Things We Saw Today: Kylo Ren Shows Up in Famous Scenes from Movies

What if Kylo Ren was in these famous movie scenes instead of, say, Clint Eastwood or Samuel L. Jackson? He certainly puts a twist on the classic scenes from 300 and A Few Good Men, that's for sure.

Minimalist Movie Posters, Made With Simple Sheets Of Paper

Get on my wall.

It feels almost unnecessary to write anything about artwork that manages to say so much with so little. My hat is off to the folks at Spanish design studio Atipo, who have proven the old adage about pictures being worth a thousand words.

Jaws Works Surprisingly Well With The Godzilla Trailer Audio

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the nuclear power plant.

I don't think anybody in Amity Island was really worried that a giant shark was going to "send them back to the Stone Age," but if we're going to keep on with the new trend of putting 2014's Godzilla trailer audio over video from other scary movies, then Jaws is obviously a good one to work with.

Thankfully a LEGO CUUSOO JAWS: Orca's Last Stand set might be dunun-duning into reality soon--but first the creator will need a bigger fan base to make it happen.

An Empassioned Fan’s Plea: Make Fifteen Jaws Movies to Maintain Back to the Future‘s Accuracy

Great Scott!

In case you don't remember, Back to the Future II contains a memorable scene where a dazzled Marty McFly, visiting the year 2015, is overwhelmed by a holographic advertisement for Jaws XIX, the 18th sequel to Steven Spielberg's Jaws. But, as Tumblrer Ctrayn points out, there are only four Jaws movies, which means movie studios have only six hundred and thirty two days to keep Back to the Future II from having a singular glaring continuity error. What? I'm sure the rest of the movie will turn out to be entirely accurate. Obviously, it's time to take things into our own hands, and if you'd like to join the mission of producing fifteen feature length Jaws "sequels," you should check this post on Tumblr, where folks have already shown enthusiasm for the project to the tune of more than 22 thousand notes. And, as Ctrayn says, "Even if your film is 40 straight minutes of a rubber shark floating quietly in a bathtub... it is still probably a more entertaining watch than Jaws: the Revenge."

Weird Safe Sex PSA Reminds Us That Condoms Are No Good for Stopping Daleks or Jaws [Video]

Let's just hope Doctor Who writers don't see this as some kind of weird dare.

We're imagining that there's either some kind of geek STD outbreak in the UK, or they're just tired of geeks making so many little geeks, because their Centre for HIV and Sexual Health has put out a geek-centric PSA about proper condom use. To be fair, we'd definitely have paid more attention if sex education involved Daleks and the Hulk.

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.

Jaws Re-imagined As a Heartwarming Family Tale [Video]

And All Was Right With the World

In case you happen to follow me -- or The Mary Sue -- on Twitter, you might know that I was on vacation in Orlando last week. But the day I left for said vacation, I was really disheartened to find out that the Jaws ride, one of the original attractions at Universal Studios when it opened in 1990, will be closing! So, I rode it one more time, and it was a truly sentimental experience. (Eh, not really.) In fact, the video above -- by Caleb Hepler -- echoes my feelings almost exactly. (Again, not really.) I'll miss that curious shark! (Ehhhhhh ... maybe a little.) (via Laughing Squid)
