Saw a few of us are watching these, new one came out yesterday with Sharlto Copley as god :lol: Funny (but dark) little watch.

Firebase is a must for anyone new to these.

I shall be watching the latest one on my lunchbreak today, can't wait.

Also echo the Firebase sentiments, it was superb.

Loved that (really short) short, Sharlto makes a great God.

Shame it wasn't a few minutes longer, would liked to have seen where that could have gone.

You missed one:


Haven't liked the 3 minute ones as much, thought the God one quite unoriginal unlike the longer films. Firebase and Rakka are quite excellent though.

The Cooking With Bill shorts are so strawberry floated up. A bit predictable, but still horrifying. I bet BlompKamp could make a fantastic SCP movie/shorts based upon some of the more interesting/disturbing SCP entries.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

That was incredible.

Very reminiscent of The thing but that's not a bad thing.

New one. Seems to be a test run for full CGI films but, er, it looks pretty awful. I like the content though!

Nice idea but yeah the CGI was atrocious. I guess budgets can only stretch so far.

The only obvious bit of CGI was the explosion at the end, I'm struggling to see any other terrible CGI in there at all.

I didn't actually, at least not the first time I watched it.

Watched it again in fullscreen and I still didn't immediately realise that it was entirely CGI, probably because of the grain filter and other post processing effects going on.

Edit: was watching it in 420p, switched to 1080p and it was immediately obvious.
