Hello, my name is Andrew Jara. I am trying to be a writer/director. I made a film named "Last Days" that i'm trying to bring some press to.

Plot: Stories told across time share themes of love.
Review: If we were going to base this movie only on ambition then Cloud Atlas would be amazing! And it does sell you for about half the movie.  But once you realize how simple the themes are, and how generic the stories with those themes are you kind of get super bored. Which is too bad because the two stories that take place in the future, while not super original, at least acquire some interesting world building and are easily the best part. 
This kind of shows the movie’s weakness that we keep cutting between each story as we cut from a super exciting underwater chase in a future city to old men and women trying to break out of an old folks home in a zany way! The stories are just too different that mixing them reminds you that you are watching the movie.  Also in another case of ambition versus reality, each actor place different roles in each story changing sex and race.  In theory this was to connect the stories but when in use, it looks silly and super distracting! 
I really wanted to like Cloud Atlas but sadly it big off more than he could chew.  
Trivia: Tom Hanks signing on helped the film get made.

Favorite completed comic series: Y: The Last Man
Plot: After all the men in the world die, the last man tries to find answers while also being chased by different groups. 
Review: Y: The Last Man is one of the better post-apocalyptic comic series.  That’s mostly because it’s more original and deals with a lot of different ideas.  The characters are smart funny and you actually care about the mystery. 
In fact it has one of the best story arcs I have ever read. It literally is hard to put it down! I kept wanting to know what was going to happen next.  I think this hurt it more on repeat readings but the first time out it is glorious.  Also the ending is well done and pretty perfect.  You should pick it up especially to take a break from a zombie genre.

Interviewer: Because you thought you had talent?

"I wish that I could, but I’m so close to finishing season one of ‘Damages’, and I made this, like, amazing cashew stir-fry for the week, so I’m actually pretty booked."

Favorite completed comic series: Planetary
Plot: A group of Archaeologist of the Impossible try to find the truth behind the secret history. 
Review: Planetary is another great comic that kind of looks at comic books in general. Here we have a secret agency learning about different events in history that gives us alternate looks at Godzilla, Manga, Marvel and Batman character in a smart twist.  The main villains are really just a different version of the fantastic four. 
Plus it makes ice powers the best powers ever with Elijah Snow. Really all the characters are bad ass in way that I didn’t think they would be. One is basically Wonder Woman but never falls into Strong Woman tropes and the other can talk to electronics.  One of the best things is how well thought out the characters and their powers are.  The idea that you could freeze someone’s piss so that you can break off their penis is both bad ass and frightening! Writer, Warren Ellis, really live inside these characters and made the world a nod and a wink towards other comics but still enough of it’s own world to be great! Check this one out as soon as you can!
