Neill Blomkamp's Changing the Game with Oats Studios


Neill Blomkamp is the director who brought us District 9, Elysium and Chappie. After racking up a strong collection of sci-fi films, he's decided to take his film talent to new levels of creativity, passion and independence with Oats Studios, a film collective that is creating short films that give Blomkamp a chance to extrapolate his ideas by fleshing them out. By releasing short films, he's getting a chance to garner feedback and financial support from fans around the world.

The broader idea is that these shorts will eventually become films or TV series, making Oats Studios a fan-funded idea incubator in action. So far, he's released Rakka Vol. 1, Firebase Vol. 1 and Zygote Vol. 1, which you can watch below. Rakka takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where an alien race is using mind control to suppress the surviving human race and Firebase is set in 1970s Vietnam as strange forces create havoc among the stationed troops. Zygote echoes the frozen facility horror of The Thing with spine-chilling style. Be warned, viewer discretion is advised as these films are graphic and not for sensitive viewers.

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: Into The Wild


Spling's Pick of the Week - Into the Wild at Kirstenbosch

INTO THE WILD @ KIRSTENBOSCH (26 Apr)

Sean Penn directed the story of Christopher McCandless, a college student whose wanderlust took him on a cross-country runaway adventure. Into the Wild's a tragic, nostalgic and haunting tale of ideals and survival and who can forget the enigmatic Emile Hirsch, a heartfelt Hal Holbrook and Eddie Vedder's on-the-road soundtrack? This is a deeply affecting and powerful adaptation of a true story, which captures the life-and-times and appeals to everyone's sense of wanderlust. Watching Into the Wild in the great outdoors will add a level of authenticity to the whole experience.

This nostalgic story of wanderlust is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: Her


Spling's Pick of the Week - Her at V&A Waterfront

HER @ V&A WATERFRONT (20 Apr)

Her's authentic, playful and creative perspective is all thanks to the mind of Spike Jonze. He brings us a slice-of-life from the future, presenting a very possible trajectory and examining it from the inside out. It's a wonderful, thought-provoking and smart film that connects with us in all the disconnectedness and frailty of life, examining what it means to be human and serving up an original film experience, powered home by a typically strong performance from Joaquin Phoenix.

This quirky, unconventional and futuristic love story is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: The NeverEnding Story


Spling's Pick of the Week - The Neverending Story at Kelvin Grove

THE NEVERENDING STORY @ KELVIN GROVE (16 Apr)

The NeverEnding Story may be slightly dated in terms of visual effects and make up, but still holds up today with Wolfgang Petersen's eternal promise of imagination and faraway kingdoms. The magical tale holds its own charm with visual effects that carry real presence as the power of reading is laced into a vivid story that continues to enthrall viewers decades later...

The iconic and memorable The NeverEnding Story leaves a slew of memories... from a fascinating rock-eating rock giant, a sorrowful marsh, a delightful luck dragon, an epic desert crossing and the dreaded nothingness. It's wonderful to be immersed in this world of make-believe, so much so that you'll be forgiven for bopping to Limahl's The NeverEnding Story theme song as the credits roll.

This magical whirlwind adventure is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
