Robocop Comes Down From the Mountain

Published by under Images,Movies

robocop2

It’s fairly obvious to most that Robocop is a not-so-subtle Christ allegory, one of many scattered across the film universe, but what if it was really a Moses allegory instead? You don’t see those too often.

Exceptional artist Tim Doyle has crafted the above piece which show Robocop descending from the mountain to gift Terminators with his commandments. Which happen to be his laws of operation. Lord knows those Terminators could use more rules.

I’m pretty sure this was once a famous painting. And I’m pretty sure this is the version I want in my house.

Would You Like to Play a Game?

Published by under Images,Movies

game

Behold, the cruelest prank in the universe. One devious friend played a prank on another after borrowing a computer to do some repairs on it.  They may have fixed the problem, but they came back with an even larger issue.

“Do you want to play a game? One is Google CHrome…The Rest are Internet Explorer. The choice is yours.”

Man, that’s just mean. And don’t ruin the fun by saying you can just delete all of them and make a new Chrome shortcut. If you do that Jigsaw has rigged your computer to explode, so don’t even try it.

Xena and Gabrielle Get Disney Makeovers

Published by under Images,Television

xena1

 

Despite the “princess” identifier in her name, Xena has not a terribly large amount in common with princesses of the Disney variety. Until now, that is. The character has been given a Disney-style animated makeover by artist NIA, who has also done Gabrielle as well who you can see below.

NIA says she’d love to see an animated Xena series, but I think given the rate Hollywood is moving with reboots, we’re probably more likely to see a gritty PG-13 reboot of the character starring Milla Jovovitch or something. Or you know, Lucy Lawless, because she hasn’t aged and is still amazing (and about to start kicking ass on Agents of SHIELD).

Check out the other pictures below: Continue Reading »

Going Somewhere Solo?

Published by under Images,Movies

solo

A simply gorgeous piece by Kevin M. Wilson showing the famous showdown between Han and Greedo, right before Han shot him under the table. Actually. Judging by that table, there really wasn’t anything for the laser bolt to pass through, so I’m calling shenanigans on this piece.

Just kidding, it’s absolutely amazing, and I’m just sad it’s not available to buy as a print yet. This needs to be over my fireplace in like 4×4 frame.

Cosplay of the Day: Lady Sherlock

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Television

sherlock-cosplay

Sherlock appears to be yet another one of those characters like Link who is more effectively cosplayed by the opposite gender. I’m not sure what that says about Benedict Cumberbatch in this case, but it’s hard to say that cosplayer  Mi-caw-ber has done anything other than a bang-up job with her costume here.

You can see a few more shots of her in action below, including the full trenchcoat which is a must-have for any Sherlock ensemble. Scarves can only get you so far, after all.  Continue Reading »

Harry Potter as Told By Other Students

Though Harry Potter was the hero of his story, it was just that. HIS story. What about if the events of the books were seen through the eyes of the other, unnamed student at Hogwarts rather than just Harry and his friends? They’re just wizards trying to learn wizardry, damnit!

I believe these are from Tickld, though I could be mistaken. In any case, I had to put them all above the jump because they’re funnier when consumed that way. What’s that? I should probably go re-read Harry Potter for the eleventh time? Yeah, sounds about right. Oooh, I haven’t read the ebook edition yet!

Team Extreme Archeology

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Video Games

QAsDP5y

The most famous two archaeologists in pop culture (outside of Indiana Jones, who inspired them both) are most definitely Lara Croft and Nathan Drake, and though they never appear together in a game, they make for rather excellent couples cosplay.

I tried to dress up as Nathan Drake a few years back on Halloween, but I’ll admit this guy does a wayyy better job of it. Mostly due to that scarf. And handsomeness. Obviously lady Croft is flawless as well. There are more pictures to check out from their shoot below. I love that she bought an ice pick.  Continue Reading »

Cute Little Monster Disney Princesses

Published by under Images,Movies

No, Tim Burton is not working with Disney again to reboot all your beloved Princesses in ragdoll/zombie form (as cool as that may be). Rather, these are some pieces from artist NoFlutter who has given the Princesses a scary-ish makeover, while retaining maximum adorableness in the process.

There are individual shots of all the girls for you to check out below: Continue Reading »

Skuzzles’ Cult Horror Post Remakes

Published by under Images,Movies

Skuzzles-with-Dan-Mumford

Skuzzles has taken on a number of classic horror films, remaking their posters, but they haven’t done it just for fun. This is part of a larger commissioned project, it seems:

“Earlier in 2014, Skuzzles partnered with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) Studios and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment in developing artwork for 13 cult classic horror films. The DVDs and Blu-rays feature illustrated limited edition artwork created by a collective of incredible artists from all over the globe (Ghoulish Gary Pulin, Jason Edmiston, Todd Slater, Randy Ortiz, Josh Budich, Justin Osborne, Paul Shipper, Gregorz Domaradzki “Gabz”, Francesco Francavilla).”

That’s pretty awesome, and you should definitely check out the full colelction of covers below. The Last House on the Left is my favorite above (and my favorite film on the list), but they’re all worth checking out. Continue Reading »

An Amazing Collection of Terrifying, Realistic Pokemon

Published by under Images,Video Games

realistic_pokemon_03

This isn’t the first time we’ve featured RJ Palmer‘s realistic Pokemon art, but he’s been hard at work drafting more of these pieces, and now he’s got so many he’s actually releasing the collection as a book.

Palmer takes the standard cartoony Nintendo designs, and transforms the pocket monsters into ACTUAL MONSTERS, once again making me sad that Nintendo will never make a “badass” adult themed version of Pokemon where the creature battling is actually terrifying and epic.

You absolutely must check out the collection below: Continue Reading »

The Betrayal of Kong

Published by under Images,Movies

ape

You kind of have to have seen Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to get this joke, but given that the movie made like five hundred gazillion dollars worldwide on the back of stellar reviews, I’m guessing that’s probably likely.

In this case, rather that trying to figure out if it was a man or monkey who shot a gun, it’s Cesar investigating death-by-barrel of a certain famed plumber/jumping enthusiast. Artist is Glen Brogan. Good show, my friend.
