Indian Robot Rampage

I ran across this clip from the Indian science fiction film clip that is ASTOUNDING!!!!!

I’ve seen two spellings for the name of the flick – Enthiran and Endhiran. The Indian to English translation for both those words must be Awesome!

If you can watch this with a straight face, count me impressed.  I grinned, giggled and guffawed while watching.

Movie Macguffins

squirrel directorI ran across this post at Paste Magazine and had to share.

It’s the top nine movie macguffins of all time.

What, you don’t know what a macguffin is? Yes, you do. You’ve seen it in all sorts of movies, but may not have realized it.

It’s not something you can order from the McDonald’s breakfast menu.

The Ark of the Covenant, the Holy Grail and Marcellus Wallace’s suitcase are just a few from the macguffin list.

A macguffin is the ultimate destination of every chase. Not every movie gets there, but all the characters are in pursuit of the macguffin.

Here’s the actual definition from Paste –

Mac•guff•in: In cinema vernacular, an object of great importance that serves as the primary motivator for the protagonists, and their antagonists.

The list of movies they’ve compiled is filled with several of my favorites. They’ve got video clips from each movie over there too.


Freaky Penguins

I know Newscoma has been on a penguin kick of late and I’ve brought you a bit of Pen Zen with a link to the 24-hour camera at the Tennessee Aquarium and even flying penguins, but today I present what may be the freakiest penguins ever captured on film.

Nobody sees the rest of the world the same way the Bollywood directors do, that’s for certain.


Bollywood Goes Sci Fi

Who doesn’t love a little Bollywood romance and dance, and when you throw in the smooth moves we all know and love – yes, the Robot – how can it be a bad thing.

It’s not. It’s a sight to behold.

In addition to retro dance moves, the movie “Love Story 2050” also features fashions from the 1980s, at least according to this video trailer for the flick.

Going global

Another cool montage. This one of foreign language films.

Newscoma and I dig Fellini and Kurosawa flicks. Everytime Toshiro Mifune or something from Tin Drum or La Strada popped on the screen, we oooohhed and aaahhhed.
