Film Review: Captain America: Civil War

It’s time for Captain America, Iron Man, and the rest of the Avengers to get back in action with Captain America: Civil War, and this time they’re fighting among themselves. Of course, the Avengers alone couldn’t carry more than a scenery-destroying barroom brawl, so they’ve brought some friends along for the fight. Let’s dive into the brawl for this review. Last one in’s a rotten egg.

Super “Heroes and Villains” by Josip Kelava

A quick glance at Josip Kelava’s Behance portfolio and it’s easy to see the passion that the Croatian-born graphic designer has for typography. He also loves characters from cartoons, comic books, and video games. In latest series of illustrations, Kelava uses his super Photoshop powers to create portraits for some of his favourite heroes and villains.

He includes elements from the universes in which these characters live, Link’s name for example seems to be spelled out with the triangular elements of the Triforce. Jungle hunter Yautja looks menacing in front of the Predator glyphs, while Superman has his birth name done in the Kryptonian alphabet. Have a look at Kelava’s Heroes and Villains after the jump.

This is Your Future

This is the future, according to the movies. In an effort similar to the infographic, YouTube user Eclectic Method stitches together scenes from your favourite sci-fi films to create a supercut of what our future might look like, from shining examples of human ingenuity to the dire effects of global warming, precognitive cops to rogue androids, to hoverboards and futuristic high-tops.

It’s a utopian dream, a dystopian nightmare, and everything in between. Have a look at The Future below.

Dazzling Eye Shadow Panoramas

You may remember Paige Thompson’s cute animal-ipsticks. Artist Katie Alves from Canada also paints her face but in a more dazzling fashion. Using her eyelids as the canvas, she paints a panorama that stretches from one eyelid to the other.

From glimpses of the Cheshire Cat to the road of yellow brick to carpets flying across the desert, Alves captures the essence of a variety of movies (mostly Disney). Have a look her eye shadow panoramas after the jump.

10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2012

Being an avid movie watcher, I use the term “movie” to includes both blockbusters and those busters that are somewhat less than blocky. I am constantly waiting on new reels of escapism. Unfortunately, with the film industry going gaga (not of the Lady variety) for 3D and apeshit for reboots and remakes, the offerings are few and far between.

Even though I’m a movie fan and not a film connoisseur, it’s very hard to look forward to anything that doesn’t fit into one of the aforementioned categories. So when prawn1 asked me to make a note of five—yes, Five!—movies that I have been looking forward to seeing this year, it was difficult to list to compile. Who does he think I am? Barry Ronge? However, I have done better than the five he originally asked, and I’ve found not seven, not nine, but a whole ten movies that I would (whether willingly or grudgingly) pay the ridiculous ticket fee to see. Find out what my fantastic choices are—in no particular order—after the jump.

Minimalist Movie Motors

Graphic designer Brandon Ortwein championed the cause of the humble van in his It Would Have Been Cooler As A Van series. Kevin Henry (Boomerjinks) over at DeviantArt is also putting vehicles in the spotlight with his set of posters.

Have a look at some of the images from Henry’s Movie Car Racing Posters series after the jump.

Filmography 2011: The Year in Movies

There are only 15 days to go until the end of this year. If I could remember anything, I would say 2011 was a year like no other. There was good, there was bad, and everything else in between. In his retrospective montage, Filmography 2011, YouTube user genrocks celebrates the year in movies.

This mashup is composed of clips from 230 films that were produced or released this year. For more info on the film and music selection, visit the Filmography 2011 tumblelog.

Movie Line Rhymes

Jordan Laws and the people over at Screen Werks stitched together clips from 48 popular movies to create a wonderful musical mashup. The likes of Darth Vader, Napoleon Dynamite, James Bond, and Audrey II all get together to drop some mad rhymes.

As good as it is, the drum beat is a little too loud and I mentioned on Google+ that it could have done with a line or two from Pulp Fiction. Jules is a natural poet:

My name’s Pitt. And your ass ain’t talkin’ your way out of this shit.

Or perhaps from Pulp Fiction and Snatch:

Brick Top: In the quiet words of the Virgin Mary… come again?
The Wolf: That’s thirty minutes away. I’ll be there in ten.
