We can accept that Transformers: Age of Extinction is no good and at the same time take pleasure in watching Michael Bay direct his cast and crew as they perform elaborately choreographed antics for his camera. In a new ten-minute video, Bay explains how he shot a number of different sequences in the latest Transformers film, and the techniques are all over the map. But this Michael Bay behind the scenes video makes one thing clear: its often small stuff that really sells a scene.
For example: One sequence uses a car suspended on cables and a soft foam tire that hits an actor in the face, but the important details are glasses flying off the stunt man’s face, and him spitting out a mouthful of goop to sell the force of the blow. Check out the video below. Read More »

During periods of his career, Martin Scorsese has enjoyed working with one lead actor over and over again. In the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties, that actor was Robert De Niro. In the last two decades, it was Leonardo DiCaprio. However, the three have never worked together on a feature film. That’s the gag in a series of commercials for two casinos in Manila, Philippines.
Scorsese directed the commercials, which star DiCaprio and De Niro as themselves, competing for a same role. However, these are not just commercials. These are basically trailers for a short film called The Audition that will also bring Brad Pitt into the mix. Yes, it’s a Martin Scorsese directed short starring DiCaprio, De Niro and Pitt. And rumor has it, each actor made over $10 million for the work. Check out the Martin Scorsese Leonardo DiCaprio Robert De Niro commercials below. Read More »
Of the innumerable questions raised by the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren’s lightsaber was right at the top. Fans were wowed by the visual power of the saber, which has a cross guard made of the same plasma as the primary blade, but immediately began questioning its functionality. Wouldn’t it cut off the user’s hands? Well, everyone up to and including Stephen Colbert came out to discuss the issue and most realized that it would be fine in the hands of a skilled swordsman.
Now, a new video has come to our attention that takes that proof a step further. A YouTube user named ThegnThrand created a mock version of the lightsaber, dipped the cross guard in paint, and did a full demonstration to prove not only is Kylo Ren safe with the lightsaber in hand, he has several advantages because of the additions. Check out the Episode 7 lightsaber video below. Read More »

Inherent Vice is a big movie with a lot of moving parts. Even though it cuts out a lot of material from the novel by Thomas Pynchon, the film still has a wealth of characters with odd names, many of whom are given pretty breezy introductions. But a set of Inherent Vice character posters and brief video introductions for many of the major characters might help you sort people out ahead of time.
The downside is that these video intros give up a few of the film’s good jokes (but not all of them by any means). The upside is that these videos feature a bunch of footage that isn’t in the film, not that most people will have a chance to know which is which until after this Friday. Read More »
