365 Movies Day #227 "Biting Elbows: Insane Office Escape"

We've had a lot of variety on the blog featuring all sorts of shorts, webisodes, feature films and youtube videos. This is the first music video! It's actually two. The band Biting Elbows is a badass indie-punk band out of Moscow, Russia. They teamed up with some amazingly innovative Russian filmmakers to make one of the most adrenaline pumping videos I've ever seen.

The video is a first person narrative shot entirely with GoPro cameras that follows our hero on his quest to protect and retrieve a water activated teleportation device. It's a lot of Call of Duty style action mixed with some kick-butt parkour, wicked car chases and even...explosions. The music is also pretty awesome. Check out the videos above and like the band's facebook page for more info at:

365 Movies Day #226 "Iron Sky"

What could be more awesome than a movie about moon Nazis invading Earth?!  Timo Vuorensola nails both the action and comedy elements of the film.  It's fun and everything you would expect from the trailer.  Incredibly well done.  Presently Timo is signed on to direct the films "I Killed Adolf Hitler" and "Paris I'll Kill You".  I can't wait!

Iron Sky stars Christopher Kirby ("Star Wars: Episode III", "Daybreakers", "The Matrix") as token black astronaut James Washington who unwittingly discovers the Nazi's hidden moonbase commanded by the always chilling Udo Kier ("Blade", "End of Days", "Johnny Mneumonic") and Götz Otto ("Cloud Atlas", "Tomorrow Never Dies").  What happens after is a hilariously absurd adventure that is sure to leave you wanting more.  Special shout out to Julia Dietze, who plays the beautiful and well-meaning Nazi Renate Richter and Stephanie Paul who plays the U.S. president who is a dead ringer for Sarah Palin!

Definitely one to check out!
