Some people spend most of their time in front of a computer ... and others go out and do stuff like this.
Behold some of the most elaborate and large-scale movie-themed fan art you'll ever see, most of it created under cover of night with a few spray cans and a seething desire to create ... or at least conjure stunning portraits of Neo, Freddy Krueger, Yoda, the Dude and other pop culture icons that shape our everyday lives. If only all walls were this cool.
Is there some 8-bit wizard out there who could make our arcade fantasies come true?
Alas, we've got a pocket full of quarters but only a handful of "What If?" game cartridges. We'd love to walk in the pixelated footsteps of Donnie Darko, get stuck in a loop on "Groundhog Day" and rule the blocky beaches of Miami with Tony Montana. And we will. In our 1-octet dreams. Get More »
Whenever a movie studio announces plans for another remake, the reaction among fans and pundits is always the same: Hollywood doesn't have any new ideas.
But we like to look on the bright side of things, which is why we're so happy when we hear of a cool remake or reboot. Hey, who needs new ideas when there are already so many great old ideas waiting to be rediscovered?
With that in mind, we've compiled a list of 50 — that's right, 50! — upcoming Hollywood remakes that tickle our fancy. Because if these films were good the first time, you never know, you might just enjoy them even more the second time around. Get More »
Many of us go to the movies to escape our daily grinds by putting ourselves in the shoes of a stranger. And if that stranger happens to be loaded? Even better! Just call it wishful thinking.
In honor of "one percenter" Bruce Wayne (a.k.a. Batman), who is set to show off his latest expensive bat toys in the highly anticipated final entry to Christopher Nolan's trilogy, "The Dark Knight Rises," we've weeded through the most memorable tycoons to grace the silver screen to bring you our picks for the top nine "one percenters" ever committed to celluloid.

When most people hear the word "Mafia," it conjures up images of "The Godfather," "Goodfellas" and "The Sopranos." But Italian-Americans are hardly the only ethnic group to establish large organized crime rings.
Irish mobsters regularly challenged the Cosa Nostra for territory throughout American history -- and like their Italian counterparts, their conquests have made for some damn fine movies, dating all the way back to the James Cagney vehicles of the 1930s. Get More »
The only thing surprising about this news is that it took so long to happen.
Universal Pictures has officially deemed it time to once again tell the story of a crime lord and his little friend as it preps a "Scarface" for the 21st century, according to Deadline.
The epic tale of corruption and violence has been told on the big screen twice before in the Howard Hughes-produced 1932 film starring Paul Muni and in Brian De Palma's 1983 cult classic starring Al Pacino as the endlessly quotable Tony Montana. Get More »
It's hard to fathom that "Scarface" -- a gangster movie that has become an iconic inspiration to rappers everywhere -- was maligned during its theatrical release in 1983 for its glorification of violence and unapologetic profanity, the very things that make it the ultimate cult classic.
Directed by Brian De Palma with a script by Oliver Stone, this remake of the 1932 film of the same name is really a twisted look at the American Dream and how out-of-control greed and corruption pervert that dream into one man's waking nightmare. Get More »
