The cult classic film Harold and Maude features an awesome piece of automotive engineering: the Jaguar hearse Harold constructs after his mother takes away his beloved 1959 hearse (a Cadillac Superior coach, owned by a collector in Modesto, CA). Sadly, the original Jaguar hearse was destroyed during the filming of the movie in 1971. But there’s a new hearse in town! Ken Roberts, an Arizona-based car enthusiast, began work to recreate the original Jaguar hearse from Harold and Maude in 2013. Watch this video to learn about the long process to make this amazing vehicle.

After the box office failure of OFFICE SPACE in 1999, Judge’s next effort IDIOCRACY fared even worse in 2006, with the studio practically burying his movie. But in the years since, both of these social satires have found cult followings and have become part of the pop culture landscape with its depiction of a moronic future.

This would be a good sign to TURN AROUND now.

Star Wars, Badly Translated

The subtitles on these clips from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith were translated into Chinese, and then back into English. The results are hilarious.
