Friday Fun: Live Action 1st Person Shooter Played on Chatroulette!

chatroulette first person shooterThis is an incredible project.

The team at RealmPictures created a live action first person shooter with graphics, a Duke Nukem voice for the main character, hordes of zombies, weapon upgrades, and a killer boss battle.  All of this streaming live, with game play controlled via random strangers shouting commands on Chatroulette.

It looks like this would have been a really fun project to work on, and the responses from people playing are hilarious.

Friday Fun: Get Funky with ‘Ultron Funk’ Avengers Parody

Happy Friday!

If I had a complaint with Avengers: Age of Ultron, it would be that there wasn’t nearly enough choreographed dance sequences set to Bruno Mars. Thankfully Screen Team has our back with this riff on Uptown Funk, and some pretty sexy dance moves from Ultron. Enjoy!

Friday Fun: What if ‘Man of Steel’ Was in Color?

This video does an excellent job of nailing one of the technical criticisms I had with Man of Steel, and something which I feel will continue to be an issue with Batman v Superman. It would seem that DC learned the wrong lesson from Christopher Nolan’s Batman films. That because the Dark Knight franchise was successful, and they were dark and gritty with muted color, then ALL superhero films should be dark and gritty with muted color.

Friday Fun: ‘The Flash’ Cast Sings the Theme Song to ‘Firefly’

jesse l martin the flash firefly singing kickstarterIt’s really fun to see circular fandom between actors and showrunners.

Jesse L Martin is self producing a short film, and fundraising on Kickstarter. Joss Whedon apparently pledged “an outstanding amount” to the project. To thank him, Martin grabbed Flash co-stars Rick Cosnett and Carlos Valdes for a little a capella rendition of the Firefly theme. Take a listen.

We also know that Grant Gustin who plays Barry Allen on the show can carry a tune, so maybe a musical episode might be in our future?

Friday Fun: Daughter & Father Record their Reactions to Watching Scary Film – Hilarity Ensues

the_conjuringFamily bonding at its finest!

I’m a sucker for scary films, and I loves me a good reaction video. This Father (who isn’t a fan of horror) stuck it out for some Daddy Daughter bonding and captured some hysterical moments of fright while the two watched The Conjuring together.

I loathe horror films, but my oldest daughter has a penchant for them. She thought it would be cute to record ourselves watching The Conjuring. My embarrassment is for your pleasure. Enjoy!

Friday Fun: OK GO’s video for ‘Writing’s on the Wall’ will warp your brain!

ok go writings on the wall music videoI love OK GO. They produce some of the most inventive music videos in an age where the traditional music video has become passé.

Their latest outing is no exception, and the video they’ve cut for Writing’s on the Wall explores many of our favorite optical illusions. Doesn’t hurt that I also really like the song. Enjoy!
