Pixar versions of well-known characters (if done well) are always amusing. (The Kirk one is particularly amazing.)

Saul Bass is a total icon, and these Saul Bass-inspired Star Wars posters do him justice.

In TV news:

Here's a promo for Hannibal:

The Master's bug eye in this totally creeps me out, but the fact that it has Ten and Rose together (even though they don't fit with the timeline suggested by the Master?) makes up for it.

BBC will be releasing official Doctor Who jewelry to go along with the 50th Anniversary.

  1. i love those star wars posters and i totally want them for elijah's star wars themed bedroom.

    moffat is such a troll. sometimes i'm glad he isn't on twitter anymore. i feel like it's been better for my blood pressure.

    do you think the bug eye is supposed to be his skull flashing through? unpleasant either way.

    "WHY WOULD SOMEONE SET UP MANNEQUINS TO MOVE!!?? THAT'S FRAKING HORRIBLE!!"- thought every whovian ever.

  2. I'll be right there screaming with you if that FF6/7 thing true!! I really need to rewatch the whole series again, it's been far too long. :)



    It took me a bit, but I am completely on board with The Host now. I'm getting excited for it!


    Those Pixar Star Trek pictures are freaking cool!

  4. Wes (below) suggested a marathon. And I think that's pretty much the best idea ever. I'll be sure to pass along an invite. :)

    And yes, about The Host. I am hoping the director's influence (he also directed Gattaca, one of my favorite movies) outweighs SM's. ;)

  5. The fact that Elijah has a SW-themed room makes me smile.


    And that last comment? PERFECT.
