Turtles, Pizzas & Robots – Movie Review for TMNT

Movie watchers, let’s stop complaining about Michael Bay’s movie versions of our childhood cartoons. I’m not a full out fan of Michael Bay but movies are just movies. We’re here to escape our realities and watch crazy stuff on the big screen. With that in mind, I didn’t have much of an expectation for TMNT. What can you say, they are teenage mutant ninja turtles! Come on now, NINJA TURTLES. I wasn’t looking for Oscar material. I had the same low to no expectations for all the other action movies rolling out this summer. Surprisingly, I liked it.

As a video producer, I felt the camera didn’t have to sway so much during the actions sequences. It was very dizzying, just like all his other movies. You miss a lot, if you have to turn away to regain your barrings. The movie was a little over an hour and half. Very short for today’s standards. Megan Fox portrayed a good April O’Neil. There was plenty of funny parts throughout the movie to keep me laughing, especially with Michelangelo (in the movie referred to as Mikey).

To that end, my final opinion: It was OK

Side joke, this is really Shrek vs Transformers.

Thanks,

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians_of_the_GalaxySorry I am not a writer, but I just wanted to share my thoughts on the movie.

Marvel does it again, this time with Guardians of the Galaxy. Since the first trailer was released I was hooked and by the second trailer I was sold that this will be a great movie. So, yep walked out the theater with a big smile, because it met all my expectations and more. Truthfully I didn’t know who Chris Pratt was until this movie and he delivered, playing a amazing Star-Lord. While he was amazing the other cast filled in perfectly too, the chemistry between them was hilarious, silly, fun, and satisfying to watch on the big screen. This movie has a lot of funny moments, it has a great pace, and the amount of action is on point.

  • VFX 9/10: I try to stay away from 3-D most of the time, but I am so glad I saw this movie in 3-D because the galaxy/world, this Marvel team put together did a perfect job of getting you truly immersed and it’s not painful for the eyes.
  • Cast 9/10: Yes, even with Dave Batista playing Drax the destroyer.
  • Music/ Soundtrack 10/10: Who doesn’t love great oldies, mixed in with fun space action in a beautiful made galaxy, Amazing!
  • Story 9/10: Cant wait for part 2

Well, this is just a random post/blog, I just wanted to share some of my thoughts about the movie. Not really trying to get too much in depth.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Thank You,

Panthong Manichanh.

2013 Quarter 1, Done! What’s Next?

Canon 5D Mark III

We were pretty busy this last quarter and some of the work is trickling into this quarter. One thing we can definitely check off our “to do” list is new equipment purchase. Canon 5D Mark III. Yes, there was a lot of talk about the Panasonic Lumix, but we decided to go with the Mark III instead and are very pleased. We also got the 85 mm lens and a wide angle lens which will bump up the cinematic quality of our work. With this new equipment we’re able to offer more stunning images for music videos, weddings, movies, you name it. Very pleased!

New apparel and clothing line “Everyday Focus” finally is coming to fruition. The logo is not quite complete, but we have the concept down. Once this is done, we’ll launch our Triple M Designz Webstore. You’ll be able to buy directly from our secure website. We’ll most likely start with t-shirts and hoodies, but won’t limit it to just clothing. Good stuff. Of course, schwag too because we gotta give back to the people who have been supporting us.

We are very happy with our progress this year. We’ll keep you all posted with upcoming projects. Thanks for all the support!

Panasonic Lumix GH3 giving the 5D a run for it’s money

panasonic lumix gh3We’re looking forward to getting our hands on the Lumix GH3. The price retails about $1300 for the body, not too shabby compared to what a good camera goes for nowadays. This allows more budget for super crazy lenses! Based on reviews we have seen, it is comparable to the Canon 5D and has exceeded most peoples’ expectations. Most videographers and photographers are usually unwilling to try something different. Especially when the investment into existing equipment leans more towards… the higher thousands of dollars and was most likely accumulated over years. Like the saying goes, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” But we have seen faithful Canon users convert over to Lumix and only have good things to say about it.

If anyone else cares, here are some of the features:

  • Professional HD Video up to 1080/60p in H.264 format
  • Sealed magnesium-alloy body helps the camera withstand the rigors of professional use.
  • Full Area High-Speed AF System for fast shooting and focus in both still and video modes
  • Dual-OLED Displays are used for both the Live View Finder and the rear monitor and feature 100% coverage, exhibits virtually no perceptible lag time and ensures the subject is shown with natural coloring.
