Illegal immigration is getting out of hand on the U.S.-Mexico border so much that Americans started a series of anti-illegal immigration demonstrations near the border and are blocking the buses with illegal immigrants. What's more, a bunch of LEGAL immigrants are joining Americans in these demonstrations. Republicans are trying to press hard on Obama to take actions against the flow of illegal immigrants to the US.
Unless the flow of illegal immigrants from Mexico to the US stops, America will somehow have to adapt to its new "citizens". Today we will show how such cultural adaptation might go through movies. Take any famous movie and show how it would be different if it were made ABOUT illegal immigrants, BY illegal immigrants, or FOR illegal immigrants (from Mexico).

June 1 is Children's Day recognized in many countries to honor children globally and promote their well-being. Before the 20th century, high mortality among children, child labor, and little to no rights in the society made childhood something you "survive" not enjoy. It all started changing rapidly in the beginning of the 20th century. These days childhood gives little responsibilities but many rights... children can even sue their parents if they feel their rights are not fully respected (where's my iPhone, mom?) :)
To honor children on Children's Day, take any movie and turn it into a children's movie. Change actors
into children (or even babies) or puppets, add pacifiers, rubber
duckies, toys, etc. These are just some ideas.

Hollywood style icon Audrey Hepburn would have been 85 today. Forever young and beautiful in "Funny Face," "Roman Holiday," and "Breakfast at Tiffany's," - that's how Hepburn is remembered. However she still looked gorgeous in her older days - as seen in the themepost.
In celebration of what would have been Audrey Hepburn's 85th birthday, photoshop her in any movies where she did not get a chance to play. E.g. if she were alive and young nowadays which box office hits would benefit from Audrey playing the leading roles?
Martial artist, actor and comedian, Jackie Chan celebrated his 60th birthday on Monday. Jackie Chan was born to a poor family in China, and his parents wanted to give him up for adoption because they could not afford to raise him nor could they even afford the hospital bill. However, after hearing from relatives who decided to help financially, Jackie's parents agreed to keep him and worked hard to raise him in Hong Kong and later in Australia where they relocated. Chan studied martial arts and acting in China Drama Academy. Upon graduation (he was 17), Jackie started acting as a stuntman in Bruce Lee movies. He soon started getting his own first roles in Hong Kong movies and became very famous in Asia. However, it was not until 90s when Chan became a true Hollywood icon with his comedy hits Rush Hour, Shanghai Noon, and their sequels. Jackie is one of the very few actors that does most of his movie stunts by himself and has massive number of scars to prove it. Chan's on-screen fighting technique became very famous - he loves to use furniture in his fights. His Chinese name means "Cannonball."
For his 60th birthday, let's show Jackie Chan in the movies where he did not act, or create sequels to the movies where he did act.

The Crimean crisis is escalating. Past Sunday Crimeans held a referendum resulting in 97% of the voters supporting Crimea becoming a part of Russia. On Monday Crimea declared its independence, and today Putin signed two decrees - first one acknowledging the independence of Crimea, and the second - accepting Crimea into Russia. The border between Ukraine and Crimea is now officially declared by Moscow as the Russian border. Neither the referendum, nor the Crimea's joining of Russia is accepted by the western countries, which are preparing strong sanctions against Russia and are not ruling out any military operations. Russia's foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said that any sanctions against Russia will result in even stronger counter-sanctions. Noone besides China is siding with Russia in this conflict, but even just China is a big international power and can not be neglected either. China and Russia are two post-communist countries that have enough nuclear weapons to turn the US into "radioactive dust", Russian state TV Channel 1 stated on Monday. It looks like Russia and the west are ready to make war, not love.
Take any non-war movie and give it a war theme. Some examples are: give uniforms and weapons to movie characters and movie posters, add military units, nukes, explosions, destruction, smoke. These are just some ideas.
