Full Video Of Lucasarts' Full Throttle From Start To End

Following on from yesterday's blast from the past where we brought you a 30 minute video from Indiana Jones on the NES.  Today we bring you this full length 2 hour video of Lucasarts' Full Throttle from start to end.  Having problems getting the game to play on Windows 7?  Don't fancy doing the FMV sections again?  Well sit back and enjoy this full play through of the game and let those gaming memories return. A beginning to end play through of LucasArts' 1995 graphic adventure opus, Full Throttle. This game blew my mind when I first got it back in 1995. It combined the awesomeness of all of LucasArts' previous adventures (Sam n Max, Day of the Tentacle, Monkey Island...) and amped it up by several orders of magnitude. It's a fair amount shorter and easier than the company's earlier games, but it's drowning in personality, badassness, and general quality in every respect. If you ever had a passing interest in the "experience" of a

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (NES) Soundtrack In Stereo

Sit back and take yourself back to the retro 80's with this 30 minutes video playing the Indiana Jones soundtrack from the NES game, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.  The original game soundtrack was by Tim & Geoff Follin.  This will bring back memories and guaranteed to put a sentimental smile on your face. This is the OST to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (Taito) for the NES! But in Stereo! Which basically separates the sound channels and adds echo, or makes it in Stereo as I call it. So enjoy this soundtrack in what I like to call here with these soundtracks, WiiGuy's 8Bit Stereo!!

Jake Johnson Confirmed For Jurassic World

Jake Johnson has confirmed his involvement in Jurassic World in several interviews.  First with Huffington Post and then with Vulture.  He had been rumoured for some time but he himself has now confirmed his involvement.  Jake Johnson has worked with Colin Trevorrow before with the 2012 "Safety Not Guaranteed."  In the Vulture interview he said: So you’re in Jurassic World. I haven’t shot it yet. I shoot at the end of July. If you get to interact with dinosaurs, which one do you want? Probably the T. Rex, but what I’m really excited about is the director, Colin Trevorrow, directed me in Safety Not Guaranteed. And the writer of that movie [Derek Connolly] did a rewrite on Jurassic World. That movie we did for, I think it was $600,000 up in Seattle, a 20-day shoot. I loved it. So to do that and now be doing Jurassic World together, it just feels like a fun jump. In the Huffington Post he described his like for the Jurassic Park series and in particular working with C

Industrial Light & Magic Vancouver Brings 70 New Jobs

The recently announced Vancouver branch of Industrial Light and Magic brings job opportunities for those talented and lucky enough to work in the FX industry.  70 new employees will have the opportunity to work for the FX giants and work on movies such as Jurassic World, Star Trek and a little movie called Star Wars VII. It’s great news for the Vancouver visual effects industry, but it might create shortages of qualified staff, said Brent Greening, senior instructor of visual effects at Vancouver Film School. “This is going to have an impact in Vancouver and B.C. because it’s showing that even the big boys want to play here. ILM has been around for 30 years or more. They did the first Star Wars and they’re pioneers in the visual effects world,” Greening said. So for them to set up shop here and to make a go of it using the talent from Vancouver is phenomenal.” “I can see there being a shortage (of qualified workers) in the future if we don’t do something about it,” Greening s

Why are you asking me this?”  Luke: “I have no memory of my mother. I never knew her.” The above dialog is absolutely, positively, one of the most poignant and emotional moments of the entire Star Wars Saga.

Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern will not be In Jurassic World. BD Wong Returning.

Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern will not be returning for the fourth film in the franchise, ‘Jurassic World’. The Director of the much anticipated dino adventure, Colin Trevorrow said in an interview with IGN yesterday. "I know a lot of fans want to see the original characters back. They’re iconic. But I respect those actors too much to shoehorn them into this story for my own sentimental reasons,” "Jurassic Park isn’t about the bad luck of three people who keep getting thrown into the same situation. The only reason they’d go back to that island is if the screenwriters contrived a reason for them to go.” Remember the scientist from the first Jurassic Park who kind of gives the main cast the tour?  The character was Dr. Henry Wu played by BD Wong.  Well he has been confirmed as a returning character.  In the original novel he has a much larger part and Trevorrow is eager to use him more. "He had a much larger role in the original novel, he was

Ivan Reitman Leaves Ghostbusters 3. Begins Shooting In 2015.

v There's good news and bad news for Ghostbusters 3.  The good news is Sony Pictures has announced plans to begin shooting the film in New York City in early 2015, Deadline reports. The bad news is director Ivan Reitman has dropped out of the project in the wake of Ramis's death last month.  Production will continue however with Reitman helping the producers (Amy Pascal) find a new director. Digital Spy reports: Reitman has revealed that the final script for the upcoming film is one that went through several iterations in order to please Aykroyd, Ramis and Bill Murray, who has apparently not agreed to do the film.  He said: "It's a version of Ghostbusters that has the originals in a very minor role... When I came back from Harold's funeral, it was really moving and it made me think about a lot of things.  "I just finally met with Amy and Doug Belgrad when I got back. I said I'd been thinking about it for weeks, that I'd rather just prod

Steven Spielberg's Shoah Foundation Marks Its 20th Year

The foundation that Steven Spielberg founded after being inspired by Holocaust survivors he met while filming Schindler's List  is marking its 20th anniversary this year. The USC Shoah Foundation has collected the testimonies of 51,413 survivors in 34 languages from 58 countries - surpassing expectations Spielberg had when he created the foundation in 1994.  The scope of the foundation has grown to include those who have survived genocides in countries such as Rwanda, Cambodia, and Armenia. The foundation hosts a searchable digital archive used both for education and outreach.  Spielberg himself visits schools so he can share some of the collected testimonies with young people.  Admittedly, at first they're more interested in discussing movies, but their focus shifts as those testimonies are presented. Needless to say, that pleases Spielberg a great deal. “It just restored my real faith in all these new generations that at the core of all of their values, everybody

Industrial Light and Magic opens studio in Vancouver

ILM president Lynwen Brennan, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, ILM Chief Creative Office John Knoll, MLA Naomi Yamamoto, MP Ed Fast Industrial Light And Magic have opened it's latest studio.  This time in Gastown, Vancouver.  The site is an ex-Pixar 30,000-square foot studio.  Pixar vacated the building in October 2013. ILM president, Lynwen Brennan had this to say about the new building and to put fears to rest about the studio going the same way as previous residents, Pixar: "We're in very different businesses so the reason for Pixar leaving are very different than what would affect the visual effects industry," Brennan said at the ILM Vancouver office. "It's been well documented their reasons for leaving here was they wanted to consolidate production all in one place. So for us, we're actually needing more capacity. So what we're looking for at ILM is we need to grow, we need more artists, and we need talented artists." ILM chief c

1500 Hopefuls Audition For Extras Work On Jurassic World.

Um, they're flocking this way.  No, not a flock of Gallimimus like in Jurassic Park but 1500 locals from Lihue, Hawaii are hoping to get one of fifty background spots in the upcoming Jurassic World, directed by Colin Trevorrow. The Garden Island newspaper reported Monday that those who auditioned for "Jurassic World" were asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement by the film's production company, EEB Tide Productions.  One hopeful who happened to be a journalist couldn't resist writing about the experience. “No Facebook, no Instagram, nothing,” one casting call organizer put it when I finally made my way through the 3-hour line to where the organizers actually were. She didn’t say anything about print, but probably because she forgot. “If you want to work on this movie, take it seriously.” The day began at the Kauai Community College campus. The line, which began to form at 7 a.m. according to inside sources, snaked from the Performing Arts Center, past th
