The internet's really cool sometimes, guys. This is one of those sometimes.
Above we have a lost video from the nether years of the late '90s — 1998, specifically, which is a full (uses Macbook calculator) 15 years ago — featuring the now uber-famous Zach Galifianakis and the now pretty damn-famous Ken Jeong (whose movie, "The Hangover Part III," comes out next weekend) doing some standup comedy together at a coffee house in Los Angeles. It's a fun watch, especially considering the rapport these two obviously already had a full decade before they would star together in "The Hangover."Get More »
Have you ever watched a "Fast and Furious" movie (any of the previous five qualify, including "Tokyo Drift," we guess) and thought, "Man, this is good, but I kind of wish there was less action. Less fights, less explosions, less street races. Actually, you know what would be great? If this was directed by Sofia Coppola." Of course you have. Who hasn't? Get More »

The ratio of people screaming "NOOOOO!!!!!!" in movies to people screaming "NOOOOO!!!!!" in real life is extremely high. In a 2005 study, scientists from Harvard University concluded that this number was roughly 12.7 to 1,* though each scientist individually claimed that he or she had never met anyone who screamed no for more than the quarter-second it takes to say the word normally.** Get More »
As you may know, there have been 1,784 different movie versions of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic American novel, "The Great Gatsby," give or take about 1,778 or 1,779. The above is a mashup of two of them, specifically Jack Clayton's 1974 version and Baz Luhrmann's 3D version which debuted in theaters just this past Friday.
Specifically, the bored video editor who made this and put it on the internet in his (or her) spare time took the music from the 2013 trailer and put it over the 1974 trailer, which would have undoubtedly freaked out Clayton and anyone working on the movie at that time. ("What on earth is a 'Jay-Z'? Is it a pastry of some sort?") Get More »
Have you ever noticed that Disney movies, for being Disney movies, are actually pretty violent? And not just in a lighthearted way, either; for every "Mickey playfully smashes a friend with the lower part of his fist on the top of his head," there's a "The Beast is brutally shot in the spine with a bow and arrow." Ow.
I'll tell you who noticed it, if you didn't: a bored video editor, that's who. And as a result, we have a fun 85 second supercut of all the incidences of violence in every Disney movie, embedded at the top for your sick, masochistic enjoyment. Get More »
One of the most ubiquitous aspects of every 30 second trailer for "The Great Gatsby" is the brief clip of Leonardo DiCaprio (as Gatsby himself) savagely screaming in the face of Nick Carraway (fellow "Pussy Posse" member Tobey Maguire). We as viewers of the preview don't know what he's yelling about, but that's ok, because we all understand that this is what Mr. DiCaprio does in all of his movies. The words "inside voice" mean nothing to the guy. Get More »
It's been the week of "Iron Man" (well, "Iron Man 3," specifically), and for proof, you need look no further than its $175 million opening weekend at the domestic box office. For those not in the know, $175 million is, um, a lot of money. It did well, so to speak.
Feeling the "Iron Man" mojo running through the veins of the populace himself, editor/talented person/talented person with too much time on his hands Mike Helm constructed an insanely well-done supercut remix of all three "Iron Man" movies to the tune of Black Sabbath's "Crazy Train." Get More »
Here's a video that, if anything, will make you realize just how often Hugh Jackman is forced to make the "I'm menacingly extracting my claws!" movement with his arms during production of every "X-Men" or "Wolverine" movie (in which the "give character large adamantium claws" button on Final Cut is used liberally in post).
That's because our good, clever buddies at FilmDrunk took the new "The Wolverine" trailer and replaced every "SHAWINNNGGG" (copyright "Wayne's World," 1992) sound that is made every time Wolverine's claws come out... with the sound of a slide whistle. And to be completely honest, we can't say it's any better or worse than before, it's just more noticeable. And hilarious. Get More »
