Watch a Clip of Jean-Claude Van Damme as the Original Predator

Apr
09

A long time ago (although strangely not in a galaxy far, far away), Jean-Claude Van Damme was cast in Predator, as the Predator. This being the days before elaborate CGI characters, Van Damme was set to play the guy in the alien suit. Sadly for us (although very lucky for the actual film), Van Damme had no idea he had to wear a bulky, heavy suit, and quit the production. On the bright side, video footage of the actor in action have emerged online, and to describe it in one word: lobster.

Jodorowsky's Dune, The Psychedelic SciFi Epic That Wasn't [Movie Review]

Apr
06

Alejandro Jodorowsky's scrapped Dune movie is the stuff of cult-film legend, and for good reason; not only was the source novel a bizarre blend of psychedelia, colonialism, and mysticism, Jodorowsky had also assembled an all-star cast of weirdos and luminaries, the likes of Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, and Pink Floyd, for starters. Frank Pavich's 2013 documentary of the project is a gleeful, if somewhat overly hyperbolic love-letter that brings us as close as we'll ever come to that fantastic dream.
