Hell’s Club: Another Night

Hell’s Club: Another Night is a quite possibly the greatest movie mashup of all time. Editing whizz Antonio Maria Da Silva creates a fictional nightclub where characters from disparate movies meet and interact. Outside of time. Outside of all logic.

Blade is the bouncer at the entrance. Daft Punk, the resident DJs, are banging out the killer tunes. Multiple James Bonds are at the bar. RoboCop is enforcing the no smoking rules. John Travolta is feeling the Saturday night fever, and so is the terrible dancer Jean-Claude Van Damme. Naturally, cocktails are being served by Tom Cruise.

Everyone’s having a great time until a bunch of Xenomorphs crash the party (via the ventilation shafts, obvs). It’s…madness, glorious mashup madness.

Dubstep Solves Everything

YouTube user Jack Douglass wants to drop out of school and make dubstep his profession. When he tells his parents of the life-altering decision, they ask him what dubstep is and Jack explains it with a rather humourous round of show and tell.

Anime Ping Pong

It’s a common myth that all Asians know kung fu. Freddie Wong’s Kung Fooled certainly reminds us of that. This is also true for the game of table tennis, however when a friendly game between two Asians becomes heated, it quickly turns into a match of epic proportions. This is Ping Pong.

Filmography 2011: The Year in Movies

There are only 15 days to go until the end of this year. If I could remember anything, I would say 2011 was a year like no other. There was good, there was bad, and everything else in between. In his retrospective montage, Filmography 2011, YouTube user genrocks celebrates the year in movies.

This mashup is composed of clips from 230 films that were produced or released this year. For more info on the film and music selection, visit the Filmography 2011 tumblelog.

The Picard Song

Darryn Bonthuys, from Extra Life, if you’re reading this, I hate you. The epicness that is Jean-Luc Picard is now stuck in my head.

The Adventures of Robot Elephant!

A school student is attending a biology lecture that so happens to be terminally boring (been there, snored through that). To pass the time, this student uses the pages of his notebook to draw out the adventures of a very cute, very special elephant. The stop-motion animation is a tad slow to begin but it then becomes quite a blast. Check out epic doodle that is (Notes on) Biology.

Epic Orchestral Melodies By “Two Steps From Hell”

There’s a great little thread going on over at the PS3ZA forums where the original poster wonders what the theme tune to life would it be. The replies have included a rather comical Benny Hill tribute, the smell of Napalm in the morning, and even the desire for surprise buttseks. It’s clearly a diverse crowd.

Another member posted a song by Two Steps from Hell, an outfit that creates music for the trailers to movies and video games like The Dark Knight, Star Trek, Inception, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, and Mass Effect 2. It’s all very epic, beautiful, and optimistic. If this kind of music dictated what I did in life, I wouldn’t be stuck in the cubicle that time forgot. No, I’d be flying with dragons. Have a listen to some of the beautiful pieces created by Two Steps from Hell. They’re all from the Invincible studio album with the exception of Love & Loss.

Love & Loss

Stirring, no? If you had to choose a theme tune to life, what would it be?

Epic Free Running!

Remember the compilation of terrible freerunning fails and bails? If not, refresh your memory here. As a foil to that, we happened upon a trio of videos that display how the tricks and spins that distinguish free running from parkour are supposed to be done.

The first video, a showreel for British free running team Storm Freerun, contains displays of awesomeness by the team’s current members, although it could have done without all the posturing in the beginning.

The second compilation is by the outfit 3RUN, so-called because of the three disciplines they are excellent at – free running, parkour, and martial arts. It’s a little nauseating in the beginning but if you fight back the vomit, it gets better.

The next clip is the reportedly the world’s best free running compilation, volume 3. It’s relatively entertaining and only brought down by the horrible sounds of Evanescence.

If you have a favourite free running video that you’d like to share, do let us know.
