Ei vaikuta kovin yllätykselliseltä. Jossain määrin mielenkiintoista on se, minkälaisen tarinan tekijät ovat saaneet kyhättyä, jos lähtökohtana on alkuperäinen Castlevania. Siinä kun ei kovin kummoista juonta ollut.

Kiinnostavalta näyttää, mutten halua Netflixiä käyttää, joten katsominen jää tulevaisuuteen, kunnes se tulee katsottavaksi johonkin toiseen formaattiin. Tai sitten saan jostain käsiini ilmaiskuukauden, kun kaikki jaksot on julkaistu.

Netflix-sarjalle on jo oma virallinen julisteensa

Quote
With its horror-film-inspired world and tremendous action, the Castlevania game series appeared like a prime contender to be adapted into a film. In spite of endeavours to get a Castlevania motion picture going, the footing has never been there and it appears that we will never see the game adapted for the extra large screen. Nonetheless, on account of Netflix, Castlevania will go to the little screen as an animated series from the maker of 2012’s Dredd.

Adi Shankar, the producer, has made huge promises about his Castlevania series. He states that it will be the most awesome computer game adaptation ever. Furthermore, Shankar has run over with a little testing of the look and feel of his planned series. It’s particularly in accordance with what he has been prodding: something scary and not for children.

Shankar shared some poster art for Castlevania on Facebook. It’s particularly in sync to the game’s horror impacts, while including an additional layer of the bizarre. In it, a towering, supernatural mansion ascends before a crimson moon with bats fluttering all around in the dark. The draftsman responsible for this specific building may have been motivated by M.C. Escher with a dash of H.R. Giger.

Shankar says Castlevania will have a super-rough Game of Thrones feel. Therefore, don’t expect a Saturday Morning Cartoon to take the world by storm. In the event that the poster is any sign, the show’s look will be amazingly creative and dark.



The show’s story includes a character named Simon Belmont, a descendant of iconic vampire seekers, venturing inside Dracula’s mansion and battling his family’s ancient foe. In the event that the show follows after the first game, there will be numerous more creatures for Belmont to fight. They range from mummies to Medusas to Frankenstein to the Grim Reaper.

The game furnished Belmont with a wide variety of weapons including tossing axes, detonating bottles and a cross-shaped boomerang. Apparently, a considerable measure of these components will advance into the show, with some new twists.

The story and character components all appear to be set up for the Castlevania show to work. Furthermore, the straight computer game storyline gives a pleasant backbone to build a narrative. The key will be to discover a look that both catches the tone of the games and is remarkable enough to keep animation fans enthusiastic.

Ghost Ship of Phools / Re: Underrated movies

I'll pick up Soldier from 1998, starring Kurt Russell. While not being a sequel, the movie takes place in the same universe as Blade Runner, altough years before that movie takes place. The main character is Sergeant Todd, who has been trained to be a soldier since birth. During an exhibition, Todd is injured and presumed dead, and tossed into a unhabited garbage planet. There he wakes up and finds a settlement of spacecraft crash survivors, unknown to public. He tries living with them, but being a different person, it becomes difficult.

The movie bombed during it's original release, and has been a low-key film since, generating only a small cult following. I personally like the movie, mainly because of the story and especially because of Kurt Russel's performance as Todd. During the film, he speaks under 100 words, but talks so much with his eyes. I found it moving at some points, which is rare with the action genre. The film was directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, and written by David Webb Peoples. There has been a Blu-Ray release of the film, and it's definitely worth a watch.

I remember this movie and I like it. Watched it back in the early 2000's when still renting VHS movies  :jees:

Ghost Ship of Phools / Underrated movies

So, what movies do you think never got the attention they deserve?

I'll start with Fortress from 1992. Starring the very wooden Christopher Lambert (AKA Rayden AKA Highlander), he fits well into the role of a former black beret living in a future (2017; we're living in the future now, people!) where the whole world (or the US at least) has apparently taken a lesson from China and enforced a one child policy. He and his wife break the rule and end up in a high-tech prison where he needs to make an escape. It also co-stars Vernon Wells (better known from Mad Max and the world's most unfair fight between him and Ahnuld in Commando) and Jeffrey "Re-Animator" Coombs.

Also, Kurtwood Smith as the prison director. There's a twist to his character which makes me think of a Robocop-related casting gag.

The effects are decent, the acting's good (there's a definite b-list charm there, though) and..well, it's worth a watch. Apparently the film did well financially, so I'm not sure you could call it truly underrated. But hardly ever do I stumble upon it in lists of decent/great sci-fi movies from the 90's. And critics hated it, so..

Tuskin kaikenkattava visualisointi, mutta melko informatiivinen tapa verrata janoja keskenään.

Näköjään Wikin anaalinen siipi on iskenyt ja aloitusviestin artikkeli on poistettu  :jees:
