Create your own action movies

Feel like blowing off steam by destroying that wonky copy machine at work? Or just want to shake up your surroundings? Well, then you need to add a bit of movie magic to your life!

And of course . . . there's an app for that.

The Action Movie FX app allows you to turn a video shot from your mobile phone into an effects sequence just like in the movies. The app is courtesy of well-known director J.J. Abrams' and his company, Bad Robot Interactive, which produces super special effects box office hits like Mission Impossible 3 and Super 8.

The app is available for iPhones at the Apple App Store. Shoot at least five seconds of still video. Then choose from a variety of dramatic effects to overlay onto your video. The free app includes three effects – missile attack, car smash, and demolition rock. And you can purchase additional effects, like chopper down or add tornado, for 99 cents a pair.

The best part? You can share your action flick with friends via email or on Facebook!
