Mister Tim is very excited to perform his geek-centric music for the 2012 Comicfest audience. In addition to being the driving force behind comedy a cappella quartet moosebutter, whose “Star Wars (John Williams is the Man)” shot to viral internet fame in 2008, Mister Tim performs with more than a dozen award-winning vocal groups, including his own solo vocal live-looping show.To get a taste of what he does, take a look at his one-man demonstration video. Mister Tim is taking beat boxing and a cappella performance to the next technological level. It’s just amazing what he can do in a live performance!

Mister Tim’s 2012 Comicfest performance will include several brand-new Sci-Fi/Fantasy songs, available on CD at the show and on his web site after the show and on Saturday at his table at Comicfest. Everything you hear in his performance and in his recordings is Mister Tim: every sound, instrument, note and word comes from his voice.

Arrietty, a tiny, but tenacious 14-year-old, lives with her parents in the recesses of a suburban garden home, unbeknownst to the homeowner and her housekeeper. Like all little people, Arrietty (AIR-ee-ett-ee) remains hidden from view, except during occasional covert ventures beyond the floorboards to "borrow" scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human hosts. But when 12-year-old Shawn, a human boy who comes to stay in the home, discovers his mysterious housemate one evening, a secret friendship blossoms. If discovered, their relationship could drive Arrietty’s family from the home and straight into danger.

This movie is rated G.

Safe House Screening Quiz/Contest

Safe House Screening Quiz/Contest
Screening Feb. 7th at 7pm
Denver CO

Oscar winner Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds star in the action-thriller Safe House. Washington plays the most dangerous renegade from the CIA, who comes back onto the grid after a decade on the run. When the South African safe house he’s remanded to is attacked by mercenaries, a rookie operative escapes with him. Now, the unlikely allies must stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead.

For the past year, Matt Weston has been frustrated by his inactive, backwater post in Cape Town. A “housekeeper” who aspires to be a full-fledged agent, the loyal company man has been waiting for an opportunity to prove himself. When the first and only occupant he’s had proves to be the most dangerous man he’s ever met, Weston readies for duty.

Tobin Frost has eluded capture for almost a decade. One of the best ops men that the CIA’s known, the ex-intelligence officer has given up assets and sold military intel to anyone with cash since he turned. From trading secrets to North Korea to aiding splinter cells, the damage he’s done to the U.S. is immeasurable. And he’s now back on the reservation with a secret.

As soon as Frost is brought in for debriefing, mercenaries come and tear apart Weston’s safe house. Barely escaping, the unlikely partners must discover if their attackers have been sent by terrorists or someone on the inside who will kill anyone standing in the way. Now it’s up to Weston to figure out who he can trust before they’re both eliminated from the game.

This movie is rated R for Strong Violence Throughout and some language. You must be at least 17 years of age to play for tickets.

Directed by: Xavier Gens

Starring: Lauren German, Michael Beihn, Milo Ventimiglia, Courtney B. Vance, Ivan Gonzalez, Michael Eklund, introducing Abbey Thickson with Ashton Holmes and Rosanna Arquette.

 In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers—all tenants of a New York high rise apartment—escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building’s bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, and they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness, each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next.  While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape even with no promise of salvation on the outside.
