Inspired by the classic cartoon, not the latest movie

This just past NYC Toy Fair, Kidrobot let the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles climb back up out of the sewers and onto display shelves. Like the toxic ooze that made these turtles into the sword wielding assassins that they are, so comes a glow-in-the-dark series of Ooze Action toys. But these are modeled after the famed […]

Another Scorsese tale of criminal rags to riches ascension

The trailer for Martin Scorcese’s latest opus was just released, and it seems to hit all the touchpoints of a typical epic Scorsesian plotline. A rags to riches thug-life story shot not through the lens of organized crime but rather Wall Street (wait, is that the same thing actually?), The Wolf Of Wall Street tells […]


Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained is, in a single word, brutal. Unflinchingly, gorily, misanthropically, even gleefully brutal, to a point that a couple scenes were so ruthless they will churn your guts. Now I survived Irreversible, so that’s saying a lot. This observation is neither a complaint nor praise, but rather a (obvious?) comment on a […]

Taschen reprints their best-selling book of all time — about arguably the greatest mind of all time

The Pursuit of Vengeance lifted to an immaculate art form...

Is there anybody — and I mean anybody — on this God’s green Earth that better manifests a Pursuit of Vengeance flick better than the great Quentin Tarantino? Unleashing a slave seeking revenge, and freedom, on a bunch of plantation owners seems like such a Tarantino no-brainer that in hindsight it’s shocking he hasn’t done […]

Entire film layered in 4 minutes

In tribute to Inception re-emerging as one of the interweb’s overwhelming Memes of the Year (have you heard — it’s out on DVD!), a fellow named Weikang assembled the various levels of inceptions into one “real time” video, thereby distilling the entire film into the 4 minutes of which it actually took place.
