Watch The Movie References Used By The Simpsons Side-By-Side With The Actual Scene (NSFW)

Video: Celia Gomez edited scenes from The Simpsons side-by-side with the movies those scenes are paying homage to and it’s just so much fun. We get to see how the hilarious animators of The Simpsons have repurposed and refashioned those iconic movies to be set in Springfield. That means seeing our favourite characters on The Simpsons turn into set pieces in Raiders of the Lost Ark or Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct, as well as seeing how two cupcakes can be creatively used to recreate a NSFW scene in A Clockwork Orange.


How Star Wars: The Force Awakens Really Should Have Ended

Video: Everyone had a good time watching the new Star Wars so let’s not get angry and accuse each other of not enjoying the very idea of fun. But still, as with every other movie, there were a few problems and mid-sized logic gaps that were ignored in the name of entertainment. HISHE fixes all those problems with the obvious solutions and even amends the ending that would be more fitting for the characters we love.


Dissecting A Chainsaw

Video: Here’s a really neat animation that reveals how a chainsaw works. The piston inside powers the three-row shark teeth chain of blades at 113km/h! We get to see how the hundred of parts come together in this dissection animation and even cooler, get to see the manufacturing process of the all-important guide bar of a chainsaw (the metal plate of the chainsaw blades).


Watch Cute Monster Drawings Get Drawn Into Real Life

Video: Augmented reality artist Marty Cooper is back with his always fun Aug(de)mented Reality series that splices imaginative little drawings of cute monsters into real life. They’re always so clever and up to no good, popping out of places you’d least expect them to and doing things with so much pizzazz that you’d wish they were almost real (not really, but almost)!


Why Wildfires Are Actually Helpful For The Environment

Wildfires scorch and blacken the Earth but turns out they’re actually essential for the environment and even good for the trees themselves. That’s right, this animation explainer from Ted-Ed explains how burning trees can actually help trees grow in the future. It’s because when trees overgrow they will have too thick of a canopy that will block the sunlight that stops new trees from growing. Fires are like a checks and balance system on all that.


Star Wars: The Force Awakens Summarised In A Hilariously Crude 60-Second Animation

Video: If you haven’t seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens yet, why bother? Just troll the entire world by saying you were too busy or that Star Wars is just OK or that you’re totally fine with missing out on whatever silly pop culture thing takes over the world for a few minutes every year. Just watch this hilarious speedrun drawing of the movie by 1A4 Studio instead. It’s basically all you need. Who needs the special effects?


Hilarious Animation Imagines Old Star Wars Characters Meeting New Star Wars Characters

Video: Did you see the new Star Wars yet? Of course you did. You probably watched it twice (and if you didn’t watch it yet, stop reading). It was great, right? Such a fun time. Did the franchise good. A heck of a show. Until you realise (stop reading now if you still haven’t seen) that the characters and the storyline are basically the same as before! It’s just recycled awesomeness. Awesomely recycled, of course.


Fun Inifinite Loop Animation Breaks The Concept Of Past, Present And Future

Video: This quirky animation from CraveFX starts off innocently enough, a janitorial worker mops up a leaky refrigerator and then picks up a coin on the ground. It’s not until you see what causes the refrigerator to leak and why the coin is on the ground that you realise that you’re watching an intricate moving puzzle piece before your eyes. The characters are stuck in an infinite loop caused by another character in their own infinite loop. It’s chaotic and great and hard to keep up with.


Fun Morphing Animation Summarises What Happened In 2015

Video: 2015 was a year. And like most years, things happened. Pranay Patwardhan summarises the big events in this wonderful animation. The world’s biggest stories morph into each other seamlessly. Can you recognise them all?


Evolution Of Robots In Movies And TV

Video: Science fiction movies and TV shows don’t really count unless they have iconic robot characters. That’s a completely true statement, by the way. Nobody cares how good a story is unless they can pretend living in a reality where sentient robots, awesome droids and fun little machine pals exists. We want to live in the future where Roombas go on adventures with us! Artist Scott Park illustrated all our favourite robots from movies and TV shows — think R2-D2 and HAL 9000 and Optimus Prime and Johnny Five — to show the evolution of these synthetic characters.
