Look, the world doesn't need a Grumpy Cat movie. Grumpy Cat was fun for like a week in 2012. Besides, basically all cats are grumpy, that's why they're so great. Anyway, regardless of what I think, a Grumpy Cat Lifetime Chris...

Review: Cam2Cam photo
Review: Cam2Cam
by Alec Kubas-Meyer

In past reviews, I've written about the problems with poor subtitles on foreign films. Improper use of language serves as a distraction from the comedy or drama and makes the experience worse. I love the English language. It's my lifeblood and my livelihood. So when I see it mangled, I get angry. When it comes to foreign films, I can at least forgive the fundamental language barrier. It's the reality of a love of foreign films, and I am willing to cut some slack.

But though Cam2Cam takes place in Bangkok, the film is in English and was ostensibly written by someone whose first language was English. I say ostensibly because I have trouble believing that's true.

Then again, what was I supposed to expect from a movie called "Cam2Cam"?

"Removie" posters reimagine movies with a letter missing

Inspired by an internet meme in which people take a letter out of a film title for silly results, Dublin artist Austin Richards and copywriter Des Creedon have created these "removie" posters based on the one letter removal idea. The posters are surprisingly funny, with movie titles such as "Harry Otter" and "Dawn of the Dad". You can check out their dedicated tumblr for more! [via Laughing Squid]

Amazon Instant Video lives on PlayStation 3 photo
Amazon Instant Video lives on PlayStation 3
by Geoff Henao

Yesterday, Amazon announced that their online video service, Amazon Instant Video, had gone live on the PlayStation 3. Amazon Prime members, in addition to getting a few benefits like free 2-day shipping, are able to take advantage of Amazon Instant Video with their membership. As if Netflix didn't already have their hands full with their subscription shifting and the rise of Hulu, Amazon has come around to take a bite out of the pie.

I took a quick glance through Amazon's library, but didn't find anything really great; there's a lot of overlap between shows and movies with Netflix. However, what Amazon does have over Netflix is the ability to rent same-day new releases directly from the app as opposed to waiting for Netflix. Granted, such rentals go for as much as $5, but if you're too lazy to find a Redbox, this could be big news.

To commemorate the PS3 by being the first gaming console to support Amazon Instant Video, Amazon has made the first episode of more than 100 TV shows free for the week. You can read more directly from Amazon's front page.
