Deadpool Vs. Boba Fett in an Epic Rap Battle
The fine folks at Epic Rap Battles have capitalized on the buzz for Deadpool and the immensely popular Star Wars franchise with their new battle, which pits the Merc With the Mouth against the beloved bounty hunter Boba Fett. As always, this three-minute video is highly-inventive, with some hilarious disses of both these iconic characters.
Jewish Die Hard
With Christmas Day just one week away, fans who prefer action to family drama will most likely be revisiting the holiday classic Die Hard. Funny or Die has put together a three-minute video that reimagines the iconic John McClane as a Jewish man named John Cohen. The video cuts in new footage of this reluctant Jewish man with footage from the original 1988 classic for an entertaining three-minute mashup.
10 Movies That Stole Props From Other Movies
Screen Rant has a new six-minute video that breaks down 10 movies that stole or reworked props from other movies. For example, the jet that was destroyed during the Hulk vs. Thor fight in Marvel's The Avengers is the same jet flown by Arnold Schwarzenegger nearly 20 years earlier in True Lies.
Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope Bad Lip Reading Video
Everyone seems to be in the Star Wars spirit these days, including the fine folks at Bad Lip Reading, who put together a hilarious new video featuring scenes from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. Jack Black, Maya Rudolph, and Bill Hader provide their voices to present some alternative dialogue that is quite hilarious.
Star Wars Gets a Woody Allen Remix
Vulture is back with a new remix, where they reimagine the the Star Wars franchise. With the help of some new music and a black-and-white presentation, this video cuts together several scenes from Star Wars movies, as if they were directed by Woody Allen. C-3PO essentially serves as the chatty Woody Allen in this brief but hilarious video.
How Revenge of the Sith Should Have Ended
The creative folks from How It Should Have Ended has put together a new four-minute video, which pokes fun at the ending of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. This animated ending makes fun of Annakin for taking so long to figure out that Palpatine is the Sith Lord, Obi-Wan's confrontation with General Grievous and much more.
Everything Wrong With the Star Wars Prequels
The fine folks at Cinema Sins have gone through the entire Star Wars prequel trilogy - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. Their breakdown is so extensive they had to split up each movie into two lengthy videos. But still, it's a lot shorter than having to watch the entire trilogy over again...
