Lucasfilm And Bonnie Burton Go Separate Ways

Bonnie Burton the editor and writer broke the news today that Lucasfilm have laid her off.  I normally have a non-negative feel to this website especially towards anything related to The Bearded Trio such as Lucasfilm and Star Wars but this decision by Lucasfilm just doesn't make sense.  The content and the twitter account were just perfect.  Bonnie's updates were informative and you could tell this was a passionate fan writing to passionate fans.  The Twitter account hasn't been updated since the fifth of May and I feel that this hasn't done any good to their account and reputation.  Why mess with something that isn't broken?  Star Wars on Twitter was so interactive with all its fans.  Considering how big Star Wars is, it still managed to tweet content from us bloggers and fans which would make you feel like you are part of the Star Wars universe.  I hope this aspect will continue but I am really puzzled by Lucasfilms decision.  I have always enjoyed her writing and especially look forward to her column in the SFX magazine every month.  I hope she will find something ultimately as rewarding.

  1. Lucas, as the Lord, works in misterious ways... And, quite frankly, I sometimes feel as disappointed as Sheldon Cooper regarding SW.

I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
