Ready for one of those "so that's how they did it" moments? Great. Strap in for the geeky ride.

As you might've figured out by now — you are smart enough to be visiting the raddest movie site on the web-o-sphere, after all — movies don't just appear out of thin air. A lot of technique, manpower and good old fashion ingenuity goes into making every single frame happen on-screen.

Some movies require more creativity and craftsmanship than others, of course, and with the most iconic movies in history, there's a lot to be explored about how these awesome flicks came to be.

Check out this great pic of the train scene in "Back to the Future," for example.

That Delorean is barely as big as the cake we saw! Great Scott!

No, but seriously, it is a little bit jarring to see the man behind the curtain, isn't it?

How about with this uber recognizable moment from "E.T." which is now totally ruined by this giant (but actually just normal-sized) man?

And get a load of this glimpse at how they did all that (daaa daaaa da da da da daaaaa) scrolling story for "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back."

Mind officially blown.

Oh, and there's also this cool glimpse at Heath Ledger being a boss as the joker on "The Dark Knight" set.

And this one of Mr. Anderson Keanu Reeves and Hugo Weaving executing that awesome pistol fight scene we all loved so well in "The Matrix."
