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.

Mark Hamill Does Star Wars as Luke and the Joker

Published by under Movies,Videos

Mark Hamill is a great sport, doing the Joker voice on command at nearly every con he goes to, but I think this is the first time I’ve ever heard him blend together his two most famous roles, adding Luke Skywalker into the mix.

In the video above, Hamill delights everyone by recreating a famous scene from Star Wars (where really every scene his famous) subbing in the Joker where appropriate. Well maybe not “appropriate,” but “hilarious” at least. Check it out for yourself above.

Mech: Human Trials – A Wicked Cool Sci-Fi Short

Published by under Videos

From filmmaker Patrick Kalyn comes this rather excellent sci-fi short called “Mech: Human Trials.” Definitely worth the six minutes, and by the end, I wished it was a full-length feature.

“After a serious accident, a man is introduced to a designer street drug promising to restore his ravaged body. Desperate to mend himself, he becomes consumed by the drug – only to discover it is threatening his humanity.”

Give it a watch for yourself above, you won’t regret it.

The Mountain: Birthday Party Hulk

Published by under Television,Videos

Two Mountain videos in one day? Yep, though this one has nothing to do with Game of Thrones directly, so you don’t have to fear any spoilers.

It shows the actor getting airbrushed green so he can surprise a three year old as a real-life version of the Hulk for his birthday party. Problem is, he’s so true to life he’s almost terrifying, and I think it takes a little while for the kids to understand he’s not actually a real life monster.

Anyway, this guy is awesome. I think we all need to see him doing nice things to offset what happened last Sunday…

Oberyn vs. The Mountain: The Happy Ending

Published by under Television,Videos

(Obvious Game of Thrones spoilers ahead)

Many of us are still in shock of what went down this Sunday during the Oberyn Martell vs. the Mountain grudge match with the life of Tyrion Lannister in the balance. Oberyn met a rather horrible end, so much so that many are in denial of the entire thing.

That’s what spawned the creation of this video, which shows how the scene could be tweaked to produce a happier ending for us all. In my eyes, it greatly improves upon the original, and I think we can all agree to pretend this is what happened, at least until the next episode airs and we’re smacked back to reality.
