Fëanor pours the entire internet into the Recyclotron, and only the best links come out the other end for you to enjoy.
- The early reviews for Iron Man 2 are disappointingly mixed, and are even leaning towards poor. I am sad.
- Gorillaz and Alan Moore are collaborating on an opera about the 16th century alchemist John Dee. It's not often that I get to put that much awesome into one sentence. I'm going to sit back and enjoy it for a moment. Aaahhh...
- Ridley Scott says his Monopoly movie will be about greed - specifically, it will be "a comedy that will look at the 'bloodbath' and 'bad behavior' in the real estate market that led to the current economic crisis."
- A sequel to Clash of the Titans is in the offing, with Louis Leterrier moving from director to producer, Sam Worthington keeping his starring role, and an as yet unnamed person taking over writing duties.
- Jon Favreau talks about Cowboys and Aliens and makes it sound pretty fun.
- A Predators video clip focusing on Danny Trejo's character, Cuchillo.
- If you ever enjoyed any classic 8-bit Nintendo games, you must play Super Mario Crossover. This is a slick, brilliant game that allows you to play the original Super Mario Bros. as any of a rather large group of classic video game characters, including Link, Samus Aran, Simon Belmont, Mega Man, or the dude from Contra. It's amazing how well the designer has integrated these characters and their abilities into this new setting, and how much it changes the game. (Via)
- I have no choice but to enjoy this Threadless design entitled "There and Back Again," which envisions Tolkien's Middle Earth as a London Underground route map. I only wish I could get a larger version of the graphic so I could take a closer look at it. (Via)
- The new trailer for The Last Airbender is pretty cool. Lots of impressive effects and action, and you get a better look at Appa. I'm still worried about the writing and the actors, though. There isn't a lot of dialog in here, but none of it is all that impressive, or delivered all that well. Still, I remain optimistic.
- Man, now I'm even more excited for the noir episode of Fringe. Over at this link you'll find a fantastic, black and white, old school-style trailer for the episode, plus a more traditional preview.
- A city made entirely of staples.
- The Grand Ole Bestiary includes a lot of very well-dressed, respectable-looking animals.
- Super Punch describes Laurie Lipton's drawings as dense and grim, and I have to agree. They're also very impressive work.
- An amusing Doctor Who poster. (Via)
- Illustrator Jim Tierney has some great work on display in this post, including a four-part piece inspired by The Hobbit which I am almost obligated to love. (Via)
- Great comic book-inspired art from Mike Huddleston.
- Are you a Facebook user who's sick to death of FarmVille? Then you might enjoy Barnville, a game which allows you to take violent revenge on a whole host of farm animals. (Via)
- Columbia is running out of time to make Ghost Rider 2. They'll lose the rights to the character if they don't start production soon. Even if they do manage to do it, they may not be able to get Nicolas Cage back, as he's busy with other things. Woo hoo!
