlds and video game locations. The story revolves around the supposedly villainous Ralph who simply wants some appreciation and self-worth. He ventures outside his '80s-era game to try to look for his ticket to heroism and happiness. However, he soon wrecks everything
"300: Rise of an Empire” doesn't top or equal the original, but this companion piece to the 2007 blockbuster "300" still offers some deliciously sly camp filled with the franchise's signature speed-ramping fights and bloody CGI gore. This time, the story utilizes love and vengeance for its central theme, while consistently delivering a sense of duality to the story and character elements presented in the "300" movie canon. The film is primarily set in the Greek waters where epic naval
"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" entertains with its fiery wave of action and adventure. However, it remains hamstrung by its own middle chapter narrative problems. Clearly forced into a trilogy stretch for the cash-cow potential of a single book, this second "Hobbit" film proves that one can have too much of a good thing when it comes to delivering a quota of thrills, but still end up as yet another ponderous placeholder for the grand finale. At the very least,
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is a smashing sci-fi commentary that is in many ways full of good old-fashioned escapism. It is often full of well-paced action, fluid drama and subtle romance, as well as ornate costumes and seamless CG effects. It is every bit an intense and gripping piece of entertainment with no line or character getting wasted on screen. Cleverly helmed by Francis Lawrence, this follow-up to the 2012 blockbuster film takes the popular franchise into a deeper
"The Wolverine" is a fairly solid standalone offering that redeems itself from the significantly weaker "X-Men" spin-off "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." Somber and restrained, this film presents a refreshing noir reboot for the franchise. Compared to other "X-Men" blockbuster movies, it utilizes a contemplative tone and a deliberately slower pace, while clearly managing to keep the momentum for another brewing sequel. Interestingly, this dark and slow-moving character study doesn't feel much like a summer superhero movie, which isn't actually a bad thing.
