Link Fist Way

So much good linking action for y'all this week. A lot of funny and a lot of awesome.

LINK OF THE WEEK: As you may have heard Peter Jackson and Guillermo Del Toro will be collaborating with WETA studios on two Hobbit movies, one based on the book and the other acting as a bridging film between the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. At first I was concerned that Guillermo was being taken away from his passion projects to be a gun for hire but reading this amazing chat transcript the two bearded geniuses took part in comforts me a great deal. Be blown away by Hobbit-y awesomeness here.

Funny: College Humor's gorgeous man-candy (mandy?) Patrick Cassels has another amusing film-related write-up about God in the Indiana Jones trilogy. Laugh at face-melting here.
Meanwhile over at Cracked, they've compiled a list of the six least plausible jobs held by Steven Segal in films. Hey, cracked, here's a tip, of the job isn't tubby, pony-tailed douchebag it's not a plausible Segal job.
Cracked has also compiled a list of the eight least intimidating gangs in film history. They're way off about the side gangs in The Warriors. The only one's that should've made the list are the Orphans (seriously, check with their parole officer).
Several kind souls (all of them smart savvy ladies...and Etan) referred me to articles like this about the archeological "inaccuracy" in the Indiana Jones movies. Cute.
Speaking of Indy, the AV Club had some snarky, amusing things to say about the film.

Prurient: I've been listening to the fabulous She & Him Volume One A LOT lately. The group is comprised of studio brat M. Ward and the incredibly adorable Zooey Deschanel (Elf, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and a whole bunch of depressing indie films). Unlike ScarJo, Zooey can really bring it vocally. She's also hot as hell, see?

Lists & Analysis: Scene Stealer's has comprised a list of 10 flops turned classics. Oh in-theater audiences, you never know a good thing even when it's right in front of you.
