This is what happens when you give McDonald's to organic food "experts"

"What happens when you serve McDonald's food to some experts and pretend it's a new organic meal?" ask Sacha and Cedrique. To answer this question they went to a organic food fair in Houten, Netherlands, armed with disguised McNuggets and Big Macs. You can imagine what happens—or just watch their video: » 10/22/14 1:36pm Today 1:36pm

I really want this sci-fi short film to be made into a full movie

Into Dusk is a sci-fi short film about a terminal patient—Ellie—and her lover—Wren—who is broke, desperate to save her life—and has a gun. Jason Ho filmed it to attract investors to make a full feature. I would watch a film that explores how a normal drama could develop in a future world with different rules. » 10/22/14 12:11pm Today 12:11pm

These photos are so incredibly perfect that I can't believe they're real

This image is so impossibly flawless in every aspect that is hard to believe it is real. Technique, composition, subject matter—it's like a perfect dream, but it's an actual photo of Svolvaer, Norway, by extremely talented Max Rive. His other work is equally perfect and stunning to the point of disbelief. » 10/22/14 10:54am Today 10:54am

Honest trailer reveals how X-Men: Days of Future Past is Terminator 2

X-Men: Days of Future Past is basically Terminator 2 with mutants. Screen Junkies explains the plot similarities: "An indestructible bad ass gets sent back into time without his clothes to protect a vulnerable young man with long hair who will one day become a leader and stop a shape shifter from destroying the… » 10/21/14 11:02pm Yesterday 11:02pm

Brand new trailer for the re-release of 2001: A Space Odyssey is perfect

I mean, holy crap, I think this is the best movie trailer I've ever seen. Which, duh, makes sense since 2001: A Space Odyssey is a masterpiece and probably the best sci-fi movie ever but this new trailer, made to promote its theatrical re-release on November 28th in the UK is absolute perfection. » 10/21/14 9:23pm Yesterday 9:23pm

Genius app instantly solves math problems by using a phone's camera

I've seen the future and it is math less and it is awesome and it is this PhotoMath app that solves math problems just by pointing your phone's camera at them. It's like a cross between a text reading camera, a supremely sophisticated calculator and well, the future. Point and solve and never do math again. » 10/21/14 8:49pm Yesterday 8:49pm

Short film: Giant rock creature teaches a funny life lesson

I think this silly animation about a giant rock creature trying to rescue a town is a hilariously dark lesson that shows how some things just aren't worth saving. Or that maybe all our work is useless. Or perhaps that bad intentions can cause good actions. Or whatever, maybe it's just a really fun CG animation. » 10/21/14 7:41pm Yesterday 7:41pm

Portraits of abandoned dogs before being put down at a shelter

Taiwanese photographer Yun-Fei Tou created these portraits of abandoned dogs minutes before being euthanized to "arouse people's awareness of animals rights." What really fucks me up is to look into their eyes knowing they didn't know what was coming up next. A stark reminder of our responsibility towards these beings. » 10/21/14 4:49pm Yesterday 4:49pm

This ad is entirely made of famous song lines

I love this ad for the Helsinki-based radio station Radio Aalto. Not only it's cool—the actors are the actual hosts of one of their shows—and well produced, but also it has an insightful and fun concept: Who hasn't used a famous song line in an informal conversation? Well, this ad is entirely made with them. » 10/21/14 9:34am Yesterday 9:34am

CGI footage of people falling and not getting up makes me laugh so hard

I must be a horrible person because I howled so hard when I saw this CGI footage by Dave Fothergill that shows computer generated people falling down over and over again as they get swept around by a swinging metal fence. Don't get me wrong, I'm rooting for these clumsy CGI folk to make it through but I'm laughing at… » 10/21/14 12:58am Yesterday 12:58am
