The Matrix Trilogy summarized in less than 3 minutes

Red pill or blue pill. This TL;DW 2.5 minute summary of The Matrix Trilogy hilariously compares those opposing views on how to interpret The Matrix and nails the important parts of The Matrix 2 and 3: the Oracle does things, the KFC guy shows up with TVs and there is a crazy DragonBall Z fight scene. » 10/15/14 7:55pm Wednesday 7:55pm

A bouncing basketball connects 24 different movies in this absurd video

I'm not entirely sure at what point I stopped thinking this video was incredibly stupid and started thinking it was incredibly hilarious but I think it was probably after The Big Lebowski got a hold of the basektball. And once it hits space thanks to Shaolin Soccer and Anchorman, I pretty much couldn't stop giggling. » 10/14/14 9:31pm Tuesday 9:31pm

The biggest sign that humanity has no chance of survival? That we're all sheep with baa-d taste? That we should blast ourselves out of this planet and let dolphins take over as the dominant species?

9 things you maybe didn't know about The Lion King

If you don't count Pixar movies (and I don't), the best Disney movie as far as I'm concerned is The Lion King. It's not even close. But even though I've seen it so many times, there are many more fun facts that I had no idea about: like how Mufasa's roar was made from a bear, a tiger and a F-16.

Iconic movie posters missing the people and words are still iconic

We all had movie posters on our walls in college. Mine was for the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles—no, I'm not ashamed—and when I close my eyes, I can still picture it. That incredible effect that makes a movie poster iconic is exactly what makes Film the Blanks so interesting. » 10/06/14 10:31pm 10/06/14 10:31pm

How a movie sex scene actually looks on the set (mildly NSFW)

As you could imagine, all those sex scenes that look so hot on the big screen are actually quite awkward while filming.
