I Am Legend Could Have Been So Much Better.

Well this is disappointing. Being fans of the original book by Richard Matheson the film adaption starring Will Smith, released in 2007 wasn’t, in our humble opinion at least, the worst film ever made. It was certainly engaging enough throughout it’s first hour and the scene with his dog…well…*clears throat and opens a window*.

But the film pretty much came apart when the UV allergic zombie hybrid vampires showed up in all there shitty CGI glory, which makes this test footage video of the aborted version of the originally intended look of the vampires, all the more tragic.

As you can see Hollywood continues to ignore the fact that real actors with first class make-up are a hell of a lot scarier and realistic than computer generated characters. (via Slash Film)

Disney’s Ballad Of Nessie Reeks Of Stereotypes.

Red hair? Check. Kilts? Check. Tartan scarves? Check. Bagpipes? Check. Tired use of every Scottish stereotype known to man? Check.

That’s right folks Disney’s new animated feature is set in Scotland and not since the advent of this prick:

has there been so many Scottish stereotypes tightly crammed into one cartoon feature.

Apparently The Ballad Of Nessie is a short film which will be shown before their updated version of Winnie The Pooh which is set to open in theatres in July. The official synopsis for the animated feature, which is to be narrated by Harry Lauder Billy Connolly is as follows:

Set in the ‘bonny blue highlands’ of Scotland, The Ballad of Nessie is a whimsical and colorful tall tale about the friendly Loch Ness monster, Nessie, and how she (and her best friend, the rubber duck MacQuack) came to live in the moor they now call home. Setting the adventure into motion is a greedy land developer named MacFroogle, who decides to build a mini-golf empire on top of Nessie’s home.

See what Disney did? Changed Scrooge for MacFroogle, oh those drawy types are clever aren’t they? We would have preferred it if the character’s name was something a little more subtle, like MacTightbastard.
