Piñatas Go To The Movies

Grab some goofy cinema-themed piñata desktop backgrounds courtesy of Rare's community crew.

We're suckers for Viva Piñata around here. So sue us.

Rare's community manager George Kelion posted a nice little holiday gift over on the NeoGAF forums: A set of desktop backgrounds featuring piñatas in various scenes from classic film. They can be yours for the low, low price of...well, just click on them below.

All these go way over the head of the 'target' audience for Viva Pinata, good job they're going for the actual audience :)

Some of these are too vague for me to laugh at. First one could be anything from Harry Potter to Lord of the Rings.

Love the Pinata games, a breath of fresh air for the 360, Brad definitely knows what he's talking about! Backgrounds are pretty cool.

I'm not so into them. I love Viva Pinata, and was hoping for a really awesome background, but these aren't doing it for me.

Clockwork Pinata, awsome, but what is he doing with the milk?  Looks like he's gonna snort it through a straw.  And I don't get what the first one is supposed to be.  Also I'd say the last one, even though Dr. Who had many many movie adaptations or miniseries, I'd say its still more a television show than a movie.  Whatever, theyre a hilarious treat.

My desktop is now the Clockwork Orange one. Sweetness.

Though my only problem is that the pictures are pretty low res and they look kind of jaggy when I blow it up to the desktop.

I'm not sure what the last one is. I think the first and second one are both Indiana Jones, though they feature different main pinatas. In the first picture, I think the three dudes are the main bad guys from the first movie, like the face melting dude and the other two guys.

The first one is obviusly Dracula or some other classic vampite film. Stake and coffin, vampire bat. The last one looks like Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure maybe? Hippy hair, time travelling phone booth, strange background.

I cant figure out qhat the first and last one are from. The A clockwork orange/Pinata one is creepy, mostly because of the context in that movie.
