Top 10 Road Trip Movies

This week, I took my family on a road trip. Taking kids on a total of 38 hours of time in a car does not always bode well, but it can also be a bonding experience. Big screen road trips can go either way. Some demonstrate a happy journey for family and friends while others become a nightmare march to Hell. Looking back at the large number of road trip films out there, here is our ranking of the...

It saddens me to report that Star Wars voice actor Erik Bauersfeld has passed away at the age of 93. The performer died on Sunday morning at his home in Berkeley, California. Bauersfeld, who delivered Admiral Ackbar's iconic "It's a trap!" line from RETURN OF THE JEDI, reprised his voice role as the Rebel Alliance Commander in THE FORCE AWAKENS, and for several...

Cool Videos: Yub Nub goes acoustic

Longtime STAR WARS fans love their Yub Nub. Going back to the Original Trilogy of STAR WARS, before the Special Editions and all of George Lucas ' tinkering with his films, RETURN OF THE JEDI had a different ending. There was no celebration across the galaxy over the destruction of the second Death Star and the seeming defeat of the Empire. There was a simple party at Ewok...

Carrie Fisher knows exactly what to tell your kids about Slave Leia

Talking to your kids isn't as difficult as some people make it out to be. They ask questions, because they're curious, and, as an adult, it's up to you to not be embarrassed and offer up an intelligent answer that will help them understand the world in which they live. Too often we hear "What am I supposed to tell my kids?" and we sit in amazement as someone shrugs their parental...

Cool Videos: The Great Return of the Jedi Debate

RETURN OF THE JEDI has long been a source of debate among STAR WARS fans for years and years. Is it good? Is it not? What's the deal with the Ewoks? What about Boba Fett? And, as I've witnessed these arguments unfold right in front of me, sometimes getting way too heated, middle ground has been few and far between with hyperbole popping up way too often. "It's amazing!" "It...

There's body horror where an older woman becomes a cyborg of sorts. As a little kid, that can be terrifying. But what if, as an adult, SUPERMAN III was able to run a chill down your spine? OnePerfectShot takes...

WarGames is being brought back as an interactivie digital short

Don't ask me what is going on with that WARGAMES remake, because I don't know. MGM certainly had plans to make it at one point, but maybe they realized that updating these 80s Cold War movies is easier said than done (i.e. RED DAWN) and have elected to move on. If so, then their new announcement for WARGAMES makes a hell of a lot of sense, with Interlude and MGM Television partnering...

Martin Scorcese's The King of Comedy is becoming a Broadway musical

Martin Scorsese is one of the most revered filmmakers of all time and the vast majority of his movies are considered classics or important works of cinema. While a remake of GOODFELLAS or TAXI DRIVER would be sacrilegious, that doesn't mean they cannot be adapted as other formats such as the stage which is where the 1983 dark comedy THE KING OF COMEDY is headed. THE KING OF...
