We’ve seen enough movies based on video games to know that they just don’t seem to work very well for some reason. Whether it’s too much fan service for those who played the games, or maybe video game stories are only fun when you’re the one in control of the main character, Hollywood just can’t crack them.
But before there were dozens of examples of this, Buena Vista Pictures took a swing and missed hard with Super Mario Bros., probably the worst video game movie ever made. Actually, it’s probably one of the worst movies ever made period. And now Honest Trailers has taken aim at the weird half-ass video game movie for your enjoyment.

Before Jurassic World even hit theaters, it was already getting spoofed online with a completely wacky edit of the trailer, complete with velociraptors riding motorcycles alongside Chris Pratt (don’t forget you can bid to win that motorcycle starting July 23rd).
And now that the sequel has been unleashed, it’s time for the entire preceding Jurassic Park trilogy to get a flashy makeover to be more in tune with Jurassic World. More specifically, everyone will now be wearing high heels. And I do mean everyone.

After premiering 38 years ago, it’s safe to say that Star Wars has penetrated pretty much every facet of pop culture.
Star Wars has been branded on nearly every kind of product, from towels to blankets to cups to toasters and much more. And while stereotypes would have you believe that Star Wars is just for nerds, there are plenty of athletes who just the sci-fi saga.
In fact, in the summer of 1979, the blockbuster hit from George Lucas was such a sensation that it inspired two wrestlers in Japan to dress as C-3PO and R2-D2 for an All Japan Pro Wrestling match. Yes, it’s just as strange as you would expect it to be.

Today, technology allows for some extremely astounding special effects. However, it wasn’t always so easy to produce fantastical elements, sci-fi creatures and plane crashes.
A new supercut has collected some of the worst special effects ever seen on the big screen, and they’re pretty embarrassing to look at. Some of them are bad simply because of when they were created and they just haven’t aged well over time. Meanwhile, others seem to be have been created with little to no budget whatsover.

We’re fresh off finishing yet another Comic-Con in San Diego, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t still exhausted from the whole ordeal. From waiting in lines, to the uncomfortable chairs in Hall H, to waiting in lines, the anxiety of getting into Hall H, also waiting in lines, plus all the energy spent on cheering and clapping in Hal H. It’s an endurance trial.
If you’ve never experienced Comic-Con for yourself, the folks at Nerdist have put together a lovely, funny, melodic little short called Comic-Con: The Musical, and it’s a pretty accurate representation of the geeky madness in San Diego.

Despite the combining of all sorts of geekiness at Comic-Con, there’s thankfully not a lot of confrontation amongst the fans of Star Wars and Star Trek, Marvel and DC or Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.
But comedian Chris Gethard decided he wanted to stir up some potential trouble by going around the Comic-Con show floor and asking fans to sign a petition to change the name of Washington DC to Washington Marvel. Why? Well, as Gethard succinctly puts it, DC sucks. And if you keep an eye out, you just might spot some dudes who look just like myself and Peter Sciretta, though you might not like what we have to say.

In case you didn’t know, in addition to all the geeks and nerds that have descended upon San Diego for Comic-Con this week, comedian Conan O’Brien is also here with his late night TBS talk show. It’s the first time a late night show has been recorded during the festivities, and Conan even has shows this weekend when the convention really gets busy.
Last night brought the first episode from San Diego, and with it came this fantastic cold open showing how Conan and his trusty comic sidekick Andy Richter made it to town. Hint: it’s a tribute to Mad Max: Fury Road, with Conan as the Doof Warrior with the flaming guitar and Richter as Immortan Joe. It’s just as awesome as you hope it will be.

We all know that Hugh Jackman can’t be Wolverine in the X-Men franchise forever, and we’ve heard that the Australian actor is done with the role that made him a star after he completes a starring turn in the third Wolverine film in 2017. But don’t worry, because he’s also slated to pop up in X-Men: Apocalypse and may have a cameo in Deadpool.
Still, someone has to pick up the claws and replace Jackman eventually. So as part of his stream of Comic-Con themed episodes this week, being shot in San Diego, Conan revealed some of the auditions to play Wolverine with names like Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex,) Hannibal Buress (Neighbors), Patton Oswalt (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and more in the running.

Marvel Studios may not have a panel at Comic-Con this week, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take time to look back at the film that has helped make the pop culture convention even bigger.
Iron Man was the first film to kick off the Marvel cinematic universe, the beginning of a lead-up to the assembly of The Avengers on the big screen for the first time ever. It still stands as one of the best films Marvel has made, but that doesn’t mean it’s immune to a skewering from the folks at Honest Trailers. They even take the time for a jab at The Incredible Hulk.
