Ain't It Cool Does Something Cool (Imagine That...)

The movie news and review website AICN (Ain't It Cool News) has been doing something very cool indeed lately. They've been posting some old behind-the-scenes photos from productions that were shot when we didn't have such a thing as a special features section on a DVD. If you visit THIS LINK, you can see the original post that shows the pic I shared in this blog today. But if you scroll down, you can also see a whole mess of behind-the-scenes pictures from Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and a lot more. These are shots that you haven't seen before, and they're just very very inspiring. (If you're new to AICN, beware, there are plenty of what Spock would call, "colorful metaphors" on the site. Lots of bad language, in other words, and totally not safe for kids.)

If you're like me, you take in as much behind-the-scenes info from movies as you possibly can! Especially anything from the classics. I just showed, "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" to my husband for the first time a year and a half ago and he loved it. This movie terrified me as a kid and it was the first in a series of terrifying encounters with monsters of the deep on film. (JAWS being the primary monster, of course.) So enjoy the pictures! I know I do!
