'Star Wars' Stuff: Benedict Cumberbatch Does Chewbacca, Great Blooper-Reel Trailer and More

4 November 2013 3:16 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

  For a short time during undergrad, I worked at a mall art-and-framing shop. The clientele wasn’t exactly choosy (posters of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's were considered high art), but it always shocked me how much customers oohed and ahhed over the Thomas Kinkade paintings we sold. I had no idea who Kinkade was before working there, but quickly learned all the selling points: he hid a picture of Jesus in every painting (my coworker took great delight in pointing this out to me), and the artworks were embellished by Kinkade’s assistants (like damn factory workers, ick). The pictures sold for a few hundred dollars (ridiculous), and I hated every one of them. I do, however, think this Wars on Kinkade series by artist Jeff Bennett is pretty great...

If 'Star Wars' Invaded Thomas Kinkade Paintings, It Would Look Like This (Photo)

1 November 2013 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A cozy, fire-lit cottage by a bubbling brook seems like such a peaceful haven -- until it's invaded by Imperial troops!

The painter Thomas Kinkade is famous (and much derided) for his corny, cutesy renderings of bucolic country life. So, fellow artist Jeff Bennett decided to add a little action to them -- a little "Star Wars" action.

Bennett incorporated elements of the sci-fi classic into Kinkade paintings -- stormtroopers torching a cottage, walkers approaching a quiet den, a destroyer hovering ominously as unsuspecting residents probably darn socks by the fire.

Just goes to show, "Star Wars" really does make everything better.

Vote 'Thunder & Lightning' For Best DC Nation Short... If You Want To See More.

1 May 2013 3:10 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

I was able to still vote, so I'm assuming this is still live; Courtesy of the Bfmc: Black Folks Making Comics blog: DC Comics is letting the people vote on their favorite  DC Nation Short of season one. I know Amethyst and Super Best Friends Forever has one and two locked up, but how about giving the Pierce sisters a little love by voting for Thunder and Lightning? Send DC a message. We want more of Anissa and Jennifer!

Cartoon Network Debuts 'Thunder & Lightning' (Black Lightning & His Super-Powered Daughters)

12 February 2013 7:43 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

I'm only just learning about this, so some of you (especially if you watch the Cartoon Network, or are plugged into that universe) will likely already be familiar. So what I could determine is that the Cartoon Network commissioned a series of animated shorts for its Saturday morning DC Nation block. One of them is titled Thunder and Lightning, which follows the exploits of the DC superhero Black Lightning (voiced by Blair Underwood) and his super-powered daughters Thunder (voiced by Cree Summer) and Lightning (voiced by Masasa Moyo). Thunder and Lightning receive their costumes from Peter Gambi (voiced by Jeff Bennett) in order to help their father fight crime. Of course I »

Of course I mention this because Black Lightning and his 2 superhero daughters are black. It appears the first short aired last month; I read several comments on various blogs from fans wishing that the Cartoon Network would make the superhero trio a regular series; so apparently, »
