  • Everything Wrong With Taken In 9 Minutes Or Less

    In celebration of Liam Neeson’s ass-kicking return to the multiplex with Non-Stop, we bring you all the sins we could find in the original Taken. Surprisingly, even though the movie features plenty of scenes of Liam Neeson killing people… it still had some sins.

  • A Celebration Of Classic Movie Theaters [12 HQ Photos]

    New York-based photographer and cinematographer Franck Bohbot set out to capture the magic of old Hollywood with his series “Cinema.” Bohbot visited the most amazing, ornate theaters in California and photographed them during off hours when they were completely vacant. The theaters are often seen as simply a delivery system for the art of film while they’re own artistic merit is overlooked. This is just a small sample of the full series, available along with other great works, at Franck Bohbot’s Portfolio.

  • Philip Seymour Hoffman Wrestles With The Concepts of Happiness, Love, and Death [Video]

    With the sudden, unexpected death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman from a heroin overdose on Sunday, the Internet has become overrun with differing opinions on the matter. Some feel like a drug addict is being glorified. Others feel Hoffman is receiving more sympathy than other addicts who are equally deserving. No matter what your thoughts are on the matter, you’ve got to admit that his death has sparked discussion on addiction. We are fortunate enough that Philip Seymour Hoffman, being an extremely popular actor, was often in the public eye. Through his work and interviews, where he was often candid about his issues, we get a view of addiction that many of us would never see. Such is the case with this discussion between Hoffman and philosopher Simon Critchley filmed at the Rubin Museum of Art on December 17, 2012. The two explain the nature and illusion of happiness, love, and death, an especially prescient dialogue considering recent events.

  • Entourage The Movie Yacht Party In South Beach! 32 Behind The Scenes Photos

    Filming of Entourage the Movie is in full swing and this past weekend Vinny Chase and the boys hit South Beach to shoot the opening scenes of the anticipated film. In typical Entourage fashion Doug Ellin, the creator of the show, rented a 160 foot super yacht named “Blind Date,” which features a large sun deck, five state rooms and a seven person hot tub, to shoot the opening scenes. In addition to all these incredible yacht amenities he added a dozen of the most beautiful women Miami has to offer, including one of our favorites Nina Agdal. We tracked down some behind the scenes photos from the shoot for you to see how it all went down.

  • Every Wes Anderson Slow Mo Shot In One Video

    No matter what your feelings are towards director Wes Anderson, there is no denying that he knows how to film one hell of a touching slow motion shot. Vimeo user Alejandro Prullansky has edited together all of Anderson’s slow motion scenes, from 1996′s “Bottle Rocket” to 2012′s “Moonrise Kingdom.” The video is set to “New Slang” by the Shins, making it an orgasmic viewing experience for hipsters the world over.

  • The 25 Greatest (Worst) Movie Scenes in Film History

    In the 100+ years of film history a lot of films have been made that would have Thomas Edison rolling over in his grave. We’ve combed through the YouTube archives to find the 25 movie scenes that are so bad they are good. Strong Language Warning.

  • If 1980’s Movie Posters Were Stained Glass [8 Photos]

    Turin, Italy-based graphic designers Van Orton Design took classic movies from the 80s and made posters for them in a unique, stained glass style. Now someone needs to take these designs and make actual stained glass windows for one of those renovated, historic move theaters. Or maybe use make them for a church devoted to the 80s where we pray to the almighty Zoltar machine from Big and get wishes in return!

  • Movie Posters As Neon Signs [23 GIFs]

    Animator and illustrator Mr Whaite used his artistic talents to create these amazing animated GIFs of neon signs for classic movies. Now someone needs to turn these into actual neon signs. I would totally buy the “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure” one if it existed.

  • Honest Trailer of Home Alone

    There’s no better way to start the Christmas season than by revisiting the family holiday classic featuring cutie pie Macaulay Culkin violently standing his ground against two hapless burglars! It’s Home Alone!

  • Minimalist Disney Movie Posters [13 Images]

    We love the trend in minimalist poster art (Brad Pitt movies, classic films, Super Smash Bros., etc.) and these Disney posters are no exception. They are all incredible but the “101 Dalmatians” is especially amazing. If you enjoy these, French artist Eloise, better known as Citron Vert on DeviantArt, has even more Disney movies and Pokemon characters represented in the minimalist style on her DA page.

  • Star Wars Characters Improve Any Painting

    If you spent any time in shopping malls in the 90s, you are familiar with the terrible crap that Thomas Kinkade tried to pass off as “art” at his franchised galleries. The “Painter of Light,” as he was known, also seemed to be the artist of choice for soccer moms looking for something to decorate their McMansions in the ultimate display of American ostentatiousness. Artist Jeff Bennet saw Kinkade’s idyllic universe as the perfect place for a Star Wars Empire invasion and added iconic characters such as Rancors and Stormtroopers. Good thing Thomas Kinkade died last year, because seeing his beloved cottages in ruins would certainly give him a heart attack (and a hard-on for a lawsuit).

  • How To Win An Oscar [Infographic]

    Okay all you actor types, get out your magnifying glass and start studying this infographic. Don’t be one of those losers who has to say “well it was an honor just to be nominated.” That’s crap and you know it. I’m no thespian, but as a bearded man who would only participate in sex scenes where I die (everyone needs a niche), I probably wouldn’t win an Oscar any time soon. That’s okay, for it would be an honor just to have my dead wang on film.

  • Batman Is Looking Pretty F&%KING Jacked

    Perennial Dad of the Year contender Ben Affleck picked his daughter, Violet, up from school yesterday for a little shopping in Los Angeles, and he was clearly sending a message to the legions of pissed off nerds that don’t want him playing Batman in Batman vs. Superman that they can doubt him all they want, but he is pretty f&%king jacked now.

  • The Matrix In Real Life [Video]

    Yesterday we featured Indiana Jones in Real Life from New York’s Improv Everywhere and today they have released their take on The Matrix. Filmed entirely inside of Macy’s, watch a sad Neo in his futile attempt at finding a “man dress” until an army of Agent Smiths arrive, leading to an epic slow motion fight. Inside Macy’s. Full of customers and employees. And let’s hear it for the employees for simply enjoying the show and not losing it on the performers and bringing security into the mix.

  • Drew Struzan: The Greatest Movie Poster Artist In Hollywood History [17 Photos]

    Remember when movie posters weren’t indistinguishable, photoshopped garbage, relying heavily on orange/blue contrast and lens flares? In the dark ages of the 80s, we relied on actual artists to make movie posters with stuff called paint and brushes. And Drew Struzan was the king of the medium. Every 80s kid is familiar with his Indiana Jones and Back to the Future posters and even 90s kids recognize his Hook promo. Since movie studios have gone the cheap photoshop route, he’s found work in comic books and Franklin Mint collectible plates (you might find a Struzan on Grandma’s wall!), but we’ll always remember him for his work for film and here are some of his greatest works.

  • Grumpy Cat Ruins Disney Classics [7 Photos]

    How can anyone not love Tardar Sauce, aka Grumpy Cat? His signature grimace, caused by feline dwarfism, melts all of our usually cold, emotionless, manly hearts. Even when he’s ruining Disney classics, like in this series of illustrations by artist Eric Proctor, you can’t help but love the guy. Now that the basic plots are settled, someone really needs to make some animated shorts of these. And how about a Grumpy Cat Arthur refusing to pull the sword from the stone? Or a Grumpy Cat Quasimodo refusing to save Esmerelda?

  • Indiana Jones In Real Life [Video]

    New York-based comedic performance group Improv Everywhere has made an Indiana Jones short filmed in Central Park and the Museum Of Natural History surrounded by entertained and confused onlookers. The recreation of the boulder scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark features plenty of bikini-clad sunbathers which will no doubt cause longing for those hot summer days that New Yorkers won’t experience for many months.

  • The 10 Worst Lines In Cinema History…Ever.

    Hollywood cinema is an American staple of escapist entertainment—pure, fanciful popcorn-consuming films meant to bring otherwise impossible scenarios to a heightened degree of tangibility. As with any fictional tale, the viewer must suspend disbelief in order to fully enjoy any film. But, with some films, there is an occasional line that is so cheesy, poorly written, poorly delivered, or otherwise cringe-worthy that it takes the viewer out of the universe of previous immersion. This begs the question: what are some of the lines in films that tarnish the entirety of the story?

  • Illustrations of Famous Cars and Quotes in Movies and TV (11 Illustrations)

    French illustrator Nicolas Bannister used an interesting technique combining two facets of pop culture and fusing them into posters; cars and quotes. Bannister used classic movies like Jurassic Park ‘s(Yes, it came out 20 years ago) iconic jeeps and Ghostbusters wagon, then threw in contemporary shows like the infamous Breaking Bad RV.
