I don't care if it's old. It's good. Especially the horse's head done LGB style.

It should be "its skin."

That's funny - I noticed that too. On the author's blog, he's got a long, funny post about that misspelling (apparently, he didn't notice it until after his book went to print!)

Love these. I wouldn't mind a print of The Graduate picture.

not bad.... could be a little edgier. those are all such classic movies & scenes that it almost seems a bit commercial.

AWESOME. It's such a great juxtaposition. I can think of a million great scenes and lines this treatment would work for.

I love Se7en! One of my all-time favorites! Creepy moment in that movie too. Very memorable.

Also, noticed the "its" misspelling and laughed. I will have to read his blog about it. :)

Actually, I believe "it's" is correct, since it implies ownership. Replace it with "John" and you'd need the apostrophe.

Did anyone recognize the first one as "The Professional" (nee "Leon") with Jean Reno (DaVinci Code) and the first time we saw Natalie Portman? They didn't have the movie name posted with the image. One of my all time favorites!

No, from an English teacher...the proper possessive is (counter-intuitively)"its," not "it's."

Gotta include "Fargo" to make the series complete :)

"It's" is a contraction of "it is" If you can replace "it's" with "it is", then it's correct. The first picture is repeated later, with the caption that it is indeed from "The Professional" (the only movie I've never heard of).

"... it rubs the lotion on its skin..."

There is NO apostrophe in "its." Learn grammar, punk.

You all definitely need to check out "The Professional" (if you haven't already). Definitely classic.

Wow! Cinema history began in 1967 and only concerns films made or released by a major Hollywood studio?! Pretty sad.

Fargo, Pulp Fiction? Need those. A Kill Bill one would be good also
