This is what happens when gun control goes to the movies: guns get replaced by approving thumbs-up. Coupled with suitably intense looks from the gunmen — er, we mean, thumbmen — these doctored images almost reach abysmal heights. After all, as what the blog says, ‘Real tough guys don’t need guns, they just need a […]
I worked for years in the movies at a Studio before I began painting. It was a great experience overall and helped me understand art better. My new series, A Trip to the Movies, is a bit of a revisit to that time and that world. I used the format of a script as the […]
We found this really cool collection of graphics from Giulia Villa on The Super Slice that we just had to share. Featuring some of our favorite movies, Milan-born (and London-based) Villa treats us to a very colorful mix of characters from the likes of The Big Lebowski, Borat, Kill Bill, Star Wars, Juno, and A […]
You can tell a lot about a person based on the movies they choose. But did you know that you could tell a person’s personality by their seat selection? Psychologist Hiromi Mizuki has some theories on how our identities can affect seat selection when going to the cinemas.
Can you name that movie? And that one, too? This video montage of Movies in Movies is a magical collection of film highlights all with one theme in common: going to the movie theatre. With uplifting music and a fast pace, the video gives a sweeping yet brief history of cinema within other movies. It’s […]
We love stuff that mess with our minds, so it’s great to see just what ad agency Y&R Sao Paulo and photographer Lúcio Cunha did to promote a new surround sound home theater system: they took the otherwise instantly recognizable movie posters of films such as Kill Bill, Forrest Gump and Pretty Woman, then imagined how the flip side of these posters would look and showed what they looked like, viewed from behind. What an ingenious solution.
Jesús Prudencio is a graphic/web and illustrator currently living and working in Spain. His series Cars, And Films, is a combination of both his love of film and cars. These minimalistic film posters communicate an overall look and feel, which gives us a sense of insight into the films’ themes.
Tapestry is a collections of short and wonderful stories made for reading on the mobile phone. I really enjoy reading it. This is my favorite tapestry story so far. It’s written for a recent movie, The Way Way Back. I almost feel like this might be the future of movie trailers.
As a species, our attention spans are supposedly shrinking, and most mainstream films pander to this assumption. Images, action, strands of story and scene changes are ceaselessly thrown at us in an effort to keep our attention, and distract from the lack of meaningful plot and characters worth caring about. Passable movies keep you awake […]
So, these McDonald’s Happy Meals that kids are crazy about usually come with free toys from some kid-friendly movie tie-up. Newt Clements crossed the cheeseburger-filled boxes with cult films and TV series — think The Shining, The Exorcist, Night of the Living Dead and yes, even Little House on the Prairie — possibly making us […]
What happens when you bring locations that exist within movie realities into, well, real life? Google Street Scene, which squeezes iconic movie scenes into Google Maps’ Street View feature, that’s what. It’s the ingenious brainchild of Tre Baker, who has recreated these movie scenes in Google Street View style — he even blurs out the […]
One of the greatest movies ever. River’s Edge is a 1986 film about a group of high school kids. One of them murders their friend and the rest cover it up. Listen to this cast: Crispin Glover, Keanu Reeves, Ione Skye and Dennis Hopper, among others. The soundtrack includes Slayer, the Wipers and Agent Orange. […]
Where would 007 be without his special watches, guns, pens, and bombs? We all know that James Bond would only be half the super spy he is without all those gadgets Q outfits him with. Take a gander at this website for a rundown of every gadget the agent has ever used. Categorized by movie and use, each clever invention […]
Curated and created by LA-based graphic designer Roxy Radulescu, the Movies in Color blog features movie stills and their color palettes. Radulescu first uses a color generator to generate a basic, first-cut range of swatches, then assembles a general color spectrum using that, as well as the prominent colors from the still. These visuals rock […]
This blog is full of nostalgia as I grew up in the 90s and loved so many of these films. I admire the author’s dedication to the cause, as he challenges himself to find ‘the most ‘90’s film of all time’. His views and commentary are humorous as he thoroughly dissects these films. It’s great to reminisce about this era of movie making, and at the same time, it’s scary to see how dated things have become!
