There’s no doubt that one of the most iconic scenes in Pulp Fiction is when Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta confront Brett and his friends to retrieve a briefcase with an unknown object inside. In the scene, Jackson takes it upon himself to take a bite out of Brett’s cheeseburger, which he says they got from a place called Big Kahuna Burger, described as a Hawaiian burger joint. Now one YouTube cook has taken it upon himself to make a “tasty burger” inspired by the one that Jackson takes a bite of in Pulp Fiction.

Right now you can catch Ryan Gosling singing and dancing with Emma Stone in La La Land in wider release, and Martin Scorsese’s Silence is playing in some theaters as well. Therefore, Mondo thought this would be a good time to release a new print from one of Ryan Gosling’s recent acclaimed film, and one of Martin Scorsese’s films from the previous decade.
Mondo has unveiled a new print for Drive by artist Rory Kurtz, with that signature hot pink hue worked in there smoothly, and they also have a pair of prints from Jonathan Burton for The Aviator, the biopic about Howard Hughes. They’re both fantastic in their own way, and you can check them out after the jump. Read More »
Perhaps the most fascinating prospect about the advancement of virtual reality in recent years is that it will allow us to explore some of the fictional worlds that we love so much. While this may not be as easy with some of the older films we love, new movies are creating VR experiences that go hand-in-hand with the stories that we’ll see told on the big screen. However, one software engineer decided to take it upon himself to recreate the set from one classic sci-fi movie in virtual reality.
The original Blade Runner is known for its depiction of a seedy futuristic Los Angeles that combines fictional technology with the visual style of a classic film noir. The apartment of Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is one of the best examples of the film noir style and production design, and software engineer Quentin Lengele has recreated it in virtual reality so that you can walk around the apartment as if you were dropping by to give Deckard a hard time.

Gallery 1988 has already played host to “An Art Show About Nothing,” which was actually a tribute to Seinfeld, the NBC sitcom which was famously about nothing. Now they’re back with “Another Art Show About Nothing,” featuring all new artwork inspired by the series created by Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David.
Artists like Barry Blankenship, Joshua Roman, Luke Flowers, Jerrod Maryurama, Jeremy Berkley, Geoff Trapp, Erin Hunting, Dave Pryor and much more have crafted some incredible new pieces in honor of Seinfeld, and you can get your hands on them right now.

Over the last decade of /Film, we’ve tried to feature the latest geek collectibles, prints, books and toys alongside our regular coverage of movie and television news. Sometimes it has taken the form of a standalone “Cool Stuff” post, other times it was in a round up like Superhero Bits or the now defunct Page 2 and Toy Box. As it turns out, it’s very hard to commit to a daily or weekly round-up of this kind of things, especially when we don’t know when products worth writing about will be announced or released.
So the solution I came up with was to produce “Cool Stuff” round-ups on an organic semi-regular basis, determined solely by when enough cool products present themselves. After the jump, enjoy the first installment of the Cool Stuff round-up which includes Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Wars, John Williams, Pulp Fiction, Pixar, Jurassic Park, Rogue One and more. Think of it as a Christmas buying guide for geeks, but published all year round.
And if you don’t like this, please know this is all Adam Goldberg’s fault (apologies in advance to Adam’s wife for any purchases that are made because of this).

Hopefully you had a Christmas that resulted in getting a pile of goodies from your closest family and friends. But maybe you got some extra spending money sitting in your pocket after exchanging gifts with them and you’re looking for the best way to spend it. Chronicle Collectibles has you covered.
All dinosaurs are dead, and the closest you can get to having one is somehow digging one up from the Earth and piecing it together in skeletal form. Even then, it’ll probably end up going to some museum. But now you can get the next best thing in the form of a 1:1 scale Velociraptor head bust inspired by the dinosaur’s design from Jurassic Park.

Right now, the more we see of John Wick, the better, so the news of a John Wick comic is nothing but music to our ears. We’ll see the character’s eagerly-awaited return early next year in John Wick: Chapter 2. There’s already some talk, thank Heavens, of a John Wick: Chapter 3, but on the big screen isn’t the only place fans can find the dog lover, thanks to Dynamite Entertainment and Lionsgate Entertainment. They’re bringing the hit man to your local comic book store sometime next year.
Below, learn more about the John Wick comic.

It’s probably a safe bet that we’ll never see the return of Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore on the big screen as the original Ghostbusters. Not only have we lost one of the original cast members (RIP Harold Ramis), but the reboot has established itself as existing in an entirely different universe, despite the many similarities and borrowed elements between the reboot and the original, making a crossover essentially impossible. But that doesn’t mean we can get a Ghostbusters crossover elsewhere.
Comics publisher IDW has announced some of the forthcoming 2017 titles, and one of them is a Ghostbusters crossover that will see the original 1984 team meeting Erin Gilbert, Abby Yates, Jillian Holtzmann and Patty Tolan, the conductors of the metaphysical examination from the 2016 movie. Find out more about the Ghostbusters crossover comic below. Read More »

Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building and Loan! It’s that time of year when families sit down to watch It’s A Wonderful Life to feel good about what they have, which is something we all probably need after the gut punch that was the year 2016. If you’re a big fan of the holiday classic from director Frank Capra, then we have a print that you might want to frame on your wall.
Hero Complex Gallery has this timely new piece of art from Barret Chapman, immortalizing that iconic moment when George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart) tells Mary (Donna Reed) that he’ll lasso the moon to pull it down for her to have if that’s what she wants. Check out the beautiful It’s A Wonderful Life print after the jump. Read More »
It’s the Christmas season, which means you either love or hate the presence of the holiday comedy Jingle All the Way playing all over TV. The crass, commercial comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad desperately trying to get their hands on the popular fictional toy known as Turbo Man is goofy, slapsticky and just plain bad. But I still watch it every year and enjoy the hell out of it. I always laugh every time Schwarzenegger says, “Who told you you could eat my cookies?”
If you’re a fan of the movie and you’ve always wanted your own Turbo Man just for the hell of it, a new Kickstarter wants to make that possible. It’s a little pricey if you really want it to be Turbo Time at your house, but it just might be worth it. Find out details after the jump. Read More »
