Let’s Get Surreal: A Supercut of Dream Sequences

Frankly, I think the use of clips from Inception here is kind of cheating since that movie didn’t so much have dream sequences as it was a dream sequence, but this is still very cool. Not to mention unsettling. Warning: video contains gore, body horror, and Jeff Bridges dancing.

Ahh, it’s good to see The Bechdel Test used where it is most applicable: as a lens through which to expose a misrepresentational trend in modern film overall rather than specifically. Vocativ took nearly fifty of this year’s top grossing blockbusters, sorted them by whether they failed or passed the test. Turns out movies that passed were significantly more financially successful than not.

Gosh I Love Arrows: A Look at Archery in Film

Slacktory calls this a “definitive” look at archer characters in film, but, while I respect their effort, that’s a dangerous thing to say on the internet. After all, I didn’t see Hannah or Guinevere here!

The Wizard of Oz Is The Oldest Film Ever To Be Converted To 3D [VIDEO]

As much as I don’t care for post-conversion 3D or IMAX in general, I will definitely be seeing The Wizard of Oz when it’s re-released September 20th. Of course I’d go and see it just as quickly if it were being showed in it’s original format but after watching this video showing the process of how it’s all done, I’m looking forward to seeing the results.
