Teens React to Netflix's Fuller House
Fine Brothers Entertainment is back with a new video in their React series, where groups of teens or elders are shown reacting to various TV shows, movies or video games. Today, we have a group of teens who react to the trailer for Fuller House, Netflix's Full House revival. Surprisingly, almost all of these kids loved the original show and were excited for the revival, but there is one who had no clue what this show was. It's interesting to see how today's teenagers are looking forward to a revival of a show that aired before they were born.
Spectre Honest Trailer
Screen Junkies has turned their sarcastic attention to last year's James Bond movie Spectre, with a five-minute Honest Trailer that simply destroys the most inane aspects of this underwhelming movie. This video skewers the classic Bond tropes and the movie's decision to blend the quirky 1960s style humor with the gritty version of 007 we've seen in the last few Daniel Craig movies. Even if you liked Spectre, you have to admit that this video is spot-on.
DIY Harry Potter Quidditch Snitch
Even though the Harry Potter movie series ended almost five years ago, the beloved franchise still has a strong fan base, and for those who enjoy some magical cosplay, or homemade props, this entry is right up your alley. DIY Prop Shop is back this week with a new video that shows you how to make your very own DIY version of a Harry Potter quidditch snitch. This 11-minute video shows you how to make this impressive prop at the low cost of just $17.
Groundhog Day gets a Donald Trump Reboot
On Monday night, the results of the Iowa Caucus were announced, and much to many's delight and surprise, Donald Trump actually lost to Senator Ted Cruz. While we don't know exactly how this will impact the rest of his Presidential campaign, Funny or Die has taken it upon themselves to put together a short version of Groundhog Day, which shows what might happen if Donald Trump had won the caucus. Of course, the real Groundhog Day was the day after the caucus, which makes this even more hilarious.

Shortly after the Oscar nominations were announced, a Twitter user named @dilsexia shared an image from the old Winnie the Pooh cartoons, featuring Christopher Robin playing with the title bear, as a humorous jab at The Revenant. Polish film blogger David Adamek took this concept one step further, and created posters for several other Oscar nominees, using images from this beloved cartoon. We have the Pooh posters for Mad Max: Fury Road, Creed and Room below, and you can check out the rest at David Adamek's website.
Dakota Johnson and Leslie Mann Hit On a Hot Reporter
Press junkets are often tedious affairs for actors and filmmakers, who have to sit in a room for hours on end and answer, essentially, the same questions over and over again from journalists across the country. During the How to Be Single junket, Chris Van Vliet from WSVN Miami was set to interview Dakota Johnson and Leslie Mann, but everything quickly went off the rails after the actresses kept commenting on how attractive this interviewer was. It even got to the point where the actresses wouldn't talk to him unless he unbuttoned his shirt.
Arkham Asylum Goes LEGO
If you love elaborate LEGO builds, then we have just the video for you, with an incredible version of Arkham Asylum constructed out of 18,000 LEGO pieces. This epic creation took over three months to build, and the results are surely impressive.
