Wes Anderson Italian Cafe

Director Wes Anderson has one of the most distinct storytelling and visual styles of any filmmaker working today. Fans have even taken to using his style to imagine other movies as if they were directed by Anderson, such as Forrest Gump and The Uncanny X-Men. Of course, no one parodied Wes Anderson better than Saturday Night Live with their horror spoof, The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders. And now if you’re a Wes Anderson fan, you can step into the world he beautifully brings to life on the big screen…sort of.

No, there’s not a Wes Anderson theme park (though plenty would line up for that attraction), but the filmmaker has designed a cafe in Italy that feels like it’s straight out of one of his movies. Thankfully, if you’re not in Europe, we have some photos that you can check out. See what this Wes Anderson Italian cafe looks like after the jump. Read More »

James Gunn Guardians of the Galaxy

As the holiday season continues, one property that’s sure to be at the top of many lists is Guardians of the Galaxy. The Marvel Studios movie remains the highest grossing domestic film of the year, spawning a whole new legion of fans for the previously obscure characters. Some may get the Blu-ray, others a poster or action figure, but when you’re the director of the film, your level of gift gets significantly better.

In the last few days, co-writer and director James Gunn has gotten some absolutely amazing Guardians of the Galaxy gifts. A few are from Marvel, others from friends, but it’s proof that several years of non-stop, incredibly hard work does beget some really cool gifts. Check out James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy gifts below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Lego Goonies diorama 1

The Internet has taught us lots of things. Cats play keyboards, Charlie bit me and fans want Goonies Lego sets. It feels like month after months, you see images of fan made Lego creations based on the 1985 Richard Donner film. One even got 10,000 votes on the Lego Ideas website and could, potentially get made.

While we wait for that to – maybe – happen, you can check out a stunning, detailed, huge Goonies Lego diorama that was at Brickcon 2014. It includes the Walsh house, jail house, Fratelli’s restaurant, and several of the underground passages such as the piano room and more. Check it out below, along with a few new Lego Ideas projects.

Bill Hader Skeleton Twins

A spin around the TV dial is almost guaranteed to turn up at least one appearance by Bill Hader. Whether it be his memorable stint on Saturday Night Live, smaller film roles in Judd Apatow comedies, leading roles in Greg Mottola comedies, adding voices to Edgar Wright movies, writing South Park episodes, or a commercial for his wonderful new drama The Skeleton Twins, Hader seems to be everywhere. And that’s a good thing. The guy is talented and funny, and a huge film fan.

In the book “Poking a Dead Frog: Conversations With Today’s Top Comedy Writers” by Mike Sacks, Hader contributed his own list of “200 Essential Movies Every Comedy Writer Should See.” It pretty safe to say, though, you don’t have to be a comedy writer to appreciate these gems. Some are obvious, some not, but it’s a fun list even just as a jumping off point for a debate.

Below, check out the list of Hader’s 200 Essential Comedies and even watch him talk about it. Read More »
