    Let’s Put a Smile on That Face: Someone Mashed Up the Nolan and Burton Batman Films

    Are they taking nominations for the MacArthur Fellows Program? We only ask because the person who made this series of mashup photos combining the Christopher Nolan and Tim Burton Batman films is a genius of the highest order. user Butcher Billy is the one behind this particular set of wonders, and we'd need Joker gas to smile more than we have at their work.

    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Author Scripting Tim Burton Film Dark Shadows

    Seth Grahame-Smith, author of both Pride and Prejudice and Zombie and the more recent but equally ridiculous Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, is about to get one more reason to be beloved by the eccentric geek community: He has been chosen to write the script for the next big Tim Burton-Johnny Depp collaboration, Dark Shadows. The film is to be based off the gothic soap opera series of the same name that ran on ABC in the last 60s and early 70s. Perhaps as cool as the fact that such an out-there writer earned this opportunity is the way in which he earned it.

    Why Remaking The Wizard of Oz Is a Really Bad Idea

    Fresh on the heels of Alice in Wonderland's box office success, rumors are flying about not one, but two feature film remakes of The Wizard of Oz.  Now, there's more than one way to retell a story, and there are a few ways to redo Wizard that would probably work.  The odds of Hollywood actually finding those particular ways is unlikely.

    I'd like to take some time and explain when a remake generally isn't a good idea, and when it generally is, and whether or not this means that The Wizard of Oz is something we should revisit.

    Disney Launching New Clothing Line Aimed At…Goths?

    Disney has a long history of taking its princess characters and turning them into merchandising juggernauts the likes of which the world has never seen (since Star Wars, that is.) Their mission continues, with a movie you may not have thought of, and to a sub-culture that you wouldn't think would be very receptive to overtures from "The Happpiest Place on Earth." But, according to The Wall Street Journal, Disney has licensed a line of clothing, accessories, and fragrances based on Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland to Hot Topic, aimed at "young women and teenage girls, particularly those who gravitate to darkly romantic entertainment like the "Twilight" series." Translation: goths.
