nerds go crazy

Noomi Rapace in Prometheus

Ridley Scott announced himself on the directing scene in 1979 with "Alien," then followed that now-classic film, with another all-time-great in "Blade Runner." The man could well have hung up his directing hat at that point and basked in nerd adulation into perpetuity. He didn't, instead moving from fantasy with "Legend" to more mainstream films and eventually Academy Award nominees and winners.

If you guys haven't seen the LARP documentary "Darkon", you should. It's a hoot watching these guys run around the woods playing with fake swords and pretending to be medieval. Good times are had by all.
