Short of putting a Blu-ray on your shelf or a poster on your wall, quoting a movie in conversation is one of the best ways to pay tribute to movies you love. We’ve all dropped a quote from a movie into casual conversation and then gotten a nod of recognition from someone who is in on the joke. What’s cool about these posters by designer Jerod Gibson is that it takes those quotes and puts them on a pedestal, making the words the stars of iconic films like the original Star Wars Trilogy, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and Ghostbusters.

Yes, watching Zohan is like sucking on a blow dryer with a mouthful of expired tuna, but don’t brush off Scary Madison just yet. That’s the name of Adam Sandler‘s new horror label, an off-branch of his production company, Happy Madison, and the first SM film is a thriller entitled Shortcut. The reason why I’d hold out the trash talk for the time being? Shortcut will be directed by Nicholaus Goosen, whose previous film was Grandma’s Boy; a pretty effing assured, laid back and original comedy if you actually saw it. Here’s the plot synopsis: “two brothers come upon a rarely used shortcut in their new town and soon discover the reasons why it’s so rarely used.” Sounds like Pet Sematary with a scary Penguin.
Stars include relative newbies like Adam Seeley, Shannon Woodward and Dave Franco (cameo in Superbad, Greek). Maybe it’s blind faith on my part, but I’m looking forward to what Goosen has in store. Filming commences next month.
