Cool! It'll be interesting to see how they avoid comparisons to Dune...

Also, I meant to post this a while ago...

    Comparisons are inevitable, but everything has been already done.  I don't know if this is going to be a full-length project though.

    The monsters are cool.  They're reminiscent of a novel by Dr. Robert Forward about giant sky creatures that live in Saturn's atmosphere. Saturn Rukh.

    I'm speechless. And my fingers hurt from watching. I thought I knew how to play guitar, but now I know I really don't.

    I've said it many times before;
    Just when you start to think you're a badass chops monster, somewhere (usually Japan) some 13 year old girl is owning you like Paris Hilton's chihuahua.

    Just when I had given up on sci-fi movies... The screen wouldn't take my money no matter how much I threw at it.

    I wonder what all of the police along the route are thinking as he goes by?

    I would be thinking "1) Looks like fun, and 2)Please Dear God, don't let him ever be the driver of the getaway car...."

    That is one sick ride.  And some awesome driving skill.  I would love to know what kind of mechanicals are keeping the 800+ horsepower hooked up to the front end.

    Something that came up in my Facebook feed:

    http://www.nam.ac.uk/waterloo200/200-object/antoine-fauveau-cuirass/

    Quote
    Excerpt:
    This is a French cuirass, a breastplate worn as body armour by French cavalry. The hole is from a British cannonball that smashed through the unlucky soldier’s chest. The Waterloo campaign was the first occasion that British troops found themselves face to face with Napoleon’s heavy cavalry, whose armoured cuirasses and metal helmets made them a daunting foe.

    Yet as the British would discover, even these armoured troopers were by no means invincible as this breastplate brings home with shocking force.

    The bulk of Napoleon’s heavy cavalry was made up of the twelve regiments of Cuirassiers, but the elite of the arm, in their own eyes at least, were the men of the two regiments of Carabiniers. With a lineage running back to 1679, the Carabiniers had only been given cuirasses in 1809. Unlike the cuirassiers, their armour was gilded with brass rather than being of polished iron, and their old blue uniforms were changed for white. Both regiments served with distinction throughout the Napoleonic Wars, and in 1815 were brigaded together under Général de Brigade Blanchard as part of Général de Division Kellermann’s III Corps de Cavalerie.
