The always meta and funny mobile game The Simpsons: Tapped Out recently teased that at least 50% of The Simpsons‘ audience tunes out after seeing the couch gag. I don’t think that’s actually true most of the time, but it might be this week as the biggest animated TV show of all time parodies the biggest animated film of all time: Frozen. The holiday episode will air on Sunday December 7 and is called I Won’t Be Home For Christmas. You can wait to see it then, or watch The Simpsons Frozen parody below. Read More »

It’s that time again: the year-end movie montages are here. In the next six weeks we’ll probably see quite a few examples of people cutting together reels of their favorite film footage from the past twelve months, but two early entries in the 2014 movies supercut race are already available. One is a great edit of footage from 25 of the year’s best films, while the other is a long cut that samples from a couple hundred movie trailers. Read More »
The Internet had two major points of contention with the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. One was horribly racist and the other was incredibly nit picky. The nit picky one is about the new Sith lightsaber seen in the trailer. Many people are complaining that the construction simply doesn’t make sense. That the small sections pointing out of the hilt wouldn’t serve any positive purpose. And who knows? Maybe they’re right. The fact is, the movie doesn’t come out for a year so that may even be a plot point in the film.
Either way, Stephen Colbert has had enough. He explained why the new lightsaber would work, and is awesome, on Monday’s episode of The Colbert Report. The host also revealed he’s been a Star Wars fan longer than anyone. Below, watch the Stephen Colbert Star Wars video and see a few of the memes that the new lightsaber has spawned. Read More »
Lego, George Lucas and lens flairs were only the beginning. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer has only been out for three full days and already the parodies and reactions are impossible to keep up with. As you read this, someone is creating something new – and likely funny – about the trailer. Case in point, multiple new parodies have hit the web. There’s one poking fun at the fact it’s the first Disney film, two taking The Phantom Menace and retrofitting it to this style, a Spaceballs version as well as The Empire Strikes Back. Watch a bunch of new Force Awakens trailer parodies below. Read More »

The most talked-about new release this Thanksgiving weekend wasn’t an actual movie, but a teaser for one. The 88-second Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer kept fans busy for days, as they picked it apart frame by frame and argued over its general merits.
Among the many who watched the trailer on repeat this weekend were longtime Star Wars fan Kevin Smith, who has now weighed in with his opinion. In typical Kevin Smith style, his video reaction takes him down memory lane and off into amusing tangents. Watch the Kevin Smith Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer reaction after the jump.

If you’re like me, you’ve watched the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer several dozen times and will continue to do so until the next one comes out. By now, you may know every second of the trailer just as well as the original trilogy and you’d be open to seeing something new. Like clockwork, the Internet obliges.
Several different parodies of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer have appeared online but two stand out above the rest. First is a super impressive shot by shot recreation in Lego. Second is J.J. Abrams lens flare edition. And third is a “George Lucas Special Edition” version that, much like the first trailer, brought tears to my eyes. This time though it wasn’t nostalgia, it was because I was laughing so hard. Read More »
Most would probably rank the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron a 10 of 10 on the awesome scale. Well this video ranks the same on the adorable scale.
The YouTube channel The Fine Bros. recruited a bunch of kids to sit down and watch the trailer totally cold. They had no idea what they were about to see. Their reactions are priceless, from excitement to horror to complete and utter lack of giving a crap. Check out the video below. Read More »

Outdoor movie screenings are so much fun. They’re not usually the ideal place to first see a movie, of course, but as a communal experience, where everyone knows the movie, it’s the best. Secret Cinema, however, is so much more than an outdoor screening series. It’s an outdoor screening coupled with a live performance and theme park experience where you not only watch the movie, you can live it.
Don’t know what we mean? A new video showing this past summer’s Back to the Future Secret Cinema event puts it into perspective. The organization not only rebuilt the town of Hill Valley; they have actors walking around, a beautiful big screening, and people performing the movie, under the movie, while you watch the movie. Check out a video of the greatest Back to the Future screening of all time below. Read More »
