Amazon is offering The O.C. – The Complete Series for 59% off as the Deal of the Day. The four season box set which normally retails for $179.98, can be purchased for only $72.99, a savings of $106.99. Okay, I’ll admit – The O.C. isn’t exactly geek material. And yes, the last two seasons were extremely bad. But there were a couple geek moments. For instance, the moment (embedded below) from Episode 14 where Seth (Adam Brody) reenacts the Spider-Man upside-down kiss with Summer (Rachel Bilson). And how can anyone forget George Lucas’ painful to watch cameo, where he played himself (the only video I could find online is in Spanish).

I never got a chance to see Paris, je t’aime, but the idea always seemed appealing to me. While I live in probably the greatest city in the States – San Francisco, Manhattan has always been my favorite big screen city setting. New York, I Love You will screen as a work in progress at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival, and is expected to hit theaters in mid-february 2009.

I don’t know about you guys but I’m beginning really getting excited for Doug Liman’s Jumper.
Jumper is an epic sci-fi action film starring Hayden Christensen, Jamie Bell, Rachel Bilson and Samuel L. Jackson. Set in the future, Jumper is about a race of people called Jumpers who have the ability to teleport, and another ancient race who are out to kill them all (Want to know more about the film? Click here).
I’m not a huge fan of Christensen (when an actor ruins your favorite movies from your childhood, it tends to put a bad taste in your mouth), but the effects look pretty cool, and from the look of it, the mythology behind the story has potential to lead to a great sci-fi film. And you have to love the tagline “Anywhere is possible.” And let’s not forget that Liman has created some really great films in the past including: Go and The Bourne Identity (we’ll try to forget Mr. & Mrs. Smith ever happened).

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Fox wasn’t prepared to premiere material at Comic-Con, because, they claimed, everything was in such an “early” not ready for prime-time form. Yet 10-days later they have launched the official Jumper website, and have released four production photos from the 1992 Steven Gould sci-fi novel adaptation.
A genetic anomaly allows a young man (Hayden Christensen) to teleport himself anywhere. He discovers this gift has existed for centuries and finds himself in a war that has been raging for thousands of years between ‘Jumpers’ and those who have sworn to kill them (Samuel L Jackson). Rachel Bilson plays David’s childhood friend and also his crush. Jamie Bell plays Griffin, a Jumper who has fought and evaded Paladins since his childhood. And Diane Lane as Mary Rice, the mother of David who abandoned her son when he was five years old.
Doug Liman (Go, The Bourne Identity, Swingers) directed the film based on a David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Blade) screenplay adaptation.
The website is pretty difficult and frustrating to navigate, so we have gathered the information for you below. I recommend reading it, as it certainly sucked me in. Looks like I might have to make a trip to the book store and by the book. Check out the photos followed by the information after the jump. As always, left click to enlarge the photos.
