Titanic Super 3D

In case you haven’t heard, James Cameron has rereleased his 1997 opus Titanic in 3D. In fact, in some foreign theaters you can even see the film with added smells and vibrations. Well, that’s all well and good, but I’m here to tell you about something even better: Titanic Super 3D. Comedy group PistolShrimps released an exclusive preview of the expanded super edition of Titanic for which Cameron apparently consulted with a few special guest directors and even equipped theaters with extra-special effects. I can’t wait.


Jar Jar Binks Biopics

Hey everybody, the first Star Wars prequel just got rereleased in 3D, and that means one thing: The return of Jar Jar Binks, everyone’s favorite Star Wars character, right? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Okay, so nobody likes Jar Jar, but what if Jar Jar was a more noble character. Maybe what Jar Jar needs is an image make over. In fact, the good people at NextMovie decided to ask what would a Jar Jar Binks biopic look like?

So take a look at their gallery of potential Jar Jar biopic movie posters inspired by Oscar winning films like Milk, The King‘s Speech and Patton. Go give the Gungan’s posters a gander.

David Bowie Movies

Here’s a shocking fact for you: David Bowie, the Thin White Duke himself, turned 65 this year. In tribute to the anniversary of Ziggy Stardust’s birth, Empire Magazine asked its readers to imagine what certain movies would look like if they starred David Bowie. Empire‘s readers acted quickly and created several wonderful photoshopped movie posters including this Labyrinth inspired poster seen here. Some of the other great creations include such imagined films as the graphic novel adaptation Frank Miller’s Suffragette City, Brian De Palma’s classic glam crime film Starface, and Pixar’s animated masterpiece Bow-E.

Check all of the Bowie inspired titles over at the Empire forums.

Death Star Wedding Cake

That’s no moon, that’s a wedding cake. At right you’ll see the new Mr. and Mrs. Stormtrooper sitting atop the Death Star. This cute cake was created by Napa, California bakery Sweet on Cake. You have to admire the detail that the Sweet on Cake team put on this delicious replica of the most powerful weapon in the galaxy. As great as all that is, what I really love is Mrs. Stormtrooper’s wedding dress. For more fun and beautiful cakes, check out the Sweet On Cake website’s cake gallery.

Oscar Gold

Well, yesterday saw the announcement of the Academy Award nominations and there’s already a bit of a backlash against the Best Picture nomination for Post-9/11 drama Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close. In fact, with only a 48% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s the worst reviewed picture of the last ten years to receive a Best Picture nomination. Some critics have accused this movie of being exploitive, cloying and “a naked ploy for an Oscar.”

So, in the spirit of this blatant (and frighteningly successful) piece of Oscar bait, here’s Seth McFarlane’s take on the kind of movie designed especially for Oscar gold, as featured on American Dad. Seriously, if this were real it would certainly be a winning card in¬† “Oscar nomination bingo.”

Movies Cover Lionel Richie

Today we bring you, courtesy of Vimeo user ant1mat3rie, a clever mash-up of various film clips arranged so that the dialogue forms the lyrics to Lionel Ritchie’s creeper R&B hit “Hello.” It’s a fun clip, but really that’s not what I want to talk to you about.

I want to talk to you about censorship. If you’ve been on the internet today, you’ve probably heard about SOPA and PIPA, two bills currently working their ways through the United States Congress that are allegedly designed to curb internet piracy. On the surface, that all seems well and good, but if these two bills pass it could lead to the censorship of the internet. Websites could be fined or even forced to shut for posting or even providing links to “copyrighted content.”

Now how does it effect you? Well, did you watch the goofy “Hello” clip yet? Did you enjoy seeing all those copyrighted film clips combining to form that copyrighted pop hit? Well, if SOPA and PIPA were to pass not only would that magically stupid clip be illegal, but vimeo; this blog and wordpress.com would all have performed illegal acts by featuring that video.

In conclusion, if you enjoy all the strange, goofy, creative, entertaining and magnificent things I post on this blog, it is your duty to voice your opposition to SOPA and PIPA. So, join Google, Wikipedia, Reddit, myself and hundreds of other websites in protesting these careless bills. Go to Google now to join the fight against internet censorship.

The Sith Who Stole Christmas

Really, the stories of the Grinch and Darth Vader are all about redemption. The Grinch gives up his Grinchy ways and learns the meaning of Christmas, Darth Vader betrays the Emperor and liberates the galaxy.¬† As these two tales explore similar themes, it was only a matter of before someone combined How The Grinch Stole Christmas with Darth Vader’s Star Wars journey. Youtuber OneMinuteGalactica¬† has taken clips of Darth Vader and synched them with Boris Karloff’s Grinch narration and Thurl Ravenscroft’s legendary rendition of “You’re A Mean One, Mister Grinch” to give a slightly different take on the tale of the Grinch and the Whos.
