Saturday fun time for 4/15/2017

Any other year and you’d be worrying about getting your taxes out today. You can push that to Monday now. Here’s a recap of some great stuff from the last week.

First up Mystery Science Theater 3000 has returned on Netflix. If you are a fan of the show already, I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed with the new version. If you’ve never seen it you really should check it out.

Thor: Ragnarok released a teaser this week and for once they’ve made Thor look really interesting. It doesn’t hurt they are mixing in stylistic elements of Guardians of the Galaxy and setting it all to Led Zeppelin either.

Plus we got our first look at Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Saturday Fun Time for 1/21/2017

Fun Time is back.

First up, a parody of a trailer for the Wolf of Wallstreet. I present to you The Worf of Starfleet.

Up next Raiders of the Lost Ark recut as an action film in the style of the Bourne series. You should check out some of their other trailers as well.

I’m sure you’ve heard by now they are remaking Duck Tales with an all star cast including Danny Pudi, David Tennant, and Kate Micucci. Here is the case singing the theme song, you’re welcome for getting the song stuck in your head.

Saturday fun time for 10/1/2016

I’ve been a little hit or miss in the past few weeks, but let’s put that behind us and have a little fun. Kicking off the fun is a cut of the Supergirl Season 2 trailer with the iconic Superman score from John Williams.

Up next is the Animated Adventures of Indiana Jones. The internet has spoken, this series needs to happen now.

In some ways it seems crazy to release a short teaser for a short trailer, but that’s the CW for you. The whole clip/short is available through the CW app and it’s pretty fun.

Saturday Funtime 8/20/2016

It’s back, your weekly digest of fun videos that have made their way around the web and our hearts.

First up is the fan made trailer for an animated Firefly series. It manages to capture the heart of the show in 39 seconds using only music and animation. If the Batman ’66 cast can come together and do an animated movie, surely someone can get the Firefly cast back for this on Hulu, Netflix, or Amazon Prime.

Speaking of the Batman ’66 animated movie. A trailer has popped up for it with Burt Ward and Adam West. You can hear the age in Mr. West’s voice, but this is still going to be a fun movie.

And in case you missed it, the new Rogue One trailer has been released. I know this is almost two weeks old, but it gives a context for the other video linked here which is a recut of The Empire Strikes Back in the same trailer format.

Happy Star Wars Day!

While this site has veered away from the geek to some degree, it still exists at the foundation. Here is a short from Disney for The Force Awakens told in emoji. Spoilers if you haven’t seen the movie yet.
