It’s appropriate that the act of illusion plays such a central role in Inferno, for the film itself spends a lot of time masquerading as though it’s something loftier than a schlocky B-movie thriller. It’s the third in the Tom Hanks-starring, Ron Howard-directed series based on the Robert Langdon novels written by Dan Brown. The first two — The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons — left much to be desired. This one emerges as a marked improvement, though that’s not saying a whole lot.
Simply put, it’s the lightest and shortest of the bunch. Inferno moves at a brisk pace, thanks in no small part to a story device that has Langdon (Hanks) literally learning what’s going on while the audience does. Awoken by young doctor Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) in Florence, Italy, the esteemed “symbologist” finds himself in a hospital with a severe head wound and no recollection of the last 48 hours. In no time, people are trying to kill him as he and the doctor attempt to solve a puzzle hidden inside a biotube that everybody’s after. The mystery concerns Italian poet Dante Alighieri, his epic Divine Comedy, and the poem’s depiction of hell.
I can finally post some stuff from Teeth, now that Sundance Film Festival has come to a close. Teeth is an animated short film created by Holbrooks, currently making the film festival rounds. I was brought on to design and paint the backgrounds. Here are a few of my favorite scenes. You can watch the trailer here!
Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood, Draco Malfoy, Sirius Black, Tom Riddle.
(( OOC: Since I’m trying to base this blog off of my version of Harry, (the version I had created in my mind before the movies came out.) I figured it might be fun to recreate a few other characters. ;) The movies were so brilliantly cast that there weren’t a lot of differences between the versions of the characters I had created in my head and the live-action cast, but this was definitely fun. ))
