Whether you’re a dedicated fan, first time watcher, or something in between – the latest Star Trek movie is fun action for everyone. A large swath of our OWC Team has now seen this Sci-Fi Action thriller and we’d like to share a little from them.
Team Member: OWC Larry Age: 18-24 | 25-34 | 35-44 | 45-54 | 54+ Department: Executive Enjoyed original Star Trek:Yes | No | Huh, there was an original before this? Comment: I enjoyed it immensely, first in 2D and then in iMax 3D. Unbelievable in iMax 3D! Whether a first time watcher or long time fan of the Star Trek universe, it easily enjoyable for all. Fate being fate, I enjoyed some of the clever homage paid to the original series. Article Continues…
Last week we shared Audi’s two Spocks commercial with you and it staved off our anticipation for our company outing this weekend to see Star Trek: Into Darkness for a little while. However after finding this gem of a Start Trek short from internet sensations Rhett & Link, I’m thinking I don’t even need to see the movie anymore. How could it possibly be better than this?
So, which do you think is better? Tell us in the comments.
After an appropriate two-day delay from its planned April 15 release out of respect for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, Funny or Die’s first full length movie iSteve has finally been bestowed upon us.
Well, maybe “finally” is the wrong word to use. That would imply there was a significant wait involved. There wasn’t. In fact, the whole point of this movie was to rush to be the first Steve Jobs biopic released and not keep us waiting for the two other Jobs films in the works.
Announced in March, iSteve reportedly was written in three days and filmed in just five to ensure it would be the first to be released. But none of that matters if the movie isn’t funny. So is it? Well, let’s just say Funny or Die could learn a lesson from Apple: being first to market doesn’t make you best. Article Continues…
When it comes to technology, it’s certainly helpful to be the best in your field. But sometimes, its even better to be first.
This theory apparently applies to the entertainment business as well. Humor site Funny or Die has just released the teaser trailer for its upcoming Steve Jobs satirical biopic “iSteve”. As made very clear in the movie’s tagline near the end of the trailer, this will be the first biopic of the former Apple CEO released. Two other more serious Jobs-centric movies are either currently in production or completed and awaiting release. (This is of course not counting the made-for-TV-movie “Pirates of Silicon Valley” that documents the rivalry between Apple Computer and Microsoft.)
Here are a few interesting facts about the production “iSteve”:
Actor Justin Long, who you probably remember from the famous “Get a Mac” campaign, will play the role of Jobs.
“iSteve” was written in just three days and filmed in five.
The movie will reportedly be between 60 and 75 minutes and will cover Jobs’ entire life.
So what are your thoughts on the movie? With its humorous tone, do you think it’s out of bounds or in poor taste? Is Justin Long being disrespectful to the man and company who helped give his profile a major boost? Sound off, and let us know what you think in the comments section.
“iSteve” is set for an April 15 online release exclusively at Funny or Die.
Lots of people want to watch Blu-ray movies on their Macs. Until now, though, doing so required ripping the movies to your hard drive and playing them that way. Mac Blu-ray Player from Macgo is a movie player that plays back Blu-ray movies from the original source discs.
After inserting a Blu-ray disc and launching the Mac Blu-ray Player application, you will be prompted to select your disc or a backed up .iso image. You must be connected to the Internet for the application to decrypt the disc for watching (a point brought up when this was discussed in OWC Radio, Episode #57). After the application scans the disc, it begins playback. Article Continues…
