This short film would be fun if it weren't so close to real life

The creators of this Shelved—director James Cunningham and eleven visual effects students at the Media Design School in Auckland, New Zealand—say their short film a homage to movies like Clerks, Mallrats, Slacker, and Dazed and Confused. After watching these two robotic losers in action, I can see why. » 10/10/14 9:01pm 10/10/14 9:01pm

Spectacular Swedish Marines ad mocks US military recruitment ads

You have to give it to those Swedes: Behind those chiseled marble faces with platinum blonde hair and cold steel blue eyes there's a great, almost British sense of humor that takes the piss out of everything. This Swedish marines commercial mocking Hollywood-style US military recruitment ads is a good example. » 10/10/14 7:22pm 10/10/14 7:22pm

Daredevils climb a skyscraper in Hong Kong to hijack a billboard

Hong Kong is one of those crazy future cities in the world where buildings kiss the sky and people are stacked on top of people and streets hide alleys which hide labyrinths which hide awesome. It's great. It's also great for climbing to the top of a skyscraper to hijack a billboard. These guys proved that. » 10/08/14 10:20pm 10/08/14 10:20pm

Short film: A stick figure drawing destroys the computer that drew it

What happens when the crude artwork you draw in Photoshop becomes sentient and gains superpowers and starts darting across your desktop screen with weapons? A whole lot of desktop destruction. Even worse, the stick figure will draw goons to help them ruin your computer forever. But it'll be fun to see. » 10/02/14 8:41pm 10/02/14 8:41pm

Naturally, the funniest lightbulb ad ever stars Jeff fucking Goldblum

Kudos to General Electric for hiring actor Jeff Goldblum and directors Tim and Eric to make this hilarious commercial to promote their new LED lightbulbs. I'm a fan of Philips' LEDs but, after this, I will be checking GE again. Because I'm that easy to convince and it's Jeff fucking Goldblum, ok? » 9/30/14 9:39pm 9/30/14 9:39pm

This is probably the most fun you can have jumping on a seesaw

I think we should re-visit the playgrounds of our childhood to see how much fun we can have now. Because if it's anything like these guys from the Streaks Show, it looks like it'll be an insane amount of fun. I mean, they used a seesaw to basically jump flip out of the world of physics and gravity and momentum. » 9/30/14 8:58pm 9/30/14 8:58pm

The trailer for Inherent Vice is the zaniest thing I've seen this year

PT Anderson's new movie Inherent Vice looks like it's going to be oodles of fun to watch. The first official trailer is absolutely fantastic and also, absolutely wall the off, shitbat zany. There is so much weird and so much hilariousness and so much awesome that I can't wait to watch it in theaters. » 9/29/14 8:55pm 9/29/14 8:55pm

The world would be a much better place if God were this little girl

If the entity known as "God" is not a figment of our collective imagination—product of our desire to find solace from the nonsense that is life—he actually did a pretty horrible job. Maybe things would have been a lot different if he left everything to the little girl in this short animated film. » 9/26/14 11:06pm 9/26/14 11:06pm

Short film: A zombie apocalypse might actually be pretty fun

TV shows like The Walking Dead make the zombie apocalypse look like a soul evaporating place because the characters enjoy making dumb decisions. Zombie movies like 28 Days Later make it look terrifying because of the constant state of panic. But what if the zombie apocalypse was actually... fun? » 9/25/14 12:35am 9/25/14 12:35am
