Movie posters often feature a small quote from a critic two (usually something along the lines of “brilliant!” or “film of the year!”), to entice you to see the flick. But these movie posters by @AwfulReviews are on the opposite end of the spectrum: each poster features quotes from the movie’s 1-star Amazon reviews. And, wow, they’re pretty brutal—but also entertaining.

Check out some more examples after the break…

The whole Hail Hydra meme has been around for awhile, but thanks to Captain America: The Winter Soldier it’s getting a whole new life. If you haven’t seen the movie, not only will this not be quite as funny, but what is wrong with you? Go see it and then come right back over here and check out all these images because once you get it, they’re ridiculously funny. Hail Hydra!

It’s been ten years since Shaun of the Dead first hit theaters in the UK and to celebrate, filmmaker Edgar Wright has posted the film’s script along with those for Hot Fuzz and At World’s End on his official website for download. He calls them the “Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy” after the Cornetto ice cream cone that makes an appearance in each film. The scripts include storyboards, graphics, and movie stills so they’re just the thing to make fans happy.

Simon Pegg also tweeted about celebrating the anniversary, and how ten years ago he and Wright snuck into the theater to watch the film when it was first released. He was quick to point out that they did actually pay for the tickets in the end, so, you know, don’t be breaking the law on his account.

Nathan Fillion proved himself a giant tease when he hinted at a possible appearance in the upcoming Guardians of The Galaxy movie during a panel at St. Louis Comic Con. He was asked by a fan if he had wanted a role in the film and answered:

“Want to get a part? Or maybe did. I’m just saying maybe. Maybe it’ll be a surprise. Maybe check the credits of the movie when you watch it.”

Fillion has worked with director James Gunn before so teaming up again seems very possible. On the other hand, Marvel is very strict about keeping things secret and it doesn’t seem likely that Fillion would spill the beans on something that could have the Marvel folks seeing red.

Looks like we’ll have to wait until the film opens on August 1st. Pay very close attention to the credits at the end and keep your fingers crossed that Captain Malcolm Reynolds shows up.

See the video after the break and hear Fillion’s answer at the 38:22 mark…

Time travel adds all sorts of complexity to movies that can make it hard to keep track of what’s happening. So how well have you kept track of what happens in all the time travel movies? This graph by artist and animator Dan Meth is just one of 12 that he has made to test your knowledge. Some of them are fairly easy but others will take you some “time” to figure out.

The Internet has been nervously chewing its fingernails for years waiting to see what the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would look like in their upcoming movie. Turns out, the worry was unwarranted as the reception to the first trailer was pretty good overall—except for their noses. They were clearly going for some sort of human-ish vibe, but it looks a little odd.

Of course, the internet has fixed the problem. One fan transformed both Michaelangelo and Leonardo into a blend of their classic noses with the new look they’re sporting in the films. The results look really good, but, this is just the work of a fan. The noses we’re getting are the noses in the trailer.

The first Sharknado movie was an epic feat of bad movie awesomeness. Now it’s making a second film and has included the tagline “Shark Happens!” on the official poster along with a bunch of sharks in a tornado that has ripped the Statue of Liberty from her pedestal. They have upped the ante of bad movie awesomeness to a heretofore untold level that no one could have foreseen.

Movie posters are a fantastic way to remember your favorite films, and when they’re done well, they bring you right back to the moment when you were sitting in the theater.

DeviantArtist Kasami-Sensei has toughened up some of your favorite Disney characters like Ariel, Mulan and Elsa and plopped them down right in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Even Buzz, Woody and Jesse are ready to take on the brain-eating hordes, but I think Mulan with her wicked looking sword is most likely to come out alive.

In the hit movie Frozen, there was a nod to Tangled with Rapunzel and Flynn showing up for Elsa’s coronation ceremony. There’s already a well-known theory that every Pixar movie takes place in the same universe, but now that Easter egg has fans wondering if Frozen, Tangled and The Little Mermaid are all part of one world as well. According to one fan on tumblr:

This also means that the sunken ship Ariel visits could be the one that carried Anna and Elsa’s parents to their deaths. Now, let’s see someone work The Lion King and Pocahontas in there and then we’ll be impressed.
