the_fifth_element_24x36_vlad_rodriguez

The Fifth Element (1997, Directed by Luc Besson), set in the 23rd century, is a Cyber-Punk film bursting with hilarity, technology, electrifying music and flying cars. It ridiculously screams sci-fi, so much that it can be mistaken for a spoof, of which it certainly is not. Besson, ever the eye for detail, creates the future in a fantastically zingy way that draws the audience in to its colourful world of fast paced mingleaninga.

 Those prints come in size of 24x36" (numbered Limited Edition of 25).

The Thing is a 1982 American science fiction horror film directed by John Carpenter, written by Bill Lancaster, and starring Kurt Russell. The film's title refers to its primary antagonist: a parasitic extraterrestrial lifeform that assimilates other organisms and in turn imitates them. The Thing infiltrates an Antarctic research station, taking the appearance of the researchers that it absorbs, and paranoia develops within the group. The Thing is based on the short story 'Who Goes There?' by American science fiction writer John W. Campbell, writing as Don A. Stuart (1910-1971). It was first published in the August 1938 issues of Astounding Science Fiction magazine.

'El Chavo del Ocho' Sketch-Art

El Chavo del Ocho (often shortened to El Chavo) is a Mexican television sitcom that gained enormous popularity in Hispanic America as well as in Brazil, Spain, United States and other countries. It centers around the adventures and tribulations of the title character—a poor orphan nicknamed "El Chavo", played by the show's creator, Roberto Gómez Bolaños "Chespirito"—and other inhabitants of a fictional low income housing complex, or, as called in Spanish, vecindad. The show's theme song is "The Elephant Never Forgets" by Jean-Jacques Perrey.

In 1973, Telesistema Mexicano and Television Independiente de Mexico (TIM) merged to become Televisa. After the merger, El Chavo del Ocho became a weekly half-hour TV series.

About The Thing

'The Thing'  is not a villain; it is simply a predator of horrific, unimaginable proportions, and we are it's prey. Removing all emotional understandings of "good" and "evil" from the threat, and raising it to the more abstract "survive or die".

Kurt Russell For a cold and unrelenting threat like the Thing, you need a cold and unrelenting protagonist. As R.J. MacReady, Russell isn't really a hero (made evident by his gunning down of colleagues), but he has the detached survival instincts needed to get through the situation. It's his lack of compassion and hesitation that allow him to survive the paranoid scenario.

Free Tyrion!

At the trial for Joffrey’s murder in “The Laws Of Gods And Men”, the May 11 episode of Game Of Thrones, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) delivered a fiery speech calling out his father, Tywin, and the denizens of King’s Landing for their ingratitude and hypocrisy, ending in a demand for a trial by combat — the only fair trial he’ll receive.

"I will not give my life for Joffrey’s murder and know I’ll get no justice here, so I will let the gods decide my fate. I demand a trial by combat".  FREE TYRION!
