Old Red Jalopy is an illustrator and designer who likes to play with pop cultural images (check out the series on Seinfeld movie posters) so when NextMovie.com decided to take Wizard Rock to its logical conclusion, they commissioned ORJ to reimagine some classic album covers.

- Community’s first table read for the new season; it’s really happening, you guys!

- We’re not sure where Rogue would have fit in The Wolverine, but we’re excited to see her in Days of Future Past!
- Can believing you know the answers to questions have a placebo effect on your knowledge?
- We’d probably be giddy if we went to a Gundam museum too, but Guillermo del Toro really does reach the promised “as a schoolgirl” level here:
