Meet 'The Uncanny X-Men'
Have you ever wondered what the X-Men movie would look like had it been directed by Wes Anderson? Yeah, me neither … even still, filmmaker Patrick H. Willems answers the question with the short parody film embedded above. Anyone familiar with Wes Anderson‘s style of filmmaking will likely find this video humorous. I enjoyed about the first 2 minutes of this video before I got bored (which isn’t really good for a 4 1/2 minute short film) but it’s a clever attempt to retell the X-Men story in such a way that might make Wes Anderson proud. Have a look above, see if you can scrounge up a few LULz.
MGM Studios is not pleased
Remember all of the back and forth that ensued after producer Adi Shankar and director Joseph Kahn released their fan film based on the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers that ultimately got resolved to everyone’s satisfaction? Well, Shankar released a second fan film, this time based on characters from the James Bond movie franchise. The animated short film, James Bond: In Service of Nothing, was online for a while but MGM Studios filed a copyright complaint and got the video yanked offline … even tho the fan film was made entirely of original content. Here we go again. Unfortunately, the video is no longer online for your viewing pleasure but you can click below to learn a bit about the short fan film while we wait for it to eventually get put back online. More »
"My apologies are on the level of Jesus"
Earlier this week, Kanye West publicly and formally apologized to Beck and Bruno Mars on Twitter for being an a-hole toward them in real life. Last night, Kanye West (brilliantly played by SNL castmember Jay Pharaoh) make an appearance on Saturday Night Live to offer more apologies. Pharaoh as Kanye delivered a rap performance that is just too good not to see. If you thought Kanye‘s real life apologies were good (or, you know, if you thought they sucked) then you MUST watch the video below of Jay Pharaoh‘s Kanye apologies to see how it’s really done. You will LOVE. More »
I Am A Claus
An industrious comedy troupe called Local Business Comedy have turned Kanye West‘s album Yeezus into a brilliant Xmas album titled Kreezus. The songs on Yeezus have been adapted and changed into Xmas songs with titles like I Am A Claus, New Sleighs, I’m In It (The Chimney) and more. I’m not sure from whence came this amazing bolt of creative inspiration but as far as Xmas gifts go, this one is a pretty sweet one. Click below to hear Kreezus in full. More »
If only ...
An industrious fan compiled footage from various movies, TV shows and video games to put together an impressive video trailer for an imagined movie that would pit the superheroes from the Marvel Comics universe against the superheroes from the DC Comics universe in an epic battle royale that will likely NEVER actually take place on the big screen. This parody movie trailer is over 3 minutes long and it is packed with numerous Marvel and DC heroes facing off in various configurations. It’s a neat as Hell video that you simply have to watch. Please enjoy.

Also starring Rihanna, obviously
So now you have one more reason to go see the new Annie movie, which I’ve heard is really fun—plus Quvenzhané Wallis earned herself a Golden Globe nomination. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have reunited on-screen again, which makes this fake movie trailer some sort of bizarre, That 70s Show/Twilight crossover. Seriously, you have to see this to believe it. The new parents are the stars of the upcoming movie (just kidding, it’s not upcoming) MoonQuake Lake, and this parody trailer is so ridiculous, I love it. Click inside for more!
I mean … everyone else put out a parody video for Star Wars: The Force Awakens so why not Saturday Night Live? Honestly, it’s a pretty funny clip, which is rare for SNL. Enjoy.
Thus far, we have seen the official teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and the Internet has given us both a LEGO version of the teaser and an imagined George Lucas version of the teaser. Today, we get to see what the teaser trailer might look like had it been directed by Wes Anderson. Since the LEGO version came out, there have been a plethora of similar (yet subpar) parody videos … but this Wes Anderson one is so perfect that I had to share it. Thank you Internet, for this here gift.
