Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture:


Watch one of the antecedents of Chappie in Neill Blomkamp's 2006 short, Tempbot, below. There was also Tetra Vaal before that (see our post from last fall).

Perfect for your Valentine's Day movie date next year, or anytime, this dress's pattern is made up of candy hearts, each with a romantic line from a movie, such as "as you wish" from The Princess Bride , "I am the key master" from Ghostbusters and "I know" from The Empire Strikes Back. See a close-up of the pattern at Fashionably Geek


This weekend marks the 100th anniversary of the silent comedy Fatty's Chance Acquaintance, starring and directed by Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle. The copy below only has German title cards, but you don't need to understand them to appreciate the film.
