Nathan Drake, the star of the Uncharted games, is the video game Indiana Jones. He’s charming, he’s a bad-ass and he travels the world getting into ancient-themed adventures. In video game form, the Uncharted world was built to be cinematic and that’s why Hollywood has been trying to make a live action movie for a long time.
Unfortunately, that has yet to take place. But now anyone who wants to see these games as movies can do just that. Reddit user morphinapg edited the cinematic cut scenes from the PlayStation 3 games Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception each into their own individual movies clocking in at about two hours, three hours and three hours plus respectively. That’s an eight hour Uncharted trilogy that you can watch right now. Read More »

Disney is a prolific company with its name on a great many successes, and it likes to hide its missteps and failures. The process of doing so sometimes helps those mistakes become things of legend. Song of the South, with its politically incorrect and racist portrayals of certain characters, is likely the most famous example. Another example might be The Sweatbox, a very rarely-seen documentary about the failed making of an animated film called Kingdom of the Sun, which eventually morphed into The Emperor’s New Groove. (Pictured above.)
The Sweatbox filmmakers John-Paul Davidson and Trudie Styler were given unprecedented access to Disney’s process and the resulting film painted the executives in such a negative light, they more or less made sure the film would never been seen in public.
Until now. For a little while at least. After the jump, you can watch the rarely seen 2002 documentary The Sweatbox. Read More »

If you love films, especially geek, genre films, then Steven Spielberg and George Lucas‘ introduction of Harrison Ford‘s Indiana Jones character is either right near, or the absolute epitome of, what this little art form we call “film” can do.
