    Cosplaying is the best. So why can't fictional characters join in the fun, too? Read on for characters and their preferred cosplays. 

  • Weirdest Shakespeare Adaptions Ever Made

    Around the world, Shakespearean theaters are celebrating the birth date (and possibly death date) of the most famous playwright in history. Whether you love the Bard’s works, like we do, or don’t get what all the fuss is about, it’s hard to deny how influential Billy Shakes has been on pretty much every author to come after him. Beloved movies like 10 Things I Hate About You, She’s the Man, the Lion King, and West Side Story wouldn’t have existed without Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, Hamlet, and Romeo and Juliet, respectively.

    But you know about those movies, right? We’re gonna get a little obscure, a little weird, and a little silly with these six bizarre adaptations of Shakespeare’s work.

  • Harry Potter: How Would Hogwarts Celebrate St. Paddy’s Day?

    This year’s Oscar nominations included films containing incredibly diverse and fascinating cinematic experiences: an international adoption from Calcutta to Tasmania, a heightened musical representation of artistic LA and working class African-American 1950s Pittsburgh.

    The Oscars are intended to recognise extraordinary accomplishments and storytelling, dream worlds and universal truths within movies. We have some of our own suggestions for Oscars (or would they be called the Quirkeys?). We’re providing nominations and winners in our own play on words production. Could we have the envelopes, please?

  • Literary Characters & The Oscars (By the Numbers)

    Since the first Academy Awards in 1928, thirty-three Best Picture winners were based on novels.

    All told, that accounts for almost half of all Academy Award winning films! That’s quite a track record attesting to the critical success of “book to screen.” But do literary characters fare equally well?
