Get Ready for the Next Great G.I. Joe Fan Film, G.I. JOE: INITIATE!.


Since you’ve been such good Girls and Boys while Fanboy Will was away, I’ve decided to treat you to an extra special treat today…Today’s FFOTD is an action packed, ultra-violent tribute to America’s favorite highly trained special missions force, G.I. JOE! G.I. JOE: Operation Red Retrieval is the brainchild of Director Mark Cheng and takes no prisoners when it comes to the gritty Military realism, and the true ugliness of warfare. Yep, This ain’t the Joe you watched as a kid, but it does feature many of the characters from the show, and, SURPRISE SURPRISE they are actually dressed like their animated counterparts 🙂 If only Hollywood could take a hint from Mr. Cheng and crew…Oh well…Great job Mark! I truly feel your love, and passion for G.I. JOE all throughout this film. From one Joe fan to another, Thank you Sir 🙂 One final note..This Fan Film is NOT for the little ones, so before viewing throw on Toy Story in the next room or something..Now, sit back and enjoy!

PS-The surprise ending is killer!

Set to Hit the internet next August is a different sort of Star Wars Fan Film, Plastic Galaxy-The Story Of Star Wars Toys! That’s right, this film will document the phenomena of Star Wars collectibles, and their legion of fans worldwide. Here are a few words from Brian Stillman (Director of the film), and X-Ray Films…

“When Star Wars landed in the theaters, it introduced audiences to a galaxy filled with heroes and villains, robots and space ships, and a dizzying variety of alien life. But when the lights came up, they all disappeared…

Unless you had all the toys. In which case, the adventure never had to end.

In backyards, playgrounds, basements, and bedrooms, Star Wars toys helped kids re-enact scenes from their favorite movies, and create entirely new dangers for Luke Skywalker and his friends to face. They were lusted after on holidays and birthdays, swapped with great cunning out on the school yard, and carefully collected like fine treasures. Like no toys before them, the action figures, space ships, play sets, and props were a phenomenon that swept the nation with as much force as the film that inspired them. Along the way they transformed both the toy and movie industries, earned those behind them vast amounts of wealth, and ultimately created a hobby that, 30 years later, still holds sway over not only the people who grew up with the toys, but also an entirely new generation of fans.

Plastic Galaxy is a documentary that explores the groundbreaking and breathtaking world of Star Wars toys. Through interviews with former Kenner employees, experts, authors, and collectors, it looks at the toys’ history, their influence, and the fond and fervent feelings they elicit today.”

I’m really excited about this one, being a Star Wars collector Myself 🙂 The film will be set for a DVD release date of August 2012. Until then please stop by the official home of the upcoming film HERE.
