Black Lightning: Tobias's Revenge Part 2 Movie Review

Above Photo: New Poster for Black Lightning: Tobias's Revenge Part 2


Thanks to producer Choice Skinner and his group for an early look at the new short film Black Lightning Tobias's Revenge Part 2 ahead of it's debut screening at Urban Action Showcase and the online release November 14th. Existing in the shadows of the DC universe, Black Lightning is a spirited fan film, that follows the adventures of the title character, and also introduces a few new characters.

The 19 minute short film has some really cool action sequences, coupled with amazing costuming and weaponry. Time was taken to get the dialogue to be forceful and entertaining. This is part two and expounds on the set up taken in part one. Watch out for the introduction of Lady Shiva. Sexy siren Sachiko Ishida adds an air of sultry bad assery to the production. The film has it's premiere at the Urban Action Showcase and then will be unleashed online November 14th. Very good fan film effort and hope to see some original material from the team soon, Black Lightning: Tobias's Revenge PT 2 rates a 7 out of 10.

Art Camacho: A Filmmaker's Journey Book Review



Director and action coordinator Art Camacho has been a mainstay in the marital arts world for several decades, recently however, with the release of The Chemist (Assassin X) Art's name has been mentioned more as a talented filmmaker. Art has had his share of set backs in his career path, but manages to stay above the fray and keep positive. His first book, 'A Filmmaker's Journey is an honest, and realistic account of the trials and tribulations of working on independent films, and detailed stories from his humble background.

A Filmmaker's Journey is divided into 18 chapters and at 160 pages is a smooth afternoon read, yet I found myself going back and revisiting several chapters, as Art is keen on realistic advice without being preachy. Art is not afraid to pull the curtain back on his own failures and perhaps allow his own journey help others be better at theirs. Art is brutally honest, yet his refreshing take on making films and learning along the way. Chapter 6 - Confronting My Failures, is Art's revelation of the various difficulties he had in school and including the actress on his film not being able to memorize her lines, nor read her cue cards. What is nice is the fact that Art never dwells on the subject of negativity nor the people involved, he chalks it up to a learning experience. Listen and Learn and Rising Above the Negativity, are two chapters that really hit home for me and also I am sure will resonate loudly to those who have had to deal with the obligatory yet ever present haters in the business. Again, Art keeps it respectful, and rather than being mired in the sadness of things out of his control he offers hope and solutions to things he can change.

The end of the book offers advice to those who wish to be filmmakers. Art Is encouraging, yet unapologetic to those not willing to take the time, to learn and hone their craft. Art is quick with examples and provides some cool photos as well from his various films.

Overall, A Filmmaker's Journey is a great read, a must for action fans and is currently going into the second printing, visit http://martialartsmuseum.com/ for more information as The Martial Arts History Museum and Michael Matsuda are the publishers.

Actress Nardia Noon Spotlight – Thailand! A Dan's Movie Report Exclusive!



Greetings and thank you to all for the past 8 yrs of support of my personal Dan's Movie Report journey in films. My site is not a collaboration but a amalgamation of my own endeavors, and is of course open to all styles of film and TV shows, even music! One of the biggest thrills I have is when a new person comes in and says hey, I like what you are doing and want to be a part of it, wanting in on the action!



Nardia is ready for the action! Thailand based, she was in the film Beyond Return starring Ron Smoorenburg and Tanja Keller.

Nardia has been modeling since 2011. She is contracted by a private agencie for work in Malaysia, yet in 2014 she was asked about action. Influenced by the Shu Qi film So Close, she aims to make action beautiful. With style and grace soon the World will know about Narida and her dreams. Recently the talented Nardia was contacted by the Jaika Stunts team and has been training for a couple of years, worked on an Indian films Kama Sutra 3d and Savitee Warrior, and now aims higher with more work in film and TV in 2018. My thoughts, she will break the walls between action and acting proving that action can look as good as it hurts!



Nardia is a great lady, ready to work hard on new projects! Get ready, in 2018, it is time for Narida!
