Whatever holiday you celebrate in December, it comes with a lot of pressure. If you get that special someone the wrong gift, watch out. Things can get pretty ugly. That’s particularly true for pop-culture fans. They know what they want, and they probably have most of it already. Perhaps you know someone like this. Perhaps you are someone like this. (Perhaps I am someone like this.)

The ages-old query of “So, who were your influences on the film?” still appears regularly in interviews following a big-name movie’s release. But in recent years, directors have started to name the films they drew from before the premiere as a way of drumming up anticipatory buzz. At the Star Wars Celebration in London earlier this year, Episode VIII director Rian Johnson name-checked Bridge on the River Kwai, Three Outlaw Samurai, Letter Never Sent, and 12 O’Clock High as points of reference for the next Star Wars picture. The initial public response went along the lines of “lol what the hell are you talking about,” but eventually cooled into “Alright, can’t front, that sounds pretty awesome.”

Just when you thought Disney wasn’t milking its ownership of Lucasfilm for all that it’s worth, the corporation that owns everything you love turns around and reveals an Indiana Jones themed restaurant opening this fall at Walt Disney World. And while this is undoubtedly a canny way to squeeze additional dollars out of visiting nerds, the surprisingly subtle theming is going to make any fan of the original movies grin.

There’s a running joke in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade that Indy took his nickname from the family dog. That joke has some truth to it though because as George Lucas was developing Raiders of the Lost Ark, he actually named the character after his dog, Jones (the “Indiana” was a riff on Steve McQueen character Nevada Smith). Coincidentally, the same dog was the inspiration for Chewbacca in Star Wars. Need more Raiders of the Lost Ark facts?

Just how good is the original, 1978 version of 'Halloween'? So good that it's managed to remain an untouchable classic after seven increasingly awful sequels and an indescribably bad remake. It's so good that's it's being re-released this October, so you can experience as it is meant to be experienced: on the big screen with an audience.
