And We Are Back!

Hello world!

After much poking, prodding, panicking, pouting and perspiring our main site is back online.

Welcome to the much improved rufusproject.com which will give us greater freedom and more control over what we can give you.

It will still take a while to get all the back episodes live on the site, but new episodes should be super reliable.

Speaking of which…  our delayed Redeeming Features Cast on She-Devil will be going out this Friday for your listening pleasure.

Thank you again for your patience, and expect to see many more improvements in the coming months.

Thanks For Your Patience

42a0c868fad26ccebf123244cf6da8b5Hi all, Trevor here.

Just a quick update on those horrid technical issues.

We are in the process of transferring everything to a shiny new server which will let us host everything on site so there will be no issues with external hosting locking down access. To be fair, I don’t think Google Drive is really meant to be used for what we have been doing!

Now here’s the catch…

This has cost us pesky monies, so if you do enjoy The Rufus Project, and have a little spare monies, please help us cover some of this extra expense. It would be much appreciated.

Regardless, we are on track to getting back up and running even if we may need to skip an episode along the way.

Thanks for your patience and we really will appreciate any help you feel you can give.

Just click on that help out link down there!!

So… Suddenly Everything Has Gone Haywire

wp-1455739003865.jpgHi all, Trevor here.

You may have noticed that streaming and downloading of the podcast has stopped working here at rufusproject.com.  This is being looked into and hopefully my grandiose plans to fix this over the next few days will actually work.

If that wasn’t bad enough, there is a HUGE problem with the recording of our She-Devil Redeeming Features cast and it will unfortunately be delayed.

The good news is you can still hear the podcasts very easily.  Our podomatic page is still active and has all the latest episodes ready for you to stream or download.  This also means the iTunes feed is available so please subscribe to The Rufus Project through your favourite podcast app to hear our latest stuff!

Here’s hoping this is only a minor hiccup and we are back up sooner rather than later.

Thanks!

mary_reilly_ver1Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Mary Reilly from 1996 as challenged by Leo from our Facebook page!

Did anyone talk to Julia Roberts about her accent?  Is John Malkovic worried about his make up?  Does this movie have less plot than it’s sub plots?  Can no one really tell that Jeckyl and Hyde are played by the same person?  Is this move redeemable?

Listen on and find out!

Did we miss any redeeming features?  Do you think we were too generous or unfair?  Do you have a suggestion, or a challenge, for us to take on in the future?  Then get in touch with us by either leaving a comment on our homepageFacebook or Twitter, or email us at therufusproject@gmail.com

The Podcast Is Returning!

Hi all!

Yep, Kristian and I are back with a fresh podcast incoming.  In fact it will be live in just a couple of days.

If you remember from last time, we are coming back with a challenge from a listener (thanks Leo) who said he would like to see us “try to redeem” Mary Reilly, starring Julia Roberts and John Malkovich, from 1996.

Want to know how we went?  Then subscribe to The Rufus Project via your favourite podcast app, head to our homepage at www.rufusproject.com or follow The Rufus Project on Twitter or Facebook.

We look forward to catching up with all of you this Friday!

Trevor

resident-evilKristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Resident Evil from 2002.  Do we finally have a good movie based on a video game, or is it just plain evil?

Does anyone actually say Mila Jovovic’s character’s name at any point? Did anyone think the CGI effects were good?  Is any character memorable?  Did Michelle Rodriguez actually want all the stuff to happen to her character?  Is this move redeemable?}

Listen on and find out!

large_xwq8oncksdgy0oxjydq5hvhuxgpKristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Toys from 1992.  Is it a work of art, or a descent into madness?

Can an entire world be built from rolling green hills and a few industrial locations?  Do they expect Robin Williams to carry this movie?  What exactly is Michael Gambon trying to do?  Is there any point to Robin Wright even being in this movie? Is this movie redeemable?
