If you’ve seen movies like “Shaun of the Dead” or “The World’s End”, you already know the work of Edgar Wright… and you also know he’s a master of visual comedy. His films use elements forgotten by much of the comedy genre, not to mention mainstream filmmakers as a whole. Good thing for us Tony Zhou has created a hilarious, and thought provoking critique of Wright’s sight-gags and British visual comedy as a whole, while pointing out the general laziness found in many Hollywood comedies.

The Many Faces of Bill Murray: How Many Do You Know?

Steve Murrays The Many Faces of Bill Murray header

As far as actors go, you won’t find many more universally loved than Bill Murray. Whether he’s hilariously trying to blow up gophers in Caddyshack or wowing us with subtlety in Lost in Translation, his appearances are almost always memorable – even if they’re just momentary cameos. Now Steve Murray (no relation) has created an fantastic visual compilation for the National Post, capturing The Many Faces of Bill Murray over the years. It starts with The Rutles in 1978, finishes with his recent appearance in The Grand Budapest Hotel, and misses very few acts in between (only two early bits of voice work). Can you remember them all?

If All Movies Were Made in the Mid-Century, These Would Be the Posters

Laurent Durieux Retro Movie Posters 1

I would SO go to more movies if the posters looked like these! Imagine every film existed in some time-suspended mid-century wonderland; the posters might look a lot like these exquisite remakes from Laurent Durieux. His perfect images capture movies from yesterday and today, all rendered with a delicious illustrative style that harkens back to the streamlined sensibilities of Raymond Loewy with the sci-fi imagination of H.G. Wells. Laurent creates posters caught in a perfect, Pleasantville-esque world, where days are sunny, and the good guys are really good. [Read more...]
