Friday Film Fan: Movies You May Have Missed 015 – ‘Better Luck Tomorrow’ Fast & Furious Prequel?

One of Lee’s first experiences with independent, low budget films. Notable as he’s since met most of the people that have worked on this film. A charming look at Asian American students flirting with their darker natures.

The podcast ran for three straight years, producing over 150 episodes, and at its peak was downloaded over 3 million times per month.

Friday Film Fan: Movies You May Have Missed 011 – ‘ A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints’

“It’s summer. It’s hot.”

This phrase is still uttered on the regular between Lee, Marie, and Juan, even eight years after originally reviewing this film.

Friday Film Fan: Movies You May Have Missed 010 – Kurt Vonnegut Jr’s ‘Mother Night’

Adapting a Vonnegut novel for the big screen is an ambitious undertaking. Mother Night examines Nazi Germany through a radio broadcaster’s life while twisting our brains up by messing with time.

Friday Fun: BBC Radio Broadcast of Neuromancer by William Gibson

William Gibson helped create most of the lingo we use today when discussing internet things like hackers or cyber-security. Neuromancer was an influential novel for this author, and it’s a fun trip visiting this BBC radio play. Two hours in length, it’s abridged, but a surprisingly effective re-telling of a classic sci-fi novel. Check it out over the weekend, or during the holidays. Not bad for a freebie!

Friday Fun: Web Comic Predicts iPad Keyboard Cover THREE Years Ago

Is this how predictable Apple has become?

We geeks like to joke about Apple being around three years behind the tech curve when it comes to new features, but Joel Watson, the author of web comic Hijinks Ensue, might have just proven our hypothesis.

When the Surface was first launched THREE YEARS AGO, and featured  a new kind of keyboard screen cover, Joel drew this comic:

JOEL CORRECTLY PREDICTED THE YEAR APPLE WOULD MAKE THIS! He just missed the actual keynote by a couple months as WWDC was back in June. Say what you will about Nerd-Boy Haterade©, but Apple’s making it pretty easy to poke fun…
