Here’s a ‘Grand Theft Auto’ Fan Film Made with LEGO!

Man, it SURE has been a while since The PractitioNERD posted any sort of a LEGO-related story, but I’m glad we could get back on that 1000-piece LEGO train (toot-TOOOOT). With the success of the theatrical LEGO films (The LEGO Movie & The LEGO Batman Movie) and the unlikelyhood of a movie based on the Grand Theft Auto video game series (likely due to the rights to the movie title; THANKS Ron Howard), it’s very evident that these two brands will never officially mesh together. HOWEVER, the lovely concept of fan films DOES exist. YouTube movie maker love Nukazooka latest short brings the two together to create a winning combination.

An All-New “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” Trailer!

Holy crap, this movie comes out in ONLY TWO MORE MONTHS?!?! AND Logan comes out THIS FRIDAY?!? AND Power Rangers in THREE WEEKS?!? AND Ghost in the Shell THE WEEK AFTER?!? Jeezus! Anyway, last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Chris Pratt stopped by to introduce a tease trailer — for the actual, full-length second trailer — for the upcoming theatrical addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and sequel to the surprise summer hit of 2014), Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.  Once again, the universe needs saving and there’s no one more suited to the job than Marvel’s ragtag group of misfits.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, directed by James Gunn, hits theaters on May 5.

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”…

Watch the new ‘Wonder Woman’ trailer!

The newest trailer for DC’s Wonder Woman stand-alone film puts more of Wonder Woman’s (Gal Gadot) fighting capabilities on display, and shows a hint of a modern-set framing device to the film’s core World War I-era story. Essentially, the film is working as both a prequel/origin story for the character, as well as a follow-up to her silver-screen debut appearance in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — note: watch ONLY the Ultimate Edition/Director’s Cut of that movie; the Theatrical Version does NOT exist… #ShortRantOver

Anyway, Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, arrives in theaters on June 2nd 2017.

Documentary ‘She Got Game’ Focuses on Strengths of Women in the Gaming World

There are three thing I hate hearing about gamers from people who don’t play video games, because THEY know what they’re talking about, right? Anyway, here they are
1) Video games are made just for little kids.
2) The only people who play video games have no job, no drive, and no lives.
3) Girls don’t know anything/don’t play/are unable to play video game. Yes. I have actually heard that one. MORE than once. Continue reading Documentary ‘She Got Game’ Focuses on Strengths of Women in the Gaming World
