  2. A Mom Explains Inception Like Only a Mom Can to Our Infinite Amusement

    I, too, thought Matt Damon was great in this movie.

    Movies retold by mom may be the single most relatable concept on YouTube. Poor Leo. Hey, he was great in those Bourne movies!

  3. Here Is A Dog That Snores Just Like The Inception Score


    Have you ever found yourself thinking, "Yeah, things are good - but they'd be way better if I had my own dramatic soundtrack?" Like, if the music from Pacific Rim or Skyrim just trailed you everywhere? If so, maybe consider investing in a dog like this one, whose snores perfectly capture the infamous BRAAHM sound from Hans Zimmer's Inception score.

  5. 10 Good Guys Who Are Major-League Jerks

    Power Grid

    Sometimes good guys are actually "good" guys. They treat people well, they help old ladies across the street, their good intentions are matched by their positive (not necessarily chipper or anything, but at least nice) personality. And sometimes good guys are just jerks.

  6. Great, More Things We Want to Own: Awesome Original Poster Art of Some of Our Favorite Movies

    Almost Totally Excellent

    Sometimes, the posters for our favorite movies just don't match the things they make us feel. They're too glossy, too obviously airbrushed, maybe they feature the faces of the actors a little (or a lot) more prominently than they do any actual idea of the movie. This is precisely what makes this poster art by artist Adam Rabalais so cool. The volume itself is impressive; the quality even more so. Click through the jump to see some of our favorites.

  7. Take a Look Behind the Scenes of Some Classic Films

    i'll just leave this here

    As the saying goes, "a picture can say a thousand words." This is especially true when we've already had entire movies made surrounding the topics of said pictures, and thus thousands of words pre-associated with them. Nevertheless, these pictures from behind the scenes of some of the past century's most memorable films still find more to say all by their lonesome selves.

  8. Famous Sci-Fi Scenes Painted As 16th Century Ottoman Miniatures

Hit the jump to marvel at his art/mourn the mediocrity of your thesis in comparison!

  9. What If Christopher Nolan Made a James Bond Movie With Michael Fassbender? [Video]

    Consider the Following

    Just an idea to run by all of you, as we find ourselves in the midst of a very busy and exciting summer of gigantic movies, including Prometheus and the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises. Throw in a little Marvel magic, a little more Christopher Nolan, put the spotlight on Michael Fassbender, and choose a different franchise -- Bond. James Bond. Now, imagine a 007 origin story starring Fassbender, directed by Nolan. Does the trailer above come anywhere close? I'll let you make that call. Keep in mind: Daniel Craig might be vacating the Bond role... (via Movieline)

  10. Cinema Alternatif: Movies From a Parallel Earth

    All this has happened before...

    I'll say right now that I would totally watch a badly cut together remake of Avatar that uses color-shifted clips from Star Trek, West Side Story, and The Longest Day, and laugh and laugh. This poster, like those that come after it, cut right to the heart of a cinematic time period and the taste of Hollywood at the time, to point out that if this story had shown up in that era, William Shatner would totally have gotten his way into a blue girl's pants, and no better blue girl than the one who Hollywood already considered to be an virginal all-American sweetheart capable of passing for an ethnicity she clearly was not. Venture on with us, into movies that never happened... except in the other leg of the Trousers of Time.

  11. 6 Movie Posters That Think Outside-The-Box

    eye candy

    Movie posters tend to fall in the same, boring design scheme. The stars looking off into the distance or a simple logo with a lame tagline. What we wouldn't give for Hollywood to search the internet and hire some folks who really know how to design with inspiration. Here are a few such examples.

  13. The Rise of the Empire, the Fall of Vader and the Victory of the Rebellion… As Told by Charlie Chaplin

    For A More Civilized Age

    I bet you didn't think that you'd find a Star Wars/Inception/Charlie Chaplin mashup today that would almost make you cry. But here we go. Footage from The Empire Strikes Back and Clone Wars, music from Inception, and audio from the immortal The Great Dictator. We highly recommend it. Stick it out to the end. Watch this.

  14. Watch Inception In One Minute, as Told By Fans

    And Fansplosions Abound

    Will we ever get tired of Inception related videos? No not never ever ever never ever never ever ever. Oh, also there are a million million spoilers in this video. Vancouver's Virgin Radio 95.3 Fake Film Festival recently invited people to submit compressed, fan-made versions of well-known films. Considering most of the contestants did not have access to the A-list actors and millions of dollars worth of special effects, what they made was, at the very least, pretty entertaining. Our favorite part of this Inception summary is the depiction of the slow-motion van drop sequence, mixed with their version of Joseph Gordon-Levitt floating around the hotel. And the children! The children. To watch more compressed film entries (Including Back to the Future), go here. (via Mental Floss)

    Things We Saw Today

    Here are just the latest interpretations of what the Star Wars cast would look like if they were battling the Sith in 1945. Although, Star Wars already takes place a "long time ago," but I guess in that "galaxy far, far away," things were more advanced than they were on Earth. (At Bit Rebels)

  18. Joseph Gordon-Levitt Signs On For Nolan’s Third Batman Movie

    Officially Official

    Groovy actor of the moment Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who co-starred in Christopher Nolan's Inception, will reunite with the director for the third installment of Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises. This announcement comes after six weeks of negotiations, but there is no official word on who Gordon-Levitt will be playing. Nolan already ruled out the Riddler, but other names being thrown around are Deadshot and Alberto Falcone, son of crime boss Carmine Falcone, who was introduced in Batman Begins. Gordon-Levitt will also be reunited with Inception costars Tom Hardy and Michael Caine. Update: Bleeding Cool appears to be confirming that Gordon-Levitt is playing Alberto Falcone.

  19. Paper Cut-Out Inception In 60 Seconds [Video]

    Using paper cut outs and a standard digital camera, Wolfgang Matzl creates this highly truncated version of Inception. Despite the limited time and production, the cartoon still has some of the visual tricks of the source material. The opening, showing an unfolding building, is particularly clever. But my favorite part has to be the deadpan dialogue. "Oh, wait a minute. I still have to finish this job. In my dream." (via Cartoon Brew)

  20. The 83rd Academy Awards: Kinda Meh


    The challenge for every blogger covering the Academy Awards this year seems to be to make a reasonably interesting-sized molehill out of a regular molehill. No one movie won more than four awards, there weren't any breakout surprises, and the most shocking thing about the broadcast seems to be that Melissa Leo used the f-word. Come on.  Last year Ben Stiller showed up in a Na'vi costume. And unlike last year, the number of really beloved genre films treated to nominations was slim. Inception, the tent pole movie of many a geek's 2010 summer managed to pull only half of the awards it was nominated for, and half of those wins were Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing, the two Oscar categories that no one can ever remember the difference between. Yes, yes, unless you're in film school.
