Absolutely adored Judy Hopps, so I had to draw her! The left was my first go and while it’s all sass, I wanted some optimistic Judy, so I went again for another more happier picture.
EDIT**: Found the artist, check out Votric’s Deviant Art Page!
This picture of the Parr family in the future is both awesome and adorable. How about awesomely adorable. The Incredibles is probably one of my favorite Pixar movies. Here we have Bob and Helen, aged and still very in love, but what’s even cooler is how their kids have grown. Violet seems to have adapted her father’s older costume, Dash seems to have added a little Frozone flair, and then Jack-Jack went traditional. I want an entire back story to this: Their names, arch nemeses, and how their powers have changed. And more Frozone. I’d like to see Frozone’s family as well…Pixar, will you please make Incredibles 2 with this as your inspiration?
Growing up amidst the all encompassing world of modern societal media, it is no surprise that a lifetime of movies depicting everyday life has begun to effect how many of us view our own lives. Sometimes the influences of movies have effects we aren’t even aware of, but are simply embedded in our minds and accepted as fact. I will describe some of these interesting facts below, and illustrate some examples of cinematic misinformation.
This is a cool video mashing up Disney characters with Tina Fey’s awesome teenage movie Mean Girls. We’ve featured Disney mash ups before, like The Dark Knight Rises, Sin City, and
Game of Thrones, but this one is purely Disney Princesses, which is really neat. I really liked Mean Girls and you might even think Lindsay Lohan had a career ahead of her, but no. She squandered it away on being crazy. It’s okay Lindsay, Tina Fey and Amanda Seyfried are doing more than enough well to make up for your faults.
Talented artist FerioWind combined two favorite pop culture worlds: Marvel and Pokemon. In each of these pictures, Avengers major players have been paired with fitting Pokemon. Thor and his electrics, Loki and his dark types, etc. etc. I particularly like the irony of Hulk’s Pokemon being the cuddliest. I suppose it calms him. I am a generation 1 + 2 man, so some of these don’t register with me, but combining Hawkeye and Pidgeot was a good call. Below I’ve compiled all their individual profiles with the addition of Agent Phil and others!
I stumbled upon this hilarious image about how movie heroes get their girls. It starts off a little satirical, but by the end, it gets absurd and disgusting. Haha, Spider Man not being himself rings true, but by the time you get to Buffalo Bill, it’s pretty dark. I honestly only recognize 14/15, the one not being the bottom left. Someone please remind me what movie that’s from and what the connection to geting women is.
Personally, my method is playing the, ‘I’m an editor-in-chief of a popular internet blog’. It does not work. I am still single.
Another awesome Disney Mash Up. We’ve seen Sin City and Game of Thrones, and now we have Batman version of Disney. While the other two featured a large spectrum of Disney characters, this one focuses only on The Lion King. Regardless, it’s really well done. Scar makes a really good Bane and Zazu/Rafiki as an even better Alfred. And the Hyenas fit he chanting really well. I’m always shocked how well the lip syncing fits with the actual dialogue. Check out the video above!
For those who don’t know, Nigel Thornberry is a cartoon character from the Nickelodeon show The Wild Thornberrys. He has a very distinct facial structure and mannerisms that the internet has taken advantage of. By implanting his face on many Disney princesses and other popular culture, he’s become a meme for the shock value and disturbing combination of a perfect body and hideous face. I’ve divided this post into 4 pages because .GIF files are known to slow pages down.
Disney Princesses are an object of beauty and perfection. It’s natural that they’d be featured on the cover of Disney Vogue. It’s actually kinda neat how deatiled the magazine itself is. I can’t read the artist or else I’d definitely credit them. Someone please holla if you know!
If there was ever a way to start off a very promising blockbuster summer, The Avengers was a proper way to do it. If there are any movie/Marvel skeptics out there, it takes a lot of stubborn ignorance to deny the marvel (Oh lulz I get it!) of what has been accomplished here. Starting in 2008 as a vague idea that may or may not form came a movie with so much star power and ambition that it was easy to dismiss this as an action-oriented ‘Valentine’s Day’ that had so many A-listers that each one would eventually be fighting for star power and screen time. Not only this, but there are 60 years of myth-lore and a rabid fan base that had to be dealt with for this movie to be successful.
It’s almost amazing how it all turned out. In 4 years, Marvel meticulously planned in each of their corresponding movies how they would set up this behemoth. Without these previous movies, character development of these famed heroes would be lost. So after countless infamous post-credit cut scenes in The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America, Joss Whedon delivered what was thought to be the impossible. A coherent, action-packed, well-written 2 and a half hour ride that perfectly balances its down to Earth heroes and deliciously evil villain despite an ambitiously star-studded cast. Slight spoilers.
Was Snow White’s first instinct to clean the house sexist? Moviefone has compiled a list of children’s movies that caught flak for possibly containing some insensitive humor. Obesity, anti-oil, and hidden sex images are mentioned, but it’s up to you to believe if the company meant to add them. I personally like to think so because I like the idea of movie writers and producers snickering in their rooms as they get Snow White residuals from 1950.
Nearly a month ago, I posted some real life renderings of Disney Princesses. They were beautiful representations of some of the most memorable heroines in Disney movies. A friend came to me afterwards asking for where Cinderella and Snow White and Tiana were. I was surely puzzled because the artist had bothered to draw obscure Princesses like Meg and even Ursula. So I did a little digging and found out that I haven’t shared the entire set yet. So here’s the rest of them. I realized I didn’t give credit to an artist, so let me fix that mistake here: http://jirkavinse.wordpress.com/ The rest are down below.
Normally this would fit into a single image of 24 for the Weekend Funnies. But seeing as it’s semi-movie related, I’ve decided to give it’s own slot to appreciate the hilarious portmanteau [definition here] created here. It’s reminiscent of other portmanteaus I’ve seen in popular culture, which I’m augmented this post with.
Dorkly created this awesome trailer recut with Game of Thrones and popular Disney characters. It’s very well done and sends shivers up my spine none the less.
There’s a very strong debate swinging in my head. In anticipation for Game of Thrones season 2, I’ve already made the conviction to read the book A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. This was to gain insight to some of the ulterior moves of some characters and I’ve been told time and time again that the television show, while a great adaptation, holds no comparison to the book. Seeing as I’ve already seen the series on television, there will likely be little spoilers as I read the book.
Now here comes the debate. As soon as I finish the first book, Game of Thrones season 2 is heavily based on the George R.R. Martin’s second book, A Clash of Kings. The debate is whether or not I should read the book before/during season 2 and spoil the television series. Hit the jump for some back story to help you get some perspective on the situation. Incredibly spoilertastic to those who haven’t watched the series, but no spoilers for those who kept up with the book series. Before you comment, please no spoilers for the upcoming Season 2 or the book A Clash of Kings. I will end you if you dare spoil me.
It’s not a surprise to anyone that Disney Princesses are the pinnacle of perfection in terms of looks. But at the same time, they’re cartoons. So an artist decided to render them in real life using models that closely resembled their backgrounds. Thanks to Yahoo! for showing this. Credit to http://jirkavinse.wordpress.com/ for creating them.
It’s difficult how to process this. This could easily be another fantastic Pixar hit. Or it could possibly be leaning on the lines of How to Train Your Dragon that was made by Dreamworks Animation a couple of years ago. It was almost too eerily similar. Just trade in scrawny figure for girl and it almost looks and sounds like the same movie. But Pixar usually doesn’t let us down and at least I can say the visuals look great.
My first post ever to this site was the ranking of Pixar throughout the years. The first Cars was in last place, with the main points suggesting a lack in innovation or imagination, despite having top notch animation. So when I watched Cars 2, the first sequel to a Pixar movie after the beloved Toy Story franchise, I was ultimately disappointed for the same general reasons. And even though I used the word disappointment, I can’t say in itself that Cars 2 was a bad movie, because in all reality it wasn’t bad for an animated movie. In all honesty, it quite frankly beats most other animated movies in terms of story and animation itself. For a Pixar movie however, it lacks the magic and storytelling that usually transcends me to a new world where I never want to let go.
