Art of the Title: A Brief History of Title Design

This is a fun little video for those who like title design (and who doesn’t?). It’s a presentation video for the SXSW “Excellence in Title Design” competition screening which features brief moments from over 70 movies and tv show’s opening credits (or title design if you will). It is a bit interesting that some titles are not even featured in the video, but the person who created this is obviously way more creative then I am, so I’ll assume I am an idiot that doesn’t get it (much like I do with Harry Potter). A full list of movies and shows can be found just below the video.  Props to artofthetitle.com for a great job. Enjoy!

The Simpsons Amazing Movie References

We could easily dedicate an entire year on this blog to all the amazing jokes and references The Simpsons have made through their incredible 20+ year run and we would barely scratch the surface. That would mostly be because I am very lazy and would likely only write about 6 posts in that entire year. With that, I thought it would be fun to go over some of the amazing (near shot-for-shot) movie references The Simpsons have made. So why don’t we do that? Enjoy.   The Birds   Close Encounters of the Third Kind   All The President’s Men   Gold Rush   Batman (1989)   It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World   Public Enemy   Sorcerer   Cape Fear

Compare the First and Final Shots of 55 Powerful Films

This gorgeous supercut features the First and Final shots used in some of the most powerful and iconic movies of the last 40 years. It features the haunting music from American Beauty (yet doesn’t feature a shot from the film itself) and although it’s tough to argue with the choices made for this supercut, I think we can all agree one film painfully excluded from the list is Herbie Goes Bananas. Oh well, try to enjoy it anyway.
