Want to win a DVD of Clash of the Titans?

We loved Clash of the Titans (see io9's enthusiastic review), and our only complaint was that the 3D looked crappy. That's why it's a perfect DVD flick, because you get all the campy, fun goodness of giant monsters and none of the tacked-on 3D stuff. Now you can win a Clash of the Titans DVD if you skip over to our… » 7/27/10 10:32am 7/27/10 10:32am

Exhibit A for concept art that's cooler than the finished product

When you look through Miles Teves' online concept art portfolio, it's hard not to feel sad about how cool Terminator 3 and Terminator Salvation, plus a Dune movie, could have looked. And his design for Spider-Man's Goblin is clearly superior. » 6/17/10 4:00pm 6/17/10 4:00pm
