I plan to write this short review on How To Train Your Dragon by Dreamworks, and I hope you can excuse my English and poor grammatical skills. I just came back from the theatre and I get so excited just thinking about it. Okay here goes!
Famed photographer Peter Lindbergh captures the essence of a movie star in his latest photo shoot for Italian Vogue. Shot in black-and-white, Nicole Kidman looks classic and timeless. I love how she can express so much with just the movements in her hands.…
This great video from Wired takes us behind the scenes of Alice in Wonderland and shows us how Tim Burton worked his magic to make the familiar story come alive in a new and exciting way. Using a green screen and "whatever works" Tim Burton combines a wide variety of techniques to develop these complex scenes. In many cases he couldn't even see the results until very late in production when everything was put together for the first time. He says "It’s been such a weird… Continue
I can't wait to watch this IMAX movie! This is not Sci-Fi. This documentary is the real deal. It's a real story about real brave astronauts who go on a real mission and it also shows us real mind blowing images made for us to gawk at in utter amazement. All brought to you in full 3D glory.
Here's the synopsis, and release date info quoted from the amazing website devoted to this movie:
Leave it to Banksy to have the UK premiere of his film at a makeshift 150-seat cinema built under Waterloo train station.

This is slowly creeping through the internet. I actually found this kinda funny given Wes Anderson's melodramatic style. It answers the question, "What if Wes Anderson Rebooted the Spider-Man Franchise?" The parody was created by Jeff Loveness. Watch and let me know what you… Continue
Sherlock Holmes[Watch It] A fantastic opening title sequence can set the tone for an amazing movie experience. If done well, it'll grab the viewer's attention and give them a sneak peek into their magical journey. Just as important is the closing credits. Rather than just watch names…
Because I love the twisted mind of Spike Jonze, I'm actually looking forward to seeing more of his 30-minute short film titled I'm Here. Plus, how can you go wrong with a robot love story? Recently premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, the film was funded by Absolut Vodka.
Back to the Future If you're like me, you've been following all this late night drama. As we shed a collective tear tonight, I present to you these hilarious late night movie mashups. Gizmodo recently asked their readers to Photoshop the current late night battle with their favorite science fiction movie. Here are some of the best entries received. Make sure you read the text on…
Just who will land in the coveted ten Best Picture nominee spots for this year's Oscars? 10, you may ask? Yes, 10. The best picture lineup at the Academy Awards doubled from five films to ten this year. It's the first time since 1943 that the Academy has allowed this many films in that category.
"After more than six decades, the Academy is returning to some… Continue
While some would argue that Pixar's 10th animation film is not their best, I wholeheartedly disagree. Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Monsters and Wall-E are nothing compared to Up. Director and co-screenwriter Pete Docter and co-director and co-writer Bob Peterson took Up to new heights - creating a sweet love story in the beginning, an exciting… Continue

This flowchart from the 1940s tells you exactly how to get your movie made. It all stems from the IDEA. As you can see, ideas come from either "Play," "Short Story or Novel," "Newspaper Story or Current Event," "Original Story," "Magazine Article," or "Historical Incident." A critical connection off the left side however is the "Vice President in Charge of Production." He can definitely make things happen! I wonder what the same chart… Continue
Last night, my future sister-in-law, my good friend Vic, and I went to the Paramount Studios lot to watch This is It, the Michael Jackson movie/concert experience. After battling 2 1/2 hours of traffic, I made it there and begged my way through (the guys at the main gate said the movie was full but my sad, traffic sob story sold them and they let me in). I… Continue
George Clooney + Ewan McGregor + Kevin Spacey + Jeff Bridges = Movie Magic. I can't wait for this!

While putting together this post, I had a hard time with the title. I was going to include the words retro or vintage but then I thought - Are most of these retro or are some of these modern? Here was my conclusion: While some of these illustrations have that retro-feel, most are a modern take on a movie classic.
What these artists have done so well is take a… Continue
