amy ratcliffe


This weeks quick fire questions guest is Amy Ratcliffe from Geekwithcurves.com.  Apart from her blog she also contributes to the official Star Wars blog and has had her work published on IGN, L.A. Times Hero Complex and ScienceFiction.com to name just a few.

Right lets fire the questions.

You're stuck in a swamp on Dagobah.  What one movie, TV show, album and book would you take?
Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back, Firefly, some Disney song collection, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

If you could invite any three people (alive or not, fictitious or not) to a dinner party, who would they be?
Stephen Maturin (from Patrick O'Brian's books), Ahsoka Tano, and Starbuck (from the new BSG).

What is your favourite John Williams soundtrack?
Star Wars: A New Hope, specifically Binary Sunset.

If you were invisible for a day what would be the first thing you would do?
Join the FBI and help spy for an important mission.

When was the last time you cried?
Yesterday. I cry at everything.

What is your biggest fear?
Any water that animals and fish already live in. The ocean = death to me.

What was the most embarrassing moment of your life?
I asked THE cute boy of my junior class out in high school and got shot down and later heard him talking to people about it and not being cool.

Excluding search engines, what three website would you choose if no other websites were available?
Twitter, Tumblr, and Blogger.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Yes! I like to watch period dramas.

What are you looking forward to the most in the next six months?
Moving back to my home state of Ohio and not sitting in two hours of traffic every day.

What is your most treasured possession?
My Star Wars art collection. It has sentimental value more than anything else, and it makes me happy. Unless my cat counts as a possession - if so, it's him.

What is your biggest regret?
This is not going to be popular, but I regret spending tons of money on and being in debt for a seemingly useless college degree. It could prove to be worth it at some point in my life but not yet.

What are you most proud of?
I'm proud that I've chased my writing dream in my free hours and am slowly making progress to it becoming my full time gig.

What is your favourite Spielberg movie?
Jurassic Park

Where can people keep in touch or follow you?
On Twitter and my blog, www.geekwithcurves.com

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? 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 TheIndyExperience.com 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 the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
