Saw this earlier this morning, and thought it was funny enough to share with everyone.  Someone made a video comparing Star Trek to Star Wars.




  Star Trek cast on SNL

Not sure if you should see SNL?  Want Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine, and Leonard Nimoy to reassure you that it’s a good movie?  They stopped over at SNL last night, to do just that.




  V For Vendetta Visualized
Posted by: Mike on Jan 31st, 2009 Leave a Comment »

Everyone knows that the “speech” from the beginning of V For Vendetta is awesome. If you don’t, you should stop reading this, because everyone hates you.

Christopher Silich is a pretty cool guy.  Who is he? Glad you asked.  He’s the guy responsible for creating this awesome typographic representation of the speech.  It’s pretty well done, and reminds me of the commercials that air at the end of NBC sitcoms.  Check it out below.




  V For Vendetta Day
Posted by: Mike on Nov 5th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

For those of us who aren’t British, it means nothing, unless you’re obsessed with V For Vendetta like some of us are.

For that, I implore you to watch V For Vendetta, preferrably on HD DVD, or Blu-ray, by midnight tonight.  And in case you’re wondering, here’s what he says in his introduction:

But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace soubriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona. Voila! In view humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the “vox populi” now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin, van guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
Verily this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it’s my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V.

49 words starting with V, if you count his name.

Remember, remember, the fifth of November.
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I know of no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever, be, forgot.




  Happy Easter, from the MovieSnobs Team

Sweeney Todd in PeepsFor the not-very-religious/non-Christians, Easter is a day for a nice dinner, time spent with family, and of course, all the candy you can shove in your face. One Easter favorite are those fluffy little marshmallow Peeps.

The Seattle Times ran a reader submission contest for scenes made out of Peeps. Among them, No Country for Old Peeps, the WGA strike staged in Peeps, and my personal favorite, Mrs. Lovett’s Peeps Pies (at left). There’s even a little Peep Sweeney Todd in the upstairs window.

You can see the gallery of all the submissions at The Seattle Times.

IMDb has a St Patrick’s Day logoUnfortunately, there aren’t many holiday movies for St. Patrick’s Day, unless of course you count Leprechaun (which I don’t).

IMDb thought it was appropriate to celebrate anyway by pulling a Google and changing up their logo. Check out the Irish pride on IMDb’s logo below.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the MovieSnobs staff! Enjoy your corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, and random green foods.




  Indiana Jones Lego Game

Indiana Jones Lego GameThe Star Wars Lego game is easily the best video game I’ve ever played. It’s easy enough for non-gamers to play, but has enough hidden levels and things to make it a worthwhile game for more advanced players.

I was thrilled to see that the same people are making a Batman game based on The Dark Knight, and now I’m even more thrilled to see that there’s one in the works for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Kotaku has screenshots of the game and the Lego site has a trailer for the game. Lego also has some pretty awesome Indiana Jones Lego playsets too.

Movie Themed AvatarsI meant to write about this a month ago when I found it, but it got lost in a sea of Google Bookmarks.

RopeofSilicon has a collection of movie-themed avatars for you to download and use. My personal favorite is the NPH one from the poster for Harold and Kumar 2.

They also have ones with Heath Ledger as The Joker, Cloverfield, Star Trek, Sex and the City, and a ton more. Go get yours at RopeofSilicon.com.
