Dave Perillo is an artist we’ve featured on /Film for years. In fact, if the site goes down, it’s his art that comes up letting you know of the 404 status. He has an incredibly unique, geometric, retro-cartoonish style that lends itself very well to family-friendly fare. Breaking Bad, however, is decidedly not family-friendly. The juxtaposition of Perillo’s style and a subject like disposing of a dead body makes for a beautiful addition to the Breaking Bad Art Project. Check it out in full below. Read More »

This Friday, Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles will hold the fifth Crazy 4 Cult art show, an annual exhibition which I’ve called the super bowl of pop culture art. I am so jealous of all my fellow Los Angelans who are able to attend this week. I’ll be away in Texas, but I can’t complain as I’ll be bringing back my girlfriend with me (the big move, exciting). The great guys at G1988 have given me a bunch of art from the show to premiere on the site.
After the jump you will find part one of our preview, which includes a new Back to the Future-inspired piece by the great Eric Tan, Monster Squad and Better Off Dead pieces by /Film favorite Dave Perillo, an incredibly multi-level Scott Pilgrim vs. The World piece by Jim Horwat, Alex Pardee‘s tribute to a new cult classic, Rubber, and more. So what are you waiting for?

Quentin Tarantino and the Coen Brothers are, without a doubt, three of the most revered filmmakers working today. The release of a new film by Tarantino or the Coens insights a Pavlovian response in most film fans as each writer/director has such an incredibly high success rate, we’re almost guaranteed to see, at the very least, a good movie, if not a great one. Pulp Fiction, Fargo, Reservoir Dogs, The Big Lebowski, Inglourious Basterds, No Country for Old Men, the list goes on and on.
Spoke Art, the team behind the recent Wes Anderson-themed Bad Dads exhibit in San Francisco is traveling across country to New York for their next big film-themed art show based on that fact. Quentin vs. Coens will be open from April 7-April 9 at the Bold Hype Gallery in Manhattan and includes work from over 100 artists who have interpreted their favorite films and characters from the films of Quentin Tarantino or Joel and Ethan Coen.
Keep an eye on the site as we’ll soon have more exclusive images from show but, for now, check out the first set of images – including art from Tim Doyle (exclusive to /Film), Brandon Schaefer, Joshua Budich, Dave Perillo, Lloyd Stas and many others – plus all the pertinent info after the jump.

What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film. After the jump we’ve included 21 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness.

One of my favorite pop culture artists in a cartoonist named Dave Perillo. You’ve seen his work featured in many past editions of Cool Stuff and all those Crazy4Cult art show pieces. I just love his retro style, and have at least ten of his prints hanging on the walls of /Film HQ (well, actually, I havent hung most of them, but when I start hanging my framed prints, this will be literally true). His latest creation is titled “Expendable”, but isn’t actually for the movie Expendables but instead old school Star Trek and the always expendable Red Shirt Starfleet Officer. See the whole piece of art after the jump.
Teefury is selling the design on a t-shirt today for only $9 plus shipping. The tee will only be on sale today only so get it while you can.

If you’ve been reading /Film for a while, then you know that I love good movie-inspired art. And the superbowl of movie art is Crazy4Cult, an art show put on every year by Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. This year’s show will open on July 9th, and we have seen the first batch of artwork premiere online. For years I’ve been writing about the show, and posting and buying the art online. I’m super excited because this year I’ll be able to attend the event since I now live in Los Angeles. After the jump you will see a compilation of the artwork I have found thus far. New pieces from Eric Tan, Dave Perillo, Tom Whalen and more. We should have another preview closer to the show. Believe me, if you like movie art, hit the jump!
