The Life Aquatic Trailer In The Style Of Kubricks' The Shining

Video: It’s hard to turn an optimistic movie as full of light and absurd humour as Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou into a dark horror movie that tells the story of a man turned mad-man in the style of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining – but our video magician Iván Róbert did it.

Soundtrack Of A LucasArts Childhood: Sam & Max Hit The Road

GOG (formerly known as Good Old Games) have signed a deal with LucasArts to re-release some of our favourite video games of the 1990s. Sam & Max Hit the Road is on the short list with others of that genre and period presumable slated for future release — like Day of the Tentacle and Full Throttle.
