C'mon, Hollywood: Where is our next great American action film?

It seems like action movies from the U.S. these days just arenít all that great, you know? Aside from comic book adaptations, giant robots and Jason Statham vehicles, itís pretty slim pickings for an action junkie looking to get his rocks off cinematically speaking. The last great action movie I can think of at the top of my head is easily THE RAID: REDEMPTION and you can imagine...

C'mon, Hollywood: Here's what Disney should do with Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones is easily one of the most iconic and badass characters to have ever graced the silver screen. Some people had the original STAR WARS trilogy mold their childhood, but mine was always set with the Indiana Jones films. Unfortunately in 2008, a lot of the magic was ruined with INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL and to keep from experiencing all out...

Cool Videos: Watch a rare, hour long PBS documentary on the making of Raiders of the Lost Ark

Behind the scenes features on classic movies are always a treat to see. Sure, movies like STAR WARS and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK have some archival footage but the Blu-ray releases tend to favor new documentaries and videos using old footage. While these are still treats for any fan, seeing the original behind the scenes as they were originally seen is a great treat too. Slash Film...

Here comes the live action Dora the Explorer movie and it looks awesome!

No, this is not a joke. Ok, well it is kind of a joke. The brilliant minds over at College Humor put together a fake trailer for a DORA THE EXPLORER movie featuring MODERN FAMILY star Ariel Winter in the title role. The trailer for DORA THE EXPLORER AND THE DESTINY MEDALLION garnered so much attention on Facebook and YouTube that the site decided to produce a three part web series....

Scripty! Read Harrison Ford's notes on the script for Raiders of the Lost Ark

If given the opportunity to get inside the mind of an actor for two seconds, anyone would take it. Okay, as long as it was an actor that you approved of. What if I said you could get inside Harrison Ford 's head circa 1981 when he was making notes on his script for RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK? I know I do! Well then you are in luck! Some pages from Ford's RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK...

The University of Chicago got a package delivered for Indiana Jones

So, either this is a very elaborate marketing ploy or someone has a lot of free time on their hands. Either way, this is pretty damn cool. The University of Chicago received a very elaborate package addressed to Dr. Henry Walton Jones, Jr. or as many of you may know him, Indiana Jones. BadAss Digest shared the story which the university also posted to their Tumblr page. There is...

I Want That: geek wedding rings

These rings that I ran across this morning actually come at just the perfect time.  Not because I'm getting married or anything, but because I recently decided I'd like to weave LORD OF THE RINGS-related lines into my wedding ceremony/vows if and when they ever come to pass.  I'd even go so far as to say I'd like to Hugo Weaving them in.  Anyway. These geek-related wedding...
