Is this possibly the biggest, most epic mashup ever? Watch and judge for yourself. YouTube's Dondrapersayswhat spent three months putting together a version of Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" that is sung by 280 movies. You read that number right. 280 movies coming together to perform a song that has the lyric: "smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy." And it's amazing. Personally, our favorite part is the Spaceballs-Tropic Thunder combo of "too hot, hot damn" followed closely by the dance breaks courtesy of Back to the Future, Airplane! and Napoleon Dynamite. The Internet can be a wonderful place sometimes, if we forget that crap like this happens on it. However, we did not like »
"Spaceballs," "Pulp Fiction," "Back to the Future," "The Breakfast Club," "The Muppet Movie" and about 275 more movies have combined together for one noble cause. Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" is obviously a runaway hit of 2015, and now somebody (probably your new best friend) has combined dialogue from dozens and dozens of movies to "remake" the funky hit, supercut style. According to the info on YouTube, user dondrapersaywhat spent three months cobbling this together. Watch! Or "Watch!" »

Australian motorbike rider Robbie Maddison has a dream … actually a pipe dream ... of riding his awesome customized wave running dirt bike through the iconic waves of Tahiti.

We’ve seen a few of these before, but there’s something really awesome about this one. A Youtuber has complied together clips from 280 movies and cut them together to sing Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars. This has perhaps the best use of Christopher Walken in Pulp Fiction in any song, ever. There’s also some great uses of Napeleon Dynamite dancing and Marty McFly playing guitar in Back to the Future. Sadly, they decided to use that guitar solo rather than the one from Howard The Duck…

Pretty cool, right?

Fantastic comedy sequels are pretty rare, and if history shows anything, it’s that the longer a comedy sequel takes to hit the screen, the more audiences tend to not care. “Gremlins 2” came six years after the original and mostly flopped, “Back To The Future II” was only four years later, but it failed to recreate the same box office magic, and most recently, “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” belatedly greeted audiences almost ten years after the fact and failed to gross much more than $125 million domestically. In fact, its so-so box office receipts made us assume that the plans for a “Zoolander” sequel were immediately squashed by Paramount, the same studio. But Ben Stiller and company persevered, and “Zoolander 2” arrives in the winter of 2016.

Crispin Glover has a rough history with Back to the Future. While he will live forever in the memory of a certain generation simply for playing the role of George McFly in the original film, his ongoing issues with making the movie is a story that lives in infamy. Turns out he’s still angry about the whole thing. Really Angry. In an interview with The Guardian, Glover doesn’t hold anything back when talking about problems he had with the movie and writer/producer Bob Gale: Me asking the questions that I asked [about the film’s ending] infuriated [the film-makers], and they were angry and they wanted to do something that was cruel, which they accomplished. Bob Gale then specifically lied, and said false things about me. Glover is so angry about the situation that he is apparently writing a book about propaganda in »

He’s either a glorious eccentric or a complete pain in the arse depending on who you talk to. So what’s the truth? The cult actor talks about why he fell out with the makers of Back to the Future, his obsession with the Czech Republic and his new film, The Carrier
It’s about 9am in Los Angeles when I speak to Crispin Glover, but it quickly becomes apparent that time doesn’t mean that much to the man, nor place neither. He expresses surprise at my reference to it being morning – “Oh, right!” – and, when I ask about La, he quickly switches the subject to the Czech Republic, where he has a second home, or, as he puts it, “a chateau”.
It seems an unusual place for a New York-born, La-raised actor-director to take up residence, and I casually wonder if he has family there. This then »

We have a breakdown of how X-Men: Days of Future Past differs from the comics it was based on, a video that breaks down Hot Toys' toy-crafting process and an extensive Back to The Future retrospective.

How Inside Out Should Have Ended
How It Should Have Ended is tackling Inside Out this week, which shows how "brain farts" really work and what happens when someone's mind is blown. It's a wonderful but brief video that pokes fun at the movie without actually tearing into it too much. Inside Out is doing just fine, »
While there are probably some cinephiles out there who have absorbed nearly everything they can about movies such as Star Wars, Jaws, Indiana Jones or Back to the Future, there are plenty of younger, passionate movie fans who haven’t grown up with the film and may be learning about these classics in-depth for the first time.

Lord Vortech has vowed to be that ruler, summoning characters from a variety of Lego worlds to help him find these building bricks of Lego civilization.

One of the most definitive and funniest movies about time travel turned 30 this year. On July 3, 1985, Robert Zemeckis’ classic “Back to the Future” opened in the United States, launching a trilogy and setting a new standard for science fiction films. Sine then, cinephiles across the world have studied the film and its screenplay, both notable examples, not just of genre storytelling, but of filmmaking at large. Of the many enthusiasts and students to have analyzed the film is the prolific and very thorough reviewer, Oliver Harper. Harper’s latest film retrospective is a nearly 30-minute study of Zemeckis’ masterwork, and as example of his own prowess as a storyteller and someone who thoroughly understands the film medium, it begins with a two and a half minute summary of the film, edited together entirely from scenes in the movie. Following the well-crafted synopsis, Harper shifts his breakdown into drive by detailing »

As part of our coverage of the Back To The Future cast reunion at the London Film and Comic Con, I was able to speak with stars Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson, and, of course, I harassed them with Bttf-related questions. Ok, so "harassed" may be too strong of a word to describe it, but considering it's been thirty years since the first movie was released, I'm sure... Read More »

Star Wars famously takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, and this week we found out about a parallel universe of casting in the film series. Neil Calloway looks at the actors who didn’t star in films, but could have…
The news that Michael Jackson wanted to play Jar Jar Binks in the Star Wars prequels is bizarre, and I can’t quite decide whether he would have improved the character or completely ruined the franchise with his appearance. Perhaps the most interesting part is that Jackson wanted the character to be created with make up and prosthetics – he worked with make up genius Rick Baker on the video for Thriller – rather than the CGI preferred by Lucas. There are many, many issues with the Star Wars prequels, but one of them is the over reliance on computer effects on practical effects. So maybe »

Does Hollywood try to remake/sequelize/franchise-extend every single one of its successful movies? Sometimes it feels that way, but there’s a little more nuance to studio practices than that. If you’re looking for meaning in this summer’s blockbuster season – not always easy – you could call it Dr. JurassicMax or How Hollywood Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Reboot. Rebooting franchises isn’t as common, well-received, or lucrative as you might think. Today let’s look briefly at the history of the reboot – and how this summer changed it.
First, what technically counts as a reboot? One school would say that anytime the cast shuffles, it’s a reboot, meaning we’re now on the second reboot (and third iteration) of Spider-Man films. That’s pretty rare; far more often, duration between films is the deciding factor, and it just doesn’t feel right to slap »

Read More: Review: 'Archer' Season 6 Finale, Episode 13 'Drastic Voyage: Part II' Takes Us Back to the Future Woodhouse, Sterling's mistreated butler, driver and general caretaker on the animated series "Archer," has always had a recognizable and sympathetic tone; one that, from Seasons 1 to 4, was voiced by the late George Coe. In honor of the talented voice actor and in recognition of his contribution to the show, FX has released a video in memoriam of Coe. Compiling memorable scenes with the lovable Woodhouse, the clip is sure to move any "Archer" fans and certainly fans of the late Mr. Coe. Coe was not only the voice of Woodhouse on "Archer," but also was an accomplished actor and producer, having been in "Kramer vs. Kramer" and "Blind Date," and having made appearances on many shows from "Grey's Anatomy" to "Two and a Half Men." He was also notably an original »
