The trailer for the second part of The Hobbit is now out – seems to take a bit of a detour from the books, but we’ll see more when it comes out.

I went to school during the 80s, so as a result I heard a fair bit of Metal – I even have a collection of it still on my old cassettes, which haven’t been played for years.

Yesterday I came across this – Doctor Who Meets Metal.

Needless to say I was deeply impressed – one of my favourite TV shows with the music of it done in metal style.

Took a further look at the guy doing it, and he has over 100 videos of various metalised versions of TV shows, movies, games and of course other forms of music.

Some of my other favourites so far are Skyrim, Lord of the Rings and BBC Sherlock.

The following is a short animated film, around 9 minutes in length, about a pair of unlikely adventurers. It is very much in the heroic fantasy style of adventuring (think Conan) than the high fantasy style.

There is also a kickstarter project to turn it into a series.

For such a short film, it packs quite a tale into it.

I saw the following video yesterday, a mash up of two of my favourite shows – Castle and Firefly.  (Both, oddly, starring Nathan Fillion.)

It takes the theme and style of Firefly and uses the cast of Castle.  And its great.

March 30 sees the return of The Doctor, with the second half of the current season of Doctor Who

To whet our appetites, a new trailer has been released.

Now this is rather awesome.

The Grand Final of the Aussie rules footy season is almost upon us, one of the oldest sporting competitions in the world. As a reminder of just how old it is, recently footage has been discovered of it being played – from 1911. And it is actually only the fifth oldest footage known to exist.

One thing of interest is to see what the people in the crowd are wearing – women in their big hats and men in their three piece suits. It was a different time indeed.
