Video: Oh, Luke, telling the world the Jedi are finished doesn't feel quite as dramatic when it's via text bubble. With both Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Battlefront 2 on the horizon, one fan has started the 8-bit (technically 16-bit) parody trailer wagon rolling... and he has the approval of TLJ's director himself.

Stranger Things has been remade every which way from Sunday, and now we're got a new 8-bit rendition of the modern classic. Sure, it's got Eggo waffles, tired Will eyes, and a floating Millennium Falcon, but just look at the Demogorgon! It's so precious I want to give it a hug — although I won't, because I don't think it would end well.
Video: Jurassic World is coming out this weekend and just by existing, it's already better than The Lost World and *whispers* Jurassic Park 3. But there is no way in hell that it can ever top the original Jurassic Park. Hell, I know this 8-bit video game version of Jurassic Park is better than all the movies that followed it and I haven't even seen the new one yet.
Video: It shouldn't come as a surprise as The Shawshank Redemption is one of the all-time great movies, but this 8-bit version of the film captures a little bit of that same spirit and is fun to watch too. I guess Andy and Red's friendship translates into any medium, even if it's animated in a retro video game style.
Video: The best video games you can play are those that let you act like a complete maniac while surrounded by party girls and mountains of drugs and just shoot a lot of people. Basically, the best video game you can play is just playing the plot of Scarface over and over again. CineFix shows its latest 8-bit creation below.
Video: Here's CineFix's latest creation: the 2014 blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy in 8-bit. Although this video game version doesn't have the charm of Chris Pratt or versatility of Vin Diesel's dialogue, it does have the nostalgia of old video games which matches up nicely with the throwback fun in the movie.
Video: What might be even cooler than seeing this 8-bit game version of Frozen is hearing 8-bit sounds beep and butcher all the songs that made Frozen so damn popular in the first place. Watch CineFix pull their 8-bit take on Frozen below.
Video: Being better than a Matrix sequel is not saying much, I know. But after recently re-watching the whole trilogy (and enjoying it!), it's still nuts how much better the first one was. The action sequences in the sequels may have been more insane, but this 8-bit game version of The Matrix brings back more fond memories than the sequels do.
Video: Obviously, it's not quite as stylised and sexy as the original Sin City but this 8-bit video game version by CineFix does a great job in mimicking the original by adding the perfect dab of colour to accentuate the shadowy world of the graphic novel. The whole thing plays out like a comic strip.
Like most people with eyeballs, I've scrubbed the memory of The Matrix sequels from the creases of my brain. That's why I had so much fun when I watched this scene from The Matrix Reloaded. Oh and hearing 8-bit sounds instead of real noises makes it way more enjoyable. It's an action comedy movie now!
I just love when movies are summarised into CineFix's 8-bit cinema style. It combines the nostalgia of childhood video games with the memory of movies that I should watch more often. This time, it's Donnie Darko that gets the 8-bit treatment. As you can imagine, there's a lot of confusion, conversations and rabbits.
