When you look at Jerad S. Marantz's resume, it's packed with films you can barely remember watching. Jonah Hex, I Am Legend, Clash Of The Titans, Bedtime Stories, Percy Jackson, Nightmare On Elm St....but his concept art is unforgettable.

Marantz has been posting a ton of art on his blog from recent films he's worked on, and it's some of the most vivid creature and monster art we've seen in forever. It's up there with David Meng's art that we featured last week, for sure. (Marantz doesn't seem to have his own IMDB page, but he's all of his work is through Amalgamated Dynamics and The Aaron Sims Company, which are credited for creature design and the like.) Check out some of our favorite images, and see the rest over at Marantz's blog. [Jerad S. Marantz]

I don't care what anyone says about it, I liked Dragonball Evolution. Was it stupid? Yes. Was it completely terrible and ridiculous and over the top in every way? Yes.

My question to the haters: Have you seen the cartoon it was based on? Seriously. How did you people think it would translate to the screen? I loved the energy of the film. It was stupid and groanworthy and completely fucking awesome, all at the same time.
