The time traveling adventure Back to the Future is fun for the whole family, the kind of sci-fi film that studios don’t really make anymore. It’s not overtly made for adults, but it’s not exactly geared towards kids either. It hits a sweet spot right in the middle, and that’s part of what makes it so perfect and timeless (no pun intended).
But what if Robert Zemeckis made an R-rated Back to the Future? YouTube user Andrew Robertson imagines what the film would have been like if it were R-rated, specifically because of vulgar language. After all, Marty McFly is a teenager, and he should be dropping more f-bombs. That’s exactly what happens in Back to the F*ckin Future. Read More »

Earlier this week we highlighted a video called Star Wars Poetry, which took a look at the visual symmetry between the original Star Wars trilogy and the more recent prequel trilogy. When comparing the two sets of films, some striking similarities in shot composition arose, showing that George Lucas wasn’t completely off his rocker for the prequels.
Now the same creator of that video, Pablo Fernandez, has done the same thing with another trademark George Lucas creation: Indiana Jones. This time the video compares Indiana Jones visual symmetry from the original trilogy of adventure films to the frequently panned, outcast sequel Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, all directed by Steven Spielberg.

Thanks to the twisted mind of the recently passed horror icon Wes Craven, we’ll forever have Freddy Krueger to haunt our nightmares. And while one of the Nightmare on Elm Street films finally decided to have Freddy’s victims go out of their way to fight back in their dreams, only one dream expert has the power to stop him once and for all: Leonardo DiCaprio.
More specifically, it’s Leonardo DiCaprio as Cobb, the character from Christopher Nolan’s dreamscape action thriller Inception. A trailer mash-up entitled Inception on Elm Street makes Cobb the dream gatekeeper that Freddy Krueger has to get by first before he came leap from our dreams into the real world. It makes for a rather intriguing concept. Read More »
This week brings a new M. Night Shyamalan film to theaters with the horror flick The Visit, following two children visiting their grandparents only to find them acting uncharacteristically peculiar and potentially dangerous, thereby scaring any kids from staying at Nana and Pop-Pop’s house ever again.
Hopefully this is a return to form for Shyamalan, and in case you need a reminder of how bad things can get when he misses the mark, take a look at The Happening Honest Trailer. Even if you were still on board the Shyamalan wagon after The Village and Lady in the Water came out, there’s no doubt that The Happening gave everyone dysentery. Read More »
In the months leading up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there’s been some renewed bashing of the prequels, mostly because they feel so far removed from the original trilogy. From the visual effects to the storytelling, there’s just something about the prequels that feels off.
However, by using clips from the original trilogy and the prequels compared to each other and played simultaneously, a new video called Star Wars Poetry shows how the prequels share more similarities with the original trilogy than you might think. Specifically, between the two trilogies, visual symmetry becomes apparent and even impressive. Read More »

Here at SlashFilm, one of the films we’re looking forward to the most before the end of 2015 is The Martian, the adaptation of Andy Weir’s book of the same name, directed by Alien and Gladiator helmer Ridley Scott. If you haven’t seen the trailer, you can watch it right here. Or simply know that the film follows an astronaut (Matt Damon), who is left behind on Mars and is forced to figure out how to survive for four years until his crew can return to rescue him.
Some clever editor has taken footage from Pixar’s sci-fi adventure WALL-E and cut it with the voiceover from the most recent trailer for The Martian, resulting in a survival story that is just as intense as it is adorable. Watch The Martian WALL-E trailer mash-up below! Read More »
If you’re a lover of animation, then one of the places you’re likely dying to visit is Pixar Animation Studios. Unlike most major production companies, Pixar is nowhere near what people regard as Hollywood. Instead, the Pixar campus is situated far north, in Emeryville, California. And today you can get an idea of what it’s like to be on Pixar’s big, fun campus.
Over the weekend, Disney fan Keith Lapinig had the opportunity to take a private tour of Pixar’s campus, and thankfully, he brought a camera with him so that those of us who aren’t lucky enough to be there can still check it out. So if you’ve got 15 extra minutes, watch the Pixar Animation tour video below! Read More »
There’s a good chance no one has ever thought that they’d like to see a movie that intersects the worlds of films such as Star Wars, Scarface, John Wick, Collateral, Terminator, Trainspotting, Saturday Night Fever and more. But that’s exactly what Antonio Maria Da Silva has done with a wholly strange, mesmerizing and fantastic cleverly edited short compiled by using clips from all these movies.
We’ve featured supercuts and trailer remixes before, but this Hell’s Club mash-up is something completely different. We don’t want to give anything away, but Da Silva sets up the video by saying, “There is a place or fictional characters meet. Outside of time, outside of all logic, this place is known as Hell’s Club. Just watch it and be mesmerized. Read More »
