this is madness

Everyone's favourite Star Wars character tournament is back.  After last year's successful character elimination game it sees it's triumphant return for 2014.  You can vote now.

I don't want to influence you but I'm going to wave my hand at your face like the Jedi I am and say "you will vote for Porkins."

Right off you go.

This Is Madness: The Star Wars Character Tournament is back! Kicking off this year's fan-voted competition (March 11 -- April 7 at, the legendary Jedi Master Yoda speaks exclusively with Max Kellerman on ESPN's SportsNation about his championship win last year, his thoughts on this year's tournament, and more.

Starting off the interview, Kellerman notes that in his run for the title in the inaugural This Is Madness competition, Yoda faced many Jedi and friends. Was that difficult? "Very difficult," the 900-year-old Jedi says. "But take care of business, I did." Yoda thanks the Force and his supporters for voting him champion, and says he is still friends with Obi-Wan Kenobi, who he defeated in a close matchup. Yoda also addresses his battle with R2-D2, acknowledging the bad blood between the two. He then notes that in the championship final against Darth Vader, the Sith Lord was powerful -- but fans supported "the right side of the Force."

Yoda is excited about this year's installment of This Is Madness, telling Kellerman that its new entrants and divisions will make the tournament even more enjoyable. "Fun it will be, to see who wins," he says. Kellerman asks Yoda for a brief scouting support, and the Jedi Master gives his opinions on both Boba Fett and Salacious Crumb, saying of the latter, "Good in him, I sense."

Finally, Kellerman tries an impression for Yoda -- which may have been ill-advised -- and the two say goodbye. But the Jedi Master has one last remark...

Vote for your favorite Star Wars characters in This Is Madness every day from March 11 to April 7 -- only at!

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  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
