Star Wars Gets a Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer

Published by under Movies,Videos

Now that Godzilla has come and gone (for better or worse), Guardians of the Galaxy is officially my most anticipated film of the summer. It’s already given us one of the best trailers of the year, but can it give us a movie to match?

To celebrate its pending release, Unusual Suspects released this recut that has Star Wars given the Guardians of the Galaxy treatment for a new trailer. I’ve noticed this trend recently of old movies getting new-school trailers, where we used to see a lot of newer films getting old school style trailers. Interesting stuff. Check it out for yourself above.

If Breaking Bad Was a Mr. Men Cartoon

Published by under Television,Videos

It’s been a long while since I’ve seen a Mr. Men cartoon on anything other than an ironic nostalgia t-shirt, but here it is again, back to form a parody of Breaking Bad in its signature art style.

I would have never thought of this pairing myself, but that’s why I’m not a popular YouTuber, I suppose. Walter White’s story doesn’t seem quite so terrifying when everyone is round and cartoony, but there’s a bit of a harder edge that breaks through at times.

Watch the video for yourself above, which is longer than I thought it would be.

The Game of Thrones Brady Bunch

Published by under Television,Videos

I haven’t watched The Wil Wheaton Project on SyFy yet, which is essentially “Nerd.0″ from what I hear, but it seems that the show may be finding its groove in terms of crafting pop culture videos.

Last week, they whipped up this new Game of Thrones intro in the style of The Brady Bunch, and it’s actually pretty damn good. The show has some of the most dysfunctional family dynamics ever, and a cast in the dozens, rather than just nine little squares, but it works all the same. Check it out above.

The Surprisingly Excellent Star Wars Musical

Published by under Movies,Videos

I wasn’t expecting all that much from an short YouTube Star Wars musical, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the effort here. Though the cast is visually not all that close to the original, the songs are good enough so that it doesn’t really matter. Hell, now that Disney owns Star Wars, I wouldn’t be half surprised to see a Broadway version of it somehow, someday.

Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome Gets a Modern Day Trailer

Published by under Movies,Videos

The Mad Max series was post-apocalyptic before that was all the rage in science fiction, so one fan decided the film has earned its own modern day-style trailer. The result? A lot of BWAHHHHs, but a pretty good attempt nonetheless.

I honestly can’t remember where, but when I was on a classic kick a few years ago, I watch Mad Max 1 and 2, but quit before Beyond Thunderdome. Is the film really that good, or is it one of those things that’s tinted by nostalgia? Like The Lost Boys, Escape from New York and The Crow. Don’t get me started on any of those.

Voldemort’s Final Horcrux, the Nokia

Published by under Movies,Videos

With the Harry Potter books and films fading into memory, this may not be the most timely video to post, but considering the series is as legendary as something like Star Wars in many ways, I don’t suppose it matters.

The idea of the above video is that Voldemort would have been wise to make his final horcrux something truly indestructible. What could hope to contain the split soul of an evil wizard while resisting every form of magic known to man? Why, a Nokia phone, of course. Watch above.

Vader’s Big Reveal in 20 Different Languages

Published by under Movies,Videos

WARNING: SPOILERS FOR STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK FOLLOW. Sorry, you can’t be too careful in the era of Game of Thrones.

Anyway, someone went through and found all the multi-language versions of Vader telling Luke the big bad news at the end of Empire, and put all 20 of them together in a video. We always think of James Earl Jones as the iconic voice of Vader, but we forget that isn’t the case in dozens of countries around the world where other voice actors were use. This video gives them all their due, and you know, most do a pretty damn good job of it.

Check out the video above. Let’s also do this for when Vader screams “NOOOOO!” in Revenge of the Jedi, okay? There have to be at least a few variants of that.

The Legend of Zelda Goes a Game of Thrones

Published by under Video Games,Videos

I’m not sure if this is the first time Zelda has been given the Game of Thrones treatment (or even the first time on this site, for that matter), but this video is awesome and I want to feature it all the same.

It’s the map of The Legend of Zelda recreated as Game of Thrones intro, and the 8-bit buildings sprout from the earth in a rather beautiful way. It really is a masterfully done variant of an intro that’s been remade too many times to count now.

Has someone made a Pokemon one of these yet?

(searching)

Hmm, all I found was this crappy one, so someone really needs to get on that right quick!

Game of Thrones’ Grey Worm Performs His New Single

Published by under Television,Videos

Think this is a joke? Absolutely not. Like a few members of the Game of Thrones cast, actor Jacob Anderson (stage name, Raleigh Ritchie) is actually a talented musician. The music video above showcase his latest single, “Stronger than Ever.”

You know, it’s actually pretty good. It’s not quite rapping, not quite singing, but I quite like it. It also makes me want to see him bust out in song to win Missandi’s heart on the show, in the love story so cute I don’t even care that it totally wasn’t in the books whatsoever.

Watch above, you may be pleasantly surprised. Or you may hate it, which will cause Unsullied to march to your house and spear you to death.

Watch Arrow Train in a Ninja Warrior Course

Published by under Television,Videos

Stephen Amell is currently one of DC’s best assets in the form of Arrow on the CW, and as fans of the show will know, has the physique the match the part.

So, how does a superhero get in superhero shape? Amell just posted one of his workouts from the Tempest Freerunning Academy that has him running through what is essentially a Ninja Warrior course. I always assumed Amell had a stuntman do most of his wall-hopping, but from the looks of it, he probably does a lot of it himself.

I still don’t understand the physics of a salmon ladder, and it’s nice to know he actually is human, as he screws up at the end. RUN IT AGAIN, AMELL.

Hyper Super Ultra Slo-Mo UK Cosplay

Published by under Cosplay,Videos

Here’s a cosplay music video with a twist. Rather than have those in costume dance around to a popular song, Captain Christel had them do very little at all, and simply used his amazing camera to capture what MCM Expo in London looked like in super, ultra slow-motion.

It’s as cool as you might expect, because well, everything looks better in slo-mo. Just ask Zack Snyder, he’s made an entire career out of the concept.
