Since we’re obsessed with all things cinema, we love stumbling across a good video essay that takes a closer look at a good movie. There’s no better way to examine a movie than in a medium that allows us to actually see clips from the movie being discussed as they’re being explained. But some movies have been examined so thoroughly that there doesn’t seem to be much else to discover.
One of those movies seemed to be The Dark Knight, which has been poked and prodded to death all over the internet. But the folks at Clickhole have just blown our minds by peeling away even more layers in Christopher Nolan‘s superhero sequel. The movie is still packed with hidden secrets and insane trivia you might have missed the first time through. The Clickhole Dark Knight video essay will change the way you watch the movie forever.

It’s been a while since we got one of those “Hi, I’m a Marvel… and I’m a DC” videos, but creator ItsJustSomeRandomGuy hasn’t lost his touch, as evidenced by his latest video.
He’s got a lot to work with in the new installment, with both mega-franchises preparing to square off at the box office next year — Marvel with Captain America: Civil War, DC with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And in between all the sniping, he even manages to get in a solid Fantastic Four dig. Watch it after the jump. Read More »
With the release of Ant-Man earlier this month, we’re officially done with releases from Marvel Studios for 2015. Despite the trouble behind the scenes before the film started shooting, with Peyton Reed replacing Edgar Wright as director, it actually turned out to be a pretty decent comic book flick.
But one fan thinks that movie could have been infinitely better if famed documentarian and Jack Reacher villain Werner Herzog was behind the camera instead. Patrick H. Willems, the man behind Wes Anderson’s Uncanny X-Men, has put together a trailer showing us what it might be like if Herzog directed Ant-Man, and things definitely get existential.

Not too long ago, we featured an amusing sketch from Saturday Night Live featuring Chris Pratt doing an impression of Jason Statham selling Steakums. It was a cut sketch from when Pratt hosted, and while it was worth a laugh here and there, it was easy to see why it didn’t make the live episode.
Now another sketch that was cut for time has surfaced from when Oscar nominee Michael Keaton returned to Studio 8H as host of SNL for the first time in 23 years. In the sketch, Keaton plays the host of a show not unlike Blue’s Clues, but when he gets some bad news, we learn some pretty weird and twisted things about his TV show.

There’s a chance you might remember when we called attention to an installment of Epic Rap Battles of History because it featured Steven Spielberg and Alfred Hitchcock going head to head in a face-off of crushing rhymes about film. It’s as amusing as it is surreal of a concept to even think about.
And now Epic Rap Battles is back with two more entertainment icons. This time is Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, the creator of X-Men, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and more, battling Jim Henson, the genius behind the fuzzy Muppets that adults and kids alike enjoy so much. However, this particular rap battle isn’t like the rest you may have seen, because a third party enters the ring to shake things up. Watch the Stan Lee and Jim Henson Epic Rap Battle below!

This weekend brings the release of 20th Century Fox’s latest attempt to bring Fantastic Four to the big screen, and the early buzz on the comic book reboot from director Josh Trank is pretty positive so far. We’ll see if that holds up when more people see the movie this weekend.
In the meantime, it appears the studio is already looking forward to the future by changing up the superpowered quartet by adding a fifth person. Nerdist founder, comedian and Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick recently auditioned for a role in Fantastic Five, and franchise stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell were there to oversee his tryout. How did it go? Watch the Chris Hardwick Fantastic Four audition after the jump to find out. Read More »

Kyle Chandler currently stars in Bloodline on Neflix, but his best-loved character will probably always be Coach Eric Taylor from Friday Night Lights. Recently, he reprised that signature role to draw attention to a very important issue: jerks who talk and text during movies.

In typical Judd Apatow fashion, Trainwreck runs a bit long, thanks in part to its lengthy improvised riffs. But even at 125 minutes, Trainwreck had to leave a few bits of comedy gold on the cutting room floor. So Universal has released some of the best unused lines in a hilarious Trainwreck outtakes video. Watch it after the jump.

Unfortunately, in the winter of 1997, we lost comedy star Chris Farley. The Saturday Night Live veteran was overcome by fame and glory, letting drugs and alcohol rule a life that brought laughter and joy to millions. We’ll never know just how much more comedy Farley could have brought to the masses in future film and television projects.
Thankfully though, Farley is still able to bring us a good laugh from the footage that we already have of the actor hamming it up in films like Tommy Boy and Black Sheep. And friend of the site Todd Spence decided to use Farley’s signature comedies to lighten up this weekend’s latest blockbuster, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.
Chris Farley takes the role of Tom Cruise with footage of the actor intercut with the trailer for the action sequel to humorous effect. It’s amusing throughout, but it’s the payoff at the end that makes it all worth it. See Chris Farley in Mission Impossible after the jump! Read More »
