Nerdwriter On Pan’s Labyrinth

doug_jones_in_pans_labyrinth__2_

It’s time for some heady thoughts.  YouTube personality Nerdwriter took a look at Pan’s Labyrinth and saw it as a, in his words, disobedient fairy tale.

How does that work?  See his explanation after the cut, though as with all of his videos, the last thirty seconds are appeals for donations and joining his channel or the stuff that goes at the end of a lot of YouTube videos these days.

Gangsta Hobbits

The-hobbit-an-unexpected-journey

Let’s face it:  The Hobbit movies weren’t very good.

You know what might make them better?  How about some guns and a rap battle?

Well, maybe not, but the YouTube guys known as PistolShrimps edited the movies to add that sort of stuff.  Does it work?  You decide!  Some NSFW language in the video after the cut.

A Musical Interlude

"I can sing!"
“I can sing!”

Proving yet again that some people either have a lot of talent, too much time on their hands, or both, someone put together a video in which characters from 183 different movies sing Linkin Park’s “In the End”.

Enjoy it if you dare after the cut.

There’s a new year coming, and we all want to build a better world for ourselves in 2016.

But worldbuilding means something else in fiction.  YouTube brainiac Nerdwriter made a video on the dangers of worldbuilding, specifically in regards to Tolkien and other large scale fantasy worlds, and how it connects to the real world.  See it after the cut, though he ends with a request for pledges.  You’ve been warned.

Black Angel (1980) Finally Available To Watch Online!

blackangelThe story of Black Angel is an epic tale of an ancient treasure thought lost forever only to be found again and brought to the public.  It’s like the Indiana Jones of fantasy short films but without all the heart ripping out.

The movie, a 25 minute fantasy short, was attached to theatrical screenings of Empire Strikes Back back in 1980 but only in Australia, the UK, and Scandinavia.  After that brief theatrical run it disappeared forever.  The director lost his copy.  All hope seemed lost.  But you’ll find out the rest of the story and you can watch the whole film after the break!

The ORIGINAL Star Wars Parody!

Don't ask.
Don’t ask.

Thanks to YouTube and relatively cheap digital technology, Star Wars parodies are fairly old hat.  But what many don’t know is that Star Wars parodies are almost as old as the original movie itself.

In 1978, Hardware Wars was released.  It looks like it may have been filmed on a budget of, like, fifty bucks.  The spaceships were household appliances.  C-3PO was a guy in a Tin Woodsman outfit.  Chewbacca was a brown Cookie Monster.

Don’t believe me?  See it after the cut.
