Pete Holmes Fires Ken

Published by under Video Games,Videos

I’m not sure if these “Street Fighter Red Tape” videos are quite as good as Pete Holmes’ X-Men series, but I can’t say I don’t enjoy them.

This time around, Holmes calls out Ken for being a clone of Ryu, and more or less useless. Not great for workplace diversity. I really like his surfer dude voice.

“I think people would want to see two hurricane kicks.”

Who do you think will be next? I’m going to go with E. Honda. “You push people. That’s like, all you do.”

The Lion King Cast Makes Air Travel Not Suck

Published by under Videos

I hate flying. Not because of any specific fears, but just that the whole process from ticketing to security to boarding to flying itself is just….the worst.

Well, unfortunately I wasn’t on this flight which would have made my travel day just a little bit better. This video captures the rather enthusiastic Lion King cast singing their hearts out to serenade the passengers and crew with a rendition of “Circle of Life.”

It’s the sort of video that was destined to go viral and sure enough, here we are. Check it out for yourself.

The Dark Knight Hallows

Published by under Movies,Videos

It doesn’t happen too often, but sometimes, one movie’s soundtrack ends up being great matched up with a different film. One of those times is now, where someone has taken the intro to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, and set it to a track from The Dark Knight soundtrack by Hans Zimmer.

The result is a rather fantastic intro for the movie, made infinitely more epic by an alternate universe score. Check it out for yourself above.

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.
