How Avengers: Age of Ultron Should Have Ended - Part 1!

Image
It's here! How It Should Have Ended has finally released their video for Avengers: Age of Ultron and it is going to be in multiple parts! The first part is really funny and focuses on how Ultron uploaded himself to the internet and all the things that he could have done to defeat the Avengers while in it.
"That's right, Part One! Because we wrote too much material for this one, we decided to make multiple shorts rather than chop down and cram what we enjoyed into short 15 second bits. Avengers seemed fitting to try it out. Part 2 and Maaaaybe 3 will follow as they are completed."  I especially enjoyed the ending that has Ultron talking to various villains from some of the best TV and film franchises. Enjoy!

Check out this amazing promotional video for Jurassic World that shows off a corporate video from InGen Technologies, the company that runs the park Jurassic World.
"InGen is all about tomorrow's technology, today. Ever since its founder Dr. John Parker Hammond dreamed up the idea to access prehistoric life from preserved DNA in fossilized amber, InGen's headquarters in San Diego, CA have been busy at work collecting the world's most comprehensive genomic library. Their work paved the way for the first prehistoric animal to be brought back to life in 1984 and since then have learned valuable lessons about control and environmental issues which have helped shape the company into what it is today. The acquisition of InGen by Masrani in 1998 hasn't changed the scientific focus placed on the company, and CEO Simon Masrani has looked to experienced geneticist Dr. Henry Wu to guide the company ever since - with results often exceeding expectations for investors.

Doctor Who's Steven Moffat reveals that he is still haunted by guilt over changing the Time War's outcome.

Image
When Doctor Who returned in 2005 showrunner Russell T. Davies introduced fans to the Time War. This war spanned space as well as across time and was faught between the Time Lords and the Daleks for "all of creation". The result of this war was both races seemingly being destroyed and wiped out. The Time War quickly became a popular subject with fans because it defined who the new Doctor was. (The then 9th Doctor played by Christopher Eccleston and then 10th Doctor David Tennant. Even Matt Smith's 11th Doctor was influenced by the Time War.)

However, during the show's 50th Anniversary special "The Day of the Doctor" showrunner Steven Moffat reversed the outcome of the Time War and thus upset many fans who were very big fans of the Time War and what it brought to the story of the show. While being interviewed for Doctor Who Magazine #487, Moffat revealed his guilt about making the decision to do change the Time War.

Funny Lego Star Wars: Return of the Jedi video has Luke's family reunion interrupted by the Ghostbusters.

Image
In the Star Wars films, Luke Skywalker's mentors who had passed away were able to return as "ghosts" using the Force. Ghosts normally have a bad reputation and when they appear you call in experts to get rid of them. This time however, the experts come on their own and interrupt a reunion between Luke and his family and friends. But then sometimes reunions are what you'd hope they are.

Enjoy!

Man at Arms: Reforged creates Aragorn's sword Narsil / Anduril from The Lord of the Rings!

Image
A new episode of Man At Arms: Reforged has been released and this one is really fun! The folks over at Baltimore Knife and Sword worked hard to create the sword Narsil from The Lord of the Rings and they did so using only 19th Century techniques which was really interesting and fun to watch. However, Sauron comes by to smash Narsil to pieces (to show what happens when you do not temper a blade after heat treating it). This lets the forges reforge the shards of Narsil into the sword Anduril just like in the book and film. A lot of work went into forging this sword and the result is beautiful. You can watch the entire creation process in the video below. Enjoy!
