True Blood in 60 Seconds : Crazy and Creative Kids

Written on August 25, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

HBO's True Blood was explained and evaluated in 60 seconds. How? Ask Babelgum.

The crazy and insanely awesome crew of Babelgum has found their next “60 seconds” series. Guess what?

Babelgum had a full history of successful interpretations of pop culture. From the big hit which was showcased last spring, “Glee in 60 Seconds” video. And now comes “True Blood in 60 Seconds”. How creative can this group can be? The kids were also re-enacting dialogs from The Hills, Jersey Shore and even American Revolution.

Babelgum managed to show what True Blood’s essence is. The normal schemes were hook ups, make outs, sex and a lot of biting. And it not some smooth and sexy blood sucking scenes but hardcore vampire actions. It is an interpretation to the discrimination and racism in the modern society.

The over all package is really out of this world and creative. It is more like a parody of our favorite TV show.

Let us know how you feel about the video. Here:

Epix will Provide Movie Stream for Netflix

Written on August 10, 2010 by Japhet Writ

In case Netflix and Epix agrees, online users will soon enjoy movie stream for the next five years. Flicks from Paramount, MGM and Lionsgate will soon be provided by Epix on Netflix.

Netflix is making a billion dollar deal with Epix to have the rights to stream freshly released movies from Lionsgate, MGM and Paramount. According to The Los Angeles Times, the deal has been discussed for months now, but still facing some complications. One of these is the fact that cable providers is less likely to carry Epix. However, they can do well in betting on online media instead of traditional cable. The LA Times claims that the deal will last for five years should it push through.

The agreement can help Epix break even on 2011 and cling to movie studio’s option to sell and rent their films on iTunes — even as they’re showing on Epix. This is the type of option that HBO, a competing movie channel, does not provide to its partners. Whether or not all titles available on Epix will also be on Netflix is not yet clear. Iron Man, Star Trek, Saw VI, The Cove and Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark are the films currently on Epix.
