TWTWTW: Journo movies and Kickstarter awesomeness

So the yet again delayed weekly web round-up. I like to think of it as more a pleasant surprise when it finally shows up…

Allons-y as a police call box-based time traveller might once have said…

His Girl Friday

His Girl Friday; Great movie, mentioned in a great piece

Journo blockbusters

Great piece on  why reporters love movies about journalism. This piece is very good, I’ve seen almost all of these movies.

Basically it’s a great read because it’s true.

Reason’s not to Dread Dredd

If like me, you grew up reading 2000AD and Judge Dredd, then you probably still harbour more than a few regrets (polite word) about the Stallone movie of Mega City One’s top enforcer. Bleeding Cool give me more hope over this version

Picture of the week

Sad Batman

Gilliam news!

Not concrete but exciting news from Bleeding Cool nonetheless. Terry Gilliam Getting Ready To Reveal Secrets Of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Total recall

This is a great story (via @jackschofield): The Android Head of Philip K. Dick

Mind-blowing movies

BoingBoing have been carrying a series of essays on mind-blowing movies. I loved the ones on Blade Runner, Poltergeist and Ground Hog Day. Go read them all. Some great writing.

Good question

HuffPo asks what is science fiction good for

And talking of science fiction…

My favourite writer, now behind my favourite Kickstarter video. I’m not an avid gamer, but I really want to play this…

Tech News

This is great – Capturing art for digital fabrication.

Great, well argued piece on why  Alan Turing should be on the tenner. It’s basically the least we can do

As an audiophile, this really appeals.

Pretty much my ideal story: Fantastic TEDTalk by Vijay Kumar on the amazing flying robot of the future

Congratulations to makielab!

Meeja news

Interesting piece in NYTimes on who is really winning the battle for the second screen

Don’t Mean To Be Alarmist, But The TV Business May Be Starting To Collapse

Nice blog post on RedBeeMedia – is all TV social by design?
