Gardenzilla Will Demolish Ordinary Garden Gnomes

Oh, you have a garden gnome? How cute. Meet Gardenzilla. He dwarfs your gnomes and could use them as Q-tips. Put Gardenzilla ($25) in the back or front yard and let garden pests, and neighbors, know you mean business. It measures 9″ tall, so it may not crush tall buildings but it’ll keep watch over the yard just fine. test

Temple of Doom Monkey Brains Bowl

Now you can reenact Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom by serving guests chilled monkey brains with this Monkey Brains Bowl ($59). Of course, you probably don’t have monkey brains. Instead, serve jello or pudding in this bowl. It’ll make a fine substitute.

The Making of Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2oo1: A Space Odyssey’

Truly great movies don’t come along every year. Unless you count Kevin Hart or Kevin James movies. Those guys are classic. We need a buddy movie with those two. 100 to 1 odds they’d do a fish out of water movie. Without those two, we’re left with such movies as Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. 2014 plants fifty candles on the spaceship-shaped cake of his film masterpiece. TASCHEN, who make amazing books, comes out with the very special, The Making of Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2oo1: A Space Odyssey’ ($750).

Four volumes of material documenting the amazing set designs, special effects and very unique correspondence between Kubrick and his co-screenwriter, Arthur C. Clarke. In effect, a peek at how talented people collaborated and produced something groundbreaking.

Additional materials include never-before-seen photographs taken straight from the Kubrick Archives. The book comes in a monolith-shaped metallic box and a limited run of 1,500 copies.

Godzilla: The Art of Destruction

Get a great companion piece to go along with the recent Godzilla release. Godzilla: The Art of Destruction ($27) includes 156 pages of illustrations, storyboards and sketches that show a behind-the-scenes view of the movie’s creation from conception to the silver screen. There is one dinosaur though, that might be a worthy challenger to Godzilla’s title.

Back To The Future ‘Power Laces’ Due In 2015

Fans of Back to the Future II don’t soil yourself. Nike will be releasing shoes with power laces sometime in 2015, just like the ones Marty McFly wore in the movie. Designer Tinker Hatfield (very cool name) was at the Jordan Brand’s Flight lab space in New Orleans where he was asked about power laces. “Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!” Hatfield exclaimed. And so the wait begins.

Akira’s Kaneda Bike Made Out of Legos

Akira. Classic anime movie. Legos. Classic children’s AND adult toy. Mash them up and look, it’s the Arvo Brothers creation of the Kaneda bike from Akira. Maybe this can’t be ridden (though this one can), but their DIY manual teaches anime and Legos lovers how to build it. All parts can be readily purchased. No estimate how much money and time this beauty requires. Before deciding to construct this, seriously ask yourself whether or not you have the patience. Or else you’ll come home every day to a giant pyramid of red Legos.

The Godfather Family Album

Not many films can stand up to repeat viewings AND make you want to delve behind the scenes. The Godfather does just that. The Corleone family lives forever on film and now, in an extensive behind the scenes photo book, The Godfather Family Album. Author Steve Schapiro had full access to the entire Godfather trilogy, and captured over 400 black and white, and color photos of the cast and crew. Included are essays and writings that’ll make someone feel really smart to read them. How much did Marlon Brando really eat to fully inhabit his character. This book will answer that question.
