So, these McDonald’s Happy Meals that kids are crazy about usually come with free toys from some kid-friendly movie tie-up.

A House of Lies: the quest to find the ‘most 90s’ movies

Matt Warren Reader Find

By Matt Warren in Cool Websites on Thursday 17 January 2013

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!

By Adam Wells in Cool Websites on Tuesday 13 November 2012

Radio drama does not get much traction in today’s world, which is a shame because it could be so good. The guys and girls at The Truth are creating movies for your ears and hopefully redefining how you think about audio content. Highly recommend.

App shows you the best times to pee during a movie

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Tech on Friday 2 November 2012

An app that tells you when’s the best time to make a break for the loo in the middle of a film at the cinema, and gives you a pithy synopsis of just what you’ve missed when you’re back? Cool. One problem though: what if some scissor-happy film censor’s been snipping away at the film? But life is too short for worrying like that. Roll on, happy bladders.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Design on Tuesday 21 August 2012

After wondering what the movies we all know would look like if they were shot in a different era, illustrator and designer Peter Stults decided to recast them in a whole bunch of reimagined movie posters, giving them the old-school treatment. So, Mick Jagger for James Bond and Frank Zappa for The Big Lebowski? We approve.

Samantha Dalrymple Reader Find

By Samantha Dalrymple in New Art on Friday 27 July 2012

A memorable scene is what makes us remember the films we’ve seen. Turkish artist Murat Palta recreates classic films in miniature style for his thesis. Through his experiment to blend traditional ‘oriental’ (Ottoman) motifs and contemporary ‘western’ cinema, his works portray a sense of familiarity for all film buffs. Can you guess what movies he depicts in each piece?

Movie poster designs by Austin-based Mondo

Josef Buchanan Reader Find

By Josef Buchanan in New Design on Wednesday 9 May 2012

Austin’s Mondo is described via their Facebook page as follows: ‘If we have to explain what we are, you wouldn’t understand’. Which I guess is true in many ways, but the bottom line is they showcase numerous artistic renditions of movie posters, which span everything from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre to Duck Dodgers and the 24 1/2th Century, and everything in-between. Apparently the posters sell out within minutes, and sometimes even seconds, but you can still check out the archive and eventually pick up your jaw from the ground after viewing all of the awesome work that has beed done.
