Yep, They’re Working on a Space Invaders Movie

Yep, They’re Working on a Space Invaders Movie
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.

Disney’s Streaming Service May Not Offer The Original Star Wars Movies
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.

This Original Back to the Future II Sneaker Needs to Go Back to the Past
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.

Sizes of Famous Movie Robots Compared

Sizes of Famous Movie Robots Compared
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 Ogles Ghost in the Shell’s Incredible Robot Skeleton
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.

The Princess Bride Honest Movie Trailer

The Princess Bride Honest Movie Trailer
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.

Hitch Theaters Turns Anywhere into a Drive-in

Hitch Theaters Turns Anywhere into a Drive-in
I can remember going to the drive in theater when I was young and thinking it was weird. I much preferred the regular theater where I could see and hear better than at the drive in.

AMC Theaters Might Permit Texting in Movies

AMC Theaters Might Permit Texting in Movies
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.

Virtual Reality Movie Theater Opening in Amsterdam

Virtual Reality Movie Theater Opening in Amsterdam
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 Trilogy: 30th Anniversary Re-Release Heads to Blu-ray/Digital

Back to the Future Trilogy: 30th Anniversary Re-Release Heads to Blu-ray/Digital
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.

Portable Consciousness: The Science of SELF/LESS

Portable Consciousness: The Science of SELF/LESS
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.

Ever Wonder Where all the Movie Props go After Filming?

Ever Wonder Where all the Movie Props go After Filming?
Every time I watch a movie that has a lot of props, I always wonder what happens to them when filming is done. Eventually some make it to movie prop auction sites, which suggest they are sold off at some point after filming.

A Farscape Movie is Coming!

A Farscape Movie is Coming!
A decade ago, back before the name change when there were actually cool series on Sci-Fi Channel that had nothing to do with ghost hunting, Farscape was one of the coolest shows on the network. The series had some cool characters and was cancelled before many fans were ready for it to go.

A Match Made in Hollywood? The Ultimate Movie-Themed Engagement Photo Shoot

A Match Made in Hollywood? The Ultimate Movie-Themed Engagement Photo Shoot
You’re going to wish you thought of this first after seeing the awesome gallery below. Redditor hamburgersandwiches and his fiance got married last Saturday (so they’re husband and wife now) and have released to the universe some of the coolest and kookiest engagement photos ever.

VR Cinema 3D for Oculus Rift Gives You Your Own Theater, Seats Included

VR Cinema 3D for Oculus Rift Gives You Your Own Theater, Seats Included
My brain hates first-person games, so most of the stuff I’ve read and seen about the Oculus Rift don’t really interest me. But I’d be willing to buy the Rift just for Joo-Hyung Ahn’s VR Cinema 3D.

AOC Cinematic 29-inch Display Rocks 21:9 Aspect Ratio on the Cheap

AOC Cinematic 29-inch Display Rocks 21:9 Aspect Ratio on the Cheap
I’m a huge fan of movies and I like watching my favorite flicks on the big screen in my media room and on my computer screen. One thing that always bothers me about watching widescreen movies are the black bars on the top and bottom of the screen.
