My cable has been out the last few nights and someone got me the Indiana Jones dvd four pack a couple birthdays ago so I decided to screen a Jones flick a night. After completing Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade yesterday, my mind immediately wondered what happened to the babes of Indiana Jones, particularly evil Nazi Elsa Schnieder since I just watched her and she was by far the hottest. So here’s of quick run down of then and now. On a side note, bet you had no idea that Dan Aykroyd was in an Indiana Jones movie.
Karen Allen aka Marion Ravenwood
We all know what happened to her. This lifetime hippie looking actress still looked pretty good in the 4th installment of Indiana Jones at age 57. Nice aging Karen.
This is the recently leaked trailer for THOR, which was shown at this years Comic Con. I dont have too much to say about this except HOLY SHIT! This looks awesome, and a 5 minute trailer is something that all action movies should adopt. I love the start of the clip where Clark Gregg is grilling Thor about where he got his training, (”Afghanistan? Chechnya?”) I keep wanting Chris Hemsworth to shout “WRONG! VIKING HEAVEN, BITCH!” and come over the top with the THOR hammer. I also love the part at the end where the special agent looks at the other and says ” Is this one of Starks?” ” I dont know, they don’t tell us anything”. The reference to Iron Man is just slipped in. (Watch it before it get’s taken down, which is probably going to be any second because we replaced the video about 87 times.)
Ferris Buellers Day Off is by far one of my favorite movies of all time. When I started to hear theories that there might be a little more to the story than meets the eye, I had to do some digging. My favorite thought-piece about Ferris Bueller is the “Fight Club” theory, in which Ferris Bueller, the person, is just a figment of Cameron’s imagination, like Tyler Durden, and Sloane is the girl Cameron secretly loves.
One day while he’s lying sick in bed, Cameron lets “Ferris” steal his father’s car and take the day off, and as Cameron wanders around the city, all of his interactions with Ferris and Sloane, and all the impossible hijinks, are all just played out in his head. This is part of the reason why the “three” characters can see so much of Chicago in less than one day — Cameron is alone, just imagining it all.
It isn’t until he destroys the front of the car in a fugue state does he finally get a grip and decide to confront his father, after which he imagines a final, impossible escape for Ferris and a storybook happy ending for Sloane (”He’s gonna marry me!”), the girl that Cameron knows he can never have.

Animation named “35mm” by artist Pascal Monaco represents a set of 35 movies in an unusual but fun way. The German artist has managed to make the video last only 2 minutes with minimum representation. Check out the animation and see if you can recognize some of the movies.
This week’s movie trailer round up features a few movies to actually get excited for. Ben Affleck makes his return to the big screen with “The Town” which looks pretty bad ass. There are also a couple Glifianakis movies and another M Night Shyamalan flix. Yes I know, we need another Shyamalan movie like we need an asshole on our elbow, but since he didnt write or really do anything with it, besides put his name on it, it doesn’t look bad. P.S. make sure you watch the last trailer, Team Inception, it’s hilarious.
After a couple of vague teasers, the studio has finally released a trailer with actual footage from David Fincher’s Facebook epic. It actually looks good now. Nice Radiohead cover, too.

I always loved Lieutenant Riggs. The hair, the attitude, the craziness, and I always thought it was all an act. After listening to this phone conversation between Mel Gibson and his very ex girl friend Oksana Grigorieva, I have no other option but to believe that he wasnt acting at all. The directors basically said “Mel, listen, just do what you do on a regular basis and we’ll record it and call it Leathal Weapon”. This recording is actually pretty disturbing. He admits to hitting her, threatening her, and even at one point, tell her he has no problem putting her in a rose bed, because he is “capable” of it. Well, Mel, I have to admit bud, you might have a bit of a problem on your hands.
From earning PhDs to starting small businesses, here are the smartest, geekiest and most driven porn stars of all time. Porn Stars are often derided for being unintelligent and shallow, but let’s be honest, they were smart enough to make a living at something we all do for free. These women have been successful academically as well as financially, from founding successful enterprises outside of the porn industry to leading an Oxford debate team to victory. These 10 adult film stars prove they have big brains to match their other large assets
1. Asia Carrera
Not to be mistaken with Wayne’s World’s Tia Carrera, Asia Carrera was born in New York City and studied piano as a child (which is probably where she gets her fast fingers). She was so good at this, in fact (the piano playing), that she performed at Carnegie Hall TWICE before even turning 15. She’s starred in over 275 adult films in her career and has as IQ of 156. She also attended Rutgers University from which she earned a full scholarship, where she double-majored in Business and Japanese. She never quite finished her full degree, though, because she made more money at the stripping job she had during college and according to her just “had more fun” and, according to Cyndi Lauper, that’s all girls want to do anyway, so everything seemed to work out. She’s gone on to own the rights to some of her most famous films, including “A is for Asia”, and has become one of the most well-known adult film stars of all time. She’s the self proclaimed “nerd of porn” and is an avid player of Unreal Tournament (a popular First-Person-Shooter game). She even went as far as designing her own game skins. Her gamertag is Megabitchgoddess, for anyone who’s interested. You may recognize her from the fake porn film in The Big Lebowski or from the action figures of her that are sold in some novelty stores.
