Screen Junkies braces for impact against people who take entertainment way too seriously. Watch them talk about Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s divisive “kill the past” themes, the Rebel’s stupid secret plan and Kylo Ren’s chests, er, eyes.
THE BEST Parodies
As if there wasn’t already way too much going on in Avengers: Infinity War, Aldo Jones had to go and add even more characters and insanity to the film with his latest weird trailer. Honestly, we’re surprised that Shrek didn’t join the Avengers sooner.
(PG-13: Language) “You can really express your personality by copying what popular rappers are wearing.” Casually Explained breaks down some of the most popular brands and trends in men’s fashion. All without saying hype, fire, lit, woke, or Off-White. A true scholar.
If Star Wars can have spin-offs, there’s no reason Spaceballs shouldn’t too. Darth Blender mashed up the voiceover from the trailer from Solo: A Star Wars Story with the Mel Brooks space spoof to give us a glimpse at the origin story of its roguish pilot and his sidekick, Barf.
Fake posters poking fun at the Coachella lineup have been a thing for 10+ years. But this might be the best one yet, as Botnik used machine learning to come up with the names of the acts for the Southern Cali music festival. We’re so excited to see Smushy Twin touring again.
Word has it that Quentin Tarantino is really working on a Star Trek film – and we so want to see that. While we wait and see how that turns out, Nerdist went ahead and made a trailer for what they think it might be like, using footage from The Original Series.
A hilarious short film about the “important” work that goes into commercial production, as a duo of micromanaging marketing execs try to coax exactly the right mood from a voice actor. It’ll hit close to home for anyone creative who has to pay the bills with a “real job.”
The whole idea of cryptocurrency can be a little hard for the average joe to wrap their mind around. Perhaps this commercial parody from a recent episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers will help us understand Bitcoin, blockchain technology, and virtual economies better.
“The best way to diversify your portfolio is to put all your money in Bitcoin.” Self help guru JP Sears is back to school us on what could either be the future of money, or an explosive bubble. Either way, he’s ahead of the curve, trading his soul for a few virtual pieces of cryptocurrency.
From the creator of Dust: An Elysian Tail comes a parody of Metal Gear Solid. Never Stop Sneakin’ is a top-down simplified stealth action game for the Nintendo Switch. It uses only the left thumb stick – every action is contextual. The folks behind its trailer deserve a raise.
Mashup maker Darth Blender chopped up bits and pieces of classic sci-fi, superhero, and fantasy footage to create an awesome retro take on the Avengers: Infinity War trailer, had the movie come out sometime in the late 1970s or early 1980s. I-ron Man is the best.
Funnyman Matt Shirley is famous on Instagram for making hilarious charts and graphs on a whiteboard. He recently started an online shop where you can grab some of his graphical jokes as 8″x 10″ prints on cardstock. The Cycle of Adulthood needs to be taught in science class.
