As an inveterate Fincher fanboy and an appreciator of well-designed title sequences, there’s no way I could omit Art of the Title’s retrospective on the director.

Indiana Jones, as seen in earlier adventure movies.
FIN – SWE in the ice hockey world championship final.

Spoilers of various kinds from more than 70 movies compressed into a single montage.

100 cats in IKEA.
No Tyler Durden, though.

The darkness does add an extra edge to the song.
Wrong on so many levels.
The “best new band of 2010″-award has been firmly gripped by Barren Earth.

Yesterday’s double-header was an accidental one, today’s is on purpose.
My introduction to Seals and Crofts’ Summer Breeze was Type O Negative’s version, off their magnificent Bloody Kisses album of 1993.
Here’s both: the original harmony rock anthem, and the cover by the Brooklyn metallers.
