Inspired by the iconic scene from the movie where E.T. makes Eliot’s bike fly, Firebox is selling this officially licensed E.T. Moon Lamp. It features a moveable silhouette of Eliot and E.T. against a lit full moon.
Just like Star Wars merchandise, there’s a market for every single sort of Marvel product you can think of. And to prove that point, this is the Marvel Sound Effects Machine available from FireBox. With the push of a button, you can play one of eight sound effects from Marvel superhero movies, and I’m pretty sure I just found the new soundtrack to my life.
Because nothing says I’m the boss around here like an over-the-top letter opener, this is the Alien Xenomorph Letter Opener from Diamond Select Toys and available on Amazon (affiliate link). I think it goes without saying it’s the perfect letter opener for playing the knife game (aka five-finger filet) like Bishop in the original Alien movie.
To spite Christopher Nolan for wanting people to visit movie theaters in the middle of a global pandemic to watch his movie Tenet, YouTuber WULFF DEN managed to put the movie on five Game Boy Advance cartridges so he could watch it the way it absolutely was not meant to be: super pixelated and at four frames/second.
No stranger to making unbelievably realistic cakes, pastry artist Natalie Sideserf of Sideserf Cake Studio in Austin, Texas recently made a John McClane bust cake from Die Hard, one of everybody’s favorite Christmas movies. Welcome to the party, pal!
As far as I know, the entire plot of Space Invaders is “increase speed, drop down, and reverse direction!” But making vapid and obtuse movies based on popular franchises is what Hollywood does best these days, so I guess I wasn’t too surprised when I heard there’s a Space Invaders movie in development.
Just like every other major company and network these days, Disney is launching its own standalone video streaming service. And why not? The company has a large catalog of content. They own Marvel, The Muppets, Star Wars, and have decades worth of their own movies.
Time marches on and in the end, it gets us all. Back To The Future II’s sneakers, like the rest of us, are at time’s mercy. Currently offered on eBay is a single shoe (the left one) of one of the pairs of Nike Air Mags used in the production of the classic 1989 sci-fi comedy.
If you thought ED-209 from Robocop was big, he’s nothing compared to some of the huge robots in movies. I’m just hoping that life doesn’t imitate art, because if it does, the robot uprising is going to be full of massive robots.
Adam Savage might not be on Mythbusters anymore, but you can still watch him on YouTube on Tested. On the latest episode of the series, Savage goes to practical effects shop Weta Workshop to check out the skeleton suit they made for the new Ghost in the Shell movie.
I really like The Princess Bride. I can remember not wanting to watch it because it was a “girl’s movie” and now I’ve seen it a million times. The Honest Movie Trailers folks have put one together for the classic flick and it sums it up well.
A few weeks back I took my daughter to the theater to see a movie I wasn’t remotely interested in. I did it because she begged and gave me her cute puppy dog face. I’m hoping she hits an awkward stage so some of the power swings back in my direction in the relationship.
Amsterdam is getting a unique and very cool theater that will have movie fans giving up stadium seating and a big screen for rotating chairs and goggles. The project is called The Virtual Reality cinema and it will use chairs that can swivel 360-degrees, Samsung Gear VR headsets, and surround sound via Sennheiser HD 201 headphones.
Back to the Future is one of my all-time favorite films. In fact, the whole trilogy is pretty awesome. But it’s the 1985 original that really kicked things off, and it’s celebrating its 30th anniversary now.
I just saw an early screening of the sci-fi thriller SELF/LESS, and really enjoyed it. The film stars Ben Kingsley as a Billionaire real estate magnate diagnosed with a terminal illness, who in his dying days is tipped off to a mysterious corporation who claims they can give him new life.
