New obsession and thinking about asking my 40th birthday present 3,5 months in advance.
(the list is much much much longer, but these are in the top 3)
Classic Ads: Gun Fight
Gun Fight, known as Western Gun in Japan & Europe, is a 1975 arcade shooter game designed by Tomohiro Nishikado, and released by Taito in Japan & Europe and by Midway Games in North America. It was the first video game to depict human-to-human combat, while the Midway version was also the first video game to use a microprocessor. Following its November 1975 release in North America, it went on to sell over 8,000 arcade cabinets in the U.S.
The theme of the game involves two Old West cowboys armed with revolvers and squaring off in a duel. Whoever shoots the other cowboy first wins the duel. Unlike in a real-life duel, however, both cowboys get numerous opportunities to duel in order to score points (one point per successful draw). [Wiki]
Photographer Sandro Miller Recreates Famous Portraits With John Malkovich As His Model
Renowned photographer Sandro Miller has worked together with legendary Hollywood A-Lister John Malkovich many times, but when Miller wanted to celebrate the photography greats that had inspired and guided him, he had to do something special. So he, with Malkovich as his dashing unisex model, recreated some of those influential photographers’ most important portraits in a photo series called “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to photographic masters.”
The series puts both Miller’s exceptional photography and Malkovich’s masterful acting talents front and center. Miller gets each amazing portrait’s lighting, mood and composition down perfectly, while Malkovich replicates the subject’s emotions and expressions so perfectly that the photos become nearly indistinguishable, regardless of the age or gender of the original subject. And it was all done without Photoshop!

Porque una serie/película no es solo una historia y unos actores, muchas más cosas entran en juego para conseguir una inmersión total en la historia. Pocas series han aunado tan bien tantas virtudes.
