CineFix’s latest edition of 8-bit cinema takes on Guardians of the Galaxy. The animated short film retells the movie via old-school 8-bit game tech. While the title is 8-Bit, the graphics look more like the 16-bit generation of video games to me (pushes glasses up like a nerd).
8-bit Cinema “gamifies” your favorite Hollywood Blockbusters into 80’s arcade and NES inspired action! Today we present Guardians of the Galaxy in the form of an old-school video game. Don’t you wish Guardians of the Galaxy was popular back in the early 90s, so that YOU could have played this game as a kid? Us too! 8 Bit a.k.a. the third generation of gaming started in 1983 with the Japanese release of the Nintendo Family Computer and Sega. Can you guess what games inspired our 8-bit version of Guardians of the Galaxy?
This adorable animated short retells the action set pieces from the film showcasing various side-scrolling levels. The short also features 8-bit versions of the movie’s awesome 80’s soundtrack. Watch the 8-Bit Guardians Of The Galaxy animated short film embedded after the jump.

We’re already familiar with the ins and outs of the Awesome Mix Vol. 1, thanks to our many repeat viewings of Guardians of the Galaxy. Now here’s the Awesome REmix Vol. 1 from music producer Mike Relm.
As with Godzilla and Iron Man, Relm took music, dialogue, and footage from Guardians of the Galaxy, chopped it up into little tiny pieces, and laid it back out into something fresh. The clangs and thuds of a fight scene turn into a beat; Rocket Raccoon’s “oh yeah” becomes a chorus of sorts. Watch the Mike Relm Guardians of the Galaxy remix after the jump. Read More »
Time and time again, you’ve heard that 2014 was a great year for movies. And it was. But as I looked back at the about 150 films I saw released in 2014, I saw a pattern. There were, in fact, lots of great movies in 2014, and in the next few pages you’ll read about a bunch of them. But I honestly feel like when I picked my favorites, the films I felt were the best released this year, they all were on an even playing field. In a way, I could’ve just given you the ten best movies I’ve seen this year in alphabetical order and called it a day. But where’s the fun in that? The fun part is sitting down and making the hard decisions about what is truly the best. So, below, read my top ten movies of 2014.

This week we look at the Top 10 trailers of 2014.

In box office terms, 2014 wasn’t a huge year for film. But in creative terms, it’s hard to fault this year’s crop. It contained at least one once-in-a-lifetime masterpiece, not to mention one of the greatest horror movies in years, several big-budget franchise-builders that soared way past expectations, and some completely out-of-nowhere gems.
As the year winds to a close, I’ve taken a moment to look back at some highlights. As usual, this shouldn’t be considered an objective list of the year’s best film, but an entirely subjective list of favorites. Run down my top 10 films of 2014 with me after the jump.
