Video: The brutal amputations in Star Wars done by lightsabers

Lightsabers are dangerous as hell. If I had access to one in this here real life, I’d be legless, armless, headless, and torsoless in less than 5 minutes. Not even kidding. Even people who know how to use lightsabers get their body parts laser chopped off. Check out this compilation of all the amputations in Star Wars »Tuesday 10:46am11/24/15 10:46am


10 movies that used the same exact set as other movies

Hollywood recycles plots and story lines all the time. The same actors and actresses and directors are put in movies over and over. And the same sets are used to film completely different movies. It’s an incestuous industry. Sometimes when you’re watching a movie and you can’t quite put your finger down on why a scene… »Tuesday 9:24am11/24/15 9:24am

Brutally honest trailer of Star Wars shows how we ignore its obvious flaws

Star Wars is impeccable. It is so embedded in pop culture and ingrained in nostalgia and just so much damn fun that there is no way to not like that movie, even if there are totally obvious flaws like Luke being just as annoying as Anakin, Stormtroopers being clumsy idiots, the use of cheesy props and so on. And of… »11/18/15 11:08am11/18/15 11:08am

10 movies that are surprisingly based on a true story

Some movies—like biopics and such, let’s say—are obviously based on a true story. These 10 movies are a little different in that it’s not immediately obvious that they’re based in real life because the plot was either so silly (Jack Black being a priest turned wrestler Nacho Libre) or because the movie was just too… »11/17/15 10:24am11/17/15 10:24am

Video: What movies thought the future would look like

It’s always fun to look back at movies set in the future and see what their vision of the future was. Even though it’s more a reflection of the time period the movie was made and their imagination is limited to what was around them, it’s cool to see what was right and what was totally off. Robert Jones made this… »11/10/15 5:50pm11/10/15 5:50pm

Back to the Future II expertly edited to show the real 2015

We all know this by now: the 2015 in Back to the Future II didn’t happen in real life. We failed. But! We can totally make things right by changing the past, as in re-editing Back to the Future II to include things that actually happened in the year 2015. It actually works out quite well, as PistolShrimps shows,… »11/09/15 9:21pm11/09/15 9:21pm

Here are 10 deleted Star Wars scenes that you probably never saw before

Some of these scenes were rightfully axed. Like Luke and Leia about to share a creepy intimate kiss before C-3P0 saves the day by interrupting them. Other scenes should have never been cut. Like the scene showing the Emperor demanding that the second Death Star be fired up to blow up the moon that Han and Leia were… »11/04/15 10:15am11/04/15 10:15am

Here are 6 movies that blatantly re-used footage from other movies

This is a fun one. Screen Rant came up with a list of movies that shows how films have recycled and reused scenes from other movies. This isn’t an act of homage or done in inspiration, this is footage taken from one movie (sometimes shot for shot!) and used again in another movie and hoping that no one would notice.… »11/03/15 1:51pm11/03/15 1:51pm

Popular movie posters get animated with the actual scene from the movie

There’s a whole lot of fun in this project by Pablo Fernandez Eyre: famous movie posters turn into moving pictures with the help of the actual scene from the movie itself.

The side-by-side visual similarities of Breaking Bad and Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction basically influences anything that’s good. And Breaking Bad drew influence from a lot of good things before it. But I never realized how similar they were when I was watching and obsessing over Breaking Bad because when you put some scenes side-by-side, you will see shots that clearly pay tribute to the… »10/21/15 6:31pm10/21/15 6:31pm

Fantastically edited video combines Hitchcock and Kubrick films into one world (NSFW)

Two masters of film get mashed up in what has to be the trippiest way possible.

How many people has Darth Vader killed in the Star War movies?

Darth Vader is the ultimate villain, the personification of evil, and the baddest of bad guys. But how much of a killer is he? Surprisingly, not that much as Darth Vader. He’s only responsible for less than a dozen kills as Darth Vader but he definitely racks up the kills as moody teen Anakin though. Check out the… »10/19/15 6:42pm10/19/15 6:42pm

10 more really fun movie mistakes that made it into the final version of the movie

People screw up. And in movies, you’d expect that when someone screws up that those scenes would just be played for laughs as outtakes or on a blooper reel. But sometimes everything else about the scene is so good and the screw up is so unexpectedly perfect for the movie that the directors include the screw up in the… »10/12/15 2:55pm10/12/15 2:55pm
