Guillermo del Terror

To celebrate the release of their latest Halloween offering, ‘Treehouse of Horrors XXIV’, Matt Groening is putting Simpsons’ iconic couch gag in the fantastically horrible hands of Guillermo del Toro (apparently they have a good eye for this).

Treehouse-of-Horror-XXIV

Del Toro did more than just a quick TV gag, he went to ghost town and created a 2 minute 45 second intro, transforming our beloved Simpsons’ characters into the most feared creatures from horror-history. The intro is packed with so many references it will keep your wide eyes glued to the screen for the entire time and even then you’d be hard pressed to spot them all. There is an obvious slant towards Del Toro’s on films but that just makes it more enjoyable, I  let out inward squeel when I saw Homer morph into a reaper from Blade 2 or on seeing  Groundskeeper Willie as  Red (Hellboy not Morgan Freeman).

The episode will air this Sunday (06/10/13). Happy Halloween everyone!

Thanks to @Steve_Jude for sending me this.

Seven PsychoCATS

If you can forego the slightly saccharine outlook of the forgivingly pretty presenters, then Clevver Movies is a really good YouTube channel to subscribe to. Regular uploads keep followers abreast of breaking trailers, movies and Hollywood goss… but never this-

Ex Cartoon Network and Adult Swim director (and all round doer) Jim Tozzi has recreated Martin McDonagh‘s Los Angeles criminal underworld… with cats.

Seven Psychocats

Based on the upcoming movie Seven Psychopaths (obvs), Tozzi has turned the all star cast into all star cats, to much amusement. For me, Christoph Walken makes the best pussy there but who’s you favourite famous feline?

Check out the original trailer here.

Kubrick // One-Point Perspective

When it comes to composition, they same symmetry is a cruel mistress. That is never more apparent than when in film. To use it insouciantly would be foolish but to master it… would be an art.

See a real master at work:

Charlie’s Meme

So I thought Friday and the weekend would have brought us far more Sheen Meme madness due to Thursday’s rant.  Sadly there was only a spattering and the most interesting of which was a meme generator.

So, for want of a better idea, I went about creating my own images…

THE BRIEF:

Combining the existing style of ‘LOL Cats‘ with a few choice Charlie quotes, create a range of nearly amusing images under the title…

We’ve also seen the Jefferson quote on YTMND.

More excitingly however, we finally have Charlie Sheen Soundboards!!!!

I’ve also been looking for a good aut0tuned version, but it appears there is not one (yet), but there’s quite a good dub-step remix.

Philips Movies

As far as I know, Philips is building up to a release of its Parallel Lines campaign with 5 completely different movies all based around the same script.

‘There are millions of ways to tell a story. There’s only one way to watch one.’

Brilliant!

The idea is clear and I’m already on the edge of my seat anticipating what the creative solutions are going to bring us.  And the trailer… meh.

You can follow Philips on facebook (Yes, clever arse.  You can follow many Phillips on facebook, but we’re talking about the electronics company now…  There’s always one.)
