Death korps or Space Marines? Space marines....

You think? Both are equally uber-awesome in my opinion, hence the difficulty of the question! Space Marines are all kinds of righteous badass, but the Korps (and Guard by extension) have the heroism factor of being normals taking on things from alternate-realities that can kill them by sneezing in their direction....

so, how are things? we haven't heard from each other in a while eh? busy with your studies i suppose?

well anyway, you should check this out if you haven't, it's a new Stalingrad movie the Russians cooked up www.youtube.com/watch?v=wekmV8…, apparently it's the first non-American IMAX film ever made.

Hey man, thanks for checking in on me. :D

Yeah things have been quite hectic as you might imagine: although I've finished my first semester at uni, I've got exams for much of next week and one last assignment to hand in by the end of tomorrow. Other then that, things are pretty damn fine: I'm confident of my abilities in the upcoming exams and I'm handing in a new and improved resume to every available job position I can find. Even had an actual job interview the other week! Hasn't actually contacted me since so I'm almost certain the bastard is simply ignoring me in favor of another applicant but what can you do right? Just keep on applying.... bastard, he even said I interviewed well!

How are things your end? I notice that your artistic absence has come to an end with some new pics, going to check those out in a minute and further delay the completion of this essay. ;)

This film actually looks quite impressive! It seems like it's been absolutely ages since a big-budget WW2 film has been released, all I keep seeing are C-list populated affairs from the local DVD stores with rubbish acting, worse special effects and some laughably bad mock-ups of tanks and equipment. Stalingrad 2013 doesn't look like it'll suffer from that; those are some realistic looking Panzer IVs. Not so sure about the Soviets effortlessly melee-ing their way through Germans, the flamethrower dude they seem to have stolen from Metro: Last Light or the flaming Russian infantry charge at the end but it is a Russian film as you said so I can hardly expect a completely unbiased depiction of events. Still, I'd definitely watch this given the chance. 

Looks better then Enemy at the Gates at any rate. ;)

Also: apologies for taking so long to reply. One day I'll become more punctual at this....
