Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ Being Adapted Into Stage Musical
  |  @   |  

Director Guillermo del Toro‘s haunting and beautiful Pan’s Labyrinth is one of the truly great films of the past decade. Now the movie is on its way to a second life, this time as a stage musical.

Del Toro, as if not already insanely busy with other things, has been working on the adaptation for four years now, interviewing and finding the talent to make it happen. He’s also already written the book—or libretto: the narrative structure that keeps a musical from just being a concert with people doing random things on stage, basically—with Jeremy Ungar.

Video: If Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ Was Actually ‘Puns Labyrinth’
  |  @   |  

For those of us who don’t understand Spanish and foreign languages, we rely on subtitles to watch and appreciate the great movies that come out of other countries, such as Guillermo del Toro‘s Pan’s Labyrinth for example. If not for the subtitles in that film, people like myself wouldn’t have a clue what was being said, and this is of course ripe for parody.

While skimming around Twitter recently, I saw a link posted by actor Doug Jones (who appears as Faun and the Pale Man in Pan’s Labyrinth), and had to share with you what was found by clicking said link.

The link led to a video by YouTube user AdamButcher, who decided to take a bunch of clips from Pan’s and alter the subtitles to create what he calls Puns Labyrinth. The video is clearly hit and miss with viewers (judging by comments), and it’s expected that you’ll either find it hilarious or completely pointless. In any case, it’s something to see.

Click over to check out the video now, but be WARNED: there are a ton of spoilers here, so if you have not seen Pan’s Labyrinth you should absolutely NOT watch this. Go see the film first (trust me), and then come back and have a peek.

The Decade List: The 59 Best Films Of The Past Ten Years – Chapter III
  |  @   |  

NOTE: For structural reasons and to ensure that this list is super-duper pretty at all times, we’ll be posting this same intro for all sections of The Decade List. If you’ve already read all of this, you can just head down to the continuation of our list!

Let’s just get it out of the way right off the ol’ bat: yes, we know it’s been a few months since we left the decade. Most folks undertook this heavy task pre-2010, but we decided that it would be a little bit better to let the new year settle in a bit before hitting you with something of this magnitude.

So here we are, geeks: we’ve officially arrived in FUTURE *cue retro ’50s sci-fi music* and still we have no freakin’ flying cars yet. What’s the deal with that? While it is pretty exciting to be inside of the year 2010 — a year that always seemed unreachable to us mere mortals — we are also exiting another entire decade that leaves us staring at one majorly epic task. That task? To search, dig, locate, retrieve, organize, polish, and present the very best films of the past ten years!

We must once again declare that this list is also simply opinion. You are are without doubt going to find movies here that you hate and do not think deserve to be included. You will surely think of movies that you think should not only be on here, but that should be at the very top of the list. There will even be some that I have not seen and thus, can not add. Even at this very moment, I sit, worrying and wondering if I’ve forgotten any that I would include; that’s just the way things fly when compiling something this massive.

With all of that said, we invite you in to relax and check out Chapter III our list, The Decade List: The 59 Best Films of the Past Ten Years!
