It’s Monster vs. Robot in Pixarific Rim

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.

Pixar Businesses Get Beautiful Advertisements

Over the course of their history, Pixar has created some incredibly memorable worlds– and with those worlds, the fictional establishments that inhabit them. Any kid who’s seen Toy Story could identify Pizza Planet, or Al’s Toy Barn. Artist Mario Graciotti paid homage to these places with this series of posters based on all of the best Pixar businesses. Remember these? Check out the gallery to see!

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

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.

The Muppets as Characters in The Walking Dead, The Lord of the Rings, Other Less Than Kid-Friendly Movies and TV Shows

Now I’m imagining what Kermit could do with Legolas’ dialogue. “They’re taking the Hobbits to… gulp… Isengard.”

Monstrously Unnecessary Godzilla Reboot Due in 2014

We sympathize with the journalist

Today, in Completely Arbitrary and Unnecessary Reboots (an occurrence now so rampant I feel it deserves its own section of the entertainment Internet, much less this site), Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have announced their intentions to release a new Godzilla movie on May 16, 2014. This trundling behemoth is being wheeled out once again by its US licensees, and we’re going to have to contain our surprise as best we can when the beast levels a famous landmark. C’mon! We just rebuilt that!



The Girls of Tumblr’s Monster Girl Drawing Challenge

Drawing challenges (when artists vow to draw according to a set schedule or list of subjects) come and go on Tumblr, which is quite the visual blogging platform, but this one caught our interest tightly and wouldn’t let go. After all, girls don’t get to be the big, powerful, scary or inhuman monster that often.

Is This Adorable Demon Good, Evil, Or Just A Great Friend? [VIDEO]

The definitions of “good” and “evil” get toyed with in this animated short by Phillip Simon. It was the thesis film he worked on with Alyse Miller for the Ringling College of Art and Design and features two very different young girls and what happens when they don’t get along. I’ll leave it up to you how to view the main characters but needless to say, the quality is top-notch and the monsters, they are adorable.
