Every James Bond Gadget
With Spectre hitting theaters today, Burger Fiction has put together a comprehensive video that shows every single James Bond gadget, from 1963's Dr. No to 2012's Skyfall. If you have 16 minutes to kill, it's a fascinating video that shows how 007's gadgetry has evolved over the past 50 years.
Robot Chicken Spoofs Arrow & The Flash
Season 8 of Robot Chicken recently debuted on Adult Swim, and the season premiere skewered The CW's hit shows Arrow and The Flash with a hilarious sketch. The video features The Nerd (Seth Green), who becomes magically transported into these hit superhero shows, along with Beauty & the Beast, America's Next Top Model and Jane the Virgin.
Biggest Editing Mistakes In Hit Movies
Screen Rant has put together a seven-minute video that breaks down editing mistakes in huge blockbuster movies. Granted, most viewers wouldn't catch these mistakes upon their first viewing in a theater, but it's still intriguing to see some of these errors that managed to slip by the editors of Mad Max: Fury Road, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World and many more.
Kids React to The Peanuts Movie Trailer
The Fine Brothers are back with a new installment of their Kids React series, and this time, a group of youngsters react to a trailer for The Peanuts Movie. I've seen a lot of these different Kids and Teens React videos, and it's always kind of sad when the younger generation doesn't recognize something beloved from our generation. This is one of the first I've seen where all of the kids were at least familiar with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the gang. Be sure to stick around until the end when the kids get a special surprise.
Project Greenlight Spoof Skewers HBO Films' Len Amato
After a lengthy hiatus, the reality series Project Greenlight returned to HBO this year, and the show was more polarizing than ever. Now that the series has ended, and the movie The Leisure Class has aired on HBO, Funny or Die has put together a spoof where a fictionalized version of HBO Films' Len Amato critiques himself. Whether you loved or hated the show this season, and there are plenty in both camps, this video has something that will appeal to both sides.
9 Incredibly Hard to Shoot Movie Scenes
Screen Rant has put together a seven-minute video that showcases nine movie scenes that were incredibly hard to shoot. For instance, 2002's Spider-Man featured a scene where Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst) slips in the cafeteria, as her lunch items go flying into the air, before Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) uses his new Spidey skills to catch every item on her tray. Tobey Maguire actually pulled off that effect in real time, with no special effects. Other scenes in this video include Saving Private Ryan's incredible opening sequence on Omaha Beach and Tony Stark's insane mid-air rescue scene in Iron Man 3.
James Bond Infographic Shows How Each 007 Stacks Up
GB Showplates has put together an impressive infographic that breaks down and compares each actor who has played James Bond, through a number of Bond-specific categories. For instance, Roger Moore has the most Bond kisses, while Daniel Craig is the "booziest" 007, with the highest average number of alcohol units consumed.
