Eadweard J. Muybridge, pioneer of motion photography and Google Doodle recipient, was so unique that he couldn't stick with his given name, Edward.  And that was long before the days of Metta World Peace (Ron Artest) and Lady Gaga (Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta). The English photographer was an original whose stunning accomplishments were dimmed -- at least for a time -- by sordid, bloody happenings in his personal life. Muybridge, born 182 years ago today in England, changed his name from Edward James Muggeridge because he wanted to adopt the original Anglo-Saxon form of his name, according to Encyclopedia Brittanica.

A year ago, writer-director James Hemphill was attending a screening of "RoboCop" and "Starship Troopers" at American Cinematheque's sixth annual Festival of Fantasy, Horror and Science Fiction at the Aero Theatre. While watching the Paul Verhoeven sci-fi flicks, Hemphill was harboring his own fantasy that someday he would make a movie that would play at the festival. "Little did I know it would be this fast," he says. Hemphill will be on hand at the Aero's screening Aug.

It's difficult to imagine a movie that exudes Hollywood more than "The Matrix Reloaded," the sci-fi action flick that opens in theaters today.
