Pharmacist Jeff Dodds of Waterford City, North Dakota prescribed this spray for a six-year old girl whose fear of monsters left her unable to sleep, because sometimes life is like a Pixar movie.

  6. 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. Pixar Businesses Get Beautiful Advertisements

    To infinity and beyond!

    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!

  8. 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.

  9. 10 Movies With Villains as Protagonists That We’d Totally Watch

    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.

  10. 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.

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

    it's time to play the music

    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)

  12. This Music Video Features Monsters of All Kinds, Makes You Doubt Your Sanity

    It's true that there's no accounting for taste. You may love music your best friend loathes, but have you ever watched a music video on YouTube that's just so crazy that you had to share it, no matter what the music was like? The new Bat For Lashes video, "Lilies," may be one of these. You probably know someone who'd love it just because it's got monster puppets and stop-motion fun. It's kind of like if David Bowie's Goblin King kidnapped Big Bird and Snuffleupagus, fused them together with Jeff Goldblum's Telepods from The Fly, then brought them to the land in Where the Wild Things Are. Oh, and then the monstrosities danced with a girl who was possessed by the ghost of Björk. Yeah, that's about right.

  14. Monstrously Unnecessary Godzilla Reboot Due in 2014

    In Which We Make A Terrible Pun

    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!

  15. The Girls of Tumblr’s Monster Girl Drawing Challenge

    G-G-G-Ghooooosts!

    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. (Warning: post may contain some sideboob.)

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

    Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

    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. (via Sketchlock)
