Beware The Wookiee With A Camera

Peter Mayhew, who not only played the hirsute Chewbacca in the Star Wars franchise, but who also has a pretty keen sense of humor (you'd have to, to be internationally famous yet no one knows what you really look like or sound like), recently posted to his Twitter account a number of old behind-the-scenes photographs he's taken while working on the original trilogy, adding witty captions to them that make them even more one-of-a-kind.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: Ranger

Republibot 4.0's picture

Here is a nicely done film of the story of Beren and Luthien, from J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Silmarillion."  The tale is nicely adapted and thought-provoking. The acting, costumes, and cinematography are all pretty good, almost professional quality.  Most of the special effects are well made, especially the cloak of invisibility, but the dragon looks like an overgrown wind-up toy.  I would also have preferred a sword with a little more heft to its blade.

Between The Darkness And The Light

I live in the infamous Northeast Corridor, where men are so civilized that they no longer have the ability to make fire.  Last night at around 3 AM, our electricity went out, with the outdoor temperatures hovering around zero.  Believe me, a post-apocalyptic world is ten seconds on the other side of a downed powerline.
