Steven Soderbergh made Raiders of the Lost Ark into a rad silent film

It's hard to say what my favorite thing about Steven Soderbergh's new remix of Raiders of Ark is. Is it the total lack of dialogue? Or maybe it's the vivid black-and-white rendering that makes you forget the film's supposed to be in color. Actually, honestly, it's the sick 8-bit soundtrack. That's it. » 9/23/14 2:55pm 9/23/14 2:55pm

Driving in Los Angeles somehow looks awesome in this time lapse

I hate driving, I really do. I especially hate driving in Los Angeles. And even though I know it's impossible and unreal for me to ever feel this cool driving (unless I turn into Ryan Gosling), this time lapse by Gavin Heffernan makes me want to get in my car and drive through Los Angeles forever. » 9/20/14 12:44am 9/20/14 12:44am

For a second, you think hey maybe the motorcycle has a chance in this Top Gear bit since it screams to a lead but then the land-based jet machine insanity known as an F1 race car steps it up and the other two are fighting not to get lapped by the closest thing we have to a teleportation device on Earth. » 9/11/14 10:42pm 9/11/14 10:42pm

All the close-up shots used in all Edgar Wright's movies

Though we know funny movie maestro Edgar Wright uses a ginormous arsenal of visual tools and tricks when he's directing a movie, one of his trademarks is his use of close up shots. They're quick, they're snappy and they're so fun to see on the screen. James R. Lloret stitched all of them together in this fun supercut. » 8/29/14 1:18am 8/29/14 1:18am

Watching a gecko's pupils contract and dilate is weirdly satisfying

Most animals contract and dilate their pupils depending on the light available around them. Geckos are no exception but unlike other species the difference between those two stages are much more dramatic. They go from having cute round pupils in low light to evil narrow slits when it's too bright. » 8/11/14 12:39pm 8/11/14 12:39pm
