The Apple IIc; Great for Gaming, Greater for remaking ‘Star Wars’ trailers…

Oh, the Apple IIc; a classic personal computer from back in the day. It was released in 1984 as the compact (which is what the “c” stood for) device which was essentially a complete Apple II computer setup (without the display and power supply) squeezed into a small notebook-sized housing. Even though it was discontinued in 1988, many enthusiasts have continued to find new and interesting uses for the Apple IIc (like with MANY other devices no longer in-production). For example, this shot-by-shot trailer remake of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer is ONE of those interesting things Continue reading The Apple IIc; Great for Gaming, Greater for remaking ‘Star Wars’ trailers…

New Trailer and Release Date for ‘Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days’

If you’ve ever felt the eagerness to hop into the world of any movie from Quentin Tarantino, than you might enjoy this bit of news. A new cinematic-style trailer and release date has been announced for Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days, which will be out on PC and Steam on May 18  (that’s NEXT month!). The game centers around the bank robbery plot of the classic Quentin Tarantino film and turns it into a top-down shooter, similar to the popular Hotline Miami (one of my favorite games) with the stylized 3D graphics a’la Team Fortress 2, and a unique time-rewind mechanic. There’s currently no final price for the game, however you can get a quick look at the game with a new trailer posted above.

Now You Can Watch EVERY DAY from Groundhog Day…AT THE SAME TIME!!

Groundhog Day is an interesting and unique movies that somehow has the ability to balance the weight of its central premise — which is essentially time-travel via the constant repetition of a single day — while still showcasing excellent character development and laughs. To be honest, it definitely helps with Bill Murray’s performance as weatherman Phil Connors, and you gain an appreciation for how well the detailed replication of that same, single day — including the people in the background of each-and-every scene, and Connors’ response to the situation, ranging from confusion to frustration, to arrogance, to depression, to benevolence to more — but that’s often only noticed if you’ve repeatedly watched the film over-and-over again.  So today, The PractitioNERD wishes to give you this wonderful present on this Groundhog Day  in the year of our Lord twenty-seventeen, and now you can take in the film’s central premise with this YouTube video, titled “Groundhog Day – Every Day in One Day.” Also, go watch Groundhog Day.

Watch the Architecture Profession take a Satirical Turn in “The Architect”…

Aside from the frequent looks into the life of architect Ted Moseby from the TV series “How I Met Your Mother,” the architecture field hasn’t quite been a target for satire in the entertainment space. That brings me to “The Architect“, a new film directed by Jonathan Parker that brings forth the drama and comedy of the profession. The film features a humorous — yet somewhat believable in some cases — satire of architects, with character of the egocentric, self-centered and grandiose architect Miles Moss, portrayed by James Frain, who is working with a couple who wants him to design their dream home. Well golly-gee-whiz; what could POSSIBLY go wrong?!? Continue reading Watch the Architecture Profession take a Satirical Turn in “The Architect”…
