Paper Microbes by Rogan Brown

I previously blogged about Rogan Brown's biological paper cuts, and now he has completed a new series of intricately cut paper microbes. Similar to the small scale works of Klari Reis' The Daily Dish, the lack of colour draws focus to light and dark and draws very much from Brown's previous larger scale pieces.

Intricate Chinese Rice Paper Cuts by Bovey Lee


For the past 10 years, Chinese artist Bovey Lee creates wonderfully intricate paper cuts on a single piece of Chinese rice paper, exploring a range of themes.

He says: "My narrative-based cut paper explores the tension between man and the environment in the context of power, sacrifice, and survival. These three “motivators,” as I call them, drive all our desires and behaviors toward one another and the environment. We live in a time when we overdo everything from technology to urbanization to consumption. My recent work is informed by our precarious relationship with nature in the twenty-first century, i.e., what we do to the environment with our super machines and technologies and what nature does back to us in reaction."

'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' Film Trailer Preview

Previously titled 'There and Back Again' (much preferred), the final chapter to 'The Hobbit' saga has a full length trailer!

The new name conveys the Lord of the Rings-esque battle sequence which will no doubt conclude the movie in a truly huge way. Bilbo Baggins and the Dwarves must enlist the help of the elves in order to triumph over the dark forces.

The movie will be out by Christmas. Check out the trailer below:

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1' Film Trailer Preview

Despite several propaganda teasers from President Snow recently, a longer teaser from District 13 has been released, showing Katniss after the events of 'Catching Fire'.

With an all star cast, the fight between the districts and the Capitol begins in part 1 of Mockingjay. Just how they tie this up and flow into the fourth movie we'll have to wait and see. The full length trailer of the hottest franchise of recent years will be even more anticipated.

The movie will be released in November. Check out the trailer below:

'Non-Stop' Film Review

Air marshall Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) is threatened on a transatlantic flight with text messages instructing him to arrange for $150 million to be transferred to an offshore account or someone on the flight will die. With everyone on board a suspect, Bill must be careful in who he trusts.

The film was quick to set up and put in place suspects that you watch carefully as the film pans out. The first thing to notice is the presentation of technology and the text messages that give it a strong visual style. Tension grips you right from the start and the claustrophobia of the plane is portrayed effectively.

'The Other Woman' Film Review

Carly (Cameron Diaz) discovers that her boyfriend Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) has a wife when she shows up at his house to surprise him. Just as she is about to forget about the whole thing, Mark's wife Kate (Leslie Mann) show up at her office and the two begin a very unlikely friendship.

Slow starting, a third of the movie chronicles the beginning of Carly and Kate's friendship, and isn't until when they start plotting their revenge that the movie picks up pace. With a predictable ending, the thrill is getting to that point, but 'The Other Woman' fails to induce laughs in a natural way. Scenarios are forced and some of the jokes are cringe-worthy.
