Walt Disney

It is safe to say that many of you are fans of Sin City, or at least warm-blooded enough to be interested in the scintillating ladies that graced it’s posters. As well, we have all grown up with such Disney classics as The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and Snow White. So when I tell you that someone, namely artist Curt Rapala, decided to combine the two into a set of six posters, you should all be just a little interested. I know that I was. Below you will find his entire gallery, six posters taken from the exact posters for Sin City, but this time with popular Disney femmes in place of the real life actors. My personal favorite is the one pictured above as well, in which Ariel from The Little Mermaid stands in for Jessica Alba as Nancy. As Rapala explains on his website, this is one of those projects that really has a unique appeal: I loved the idea from the moment I thought it up, so I had to pursue it. There’s just something so incredibly awesome about the idea of juxtaposing something brutal, harsh, sexy & violent, like Sin City, with something wholesome, fun, and child-friendly, like Disney. Have a look for yourself at some of the brilliant posters below, and be sure to visit Rapala’s website NotAFishingLure.com for the high resolution versions and other cool art.

Wall-E

Damn this Wall-E movie — it is forcing me to use the word “cute” at every turn. How am I supposed to maintain my sense of masculinity if I am continually drawn to writing about this cute, cuddly, awesome looking film? It gives me a headache.
