Dangerously Bad Ideas

This is a reminder I need quite often.

Captain America lipstick...and a question. [Avengers]

This is gorgeous. Wouldn't this be fun for the Fourth of July?

But I have a question: if you do this, do you just not talk, eat, drink or lick your lips? I know I'd ruin this in about 3 seconds. :(

The Dark Knight + Music From Vertigo = Woah!

I came across this video on Set Phasers to LOL last night. Plan 9 Pictures put music from Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo with the opening scene from The Dark Knight. The way the dramatic beats in the scene match up with the music is a little freaky. The longer I watched, the more drawn in I was. I'm wondering how much Hitchcock's work influenced Christopher Nolan, even subconsciously, for the timing to be so close. 

Another thought: This music also amps up the tension of the scene, I think, though I'm not sure if it's because it's this music or simply because it's different than the music I'm familiar with in the scene. I think the removal of all the dialogue adds to the tension, as well.
