Terminator Salvation

Remember that Terminator movie they made with Arnold, where he was decked out as Jesus?  No?  Oh wait, that's because it's only something they SHOULD have made.  This little gem from MadTV shows what that might have looked like:

Now there's some real Terminator salvation.

Christopher Nolan responds to Aurora Tragedy

"Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of The Dark Knight Rises, I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community.

"I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting but that they were there last night to watch a movie. I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime.

"The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me.

"Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families."

- Christopher Nolan

Spectre VR returns - on the iPad

Remember Spectre VR?  The fabulous Tron-esque tank game from the 90's?  No?  Well, then this game probably won't do much for you, as the control system on this iPad port (placed in the center of the screen) make for great frustration.

However, if you DO remember this game from the 90's, there is at least some nostalgic enjoyment to be had  You can check it out here on the iTunes store.

Christopher Nolan sketches the conclusion to the trilogy

We are 2 weeks away from the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, and more than a little bit excited up on the mother ship.  This photo was published today from the set, showing director Christopher Nolan etching some kind of chalk symbol onto a wall:

Yes, yes... we all know what that symbol is.  But what does it mean?

What I love about this photo is it encapsulates the attention to detail with which Nolan has crafted the first two installments of his Batman franchise.  I cannot wait to see what he has in store for the conclusion.
