The 25 Most Impressive Movie Cakes Ever

Popcorn's great and all, but there's just something super-tasty about movie-inspired cakes.

As film bakery is a real thing these days, there are gobs upon gobs of delicious designs all over the place as many talented maestros are generous enough to pretty up the world with photos of their scrumptious gumption.

We like to recognize the creative ways people celebrate their various degrees of infatuation with the cinema, so we went through the painstaking (read: tummy grumble-inducing) process of scouring the interwebs to pluck the very best in show for these Tinseltown-inspired treats ... just in time for "The Big Wedding," opening April 26.

Grab a bib before you dig into these 25 ridiculously well-designed desserts, 'cause it's pretty much a guarantee you'll be drooling all over the place by the end of this list.

25. 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'

This delectable dish makes us sure the eighth dwarf would be named "Hungry."

2013 Oscar Predictions: Now With Every Category (Even the Shorts!)

Argo Warner Bros.

Updated Tuesday, Feb. 19.

Okay folks, it's crunch time. Have you submitted your Oscar ballot yet? There's big money on the line (at least a hundy we hope, right?).

As we do every year on NextMovie, we're handicapping the Oscar races to give you a leg up on your friends, family and coworkers when entering your high-stakes pool, which as we all know is as much about the glory as the greenbacks (freaking Al from finance still hasn't gotten that smirk off of his face for calling Cotillard over Christie in 2008; get over yourself, Al).

Our usual disclaimers: We do not condone gambling, unless you're in Vegas or on a reservation. Good luck!

The 9 Spookiest Kids' Movies

ParaNorman Focus Features

It's Halloween night. Do you know what movies your children are watching?

It wouldn't be the most wonderful holiday of the year without a double- or triple-feature of scary movies to go with the tricking and treating. While there are plenty of R-rated slasher flicks to please big brother and sister in the other room, there are also a fair amount of PG-rated spookfests that provide good, clean fun (and scares!) for the under-13 crowd in the basement.

Lessons From 'Frankenweenie': How To Be a Mad Scientist


So your dog got hit by a car. You can cry about it, you can blame Martin Short (it kinda was his fault) or you can take matters into your own hands. That's what young Victor Frankenstein does to bring his beloved pooch Sparky back from the grave in Tim Burton's feature-length stop motion animated film "Frankenweenie." He does it by following in the footsteps of the classic mad scientists that came before him.

So, if you find yourself looking to reanimate a corpse (or to make yourself invisible or a wolf or something) here are three things you are going to need to make that happen. Get More »

It's Alive! At Least, in 6 'Frankenweenie' Clips

Frankenweenie Disney

In 1984, visionary director Tim Burton made a short film  called "Frankenweenie" for Disney so unrelentingly weird they fired him from the studio. A few decades later, Disney's letting Burton make a feature length version ... with stop-motion animation ... in black and white. Yep, a few billion dollars in box office gives you clout.

Just like this charmingly ghoulish project was brought back from the movie graveyard, the main school-age character Victor Frankenstien brings his beloved dog Sparky back to life through the all-purpose miracle of lightning. These clips should put electrodes on your funny bone. Get More »

50 Movies That Could Easily Be Mistaken as Pornos

Frankenweenie Poster Disney

We hear what we want to hear.

I hear the movie title "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" and think, "That sounds like some A-grade sexytime action right there. Let's kill the lights."

But it's likely others would think, "That sounds like a delightful comedy featuring venerated British thespians, maybe even a dame or two. I should bring my mother."

Same goes for "Frankenweenie," Tim Burton's latest goth-family flick. It's not at all what you might think it is - at least if you're among the filthy-minded.

Here are 50 major movie releases that could be easily mistaken for adult fare, nominally anyway. Get More »
