Thn are very pleased to announce that the legendary Indiana Jones is set to have the first three films re-released individually in high definition when they arrive on Digital HD November 19th and on Blu-ray with a digital copy available through iTunes December 17th from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Paramount Home Media Distribution.
I think it’s safe to say that these are some of the most recognisable action-adventure films in the genre since it first opened in 1991 and, I for one, never tire of the trilogy – I even would give the fourth an honourable mention for the sake of nostalgia. While you’re here, you should also check out details for the MediCinema charity screening and auction that’s coming up very soon in London and is a brilliant event to get involved with, find all the details by clicking here.

Things are going to get hairy. They always do in Movember, the charity sprout-a-thon that has somehow made moustaches not only respectable but also aspirational. So if you're thinking about taking part and are looking for a bristling example on which to model yourself, here are some of the most notable 'staches from TV history. Think of it as the Tufty Club.

Every list of eminent moustaches (on TV or otherwise) always begins or ends with one man: former Navy Seal turned Hawaiian housesitter Thomas Magnum. In a show packed with memorable signifiers – lurid shirts, lush scenery, a goddamn Ferrari – Magnum's luxuriant moustache still dominated, setting off »

Thursday marks the 20th anniversary of River Phoenix's untimely death on Oct. 31, 1993. The actor was just 23 when he died outside the Viper Room in West Hollywood due to a drug overdose, but made his mark on the world after starring in beloved films Stand By Me (1986), Running on Empty (1988) and My Own Private Idaho (1991). His final film, Dark Blood, was completed in 2012. In Phoenix's honor, we're taking a look back at a few of our favorite clips of the gone-but-never-forgotten star. Watch the clips below and share your favorite memories in the comments below. Classic: Check out this Stand By Me tribute. »

There's a moment of sharp emotional poignancy towards the end of Rob Reiner's beloved coming of age drama Stand by Me. After a summer he'll never forget Gordie (Wil Wheaton) waves goodbye to his friend Chris Chambers, and as the latter strides off, his image fades away from the screen.
It's a scene that cuts deep for anyone who's seen and loves Stand by Me; not only does it foreshadow Chris's untimely death, years later it all draws parallels between the character and the actor who so memorably brought him to life, River Phoenix.
It has been 20 years since Phoenix died tragically outside the Viper Room club in Los Angeles, but his filmography grows all-the-more impressive over time. Phoenix has a spectacular list of collaborations with directors, racking up films with the likes of Joe Dante, Steven Spielberg, Peter Bogdanovich, Gus Van Sant, Sidney Lumet and Peter Weir in his all-too brief 23 years. »
Himym rifled through their bag of tricks last night, and used pretty much every one. Nostalgic pop-cultural framing device? Check. Women-be-crazy subplot? Check. Lily wit’ attitude? Check. (How delirious were the writers when they decided What the damn hell? was such a funny punch line that several characters needed to say it?) I didn’t laugh once. Or maybe just once, when, during the Indy reenactment, Ted says: “Really? I’m the one working with the Nazis?” Barney’s theory that wedding-weekend hookups are determined during drinks on Friday night held promise, but the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade reference was too convenient. You can almost picture a white board in the writers’ room with a list of plot points and a corresponding list of eighties and nineties movies and catchphrases that, when crossed, will redeem any story line. Ted has his pick of three single women at the wedding, »

As has been the case throughout the opening run of "How I Met Your Mother's" final season, Monday's (Oct. 21) episode featured several amusing small moments. It's hard not to chuckle at Sherri Shepherd's voice coming out of Alyson Hannigan's mouth, and the running "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" gag was funny, then not funny, then funny again with the "She chose ... Wesley" line at the end.
But at this point, the viewing experience is one of marking time until we see the Mother again -- she has a big episode coming up in a couple of weeks, so there's that to look forward to. The latest tease of Ted on the train platform* in this episode doesn't count.

Ida Martins’ Media Luna has added four pics to its Toronto fest sales slate, which is headed by Dutch psychological drama “The Dinner.”
Helmed by Menno Meyjes, whose writing credits include films like “The Color Purple,” “Empire of the Sun” and “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” the pic will have its world premiere at the festival in the Contemporary World Cinema section.
It is based on Herman Koch’s best-seller, inspired by a real-life murder. It centers on a hypocritical left-wing couple, whose teenage son may be hiding a terrible secret.
Another acquisition is Stijn Coninx’s feel-good drama “Marina,” which is based on the childhood memories of the Italian-Belgian singer Rocco Granata, set in a multi-cultural mining community in Belgium.
Also on the slate is Julia von Heinz’s drama “Hanna’s Journey,” a German-Israeli co-production. Pic follows Hanna, who goes to Israel to work with disabled people, »

Title – Filmmaker
Section: Contemporary World Cinema
Times: Monday 9th, Wednesday 11th, Sunday 15th
Buzz: Best known to North American audiences as the screenwriter of Spielberg faves The Color Purple, Empire of the Sun, (as well as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade), veteran filmmaker Menno Meyjes is no stranger to taking book club favorites and adapting them into timeless films. The Dinner is a best selling Dutch novel by Herman Koch that was recently translated and brought over to North America readers, who quickly shone a spotlight on the darkly funny criminal satire of modern day European society, and based on a shocking true story. Fans of the novel are curious to see how the biting tale of what sins are overlooked underneath the sheen surface of bourgeois culture will translate into film.

Artist Otis Frampton created this awesome set of Indiana Jones fan art featuring the villains from the four films. I've always enjoyed Frampton's style, and this is what the artist had to say on his blog about this series:
"I'm pretty happy with the four Indiana Jones villain pieces I recently finished for my 2014 sketchbook, so I thought I'd post them all in one place."
The characters include Belloq from Raiders of the Lost Ark, Mola Ram from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Walter Donovan from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Spalko from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Yossi Dina is quite a character, and we absolutely love the Yossi-isms featured on Beverly Hills Pawn. This Labor Day Reelz is delivering eleven hours of Bhp starting at 9am Et, complete with dozens of classic Yossi quotes. Granted we've heard plenty of gems from Mr. Dina, but our favorite is still the Yossi-tastic classic "are you cwazy?" In honor of Monday's Bhp marathon, we decided to take a quick look at this supercut of movie characters asking each other if they're crazy in a whole variety of situations. From Indiana Jones to The Breakfast Club kids, it turns out that there are plenty of characters nearly as colorful as Yossi wondering about others' sanity.

Congratulations, Internet! You've voted "The Dark Knight" the best blockbuster sequel of all time in Moviefone's Summer Sequel Smackdown.
For the past four months (since April 29, to be exact), you've been casting your votes (hundreds of thousands of votes, to be more specific), narrowing 64 contenders down to the top four sequels from the most popular blockbuster movie genres: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" (fantasy), "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (action), "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" (sci-fi), and "The Dark Knight" (superhero).
Then, last week, we finally asked you to pick the top sequel from those four. For most of the week, "Empire Strikes Back" and "Dark Knight" were neck-and-neck, but, in the end, the Caped Crusader walked away the victor.
What do you think, dear readers? Was "The Dark Knight" really the right choice, or was a different movie more deserving of the top title? »

Carly Simon may have sung 'Nobody Does It Better' for Roger Moore's James Bond outing The Spy Who Loved Me, but when it comes to big screen 007s it's still hard to look past Sean Connery's combo of humour, sophistication and ruthless killer instinct.
The Scot celebrates his 83rd birthday today (August 25), and Digital Spy wants to know what your favourite Connery movie moment is. Here's five below to help get the memory banks firing.
With a laser creeping precariously towards his gonads, Connery's 007 is still able to keep his cool in the presence of villain Auric Goldfinger. The below scene shows just why he was so brilliant as Bond, mixing arrogance, wit and cunning in the space of four tense minutes…
The Man Who Would Be King (1975)
And then there were four.
You voted all summer long and narrowed it down from 64 contenders to the top four sequels from the most popular blockbuster movie genres. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" cast its spell as best fantasy sequel, "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" whipped its way to the top as best action sequel, the force was with "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" for best sci-fi sequel, and "The Dark Knight" made Gotham proud, winning the title of best superhero sequel.
But now, dear movie fans, it's time to pick just one.
That's right, summer's not over yet, and neither is the voting. Of these four, which sequel reigns supreme? Vote below, and we'll declare the winner of Moviefone's Summer Sequel Smackdown on Tuesday, August 27.

Harrison Ford may be in his 70s, but that doesn't mean he's slowing down -- and that goes double for his on-screen alter ego, Indiana Jones. Ford says that despite his age -- 71, to be exact -- he thinks a fifth "Jones" film could definitely work, with a few tweaks.
"We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it's perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass," Ford said in a recent interview with the UK's Telegraph. "To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened, and that he still managed to survive. That I can do."
