Hey-hey! During our brief break where I got writer’s blocked the fuck up, TarsTarkas.NET crossed the magic milestone into 9 years online! So better late than never, especially when I have an excuse to buy a cake. A cake that was ON SALE! With PINK ICING! And mistakenly labeled marble cake when it was just vanilla (actually, BOO! to that point!)
Nine years is a long time, but we’ve only just begun. Plans are afoot to add some new features, and to bring back a few older ones that have fallen by the wayside. But I don’t want to jinx anything by giving away too much. So until then, it’s time to eat some cake!!!

But before that happens, there will be a few more films popping up. First up is Stonados on April 27. It features tornadoes with rocks in them. May 11th features the premiere of Rise of the Dinosaurs, and there are no more movie premieres scheduled for the rest of May. The real mystery is Rise of the Dinosaurs. Because I can’t find a thing about it. Which means it’s probably something else renamed. But what? Asylum’s Age of the Dinosaurs? That doesn’t seem finished enough to be it. Jurassic Attack? It’s out in Europe, so maybe. A bootleg Ice Age sequel? Or it could be something else entirely. No one who knows is saying nothing! Those jerks!
EDIT: Just got confirmation from the TuningIntoSciFiTV guys that Rise of the Dinosaurs IS Jurassic Attack! Also Stonados has been delayed due to the events in Boston (it is set in Boston)
Set in the near future in Tokyo, Japan. The evil terrorist organization Galactor has declared war on the world. The group possesses more advanced technology than governments and occupies over half of the planet. Dr. Kozaburo Nambu of the International Science Organization gathers together 5 superhero ninja agents, known collectively as Gatchaman, to stop Galactor.

TimesColonist has some of the filming details:
It stars Paul Johansson (One Tree Hill) as Joe, a widowed ex-storm chaser; Sebastian Spence (First Wave) as his former partner; Thea Gill (Queer as Folk) as a tough bureaucrat; and William B. Davis (The X-Files), as a lighthouse keeper.
Also featured are rising local stars Jessica McLeod (The Christmas Consultant) as Megan, Joe’s rebellious teenage daughter; Dylan Schmid (Once Upon a Time) as Jackson, her younger brother; and Grace Vukovic (Mulligans) as their friend Julie.
Coultish Management has some set photos from the filming:
Everyone had a great time on set and many got to experience movie magic with huge wind machines simulating the storm and big chunks of Styrofoam “stones” flying around set! Here are a few snapshots of some of our members on set!
Starting Saturday, posts from people who aren’t me are going to start appearing on TarsTarkas.NET. We’ve brought on some additional writers to help keep the site updates more regular, allowing me to still be productive while I also focus on more time-consuming projects like the podcasts and videos. It also means there will be actual good writing here and not just me blathering on about whatever dog I saw while out walking. Soooo many wiener dogs… Join me in welcoming Ian Maddison and Sheldrake to TarsTarkas.NET! Their posts will appear on the main site and will make TarsTarkas.NET a better place. Having previewed their work, I am excited, and you will be too.
If you or someone you know is interesting in writing for TarsTarkas.NET, details are in this post.

Monopoly will be the first of the three films, probably because a lot of the ground work has already been done over the years. Ridley Scott is still listed as a producer, but I do not know if they will continue with the “guy wakes up in a Monopoly world” plot that was rumored years ago. All the films are being marketed as family films.
Emmett/Furla is also bankrolling The Tomb, Two Guns, and Broken City, so they’re posed to become very very rich. Which they will need when no one watches these Hasbro films. I mean, I can’t wait for Hungry Hungry Hippos!
I actually seriously can’t wait.
