The /Filmcast: After Dark is a recording of what happens right after The /Filmcast is over, when the kids have gone to bed and the guys feel free to speak whatever is on their minds.

Case in point, this trailer for a post-converted 3D re-release of Schindler’s List by The Awful People. Steven Spielberg doesn’t even release his old films on Blu-ray, let alone in 3D, so that makes this funny enough. But what makes it even better is that these guys find actual shots from the film that would look beautiful in 3D. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
