Take 160 Logitech gaming keyboards with illuminated keys. Assemble them into a wall. Add a sprinkling of extra electronics and code. And, voila, you have a giant 8-bit display.
CineFix’s 8-bit movie series are always good but this one on the original Star Wars trilogy is especially awesome because for each movie, the graphics get a little bit better as if they were progressing from like the original Nintendo to Super Nintendo. It’s also great because I’d watch this entire trilogy in 8-bit…
Oh my god. Since Mad Max: Fury Road was essentially just a linear car chase scene that went in one direction and then turned around and went back in the other direction, can you imagine how perfect a side scrolling video game it would make? Add all the crazy vehicles and the weapons and Furiosa and it would be the…
District 9 certainly has some video game-like elements to it, and this short video that adapts the film as an 8-bit video game is just perfect. Someone make this happen, because we would play the hell out of it.
One of the particularly fun trends we’ve seen popping up around the internet is the 8-bit makeover, where an artist takes a popular TV or movie and reimagines it as a retro video game. The only problem is that now we’re sad these aren’t real games.
Jurassic World is coming out this weekend and just by existing, it’s already better than The Lost World and *whispers* Jurassic Park 3. But there is no way in hell that it can ever top the original Jurassic Park. Hell, I know this 8-bit video game version of Jurassic Park is better than all the movies that followed it…
It shouldn’t come as a surprise as The Shawshank Redemption is one of the all-time great movies but this 8-bit version of the film captures a little bit of that same spirit and is fun to watch too. I guess Andy and Red’s friendship translates into any medium, even if it’s animated in a retro video game style.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier smartly buoyed what could have been a pretty bland character with other fun ones which all added up to a really fun movie. One of Marvel’s best, probably. Here it is summed up in 8-bit video game style, which Captain America looks great in.
I don’t know what I want to do more, watch the new Star Wars movie or play this awesome 16-bit retro video game version of the new Star Wars movie. Actually, that’s a lie. I still want to watch the movie more. But there’s a kid in me that would love this video game so much if it ever existed.
I'll never watch Titanic again because I don't have a time machine that could send me back to the 90's as a teenage girl. But! I would love to play this silly 8-bit video game of Titanic. It sums up all the happenings in the movie pretty well and is perfectly silly: you play cards, you draw Rose naked, you escape a…
The Fast & Furious movies today are fun, blood pumping action movies with a few car scenes spliced in. But the original movie that kicked it all off, The Fast and The Furious, was pretty much all about cars. This 8-bit racing game version sums the movie up pretty well. I would have loved to play this game as a kid.
CineFix is back with more 8-bit zombie deaths of The Walking Dead, this time focusing on season 3 and 4 (aka when the show left the farm and actually turned semi-decent for a little bit), and they sum up the story quite nicely. Zombies die, people die, a prison is taken over and Rick's gang fights a tank and a crazy…
CineFix animated the first two seasons of The Walking Dead in the classic 8-bit video game style and somehow, the blood, guts, gore and zombies of the TV show still translate over. It's a pretty decent summary of Rick and the gang's journey and how many damn walkers they needed to kill.
The best video games you can play are those that let you act like a complete maniac while surrounded by party girls and mountains of drugs and just shoot a lot of people. Basically, the best video game you can play is just playing the plot of Scarface over and over again. CineFix shows its latest 8-bit creation below.
Here's CineFix's latest creation: The 2014 blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy in 8-bit. Though this video game version doesn't have the charm of Chris Pratt or versatility of Vin Diesel's dialogue, it does have the nostalgia of old video games which matches up nicely with the throwback fun in the movie.
We already know that The Life Aquatic is amazing as its own movie and spectacular when re-done in the style of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.Turns out, it's also fun when you turn Wes Anderson's flick into an 8-bit video game like CineFix did in this animation too.
Even if he looks like a retro video game player, I can still feel my spine shivering when Hannibal Lecter comes onto screen. That's what happens when you're one of the all time creepiest, scariest characters in film history. Here is CineFix's 8-bit version of Silence of the Lambs.
What might be even cooler than seeing this 8-bit game version of Frozen is hearing 8-bit sounds beep and butcher all the songs that made Frozen so damn popular in the first place. Watch CineFix pull their 8-bit take on Frozen below.
