Note: The answer to yesterday’s contest, Angie’s favorite movie, was Synecdoche, New York. The winners were Vanessa S from Arizona and Anant P from Vancouver.

All this week you have a chance to win one of 10 copies of Scott Campbell‘s latest book, The Great Showdowns. It’s a collection of Campbell’s distinctive, awesome art depicting some of the greatest conflicts in movie history. (As seen above.) We at /Film have been writing about Showdowns for years, most recently for Campbell’s second full gallery show. So, to commemorate and give away the new book, we teamed up with Campbell to do something very special.

Each day this week, we’ve been world premiering a brand new, never before seen showdown. Each showdown is based on the favorite movie of one of five /Film writers: Russ Fischer and, of course, Peter Sciretta. (We already did mine as well as David‘s and Angie‘s.) You’ll have one day to look at the showdown, read our explaination why it’s our favorite movie of all time, and then e-mail in your guess. Each day, out of those who get it right, two will randomly be selected and sent a free copy of The Great Showdowns by Scott Campbell.

Sound good? Check out Russ’s favorite movie of all time (well, one of them) below and find out how to enter. Read More »

If you’ve ever dreamt of seeing your favorite, obscure little movie made into art, odds are Scott Campbell has done it. For several years now, on an almost daily basis, Campbell creates a Great Showdown. The concept is simple. Pick a movie, pick two opposing forces in that movie, and paint it on a small, five inch high canvas. Here on /Film, we’ve been posting them for a while, so you’re likely familiar with Campbell’s style. If not, you can see it in the not-so-obscure Avengers Showdown above.

What began as a small part of larger shows continued to grow until, in 2011, Campbell was able to create a full Showdowns show at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. It was a sight to behold. Two walls filled with hundreds of clever, funny, exciting, surprising, insert-adjective-here Showdowns for what seemed to be every single movie imaginable. Since then, Campbell has continued to make Showdowns, has a book coming out, and is about to unveil his second Great Showdowns show, on display September 21 through October 13.

Almost 250 brand new Showdowns from 18 plus months will be at the show and, after the jump, you can check out my twenty favorites, find out how you can visit the show from anywhere in the world and more. Read More »

For years and years we’ve been featuring Scott C‘s artwork on the site. I’m a big fan of his watercolor paintings, and my girlfriend even commissioned Scott to do a painting for my last birthday (see it here – how awesome!?). Scott has been working on his Great Showdowns series for as long as I can remember, creating artwork showcasing some of cinema’s greatest (and sometimes lesser known, cult) rivalries. Scott’s Showdowns art has been showcased/sold at many different art shows across the country, and last year Gallery1988 finally held a solo “Great Showdowns” gallery show. This year, Titan Books and Gallery 1988 will publish a book of Scott’s work titled “The Great Showdowns”. I’m very happy to exclusively premiere the cover art. More information after the jump.

Cool Stuff: Crazy 4 Cult 5 Preview #3


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. The great guys at G1988 have given me a bunch of art from the show to premiere on the site. We posted part one here and part two here.

After the jump you will find part two of our preview, which includes JoeBot’s follow-up to the popular Fireflies record album — a record design for Dr. Horrible, Casey Weldon’s Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure poster, /Film favorite Scott C’s tribute to Easy Rider, and more. So what are you waiting for?

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 30 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness. If you have any interesting items that we might’ve missed that you think should go in /Film’s Page 2 – email us!
