This Is How They Shot The Opening Scene Of ‘Back To The Future’ In One Take

Everybody’s got at least one film they can watch over and over again without getting bored. Mine is ‘Back To The Future.’ The concept of time travel has always intrigued me. Making the time machine out of a hot car was just the chilli on the fries. If I had to pinpoint a particular scene in the film that stood out to me the most, I might have to go with the escape sequence back to 1985. But after watching this video, I have come to better appreciate that long crane shot in the open. It perfectly sets you up for what’s in store and tells a lot about two of the most memorable characters in the history of film. (more…)

Boy, this has been some week for Deadpool news. First, our favorite wise crackin’ “Merc with the Mouth” gets a confirmed live action movie deal slated for 2016 (all thanks to that leaked test footage and the internets power to move mountains). Like an endless platter of savory fish tacos, the heaping portion of satisfaction continues. Now, Sideshow Collectibles has announced the first entry in their Marvel Comics 1/6 scale figure series, Deadpool. And sweet Christmas if it isn’t everything you ever wanted in a premium Deadpool figure – 12 inches of red coated righteousness.  The first figure ever to break the 4th wall!   (more…)

Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Raiders Of The Lost Ark’ Circa 1914 Is A Thing Now

- 09-23-14Cool Stuff, Film Posted by Aspry Jones

INDY STUFF

Steven Soderbergh has had a long and experimental career in film. He’s made his real money directing commercial hits such as the ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ remakes. Those jobs enabled him to play around with questionable projects like ‘Bubble,’ a film packed with amateur actors. Obviously some jobs aren’t too small for him, so he’ll take time out to direct a series for Cinemax or serve as 2nd unit director for ‘The Hunger Games.’ He’s a guy who loves to do things in film, and apparently with films, as his latest effort proves. Like that time he took Steven Spielberg’s ‘Raiders Of The Lost Ark’ and turned it into a silent movie. A silent movie with…dance music? (more…)

Some Clowns Take Hours To Text Back. They Ain’t Groot! He Hits Me Up Pronto!

text first

I can’t say that Groot was my favorite character in that stellar opus ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy,’ but I’d love to have him as a friend. I imagine he’d be a fantastic listener. Reaching out to the happening sapling would be easy as pie. He could nod in understanding, give my shoulder a good pat and respond with kind eyes. Our timbered comrade is the type of guy who won’t screen my calls. He’d pick up asap because he genuinely values friendship as a priceless gift. In a perfect world, cell phone towers would sprout from the moon and bridge signals across planets, allowing me to give him a shout with no dropped calls! I could text him a simple, “hey buddy!” whenever I felt like it and he’d immediately respond back with an epic: “I am Groot.” In fact, he just did. (more…)

Race Through History with These ‘BACK TO THE FUTURE II’ Shoes!

Ever since Michael J. Fox made fools of us all and claimed in an ABC network special coinciding with the release of Back to the Future II that scientists were working on developing an actual hoverboard as seen in the film, it’s been difficult for me to trust anyone. However, the folks behind the film are looking to rectify Fox’s lies (okay, that might be a bit harsh) and make my 10-year-old heart sing, along with everyone else with a fondness for the time-hopping trilogy of movies. They’re still rolling out a feet-related product, just not one that flies. (more…)
