There are some movie moments that are so unforgettable, so amazing that they become imprinted on our brain. But just in case our memories fade or get a little fuzzy from time to time, one man is immortalizing these iconic movie moments... by recreating them with Lego building blocks.

Twenty-two-year-old USC student Alex Eylar has put his 30,000-block Lego set to good use, constructing eerily on-the-money recreations of scenes from such flicks as Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" and "Inception."

Click here or on the photo above to see Lego recreations of Harry Potter's Quidditch showdown against Slytherin nemesis Draco Malfoy, a spot-on rendering of Edward, Bella and Jacob in the "Twilight: New Moon" poster, and a Arthur's (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) gravity-defying fight scene in "Inception." Kind of gives new meaning to the term "block-buster." Read More...

"Black Swan" and Jim Carrey might not sound like the ideal pairing of actor and material, but thanks to the "I Love You Phillip Morris" star's hosting gig on "Saturday Night Live," we now know that it's a match made in comedy heaven. Carrey spoofed Mila Kunis as Lily, aka the titular black swan, in a short, while Bill Hader played ballet instructor Tomas and Nasim Pedrad played Natalie Portman's Nina.

Let's just say that Carrey's Lily convinced us in several different ways that "she" was the best choice for the black swan. Somewhere between the buffalo wing tattoos on Carrey's back, the way he said "bitches" and the way he ate breadcrumbs (you know, like a real swan), we fell in love. Read More...

Best Movies of 2010

Like any other year, 2010 has had its share of good and bad -- in general and when it comes to movies. For every piece of filmmaking gold we discovered, there was a steaming cinematic turd to scrape from beneath our shoe. But since the holidays are upon us and I'm feeling generous, I'm going to embrace the spirit of the season, take the high road and bypass ragging on the critical, box-office and creative failures of the past year. Instead I want to focus on celebrating all that was groundbreaking, captivating and good in the movie world in 2010. And, perhaps surprisingly, there was a lot of good stuff in theaters this year.

Jack Black and Jason Segel are arguably two of the funniest men working in movies right now. Black has been a fixture on the comedy scene for many years, lending his unique brand of manic humor to films from "High Fidelity" to "School of Rock" to the animated "Kung Fu Panda." Segel, meanwhile, has earned his funnyman stripes on the TV show "How I Met Your Mother" and in the recent flicks "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "I Love You, Man." He's also the guy pulling the strings of the upcoming, cameo-laden and much-buzzed-about "Muppets" movie (in which Black co-stars).

With Black and Segel's modern-day comedic adaptation of Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels" hitting theaters Christmas Day (December 25), MTV's Josh Horowitz asked the duo to educate him in the art of being funny. The result is the extremely amusing video "Humor: A Comedic Exploration," in which the funnymen impart pearls of wisdom such as these: Rainbow-colored clown wigs are highly comical, and going sans pants equals instant laughs (something Segel knows plenty about from his "Sarah Marshall" days). But more than anything else, Segel and Black wanted to emphasize that the best kind of comedy springs forth from the loins... as in the literal groin area. Read More...

Family Guy: It's a Trap!Tossing zingers at "Star Wars" is old hat for "Family Guy" and its creator Seth MacFarlane. The edgy Fox series has already poked fun at the first two installments in George Lucas' original sci-fi trilogy with "A New Hope" and "Empire Strikes Back" parodies titled "Blue Harvest" (a reference to the original working title of the first "Star Wars" film) and "Something, Something, Something, Darkside" (a reference to, well, nothing), respectively.

Both spoofs have been gargantuan hits, both on TV and DVD -- so it doesn't take a Jedi with an off-the-charts metachlorian count to see why MacFarlane and co. have decided to round out their very own trilogy with the "Return of the Jedi" parody "It's a Trap!" (which, by the by, derives its named from the famous line uttered by General Ackbar in the film).

The one-hour long movie hits DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, December 21, but you don't have to wait until tomorrow for your first look at "It's a Trap!" MTV has exclusively nabbed nine minutes of footage from the flick, including the opening four-plus minutes. Check out the clips after the jump! Read More...

MTV's Josh Horowitz got to live out every blue-blooded heterosexual male's fantasy earlier this week when "Little Fockers" star Jessica Alba popped on by our offices for a good old-fashioned slumber party. Jessica Alba in pajamas, possibly wanting to have a pillow fight -- not a bad gig, right?

Well, as it turns out Alba's idea of a slumber party was just a wee bit different. To be sure, it involved the adorable actress in some very cute PJs -- always a bonus -- but large knives, avocado hair masks and Greek-yogurt facials were also on the menu. Luckily, Alba did agree to the ages-old slumber party pasttime of "Truth or Dare" (which, as we all know, was invented by Madonna). Did things get scandalous? See for yourself...

With which celebrity -- other than Alba, of course -- would you want to have a slumber party? Tell us in the comments!

Robert Pattinson in Water for ElephantsThe trailer for "Water for Elephants" has stampeded its way onto the Internet, giving movie fans a beautifully shot look at the adaptation of Sara Gruen's bestselling novel and its beautiful stars, Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson.

The first thing that occurs to us watching this trailer is that it's a whole lot like "Titanic"... except that the events unfold amid a traveling circus rather than upon a giant ocean liner. Depression-era setting? Check! Love triangle with beautiful woman, overbearing older lover and baby-faced younger suitor? Check! Climactic disaster providing the backdrop for the resolution of all things? Big-time check! Watch the trailer after the jump. Read More...

Booboo in Yogi Bear"Hey, Boo Boo!" So begins this alternate ending to "Yogi Bear," in theaters this Friday (December 17). But while the clip begins with the salutation that has marked almost every Yogi-Boo Boo encounter since time immemorial, both on the small screen and in this new big-screen version, this meeting of the bears ends just a tad differently... specifically with Boo Boo blowing Yogi away with a shotgun. Seriously.

The animation is so clean and clear that online speculation is that the alternate ending was likely created by the film's animators themselves. Whether the hilariously morose clip made its way online purposefully or as an accident remains unclear, but two things are certain: 1) Warner Bros. has one hell of a marketing tool on their hands with this puppy and 2) watching this clip has brightened our day tenfold. Hit the jump to see the video. Read More...
