Update: The Lego Oscar is now open to votes at the Lego Ideas site. Click here to learn more and support the cause. Original story follows.
It’s a rare honor to receive a little gold man at the Academy Awards. It’s an even rarer one to receive a little gold man made out of Lego bricks. Think about it: Whereas thousands of Oscars have been handed out over the decades, including several dozen just last night, maybe a few dozen Lego Oscars have ever been given out at the ceremony, all of them last night.
But if you weren’t one of the lucky few to pick up a Lego Oscar last night, don’t worry — you can always make your own. A video shows how the Lego Oscars came together. Check it out after the jump. Read More »

Game of Thrones the show is all gloom and doom. If you’re unlucky, you’re poisoned or stabbed or head-exploded to death. If you’re really unlucky, you’re suffering a torment worse than death itself. And even if you are kinda lucky, all it means is that you can look forward to getting poisoned or stabbed or head-exploded to death on a different day.
Game of Thrones the set, however, is a different story. As a new blooper reel reveals, the actors are having a much better time than the characters they’re portraying, whether they’re giggling over flubbed lines or dealing with an unruly cat.

If you’ve seen enough vampire shows and movies — and there are always plenty to choose from — you’ve probably noticed that they feature some conflicting mythology. Do these creatures of the night sparkle when exposed into sunlight, or burst into flames? Can they control your mind, or just read it? Fortunately, the real vampires of What We Do in the Shadows are here to set the record straight.
In a new Funny or Die video, Viago (Taika Waititi) and Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) lay out 7 vampire truths. Along the way, they dispel stereotypes (they don’t all wear capes… except the ones that do) and reveal personal tastes. (Evanescence is big with bloodsuckers, apparently.) Watch the What We Do in the Shadows vampire rules after the jump. Read More »

I was cautiously optimistic about Dumb and Dumber To. The Farrelly Brothers were due for a hit; they were revisiting the characters that made them famous; and both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were back for the ride. What could possibly go wrong?
The answer is “everything,” as is very well explained in the Dumb and Dumber To Honest Trailer. In this video, the film is rightfully annihilated for being pointlessly gross, uncomfortably mean, and just plain unfunny. Thankfully, in doing so, the Honest Trailer is actually pretty great.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Last week’s biggest news, and frankly the biggest news of 2015 so far, was that Spider-Man is coming back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ll see him in at least one Marvel movie (probably Captain America: Civil War) before a 2017 Sony reboot that ties in to the MCU. All week fans were debating what this meant for superhero movies, who should play the role, and what it might look like.
That last question has now kind of been answered thanks to ScreenCrush. They took footage from Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and carefully edited it with The Avengers. The result is a glimpse of what The Avengers might have looked like if Spider-Man was involved. Watch the Spider-Man Avengers below. Read More »
Severus Snape is one of the most fascinating characters in the world of Harry Potter. From book to book, more than any other character, you love him, you hate him, you fear him, you’re confused by him, and author J.K. Rowling waits until the last half of the final book to finally reveal what was actually happening the whole time.
The movies mimic this structure, too, albeit with fewer details. Thankfully, the nuanced performance of Alan Rickman over the course of eight movies adds so many layers, it’s just as rewarding in its own way as the character in the novel.
For proof of that, a YouTube user has re-edited Rickman’s performance to tell Snape’s story in chronological order. Check out the Severus Snape story below. Read More »

One of the biggest complaints we hear about Richard Linklater‘s Boyhood is that it doesn’t have a story. There’s no real strong narrative. If made this script in 12 weeks instead of 12 years, it would be terrible. Maybe all of that is true. But the movie was made over 12 years. It’s not a movie about the story. It’s a slice of life, a film whose form is saying as much, if not more, than the narrative. Either you buy into that or you don’t and that’s probably the line between people who think Boyhood is a masterpiece, or a piece of something else.
The Honest Trailer team seems to fall into that latter camp. There’s some appreciation in their Boyhood Honest Trailer but, mostly, it’s judging the film for something it isn’t. Nevertheless, they’ve made a pretty funny parody of the song Hero by Family of the Year that makes the Boyhood Honest Trailer worth watching. Check it out below. Read More »
