My completed TARDIS Book/VHS/DVD Case! It is not the actual size of the TARDIS, in actuality it is considerably smaller. BUT! It came out great!
Alright Ladies and Gentleman! It is finished! The TARDIS VHS/DVD/Book Case in all its glory. It took over three weeks to make, cost almost two whole paychecks, and a lot of time and hard work. But I got to build this with my Dad and it was A LOT of fun and also a learning and bonding experience. This is something I will have for a very long time and I can look back and remember the great times my Dad and I had while building it.
Almost done but this is what the TARDIS Bookcase looks like at the moment. Have been working on this thing with my dad for over two weeks and I can’t tell you how happy I am that this came out looking so well.
I can’t fault Mr. Smith for trying to do something different, and believe me. This is about as different as you can get when it comes to what people have come to expect from a Kevin Smith film.
RED STATE is a very well written movie, almost to well I would say. If you were expecting to see a movie that makes fun of people like Fred Phelps, and for good measure have a few dick and fart jokes peppered throughout the film. Then you may be disappointed.
The film stands as more of a commentary on how these types of Churches and the people who run or attend them, operate within our society. It also effectively touches on how our Government deals with these types of religious groups.
It is an eye-opening film, and a somewhat shocking one at that. Mostly because it doesn’t candy-coat a damn thing. The cast (most notably Michael Parks and John Goodman) were incredible. Parks portrayal of Abin Cooper in unsettling, scary, and intriguing all at the same time.
I think this is gonna be a love/hate relationship for Smith fans as they see RED STATE. I personally am extremely impressed that Smith put himself out there and put this thing together. But the film (other than some great performances and a very intense and well-written story) just doesn’t do much for me. It’ll be one of those movies that you’ll have to watch a few times to fully grasp and understand what the film and its Director were trying to say.
