A THIRD BOONDOCK SAINTS IS HAPPENING
Considering how ill-received the the second one was, I definitely didn’t see this coming.
SUPERCUT: THE VEHICLES OF WES ANDERSON
Jaume R. Lloret put together this supercut showcasing the many vehicle POV scenes in Wes Anderson movies. Also check out Lloret’s supercuts of closeups in Edgar Wright films and every death in a Quentin Tarantino flick ever.
"OH MAN, I SHOT MARVIN IN THE FACE!"
Vincent and Jules were just on a routine pickup for their boss when, suddenly, their plans were thwarted by Marvin. Luckily, The Wolf came in for backup. The day was saved and Bonnie was none the wiser.

THE NEW ‘GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY’ TRAILER IS PRETTY INTENSE
We had a funny trailer, a trailer with lots of walking, but now it’s time to get serious. This trailer still has plenty of laughs thanks to Rocket Raccoon. Just hurry up and come out already!!!
NEW ‘TRANSFORMERS 4: AGE OF EXTINCTION’ TRAILER
Say what you will about Michael Bay’s take on the Transformers franchise, but the dude knows how to pack a buttload of excitement into his action scenes (or at least trick you into thinking they’re exciting by using super quick cuts that put your heart rate up). And besides, Optimus Prime wielding a giant sword and riding Grimlock through a city? I double dog dare you not to want to see that on a giant screen.

IF WES ANDERSON DIRECTED THE OPENING CREDITS TO ‘FOREST GUMP’
While the pacing of some of the shots isn’t Wes Anderson-y enough for me (Some shots held on too long while hands fiddled with things. Should have been quicker cuts IMHO.), this is still pretty awesome. But does it follow Wes Anderson’s perfect symmetry?

Here’s a screenshot from Captain America: The Winter Soldier showing Cap’s to-do list. Poor dude. Frozen for nearly 70 years, there’s a lot he has to catch up on like Thai food, educating himself on the ups and downs of the Berlin wall, and apparently he’s unsure about Rocky II. At least he got Star Wars out of the way.
Sheesh, Steve! You should put buy a smartphone on that list because there’s totally an app for keeping track of all that stuff. Christ, you could knock that list out in a few days ON a smartphone!
Seven of the Best Film Themed Slot Machines
American poet and philosopher, Henry David Thoreau once said, “This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” Nothing seems to emphasise the concept of art being all around us quite like the idea of theme based slot machines. With online gambling sites like jackpotjoy Bingo, we find endless examples of fantastically themed slots, although the true art can be found outside of the web, with the ‘read deal’ slot machines. Film themed slots are personally my favourite, deeper analyzing how creators have transformed a film and its complex ideas into a gambling machine is rather interesting. Here are seven of my favourite film themed slot machines.
MAGIC: THE GATHERING IS GETTING A MOVIE
It was bound to happen. 20th Century Fox scooped up the rights to Hasbro's trading card game Magic: The Gathering. The studio wants to turn it into a big franchise like Lord of the Rings which sounds awesome. The bad news? They’re getting Simon Kinberg to help bring it to life. Let’s just hope it’s not as awful as another beloved franchise that he brought to life on the silver screen: Fantastic Four.
I’m actually a huge MTG fan and, yes, I even follow the lore. While I’d much rather see a Game of Thrones-esque TV series, I’ll gladly settle for a movie. The lore isn’t anything mindblowing to begin with, so there’s definitely room to improve upon the foundations for a film franchise.

HOW MANY TIMES WOULD HARRY AND MARV HAVE DIED IN THE ‘HOME ALONE' MOVIES?
I always wondered this, even as a kid. Sure, I’d seen hundreds of boulders, anvils, safes, pianos and more dropped on Wile E. Coyote’s head in cartoons, but I still wince when that iron drops on Marv’s head in Home Alone. And then there was the scene in Home Alone 2 where Kevin is chucking bricks at Marv’s skull from a rooftop and I always thought he’d be dead as shit in real life.
Screen Junkies got a doctor to diagnose every injury sustained by the Wet Bandits across both Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost In New York and the final conclusion is further proof that they just don’t make kid flicks like they used to.
This Fan Spent Two Years Re-editing The Dark Crystal And HOLY SH!T
As if the 1982 Jim Henson & Frank Oz fantasy wasn’t creepy enough, scoodidabop went and re-edited the whole thing. This fanmade director’s cut is meant to more closely resemble Henson and Oz’s original vision for the film.
From the scoodidabop:
Early versions of The Dark Crystal were a bit different than the version we see today. Jim Henson and Frank Oz originally sought to create a much darker story that relied more on the audience and less on voice-overs and inner monologues explaining the plot. In this version there’s no narrator, Jen’s inner monologues are gone, and the Skeksis hardly ever say anything in English (Aughra speaks some Skesis too!). This version is much more modern and a little darker with this original audio and the slightly different score. Some of the scenes are moved around too, which adds to the surreal feel of the original film. Some test audiences were more casual moviegoers and responded negatively to this version so the Henson team redubbed the ENTIRE film to help explain the plot to the audience up front and make things more obvious.
The whole thing is currently available in its entirety on YouTube, so be sure to check it out before the copyright lawyers swoop in. Also check out the Menta Floss interview with the mad genius behind this creepy cut.

This Star Wars Sweater Looks Like An Amusement Park on Shrooms
Check this Star Wars sweater from Rage On, available this upcoming January for the cold winter. It totally looks like a trippy version of a cheap Star Wars amusement park or a Windows 95 screensaver that went batshit insane when it loaded. It’s available for pre-order from the company, and it doesn’t say if it’s officially licensed or not (I’m guessing no), so you might want to take that into consideration if you’re already set on grabbing this crazy sweater.
