To coincide with his book release, Gallery 1988 is hosting Joey’s second solo art show which debuts tonight. Storytime 2 will see a return of Joey Spiotto’s demented children’s books. Hit the jump to get a preview of some of the 50-or-so pieces which will be on display at the exhibition.

There’s plenty of heroes out there, but what people really go crazy for is a great villain. Over nearly a century feature filmmaking has delivered some pretty mesmerizing, fascinating and memorable villains on the big screen. But which ones are truly the best?
Well, the folks at CineFix have attempted to answer this seemingly impossible question by counting down the Top 10 Movie Villains of All Time. And don’t worry, Christopher Nolan fans, because Heath Ledger‘s take on The Joker from The Dark Knight is on the list. However, you might not be so happy with some of the choices for best movie villains. Read More »
It sounds like the internet must have some kind of obsession with turning heroes to villains and vice versa. Hot on the heels of a video essay saying that Daniel LaRusso was actually the villain in The Karate Kid, and a fanmade trailer that turns Harry Potter into the villain of the fantasy franchise, a new fan theory for The Dark Knight has proposed that The Joker could be considered the hero truly responsible for saving Gotham City instead of Batman.
The new theory lays out some pretty compelling evidence for how the seemingly anarchistic plans of The Joker are actually all part of a plan to clean up the corruption of Gotham City, from the police department to its latest vigilante. Learn more about The Dark Knight Joker theory below! Read More »
Since we’re obsessed with all things cinema, we love stumbling across a good video essay that takes a closer look at a good movie. There’s no better way to examine a movie than in a medium that allows us to actually see clips from the movie being discussed as they’re being explained. But some movies have been examined so thoroughly that there doesn’t seem to be much else to discover.
One of those movies seemed to be The Dark Knight, which has been poked and prodded to death all over the internet. But the folks at Clickhole have just blown our minds by peeling away even more layers in Christopher Nolan‘s superhero sequel. The movie is still packed with hidden secrets and insane trivia you might have missed the first time through. The Clickhole Dark Knight video essay will change the way you watch the movie forever.

Everyone now and then, someone takes the time to round up a new list of 100 of the greatest films of all time, and it always stirs up some debate, even though probably 75% of the list is the same as any other. A new list from BBC Culture, however, is a little different, because the news organization from across the pond has rounded up a list of the 100 Greatest American Films, as voted on by an international assembly of film critics.
Some of your favorites like The Dark Knight, Star Wars, Back to the Future and Jaws made the cut, but there are only two films from the past five years, and only five total from the 21st century. The top films likely won’t surprise you, but there are still some questionable inclusions and exclusions on this list.
