Going by Pixar’s timeline, we’ve got about 800 years until WALL-E is a reality. Thanks to California resident Mike Senna, we’re a tad ahead of schedule. Senna spent the last two years building a life size, working WALL-E that has to be seen to be believed. Since actual materials, decals and parts from WALL-E don’t exist, he was forced to build the entire thing from scratch and the results would likely make everyone from John Lasseter to Andrew Stanton proud.

Is there anything cooler than a robot? Seriously. Put a robot in a movie and you’re half way to glory. From Metropolis and Star Wars, to RoboCop and Short Circuit all the way up to 2013′s Pacific Rim, robots in movie are a tried and true geek staple. Unfortunately, the reality of robotics is far less exciting. Robots are either small and simple or big and complicated. The middle range, humanistic robot founds in those movies don’t quite exist and if they do, they’re less fun and more practical.
That’s changing, though, thanks to a recent reveal at a festival in Tokyo. There, a company called Suidobashi Heavy Industries revealed their own rideable, hydraulic 13 foot, 4-ton fighting robot called Kuratas. Kuratas is expensive (over $1 million a piece) and bulky but he runs off an iPhone and has a gatling gun for maximum carnage. Check out some video and images after the jump. Read More »
Be it movies, music, painting or something else, the best art inspires action in the people who view it. Sometimes that inspiration can lead you to change your life, or maybe simply inspires more art. Daniel Kanemoto is a huge Evil Dead fan and when he saw Olly Moss‘ 2010 Mondo poster for Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead, he was so inspired by the image he decided to do a little animation showing his love of the franchise. The result is now online: a 90 second ride through the three films with a Moss finale. Check it out below. Read More »

Nathan Drake, the star of the Uncharted games, is the video game Indiana Jones. He’s charming, he’s a bad-ass and he travels the world getting into ancient-themed adventures. In video game form, the Uncharted world was built to be cinematic and that’s why Hollywood has been trying to make a live action movie for a long time.
Unfortunately, that has yet to take place. But now anyone who wants to see these games as movies can do just that. Reddit user morphinapg edited the cinematic cut scenes from the PlayStation 3 games Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception each into their own individual movies clocking in at about two hours, three hours and three hours plus respectively. That’s an eight hour Uncharted trilogy that you can watch right now. Read More »
There’s a special place in geekdom for fans who have the patience and skill to make Lego versions of their favorite movies. When a fan makes a real life version of a motorcycle or a working lightsaber, that’s obviously cool and impressive. But doing something similar in Lego feels so much more difficult. Most of the time there are no blueprints, no instructions, just your memory of the movie, knowledge of what Lego components are available and then the ability to not only find them all, but make them look exactly like what they’re doubling. It’s remarkable.
And this set might be the best one yet.
After the jump, check out a bunch of images of Lego renditions of scenes and ships from Stanley Kubrick‘s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Read More »
While fans patiently wait for Edgar Wright to get back behind the camera after Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, the filmmaker has been busy getting into a new medium: comic books. But not paper and ink comic books, Wright has written an online motion comic that he and his co-creators are urging the fans to help them finish. It’s called The Random Adventures of Brandon Generator and it follows a writer whose lack of creativity has driven him to a very dark and lonely place. Then, one day, he passes out and wakes up with a bunch of ideas he doesn’t remember coming up with.
The first episode is now online and, after you watch it, the comic turns into an interactive flash game where you can give Brandon ideas and influence the next chapter of his story. Read more after the jump. Read More »
