MK12’s History of America was released a couple weeks ago, and I have to say, it turned out way better than I thought it would. The story is about a young cowboy who’s father is killed by astronauts, so he vows to get revenge and kill all the astronauts, starting a great war between cowboys and astronauts. Phew!
The plot is totally silly, but that’s what makes it so fun. Who doesn’t want to see cowboys fight astronauts?! The whole thing was shot against a blue screen, and digitally messed with to the extreme. I thought that it might be too distracting, and just look lame, like a bad Playstation game. But they did a magnificent job, and the whole thing is wonderful to watch.
The best part is that you can download the whole thing for free off of their site. It comes in a full size, or a handy iPod versions as well. Definitely take the time and watch this gem.
I’ve also thrown a ton of images from the movie under the cut, so be sure to check them out of you’re still not sold on this.
