/Film's Ultimate 2014 Film Geek Holiday Gift Guide

Welcome to /Film’s Ultimate 2014 Film Geek Holiday Gift Guide. We hope we can help you find gifts for your pop culture-loving loved ones and friends (or, maybe even yourself).

This guide includes a ton of cool gifts, including a wide range of books, graphic novels, toys, collectibles, music, movies, games, art and other fun gifts, the majority of which were released this year. I’ve also tried to include a wide range of prices, from small stocking stuffers to blu-ray box sets to huge expensive collectibles for most of us to drool over. Everything included in the guide is something I either recommend, have been recommended by trusted friends, colleagues and readers, or something that just looks damn cool.

We published the list in parts over Thanksgiving list, but since a lot of people were on vacation and just starting their Holiday shopping, I thought now would be a good time to post the guide in full. Hit the jump to find all the different sections of our Holiday Gift Guide.

Lego Goonies diorama 1

The Internet has taught us lots of things. Cats play keyboards, Charlie bit me and fans want Goonies Lego sets. It feels like month after months, you see images of fan made Lego creations based on the 1985 Richard Donner film. One even got 10,000 votes on the Lego Ideas website and could, potentially get made.

While we wait for that to – maybe – happen, you can check out a stunning, detailed, huge Goonies Lego diorama that was at Brickcon 2014. It includes the Walsh house, jail house, Fratelli’s restaurant, and several of the underground passages such as the piano room and more. Check it out below, along with a few new Lego Ideas projects.

Bill Hader Skeleton Twins

A spin around the TV dial is almost guaranteed to turn up at least one appearance by Bill Hader. Whether it be his memorable stint on Saturday Night Live, smaller film roles in Judd Apatow comedies, leading roles in Greg Mottola comedies, adding voices to Edgar Wright movies, writing South Park episodes, or a commercial for his wonderful new drama The Skeleton Twins, Hader seems to be everywhere. And that’s a good thing. The guy is talented and funny, and a huge film fan.

In the book “Poking a Dead Frog: Conversations With Today’s Top Comedy Writers” by Mike Sacks, Hader contributed his own list of “200 Essential Movies Every Comedy Writer Should See.” It pretty safe to say, though, you don’t have to be a comedy writer to appreciate these gems. Some are obvious, some not, but it’s a fun list even just as a jumping off point for a debate.

Below, check out the list of Hader’s 200 Essential Comedies and even watch him talk about it. Read More »

The Goonies Playing Cards

Albino Dragon has teamed up with illustrator Nat Iwata to create a deck of The Goonies playing cards. They somehow have secured the license from Warner Bros and are trying to bring the deck to life with the help of Bicycle and the United States Playing Card Company. After the jump, you can see some of the early (pending approval) card and box designs.

JJ Abrams mystery box

Remember JJ Abrams‘ Mystery Box? I’m not talking about the metaphorical construct of the filmmaker’s movies and television shows, but the box that sits on a shelf in JJ’s office. Abrams famously told the story of the mystery box during his TED Talk (embedded after the jump if somehow you’ve never seen it). When Abrams was a kid, his grandfather would often bring him to a magic store in Manhattan and buy him tricks. One visit, Harry Kelvin bought little JJ a “mystery magic box” which was supposed to contain $50 of magic for only $15, a magical grab bag. JJ loved the idea of the mystery box and ended up never opening it. It has gone on to become a metaphor for what he loves about movies and the stories he tells.

Tannen’s Magic was the store to go to back in the day, but now Theory 11 is the new cool place to go to for magic and playing cards. So today Theory 11 and JJ Abrams have announced a collaboration on a mystery box of Bad Robot playing cards. Not only that, but a limited edition wooden mystery box with the same question mark logo that graces the box sitting on JJ’s office shelf. Find out more information on the cards and this incredible box, after the jump.

I’ve become a big board gamer in recent years, but we don’t really cover board games on /Film aside from big screen adaptations like Battleship or the occasional mention in Page 2. Every once in a while we’ll cover a board game with a big movie or television license (like we did with Firefly: The Board Game) much in the same way we do with video game sequels of movies (Ripley’s Daughter is the Star of Survival Horror Game ‘Alien: Isolation’).

Two kickstarters came across my attention recently that I’d like to highlight – Cinelinx – A Card Game For People Who Love Movies and a a cinematic science fiction board game called Chaosmos. Hit the jump to find out more about both games.
