2001: A Space Odyssey As A Picasso Painting & Blade Runner As A Van Gogh

Wow. I absolutely love the look of this!

Apparently someone named Bhautik Joshi used “Google’s neural network to teach Deep Dream to interpret Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey as a Picasso painting”. Did I even say that right?! I honestly have no idea what that sentence even means, hence the quotation marks as I’m kind of quoting THIS ARTICLE ABOUT IT. That link contains short videos of Joshi’s Deep Dream interpretations of the Picasso-like 2001: A Space Odyssey as well as Blade Runner looking like Vincent Van Gogh’s The Starry Night.

I have no idea what the hell Deep Dream is but I love seeing these two absolute sci-fi classics looking like paintings from two of my favorite artists. Good job, Bhautik Joshi! 🙂

Classic Movie Posters Starring Toy Story Characters

I like these! Would love to see more of these starring other Pixar characters too. I bet Mike Wazowski would make for some great posters. Or WALL-E! 🙂 

Artist Jim Tuckwell has so far created three posters of classic films starring Toy Story characters. 2001: A Space Odyssey is my favorite but Platoon & Reservoir Dogs are also great. You can see the others here: Deviant Art

**Oh, and I just realized that this is my 1,000th post. Woohoo! I should’ve saved it for my review of The Peanuts Movie but don’t have it ready yet. Will try to post that tomorrow! 

My Top Ten Number Movies 

Being a crazy alphabetizer, those movie titles that start with numbers kind of annoy me! And should they go from lowest to highest number?? No! I believe the socially accepted order goes like this, for example: 10 then 10,000 BC then 12 Angry Men then 127 Hours then 1408. Right??? Crazy! 

So here are the simple rules for this top ten list: the movie title must start with a number (not spelled out). Loads of movies have a number somewhere in the title but I’m talking about the ones you have to put before ‘A’ on your DVD shelves. 😉

Today I have a lazy list just counting down from ten to my number one favorite. Here are My Top Ten (10??) Number Movies:

10. 21

9. 54

8. 50 First Dates

7. 13 Going On 30

6. 10 Things I Hate About You

5. 30 Days Of Night

4. 12 Angry Men

3. 2001: A Space Odyssey

2. 101 Dalmatians

1. 28 Days Later…

Honorable Mentions:
28 Weeks Later
2010: The Year We Make Contact
12 Monkeys (before anyone moans at this not being in the top ten, it’s because I barely remember it now & need to re-watch it. Also, I think it may officially be Twelve Monkeys)
200 Cigarettes
28 Days
1408
1984
21 & 22 Jump Street
(500) Days Of Summer
The 40-Year-Old Virgin
976-EVIL (Okay, I never saw it – just always loved the title!)
