Throughout it all, we stick with the driver as he lip syncs and dances his way through the perfectly choreographed heist behind the steering wheel.

You Can Make Your Own Backyard Movie Theater

At the drive-in, life does not recede when the movie begins. To the contrary, life asserts itself. People eat dinner in covered dishes. They drink cans of beer from coolers secreted past the gate. Kids stubbornly play on dimly lit playgrounds. I’ve seen vigorous games of ultimate Frisbee at drive-ins. And dogs.

Yes, we hang the speaker on the window. And sure, we take a gander at the movie, even from the backseat. But no one goes to a drive-in for the movie. We go to a drive-in to be somewhat outside as we watch our stories unfold 30 feet above us, against the sliver of sunset, the darkling light, the waxing disk of a summer moon.

New ‘Star Wars’ Cartoon Shorts Debut Online, Bringing Female Heroes in Full Force

Today marks the debut of Star Wars Forces of Destiny, a series of original animated shorts set in that galaxy far, far away and focusing on the franchise’s roster of female heroes. The first installment, titled “Sands of Jakku,” covers a moment not seen in The Force Awakens: Rey (voiced by Daisy Ridley) and BB-8 must escape a ravenous, metal-craving Nightwatcher worm (which keen-eyed film viewers briefly spotted early on in the film) on their way to Niima Outpost — the place where they eventually meet Finn.

That’s 30 animated movies, as well as the five DC Showcase short films that make the most of their brief running time: The Spectre, Green Arrow, Jonah Hex, Catwoman and Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam.

The Apprehension Engine: An Instrument Designed to Play the Music of Nightmares 

Movie composer Mark Korven wanted to craft the perfect sounds for horror movies, but the instruments he needed didn’t exist, and he was tired of using the same digital samples. To produce the original effects needed for evoking breathtaking moments of suspension, he teamed up with guitar maker Tony Duggan-Smith to craft an original instrument that would better aid in manufacturing fear. The Apprehension Engine is that tool, a mechanism built with several bowed metal rulers, spring reverbs, a few long metal rods, and other attachments that allow for spooky interludes and effects.

Cool – but how do you head-bang to it? 🙂
