Yesterday was a big day for Hayden Christensen and Samuel L. Jackson fans, as the first trailer for Jumper was released. The movie is based on the book by Steven Gould, which means even Boing Boing got in on the squee action.
IGN lists their top ten cool Star Wars nerds. Honorees include Conan O’Brien, Seth Green, Kevin Smith, Samuel L. Jackson and… Oh, screw it, go read.
In other list news, Princess Leia’s buns top movie hairdo poll, beating out Marge Simpson, Audrey Herburn and John Travolta. That, my friends, is cultural permanence.
Yoda’s fadeaway makes MTV’s list of the ten most shocking movie deaths of all time. Also making an appearance, Samuel L. Jackson’s deeply ironic exit from Deep Blue Sea, aka the only reason anyone would want to actually watch Deep Blue Sea. (via TOSblog)
Surprisingly, there’s no Star Wars on QuigSpot’s list of the ten most obnoxiously over-quoted movies, unless one counts the whole ‘Anything with Samuel L. Jackson’ thing.
Now, maybe I hang out with too many geeks, but there are a few movies missing from this list: What about The Princess Bride? Spaceballs? The Big Lebowski? The collected works of Kevin Smith? What overused movie quotes could you live without?
It’s not a quote exactly, but one thing I don’t miss about scavenging for the weekly video posts is getting blasted with the motherbleeping Main Theme every other video. It’s practically an instant back-buttoner for me these days.
Okay, seriously: Samuel L. Jackson. Mind, the source is AICN, and the information is unconfirmed, but who better?
You caught me in a transitional period
- Big Blade Runner announcement expected at ComicCon.

Samuel L. Jackson received a special gift when he finished on the ROTS set.
Thrilled Samuel said: “There’s a lot of lore that goes along with Star Wars and I guess because I’ve been known since Pulp Fiction as a bad motherf*****, everybody thought that should be on my lightsaber.”
Lips were flapping at a film festival in Palm Springs over the weekend. Apparently in “Revenge of the Sith”…. uh… read it here.
And yes, big spoiler!
