Soooooo 2011 happened. Here’s some cool shit that happened in it.
Bastion: I’d say once a year somebody does something small that blows up and others follow. I feel This game will be a trend setter for years to come.
Scott Snyder: My favorite new comic writer. I feel like everything he’s doing is wonderful (batman, severed, swamp thing, american vampire). His run on detective was my favorite though. A really, really chilling tale. Please grab it and dig in. You can find it HERE
Attack the Block: My favorite movie this Year. Sometimes simplicity is your friend. I feel this was the antithesis to Super 8. Not a bad flick just what’s starting to bore me about hollywood. In ATB the kids are real, they’re dumb and violent, they’re real kids! The danger is real no one is safe, not animals, not kids. The music is spastic and raw not orchestral. The creature design is simple and effective, not a bunch of cobbled cg shit that inevitably looks generic.
Drive: My second fav. Again, Very simple, but highly effective. FYI this is not a fast & furious movie. You’ve been warned.
Lana Del Rey: SHe’s gonna blow up when that album comes out. Really matured, nicely put together music.
The Black mirror: The chilling 3 ep. Sci-fi anthology by charlie Brooker. This is fucking haunting. I’ll love and remember this forever. Here’s chalie talkin about it. Go find it.
Justified Season 2: It’s my favorite show and I honestly have no idea why .There’s just something about the rhythm of dialogue. Also, season 2 has one of the best villains’ I’ve ever seen.
Kung Fu Panda 2: I hated the first one. This was well nuanced and smart. Just solid. Here’s some fan art I just did for it cause I’m bored. BOOSH
The Killing: The closest thing I saw to the wire this year so it wins. Not for the fast paced. I prefer the slower paced cop dramas.
Chaser: I saw a lot of great Korean films this year(I saw the devil, mother, Man from nowhere) this was my favorite.
And of course weekly music
