Ducks on a plane

By Alexandre

On my way to Baltimore today, with three hours to kill in the company of a giddy Southwest Airlines crew (if you’re not familiar with their antics, such as auctioning their “desperately single” hostesses to the highest bidder, I suggest you give them a try), I decided to bring my HOWARD THE DUCK DVD along…

Down, Lucas, down!

By Alexandre

After a short 3-day vacation in Napa (yes, lots of wine, and practically no George-related work, discussions or phone calls), I’m now heading to Geneva for a week. I’ll update the blog from there. In the meantime, here’s a sketch I simply couldn’t resist sharing with you all:

Hate leads to suffering…

By Alexandre

Worked until 4am last night, reviewing interview footage. The usual grind. No Saturday Night Fever for me these days. Woke up on a nice Sunday morning to find this in my inbox: Bad form. I disapprove of this entire project and hope it is not successful. In my opinion, you are parasites. Shaun Okay, fine….

In the shadow of STAR TREK

By Alexandre

We finally watched STAR TREK the other night, and when the credits rolled, I turned to Robert and Vanessa and proclaimed: “George Lucas is in trouble!” I never really thought that STAR TREK would become an integral part of the debate, but here we are. The plot thickens, as they say. Granted, the STAR WARS…

Chilled Monkey Braaaains, anyone?!

By Alexandre

  I received an email today from Chris Strompolos, who played Indiana Jones at the tender age of 12 in RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: THE ADAPTATION. We interviewed him a couple of weeks ago in Los Angeles, just a few days before the UK charity premiere of his film. The London screening was, I…

What happened in Vegas… I’m actually happy to share with you

By Alexandre

It’s late here in Denver, and I just realized I’m already way behind on my updates. I drove straight from Vegas to Denver yesterday on my way back from LA, and I’m now busy reviewing some of the footage we shot, fan submissions, and a handful of other goodies I’ll have to write about at…

Indiana Jones in love

By Alexandre

Thanks to the amazing Jonathan London, we were fortunate to schedule an interview with Chris Strompolos days before the UK premiere of his extraordinary RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: THE ADAPTATION. Now, I haven’t yet had a chance to watch the film (I will soon), but this one-of-a-kind cult classic is quickly building a reputation…

Jedi Hell

By Alexandre

After an 18-hour drive from Denver to Los Angeles (forced to take the southern route–long story), we kicked off another round of interviews bright and early Monday morning, and we couldn’t have asked for a better start! Jeff Bond (Geek Monthly Editor-in-Chief) answered a range of questions about the unique dynamic between George and his…
