Cats: They're such divas. Adorable, adorable little divas. They rule our world, so why not the cinematic one?
We obliged our feline friends by reimagining eight movies — with the aid and inspiration of our Twitter followers — starring cats instead of humans. Really, we can only dream of such cinematic purrfection.
The first one out the gate? Why, "The Great Catsby," of course. F. Scott Fitzgerald concluded that the pursuit of the American dream could only lead to a dirty litter box at best, after all.
How much of an underrated presence has Steve Buscemi been in all of our lives?
Over the span of 25 years, he's gone from "King of the That Guys" (current co-Kings: Bruce McGill and James Cromwell) to "Oh, right — that's an actor named Steve Buscemi" to "Steve Buscemi" to "Golden Globe-Winning Steve Buscemi" to, finally, "Champion of Our Hearts Steve Buscemi." Get More »
Hey, have you ever noticed that there are a ton of people killed in every Quentin Tarantino movie? You have? Us, too. It would be interesting if someone took the time to sit through every one of his films and not only count the number of dead people, but tell us how they all died. If a cool graphic was made about it, all the better. Get More »
Making "Django Unchained" must have really been a major challenge for Quentin Tarantino. Not because of the sensitive topic of slavery or the issue of historical accuracy or anything like that, mind you. This is Tarantino, he doesn't care about that nonsense. No, it must have been a major challenge because there was no easy way for him to fill "Django Unchained" with dozens of obscure pop culture references.
If you chart the course of Quentin Tarantino, you see a video store clerk who was able to cut and paste his infinite index of film knowledge to create some of the most memorable pop characters of the last two decades.
Now Vulture's Jesse David Fox has taken the liberty of translating those characters into ACTUAL charts, albeit ones that might be inappropriate for your next office PowerPoint presentation. Get More »
Whether you're a wheelman, the stickup guy or the muscle, everyone has a part to play in the intricate Swiss watch that is a heist. Sometimes jobs go awry, as they do in the new Brad Pitt thriller "Killing Them Softly," which is why we thought we'd put together a comprehensive list of the do's and don't's of armed robbery.
Remember, kids, we're not condoning the numerous monetary and personal rewards of pulling off a heist, not to mention the rush which we understand is thrilling. Get More »
The Easter Bunny arrives this Sunday, April 8! Though it's actually a religious holiday, our favorite part of Easter has always been painting Easter eggs (well, and eating Peeps until we throw up).
But this year, maybe it's time to get a little more ... interesting with your artwork.
Courtesy of Old Red Jalopy, we present eight movie-inspired Easter eggs that have just a little bit more edge than your standard variety stripes and polka dots. The Easter Bunny won't know what hit him.
Film stars and fashion go together like a horse and carriage and killer leather riding boots, and while you may live you life in Levi's jeans and Gap tees (no shame in that), you can't help but admire those chosen few who wear next season's styles like they were meant for today.
With "Crazy Stupid Love" hitting DVD and Blu-ray (featuring the ultra-fashionable Mr. Ryan Gosling), we decided it was high time to pay homage to nine movie characters whose personal styles turned the silver screen into the world's biggest runway.
Originally published Sept. 7, 2011.
With critics figuratively swooning and audiences literally fainting, Danny Boyle's disarming new film "127 Hours" has become the "Dare I see it?" movie of the season.
The inspirational tale chronicles the real-life ordeal of hiker Aron Ralston (James Franco), who became trapped under a boulder and cut off his own arm to escape. The graphic depiction has left the squeamish running for the exits and us reminiscing about scenes we love to watch through our fingers. Get More »
