My childhood came back to me in a wave as I watched the opening crawl of Star Wars: The Force Awakens yesterday morning. It’s like I’m a kid again, and someone has planted me back in this universe a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.
Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game is one of my all-time favorite books, and today the first trailer for the upcoming big-screen adaptation finally arrived, and it left me covered with goosebumps.

The travelling exhibit, “Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs”, is now on display at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, and it’s definitely an event worth checking out, especially for fans of art, history, or gold.
Indy is back for more, and this week he’s on DVD with the release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Hollywood gets serious about blockbusters this week with the return of a film icon people have been talking about for weeks. As anyone will tell you, Indiana Jones is back this weekend, and he has a lot to make up for after his nearly 20-year absence. With few other studios interested in taking on this huge franchise, there is really only one other film going up against Indy’s whip: Uwe Boll‘s latest disaster, Postal.
