The 9 Best Movie Bears

Bears have a long and proud cinematic tradition, going back to at least 1925 when Charlie Chaplin wrestled with a bear in The Gold Rush. More than any other animal, bears are ripe for humor. They’re charming, stuffed panaceas for young children when in toy form, but large and menacing beasts in their natural state. I’m human with human emotions and even I’m not that versatile. Here are the nine best movie bears. Continue reading

Poop as Justice in Movies

Last week, I touched on whether or not feces is actually funny in movies. While studying poop humor, several themes began to emerge in the way that poop is used as a cinematic device.

Movie Foods I’d Like to See Andrew Zimmern Eat on Bizarre Foods

I really enjoy Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern on the Travel Channel. First and foremost, Zimmern is an extremely likable guy. He has a lot of passion for experiencing new cultures via the way people eat, which is a really cool way to break down barriers in language and customs. He’s ruthlessly honest in his descriptions of what he’s eating, what kind of texture it has, and what kind of flavor it has. His reactions are genuine. And I find the food that he eats on that show fascinating. Where else on TV are you going to see someone sampling snake bile, volcano rabbit head, or camel kidney? Last but not least, I have a soft spot for Zimmern because he reminds me of my own well-traveled brother, who is also bald and enjoys introducing people to new cultures via their food. His four year old son even loves the show because Zimmern reminds him of his father/my brother. But I’m not a food critic. I write about movies and TV. Keeping that in mind, here are several dishes eaten in movies that I’d like to see Zimmern try. Continue reading

Nike recently released a series of t-shirt designs that pay homage to classic Major League Baseball hair styles. Every great player in the last 30 years who featured a goatee, an afro, a fu manchu, a beard, or a simple mustache is featured on these shirts. Upon seeing Nike’s creations, my thoughts naturally shifted towards what a similar design style would look like with movie characters. Here are some minimalist designs of famous film faces and hairstyles:
