10 Great Movies That Appear In 10 Other Great Movies

There are all sorts of reasons to see Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Ali: Fear Eats The Soul (debuting this week on Blu-ray, via The Criterion Collection), but here’s the one that finally clinched it for me: when they go see it in Middle of Nowhere. By inserting the earlier film into a later one, Nowhere’s director, Ava DuVernay, isn’t just telling us something about the kind of people who inhabit her story; she’s also savvily commenting on the kind of story she’s telling. And she’s not the only filmmaker to employ this very clever trick. … Read More

Amazing Playing Cards Inspired by Classic Cult Movies

If you’re a fan of cult movies, there are plenty of ways to show your love for them: posters on your wall, T-shirts on your chest, pictures in your social media profiles. But the good folks at the creative agency Human After All went beyond those obvious vehicles to find a genuinely cool bit of cult movie merchandising: cult movie playing cards, with each card in the deck illustrating a cinematic favorite. The decks are in production now, but its makers were kind enough to send us over a few samples; check them out after the jump, and follow them on Twitter or go to their website to find out how to get a set of your own. … Read More

Imagining the Quentin Tarantino-Directed ‘Natural Born Killers’ That Could Have Been

Twenty years ago today, moviegoers had their first opportunity to take in Natural Born Killers, Oliver Stone’s bloody, grim, and broadly satiric take on serial killers, celebrity culture, and tabloid media. But those who sought out the film on more obscure grounds were in for a disappointment. Quentin Tarantino was not yet a household name; he was still an acquired taste, thanks to the less-than-stellar box office of his 1992’s Reservoir Dogs (which he wrote and directed) and 1993’s True Romance (writer only). His small (yet rapidly expanding) cult following was thrilled at the prospect of a new Tarantino movie—but by the time Natural Born Killers reached the screen, it was no longer the movie Tarantino had penned. His screenplay had been so drastically rewritten, we were told, that he had elected only to take a “story by” credit. And that, presumably, was the last we’d hear about Mr. Tarantino’s Natural Born Killers. … Read More

Illustrations of Pop Culture’s Best Buds, From Doc and Marty to Walt and Jesse

The concept of the bromance is a long-standing trend in popular media, even if the term wasn’t really tossed around until the mid-aughts, thanks to Judd Apatow’s sensitive, aged frat-boy oeuvre. Now, illustrator Dave Collinson is celebrating the trend by paying tribute to pop culture’s best buds, from the Blues Brothers to Walt and Jesse. His collection, spotted via Digital Spy, is conspicuously lacking in any female friendships (what, no Thelma and Louise?), which makes it a bit bro-ish, but Collinson is continuously adding to it on his Tumblr, so maybe we’ll see some ladies represented eventually. In the meantime, check out his illustrations after the jump.  … Read More
