This Melting Metallic Sphere Will Mess With Your Mind

May 26, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

While there were a lot of cool things at the Frieze Art Fair in New York this year, Melter 3-D blew them out of the water. The animated sculpture by Takeshi Murata was debuted by Ratio 3 and is one of the coolest things we've seen in a long time. Technically a zoetrope, the metallic sphere gives off the illusion of melting liquid flowing across its surface. It looks so real that we have a hard time understanding how it could be a tangible art installation.

Stand Aside Fifty Shades of Grey: 14 Mainstream Movies That Pushed Serious Sexual Boundaries

May 7, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment

Ever since the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey was announced, fans have been losing their minds over just how sexy the movie will be (newsflash, they want it really sexy). Last year producer Dana Brunetti voiced his interest in making two versions of the movie, one R-rated and one NC-17 — though now it seems that the film will be sticking with R. The buzz and controversy around the highly anticipated bondage flick made us think back on past mainstream titles that were almost too sexy for an R rating — and some that definitely were.

easyJet Breaks World Record With In-Air Bard Performance to Make National Shakespeare Day a Reality

Apr 25, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

The anniversary of Shakespeare's birth (and maybe death) was Wednesday, meaning people all over the world scrambled to dust off their copies of Hamlet so they could show off their Bard knowledge to unsuspecting victims. And yes, we know that there's a general haze around Shakes' exact day of birth and death, but let's just go with it. To celebrate the playwright's 450th birthday, easyJet decided to do things a little differently by putting on a Guinness World Record performance of an abridged version of his most famous works for lucky customers on a flight to Italy.

Costume Designer Judianna Makovsky Takes Us Behind-the-Scenes With Captain America

Nov 21, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

When I called Judianna Makovsky for a chat, Gary Ross happened to be on the other line — no big deal. Nominated for three Oscars, the costume designer has had a long run in the movie business without ever limiting herself to any one specific genre. Sure, she's worked with Ross several times (from 1988's Big to 2003's Seabiscuit to their most recent Peter Pan project), but that's because her decision to work on a film is hugely influenced by the people backing it.

Inside the World of Divergent: Stars Chat About Auditions, Training, Fears & Favorite Scenes

Mar 10, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Divergent is without a doubt, one of the most highly anticipated flicks to come around since the first Hunger Games, with fans of the books practically salivating at the thought of seeing their favorite characters come to life. Sure, most people are excited to see Shailene Woodley and Theo James portray the two lovers at the heart of the story, but personally, I was more excited to see Ben Lloyd-Hughes and Christian Madsen play my two favorites from the book: Will and Al.

Feb 18, 2014  |   Contributor: Erin Fitzpatrick

John Neyrot’s career is the envy of guys everywhere: Not only does he photograph girls in bikinis for a living, but his job also entails painting girls’ naked bodies — a few times at the Playboy Mansion, no less. Oh, and jetting off to exotic locales is also part of the job description. As much as his life seems perfect, especially among you Sports Illustrated Swimsuit fans out there, he promises that his path wasn’t always as exciting.

Do you love The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe? So do we. Which is why we are in love with Selçuk Yilmaz's metal lion sculpture named Aslan. Okay, so maybe he didn't specifically name this larger-than-life lion after our childhood hero (since Aslan is actually Turkish for lion), but we don't care.
