The Simpsons recently tapped Oscar-nominated animator Don Hertzfeldt to animate the opening title couch gag and, well, it’s as weird as you’d expect it to be if you’re familiar with his work. To be honest, it’s not really my thing, but I like how left field it is. The show has been unfunny for so long, can anything save it?
I’ve said it before, I think it would be cool if they allowed different artists to do entire episodes. Like the episode where they paid tribute to Hayao Miyazaki would have been so much cooler if it was entire episode produced by Studio Ghibli. The best thing they’ve done in recent years was that intro to the show by Banksy.

The official trailer for “Inherent Vice” has been released and it looks fantastic! The film is the seventh feature from director Paul Thomas Anderson, who also wrote the screenplay based on a Thomas Pynchon novel.
The all-star cast includes Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Eric Roberts, Michael K. Williams, Maya Rudolph, and musician Joanna Newsom. The icing on the cake for me is the music is once again by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood.
Watch the official trailer below! Can’t wait.
This is AWESOME. Filmmaker Kogonada has sort of become the king of the supercut, collecting all the hand gestures in Bresson films, one-point perspectives in Kubrick films, centered shots in Wes Anderson films and many other essays as he’d call them.
“Eyes of Hitchcock” is a mesmerizing journey through the work of Alfred Hitchcock using a repetitive technique that I haven’t seen used so effectively. Love this. You can read a great interview with Kogonada on Filmmaker. Watch the video below!
