Watch 2001: A Space Odyssey As a 60-Second Cartoon

2001: A Space Odyssey earns the term "epic" more than almost any other movie. The two-hour-and-forty-one-minute cinema classic is an absolute must-watch. But if you don't have that kind of time, Speedrun just very loosely condensed the plot down to a mere 60 seconds. » 9/19/14 10:45am 9/19/14 10:45am

Making the poster of The Shining was as intense as the movie itself

It's quite interesting to see the back and forth between two creative geniuses like Stanley Kubrick and Saul Bass working on the movie poster of The Shining. It wasn't an easy one for Bass, thanks to Kubrick's infamous obsessive perfectionism. The poster went through 300 versions before getting final approval. » 8/08/14 7:32am 8/08/14 7:32am

Here, apropos of nothing, is an excellent photograph of Stanley Kubrick inside a giant centrifuge directing his actors in 2001: A Space Odyssey. It's a hell of a set and a hell of a movie. [Mappeal] » 11/08/10 4:20pm 11/08/10 4:20pm

Star Wars Kubrick Toys Take It Back To The Origins of Star Wars

I love these Star Wars Kubricks because I have a soft spot for cult toy makers that work with big franchises. The characters for this series were taken from Episodes I-III, and feature the likes of Qui-Gon Jinn, naked C-3PO, and Anakin Skywalker before he grew a rat tail and allowed his hormonally raging manhood to… » 9/24/07 8:15pm 9/24/07 8:15pm
