There are guilty pleasures and then there are Uwe Boll movies. Notwithstanding, I will argue to the end of my days how fricking bat-shit awesome BLOODRAYNE is.
Yeah, twenty years on, the world is not really all that amazing. We have regressed years in technology, and people are so focused on this battle of good vs. evil thing that happened just recently it’s like living under a theocracy. I might call it the ‘Taliban of the good’ although see in our timeline, the Taliban never existed, because Captain Trips took out most of the world in 1985.
With the gala screening of BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS, support for the Austin School of Film's free screenwriting workshop with writer Matt Lohr, an extra full day of programming, and SIX parties this year, the Other Worlds Austin team has fully launched into the maelstrom of bringing fabulous content and memorable experiences to our audience.

Why do I groan when I hear people talking about it, lavishing it with praise? Because I hold Star Wars to a higher standard than any other series, and because J.J. Abrams and his team didn’t. This new film suffered from lazy, repetitious storytelling, a disregard for the original trilogy, and a whole mess of missed opportunities.
