Neill Blomkamp Oats Studios short films (2017)

Neill Blomkamp has been doing some experimental short films through Oats Studios. This guy has the talent. I'd like to see him take another crack at a franchise film since his Alien flick died by the hands of Ridley. I think he's a perfect fit for the Gears of War movie.

Rakka

Have not watched these yet. District 9 was great, Elysium sucked, and Chappie was mediocre.

They should make a movie or a series out of Rakka. It was very well done. Firebase was interesting but not as good.

Rakka looked awesome. Give me some more of that.

Watched both of these earlier today.

Like others, I felt like Rakka was the better of the two films, though both films are well shot with a wealth of great ideas.

I liked how he recreated the stock footage in Firebase.

"God: Serengeti" was great. Would love to see more "Raqqa" too.

Adam: the Mirror just dropped. Seems to be a showcase for some program called Unity.

I really enjoyed the Adam: The Mirror Short. Wish it was longer!

They have decided to make Firebase as a feature film. They want to use crowdfunding. No rewards, though.

"Firebase" was my least favorite. Maybe we'll someday get the full-length "Cooking With Bill" that we deserve.

Re: Neill Blomkamp Oats Studios short films (2017)

Fire base was amazing. It’s sort of the prologue to a film about a super soldier being created to fight a super powerful superhuman thing. I’m not sure the actual battle will live up to that setup however.
