Video Gallery: 9 Awesome Stop-Motion Animation Films You Probably Haven't Seen (But Should)

You’ve seen Nightmare Before Christmas. You’ve probably seen Corpse Bride and James and the Giant Peach. If you’re a Wes Anderson fan, you’ve most likely seen The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Neil Gaiman fan? You’ve seen Coraline. And of course you’ve seen Wallace and Gromit. They’re all terrific films, and they’re all enchanting examples of stop-motion animation. I’m a big fan of stop-motion; it’s a nice change of pace from all the CG animation that’s become the norm in the film industry these days. But you know what? There’s LOADS of stop-motion animation out there, and there’s a good chance you haven’t seen most of it. Oh, and a lot of it is available on Netflix, so it’s pretty easy to get a hold of. So why not do yourself a favor and introduce yourself to something new? You’ll thank yourself for it. I promise. More »

We’ll bring you images of the best of this year’s SDCC costumes as soon as they start surfacing, but until then, in honor of the event, we bring you 13 of the most creative cosplay costumes we’ve ever seen from previous years. They’re not necessarily the most detailed of costumes (though a few are); but they all demonstrate some excellent outside-the-proverbial-box thinking. Who would you dress up as?

10 Riffs on Fairy Tales That Are Cooler Than 'Red Riding Hood'

Retellings of fairy tales are all the rage these days, and there’s a good reason for that. Fairy tales hit something primal inside us, so they’re always relevant, and Disney aside, they’re always just a tiny bit scary. There have been loads of retellings of fairy tales around before Beastly and Red Riding Hood hit the scene, though. Here are some of our favorites. Get ready to take your once upon a time and send it to some really interesting places… More »

Style Crush: Mia Wasikowska

Style Crush: Mia Wasikowska

We finally sat down to watch The Kids Are All Right the other night — and wow, what a great movie! While Julianne Moore, Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo were sensational, we found ourselves most enchanted by the quiet but amazingly self-possessed Mia Wasikowska, who plays the daughter (of everyone ) in the film. Mia, who also starred in Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland, is just 21-years-old but well on her way to stardom, mark our words. We looked up more info on the Australian actress and quickly realized that in addition to amazing self-possession and enormous talent, Mia also has a killer sense of style. See what we mean in our gallery of Mia pics. More »

Video: 'Wishery' Latest In Trippy Disney Remixes

Yay, Pogo is back with his latest mashup of Disney songs, this time to the classic Snow White. “Wishery” fits in with the rest of the YouTube artist’s oeuvre like Upular (Up), Bangarang (Hook), and Alice (Alice in Wonderland): take clips of the famous kids’ tunes, add a house beat, and loop them over video of the film until they become a completely new movie, though one that’s as familiar as it is danceable. Um, it probably also helps if you’re high. More »
