Superman Flyby
In 2002 Warner Bros was developing a new Superman movie with then screenwriter JJ Abrams called Superman: Flyby, with Brett Ratner hired to direct. Abrams’ screenplay for the film would have reinvented Superman, incorporating a bunch of new ideas that angered fans when a negative script review was posted on the internet. The film was abandoned and never went into production. Mr. Sunday Movies has created a video essay giving the complete history of Superman Flyby. Watch that now after the jump.

everything wrong with Armageddon

The guys at CinemaSins have returned with a new Everything Wrong With… video essay. This time the video takes a look at Michael Bay‘s 1998 feature film Armageddon. Some people seem to hate these videos, but it seems like few can resist from clicking through and hitting the play button. I’m sure we’ll see fewer complaints in the comments this time, with a 14-minute video making fun of a Michael Bay movie.

That said, I love so much about this movie, and Bay’s earlier efforts when he had a producer that was powerful enough to say “no” every once in a while. Watch Everything Wrong With Armageddon, embedded after the jump.

Superman ice bucket challenge

Okay, so as I said yesterday, we usually try to focus on entertainment news and avoid celebrity stories, but the Star Wars Episode 7 cast and crew taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge felt entertainment news-worthy enough to feature on the site. I honestly thought that was the last of those videos we’d feature on /Film but now the comic book superheroes are taking the challenge in full costume: Henry Cavill and Amy Adams both took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on the set of Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in their film costumes. I’m going to call it the Superman Ice Bucket Challenge.

Thats right, Cavill is wearing his complete Man of Steel Superman suit and Adams is dressed as reporter Lois Lane. We absolutely needed to share this video in case you missed it. And one Ice Bucket Challenge is nothing for Superman, so they give our favorite alien superhero something extra. Watch the Superman ice bucket challenge video embedded after the jump now.

Star Wars Oculus Rift Game

It seems all of the video gamers I know are very excited for the Oculus Rift virtual reality helmet gaming system. Sixense has released a video demo showing their new wireless motion system called STEM System that works with the Oculus Rift Developer Kit 2. The new demo shows a Star Wars oculus rift lightsaber game. Of course, the demo was not created officially by LucasFilm, but is only a demo devised to show off the new technology. But the demo video shows us what a Star Wars Oculus Rift game might look like, and considering big companies like Facebook and Sony (Project Morpheus) are developing virtual reality gaming experiences, its something we should expect to see for real someday. So hit the jump and check out a demo of what a Star Wars Oculus Rift game might look like.

Robin Williams Emmys tribute

The 2014 Emmy Awards were full of emotional moments for TV makers and their fans alike, but the part that had everyone blinking back tears was when Billy Crystal took the stage to honor his departed friend Robin Williams.

“He made us laugh. Hard,” Crystal began. He then launched into a somber reflection on what made Williams “the brightest star in a comedy galaxy,” sharing a couple of funny anecdotes along the way. Watch Crystal’s full Robin Williams Emmys tribute after the jump.

VOTD: Spencer Susser’s Eugene Short Film

Spencer Susser's Eugene

In 2008, I discovered a great short film titled I Love Sarah Jane by commercial and music video director Spencer Susser (you can watch it here — and if you haven’t yet, you really need to). I was slightly disappointed by Susser’s feature directorial debut Hesher, which premiered at the 2010 Sundnace Film Festival. Since the festival, Susser has been trying to get a feature length version of I Love Sarah Jane into production and has also returned to his short film roots. One of Spencer Susser‘s latest short films is titled Eugene, a comedy about a lonely man (played by Michael Govier) who checks into a hotel and is mysteriously delivered an intriguing gift. What happens when he gets seduced by too much power? Watch Spencer Susser’s Eugene now embedded after the jump.

Star Wars ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Videos

We haven’t really featured many of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos on the site because we try to cover entertainment news and rumors but not celebrity. And I’m sure you’ve seen enough of these ice bucket challenge videos in your social timeline already. The Ice Bucket Challenge has raised nearly $80 million for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord) which is amazing. I personally have not done the challenge but have instead donated to the ALS association, and I highly recommend you do the same (and if you have time, learn a bit about the disease). Recently the Star Wars galaxy has been called upon to take the Ice Bucket challenge, which has seen responses from Harrison Ford, Mark Hammil, Peter Mayhew, new Star Wars Episode VII castmembers Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, Star Wars Episode 7director JJ Abrams, as well as future Star Wars series filmmaker Gareth Edwards, and more. Other members of the crew have yet to respond to the challenge. Watch all of the Star Wars ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos embedded after the jump.

Parks and Recreation - Season 5

Just because something is fun to watch doesn’t mean it was fun to make, as gossip rags are all too happy to tell you. But there’s something about NBC’s Parks and Recreation that makes us think this cast might actually be as delightful on set as they are on screen. Now, the Parks and Recreation Season 6 gag reel confirms those suspicions.

In the ten-minute video, Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Chris Pratt, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza and more take turns messing up, teasing each other, and just generally look like they’re having a good time. Plus, you get to see Ann and Chris again, and even Lil’ Sebastian stops by for an appearance. Watch the Parks and Recreation Season 6 gag reel after the jump.
