This 8-Bit G.I. Joe Retaliation is Better Than the Film

I've been convinced for quite some time now that 8-bit video games can make just about anything in life better.  More proof of this has come in the form of this video, showing what the latest G.I. Joe film would be like in the form of an old NES game. 

Watch Atoms Create the Smallest Stop-Motion Short Ever

Some of you may wonder why we're highlighting this.  It's a very short stop-motion animated 'film' that by all accounts isn't animated very well and is pretty generic (it's a boy bouncing a ball).  If you were to watch this video with just that information, I'd understand your condescension...However, it's the materials used to create it that makes it so special.  Atoms...seriously, scientists literally pushed atoms around to make this video.

Is Disney Pinning Too Much On TRON: Legacy?

As hard as it may be to believe, while everyone here at TMP are massive movie geeks...we don't always agree on things (just look at the division on the Thor trailer).  What results are debates behind the scenes on some of the biggest movies coming out, so we've decided to share some of those arguments.  This time around we tackle the issue of TRON: Legacy.  Some of us believe that it will be the next big thing and defy all expectations, while others feel Disney may be putting too many of it's eggs into that hi-rez basket.

TMP Cinema Death Match: Dumbledore vs. Gandalf

Due to the recent release of the latest, and in my opinion greatest, Harry Potter film we thought it was only fitting for our next match to have two great wizards face off.  Therefore, this round will contain Harry Potter’s magical mentor Dumbledore and the Baggins’ confidante Gandalf.  Both are masters of their craft, and would make formidable foes in a “no holds barred” feud.

The best software to archive your movie collection…just in case

Like most movie enthusiasts, I have an extensive collection of movies. Unfortunately for me, I once had it stolen and it was a very traumatic episode.  I wish I had been more prepared for the event and to this day, I am still missing some titles. I was caught off guard and ill prepared to replace my collection because I did not have a written list of all the titles in my collection. It is a mistake I have not repeated. So, word to the wise, gather a comprehensive list. Compile a movie archive. Organize it in alphabetical order, by director, by genre, or by movie cover color. However you decide to do it...just do it.
