Here Is A Dog That Snores Just Like The Inception Score


Have you ever found yourself thinking, "Yeah, things are good - but they'd be way better if I had my own dramatic soundtrack?" Like, if the music from Pacific Rim or Skyrim just trailed you everywhere? If so, maybe consider investing in a dog like this one, whose snores perfectly capture the infamous BRAAHM sound from Hans Zimmer's Inception score.

10 Good Guys Who Are Major-League Jerks

Power Grid

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.

Great, More Things We Want to Own: Awesome Original Poster Art of Some of Our Favorite Movies

Almost Totally Excellent

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.

Take a Look Behind the Scenes of Some Classic Films

i'll just leave this here

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.

What If Christopher Nolan Made a James Bond Movie With Michael Fassbender? [Video]

Consider the Following

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... (via Movieline)

Cinema Alternatif: Movies From a Parallel Earth

All this has happened before...

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.

6 Movie Posters That Think Outside-The-Box

The Rise of the Empire, the Fall of Vader and the Victory of the Rebellion… As Told by Charlie Chaplin

Watch Inception In One Minute, as Told By Fans

And Fansplosions Abound

Will we ever get tired of Inception related videos? No not never ever ever never ever never ever ever. Oh, also there are a million million spoilers in this video. Vancouver's Virgin Radio 95.3 Fake Film Festival recently invited people to submit compressed, fan-made versions of well-known films. Considering most of the contestants did not have access to the A-list actors and millions of dollars worth of special effects, what they made was, at the very least, pretty entertaining. Our favorite part of this Inception summary is the depiction of the slow-motion van drop sequence, mixed with their version of Joseph Gordon-Levitt floating around the hotel. And the children! The children. To watch more compressed film entries (Including Back to the Future), go here. (via Mental Floss)
