Star Wars: Revisited – A Fan Edit That Does It Better?

The Star Wars movies sit atop my list of favourite films, with The Empire Strikes Back holding the number one spot.

Nothing can beat the nostalgia the original series holds but this anime-style reboot could still be really cool.

After tweeting the recent Wondercon trailer for the new animated series, the below ThunderCats CG short was fired back at me.  (more…)


DeLorean Monster Truck

This beast brings a whole new meaning to Doc Brown saying “Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads.” If you’d asked me two weeks ago what my dream vehicle/mode of transport was, I’d have talked to you about one of these… (more…)
