[Once again, this time with working video embeds.] Director Samuel Jorgensen has won a lot of fans around these parts over the years with his short films, works that typically blend solid character work with a polish and high quality VFX that are well beyond what should be possible with the budgets in hand. And now Jorgensen is at it again, raising funds on Kickstarter for Singularity, a film that looks to be his most impressive yet.
Singularity is a sci-fi action short film set in the near future
about a civil war between humans and sentient androids. The film tells
the story of a group of Delta force soldiers who are ambushed by
androids as they attempt to rescue the US president.

Oftentimes, the villains have better character arcs, and are far more interesting than the good people who fight them. They intrigue, or are even sympathetic....
This week, the grand finale of The Hunger Games trilo-whoops-quadrilogy arrives in cinemas, with the adventures of reluctant heroine Katniss Everdeen coming to a close. Pierce Conran saw the ending and quite liked it, as he stated in his review. Katniss' target is the evil President Snow, as played by...
As we approach the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I've been noodling the idea of writing some sort of defense of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. If stirring up the comments section is an objective of any "think piece" on the internet in 2015, standing up and saying...
(Bond may be back, but so is the nefarious organization known as Team TwitchFilm!) Last week, Sam Mendes' second Bond film Spectre got its wide release in the United States, and loads of other places as well. By sheer luck, or rather the mystifying world of movie distribution, some...
