The Kell Chronicles: Nigel

Okay I was thinking of a title for this and then didn't care.

Tomorrow is the day I get to go home and be with friends and family. Just in case you missed it I've been working in a town called Nigel. Which in my languege is kak boring.

This is not a place you would want to bring up your kids. It's a place that I would retire too.

But don't get me wrong there is things to do but you need a car  and o ye money.
Not like I don't have money it's just I wouldn't waste it here.

I am thankful for my job but not for the area. I would rather have a camera in my hand then a tau(T.A.U.)

Google Post weld heat treatment then you'll understand.

Batman vs. Superman’ to shoot in Toronto

 zack snyder MAN OF STEEL

Superman & Batman Film

While we wait for Warner Bros. to announce an official title, I’ll be referring to 2015′s Batman/Superman movie as Batman vs. Superman. It’s hard to believe that just one year after the release of The Dark Knight Rises I’m writing an article about possible shooting locations for the next Batman movie… but that’s exactly what I’m going to tell you all about right now.
A lot of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel was shot in Canada, and it appears that Batman vs. Superman will be shot there as well. Vancity Buzz reports that production will take place in Toronto so that Warner Bros. will be able to take advantage of Ontarian film tax credits. Exciting news for the Canadian Batman News readers!
If you aren’t in Canada, don’t worry. Batman News will be bringing you the best cover online for Batman vs. Superman. Production is scheduled to start next year so hopefully we get an official title and Batman casting news sometime in 2013. Stay tuned for all the latest!

Mortal Kombat Legacy Season 2 Update


Well guys recently some streaming thing was launched by Machinima (Excuse the spelling) and in it was a clip of a fight scene from Mortal Kombat Legacy Season between so called Arch enemies Scorpion and Sub zero.

Now the thing is a lot of people missed that stream and was wondering what it look like. Well to me it could of been better but it was still good. Sub-zero's powers needed a bit more detail in the effect. Now it was a nice teazer but I actually would prefer the series to get launch now.

O and spoiler alert:
There is a fatality at the end of the fight but the screen goes black and you hear the noises of torture. Look I'm glad they never show it but hopefully when they release it they will. But at least they could of kept sub-zero's death a secret.

Let's see how it is when released. You can't really judge the series cause it was made for youtube so it does not mean the film will be the same.

For more news on this keep checking up on this page or follow me on twitter @thekellleague.

Peace out!!

The House Knows "Review" A Kumaran Naidu Film


Booo! Did you get scared? Guess Not!

You know, as an upcoming director there’s certain things i can’t do.
And I support those who can.

This film is based upon 3 guys who defend the world from demons. The story is very nice but the effects and acting are bad.

Don’t get me wrong, it was a good attempt, epically when you haven’t got a big budget, but really?
I expected better from someone with experience. Now if this film has such cheap effects, imagine his up coming feature highway sheila
Broken promises was a really good film but this is not worth the disc it’s recorded on. But if your in the mood to watch something cause your bored, choose something else.

Mind Your Languege Star Barry Evans A Tribute

Early life

Born in Guildford, Surrey, and abandoned as a baby, Evans was educated at the orphanage boarding schools run by the Shaftesbury Homes, first at Fortescue House School in Twickenham and then at Bisley Boys' School in Bisley, Surrey. His acting ability was recognised at an early age and he often played the leading roles in school plays. Evans attended the Italia Conti Academy and later won a John Gielgud Scholarship to study at the Central School of Speech and Drama.


One of Evans' first television credits was in the soap opera Crossroads in 1964. He subsequently played the lead role in the film Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush (1967), where he was cast as a sex-starved boy who finds it difficult to lose his virginity.
His first major television role was in the sitcom Doctor in the House (1969–70), based on Richard Gordon's series of novels already turned in to a feature film series. Evans starred as the earnest but gullible Michael Upton. Following the show's success, he starred in the sequel to the series, Doctor At Large in 1971. Evans enjoyed working with his fellow actors and later described these as the best years of his life.
In 1975, he had the lead role in Stanley Long's sex comedy Adventures of a Taxi Driver. Despite the film's success, Evans declined to appear in the sequel.
Evans starred as Jeremy Brown in the ITV sitcom Mind Your Language (1977–79), which was a humorous look at an evening class tutor attempting to teach immigrants English. Most of the characters were foreign stereotypes; it was immensely popular, both in the UK and internationally, and especially in the countries the actors portrayed. The series was written by TV scriptwriter Vince Powell, and was adapted for American TV as What a Country! in 1986.
One of Evans' last appearances on British television was in 1982's Emery Presents series Legacy of Murder, alongside Dick Emery.

Later career and death

By the late 1980s, his youthful image was working against him, and he found it difficult to obtain mature acting roles in line with his age. His last role was as Bazzard in the film adaptation of The Mystery of Edwin Drood in 1993. By the late 1990s, he was a minicab driver in Leicestershire, where in 1997 he was found dead aged 53 in his bungalow. The police discovered the actor's body after going to his house to tell him they had recovered his stolen car.[2] The cause of his death has never been confirmed. The Coroner found a blow to Evans' head and an 18-year-old man was arrested but later released without charge. The Coroner also found high levels of alcohol in his system which suggested suicide or accidental death. An open verdict was eventually given.[3]

Len Wiseman Rebooting ‘The Mummy’ for a Summer 2014 Release

Len Wiseman Rebooting The Mummy
It’s easy to forgot that Damon Lindelof was not solely responsible for writing Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, as he worked from an earlier draft penned by Jon Spaihts back when the project was a straightforward Alien prequel. Spaihts, it seems, may have been responsible for the old-fashioned (outdated?) horror tropes in Scott’s film, as similar elements popped up in last year’s critically-panned Darkest Hour (which Spaihts scripted).
Universal has Spaihts writing a reboot for The Mummy, a franchise that started in the 1930s and was rebooted in the late ’90s starring Brendan Fraser (the last installment of which was Tomb of the Dragon Emperor in 2008). Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are producing through their K/O Paper Products, with Len Wiseman (Total Recall) wrapping up a deal to direct.

Spaihts has announced that his intention with the Mummy reboot is “to go back to [this] franchise’s roots in dark, scary source material,” as opposed to the sillier Indiana Jones-esque films featuring Fraser. Pure horror is new territory for Kurtzman and Orci; as the former told Deadline, the reboot will recall the Michael Crichton approach – in stories such as Jurassic Park, Sphere, and The Andromeda Strain, no doubt – as it blends monster and action tropes, while still going for scares:
“We’re reaching into the deep roots of ‘The Mummy,’ which at its beating heart is a horror movie and then an action movie, and putting it into a context that is real and emotional. It’s still a four quadrant film but as a lot of recent movies have proven, audiences are hungry for more than they used to be. You can still have a family movie, an action movie that’s more grounded than these used to be. Without saying too much, we’ve drawn a lot of inspiration from Michael Crichton’s books, and how he ground fantastical sales in modern day science.”
Jurassic Park was directed by Steven Spielberg, who had demonstrated he could terrify viewers of all ages (while also enthralling them) with Jaws almost 20 years earlier. The Mummy, by comparison, is going to be helmed by Len Wiseman, a filmmaker who does well working in the action genre (Live Free or Die Hard), but who has experienced less success with his genre blends – be it the combination of action and horror (Underworld) or action and sci-fi (Total Recall).
Total Recall Featuring Jessica Biel and Colin Farrell

Kurtzman and Orci have already established a working relationship with Wiseman, as he helmed the pilot for their Hawaii Five-0 television series reboot. The positive results from their previous collaboration – Five-0 begins its third season tonight – was, no doubt, part of the motivation behind Wiseman being signed on for a re-invigorating Mummy installment. According to Kurtzman:
“A lot of the work with Len has been about creating mythology, and I remember seeing ‘Underworld’ and finding it a beautiful advancement of the genre. It was presented in this fresh, incredibly cool concept, but it never gave up its reverence for the mythology and that is what inspired us to meet with Len.”
Wiseman’s reboot is being eyed for a Summer 2014 release date, so expect to hear more about The Mummy in the foreseeable future.

Some Inspiring Conditions

It may not be much but it's what I can share.

From last year I have not been feeling well. It seems that my body feels as if I want to collapse but I don't. I've been to many doctors and hospitals but still I felt the same.
But everyday without fail I get out of bed and go to work. For I am someone who has no time to bend to the will of sickness. You could be going through something far worst then I but to tell you the truth, no matter what God is still beside you. And healing will come through His will in such a way that the sickness will never return.

Now I know what you must be thinking..... I mostly focus on film news and stuff. But sometimes we need a little encouragement to get through the day. And love needs to be shown instead of people, always finding faults in each other.

A message to you pastors out there: "Stop fighting with each other and start helping each other. By pointing someones fault just proves that we are not one under Jesus Christ. That's why many falls."


1 Corinthians 1:10 ESV / 120 helpful votes

"I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment".

Thank you

R.I.P.D. Goes 3D, 2 Guns and Kick-Ass Move Release Dates

Universal Pictures has made some changes to its 2013 calendar, particularly where three different comic book adaptations are concerned. Robert Schwentke's R.I.P.D. will retain its July 19 release date, but will now be released in 3D. Baltasar Kormakur's 2 Guns will move two weeks earlier, from August 16 to August 2. Jeff Wadlow's Kick-Ass 2, finally, will move from June 28 to August 16.

R.I.P.D. stars Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds. The supernatural action-adventure also features Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker and Stephanie Szostak and is based on the Dark Horse comic. R.I.P.D. is produced by Neal H. Moritz, Mike Richardson and Michael Fottrell.

2 Guns stars Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, James Marsden, Fred Ward and Edward James Olmos. It is is produced by Marc Platt, Randall Emmett, George Furla, Adam Siegel, Jeffrey Stott, Ross Richie, Andrew Cosby and Norton Herrick and is based on the BOOM! Studios title. The new date puts it head to head with two other comic book-to-screen projects, 300: Rise of an Empire and RED 2 as well at the limited release of James Ponsoldt's indie drama The Spectacular Now.

Kick-Ass 2, finally, has Aaron Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse reprising their roles from 2010’s Kick-Ass. Based on the comic by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr., the sequel co-stars Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo and Donald Faison. It is produced by Matthew Vaughn, Tarquin Pack, Adam Bohling, David Reid and Brad Pitt.

Kick-Ass 2's new release has it opening opposite Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and The To-Do List.

The Hobbit: There and Back Again Moves to December 2014

Originally planned for release on July 18, 2014, New Line Cinema and MGM have moved the theatrical release of The Hobbit: There and Back Again to December 17, 2014.

Directed by Peter Jackson, the film is the third and final chapter of his J.R.R. Tolkien adaptation, the first part of which, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, hit theaters late last year. The second, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, is scheduled to arrive on December 13th of this year.

The new date allows for the trilogy to maintain its consistent December releases and puts it away from Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past in July. December 17 has The Hobbit: There and Back Again arriving just two days before Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment's Despicable Me spinoff, Minions and Brad Bird's mysterious Tomorrowland.

Update will be updating there theme soon. Keep you up to date!

Mzansi Magic Racist

Black Productions Only 

South Africa suppose to be a rainbow nation, with all benefiting from the same opportunity. But it seems that the Indian and colored nation in south africa will suffer the most. A channel known as Mzansi Magic on a satellite network known as DSTV as told a fellow film maker the following:

"Got an official word from Mzansi Magic, that our type of films, meaning local Indian/Colored films are not their type of films that they want to show on their channel."

So now regarding series and films, it seems that we are no longer needed on television networks like Mzansi. It seems that we are no longer welcomed in South Africa.

The Pool Day by The Kell League

Today was a awesome day with my two friends. We decide since it was hot to go to the pool, and so we relaxed in the cooling of the waters of the pool.

Then all of a sudden we saw two of the most beautiful coloured girls that we haven't seen before. So our concentration was on them. Don't get me wrong, all women are beautiful but these two were exceptional.

So while relaxing in the pool my friend decides to tell us a story about a girl that he pursued on twitter. After a while he decided no, she doesn't seem interested so he told her, "Let's face facts, you will never get me, so better not to pursue this." After my friend said that now the girl wants him now! Strange how things turn out!

The Final Cut (A Street Fighter Written Story)

Early in the morning I uploaded to YouTube my first episode of Street Fighter Vengeance based on the capcom games, "Street Fighter."

Now the first comment I got was, "It doesn't feel like Street Fighter." Of cause it doesn't feel like Street Fighter because I wanted something different. When you go on Youtube and search street fighter you find alot of fan films that always has the same element, Ryu Vs Ken, except for Street Fighter X Tekken The Devil Within.

So me, with a camera, decides to do a short fan film with a story. To my surprise I start receiving wats app messengers, emails and even blogs asking, when's the next episode. Now me, I wasn't planning a series, but now it looks like it needs one.

I am a big fan and look forward to Assassin's Fist, but in the mean while, I will continue on my own journey.
Watch the street fighter episode @ :
