      • OneClownShoe

    #19 Cool

    • RockSteady

      Doesn't get any cooler. They are the greatest artists i know.

    • Jenny

      Is it just me or does Donatello look like Ben Stiller? Maybe a little?

    • socket2me

      You mean they weren't real mutated turtles ??

      • Danno Maurer

        They sure as heck aren't aliens

  • Rusty Shackleford

    #14 Still awesome after all these years

    • JPFan

      Jurassic Park 3D is coming is coming June 2013. Can't wait!

    • Velo

    • mijo69

      Reminds me of Peter Griffin faking Quagmire's death

  • Jack

    I like Hitchcock directing the lion…

    • Maybe

      As though he's telling the lion: "Ok, that was good. Now let's try it again, but this time gimme some 'ROAR!' like you mean it, you big pussy."

  • Air

    All awesome movies

  • thingsnstuff

    Fuck that movie. Sorry ladies.

  • Vent187

  • imjake09

      Living in the sewers.

    • sureman123

      ninjas always seem to hide well

  • imjake09

    #4 I want one, real bad.

    • Valeria Crystal

      If necessity is the mother of invention, WHERE IS MY GODDAMN JETPACK??

      • gnocco

        Over water flying about 30Ft up. They're fun.

    • Ralph The Avatar

      This wasn't from the movies, but from the Star Wars Holiday Special. Look at Ford's hairstyle

  • zWilly

    #7 my childhood is all a lie!

    • Master_Rahl

      hope Jimbo used good deodorant, that other puppeteer is all up in his armpit.

      • Guest

        My exact thought.

    • thedude325

      I think the caption should read: Thug Life.

  • Bangerang

    #8 #20 miniatures beat green screens any day.

    • Jenny

      #20 Looks like the AT-AT's could have easily been defeated with a simple slingshot

    • Lulatsch

      Why where the AT-ATs in #20 placed by Jack Nicolson?

  • TpJmmy

    Had to laugh when I saw #25, don't know why.

    • Jesse Bonales

      That's just pure awesome! How ingenious!

    • BAC

      I don't get it….the text is white here but yellow in the film, there is the string down the centre, obviously in the way, so the whole thing needs touch up, so why not create the whole thing virtually???

  • NebraskaChiver

    #14 I just died a little inside.

    • Kator

      Why? If you watch the behind the scenes/making of the dinos, it's actually an amazing feat, and worth appreciating. That animatronic puppet weighed in at about 1 tonne, and was an incredible achievement in itself. Nobody does it like Speilberg!

  • Angela Nelson

    #17 and then she let go

    • habsfanx

      Did u ever noticed that they were enuff space on that raft or wood for both of them LMAO !!!!… Greedy as always lol KCCO

  • Liong

    <img src=""&gt; Could you share with me some of your favorite technologies and hands-on experiences?<img src=""&gt;

  • MohawkJon

    Was kind of a give in.
    Would have been cooler if he was really hung in the air!

    • darkSurge

      Well, you know, maybe they can go back and reshoot the….oh wait. NVM.

    • OneClownShoe

      given* public schools are really sad these days

      • MohawkJon

        My apologies to the grammer Nazis.

        I agree, public schools are sad these days. Especially with punctuation.

    • Grammar


      • MohawkJon

        You're just late, and a follower.

    • dawgbone

      Tom Cruise would have.

    • 340Swinger

      Hell, given the way Chris Nolan does things, it wouldn't have surprised me if he really hung Ledger over a building.

  • Mads

    LOVE these posts Chive, keep them coming!

  • absolutcarcrazy

    stop the fucking bus……. ET wasn't real? My whole life is a sham.

  • mrjimmyos
  • Andy Valentine

    Hold up. Are you saying all that stuff in the movies isn't real?

  • echogeo

    Anyone else remember that show, "How'd They Do That?"

  • Scott

    First one was the best. By the last one, it was all like WTF?!?

  • JamesJangles

    What movie is #11?

    • Stains

      looks to be from inception. or is it?? *quickly pulls out spinning top*

    • @Jona


  • Alan

    Ouch, right in the childhood.

  • jimbob

    #7 something should stay a mystery. broken childhood now

    • Cras

      Nah, think of the awesome creativity of the people underneath. You're looking at (left to right) Richard Hunt, Jim Henson and Frank Oz. Only Oz is still alive today, sadly. Hunt was, among others, Beaker, Scooter, Sweetums and Statler. Henson did Ernie, Kermit, Swedish Chef and a shitload of other original characters, while everyone knows Oz best as Bert, Fozzie, Miss Piggy and Yoda. All 3 played major roles in the shaping of the Muppets, Sesamestreet, Fraggles, you name it.
      Ever since finding out how the Muppets work i've been wanting to know more and more about the creative processes behind those awesome shows.
