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…
You’ve got to love that 8-bit sound. Blips and bloops and beeps magically merge together to create choppy, nostalgic melodies that remind us how far we’ve come since the first personal computers. But how did those big beige boxes actually make music?
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.
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.
I didn't watch that new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie with Megan Fox because I was pretty sure it was going to suck. Anytime adult me makes an informed decision like that, I imagine childhood version of me shaking his head in disappointment and howling in sadness. Growing up is lame.
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.
Being better than a Matrix sequel is not saying much, I know. But after recently re-watching the whole trilogy (and enjoying it!), it's still nuts how much better the first one was. The action sequences in the sequels may have been more insane but this 8-bit game version of The Matrix brings back more fond memories…
Obviously, it's not quite as stylized and sexy as the original Sin City but this 8-bit video game version by CineFix does a great job in mimicking the original by adding the perfect dab of color to accentuate the shadowy world of the graphic novel. The whole thing plays out like a comic strip.
Like most people with eyeballs, I've scrubbed the memory of The Matrix sequels from the creases of my brain. That's why I had so much fun when I watched this scene from The Matrix Reloaded. Oh and hearing 8-bit sounds instead of real noises makes it way more enjoyable. It's an action comedy movie now!
Even just watching this video of a fake video game version of Se7en by CineFix made me feel sick to my stomach. Even if all the terror was in 8-bit, it was torture to see the detectives chase down their serial killer. Especially since we all know what's going to happen at the end.
I don't know which Avengers character I would love playing the most in this game. Would it be Iron Man so I get to use his crazy ass suit? Thor, for his long locks and hammer? Captain America's super shield? Ah, who am I kidding, it'd definitely be The Hulk.
I'm ready to pay my $2.99 for this Kill Bill game, which looks like a Kung-Fu Master/Shinobi hybrid. Heck, I would pay $2.99 for Volume 1 and $2.99 for Volume 2. Too bad we can't: It's just one of those videos for imaginary 8-bit retro arcade games by those cockteases at Cinefix. Bastards. Watch, want, and welp.
