The End of Day

Wild Wild West Music Video

The funny part of this video… and not really funny ha-ha… is that it’s a little movie in and of itself. The only thing missing is Artemis Gordon… Don’t get me wrong… the visuals here are stunning… and I really like a lot of what I see. I’ve often said that I think the film […]

Review: The Warrior’s Way

I wonder HOW I didn’t see this in the theater!? While the focus of it is a Western/Martial Arts film, there was an unmistakeable nod to Steampunk Aesthetic in the look.
