Classic Movies Look Better As Pixel Art

Artist Andy Helms has been going bananas these past few weeks, churning out amazing pieces of movie-inspired pixel art at a breakneck pace.

A Fistful of Dollars, The Goonies, Aliens, The Lord of the Rings, Inception...all covered, all recreated in adorable pixel art, all here for you to enjoy with your morning coffee.

While some are fanciful recreations of scenes and characters, others bear the inspiration of iPhone game Sword & Sworcery, with its trademark pencil-thin limbs and obscured faces. There might even be a video game-related piece in there somewhere...

If the name sounds familiar, that's because Andy was also the guy behind the great "Dude-a-Day" project, where he...drew a dude a day.

These are some of my favourites, but there's plenty more to be found at the link below. You should go there anyway, because many of them are animated .gif files, and they mat not play so nice with our galleries!

    The Twin Peaks one is my favorite by far

    The Twin Peaks one just looks fantastic. The others all seem to look like they'd make great games, too.

    I imagine a fully animated version of that Inception one, following the back of that character through an endless tunnel of baddies, and having to mash buttons like a rhythm game. That would be great fun, IMO.
