  • Indiana Jones will not recast Indiana Jones!!!
  • Dragon’s Lair the Movie???

hatsHats, hats, hats. They protect us from the elements. They are worn in certain religious ceremonies. They are even worn to cover up thinning hair, bald spots or a bald freak like me. More importantly, without realizing this simple fact, hats were and still are a form of social status. Try to imagine Indiana Jones without the famous Fedora and instead wore a stove top hat or a simple baseball cap. The hat really defines, shapes and becomes part of the character. From the collage above you can see just from a few examples how much of an impact hats have on our favorite heroes and villains.

However, there is one rant that I need to get off my chest.  League of Extraordinary Gentleman (LXG) had the character of Dr. Jeckyll/Mr. Hyde. When Jeckyll changed to the Hulk like creature of Hyde, he was seen wearing a top hat with shreds of his formal suit. So, my question, why does Jeckyll’s top hat also gets bigger? The shreds of the formal suit makes sense because Hyde is much larger than Jeckyll but that hat crap really bothers me. 

‘nuff said.

This Halloween, lose the pirate makeup. Last year, people forgave your inappropriate comments because you were in character, but we’re way beyond World’s End now, at least until Johnny Depp begins making the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

Instead, here are seven hot costumes for fans of genre movies that you can pull together yourself. (Today, guys. Tomorrow, girls.) Click on the links to get detailed costume information.

The Joker. Yeah, you could spend nearly 800 bucks for an elaborate Dark Knight Batman get-up, but it’s the bad guy who will be popular at the parties this year, thanks to Heath Ledger’s Oscar-worthy performance as the Joker. Although you can buy a pre-packaged costume with a face mask and all, it’s pretty simple to slap this one together at the last minute-—also thanks to the way Heath played the part. Just dab on some clown makeup, smear some lipstick around your mouth, get a bad dye job and find some vintage ’70s disco togs, and you’ve got the entire ensemble. Why be so serious?

As I was looking on the ‘net, I found this tidbit about IJ5 which is not to be confused with ID4.

George Lucas told SCI FI Wire that preliminary research has begun on a story for a possible fifth Indiana Jones movie, but added that such a film is one of dozens of potential projects currently crowding his schedule.

“It sits on the shelf there as one of 50 projects that I have to deal with,” Lucas said in an interview on Aug. 4 at his Big Rock Ranch in San Rafael, Calif., where he was promoting the upcoming computer-animated feature film Star Wars: The Clone Wars. “And if I can come up with a story …”

But, Lucas added: “It’s very hard to come up with stories for that thing. You know, It’s really impossible. Because it has to be real. I has to be something that actually happened. It has to be something people know about. It has to be supernatural. It’s a really difficult research project. Which they’re researching now. You know, and last time it took 14 years. So … ”

Lucas was referring to this summer’s fourth Indiana Jones film, subtitled The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which was in development for more than a decade before the pieces finally came together.

In recent press interviews, Lucas has said that the three principals–himself, director Steven Spielberg and star Harrison Ford–all have to agree on the idea for a fifth film to move forward. He has also said that Spielberg is more amenable to the idea of a further installment than he was last time around.
