Epic Stop Motion Lego Star Wars Lightsaber Battle

This video was made by YouTube user xxxfancypantsxxx as part of an animation challenge on bricksinmotion.com, and as I’m sure you noticed, “epic” doesn’t really do justice to the work that was done here. I mean, even in my mid-thirties, I’d totally go and see something like this if it were to be released on […]

The Dork Anthem: Yeah, I Believe in Magic!

Music for the Disembodied: Holographic Talking Heads by Neurosonics

You try and come up with a better headline. My first thought is that this looks like something out of a Futurama episode. The only way it would be any cooler is if they had used the cast of Star Trek as heads. (via Neatorama)

Oh, for the Love of Science!

There are a few rules of thumb about making a good fictional movie. “Introduce character, introduce conflict, show resolution” is common when it comes to structure. Avoid excessive exposition (using dialogue as a shortcut for explaining background) is another. Now a physics professor has a proposal for another rule: only break the laws of physics […]
