bgr-logan-header

Every so often, a film comes along that waylays its genre's boundaries and becomes something else entirely. Logan is that film -- a thought-provoking character drama disguised as a superhero movie. The genre will never be the same.

MB&F HM7 Aquapod Tourbillon looks like it just rose from the briny deep

mb-f-hm7-aquapod-watch-17 It’s SIHH in Switzerland and that means all of the biggest and weirdest manufacturers are releasing their biggest and weirdest watches. Our favorite so far?

Knocki turns any surface into a switch

ces2017_knocki-1060141 What happens when you mix two software dudes, a little kid, and a light switch? You get the Knocki. The Knocki is a clever little device that connects to a wall or under a table. You can tap the surface to trigger events – turning on a light, muting speakers, etc. – and it is surprisingly small and easily-hidden. The founders are Ohad Never and Jake Boshernitzan, both of Austin… Read More

Wolfprint 3D raises $500K to bring scanning pods to an airport near you

luna-20_wireless_wo_logo-906x6042x 3D body scanning isn’t very exciting right now – you can’t really use your scan anywhere except maybe on Thingiverse where people can print you out and create a shrine to you (hint hint!). Wolfprint, however, wants to bring 3D body scanning to the masses by putting their pod-shaped scanners in airports and malls, allowing you to create 3D avatars of yourself for use in… Read More

Seeing Film Scenes Side-By-Side with the Original Storyboard Drawings Is So Cool

In these wonderful videos by Glass Distortion, you get to see the creative process of filmmaking: you can read what was written in the script, peek at what was imagined in the storyboards, and see the finished scene that was filmed for the movie. It’s the whole sausage making of turning words on a page into visual art laid out right in front of you.

This Former Nuclear Bunker Is Now Used to Preserve All of America’s Film Reels

This Former Nuclear Bunker Is Now Used to Preserve All of America's Film Reels

There’s a fascinating backstory about the building that is now the National Audiovisual Conservation Center, which is where the Library of Congress stores all 6.3 million pieces of the library’s movie, television, and sound collection. It used to be a nuclear bunker that stored $4 billion during the Cold War. Now, it’s a one-stop shop for all things regarding film preservation and restoration, with miles of shelves stacked with film reels to the ceilings, all sorts of machines that can repair film, process film, and print film, and any sort of video player you can imagine to play any sort of format that ever existed.

The multi-functional Balldur is a Swiss Army lamp

balldur_h2 At its minimalist worst, the Balldur is a cool looking lamp. Smooth wood and ceramic with a bulb that would make Thomas Edison proud, the Balldur (whatever that means) feels like an artifact from a Terry Gilliam movie—and that my friends is a good thing. In some ways, it is also reminiscent of boutique guitar amplifiers. In short, it is nice looking. Read More

5 Beyond Brilliant Action Scenes in Movies

5 Beyond Brilliant Action Scenes in Movies

Action movies are fun to watch but there’s a smart way to do action scenes and an epically dumb way to do it. The smart way focuses in on the details, tells a story within a story, and makes sure we know just what the hell is going on amidst all the crazy. The dumb way? Explosions, shaky camera effects, chaos to blur the action, and just a general messiness that doesn’t make any sense but looks cool.
