Arrow Jedi: Episode CCXIX
After seeing this fight sequence in Episode 219 of Arrow, I thought it would look pretty nifty as a lightsaber duel. So here it is! Lots of other Star Wars references (blasters, mouse droids, Ewoks, and even an appearance from a famous droid at the end).
Arrow Jedi: Episode CCCIII
This one is a lightsaber duel between Thea Queen and Malcolm Merlyn from the ‘Corto Maltese’ Arrow Season 3 episode. See if you can spot or hear some Star Wars easter eggs.
Pictionary with Martin Short, Jerry Seinfeld and Miranda Sings
“Talk of the Town” with Jiminy Glick and Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon sits down with legendary Hollywood host Jiminy Glick to talk about Saturday Night Live, donuts, and Justin Timberlake.
7 Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know About Die Hard!
Armed with these facts, you’ll be ready to take on a skyscraper full or terrorists, with or without shoes. Don’t forget to pay attention, or Alan Rickman will crash your office Christmas party (Actually, that sounds awesome. Never mind).
Jurassic Park World Trailer – Look Familiar? Edition
Hmmmm… the new Jurassic Park movie looks oddly familiar.
Guardians of the Galaxy – You Think You Know Comics?
Think Star-Lord is a ’70s rock band? Don’t know Gamora from the Gamorrean Guard? Better check out this new episode of You Think You Know Comics? featuring the Guardians of the Galaxy!
John Constantine: Hellblazer – The Soul Play
WATCH THROUGH THE CREDITS!
Made for a fraction of the cost of a single FX shot of the Constantine TV show, by talented Midlands based creators working for no pay, this all swearing, all smoking, all grifting tale of John Constantine is set in the Vertigo Hellblazer continuity, months after Peter Milligan’s final issue, and, we think, features the most accurate portrayal of Constantine yet put to screen.
Made as a rallying cry for fans of the Hellblazer book to get behind, The Sole Play is our effort to shake some sense into DC-Vertigo, with the simple message BRING BACK HELLBLAZER! (and if they could see themselves hiring Si Spurrior as the writer, all the better).
Disney Movies Anywhere – “Jingle Bells” Mashup
Disney Movies Anywhere is celebrating the holidays with all-new heartwarming music video mashups set to classic holiday songs.
That’s all for today, folks! Be sure to check back tomorrow for more movie-related geekery.
Today’s picks have been brought to you by: Dave Jones, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, CineFix, Fatawesome, Mike Swiatek, ComicsAlliance, Waking Dream Studios and MOVIECLIPS Trailers.
