Just when the internet starts to feel like a negative space, something awesome comes along to remind us that it also has a lot of amazing things to offer.
If you're a movie junkie or cat lover or both, then the Instagram account @moviecats is made for you. The account has been getting a lot of attention for their creative and funny posts, which shows one man and his cats, Tara and Willow (named after characters from Buffy the Vampire Slayer), recreating scenes from famous movies.
The page was launched last fall by David and Sarah, a couple from the United Kingdom, who started the project for their trivia nights. The first few uploads were a hit online, so they have since turned it into a regular thing. They have also been adding extra excitement by asking their 68,000 followers to guess which films the scenes are from.
Here are 13 Oscar-worthy moments brought to us by Tara and Willow:
1. Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom
3. Lady and The Tramp
4. The Notebook
5. Home Alone
Wait until you see them recreate the pottery scene from Ghost.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Sarah revealed that the cats are affectionate and don't mind posing for the camera even though most of the photos take about an hour or two to create.
She revealed that the E.T shoot was their favorite, but it took a lot of treats to get Tara to comply.
"We had to put treats in the basket, rest the towel over Tara while she ate a treat and then take the photograph as she re-emerged looking for more food,” she explained. "It was such a ridiculous thing to do and there were so many failed shots, we couldn’t stop laughing!"
