1) F-Zero / Wizorb cross over video game
F-Zorb would be a racing game like F-Zero with a built in puzzle-battle mode. When vehicles approach they can toggle a lock-on function that activates a dual screen top-down effect. The vehicles are automatically rendered as retro 2-D block collections that then battle in Wizorb fashion. Picture a block breaker, pong style back and forth between opponents, while battle racing to the finish.
2) Narcos Netflix series, seasons 4-6, to focus on the rise of El Chapo
Finish the Colombian Cali Cartel storyline in season 3 and start the transition to Mexican Narcos, using Roberto Bolaño’s source material.
3) A New Judge Dredd movie on “The Robot Wars”
Call-Me-Kenneth is the perfect villain for a proper Judge Dredd reboot. This time around the tone needs to be more like a Robert Rodriguez “grindhouse” film with emphasis on cyborgs and the rise of the Neon Knights.
Find a new tweet each day in the month of April @BeardofSteel on Twitter. 30 quotes from the first chapter of 1984 rationed for victory and assembled by the hashtag 301984. 30 years after 1984, in the year 2014, I also pieced together a literary analysis of 1Q84, V for Vendetta and 1984, that explores their lasting appeal. #301984 attempts to clarify all of the sudden resurgence in popularity of a novel published 70 years ago. Enjoy!
Through the month of March, I managed to write 3 short essays on the major changes in Motion Pictures during the last decade of the twentieth century; it takes less than 10 minutes to read. First, the over saturation of satire set the stage for post-truth realities in the 21st century. Second, Web 2.0 brought life to a Truman Show way of life for all, the blueprint for our contemporary echo chambers and the death knell to the theater experience — as it stands now the majority of moviegoers in 2017 are over age 50. Third, the extension of viewing times exceeded the matinee marathon and binge-watching bloated audience appetite for all-you-can-eat storytelling. Read all about it on Medium:
