The most anticipated film in years finally gets a 2nd trailer

The return of Bryan Singer to the director’s chair. Sentinals. Colossus finally getting some screen time (albeit who knows how much). How many reasons do we need to consider X-Men: Days of Future Past the most anticipated film in years for our nerdy little hearts? Based on what some consider the best X-Men comics ever, the […]


Peter Mayhew, the man who played everyone’s favorite Wookie, Chewbacca, has opened his treasure chest to expose some very candid, intimate behind-the-scenes photographs of his time shooting the legendary Star Wars franchise. For fans of the epic sci-fi space opera (who isn’t), the photos illuminate a side of the production that few have ever seen. Images shot […]

A story of a radical experiment in '70s utopian living gone wrong

Caught a screener of The Source Family documentary this weekend, and gotta say it is one crazy ass story.

So […]

The second film from the director of District 9

Who’d have ever thunk the “How’d you like them apples?” guy would evolve into one of Hollywood’s best action heroes. Certainly not us. But Matt Damon has become consistently bad ass over the years, and he’s usually spot on in selecting his film roles. We were huge fans of director Neill Blomkamp and his last film District 9 […]

Supreme creative director's graphic house warmer

How do you want to welcome your friends to your humble abode? Sure you could go with one of those traditional brown, coarse mats with “Welcome” emblazoned across the front, or go the kitsch route with something like “Wipe Your Paws” or some other wacky variant. Or, you could be truly considerate and welcome your […]

A manifesto against the army of pseudo laptop hipster DJs

LIAS partner-in-crime (literally) and photographer/director extraordinaire Robert Kerian has just dropped this new video for Camoflaug3, “Fake DJ”. With vocals supplied by Robert English lambasting the terminal mass of pretend laptop DJs flooding the hipster scene, we gotta say we’re really feeling this track. It seems to put into words the inchoate hatred I feel […]
