Touching Pixar Compilation Video Makes Me Want To Rewatch All The Movies

Video: Don’t watch this excellent compilation video of Pixar movies if you have work you want to get done or plans for fun in the next few days. Because after you watch it, you’ll want to re-watch every single Pixar movie that has ever been made immediately. Just kidding, you’ll want to watch every Pixar movie except for Cars.


A Robot Love Story Built Of A Thousand Rubik's Cubes

If you’ve ever managed to finish a Rubik’s cube, you might be a little proud of the fact (I certainly would be.) That is, at least, before you saw this stop motion robot love story video, the result of someone solving 1300 Rubik’s cubes nearly a thousand times each.

Awesome Short Film Shows Star Wars from The Empire's Perspective

Watch this. Now. TIE Fighter is a short animation by Paul Johnson that shows a bit of Star Wars from the perspective of the Empire. It’s done in the style of anime from the ’80s and shows an aerial fight scene between TIE fighters and X-wings. It’s so awesome that Disney should make this an entire movie.


Up reimagined As A Horror Movie Works Surprisingly Well

The story of Up works well because it’s heartwarming to see an odd couple go on an adventure together in a flying house and run into squirrel-addicted dogs.

Map Shows The Location Of Popular Animated Movies Across The World

Though most of the real world lives in China and India and other parts of Asia, the fake animated world is almost exclusively set in the USA and Europe. Obviously, that’s because many popular animation movies are made by Western shops for Western audiences, but, hey, can the rest of the world get some animated love?
