Secret Agent Matt Helm: Better Than Bond?!



Is Matt Helm the manliest fictional character ever created? First published between 1960 and 1993, author Donald Hamilton's protagonist is a secret agent who makes other tough guys look weak by comparison! In this video, we dig into the books themselves, the Dean Martin spin-off movies, and even compare Helm to James Bond! There's also the small matter of a yacht captain's hat.

Elvis at a Crossroads: G.I. Blues and Flaming Star


1960 was a pivotal year in the career of Elvis Presley. Fresh out of the army after a two-year stint in the service, the 25-year-old immediately returned to the life he'd left behind, arguably an even bigger star than when he'd left.  That year saw the release of two studio albums, Elvis Is Back! and the gospel LP His Hand in Mine, both of which were hits. But Hollywood was also calling, and Elvis was eager to answer.

GB20 Teaser Trailer (Ghostbusters)



Just hours ago, Jason Reitman (the son of Ghostbusters-I-and-II director Ivan Reitman and an established filmmaker in his own right) quietly dropped this teaser trailer for a new Ghostbusters movie that he's directing. We don't know much, other than it will take place in the same timeline as the first two classic films and that it's being released summer of 2020. I have been very skeptical of Sony's attempt to resurrect this beloved eighties franchise, but I have to say this teaser trailer gave me goosebumps. The music, the lighting, even the font of the text just feels like Ghostbusters. What do you guys think? #GB20
