Which Director Should Be Attached To Direct Star Wars 7?

Well its only just been announced and already the talk is who should direct Star Wars 7?

Well the hot favourite is of course Joss Whedon who did a great job with a little known film called The Avengers. Guillermo Del Toro is another one who's past record with Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy would make a good choice. Will this open the door for Spielberg to finally direct a Star Wars movie? He was linked for a while to The Empire Strikes Back so this may be his second chance at getting into the Star Wars universe. In favour with Disney at the moment and most likely is Gore Verbinski who directed the Pirates Of The Caribbean movies, Rango and the upcoming Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp. What about Steve Moffat who wrote the latest Tin-Tin movie, brought us the fabulous Sherlock to our small screens and currently is responsible for the latest Doctor Who? So is no stranger to Sci-fi. At the very least he should help with the writing. Finally there's J.J Abrams. Wouldn't that a great story that the director of the latest Star Trek movies would also be responsible for the new Star Wars movies? Whatever happens lets just hope its not Michael Bay. We don't want over the top explosions with really close up shots so much so you can't see what's going on.

Who do you think will make a great director for the new Star Wars movies?

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
