lucas museum

Melissa Harris from ChicagoTribune.com is reporting that the problems George Lucas and his museum dream is getting from local preservationists is over nothing more than parking lots.

The great irony is that a litigious group of local preservationists is waging a legal battle to protect parking lots ... from an art museum.

Not to mention, it's well-funded by Star Wars creator George Lucas, replete with one of the world's finest collections of Norman Rockwell illustrations, movie posters and cutting-edge digital illustrations and fine art.

Friends of the Parks, meanwhile, is living in a land of fairies and other magical creatures.

No matter how often or how loudly the group's leaders call for more green space, if this museum isn't built between Soldier Field and the city's convention center, those parking lots are never going to be anything other than they are now: a concrete dock for Bears tailgaters to guzzle beers and grill bratwurst a few Sundays a year.

Two months ago today, production was wrapped on the final episode of Falling Skies, the TNT/DreamWorks/Amblin TV-series that will end it's five year run this coming summer.

A shot before the Special Effects are added

Not much is known about the final season, other than that it will consist of 10 episodes and that they will air on TNT,somewhere during next Summer.


In an interview, Drew Roy only shared a small teaser: "In this final season we, as most everybody tries to do,wrap up what we have laid down. We are in the process of taking all the little strands, bringing them back together, and tying something up. Hopefully we'll have a decent looking bow at the end."


Actor Doug Jones in his Cochise make-up

Filming for this final season hasn't been easy however. In September production was shut down for a short period of time after one of the security guards was killed on set, when one of the trucks, used in the production, went rogue.

One of the last images to be released was this, behind the scenes, shot above where it was hinted that the finale might take place in a winter-surrounding.
Shooting can be exhausting...

And even though all of the cast and crew members knew they were filming the last season, none of the tweets that were released the last few months showed sad people. The general impression is that it is better to end the show where you can finish the story, than let someone pull the plug, during a season.
Check Mate(s)

So only a few months and we will know what will happen to the survivors of Second Mass.


Here's a (very) little tease.

Happy birthday to Julain Glover who turns the grand old age of 80 today.  Julian is most famous for playing General Veers in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Walter Donovan in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.  He has also been in James Bond (For Your Eyes Only) and recently in the popular HBO series, Game of Thrones.  It seems when it comes to his acting career....he chose wisely.

Happy Birthday Julian

big bang theory skywalker ranch

The Big Bang Theory Has A Skywalker Ranch Episode

An upcoming episode of the extremely popular series, The Big Bang Theory will see Sheldon, Leonard and the gang trying to break into Skywalker Ranch to try and grab a glimpse of their idols, mainly George Lucas.  The show returns on April 2nd.

"When Leonard and Sheldon are invited to speak at UC Berkeley, they take a detour to try to meet an idol. Also, when Bernadette and Howard battle over the fate of his Dr. Who TARDIS, Raj and Amy offer to settle the dispute with a game of ping pong."

Guest stars include actor Tate Ellington as Mitchell and actors Michael Dempsey and Mark Barrett, who will play security guards.

It will be interesting to see how they do it and if Skywalker Ranch is actually used.  If you like the sound of this then I would recommend  Kyle Newman's Fanboys where we see a group of Star Wars fans trying to break into Skywalker Ranch to get an early viewing of Star Wars Episode One.

After 1993 Jurassic Park remained still very hot. Not only as a book and film, but also to scientists. That led to The Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park Exhibition that eventually came to Holland in 1995.
It was an exhibition that used a few props from the film and added some scientific information on the various dinosaurs and their habits.



Below you can find a few pictures that survived over the years, just to get you all in the mood for later this year (if that were needed at all).


My favorite Vegisaur


No film stars yet, but that was about to change



We all know who was responsible for this...



Not a kitchen in sight.

ready player one steven spielberg

Steven Spielberg Set For The Virtual World

Deadline have reported that Steven Spielberg is to return to sci-fi and direct a movie based on a book by Ernest Cline.  The name if the movie is 'Ready Player One.'  As you can guess from the title the story is based in a virtual world.

The other big news is that this will see Steven Spielberg returning to Warner Bros after fourteen years.  The last was A.I. Artificial Intelligence in 2001.  This of course will heighten speculation of who Dreamworks will be teaming up with their distribution deal once Disney's contract ends next year.  Could Warner Bros be the new leader?

“We are thrilled to welcome Steven back to Warner Bros,” said Greg Silverman, the studio’s President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production. “We had an historic series of collaborations in the 1980s and 1990s and have wanted to bring him back for years.”

The book takes place in 2044 and follows the story of a virtual reality game creator who offers up his entire company to the best player who can find an Easter egg in one of his many virtual worlds via a game called OASIS. A teen player named Wade Watts decides to take it on after millions have failed over many decades. The key to winning the game is a plethora of pop culture clues from generations before. Whomever figures it out and wins the game (without having their avatars killed in the process) takes over the entire OASIS empire.

Don't be surprised if this news changes from 'Steven Spielberg to direct' to 'Steven Spielberg set to be executive producer.'

Stay tuned.  Read the full article from Deadline here.

Wagon Train is a western TV-series that was first aired in the US from 1957-1965.


After this period Universal kept re-editing numerous episodes, to shorten them, for re-runs on local TV-stations. They kept on doing so until the early 70's, and during this period Steven gathered his first expertise on commercial editing, working as an assistant editor on the re-edits for this show. For his editing works he received no credit, since the episodes themselves already existed, but who are we to disbelief the man ? Here's a little clip to get in the mood.
