“Icon” Art Show Illustrates the Essence of Pop Culture Classics Jurassic Park, Big, and More

It Belongs in a Museum!

Starting at Los Angeles' Gallery 1988 West this Saturday, June 14th, "Icons" showcases the work of Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman, collectively known as DKNG. The technical talk is that "icon" refers to the object in a show or movie that distills its essence—like the DeLorean in Back to the Future, or the barge for Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The non-technical talk is that this series of art is really damn pretty, and more people need to do Beavis & Butt-head illustrations.

The Streams Have Officially Crossed: Ghostbusters Might Be Getting the Room 237 Treatment

I always thought there was more to the symbolic nature of Slimer.

Ghostbusters is one of the best comedic films of all time,  but you know what it doesn't have? A meticulously overwrought movie-length dissection of visual imagery and loosely related symbolic meanings done entirely by overenthusiastic fans. You know, like the one that director Rodney Ascher put together for Stanley Kubrick's The Shining in his documentary, Room 237. Luckily some inventive YouTube users have stepped up to fill this void and released a trailer for their own documentary, Spook Central, meant to uncover hidden truths in the 1984 classic. Wait -- 1984! Like the book! That's probably intentional! So many meanings to unpack.

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.
