Nic Cage Invades Halo

Published by under Video Games,Videos

What could make Halo, beloved video game shooter franchise, even better? Why, Nicolas Cage, of course. Some intrepid modder has taken it upon themselves to insert Nic Cage’s face into as many places as possible in Halo, and the result is exactly as terrifying/awesome as you might expect.

Master Cage is one thing, but Cagetana is probably where this experiment is the most horrifying. You’ll just have to watch for yourself above to experience the weirdness in full.

Jimmy Fallon Plays Goldeneye With Pierce Brosnan

Published by under Television,Videos

While Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and John Oliver may be the kings of late night snark, there’s no more infectiously likable host than Jimmy Fallon on TV these days. He may not be providing brilliantly incisive social commentary, but he’s always doing something fun to make his show a must-watch.

His most recent endeavor might be his best. To fulfill a childhood dream, when Pierce Brosnan stopped by his show to promote his new movie (The November Man), Fallon had an N64 on hand so the two could play Goldeneye.

That’s right. Goldeneye. With James Bond, himself.

It’s exactly as amazing as it sounds, though you’ll have to watch the video to see how Brosnan does. I can’t believe they didn’t play Temple.

The Real League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Published by under Videos

I think most of us are still doing our best to forget 2003′s League of Extraordinary Gentleman, the botched adaptation of Alan Moore’s famed comic. But the idea of a possible film is not forgotten entirely, at least not by one fan who has made their own intro for a movie/show based in that  universe.

It’s a masterwork of animation, and he’s assembled a half-decent fantasy case too, including John Hurt and Charles Dance in various roles. I would love to see the idea live again in a much better format, and I think that it could work with the right kind of reboot. Knowing Hollywood, I’m sure that’s exactly what we’ll see soon enough.

Looper’s Awesome Proof-of-Concept Trailer

Published by under Movies,Videos

Director Rian Johnson was still a relatively unknown in Hollywood when he wanted to make Looper, and as such, he had to make a “proof-of-concept” trailer to show that it could be as cool in practice as it was in his own head.

Such trailers are made using a few original clips, but mainly other movies that are similar visually and in tone. Here, Johnson drew on films like Se7en and Blade Runner to illustrate what he was going for, in addition to crudely animating a few sequences himself.

It’s a pretty cool cut, and really makes me want to try the same thing for my sci-fi books. I’ll mash-up some District 9, The Road and Mass Effect cutscenes, and I’ll be on my way!

Alison Brie and Jennifer Lawrence in a 2007 Buffy Parody That Never Aired

Published by under Television,Videos

I had to do a triple take here to see if this wasn’t some bad Funny or Die skit, but it’s a very real clip from a very real show which thankfully never aired. It’s a 2007 show called “Not Another High School Show,” which debuted in the height of the “Not Another Teen Movie” craze, meaning someone thought it was a good idea.

It’s so, so egregiously terrible, but the worst part is that it actually has a great cast with Alison Brie as Buffy parody “Muffy,” H. Jon Benjamin as a janitor, and Jennifer Lawrence as…I don’t even know. In the short clip you’ll see that Buffy, The OC and Dawson’s Creek are all parodied, and I genuinely don’t think I could have watched any more of this without bursting into tears from its awfulness.

Thank god all of these actors managed to get past this and move onto bigger and better projects like Community, Archer and winning Oscars. I’m not sure their careers would have survived if this ever actually aired.

Dancing Groot is the Perfect Way to End the Week

Published by under Movies,Videos

It’s been a tough week, right? Well, it has for me, on the tail end of a month-long move across the country. I’m so tired I’m not even sure if I’m really writing this, or if I’m dreaming. Hey, what’s that unicorn doing in my room? Why is a shirtless Chris Hemsworth riding it?

Anyway, if you’re as stressed as me, take a look at baby dancing Groot above, a Guardians of the Galaxy scene which has just been officially released by Marvel for all of us to enjoy. If you know why there’s a baby dancing Groot, it’s a spoiler. If you don’t, it’s not. So it’s probably fine. Just watch it.

All movies need more dancing, is what Guardians of the Galaxy has taught me.

Doctor Who: The Animated Series

Published by under Television,Videos

This is a (sadly) fictional animated series that takes Doctor Who from real life to cartoon form. It’s by animator Stephen Byrne, and even though it’s only a short snippet, gives insight into what it might look like if Doctor Who ever decided to embrace its more childish side, and create a cartoon version of itself.

I may not be the biggest Clara fan, but I can’t deny that the animated version of her is quite adorable. Though I guess the same could be said of Capaldi. Watch for yourself above.

40 Early Celebrity Auditions

Published by under Movies,Videos

Some intrepid supercutter has tracked down 40 rare celebrity audition tapes and mashed them all together into one four-minute video. They’re not so rare where I hadn’t see at least a third of them before, but I’d missed some that did appear to be pretty unique, like Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia audition, or Brad Pitt’s Backdraft audition that made me wonder if anyone ever gave him an early gig for any reason other than his pretty face (hint: I doubt it).

It’s interesting to see how much better nearly everyone here has gotten over time, though the audition process is pretty nerve-wracking I imagine, and I suppose it’s not always a full measure of talent. Some of these you can see right away why they were chosen, however (dat Rachel McAdams cry). Watch the whole video for yourself above.

The Walking Dead Gets an Uncensored Ending At Last

Published by under Television,Videos

For those of us who tuned into the season four finale of The Walking Dead a few months back, we were disappointed when (spoilers) the gang got captured by the new crazies of Terminus. Not because of their predicament necessarily, but because Rick was forced to sign off with such a lame line.

“They’re gonna feel pretty stupid when they find out….

They’re screwing with the wrong people!”

Womp womp.

I’ve never seen a line fall so flat because of censorship, not since the days of “Yipee Kai-Aye Motherlover!” on TV airings of die hard. Fortunately, the uncensored version of what Rick was supposed to say has been released online, and as you can see above, it carries a lot more weight to it. You can show zombies cut to pieces all day long, but think about uttering THAT word? Even once? Forget about it.

Chris Pratt’s Perfect Forgot About Dre Rap

Published by under Videos

That Chris Pratt, he’s so hot right now. I could have told you that for the past six years or so when I’ve been watching Parks and Recreation, but now he’s turned his flab to muscle and starred in the smash hit movie of the summer and nowwww everyone wants a piece of him.

Whatever, that’s cool. I’m fully on board the internet’s next crush. Rare to see a guy, as we’ve been fawning over Emma Stone, Emma Watson and Jennifer Lawrence for like five years now.

The video above has Pratt rapping Eminem’s full verse in Forgot About Dre, something everyone from 25 to 35 should know by heart. On top of that, someone synced it up to the actual track, and the result is nothing short of amazing. Watch for yourself.

Watch Vin Diesel Adorably Get Into Character as Groot

Published by under Movies,Videos

There were many breakout stars among the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy. Chris Pratt will now be sought after as a leading man. Dave Bautista can now be considered an actor. Bradley Cooper demonstrated his ability to voice small mammals. But I think Vin Diesel’s contribution as Groot is being overlooked.

While the character only had one line the whole movie, he was kind of the film’s heart. Vin Diesel knew his part was relatively small, but he wanted to do his best to get in character all the same. He voiced his one line in five different languages (with a million different inflections) and also stood on stilts to imagine what it would be like to be an enormous living tree. He says that he might be called upon to do mo-cap for the next film, and it’s good training.

This is about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen, watch it above.
