How Many People Has Jean-Claude Van Damme Killed In All His Movies?

Few people have given kids and movie watchers and just humans in general more joy than Jean-Claude Van Damme. His crazy fists and wild kicks and fun brand of martial arts just leaves you with a grin on your face. But to his enemies in movies, well, he leaves them dead. How many people has he killed in his movies?

Video: The Foot Fetish Of Quentin Tarantino Movies

Quentin Tarantino has a foot fetish. We know this, already. He also loves to show it off in his movies. We can now see this in this wonderful edit by Pablo Fernandez Eyre that stitched together scenes that involve feet in all his movies. It’s really, really great and uncomfortable and fun at the same time.

The 7 Dark Original Stories That Inspired 7 Popular Disney Movies

Disney movies almost always have happy endings but in order to get to the living happily ever after part, some pretty dark things usually have to happen. But they’re not as dark as the original stories the movies are based on. Those are basically horrific tales of torture that have been cleverly repurposed to entertain kids and sell toys now.

A Tense Action Scene From The Movie Everest with No SFX Added Is Hilariously Great

In a hilarious mix up, the movie studio behind Everest sent the BBC this clip of the movie that had no sound effects added. Which is really, really great for us because it is oh so goofy to see an impossibly tense scene of the movie with all the VFX added and everything looking right and action packed but sounding… like they’re having a normal conversation in a quiet room.

The 12 Steps That Basically Every Hero In A Movie Goes Through

Video: It’s pretty simple even if we don’t want to acknowledge it: movies are pretty much set up all the same and a hero’s journey roughly follows a pretty universal 12-step process. Or at least that’s what Iskander Krayenbosch thinks in his animation The Hero’s Journey. He deftly utilises characters from popular movies to prove his point for each step.

A Movie's First And Last Scene, Compared Side-by-side (NSFW)

We’ve seen film editor Jacob T. Swinney juxtapose the first and last shot of a movie before. Now he’s back again, comparing how 70 more movies open and close. Obviously there may be some vague-ish spoilers in some of the closing shots and a few of the scenes in this cut are NSFW but it’s really interesting just to see how movies start and wrap up their stories, visually.

Honest Trailer Of Avengers: Age Of Ultron Shows How Even Good Marvel Movies Aren't As Fun Anymore

Marvel is still pumping out some really good and really fun movies but there’s definitely a little fatigue when it comes to juggling all these superheroes to set up all these storylines to connect all these worlds. A movie like Avengers: Age of Ultron was absolutely, totally good! But it tries to do too much without doing enough in some parts.

All The Awesome Cars From Mad Max: Fury Road In One Cool Graphic

One of our favourite artists, Scott Park, illustrated 33 of the cars from Mad Max: Fury Road and they look great. You’ll see Furiosa’s War Rig and the Interceptor and the Gigahorse and more drawn in a really fun style.

I Watched Netflix In VR And Now Reality Seems Hollow And Pointless

“IT’S FOR GAMES” has been the oft-quoted cry of VR headset makers and gamers when talking about virtual reality, but the opportunity for movies is unquestionably huge. Today, Oculus VR released a Netflix app for the Gear VR (and eventually Oculus’ own headset.) And it makes watching Netflix in real life seem super lame.

Why Do Action Scenes In Movies Suck?

Here’s a really good video essay from Sam and Niko about action scenes in movies. They first start by showing us what bad action scenes look like — quick cuts, implied action, reason-less fighting, etc. — and then delve into movies that do action scenes really well (involve characters we care about, actually show the action and the action with reaction, etc.). It’s really nice to be able to see the good and the bad side-by-side, since the differences are highlighted even more.
