Because It’s Friday (For Real This Time): Titanic in 5 Seconds

Yeah, I know, I know, I had a Friday post yesterday, when it really wasn’t even Friday. The point is it’s Friday now, so shut up. For all of you who haven’t seen the film Titanic or those of you who feel like watching it again, here it is, compressed down into five seconds of masterful cinematography and Canadian pop ...

DVD Rewinder: An Indispensable Gadget

I’m not quite sure how my household would get along without this DVD Rewinder, a truly necessary gadget in any man serious about his media. I despise receiving DVDs from Netflix, only to find that they haven’t been properly rewound. I do not care to see the middle of a film before I’ve seen the beginning. It’s almost as irritating ...

Premakes: Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back, 1950s Style

If George Lucas had been born about 25 years earlier, Star Wars would have turned out a hell of a lot different. In this excellent “premake” trailer by Ivan Guerrero, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is transformed into a campy 50s sci-fi epic, complete with chintzy-looking robots and “amazing” 3D effects. The premake was made by splicing together classic ...

What you are witnessing above is supposedly the new look of the upcoming live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. I’m not quite sure how I feel ...

Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter and Alice Come to Life Through LEGOs

While I’ve heard mixed reviews of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (as is typical with Burton films), there’s no denying the charm of these Alice in Wonderland-inspired mini LEGO sculptures. Including the Mad Hatter (played by a very Madonna-esque Johnny Depp in Burton’s outing) and Alice herself. I believe designer Tommy Williamson was going for a relatively minimalist theme, using as few ...

Movies That Don’t Exist (But Should)

While Hollywood chugs away at making a movie for every board game and sub-8-bit video game that ever existed (I’ve even heard titters of movies based on Pong and Monopoly), there are so many film opportunities out there that would actually make sense… or at least cause an extreme amount of LOLz. Take The Legend of Zelda for instance. That’s just prime ...

Saying Anything Apparently Still Works

Starring John Cusack as John Cusack in Say Anything… Again! But this time around, he’s got some new tools in his shed. For one thing, record stores are all obsolete. Wait, I think I’m confusing Say Anything with High Fidelity. Dammit, I hate when John Cusack movies start bleeding together. This trick isn’t for everybody, as you’ll have to figure ...

Say Hello To Mah Little Macbook!

First you get the money. Then you get the power. THEN you get the Apple products. Al Pacino might or might not have said those exact lines in the film Scarface. Maybe I used an oh-so slight piece of creative license. This Scarface Macbook decal turns your laptop into an even cooler, but slightly more suspicious, piece of hardware. No scales ...
