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.

Impress Your Friends: All the Lap Skip Glitches in Mario 64

Published by under Video Games,Videos

If you grew up playing Mario Kart 64 like me, chances are you knew one of two of the above lap glitches. Give me three tries and I could do the Rainbow Road leap of faith. Give me five and I could do the Wario track one.

But now, the game has been out for like, 15 years, and in that time people have torn apart the game and found glitches you can’t even dream of. Most are insanely hard to execute in their complexity, but if you can pull them off, you’ll demolish course records.

I’m currently drowning in a wave of nostalgia and think I need to lie down.

Bloom by Pogo, Made Using Only Disney Voice and Music Samples

Published by under Movies,Videos

Here’s something that combines my love of Disney with my love of chill music. Pogo, the expert YouTube mixmaster (is “mixmaster” a thing? I feel like it’s from the ’90s) has made this rather excellent track called “Bloom.”

The entire thing was fashioned using only music and vocal tracks from the Disney films shown, and it’s the sort of video you could watch about twenty times in a row before getting sick of it. Its…hypnotizing. Check it out for yourself above.

Another Godzilla Trailer? Don’t Mind If I Do

Published by under Movies,Videos

What the hell? How did my most anticipated movie of 2014 manage to be the seemingly ill-conceived Godzilla reboot? Awesome trailers, that’s why, and here’s another one. This time an international version.

There’s just something about these spots that sends chills up my spine, and between Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olson and Monsters director Gareth Edwards, I have faith that this bad idea could end up being a very, very good one. I hope this ends up being the next Transformers franchise, but with less Michael Bay and therefore less stupidity.

I need that roar as my ringtone.

Superman Creates the Best GoPro Video Ever Made

Published by under Movies,Videos

I feature about a video day here on the site, but this is the best one I can remember seeing in weeks, months even. It’s from the expert internet filmmakers at Corridor Digital, and has Superman strap on a GoPro camera to document his everyday zipping around Metropolis.

It’s not just like they superimposed arms on a bit of quadrocopter footage. They really went all out, and there’s a reason this has oh, 1.3M views in the last 24 hours alone. It’s that good. Do yourself a favor and watch the entire thing above.

The Dramatic Turnarounds of House of Cards

Published by under Television,Videos

House of Cards has always felt like a B-list show trying really, really, really hard to be an A-list, super serious drama. While it’s certainly still enjoyable, this can especially be found in particular moments like a few highlighted here.

One recent binge-watcher went through and decided to spotlight a number of dramatic turnarounds from the show, as they pop up quite frequently. And a dramatic turnaround is nothing without matching sound cues, and each of these scenes has been made infinitely better by the process.

I think someone should do a supercut of every time Kevin Spacey looks at the camera knowingly, and then match that up with every time Jim did the same thing in The Office. Video editors, go forth!

Hannibal Without People

Published by under Television,Videos

Hannibal is probably my favorite show on TV right now. So much so I’m actually letting David R. do weekly reviews of it here, because I’m so curious to read his thoughts about it. His first review will be going up later today, and you should all look forward to it.

In the meantime, here’s a rather cool video project from Cold Mirror. Hannibal is known for its “too good for TV” cinematography, and that often involves carefully thought-out shots of things other than the actors themselves. The video above is “Hannibal without people,” a collection of these sorts of shots from the entirety of season one.

It’s all of the beauty of the first season, with just a little bit of the horror. Do yourself a favor and catch up on the show if you’ve missed it so far.
