These Real Moments In History Inspired The Events Of Game Of Thrones

Video: The world of Westeros in Game of Thrones is so impressively detailed, and the history of its characters is so well crafted, that it’s amazing that George RR Martin could even come up with something so imaginative all on his own. Of course, as we know, that’s not the case. Game of Thrones is heavily influenced by real life historical events, many of which come from the medieval history of Great Britain.


The Evolution Of Wolverine In Movies And TV Shows

Video: Wait, there was a Wolverine on screen before Hugh Jackman? No one is really sure. Hugh Jackman’s dominance of the character in the movies makes this evolution of Wolverine video from Burger Fiction seem like a look into how well he’s aged and how buff he’s gotten.


The Essential Clone Wars Episodes Every Star Wars Fan Should Watch

I’ve made an argument for why you should watch The Clone Wars, but actually watching it is another thing. With 121 episodes, many of them filler, some of them oddly out of order, there’s a certain art to getting the best out of your Clone Wars experience. Here’s my list of the essential episodes you should be watching, neatly sorted into chronological order and cut down to only 65 episodes and a movie.


A Guide To Getting Into Doctor Who

He’s a time-travelling alien called the Doctor. He gallivants around with a human companion, bumps into figures from history, and when he’s on the brink of death, he regenerates into a brand new body. That’s more or less the basics of the British television icon that’s been adventuring in space in time for more than 50 years.


Our First Look At How Agents Of SHIELD Deals With Civil War

Yes, it’s finally Civil War day! But while Cap and Tony duke it out over the Sokovia accords, the folks over at SHIELD suddenly find themselves having to deal with the fallout. Thanks to this new clip, now we know how the events of the film will have an impact on Agents of SHIELD.


Just How Many Cigarettes Did Matthew McConaughey Smoke In True Detective?

This is totally silly because it was two years ago but anyone who saw True Detective season one knew a few things to be true. That Matthew McConaughey was going to win an Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club because of his performance as Rust Cohle in True Detective and that as foul as cigarettes are, you wish you could enjoy them like he did on screen. How many times did he get to make you jealous? A clean 40. Two packs of on screen inhaling joy.


A Side-By-Side Comparison Of A TV Show's First Scene Versus The Final Scene

Video: Because we’re all so sensitive these days: SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t watched TV shows including Breaking Bad, The Wire, Lost, Sons of Anarchy or Friends, watch out, because this video shows the first frame in the series premiere and the last frame was in the series finale. If you have seen the shows (or don’t scream bloody murder about spoilers), you’ll see the interesting juxtaposition of the beginning and end of a TV show right next to each other. It’s great.


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.


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.


This Beautiful Animation For The Wire Is Absolutely Fantastic

Video: The Wire absolutely belongs on the Mount Rushmore of television shows. Its intro sequence was always one of the most memorable both because of the music and how it utilised up close looks at scenes of the season while painting a broader picture of the entire world of The Wire itself. Elliot Lim re-does the intro sequence in animation, which wouldn’t seem like it would work for a TV show as gritty as The Wire but totally does because it captures so much of the shows essence.
