  • GeekBomb: Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes Edition!

    You might have noticed a suspicious absence of GeekBombs on the site lately. That's mainly because the last one I was working on blew up in my face, scarring half of my visage and leaving me with a marred silver dollar that I now use to make decisions with, and the flips just haven't been…
  • GeekBomb: The Academy Awards + The Geek = Bad Bedfellows

    The Oscars are just not a geek's friend, and you know it as well as I do. Just look at the number of posts and people there are out there bitching that The Dark Knight wasn't nominated for Best Picture, or that a movie like Wall-E just gets relegated to the Best Animated Feature Film…
  • AMC Wants You To See All Five Best Picture Nominated Films In One Day

    Are you way behind on your movie watching? The Oscars are approaching faster than you think. In case you hadn't realized, they're on this Sunday. Still haven't seen Milk, Frost/Nixon, The Reader, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, or Slumdog Millionaire? Not doing anything this Saturday? Well then, you're in luck. If you have $30…
  • GeekBomb: Clive Owen, International Man Of Mystery

    I can still remember the first time I saw Clive Owen in a movie. It was around 2000 and the film was called Croupier, and Owen starred as a struggling writer trying to write a soccer novel, and ends up turning back to his old life as a "croupier," or dealer, in a casino in…
  • GeekBomb: The Enduring Legacy Of Point Break

    It's been 18 years since Point Break premiered, which is hard enough to believe in itself, but what's even stranger is the staying power this movie has. In fact, just this past weekend, two of my friends went to go see Point Break Live! in Los Angeles, which is a comedic take on the film,…
  • GeekBomb: The Rise And Fall Of The Drive-In Movie Theater

    Sometime in the 1970s, my older cousin and her husband took me and a neighbor girl to a drive-in theater in Texas, and I still remember how amazing it was to be watching a movie from the back of a station wagon. I mean, you're sitting there in a car, watching a movie and listening…
  • GeekBomb: A History Of Friday The 13th, Real And Fictional

    It's been Friday the 13th all day, can you tell? Here in Los Angeles, it's pouring down rain and the forecast is calling for it to continue doing that for several days. I've seen two black cats this morning, narrowly avoided walking under a ladder, and nearly dropped my shaving mirror. That's not a highly…
  • GeekBomb: Movies About Fanboys

    The Merriam-Webster Dictionary added the word "fanboy" last year, and they list its first usage as 1919. Sadly, they don't provide any examples for that usage. Curly Lambeau founded the Green Bay Packers that year in Wisconsin, but I don't think he had throngs of fanboys around him just yet. For the record, Merriam-Webster defines…
  • GeekBomb: The Enduring Legacy Of The Pink Panther

    It saddens me to think that there are going to be generations of kids soon who will think The Pink Panther refers to "those Steve Martin movies." It's enough to make Peter Sellers spin in his grave, and he would undoubtedly be none too pleased with someone else inhabiting one of roles that he created…
