One of the best fansites devoted to a film franchise is Stephen Clark's BTTF.com, a great resource for all things Back to the Future. While there aren't any new cinematic adventures of Marty McFly or Doc Brown being planned out, the door is slowing opening wider for new BTTF collectibles.Add a comment (0)

The Hunt for Gollum is a fan-created 40-minute film inspired by the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Directed and written by Chris Bouchard and filmed on location in North Wales, the project is a non-profit creation not endorsed by Tolkien's estate or New Line Cinema, the studio that released Peter Jackson's Rings trilogy. Just like all of the rest short films created by fans of franchises, there's no big budget or studio support behind The Hunt for Gollum -- but the recently released trailer shows that the creators are nevertheless making their film to a higher standard.Add a comment (3)

Let's imagine for a moment that video game technology right now was like it was back in the late 1980s. What would a Super Nintendo opening sequence for a video game based on The Dark Knight look like? Two guys by the name of Macbee (graphics) and Vic Sagerquist (sound) really wanted to know the answer to that question and so they sat down and designed this...

One of the creepiest moments in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining comes when the wife of Jack Nicholson's character (played by Shelley Duvall) discovers what her writer husband has been up to for all the time spent in their snowbound hotel: writing the same 10 words over and over and over again on hundreds of typewritten pages. "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." Guess what? Now you can read the book!Add a comment (10)

Twitter, the social networking website that emerged as a big phenom in 2008, has a new user on it that wants to keep you up-to-speed with the latest on their line-up of movies...except that they're not who they say they are. Someone created the Twitter account "foxmovies" and began twittering messages on December 29 about films being made by 20th Century Fox. Judging by what foxmovies is saying on Twitter it's pretty doubtful that they are connected to Fox in any way, shape or form.Add a comment (1)

He's considered by many to be the master of horror fiction and one of the publishing industry's biggest authors ever but when it comes right down to it, Stephen King likes to show that he's just a regular guy. In his latest weekly column for Entertainment Weekly, the author of The Stand, 'Salem's Lot, Christine and dozens of other bestselling novels tells us what flicks he enjoyed the most these past twelve months.Add a comment (3)
