2015 Movies in LEGO

We’ve already done plenty of looking back at the year in film that was 2015. We’ve featured a variety of retrospective trailer mash-ups. Plus, Angie Han, Jacob Hall, Jack Giroux and myself all counted down our favorite movies of the year. And now we’re looking forward to what’s coming in 2016. But it couldn’t hurt to take one more look back at last year, especially if it’s with a video that takes the biggest blockbusters of 2015 and recreates them all in LEGO form. Read More »

First Cut 2016

This whole week, the /Film crew has been running through their most anticipated films of 2016. Angie Han, Jacob Hall, Jack Giroux and yours truly all put together lists that included everything from blockbusters to musicals to hopeful Oscar contenders. But if that wasn’t enough to get you excited for all the cool movies we have coming this year, maybe First Cut 2016, a supercut put together from all the 2016 trailers we’ve seen so far, will do the trick.

VOTD: Sleepy Skunk’s 2015 Movie Trailer Mash-Up

“You may be done with the past, but the past isn’t done with you.” Another day, another look back at this year in cinema. Following the 2015 Salute to Cinema and Final Cut 2015, we’ve got yet another retrospective video looking back at a bunch of movies from this year, and this one comes from a familiar name.

Alternate Back to the Future Part II

Throughout the week of Back to the Future Day, there were tons of tribute videos, mash-ups, parodies and promotions happening to take advantage of the celebration of the fictional importance of October 21st, 2015. And even though we’ve had our last round of Back to the Future Bits to cover as much as we could regarding the important day in time travel history, this latest video was just too impressive to pass up.

One fan has updated Back to the Future Part II to take place in the real 2015. This isn’t like that satirical animated sketch that made fun of the real 2015 we live in now. Instead, this takes footage from the movie and updates it with a couple key 2015 details: Jurassic World and Donald Trump. And if you’re a Back to the Future Part II fan, you can guess where each of them come into play. Read More »

Trek Wars Trailer

Another day, another variation on the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’ve seen the original Star Wars trilogy presented like The Force Awakens, and someone else decided to cut footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with the score for the trailer. Now one more has just arrived, and I’m surprised it took this long.

Trek Wars is a mash-up of J.J. Abrams‘ rebooted Star Trek franchise and the director’s tackling of the Star Wars saga with The Force Awakens. And it’s edited in such a way that it makes it feel like the two iconic sci-fi properties are at war with each other. Check it out! Read More »

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

By now, you’ve probably seen both the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the most recent trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (though a new trailer for the latter is supposed to be coming soon). They’re both great teases for what will be two of the biggest films of 2015 and 2016 respectively. And they’re even more powerful when they join forces.

A new Batman v Superman Force Awakens trailer mash-up featuring footage from the DC Comics face-off set to the powerful music and selected voiceover of the sci-fi saga should please fans of all the franchises involved. Just let it in. Read More »

Star Wars

It’s been just one week since the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted online, and I’ve lost count of how many times that I’ve watched it. I’ve even taken the time to repeatedly listen to the version that isolates just the music from the trailer, which isn’t actually new music from John Williams, but repurposed versions of his original themes.

But if you’re somehow getting bored with The Force Awakens trailer, one fan has spiced things up by taking footage from the original Star Wars trilogy and cutting it to the music from The Force Awakens trailer. The result is a Star Wars trilogy trailer that has me excited to marathon of all of them again in December. Read More »

Angels in the Outfield

Clearly, there’s an angel with me right now. How else to explain that mere minutes after I professed my love for Angels in the Outfield right here on /Film, I came across a 30 for 30 episode about same?

Okay, so by “episode” I mean “College Humor parody.” But that doesn’t make 30 for 30: Angels in the Outfield any less magical. Watch the 30 for 30 Angels in the Outfield video after the jump.   Read More »

Jar Jar Binks The Force Awakens trailer

It’s almost unanimous among fans that the worst thing the Star Wars prequels have contributed to the canon of the galaxy far, far away is the character of Jar Jar Binks. The Gungan companion is a dumb cartoon, and it seems George Lucas really wanted to fuel the fire by having him be the senator who makes the motion to give emergency powers to Chancellor Palpatine, thus bringing about the creation of the clone army that helped spawn the Galactic Empire.

And now he’s back to ruin the final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer with a fanmade cut that inserts him all over the place, sometimes in a very impressive way. Watch the Jar Jar Binks The Force Awakens trailer below! Read More »
