Created as part of Justin Lin’s Yomfyom contest, Jimmy Lui’s (of Black Mast Studios) The Hopping Dead aims to terrify its audience to the bone. Read on for more details and to watch the short film in its entirety. Also in today’s Highlights: Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn Blu-ray release details as well as preview pages and cover artwork for Prometheus: Life and Death #3.
Watch Jimmy Lui’s Short Film The Hopping Dead: “The film was shot for Justin Lin’s Yomfyom filmmakers competition. It’s an homage to cult John Carpenter films like “Big Trouble in Little China and “They Live.” There’s also a nod to the classic old martial arts films featuring Sammo Hung. Lin’s competition had 2 rules. The film had to be less than 3 minutes running time and we could only use 4 lines of pre-selected dialogue — other than that there were no stipulations. »

Happy Birthday to one of We Are Movie Geeks favorite stars. Clint Eastwood was born on this day in 1930, making him 86 years old. The actor and two-time Oscar winning director hasn’t let his age slow him down a bit. Sully, his new movie as a director, opens in September.
We posted a list in 2011 of his ten best directorial efforts Here
Clint Eastwood has appeared in 68 films in his six (!) decades as an actor, and here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are his ten best:
Honorable Mention: Honkytonk Man

Also: why he feels he let SNL down during his last guest-hosting appearance. Here are all the highlights from the chat. His attempt at conversation with Kristen Wiig at a social gathering didn't go well. "She was talking to somebody else, and I was just -- I think she's so great, and the social barriers broke down and I interrupted the conversation. And I would just hate for somebody to do that to me. And she goes, 'yeah, I'll talk to you in a minute. »
