Now that it’s December, there’s no better time to get Gremlins out for a little holiday viewing. It’s not usually a big part of the array of holiday movies that hit TV like A Christmas Story, Elf, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and so on, but it’s an outstanding Christmas movie for those who don’t need all the faux holiday cheer and would rather see little monsters wreak havoc on a small town.
In honor of Gremlins, the folks over at Mondo have released a couple new collectible prints from Matt Ryan Tobin and Glen Brogan. The two prints pay tribute to both Gremlins and the wacky, unabashed sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch, and they’re both outstanding. Plus, there’s a batch of Gremlins enamel pins you can add to your collection.

This was one of those lucky years when we were treated to the beauty of a stop-motion animated movie from those geniuses over at LAIKA. Kubo and the Two Strings didn’t arrive with much pomp and circumstance, but it was quite the satisfying theatrical experience for those of us who went out of our way to see it a couple months ago. For those of you who did catch it and fell in love with it, you might want to stay tuned to Mondo today to get your hands on some stunning new artwork.
Kubo and the Two Strings arrives on home video today, and Mondo is celebrating with a gorgeous new print by artist César Moreno. However, if you happen to be more of a fan of LAIKA’s first movie Coraline, then there are two new prints that might tickle your fancy even more. Check out the Mondo Laika prints after the jump.

For any sci-fi fan, it would be a dream come true to find a place where the characters from all your favorite sci-fi movies and TV shows existed in the same world. But unless we figure out how to travel to a parallel dimension where all those character that have been imagined over the years are real, we’ll have to settle for this new print from the Hero Complex Gallery show Sci-Scapes.
Artists Josan Gonzalez and Laurie Greasley created this insanely detailed piece of work that feels like a sci-fi version of Where’s Waldo. But rather than looking for the bespectacled, red and white striped sweater wearing explorer, you can just look at any part of this image and find someone or something from RoboCop, Total Recall, Akira, Alien, Stranger Things, Blade Runner, Predator and much more.

It’s no secret that merchandise is the bread and butter of the profits that come from owning the rights to the Star Wars saga. Anything and everything has been branded with the Star Wars logo, aliens, vehicles and all sorts of things from a galaxy far, far away. And just when we thought we’d seen it all, one company delivers something that has no good reason for existing.
The office supply company Quill is now selling Star Wars branded photocopy paper. What’s so special about this Star Wars paper? The answer might surprise you. Read More »
If you’ve seen Joe Dante‘s tongue-in-cheek Christmas horror flick Gremlins, then you know the three key rules about taking care of the little furry creatures known as Mogwai. Keep them out of bright lights, especially the sun. Never get them wet. And don’t ever feed them after midnight. However, when it comes to the new Mondo Gremlins vinyl soundtrack, you can break two of those rules without any repercussions.
