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.

Re: Neill Blomkamp Oats Studios short films (2017)

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.
