Man Recreates Romantic Movie Scenes With A Dog, And It’s Not Quite As Creepy As It Sounds

It all started as a joke, as so many brilliant performance art projects do. Chris Naka thought it might be funny to recreate a romantic movie scene with his boss’ dog, Wrigley, and snap a photo to entertain his coworkers.

“The Fault In Our Stars” Movie Poster Is Out And It’s Perfect And Everyone Is Crying

Buzzfeed got ahold of the beautiful movie poster for the upcoming film adaptation of The Fault In Our Stars, and if you’ve read the book, it’s basically impossible to look at it for more than two seconds without sobbing uncontrollably (in a good way, kind of). Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort are beyond perfect a…

10 Assorted Observations From An Elderly Man Watching “Home Alone” For The First Time

This weekend I achieved a lifelong dream of seeing a special holiday screening of “Home Alone” on the big screen at a local movie theater. I’m sure I saw it at the theater when it first came out, but I can’t remember (I was 5 at the time), so I jumped at the chance to…

This Couple Re-Enacting “Dirty Dancing” Will Restore Your Faith In Love And Maybe Humanity In General

I am normally not much of a shmoopy wedding video type, but this couple’s reenactment of a famous scene from “Dirty Dancing” at their wedding has me freaking out. Slayed, I tell you. Near tears!

New York City’s Katz’s Delicatessen was very famously featured in “When Harry Met Sally” as the lunch spot where Meg Ryan fakes a pretty epic orgasm. One woman reenacting that scene at Harry and Sally’s table might elicit a chuckle or two, but when a flashmob of 20 women all start oohing, ahhing, and “yes, yes, YES“-ing…

“Spring Breakers” was a movie about four hot chicks in bikinis who become sexy bank robbers. “Fall Breakers,” according to this hilarious parody trailer, is a movie about four hot chicks in plaid flannel shirts and cardigans who are really into pumpkin spice lattes and writhing around in crunchy leaves.

5 Photos That Will Shatter Your Image Of Horror Movie Locations

On some level, we know that “Saw” is happening on a dilapidated soundstage instead of in a dilapidated bathroom, but we pretend not to so that it stays a scary movie instead of devolving into a meditation on how unkind the years have been to Cary Elwes. But sometimes seeing where these horror movies were…

Watch This: Coffee Shop “Carrie” Is The Scariest Prank I’ve Ever Seen
