In the 5DNEWS section today we talk a little about the recent trailer for the latest addition to the Resident Evil universe.....the ResiEvilVerse if you will (thank you, I’m here all week).....and my god, it looks GREAT! Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is a fabulous looking anime series set to show on Netflix in the near future.


There’s also a bit more chat about the progress of the planned launch of the first powered flight on Mars, the Ingenuity helicopter - 3 flights down, baby! There’s also space related chat with the sad news this week that Apollo 11 pilot, Michael Collins died at the age of 90.


If all that news isn’t enough then there’s brief chat about the latest WB/Snyderverse spat..... it’s all going off!


In the main review section we look at the series finale of The Falcon and the Winter Solder as well as the incredible, unbelievably violent finale of Invincible animated series......bonkers!


We also have a less than positive word to say about the latest John Clancy book to film, Without Remorse, which features a wasted Michael. B. Jordan..... thats’ ‘wasted’ as in his talent rather than being continually drunk on set or something, obvs.

Bruce Campbell Bio:

In 1979 with his Detroit friends, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell raised $350,000 for a low-budget film, The Evil Dead (1981), in which he starred and co-executive produced. Completed piecemeal over four years, the film first gained notoriety in England where it became the best-selling video of 1983, beating out The Shining(1980). After its appearance at Cannes, where Stephen King dubbed it “the most ferociously original horror film of the year”, New Line Cinema stepped forward to release “Evil Dead” in the U.S.
Campbell then rejoined his Detroit colleagues to star and co-produce the second and third films in the Evil Dead trilogy (Evil Dead II (1987) & Army of Darkness (1992)), completing 12 years of work on the cult favorite.

*

This rough-and-tumble background was a plus as Campbell made his foray into television, first starring in the highly touted Fox series The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. (1993), then as a recurring guest-star on the hit show Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1993).
With these under his belt, Campbell easily made the transition to director, helming numerous episodes and recurring as the King of Thieves in the #1 syndicated Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (1995), and its follow-up phenomenon, Xena: Warrior Princess(1995).

*

Bruce has since expanded his range on television, appearing in anything from Disney’s update of The Wonderful World of Disney: The Love Bug (1997), to decidedly dramatic turns on the acclaimed series Homicide: Life on the Street (1993) and The X-Files (1993). At the invitation of ABC, Campbell ventured into the world of sitcoms with a recurring role on ABC’s Emmy- nominated Ellen (1994), participating in one of the three touted “out” episodes. Campbell then directed and starred as himself in My Name Is Bruce (2007), a spoof of his B-movie career, then re-teamed with Disney for their fun-filled hit, Sky High (2005).

*

In 2013, Bruce co-produced the hit remake of Evil Dead (2013), joined his filmmaking pal Sam Raimi on Oz The Great and Powerful (2013), and completed an impressive seven-year run on the spy show, Burn Notice (2007) (2007-2013), USA’s #1 show on cable. More than two decades after the release of Army of Darkness (1992), Bruce returned to his most iconic role for Ash vs Evil Dead (2015), a highly-anticipated series premiering on the Starz network on Halloween 2015.

Ep 144: 5D Pop Culture Podcast - It’s the Emperor’s new clothes!

 

While it’s genuinely not our intention to do so, it could be that we upset a fair number of people today as your hosts look at two behemothic (is that really a word?) releases this week. Because ladies and gentlemen! In the red corner we have the highly anticipated (and that’s an understatement!) release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League....... And in the Blue corner we have the 2nd new Marvel TV series appearing on Disney +, The Falcon and the winter soldier. 

Oh, and about ‘the upsetting people thing’......well yeah, we kind of really, really, really disliked one of them. A lot!

SPOILER ALERTS CONTAINED WITHIN!


In the 5DNEWS section today there’s a bit of a Machine Gun Kelly vibe going on as news about his planned graphic novel, Hotel Diablo’ emerges as well as news about Mgk (as we kids on the street refer to him) groups up with game content creation for new music. There’s also a quick mention about some leaked titbits about the forthcoming S10 of American Horror Story.

Also in the news there’s another addition to the Leeds United celeb watch as a bone ride boxing legend publishes a pic while wearing the famous white shirt. There’s also more LUFC news relating to another icon passing with the announcement yesterday that Peter Lorimer had died at the age of 74.

Ep 142: 5D Pop Culture Podcast - So LL Cool J is a Leeds United fan?

 



It was back in the deep dark days of October 2020 when we were delighted to collaborate with a German film company to help publicise the crowdfunding campaign for their sci-fi short film, Guardian. If you are so inclined you can see the article RIGHT HERE. 


So, the great news is that they not only met their desired Indiegogo target, but in fact well and truly exceeded it! Now it would be wrong of me to claim that not long after he came on board to collaborate with promotion that the target was met, so let’s just say that hopefully we did a little to push things along.  The next bit of good news is that the completion of the VFX post-production work has been completed and the film is ready to be soon shown to the world......exciting, eh?!


Well you can guess how thrilled we we were to be invited by the team this week to help promote the real ease of the first trailer for Guardian........and wow, it’s a doozy! 


So this week’s episode of the 5D Podcast is brought to you by Guardian, the soon to be released Sci-fi short film from Germany. 


Synopsis


When the artificial intelligence in control of a military space station decides to launch an unprovoked, all- out nuclear strike on an enemy nation, it is up to the AI’s creator and a maintenance technician to stop it from annihilating half the globe.

Guardian is not just an action-packed film about a military AI gone haywire, it’s also an emotional story about the maternal relationship between E.L.I. and his creator, Diane Colton, who considers him a surrogate for her own dead son, and uses that bond to help E.L.I. break out of his flawed programming.


Guardian is short film that will set a new high-water mark for what is possible in its format. The finished short film will be released and screened at various festivals this year (2021).



The aim of the crowdfunding campaign had been to finance the quite frankly ambitious plans to make a sci-fi production that would rival any mainstream feature in terms of it’s visual scope. 


We’ll, if the trailer is anything to go by they may well have come pretty close to achieving that aim, because it looks incredible! Apparently the film boats over 350 VFX shots for 30 minutes of runtime which, proportionally, is on par with a fully fi- nanced sci-fi feature or high-end series. In addition, the film’s small but dedicated international VFX team has done a fabulous  amazing job in terms of set designs and 3D interiors, as well as 3D set extensions. It looks sumptuous.


I simply can’t wait for you to see the trailer once it officially launches this coming Tuesday 9th March...... I’ll put the link up here at soon as I’m allowed to.


In the 5DNEWS there’s some chat about another set-back for the much vaunted new craft from SpaceX.....spoiler alert - it blew up. There’s also talk about the trailer & in game footage for the new Aliens: Fireteams video game as well as some reaction to the news that the upcoming Spider-Man movie may possibly be Tom Holland’s last outing as the friendly neighbourhood web-slinger.


In the main section of the show there is an abundance of love for the finale of WandaVision as well as a return to talking about the incredible animated sci-fi series, Final Space.

Ep 141: 5D Pop Culture Podcast - Are you not enraged?



In the 5DNEWS there’s a belated chat (due to the ‘no episode’ last week) about Stuart nerding out to the NASA Perseverance Mars landing a week or so ago. There’s also news about the recent updates to 5D website, which include a newly added sports section as well as a new Dungeons & Dragons section for the upcoming adventures of The Black Table! Yes that’s correct - I will soon be re-entering the world of D & D..... be warned!


Zack brings things more up to date with some Spider-Man talk and the fall-out from the release of the Mortal Kombat trailer.......& apparently some fans are a little upset about the non-appearance of a certain titular character.


If that wasn’t enough co-host Zack has more news of his new 3D modelling YouTube channel and website  - the links for which can be found here:


https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoTT9kdNvbRIR-qrYd87MUQ

https://www.drft3d.com/


In the main section of the show there is an abundance of love for Ep8 of WandaVision as well as a review of sorts from the 2018 movie, Hotel Artemis - and incidentally a film that sounded familiar when it was suggested by co-host Zack that we watch it for this week’s episode. It turns out that the reason for the familiarity was that some mins into it I realised I had indeed seen it before.....but for the life of me couldn’t remember how it ended and so had to watch it all again.

Ep 140: 5D Pop Culture Podcast - No spanking required!

It’s an animation special-type vibe in the main section of the show this week as your hosts Stuart & Zack share thoughts on a couple of newish sci-fi productions, Star Trek: Lower Decks and Final Space.

In the 5DNEWS (once again, after the talk about the weather has finished) there’s chat about the mixed fortunes of some Mandalorian cast members; namely Gina Carano’s social media shenanigans getting her the old ‘heave-ho’ from Lucas Films and Pedro Pascal lined up to play Joel in the TV adaptation of ‘The Last of us’. 


If that wasn’t enough co-host Zack has news of his new 3D modelling YouTube channel and website  - the links for which can be found here:
