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."
There may not be a movie so demonstrative of its era than "The Breakfast Club." Of course, you can look to most John Hughes movies to help define what the 80s were all about for angsty, emotional teenagers, but it's damn near impossible to name another movie -- even in the Hughes canon -- that so precisely details the trials and tribulations of the classic, all-American high school hierarchy.
Although the idea of five kids serving detention on a Saturday may not seem like anything special on paper, John Hughes made it a deeply touching, unforgettable classic.
But what if "The Breakfast Club" were made today? What if Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy, and the rest of the motley crue were high school students in the era of iPhones? Get More »
In the latest installment of "Anonymous People On The Internet Doing Fantastic Things With Their Spare Time," our wonderful friends at Buzzfeed stumbled upon a pairing as implausibly smooth as the school princess and the school bad boy: "The Avengers" and "The Breakfast Club."
Indeed, it's exactly what it sounds like: The Avengers trailer is shown with the Breakfast Club's trailer's narration over it, and for the most part, it fits like a glove. A fingerless glove defiantly holding a cigarette. Get More »
For incoming freshmen, college can be a big, scary new world. And between homework, class schedules and weird new roommates, there's enough to worry about without the added pressure of putting together a decent DVD collection.
So in order to help your new college experience go as smoothly as possible, we've put together a list of the 20 essential DVDs (or Blu-rays) that every new college freshman should own, including all the best movies for college's favorite pastimes: drinking, hooking up, studying and even smoking — you know, if you're into that (Mandatory Disclaimer: NextMovie does not condone underage drinking or illegal drug use).

In "The Woman in Black," Harry Potter himself (or rather, Daniel Radcliffe) takes on the darker side of the supernatural as he investigates a haunted estate and the dark history that brought one of its former residents back from the grave for revenge.
The "Woman" of the title is kind of a pain in the butt, what with all the murdering and all; but not every similarly clad woman is quite so gloomy. Some of our favorite filmic females have donned a dark look for some memorable roles, no doubt bolstered by the fact that black is slimming.
As Wesley Snipes said in "Passenger 57": "Always bet on black."
The new comedy "Take Me Home Tonight" celebrates the 1980s and all its excesses, from Mercedes-worship to Frankie Goes To Hollywood telling us all to relax.
The '80s was a time of rampant materialism and mohawks, and the only way people got through it -- like WWII -- was with laughter.
In honor of Topher Grace's nostalgic comedy, we're celebrating the 25 most-uniquely only-in-the-80's comedies, the ones where the hair was froofy, Eddie Murphy still brought the funny, and the geek inherited the Earth. Get More »
Search for your favorite film trailer on YouTube and you may be in for a disturbing surprise. More and more frequently, the makers of fine pornography everywhere have taken to churning out elaborate reproductions or "parodies" of Hollywood films.
These movies can be dead ringers for the originals, only the action has been replaced with...a different kind of action, and the acting has been replaced with...truly awful acting. We must admit: The trailers for these instant classics are fascinating, not for the sex (which is absent in the trailers) but for the way they earnestly strive for allusive respectability. Get More »
Cross-stitching, long the realm of grandmothers, Whitman's Chocolate samplers and the opening credits to the '80s TV horror show "Mama's Family," reeks of nostalgia. The bad kind. The kind that usually manifests itself in a lecture from an elderly person who may or may not be related to you. But it doesn't have to be that way.
This "Breakfast Club" cross-stitch sampler a BuzzFeed user discovered on Flickr proves that taking something tainted by the social security crowd's blurry whimsical views of "the way things used to be" and splicing it with the magic of "the ways things kind of were" from John Hughes' 1984's "The Breakfast Club" can be pretty amazing.

Reunited, and it feel so good.
Four of the five stars of "The Breakfast Club" reassembled at the Film Society at Lincoln Center earlier this week to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the film and pay homage to its director and teen-angst-master John Hughes, who died of a heart attack last summer.
The four actors at the screening — Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy... only Emilio Estevez was missing — all praised the late director as an outsize talent. Get More »
Virginity. It's the biggest thing you've ever lost… or will lose (just hang in there).
In some cultures, parents of a new bride will parade her sheets through town to prove the honeymoon night is her first time. Luckily, in America, we opt for our public displays of virginity and the loss thereof to be portrayed fictionally on film.
The latest to join the ranks are this month's "The Virginity Hit" and "Easy A." Get More »
