Star Wars – Episode V “The Empire Strikes Back” Homage (Title Sequence)

Star Wars – Episode V "The Empire Strikes Back" Homage (Title Sequence) from KROFL on Vimeo.

Check out this beautiful title sequence for “The Empire Strikes Back” by Kurt Rauffer that’s modern yet perfectly set to the tune of “Spectre” by Radiohead recalling Bond movie intros. The song makes me think of that film, which I was disappointed with instead of the magic and joy that is my favorite Star Wars movie. That said, this is beautiful and worth watching over and over again. MTFBWY.

I recently went on a a photo walk/errand run downtown here in Chicago so I thought I should take some photos. If I spent more time downtown, I would definitely shoot more photos. I wish I had more time but these were the best I got. Enjoy!

Doctor Strange – Jimmy Kimmel World Premiere Trailer

Jimmy Kimmel had Benedict Cumberbatch on the show tonight and released this new trailer for his upcoming Doctor Strange movie from Marvel/Disney. I know nothing about the character other than this looks pretty good and reminds me of scenes from such quality films as Inception, The Matrix, and Batman Begins. If you want to learn more about Doctor Strange, check out some history here. I’m definitely interested to see how this fits into the Marvel cinematic universe and the darker international tone of this film. Good stuff. Enjoy!

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY Official Teaser Trailer

Two days after the blu ray release of The Force Awakens, us Star Wars fans are given this teaser trailer for Rogue One. Felicity Jones plays Jin being a real badass and playing an important part of the story. Good to see Mon Mothma make an appearance, an intimidating Imperial general of some importance, Shadow Troopers and a different style of Stormtrooper. It makes me wonder what happens in the story to these Stormtroopers that prevents us from seeing them in the original trilogy. Diego Luna looks like he’ll be playing Biggs, we see Yavin, Forrest Whitaker being his amazing self, and this being a war movie sounds and looks pretty great. We can’t wait to see this one in the theaters! See you there.
