The VelociPastor

Some of you will be interested to know that a very, very, very low budget movie called VelociPastor exists.
The plot summary:
“After losing his parents, a priest travels to China, where he inherits a mysterious ability that allows him to turn into a dinosaur. At first horrified by this new power, a hooker convinces him to use it to fight crime. And ninjas.”
Yep, a priest who becomes a were-dinosaur and fights evil.
Originally a film-student project trailer, it became a micro-budget movie.
The director originally had thoughts of it being some sort of commentary about the Catholic Church, but eventually dropped those pretensions, arriving at the the rationale that
“The movie is made to be fun, and anybody looking for deeper meaning in the man-turns-into-a-dinosaur genre is probably on a fool’s errand.”
Probably.

I have no intention of watching it, and you probably know if you have an interest in this sort of thing.
If you don’t, then don’t watch the trailer below.

Most pastors do not openly fantasise about becoming dinosaurs and killing problem people, if you were worried.

See Hunt For The Wilderpeople

It’s on NITV tonight.

But I’m going to watch the Blu-ray sometime soon as well.

It’s that good.

Ricky town. Population… Ricky.

The Honest Trailer For Avengers Endgame

The Honest Trailer for Avengers Endgame only goes for seven minutes, so it struggles to point out every plot-hole and inconsistent quirk in the movie.
After all, Endgame ran three hours and capped off twenty-one previous movies.
It could have been a very, very long trailer if they’d tried to do them all.

I’m still going to but a copy and watch it when it comes out as a take-home disc, though.

It’s For A Good Cause

I’m seeing my first ever Fast And Furious movie tonight as a part of a fundraiser session for a local netball club.

It looked interesting, in any case.

Maybe I’ll have to take a look at the others.

The Faces Behind The Voices (via Great Big Story)

This video from Great Big Story compiles four segments featuring voice actors Charles Martinet, Tara Strong, Redd Pepper, and Jim Cummings. You may not know the names, but you’ll recognise the voices if you’ve played Mario, watched Raven in Teen Titans, listened to a movie trailer, or seen a screen version of Winnie the Pooh. I’ve featured the Tara Strong section of this before, but it’s all very entertaining.
