Oh no. Oh no no no no no. This is... this is bad.

Anyone who has ever had a pet knows the inevitable will happen, and that the circle of life is cruel and unavoidable. But when a dog, cat, horse, or other creature dies in a genre movie, the circumstances are often shaped by bizarre forces—supernatural, weird-science, and otherwise—that make a tragic loss even worse.…
Well, this is a smurfing surprise, to say the least. But after being horrified by the first Smurfs film and kind of mildly amused by the second, I’m actually smurfing forward to the third big-screen outing for those little blue guys.
If you found a group of tiny blue communists living in mushrooms in your backyard, you would call an exterminator. In Belgium, they made them stars–the Smurfs have been featured in comics, cartoons and movies for over 50 years. But not all Smurfs are as benign as this propaganda would have you believe.
There's nothing more awesome than an evil wizard. Commanding the forces of darkness, chewing the scenery, wielding objects of terrible power... it's a great gig. But it's not one with a lot of job security. Here are 12 terrible mistakes that evil wizards always end up making, which prove their downfall.
It's just a photo of two toys facing off, but this photo by JD Hancock has us imagining all sorts of scenarios in which Brainy and the Brain have to team up. (To take over the world, of course.)
Tons of classic animated series have become live-action films, including the Smurfs, Garfield, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And often... it doesn't work out that great. But which animated series or cartoon must never, ever become a live-action movie? Ever?
Too much Spider-Man is not enough — at least, not according to Sony. The studio says it wants to release a Spider-Man movie, or a Spidey spinoff, every year. Like clockwork. Because with a great media property comes great overkill.
The internal spaces of toys are made up of cotton, plastic, and air. But these amazing sculptures reveal an entire re-imagined internal anatomy for our favorite toys — ranging from Lego man, to My Little Pony, to Barbie — complete with bones, detailed musculature, and internal organs.
If men are from Mars and women are from Venus, then it would be several decades before someone created the space travel technology for men and women to finally meet. Perhaps that's why so many writers, moviemakers and artists have imagined places where only one gender run their worlds. These stories illustrate that…
Smurfs are some kind of idiot garbage from Nazi Germany. A company got the (presumably cheap) rights to make bad cartoons from these blue toys, and the resulting movies are predictably terrible. One funny part is there is just one female Smurf, who must be the sex interest and also the mother of all the other Smurfs.
Short of a Strawberry Shortcake snuff film, you couldn't imagine a more cynical and soul-destroying repackaging of a 1980s cartoon than the Smurfs movie from two years ago. And now they're back. This time around, we're focusing on Smurfette, the only female Smurf, and it's actually sort of interesting.
And we thought Smurfs were creepy looking on the outside. Artist Jason Freeny has ripped off Papa Smurf's skin to show you what these little monsters look like on the inside, and it's pretty creepy.
What happened to Gargamel all those years ago that makes him hate the Smurfs so much? And why are the Smurfs such insufferable pricks to this genuinely funny man and his creepy CG-faced cat? All of these questions will be answered in Smurfs 3: The Beginning of the End.
No one knows why the Smurfs went bad. Did Gargamel get ahold of them? Did they run out of Smurfberries and go madcrazy Did someone put Aggravated Assault Smurf in charge? All we know is that Australia is the latest country to suffer a Smurf-perpetuated crime.
The very first image from the sequel to The Smurfs is out. You have now acquired this information. And are these...albino Smurfs?
You'd better hope Joss Whedon gets around to filming Dr. Horrible 2 soon — or else Neil Patrick Harris may already have lost too much of his inner soul essence to those all-devouring blue plastic monstrosities. NPH is filming a sequel to last year's The Smurfs, and here's your first set photo. Looks like a wedding? Or…
Now that Pixar has announced its Dia de los Muertos film, everyone is getting into the calavera spirit, stripping down to their ornately decorated skeletons. See Smurfs and superheroes bare their skulls and flash their marigold eyes.
Painter Hillary White takes classic works of art and throws in familiar characters like Boba Fett, xenomorphs, and Skeletor. The ensuing pieces delight, induce fright, and resemble yard sale kitsch sold in the seventh circle of the underworld.
Now that The Hunger Games is breaking box office records, one thing's for sure: The CW is going to be racing forward with its TV version of Hunger Games, called The Selection. We can only hope it goes as amazingly bonkers as The CW's answer to Twilight, The Vampire Diaries. Plus if you consider Arrow to be The CW's…
