How ’bout that nutty Star Wars bar? Sorry, like many SNL clips, the original video is not streaming.
Garbage Pail Kids: The Movie, anyone? Howzabout Troll and Troll 2?
A handful of trailers, that have caught my attention, for forthcoming docs and bios. Most of these will be released directly to video and streaming services (some may even be out, by now) and might slip through the cracks in the season of the Hollywood blockbuster.
If you liked Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse, Lost In La Mancha, and other such films about films and the trouble of getting them made, then Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey Of Richard Stanley’s Island Of Dr Moreau should be right up your alley
For fans of the music behind the movie, Score: A Film Music Documentary
What about a musical culture clash, as the world’s first, and probably only, female Japanese country music star, Tomi Fujiyama, attempts to return to the stage of The Grand Ole Opry, 50 years after her sole performance there.

First, you have to purchase the Philips Hue lighting system, which starts around the $200 range. The lights connect to your modem, and can be controlled by a wireless device like your smartphone or tablet.

Nicolas Cage didn’t just star in National Treasure. He IS a National Treasure!
for those with shorter attention spans, or solely a taste for deranged Cage
#1 was a given, but how did his manscaped chest hair in Valley Girl not make the list? Shenanigans!
