Was the destruction of the Death Star an inside job? Find out in "Luke's Change: An Inside Job"! [video]

Image
When the Rebel Alliance blew up the Death Star in Star Wars - Episode IV: A New Hope, people all over the world cheered. But a new documentary may reveal that the events that were seen may have had a different spin to them that nobody saw.

Graham Putnam has created a hilarious satirical documentary (7 minutes long) that challenges the “official story” and points a few fingers that the destruction of the Death Star could have been an inside job thanks to a few family connections. "An examination of some questionable events and circumstances leading up to the destruction of the Death Star, through the eyes of an amateur investigative journalist within the Star Wars galaxy. The focus is mainly on the connections between the people who created and operated the Death Star and those responsible for destroying it. For those who don't care for the obvious, this is a satirical spoof of the 9/11 truther video Loose Change." Could this video reveal a truth that nobody knew? Does P…

Duck Tales Remastered video game trailer & sing-along! [video]

Image
If you played video games in the 80s then you most likely played Duck Tales and loved it. It is arguably one of the best games that came out on the original Nintendo. Controlling Scrooge McDuck and using his cane to bounce on the heads of his enemies was all kinds of fun. Now, 24 years later, the game is returning with a fully remastered edition! That's right! This NES classic will be remastered and it will have a lot of updated elements. Watch the trailer, and sing-a-long, below and read about all the updated elements below!

Raphael is cast in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie!

Image
Paramount has just released the casting for the first Ninja Turtle in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle film that is being directed by Jonathan Liebesman. 28 year old actor, Alan Ritchson, will be stepping into the role of Raphael!

Fans may recognize Ritchson from his role on Smallville as Aquaman and his upcoming role as "Gloss, the deadly dagger-wielding male tribute from District One in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

Since this is a live action/CGI film the Turtles are being shot using motion capture similar to how Avatar was shot. So although Ritchson will be doing all the movements for Raphael, it'll be his voice that we really "see" in the movie.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to be released on May 16, 2014.

Film student, Kristjan Lyngmo, created this great horror movie parody titled "Saturday the 14th" that features "Mason" and the everyday activities that he does after this big day on Friday the 13th.

Enjoy!

Forging He-Man's sword from Masters of the Universe! [video]

Image
If you are a fan of He-Man and Master of the Universe then you are aware that his sword, the Power Sword, was used to conquer all that stood in his way. Well master swordsmith, Tony Swatton, has created a great video of him forging the Power Sword from live steel. Watching this sword be made, and then used, made me smile. "Every week our master swordsmith and renowned propmaster, Tony Swatton, forges iconic weapons using high-speed belt grinders, scorching furnaces, and pounding power hammers. Then he takes his weapon to the streets to bust up some stuff." How cool!

Breathtaking Tomb Raider painting is the perfect picture of survival!

Image
Artist, Omri Koresh, has painted a stunning piece that features Lara Croft from the new rebooted Tomb Raider game! Koresh has titled the painting "I Am a Survivor." The amount of detail that he has put into this painting is unbelievable and it really shows you the idea behind "survival" that is at the forefront of this new game. Lara herself stands confident with a look of determination in her eyes that will make anyone or anything think twice about attacking her. "i saw already all the gameplay and everything i could get my hands on but what i loved most was the scene when her leg is trapped in a bear trap and she has to shoot huge wolfs that jump on her from a bush. i thought that specifically that scene showed the concept of surviving well. i took my interpretation from it, the colors, light, the wolfs but in my style- as realistic as possible and with tons of details!" What do you think of this amazing painting?

Dora the Explorer and the Destiny Medallion - Part 1! [video]

Alright, Dora fans, it's finally here! College Humor has posted Part 1 of their live action web series Dora the Explorer and the Destiny Medallion! Part 1 is just over two minutes long and is quite funny! However, given the short length I can tell that this web series will be best when watched all together in one shot. (That's if the other parts are just as short.) All the same this was very funny and definitely worth checking out. Ariel Winter as Dora does a brilliant job and nails the delivery of the character. I can't wait to see how she does as the action picks up in Parts 2 and 3. Enjoy Part 1!

Dora the Explorer and the Destiny Medallion Part 2 will be out on March 26!

Prop Wars - fandoms will clash in an all out battle! [video]

Image
The guys from Sneaky Zebra have created a new video that is truly a lot of fun to watch! Fans will certainly have memorabilia from their fandoms around the house and at times some of these are going to be weapons. Now it would be cool if these weapons actually worked (though some may; swords, ect), but wouldn't it be cooler to have an all out battle with your best friends using them all? Of course it would!! And that's exactly what Sneaky Zebra have done. This video pits all those awesome props that are laying around against each other in one epic fight scene. "The Sneaky Zebra boys are back with another argument that could only be settled one way. Epic Prop War battle! There is a Sneaky Zebra hidden in the video - did you find it?" How many different fandoms can you spot in this video? For bonus points, can you name each prop used?
