The next time you’re feeling lost on creativity (or just need some drama to put your artistic troubles in perspective), take a night off and consider checking out one of these movies:

1. Lust For Life (1956) Kirk Douglas and Anthony Quinn lead as Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin in a critically applauded movie about a group of artists who helped to define the label of “troubled genius.”

10 Harry Potter Characters Scarier Than Voldemort

September 23, 2011 by  
Filed under Misc, Odd World

With the highly anticipated release of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 now countable in hours rather than days or months, talk around the Cinema Blend watercolor has been dominated by all things Potter. We can’t help ourselves, besides arguing about movie-related nonsense is most of the reason we do this for a living, and as films go, the Harry Potter series, with its detailed backstory and endless stream of characters, is ideal for useless would-you-rathers and crazy best-of-lists. What you’re about to read is just one of those lists. It started as a debate between a few of us over Voldemort’s ranking against other famous movie villains. Eric and I aren’t overly fond of the Dark Lord, and when one of us suggested there were 10 Harry Potter characters scarier than he-who-shan’t-be-named, the vicious bickering turned into a challenge. And now here we have it, 10 Harry Potter characters scarier than Voldemort.

Encompassing man, woman, animal and plant, the list you’re about to read was carefully scrutinized and poured over. It contains heroes and villains, some fundamentally important to the Harry Potter myths, others non-plot essential randoms. A few are creepy, more are genuinely evil and one or two may be serial killer level sociopaths. All are scarier than Voldemort. Check out Cinema Blend’s official list, then vote in the poll or add your own suggestions in a comment below…
