5 Brilliant Jokes Almost Everyone Missed In Famous Movies Just because you can't see something, it doesn't mean it's not there. I thought everyone understood that (especially the dangerously overweight men out there). And yet I somehow keep hearing people moan about how movies don't try to appeal to the intelligent viewer, when that's clearly not the case. It's just that most of us aren't smart enough to notice when a film is trying to tickle our brain bone, which is how we missed these obscure movie jokes that have been staring us right in the face for years, like how ...

Aquarium Drunkard 6 Important Problems That Famous Movies Forgot To Solve If it was legally possible, every movie would end with Porky Pig popping out of the screen to say "That's all, folks," assuring that that the characters' problems are over. However, as we love to point out, that stuttering swine is a fucking liar -- plenty of famous movies have unresolved plot points that will inevitably come back to bite the protagonist in the ass, either because the writers forgot about them or because they thought no one would notice. Well, we did, so ... Christmas in New York City Christmas in the City Locals, tourists, and passer-bys stop to admire New York store's enchanting Christmas window decorations Christmas in NYC is the stuff dreams are made of. You don't have to head to the mountains in order to get that feeling of Christmas. New York City becomes a winter wonderland during the holidays: snow blankets the streets of Manhattan; crowds ”ooh” and “aah” at the exquisite Christmas window displays adorning the stores along Fifth Avenue; ice skaters glide across the Rockefeller Center Skating Rink as the Rockefeller Christmas tree glows beneath the New York skyline. Don't miss out on any chance to see Santa in NYC either!

Jonk Music 9 Terrifying Old Movies That Put Modern Horror To Shame Don't be fooled by stories about 19th-Century movie audiences losing their shit because they thought that footage of a moving train was going to run them over.

Carolines Et Musique Pour Tous 1946 New York Subway Photographed By 17-Year-Old Stanley Kubrick Before he went down in history as one of the greatest film directors of all time, 17-year-old Stanley Kubrick was known for something else – New York City subway photography. Over two weeks in 1946, Kubrick worked for LOOK magazine to capture the everyday lives and intimate moments of the people of a bygone era. While working for LOOK, Kubrick completed 129 assignments for a total of 15,000 photos. 24 Life Lessons for Filmmakers from Werner Herzog Werner Herzog has dedicated his life not only to creating uncompromising films, but uncompromising filmmakers as well. In a career that spans over half a century, the Munich-born director has made it his duty to help guide filmmakers as they navigate the wilderness of their creativity, from eating a shoe for a young Errol Morris to teaching students how to hack film at his Rogue Film School seminars. Still, there's so more to glean from him; just take a look at author Paul Cronin's book Werner Herzog: A Guide for the Perplexed, which features new interviews discussing Herzog’s films. Of course, the pages in-between the covers offer incredible insight into a perplexing cinematic mind, but the back cover contains a wealth of knowledge all on its own.

Levitation & Alien Forces: How to Create Big Practical FX with Little Everything Else Have you ever wanted to just make a "quick and easy" film? That was filmmaker Joey Ciccoline's intention for his first narrative short, a sci-fi film entitled 88:88, which has now gone on to win a handful of awards (including a Vimeo Staff Pick) and screened at festivals all around the world. But his idea for a "simple short film" turned into an exercise in creating stunning and clever practical effects without a small crew and an even smaller budget. Now Ciccoline wants to let you in on how he captured (almost) all of those effects in-camera. This is a guest post by Joey Ciccoline. In the summer of 2011 I had a conversation with my best friend, Sean Wilson.

9 Movies That Prove Animation Isn't Just For Kids This weekend Ari Folman's half-animated film The Congress opens in New York City, his first since his innovative 2008 film Waltz With Bashir. Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language, Waltz With Bashir is an animated documentary film that tells the story of Folman's wartime experiences in Lebanon. His newest, The Congress, is a sci-fi feature that has Robin Wright playing...Robin Wright. Things go awry when she retires from acting work, sells her screen image to a movie studio, and allows them full creative control of her visual aspect.
