Neat infographic shows brand and model of the most iconic movie glasses | Nerdy Needs | Scoop.it
This happens to me very often—and I'm sure it happens to you too: I'm watching a movie and one of the characters wears really cool glasses, so I go to google and look for the brand. British opticians Yates and Suddell spare us the work with this neat infographic showing the most iconic movie glasses and their brands.

While some are tired of the push for Anchorman 2, some of us are only too delighted to spot Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy “everywhere”. Tomorrow’s premier is still too long to...
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Don't look for any Veronica Corningstone merch, however; seems the feminist lessons of the first Anchorman were lost on those who produce movie tie-in merch. *sigh*

The Magic Of Polavision | Inherited Values

The Magic Of Polavision | Inherited Values | Nerdy Needs | Scoop.it

This is a Polavision camera: Polaroid’s first and only foray into self-developing movie film.

 

Yes, that’s the part that blew my mind:  the magical Polaroid 600 film that everyone shakes like a Polaroid picture is awe-inspiring enough, so doing that at 20 or 30 frames a second blows my mind.  The film was, technically, 8mm film, but it wasn’t the same beast.   The film was pre-loaded in a cartridge, along with a reservoir of developing fluid.  The movie was filmed in a Polaroid camera, like any other normal home movie.   The specialized player did most of the work:  the first time a cartridge was played, the player released the developing fluid, and in 20 seconds the whole movie was ready to be watched.
