George Lucas Indiana Jones 5

Earlier today it was confirmed that Disney is working on a fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise. I wondered on Twitter if creator George Lucas would be creatively involved in the next adventure, or if it would be the same kind of arrangement as the Star Wars saga. I started to explore the subject in a mini-blog which was originally going to appear in Page 2, but it quickly grew into something larger, which is why its being presented as a stand-alone feature.

Do I know if George Lucas will be involved in Indiana Jones 5? No. I’m not even sure some of the key members involved with the creative team could tell you for sure at this point. But in the blog post after the jump I will explore the question through speculation (read: rumors) and another excuse to dive back into the development rumors surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I also attempt to answer the question of whether or not Chris Pratt will play Indiana Jones in the new film. All this and more in my George Lucas Indiana Jones 5 blog.

2015 Summer Movie Wager

Its that time of year again. Jeff Cannata (formerly of the Totally Rad Show, now host of DLC, We Have Concerns and co-host of the /Filmcast) has thrown down the gauntlet, and once again challenged /Film to compete with him in what has become an annual tradition: the Summer Movie Wager. Every year in the past I would make a guest appearance on the Totally Rad Show for this segment, but with that show now disbanded we have taken on the job of hosting this contest on /Film. This is the ninth annual edition of this contest.

This year the contest includes David Chen (his first time) Germain Lussier (with a write-in ballot), Jeff Cannata and myself in a game is to decide what will be the highest grossing films of the Summer. It’s a free-for-all; the person with the best score wins. But it isn’t just that easy — not only do the participants need to predict what 10 films will be the highest grossing films domestically, but we need to place them in order. After the jump you can listen to the full episode of the show with our predictions.

Los Pollos Hermanos

I’ve been in Albuquerque New Mexico for a couple set visits, and while I’ve driven by some Breaking Bad locations, I’ve still never been to Twisters, the fast food restaurant that was the filming location for the show’s fictional fried-chicken fast-food chain Los Pollos Hermanos. I’ve seen tons of photos from fans visiting the location and have always wanted to take a detour there but its yet to happen.

Well, it looks like I might not need to go back to Albuquerque to visit Los Pollos Hermanos, as Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan revealed during his Reddit AMA that discussions are ongoing to turn Los Pollos Hermanos restaurant into a real fast food chain.

Eli Roth Restaurant Dogs Short Film

I first discovered filmmaker Eli Roth at the Boston Film Festival in 2003. Its not that his debut Cabin Fever was incredible, but it demonstrated a new and interesting voice. And for whatever the film lacked, Roth made up with his hour-long question and answer session that followed the screening. Roth, like Kevin Smith and Robert Rodriguez, is full of interesting and funny stories about the making of his films and his discovery of movies.

One of the stories Roth told that night involved his college thesis short film, a Reservoir Dogs homage/parody titled Restaurant Dogs starring a cast of fast food characters doing things so wrong that would never be seen again. Or so I thought. The film was nominated for a Student Academy Award in 1995, and won its division, but has remained one of those talked-about shorts that has never showed up online. Until now. Watch the Eli Roth Restaurant Dogs short film after the jump now.
