Cool Videos: Ten hours of Princess Leia walking in NYC

If there’s just one more parody of the Walking In NYC you should check out, it’s this one. Watch what happens with a Rebel Alliance princess walks around NYC for 10 hours; the non-stop verbal harassment by creeps like Sith lords, Yoda, and even Lando Calrissian is relentless. The only way this would have been made worse for Leia is if she was wearing a gold bikini. Even her...

Awesome Art We've Found Around The Net: Dracula, Looper, Super Mario, X-Men

I have always sought out great fan art and have wanted to share it with as many people as possible. "Awesome Artwork We've Found Around The Net" is the outlet for that passion. In this column I will showcase the kick-ass...

Rumor: Is this the shortlist of directors for Masters of the Universe?

In early October, director Jon M. Chu dropped out of the live-action He-Man flick, MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE. There's been no word on who would replace him but they did nab Terry Rossio (LONE RANGER) to tidy up the script. I don't know how many of you are still holding out hope that this film will come out sometime in this century. I still don't know what to think about it. As a...

BUY THE BOOK HERE Our very own Paul Shirey runs a fantastic column here at JoBlo.com called The Best Movie You Never Saw that examines films both old and new that deserve to be watched by a wider audience.

C'mon Hollywood: Is Hollywood going to start being Made in China?

If you look around your surrounding area right now, chances are there are five or more things with a stamp or sticker on them that say Made in China. It’s not uncommon, as China is the largest economic power in the world and continues to grow. I’m not even going to attempt to get into socioeconomic global politics, but there are certain moves being made these days that cause...

Cool Videos: Everything wrong with Looper in 3 minutes

There is no way to make a perfect time travel movie because of the paradox inherent in time travel. Look at every movie that features some sort of travel through time and there is bound to be some sort of hole in the logic or plot that the filmmakers missed. It is those of us on the internet that nitpick and scour those movies for errors in continuity. But, we do it because we care....

Want to read the story Rian Johnson wrote that eventually became Looper?

Rian Johnson is fast becoming one of my favorite directors. Not just because he makes good movies but because he is willing to share the inner workings of his creative process with the world. For LOOPER, he shared his animatic pitch reel, a commentary for his trailer, and a ton of behind the scenes material. Not to rest now that the film is no longer in theaters, Johnson has...

We've got a few new announcements for upcoming blu-ray/DVD releases, featuring the likes of Peter Pan, zombies, and time travel, all of which would make for a hell of a fun ride if actually mashed-up in a feature.  One can hope.  Disney is releasing PETER PAN in their Diamond Edition format, Sony is releasing the super-cool time travel romp LOOPER, and the unfortunately still...

So you say you want to be a working actor? Then read this interview with Looper star Noah Segan!

If you've ever talked to people about wanting to be an actor, you've no doubt heard some variation on the idea of "don't even bother giving it a go if you can see yourself doing anything else."  And while I don't necessarily agree with that sentiment 100%, I do think it speaks well to the idea that it's damn difficult to succeed in the acting business to such a degree that you can...
