The Late Movies: Dogs Being Cute

Let's just get this over with. I saw a cute dog video (the first below), and decided that y'all needed some more cute dog videos in your lives. Now, on with the show!

Labrador With Human Hands


Puppy Can "Whistle"

This little guy can mimic human whistles with his high-pitched howls!

Puppy Confused By Whistling

This guy is not sure what to do when his owner starts whistling. After some quizzical head-tilting, he just gives up.

Barrel of Puppies

Oh jeez. Bichon puppies scrabbling, wagging, and jumping. (The video description says they were being moved from house to playpen, so no, they didn't stay in this barrel for long!)

Bichon Frise Can Fetch at 13 Weeks

He's pretty good.

Falling Asleep on the Stairs

Animals falling asleep never gets old.

Dog Watches Movie About Dogs

This four-month-old golden retriever gets emotionally involved with "Air Buddies," a movie that features dogs speaking with human voices. Note that this dog is perhaps the ONLY viewer to be so interested in this film, which Wikipedia explains is the sixth film in the "Air Bud" series.

Welsh Corgi Puppy Doing Nothing in Particular

I don't need the puppy to be doing anything in order for it to be cute. Just hanging out, looking at stuff, waddling around, moving its ears. That'll do. Bonus points because one ear is floppier than the other.

No matter what their powers, every super hero has an origin story, from Spider-Man’s radioactive bite to Iron Man’s life-threatening chest shrapnel. In their latest poster, the designers at Pop Chart Lab have taken their infographic savvy to the Marvel Universe, charting the heroic origins of 36 different Marvel characters through miniature, minimalist comics.

Without using any words, they’ve managed to illustrate Bucky Barnes's plane explosion and subsequent transformation into the Winter Soldier, Jessica Jones’s car crash, the death of the Punisher’s family, and other classic stories from the major Marvel canon while paying tribute to the comic book form.

Explore the poster below, and see a zoomable version on Pop Chart Lab’s website.

The Marvel Origins: A Sequential Compendium poster is “the first release of what we hope to be a marvelous partnership,” as Pop Chart Lab’s Galvin Chow puts it. Prints are available for pre-order starting at $37 and are scheduled to start shipping on March 8.

Your $10 Donation Can Help an Underprivileged Child See A Wrinkle in Time for Free

Theater chain AMC is teaming with the Give a Child the Universe initiative to help underprivileged kids see A Wrinkle in Time for free through ticket donations. The initiative was started by Color of Change, a nonprofit advocacy group that designs “campaigns powerful enough to end practices that unfairly hold Black people back, and champion solutions that move us all forward.”

"Color of Change believes in the power of images and supports those working to change the rules in Hollywood so that inclusive, empathetic and human portrayals of black people and people of color are prominent on the screen,” the initiative’s executive director, Rashad Robinson, said in a statement:

Director Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time is the perfect subject for the group because, as Robinson puts it, “By casting a black teenage actress, Storm Reid, as the heroine at the center of this story, the filmmakers and the studio send a powerful message to millions of young people who will see someone like them embracing their individuality and strength to save the world.”

The movie touts a diverse cast that includes Mindy Kaling, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Zach Galifianakis, and Chris Pine. The most important member of the cast, though, is 14-year-old Storm Reid, who plays the main character Meg Murry, a young girl who tries to save her father (Pine) who is trapped in another dimension. The movie is based on the acclaimed 1962 fantasy novel by author Madeleine L'Engle.

If you’d like to donate a ticket (or more), you can just head over to the Give a Child the Universe website and pledge an amount. AMC will provide one ticket to children and teens nationwide for every $10 given to the cause.

And if you’re interested in seeing the movie yourself, A Wrinkle in Time opens on March 9, 2018.
