The second comes by way of Thomas Dolans’s own YouTube channel, now host to a new tribute video made in the wake of the sudden death of stuntman and traceur Basillio Quiet Montilla who died during a training accident late last month. A native New Yorker hailing from the Bronx, he is loved and lived on by many who have known him as a kind, generous and humble person who loved what he did and had a heartfelt and lasting impact on those who knew him closest.
The fourth (hat tip to Twitchfilm) is a resurrected animated proof-of-concept for a live-action rendering of the animated classic, Ninja Scroll. Dracula Untold helmer Gary Shore directed the pitch with action sequences by 87 Eleven and animation by The Third Floor, and with Warner Bros. and Appian Way in possession of the rights as of 2008, and there’s no telling when a live-action take will come to pass although I personally recommend someone more suited for handling an anime property to direct should this come to pass. Just my opinion.
RWBY series creator Monty Oum may be gone, though his legacy is far opposite. The third season is here with our favorite quartet of fighting femmes from Beacon Academy as they compete to be the best in a world where supernatural evil still looms. The show is a multi-award winning feat and for reasons none other than what you simply need to see for yourself in case you’re new to this phenomenon. And if you are, then kudos for making it this far. Enter the world of RWBY, and make sure to prioritize the playlist to catch up!
And finally, we can stop all the jive waitin’, because it’s time for a Film Combat Syndicate Exclusive! And like a haymaker to the funny bone in your jaw, creative duo Brett Stillo and Jose Montesinos are back with a second episode of the action comedy webseries, Sensitive 70’s Turtleneck Tough Guys. Actress Jessica Etheridge joins star and director Montesinos as they re-live a bygone era that redefined and evolved a lot for its time, including duty, love and relationships…and most importantly, a man’s sensitive side, and ain’t nothin’ wrong with that…
So RESPECT THE TURTLENECK, and enjoy!
