    Remember 'Action Movie Kid'? The videos of a boy whose animator dad added action movie special effects to? Well now they're back with volume two. And let me tell you -- the sequel is even better than the original. I mean, at least from what I gathered from skipping around f... / Continue →

    OMG I love playing the floor is lava! This is 'Action Movie Kid', a series of twelve short videos (they'll play in a row as a playlist) featuring a 3-year old on adventures that his dad has added special effects to. They're all pretty cute. There is very little video footage... / Continue →

    This is a Dragon Ball Z fight imagined in real life. I dunno, if you're into Dragon Ball you might like it. I'd be lying if I told you I watched all eight minutes though, because time is money and I'm broke right now. Thankfully I'm still rich in...dammit, I've got to be ric... / Continue →

    This is a video of a ginger cat battling a bunch of little paper army men. Who wins? SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER BUT NOT REALLY BECAUSE WTF ELSE DID YOU THINK WAS GOING TO HAPPEN: the cat. Also, allegedly no paper army men were harmed in the making of this film, but I dunno -- g... / Continue →

    This is a video from Stan Winston Studio of creature designer Stephen Norrington discussing how the chestbursting alien was made and operated for the iconic movie scene. It's actually fairly simple and required zero CGI. Remember when movies didn't use CGI and the special eff... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile stop motion video featuring Link and Black Rock Shooter doing battle against the Knife Lord. The video consists of over 4,000 individual photos and took an entire month to shoot. My online dating profile video? That took like ten minutes to shoot and may... / Continue →

    This is the giant Gollum statue installed in Wellington Airport in New Zealand by special effects maker Weta Workshop to remind everyone that's where they shoot the Hobbit movies. It's pretty terrifying. Not sure I could comfortably enjoy a Cinnabon with that staring at me. ... / Continue →

    Good Friday? Make it a GREAT Friday and watch videos all day on the clock. This is a Mega Man X fan film shot by director Olan Rogers for $700. That's pretty cheap. Granted not as cheap as my roommate, but he mixes water into the milk carton to make it last longer. It's li... / Continue →

    This is a rap song and music video about The Legend of Zelda called 'I'm Questing'. It's...actually not that bad. They could have found a better looking Link though. Me, I'm talking about me. I'm actually a dead ringer for the Link from the original game. "As wide as you a... / Continue →

    Screencaps: I'm good at them. Here's another video of cosplay characters fighting with added special effects by Yung Lee, the same guy that brought us this one. Apparently all the scenes were made up on the spot (no rehearsals) minus the ones with Zero-Suit Samus and Sheik (Z... / Continue →

    This is a stop-motion animation of a friendly battle between Ryu and Ken complete with special AND sound effects. What a minute -- friendly battle? There's no such thing as a friendly battle! IT IS IS KILL OR BE KILLED. Or, okay, run and hide, but that's generally frowned u... / Continue →

    If you haven't already seen it (and even if you have seen it that doesn't actually change what it is), this is a video of a father and son locked in an epic toy battle, complete with special effects AND sound effects. It's pretty cute and definitely worth a watch. Now I can't... / Continue →

    There are special effects, and then there are special effects by visual effects artist Martin Gamal. His special effects are so special their mom makes them wear a bike helmet at all times. "Jesus, even in the bathtub?!" Ha -- especially in the bathtub. Hit the jump for 12... / Continue →

    Video editor Yung Lee went to the Anime North convention in Toronto and convinced a bunch of the cosplayers there to mock-battle him. Then he added some special effects (mostly a shit-ton of lens flare) and called it 'Epic Anime Time'. This is that video. Personally, I would... / Continue →

    This is the second installment of Freddie Wong's 'Jedi A-holes', appropriately titled 'Jedi A-Holes Strike Back'. Get it? Just like the Star Wars sequel! You might not have picked up on that but I've been complimented for my astuteness on several different occasions. Mostly... / Continue →

    This is a 30-second video of four dudes playing shuffleboard badminton with lightsabers special-effected in over their racquets. It would have been cooler if the editor had turned the shuttlecock into one of those lightsaber training balls like Luke uses on the Millennium Falc... / Continue →

    This is a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare themed movie trailer called 'Find Makarov' that proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that fans are making movies I'd be more likely to go see than the big production companies. Just watch it. Then realize if 20th Century Fox was responsib... / Continue →

    This is Freddie Wong's take on Mario Kart in real life. It's different from Remi Gallard's versions because, instead of relying on being a jackass, Freddie relies on computer effects. Me? I rely on side effects. 'Don't Mix With Alcohol' my ass -- it's the only way daddy get... / Continue →

    Ice Cube? WTF are you doing there?! This is The Wrath of Khan (RIP Ricardo!) performed in 60-seconds through the use of papercraft and special effects. It's pretty accurate though because I remember watching in horror as a child when they put those ear-worms (Ceti eels) in C... / Continue →

    In other "you've got to be f***ing kidding me" news, this is a video of a guy getting a watermelon exploded off his head with a .50 caliber sniper rifle. Now if you're familiar with Freddie's other Youtube videos, you'll know almost all (read: all) of them involve special effe... / Continue →
