Without some skilled artists behind the scenes, movies simply would not be nearly as awesome.

This is how Hollywood works. If you can use special effects, then you can shoot you movie even in your backyard. Let’s take a look at these pictures before and after special effects.
Some of the best family films are those that include our beloved animal friends. Seriously, what characters pop into your head when you think of your favorite childhood movies? Beethoven, Wilbur, Babe, Air Bud, Milo & Otis, Chance, Sassy, and Shadow, Lady and the Tramp- the list goes on and on. Animals have proven not only to be man’s best friend, but celebrities as well. So when it comes time for your little ones to hunker down and watch a movie with you, you’ll know which ones are kid and parent approved. With so many films that revolve around animals, however, it’s difficult to choose which ones are truly the best. We’ll take a peek at 5 of the top-rated (and classic) family friendly pet films that even Rover will enjoy.
1. Milo and Otis: This film follows a young cat and dog throughout their exciting adventures. Both grew up on the same farm where they began to cultivate a genuine- and certainly curious- friendship, when suddenly they become separated. The pair each sets out on their own perilous quest to find the other across plains and snow-covered lands, through streams, and over mountains. In the end, you can’t help but cheer on the two most impossible of friends.
Every film became great to see because of a great makeup artist. so today we present to you 10 great makeup artists and the creations that made them famous in Hollywood movies.
1. John Caglione, Jr.
John began his career as a makeup artist on Saturday Night Live in the late ’70s. At first he worked for the famous make-up comedians. His success began with a moment when he was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Makeup for his work on the famous Dick Tracy, and entrenched after the second nomination for makeup for the most popular and most recognizable villains in recent history Heath Ledger’s Joker.
2. Greg Cannom.
This is probably the most versatile make-up artist in the world of show business. In his piggy bank works such as makeup for the artist on Michael Jackon’s “Thriller” music video, Mrs. Doubtfire, Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula, as well as more recently for the movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” In addition, Greg also has another six nominations under his bank for best make up for such films as “A Beautiful Mind” and “Titanic.”
Whether they deserve it or not, bikers have a reputation for being rebellious free spirits. Perhaps the most common places we see these stereotypes are in films. Here are some of my favorite 5 rebellious bikers throughout history!
1. The Wild One
When any mention is made of rebellious biker movies, the first one that comes to mind by almost everyone is the iconic “The Wild One.” Laszlo Benedek directed the film that was produced by Stanley Kramer in 1953. Marlon Brando was unforgettable in his portrayal of the legendary character Johnny Strabler, and also in his particular style as the narrator of the movie. His motorcycle of choice was a 1950 Triumph Thunderbird 6T. His image was perfected with a Perfecto motorcycle jacket and a captain style hat always tilted to the side for a cocky look that matched his personality.
Even after all these years the image that Brando created for Johnny Strabler in “The Wild One” remains powerful today. His long sideburns started a style that James Dean and Elvis Presley picked upon. More recently Shia LaBeouf in the 2008 Indiana Jones film, “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, rides onto the scene looking like Johnny himself.
