This weekend sees the release of The Legend of Hercules — and then later this year, we'll see a second Hercules movie. This seems to happen a lot: everybody gets the same bright idea at the same time, and competing films are rushed into production. Here are a ton of cases where weirdly similar films did battle.
Gary Garcia, who teamed with Jerry Buckner to perform the 1982 hit "Pac-Man Fever," a song synonymous with 1980s pop culture and America's early love affair with arcade gaming, died yesterday at his home in Englewood, Fla. He was 63.
The star of classic films such as Silver Bullet, Lucas, and The Lost Boys, as well as Digital Pictures' Double Switch for the PC, Sega CD, and Saturn, actor Corey Haim died today at the age of 38.
You know, pop-culture referencing television show Lost isn't the only form of entertainment that includes island fun.
