Movie Playlist: Michael Cera’s Must See List

Which movies and television shows does Michael Cera recommend? The following comes from Intervals of Awesome:

My cousin, Harvey, randomly ran into Michael Cera at a London coffeeshoppe. Cera and Harvey hit it off and ended up having a 2 hour conversation over lunch. Cera wrote a list of stuff Harvey should see. I didn’t believe this story 100% until I got a hold of the list (which is v. good and everyone should see these films/shows) As Harvey’s most media-saavy relative, I’m helping him by lending/finding these movies/shows for him. This made his London trip.

Attending Gallery1988′s Crazy4Cult shows is sometimes disappointing. Some of the art you see previewed online isn’t made available in art prints, and the original art, while awesome, is too expensive for many to afford. I was hoping to pick up prints of Rich Pellegrino‘s pieces at this year’s Crazy 4 Cult show, but alas, none were available. Well, Gallery1988 must have heard the demand and is selling limited editions of the pictures, giclee print on archival paper, each hand signed and numbered by the artists. Each print is available in two sizes, 8.5 x 11 inches and 13 x 19 inches for $25 and $75. And the edition number is just 50 prints. Hit the jump to see the art for yourself. Click over to G1988 to purchase the prints now.

Cool Stuff: The Dude Abides T-Shirt

The t-shirt of the day at Ript Apparel is a tribute to The Coen BrothersThe Big Lebowski created by Tom Ledin. Check out the full design after the jump. I love the doodle pen sketch of the Dude. The bad news is that with all of RIPT’s tees, the design will only be available for today and today only (midnight eastern it disappears). The good news is that the shirt can be bought for only $10 plus shipping. So act fast.

Do you remember those Little Golden Books? They were a staple from my childhood. Pixar Animation Story Artist Josh Cooley (Cars, Ratatouille, Up, George & AJ) is working on an awesome “Lil’ Inappropriate Golden Book” titled Movies R Fun.

Cooley has been working on this compilation of movie art for two years and will be publishing the collection in a book which will be available at Comic-Con this year and APE Expo San Francisco in November. And don’t worry, the books and prints will also be available on Cooley’s Blog. High quality, “classy” prints will also be available as well.

Illustrations reference film classics such as The Professional, Terminator 2, Godfather, Goodfellas, Apocalypse Now, Se7en, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Graduate, Terminator, Silence of the Lambs, and The Big Lebowski. Check out some of the art embedded after the jump.

If you’re a regular reader of /Film, then you know that Gallery1988 in Los Angeles hosts some of the coolest pop culture-focused art shows in the universe. We’ve featured a lot of art from their Crazy4Cult shows in past editions of Cool Stuff.

Their latest show, The Greatest Moments in Sports History, is sports related. And while it contains some cool artwork from some of the artists we’ve grown to love and support, it isn’t necessarily /Film material. That said, a couple artists decided to pay tribute to The Coen Brothers’ comedy classic The Big Lebowski. I ran into Gallery1988 owner Jensen Karp at a cool event over the weekend (more details about that event will follow later this week) and he told me that they only have a dozen or so prints left of my favorite, Mike Mitchell‘s The Dude Invitational (seen cropped above). Prints are available of all the art included after the jump. But act fast before it disappears forever.

Dudeism

I admire Volkswagen for their support of independent film over the past decade. If you attend a regional or big time film festival, you’re likely to see them listed as a sponsor on the big screen before each film. In the past, we’ve featured some of their “See Film Differently” television spots which featured film fanatics sharing their vastly different interpretations of classic movies (if you haven’t seen those, check them out now).

VW has produced a new set of “See Film Differently” ads, directed by Seth Gordon, the filmmaker behind The King of Kong: A Fist Full of Quarters. These new spots showcase a group of people, each highly inspired by the movies, who testify about the power of film. You might have seen the one of Dudeism, which was virally circulating the interwebs last week. But after the jump we have all three.
