There historical female military leaders are here to kick butt and chew bubble gum, and they're all out of bubble gum.
What's with the name?

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.READ MORE

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.READ MORE

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.READ MORE

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…

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.READ MORE

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.READ MORE

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 Return of the Jediand 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.
