Wolverine Performs Les Miserables as Wolverine

Published by under Movies,Videos

It’s a crying shame that the talented Hugh Jackman has never gotten to perform any songs during his tenure as Wolverine, but that’s now about to be rectified. BBC One has gotten him to perform one of his famous songs from Les Miserables as Wolverine instead of Jean Valjean. The result will make you want to date Hugh Jackman, as most things often do.

Watch the video above, and hope it works its way into X-Men: Days of Future Past somehow.

Frank Underwood Comes to Westeros

Published by under Television,Videos

I may have linked to this already, but it’s worth featuring in full all the same. In “House of Thrones,” Frank Underwood does his best to manipulate his way to the throne.

While the concept is humorous, the best part of the video is the absolutely spot-on impression of Spacey’s Underwood. Like, seriously perfectly, and he even looks a little bit like a younger version of him as well.

In reality, Westeros really has its own Frank Underwood, Petyr Baelish. We’ve seen glimpses of that in the show so far, but trust me, it only gets more intense from there.

BaneCat: Scourge of the Gotham Suburbs

Published by under Movies,Videos

How can you make a Bane impression relevant again like 18 months after it was cool? Why, insert a cat, of course.

This is BaneCat, the newest internet superstar who torments his owner the way the original villain had it out for Batman. Well, not quite that extreme, but peeing on stuff is pretty mean too.

I think the most impressive part of this is how he trained the cat not the flip the hell out while wearing a full costume. You can pull that shit on dogs, but not cats. I’m almost positive this will turn into an ongoing series, so tune in for more.

Goat Simulator’s Hilarious Dead Island Trailer

Published by under Video Games,Videos

Dead Island still has the best trailer in video game history (though the game itself was subpar), and therefore, it was logical folks would copy it.

I did not expect one of those games to be Goat Simulator.

For those of you who don’t know what the game is, you play as a goat, and simply roam around a city smashing into things with hilariously ridiculous ragdoll physics. The Dead Island spot above will give you a taste of the mayhem that’s possible, and I particularly liked the rewind to the ending where you see where the goat originally came from.

Goat Simulator. What a world we live in.

Let’s Be Cops Might Have the Best Comedy Trailer In Years

Published by under Movies,Videos

I don’t care what anyone says. I love New Girl, and I look forward to it more than any other weekly comedy. While Zooey Deschanel is perfectly spritely in her own right, she’s aided by a fantastic supporting cast which includes Jake Johnson and this season, Damon Wayans Jr.

Now, someone in Hollywood finally watched these two and realized they’re hilarious. As such, they’ve been given their own starring vehicle, “Let’s Be Cops.” Normally we wait until Friday to post trailers, but I really couldn’t help myself. I watched this three times and laughed just as hard with each repeat viewing. Johnson and Wayans Jr. realize that simply wearing a cop uniform makes you treated way differently (after they leave a costume party) and they decide to see how far they can run with the concept.

Pretty far.

The red band trailer is amazingly cut and scored, and this might be the most well-done comedy trailer since 21 Jump Street (a similar concept) or Pineapple Express (ultimately not a great movie). Glad to see these two getting their comedy due like how Hollywood magically realized Charlie Day is hilarious recently.

Holy God Yes: A Fantastic Deus Ex – Human Revolution Short Film

Published by under Video Games,Videos

Deus Ex: Human Revolution was my favorite game of the year it was released, and it’s stuck with me all this time. The story, the atmosphere, the gameplay the soundtrack. All of it was absolutely incredible.

I’m glad to see that I’m not the only fan, and someone far more talented than myself has directed a short film that’s just a few shades shy of a Hollywood feature. I’m consistently amazed at the quality of these internet-released short films, and everything about this is superbly done, especially the “enhanced” combat. Seriously, that fight sequence was better than anything I’ve seen on film in the last few years.

Check it out for yourself above. Even if you haven’t played the game, you can probably still appreciate it. Director Moe Charif – someone to watch.

The Complete Series of Mario Warfare (So Far)

Published by under Video Games,Videos

YouTube just messaged me to let me know that Mario Warfare: Part 7 had just been uploaded by BeatDownBoogie, and my first thought was “holy shit, they’re up to part seven already?” I followed the series for the first two episodes, but for some reason I lost track of it for a good long while. Now the thing has practically turned into a full length movie with seven ten minute long episodes.

I just finished watching them all to catch up, and I figured maybe a few of you wanted to do the same. It’s the coolest take on the Mushroom Kingdom I’ve seen on video, and they really do a good job with it. Check out the other six parts below after watching the first ep above. Continue Reading »

Ah Yes, The Raid 2 is Out This Weekend

Published by under Movies,Videos

The original The Raid was one of the better action movies of the modern era, and was so good, Dredd decided to swipe literally its entire plotline. Whoops! Anyway, like any good martial arts film, it now has a sequel out in limited release this weekend.

I’ve been reading reviews of it for a while, and it’s being described as one of the most violent action movies ever made. Like, reviewers have literally walked out and gotten nauseous. Now this I have to see.

The above is the final “internet trailer,” presumably made so people like me will share it on sites like this for free, just because it’s awesome. Well goddamnit, it worked. Watch it, and hope it’s playing somewhere near you.

A Hilarious Bit of Irony With Louis CK and Bradley Cooper

Published by under Oddly Enough,Videos

Honestly, I’m not sure how to describe this video other than to tell you to watch it. It’s probably one of the greatest coincidences in Hollywood history, however small it may be.

The first clip is funny by itself just because Louis CK is great.

The second is amazing to counteract the point being made.

The third is icing on the cake and what takes the video from hilarious to “I f***ing can’t believe this worked out like this.”

Just watch.

Say Goodbye to Your Morning: Mr. Plinkett Reviews Indiana Jones

Published by under Movies,Videos

I know this video is a bit old, but Red Letter Media’s lengthy review of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is on YouTube for the first time now, and I never caught it when it was just on their website. You’ll remember Mr. Plinkett from his Star Wars prequel reviews, which are in fact, the best video movie reviews of all time.

This time, he takes on another hated film where George Lucas was involved, albeit less so. He examines why it is that people hate Crystal Skull so damn much, and it can’t really be blamed on one thing. I actually don’t hate the film as much as most, certainly not as much as the Star Wars prequels, but he really captures why it doesn’t sit quite right with me, and most other people too.

The review is over an hour long and well worth it, but a few major points can really sum up the issues. 1) It’s full of references to past films to the point of absurdity. 2) Harrison Ford is old, and no one wants to live vicariously through an old Indiana Jones. People like the idea of the character, not the character himself. 3) The movie is more kid-friendly than it seems as Indy literally kills maybe one person, and never shoots a single enemy, whereas the previous films were full of violence. Indy can’t be a badass by simply through a few punches. He has to crush people under tank treads or shoot three people with one bullet. 4) While I actually didn’t mind the idea of an alien plotline, when you go through and actually try to deduce the story behind the crystal skull and the Mayan temple/spaceship, it doesn’t make any goddamn sense at all.

Watch the review, it’s an hour I don’t think you’ll regret.

Cobra Commander’s March Madness Bracket

Published by under Television,Videos

Alright, so while I know next to nothing about sports and the last time I filled out an NCAA bracket even my coinflip picks got universally crushed by the hand of fate, I did appreciate this video.

It’s from Fox’s ADHD and has Cobra Commander trying to sort out his picks for the year so he doesn’t come in last in the Joe’s pool. I could watch Cobra Commander bitch about just about anything, and this fits the bill. I’m unclear as to why he’s fat with manboobs though.

Does the sports stuff make actual sense? Tell me, sports people.
