Movies R Fun: For Mature Kids Only

Josh Cooley – a storyboard artist at Pixar – has put together a not-so-innocent children’s book of famous scenes from R rated movies. The little ones may not pick up on all of the famous film references, but their parents will definitely appreciate them. Check out a couple of my favorites picked out from the Buzzfeed article here:

Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day everyone! I also found out that today also doubles as the day Gandalf returned from the dead as Gandalf the White. So Happy Gandalf Day too!

Whether you’re cherishing your long-time partner, boyfriend, girlfriend, mate, lover, crush or Netflix, I hope you are spreading lots of love and letting these special beings know that you love them.

Love,

TheFilmKid

MOVIEBARCODE whose blog can be seen here compresses films into intriguing barcode-like color schemes.

Some of my personal favorites include:

The Wizard of Oz

Xmen

The Shining

Star Trek: Into Darkness

Would make very cool artwork in a cinephile’s home, no?

A 20 Minute Writing Adventure

With twenty minutes to write, and the prompt: Everybody is ahead of everybody else, click here to see what I wrote.
