Supercut: Intense Eyes Looking At The Camera In Famous Movie Scenes

Video: A person’s eyes can express so much. That’s why directors hone in on them in crucial scenes of movies. That’s why you can just see the eyes of a great actor and immediately know what movie you’re watching. That’s why this supercut about eyes is so fun to watch, it’s just famous scene after famous scene.


In The Boxtrolls, 3D Printing Makes Stop Motion Animation Look Magical

The Boxtrolls takes you into a beautiful bright Dickensian world where cheese means status and box-clad trolls are at the bottom of society. It’s the biggest stop motion production ever and it would have been impossible a few years ago.

Talking With America's Best Art Forger And The Man Who Tracked Him Down

Mark Landis is a small, soft-spoken, 59-year old man living in small-town Mississippi.

The Epic Slow Motion Shots Of Zack Snyder's Movies

When I first saw 300, it felt like I was using my eyes for the very first time. The stunning visuals made it feel epic.

If you somehow missed the Harry Potter boat and wanted to read all the books now, you’d have to flip through 4109 pages spread across 7 books. Or if you just want to catch up with the Harry Potter movies instead, you’d have to sit and stare for 19 hours and 38 minutes for all 8 movies. Or you could just read this comic.


Eyes On With The 270-Degree Future Of Cinema

A 270-degree, wraparound triple-screen theatre system has just begun rolling out to very select theatres nationwide — only five, in fact — with hopes of delivering an immersive movie-going experience that succeeds where 3D has so miserably failed. I got a sneak peek at the new technology recently and it’s, um, really something alright. I’m just not really sure what that is.


Scientists Used A Hitchcock Thriller To Measure Patients' Consciousness

Alfred Hitchcock, our master of suspense, was incredibly good at manipulating his audience — a fact that has now come in handy for neuroscientists. When they screened a Hitchcock thriller for volunteers in a brain scanner, they found that brain activity of a man who has been in a vegetative state for 16 years was astonishingly similar to that of healthy, conscious people.
