Waltz with Bashir wins!

Waltz with Bashir, Ari Folman’s animated documentary about the 1982 war in Lebanon, won the Golden Globe for best Best Foreign Language Film! I still have to see this film, very excited to see Asaf Hanuka’s illustrations animated.

  • anyone seen this?

  • Kunal and I watched this at Granville 7 during the festival… We couldnt say a word for a few hours afterwards. I’ve never seen a theater so quiet right after the show. powerful powerful film…

  • aaa! i want to see this too, though i have no clue where it’s showing!

    • yea i really want to see it on the big screen

  • looks so sweet. can’t wait to see this.

  • hey there, I must correct you about the illustrator of the film, It’s true that Asaf Hanuka was part of the illustrators of the film, BUT the illustration were made by David Polonsky and he recruit Asaf to the project because of his quality and his style.

  • what i said originally was i am excited to see Asaf’s illustrations animated – i realise he was only one of many illustrators and he wasn’t an animator, i just like his style and was excited to see his work animated. thanks for the additional info though.

  • saw it, totally badass animation style, film was right along the lines of persepolis

  • Miflé

    Uhh I see that film and I very like it!! Good and nice work, respect!!

Pokémon Go: Complete Pokédex Silhouette Reference Chart

Download: The Complete Pokédex Character Reference Chart

 

Pokémon Go has taking over my free time the past couple weeks, and it’s weird because I never watched the show and don’t play games on my phone. Is anyone else in the same boat?

I read about the guy who apparently found all the available Pokémon but I couldn’t find an image of all the revealed characters. I was also surprised that it was so difficult to dig up an entire chart of all the Pokémon silhouettes to be able to know whether something close to you is worth searching for. Any longtime fans of Pokémon will already be able to recognize the silhouettes but I’m not so a chart like this is kinda crucial! Consider this a tool for anyone new to show or the game.

The image above is essentially what it looks like to complete your entire Pokédex! This image above is the entire chart with all the characters revealed and below is the full chart as silhouettes (with and without titles). Full credit goes to Reddit user Jadael for posting the images here.

 

Essential Pokémon Go resources:

The Silph Road – this subreddit aims to be the largest online community of Pokémon Go users offering lots of findings.

Lvl 22 Player Giving Small Tips of Advice – this post on Reddit really answers every question you will have about the game and specific advice things like quickly levelling up.

Pokémon Go IV (Individual Values) Calculator – if you want to take the game to the nerdiest level possible, use the Google Doc linked here to accurately calculate if you should continue powering up your Pokémon or transfer it and move on.

 

Maybe I’m a huge nerd for liking this game but I can’t remember the last time I walked around my city and struck up as many conversations (albeit very nerdy conversations) with so many complete strangers of all ages. So far I’ve found 67 Pokémon and I’m level 17. Any other Booooooom readers playing?
