Fast and Furious 6 may be yet another zany movie about adult bumper cars starring the familiarly furious Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster (who, juding by her cinematic output and striking resemblance, should be officially nicknamed Gasoline Ali MacGraw), but it got me thinking: Can you name any car chase movies you actually care about? And if so, what’s your favorite film in the genre?
Here are my top five.
4) Back to the Future: Chiiiiiild, when Biff is after Marty on his makeshift skateboard? So unexpected and hilarious.

Robin Williams’ biggest commitment to series television since the days of “Mork & Mindy” highlights a 20th TV slate that is deep, even if not necessarily brimming with international star appeal.
Williams is teaming with another recognizable face, Sarah Michelle Gellar, in the single-cam, father-daughter workplace comedy “The Crazy Ones,” from the pen of a scribe with no small amount of global cachet himself: David E. Kelley.
Kelley’s star Stateside hasn’t shined quite as brightly of late — “Harry’s Law” (NBC) lasted only two seasons, while “Monday Mornings” (TNT) didn’t make it past one, and half-hour isn’t exactly where the “Picket Fences” and “Ally McBeal” creator made his bones, but a series starring Williams in an accessible setting is filled with worldwide potential.
A slam dunk for interest is the limited-series return of Kiefer Sutherland in “24: Live Another Day.” The condensed format »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb:
"About those head-scratchers: yeah, this movie definitely made pretty bizarre decisions, several of which continued to nag at me days after I’d seen it, even though my overall memories of the film were ones of fondness..."
Read the full article, with many spoilers for the film, here.
This article arrived, coincidentally enough, on a day when I was directed to an “Everything Wrong with Jurassic Park in 3 minutes or less” YouTube video, by a friend who knows how much I adore the Spielberg Dino-romp. This is [obviously] not a recent trend and it has happened for years, with many more videos arguing the multiple inconsistencies and minor-flaws that “destroy” a box-office blockbuster. »

I guess the key to enjoying anything dealing with time travel is to not overthink it, as you’ll only hurt your fragile little brain. As a fan of time travel stories from the fun (Back To The Future) to the complex (12 Monkeys) to the downright over my head (Primer), I was looking forward to Comeback’s five issues being collected as I’ve yet to read a decent comic dealing with time travel (feel free to throw some recommendations my way in the comments).
Written by Ed Brisson and illustrated by Michael Walsh, Comeback is a real labour of love for the creators and tells the story of Reconnect – a company who can reunite people who have died prematurely/by accident with their loved ones. Needless to say the company – fronted by agents Mark and Seth, their boss, and Owen, a fixer – charge a hell of a lot for »

You probably wouldn't guess by looking at her, but Lea Thompson is a die-hard Trekkie!.toofab caught the actress at the Hollywood premiere of "Star Trek Into Darkness," where she made an on-camera plea to director J.J. Abrams to put her in the next "Trek" film.With Abrams' films re-imagining the classic sci-fi franchise, we *had* to ask Lea about the possibility of a "Back to the Future" reunion or remake. Check out her answer below, and hear her talk "Trek" -- she's such a fangirl! As for "Back to the Future," Lea doesn't think it'll get remade, but if she needs someone to play her younger self, she should get her daughter Zoey Deutch --- who the spitting image of young Lea.Click on the "Launch Gallery" link below to see what the rest of the cast looks like today!

Movie stars such as Steve McQueen, Christian Bale and Sean Connery have all slammed down the accelerator for high-octane car stunts, while Sam Raimi has clung valiantly to his old '70s Delta 88, finding a place for it in each of his films (including the recent Evil Dead remake).

He became a huge TV star by appearing on hits including Family Ties and Spin City, and is now set to make a return to regular series TV this fall! Here are five things you may not know about Michael J. Fox.
1. His middle name is actually Andrew, but the initial J. was added to his professional name in honor of character actor Michael J. Pollard.

2. Made his small screen debut in 1976 in the CBS series Letters from Frank when he was 15. At the time, he was portraying a 10-year-old.

Ready for one of those "so that's how they did it" moments? Great. Strap in for the geeky ride.
As you might've figured out by now — you are smart enough to be visiting the raddest movie site on the web-o-sphere, after all — movies don't just appear out of thin air. A lot of technique, manpower and good old fashion ingenuity goes into making every single frame happen on-screen.
Some movies require more creativity and craftsmanship than others, of course, and with the most iconic movies in history, there's a lot to be explored about how these awesome flicks came to be.
Check out this great pic of the train scene in "Back to the Future," for example.
That Delorean is barely as big as the cake we saw! Great Scott!
No, but seriously, it is a little bit jarring to see the man behind the curtain, isn't it?

The trailer for "The Michael J. Fox Show" suggests this just may be the perfect starring vehicle for the sharp-witted "Family Ties" and "Back to the Future" star. Just as he did on "The Good Wife," Fox isn't shying away from mentioning (and in this case, making great fun of) the Parkinson's that at one point sent him into early retirement. The tone of this single camera sitcom appears to be razor sharp -- and more than happy to make fun of the treacly poignancy that often gets heaped upon Fox. On the show, Fox is Mike Henry, one of New »

Let's face it: It's not easy making it nowadays. The economy sucks, and the concept of steady work is like chasing a mythical unicorn. That being said, how far would you go to get a job? How badly do you want one? The Employer wants to know!
Written and directed by Frank Merle, The Employer stars Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Halloween, Silent Night, "The Mentalist,” “Entourage,” “Franklin & Bash”), Paige Howard (Adventureland), Billy Zane (Titanic, Back to the Future, Dead Calm), and David Dastmalchian (The Dark Knight, Saving Lincoln, Prisoners). Merle and Chris Roe produce.
Look for it to be released on June 7th.

While he’s been a reliable supporting actor for years, particularly in the likes of Step Brothers, Adam Scott has also done good work when he gets the opportunity to be more of a leading man (Friends With Kids). Now comes a chance for even more exposure (possibly literally) because he’s in early negotiations to join the cast of Hot Tub Time Machine 2.Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke and director Steve Pink are all making deals to return for the sequel, but John Cusack currently is not. Scott, assuming he signs on, is set to play an entirely new lead for the film, which, while plot details are under wraps, focuses on a hot tub that doubles as a time machine. The big question this time is where the four main men will travel and how it will affect their lives. Are they headed for the past, »
We here at Digital Spy have thoroughly enjoyed a new weekly YouTube series dedicated to homemade remakes of classic films.
CineFix's Homemade Movies channel has produced a number of shot-for-shot remakes of movie scenes and trailers, including Lord of the Rings, Star Trek Into Darkness, Iron Man 3 and even One Direction's upcoming 3D movie using sock puppets.
So we had a chat with filmmaker Dustin McLean from the Homemade Movies team to find out more about the project, and what we can expect in future episodes.
So what gave you guys the idea to produce 'homemade' versions of classic movie clips and trailers?
"It's actually something I've done since I was a little kid with a VHS video camera, so after making miscellaneous live action videos on YouTube for a few years I wanted to try working a show around the concept.

Screw you guys! Check out 1A4Studio’s speed run of George Lucas’ “Star Wars” in exactly one minute. Or as the guys put it on their YouTube channel: Skywalker. Vader. Lots of futuristic rooms. The droids they were in fact looking for. All as if George Lucas were on meth. Funny. This is vid #3. They’ve actually done more. Check out one for “Back to the Future” and another for “The Matrix”. »
There was an internet meme floating around a couple of months ago – a photo from Back To The Future II showing that January 4, 2013 was the futuristic date that Marty McFly travelled to! Turns out it was a hoax (and a rather pointless one at that) – the real date was Oct. 21, 2015. What a relief! For a moment, there, I was afraid we didn’t have time to build those flying cars, levitating skateboards, and talking sneakers.
Today, the original Back To The Future (1985) is dated only by its Huey Lewis soundtrack and the choice of a De Lorean as a time machine. Except for a needless scene in which an obviously dubbed Michael J. Fox pretends he’s both Chuck Berry and Jimi Hendrix, there’s little to criticize, and much to admire. One surprise in watching Back To The Future 28 years later is how cleverly the plot and script ties »

Today we live in an interesting age of Hollywood. Each year we get a plethora of original films to feast on…we also seem to get more and more sequels and remakes. And reboots. And adaptations. It’s something you’ve no doubt heard before. Or you’ve at least considered it: Hollywood often seems to make it look like there are no original ideas left in the world. While I’ve adored many of these films, I’ve also found myself wondering, am I part of a bigger problem here?
A quick look over the major films listed on IMDb for 2013 reveals that this year we will receive 30 sequels, 3 prequels, 2 reboots, 4 remakes, 1 spin-off and 7 major adaptations. And that’s just what I found in the 250 most popular titles for 2013. Imagine what we would find if we went through the entire year’s output! Some generous maths will tell us »

Today is Star Wars Day, an unofficial holiday for fans of the film franchise, named so because the date is May the fourth. As in it sounds like "may the force (be with you)." It shouldn't be confused with Geek Pride Day, which falls on May 25, the day A New Hope opened in 1977 (and which was officially declared Star Wars Day by the Los Angeles City Council in/for 1997 only). If you think it's unfair that Star Wars has two holidays, the second one isn't all its own. Geek Pride Day is a sort of umbrella holiday including Towel Day (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) and Glorious 25 May (Terry Pratchett's Discworld). It's also writer Bob Gale's birthday, so let's just start throwing Back to the Future fandom in there too. Unless...

Imagine an art show that focuses on "prominent characters of fiction and their often creative ways of getting around." If that sounds cool, then I recommend checking out the new Hero Complex Gallery show called "Righteous Rides...And the Dudes Who Drive Them" that opened in Los Angeles tonight. The show is located at 2020 South Robertson Blvd., Studio D (90034) and it's filled with artwork based on the rides from Blade Runner, Akira, Bullitt, Back to the Future, Star Wars, James Bond, Ferris Bueller, Prometheus, Transformers, Up, Star Trek, and so many others it's too many to list here. The most important thing to know is that the artwork is really well done and it's definitely worth the drive. However, since most of you live outside of Los Angeles, I took pictures of everything on display and after the jump you can check out about 70 images from the show. Finally, while »

When it comes to iconic automobiles related to some of our favorite movies of all time, there really aren't many left that you can still see on display or actually drive yourself. This is especially the case for all the cool, futuristic cars from your favorite sci-fi movies since most of them were delicate props that have long since been disassembled. That is except for the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future, which, thanks to the fact that many DeLoreans still exist, is still being retrofitted to look exactly like the different versions of the car used in all three movies. And in some cases, you can even rent one for something as cool as your wedding or as simple as impressing your friends by rolling up to Friday-night bowling in style. Recently the Time Machine...
