La La Land 8-Bit Cinema

This coming weekend, the 89th Academy Awards will be held, and the acclaimed La La Land is expected to take home a bunch of Oscars just like it has the rest of the awards season. As more and more have seen the throwback musical romance, the film has become easier to lampoon for audiences who previously didn’t have a chance to see it. So it should come as no surprise that this week there have been plenty of parody videos capitalizing on the film’s buzz and popularity heading into the Academy Awards.

After the jump, you’ll find a trusty La La Land 8-Bit Cinema, a Muppet mash-up that replaces Ryan Gosling with Kermit the Frog, and a recut of the film’s trailer to make it look like a thriller from David Lynch. Read More »

Stranger Things 8-Bit Cinema

Even though the buzz surrounding Stranger Things has died down since its debut on Netflix in July, there will undoubtedly be a resurgence whenever the second season hits the streaming service sometime in 2017. Since the show is set in the 1980s, it’s the perfect candidate to get the 8-Bit Cinema treatment, even if it’s not a movie.

Mad Max Fury Road 8-Bit

It’s become a rite of¬†passage for any movie that ends up beloved (or hated) by the internet to get the 8-Bit Cinema treatment. And if there’s one movie that’s worthy of this video game adaptation, it’s Mad Max: Fury Road.

Talk about a movie that was made for the side-scrolling arcade game style. This Mad Max Fury Road 8-bit creation from Cinefix is one of their best creations, if only because it includes the button-smashing directions needed for certain parts of the game. It also brings the best vehicles from the movie into the simple video game world. Watch! Read More »

Ferris Bueller's Day Off 8-Bit Cinema

While the John Hughes comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off may be a classic, it’s hardly worthy of getting a video game adaptation. However, that hasn’t stopped the folks at CineFix from giving the comedy starring Matthew Broderick the 8-Bit Cinema treatment, turning the high school hooky shenanigans into an old school video game.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off 8-Bit Cinema hits all the right notes, literally, because there’s some awesome 8-bit soundtrack versions of the songs from the movie. Oh, and the very short, abridged versions of entire scenes are pretty amusing. Read More »

8-Bit Cinema District 9

Back in 2009, the sci-fi drama District 9 made an impression on audiences, launching the career of director Neill Blomkamp with a film that was a surprising but wholly deserved nominee for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. It was an original story, with incredible special effects, and it was nice to see a worthy sci-fi tale get the acclaim it deserves.

Sadly, Blomkamp has yet to reach that level of greatness with his follow-up films Elysium and Chappie, both feeling rather derivative and hollow when compared to the substance of his debut film. But instead of lamenting this fact, let’s look at the 8-Bit Cinema District 9 creation that debuted earlier this month. Read More »
