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.

Arnold’s New Web Show is Crushing Things With a Tank for Charity

Published by under Videos

I remember when I was younger and Arnold’s Hummer was the most legendary of celebrity cars. Now we’re both older. I’m not longer impressed with Hummers, so Arnold went and bought a freaking tank.

That’s right, apparently he sought out and bought the exact decommissioned tank he operated during his stint in the Austrian army, and now he’s using it for a new web show where he crushes things by request. He’s taking donations at Omaze where if you give money to support kids, you can suggest things to crush, and even win a trip to fly out and be in the tank while it crushes said things.

I literally cannot think of a better concept for a web show, and if this preview is any indication, it’s going to be exactly as fantastic as it sounds. Popping the roll of bubble wrap? Are you kidding me with how awesome that is?

One of Life’s Great Mysteries: Matthew McConaughey Explains “Alright, Alright, Alright”

Published by under Movies,Videos

Matthew McConaughey is an enigma more than perhaps anyone else in Hollywood. How does one simply flip a switch and end up going from hunky, mindless rom-com lead to the most impressive actor of the year?

That will likely remain a mystery for some time, but what won’t is his signature catchphrase. Here he explains its origins for the first time, so at least we know that much about him now.

Thanks to Remy for finding this.

Korean Pro Starcrafts During League of Legends

Published by under Video Games,Videos

Korean League of Legends pro Maknoon is a busy guy. So busy in fact, he has to actually stack his games on top of each other. Not really, but this is an impressive bit of showing off to say the least.

Maknoon booted up a League of Legends match, and while that was loading, he managed to play and win a Starcraft game while alt-tabbing between the two. He beats his opponent with a Zerg rush in just a few minutes while keeping an eye on League, then manages to go back and win his lane in the other game as well, not having missed a moment.

You’d likely have to know these games to really appreciate this, but it shows a kind of mental and physical dexterity that demonstrates why Koreans have the pro-gaming reputations they do. Amazing.

Someone Went and Motion Stabalized All of The Blair Witch Project

Published by under Movies,Videos

I read that back when Blair Witch first came out, some people actually vomited in the theater. Not because it was so terrifying (though that might not have helped), but because if it wasn’t the first film to use shaky-cam, it was certainly the shaky-cam-iest.

Now, 15 years later, someone has gone through and motion stabilized the entire movie. If you couldn’t watch it before, now you can without all the onscreen waggling. I wonder if they’ll do this for Cloverfield and the Bourne Identity next, as those are the #2 and #3 offenders to be sure. Though to be fair, I think we’re probably immune to the filming style by now, as it’s so commonplace.

Fun fact: I’ve tried to watch Blair Witch 2 three separate times for science, and have never gotten past twenty minutes.

The Triplets of Belleville’s Sylvain Chomet Does a Simpsons Couch Gag

Published by under Television,Videos

Sylvain Chomet is one of the oddest animators in the business, which you would know if you’ve seen any of his work like The Triplets of Belleville or The Illusionist.

Naturally, The Simpsons loves collaborating with talented artists in their field, so they brought Chomet in to do a couch gag. The result is….a bit disturbing as Maggie goes missing and Bart apparently murders a goose by force feeding it corn. I’m not sure what that’s in reference to.

Anyway, it’s pretty fantastic, and it’s not just a cool person directing a gag, he actually animated it as well, which doesn’t happen often.
