HTG

Love movies? Ever wish you could be a Hollywood Producer? Hollywood The Game is a Hollywood & Filmmaking Simulation Game and Filmmaking Community that is free to players, who can take on the roles of studio heads, producers, critics, journalists, marketing agents, and creative companies to name a few.

The backbone of the game emphasizes the producer/writer career, in which a player has the chance to write, cast, market (make posters, trailers, ads, etc. for your film), and produce their own virtual films. The film (short script or story) is then released into HTG theaters, getting reviews and feedback from the rest of players, as well as receiving money from the HTG box-office. This money can be used to buy houses, cars, production offices, and so much more! Everything in this game is simulated, including the films (i.e., they’re not real films; just scripts, summaries, short stories, etc.), money, possessions, posters, and ad campaigns. Overall, the game is a completely free, fun way to hone your screenwriting skills while having fun at the same time.

You can access the site by clicking on the image at the top of the post, or by clicking on this link. Hope to see you in Hollywood The Game.

Suitable for Murder

We focus a lot on free horror movies (because good or bad, they are always fun), but today we thought it would be nice to throw in a crime thriller/indie noir into the mix. From Indie Rights Movies we have Suitable for Murder, from director Fred P. Watkins (Revenge Bites, Bikini Detectives) and starring Ali Faulkner, Jackson Bostwick, Morgana Shaw, and Nate Rubin.

Description (spoilers): Joe Mondragon, a veteran cop who gets things done, forms an unlikely partnership with Samantha Baines. She is attached to Police Intelligence Division and feels more comfortable handling a computer than a gun. Samantha’s computer skills are needed to help hack into and track two serial killers who get their victims from Internet Chat Rooms. The plan goes horribly wrong and in a fire fight between Samantha and Joe, and the two killers, Joe is killed when Samantha is unable to make herself fire her weapon at the two serial killers. Samantha feels guilty and responsible. With the help of her new friend Mimi, and the Head of Homicide, Samantha reinvents herself and avenges Joe after a relentless chase of the killers.

You can check out Suitable for Murder free on YouTube and Snag Films.

Assassin's Creed Movie

Film Spotlight: Assassin’s Creed
Director: Justin Kurzel
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Michael K Williams, Jeremy Irons and Brendan Gleeson.
Plot: The Assassin’s Creed movie follows a character by the name of Callum Lynch who, through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, is able to experience the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.

Thoughts: Let me start off by saying I am a HUGE fan of the Assassin’s Creed games. Lately they have sort of regressed with the move to next gen; Unity had to deal with some bad pre-release buzz due to a graphics glitch. Syndicate was a bit disjointed in its missions and gameplay. I enjoyed both but they never came close to how good Black Flag was. Fans of the game have long thought that the series is probably more suited than any other video game to be adapted into a film. The view of videos games not getting great adaptions might be broken with Assassin’s Creed. First of all Ubisoft who make the game set up their own production company to make sure they get the film right. Secondly they have gathered some great talent in the casting and hiring of the director and finally and perhaps most crucial is they decided not to adapt any of the games, instead they have gone for an original story but it is still set in the same universe as the games. That is something which I thought Warcraft got wrong this year, adapting a story from the games instead of creating one.

Now there is still a chance that it might not work but from the trailers that have been released the footage looks very promising. They have captured the essence of the games from the parkour running, the combat and that final shot from the trailer of the iconic leap of faith. Even the modern day sequences of Fassbender’s Callum Lynch inside an Abstergo facility. The redesigned Animus which is the tool that allows the present day Lynch to access his genetic memory of his ancestors looks pretty bad ass. I expect there will be some cool little mentions and Easter eggs in reference to games. I am pretty hopeful this will break the trend of bad video game movies and hope it will kick start a new era in video game movies.

Assassin’s Creed is out December 21st, 2016.
