Let's all stop what we're doing for a moment and give thanks that Chet Phillips, the creator of the "ChetArt" illustration blog, is a big fan of the Coen brothers and wanted to do something about that. (The internet, in unison: "Thanks, Chet.")
The reason why we as the entire internet are thanking Chet today is that he has created multiple Coen brothers-themed prints featuring a seminal Coen brothers character surrounded by memorable quotes from the film in which that character appears. Above we have The Dude from "The Big Lebowski," but there's also Eddie Dane from "Miller's Crossing," McDunnough from "Raising Arizona," and Marge Gunderson from "Fargo" (below). And they're all, frankly, superb. Get More »
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.
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 »
With fiery explosions, unruly gunfights and frenzied superhero battles becoming essential to most nights out at the movies, there's something to be said about films that can do just the opposite, communicating a wealth of information with just the slightest nuanced motion.
Cinemagraphs, which bridge the gap between static images and video by adding a tiny dose of movement to otherwise inert still shots, are a perfect vehicle for delivering a single serving of cinematic awesomeness. These seven cinemagraphs capture some of our all-time favorite moments in film in a really cool way.
7. Animated Poster ('Pulp Fiction')
"Pulp Fiction"'s iconic poster art is such a classic that adding nothing but a slight animation of Uma's burning cigarette brings the it new life. A moment of attention from Mia Wallace is instantly transformed into a never-ending staring contest, and she’s clearly not going to take another puff of her cig until you blink. Get More »
The mustache isn't just facial hair. It's an art form, one few are able to master.
In honor of Movember, we salute some of the finest examples of the mustache in cinema, from Robert Pattinson's bizarre turn as Salvador Dali in "Little Ashes" to Tom Selleck in just about everything. The extreme levels of testosterone may make you feel a little woozy, but that's all part of the awesome.
Browse the most masculine gallery ever and wish you could grow a mustache as mighty.
As the 2012 presidential election quickly approaches (tomorrow! eek!), Americans must carefully analyze each candidate's policies and personalities to determine who they want to lead the country for the next four years.
And then there's the funnier — but not any less absurd — election at the center of "The Campaign," a new political satire pitting Will Ferrell's charismatic, gaffe-prone incumbent against Zach Galifianakis's Washington outsider in a North Carolina congressional race.
We're not sure we'd vote for either of these guys in real life, but you know who we would vote for? Yoda. And The Dude. And after "The Avengers," Hulk would most definitely get our endorsement.

Guys really love their balls. They love holding them, whacking them and chasing them with glee. And sometimes, men just like to gaze at their balls fondly. Yes, it's hard to get between a dude and a ball if his mind's set on playing with it.
A recently released photo of Michael Fassbender from the highly anticipated sci-fi epic "Prometheus" got us in the mood to explore this (totally wholesome and impossible to misconstrue) subject matter. So to keep you well-rounded on the topic, here's some great moments between man and man's true best friend.
Sacha Baron Cohen brings his trademark ridicu-shock humor to his new film "The Dictator," but it may be his beard that steals the show.
He plays Admiral General Aladeen, deposed dictator of the (fictional) Republic of Wadiya, who flees to the U.S. when his country converts to democracy. As a dictator, he's used to ruling with an iron fist, an incorrigible sense of righteous cruelty, and a thick, bushy beard that could house several terrified baby sparrows.
Aladeen may feel like a fish out of water in New York City, but he'd feel right at home among Hollywood's most magnificent beards of all time. Here's our ode to the greatest facial hair in movies, in 15 parts.
