ESPN The Magazine is getting its geek on. Recently, they showed several NBA stars as famous comic book characters and their latest issue, the Movie Spectacular dated November 29, continues the trend. It’s filled with articles about about lesser known movie stars such as Chelcie Ross (who was in Hoosiers, Rudy and Major League), an insider tale of trying to pitch a book in Hollywood and even an essay on how nerds have taken over sports movies. The highlight, though, is awesome gallery of real sports stars spoofing some of their favorite movies. The Hangover, Caddyshack, Back to the Future, Pulp Fiction, Anchorman and Basic Instinct are all here – starring some of the biggest names in sports like Danica Patrick, Chad Ochocinco and Lindsey Vonn just to name a few. Check out a full gallery after the jump. Read More »

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!
If you’ve seen more than one movie by Quentin Tarantino, then you’ve surely noticed his signature POV trunk shot. The shot even has its own wikipedia page (take that Scorsese Squeeze!). Here is the background from wiki:
The Trunk shot is a camera angle used in cinema when one or more characters need to retrieve something or someone from the trunk of a car. … This camera angle is often noted to be the trademark of film maker Quentin Tarantino who disputes that he puts the shot in his films as a trademark and simply asks “Where would you put the camera?” Although he did not invent it, Tarantino popularized the trunk shot, which is featured in Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, and Kill Bill. In Death Proof, Tarantino’s traditional shot looking up at the actors from the trunk of a car is replaced by one looking up from under the hood. In Inglourious Basterds a “trunk shot” is used two times when Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) crouches over a captured Nazi with one of his soldiers, cutting a swastika into their victim’s forehead (the shot is supposed to be the victim’s point of view).
After the jump you can see an image that collects all of Tarantino’s Trunk Shots. It first appeared on Reddit but has been making its way around the interwebs yesterday.
