  5. It’s Monster vs. Robot in Pixarific Rim

    Peanut Butter and Chocolate

    Drifting inside Walle-E? Well, everybody keeps making Buzz and Woody jaegers, but personally I think Merida and Elinor would probably be pretty good. I mean, we could also say her little brothers, but Wall-E doesn't have a third arm. Previously in Pacific Rim

  7. The Sully Jaeger Can Protect Boo and Cancel The Apocalypse In This Pacific, Inc. Painting

    Warning: May Contain Feelings

    To fight monsters, the monsters created monsters. Artist James Hance recently finished this Pacific Rim and Monsters, Inc. mashup painting, in which he cast Monsters, Inc.'s Boo as Mako Mori, somehow managing to double the adorable little girl-monster moments of each film. Still, I can't help but think that Sully and Mike would make a terribly dysfunctional Jaeger piloting duo. You can purchase prints at Hance's website, where he also has a number of charming mash-up illustrations featuring Doctor Who, Up, Star Wars, and other nerdy subjects available in print form.

    We've seen the creatures in our closet pledge fraternities, but they can't be the only "bad guys" who went to college.

    It's become a trend in movies to have us explore villains as protagonists, and Despicable Me 2 is just the latest. Monsters University has us understanding and even rooting for the literal monsters, and Wreck-It-Ralph is all about a video game villain -- it's clear audiences like seeing the other side of traditional villains. Even the traditional zombies can be a romantic contender nowadays. That's why we've compiled a list of 10 movies featuring villains as protagonists that we'd totally watch.

  9. 7 Supernatural Creatures We Hope Never Get Sexy Hollywood Versions

    Folks, can we have some real talk for a second here? I'm totally down with the whole sexy monsters thing. I get it. Swayze worked it as a ghost. Vampires have had a certain sensual appeal since Stoker, and yeah, I'll even allow the 'sexy zombies' of Warm Bodies. But at some point, we need to draw a line in the sand, or, you know, several. In the interest of doing so, here are seven monsters that we never, ever want to see given the 'sexy monster' treatment by Hollywood. Not that we have a lot of pull in Hollywood, but dammit, it's worth a try.

    Now I'm imagining what Kermit could do with Legolas' dialogue. "They're taking the Hobbits to… gulp… Isengard." (by Kenny Durkin, via Laughing Squid)
