I stumbled upon this video while surfing the internet a bit ago and now is the perfect time to share. It’s a fan-edit of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones into the style of The Nice Guys, which was a great movie from a couple of years ago.
This is quality comedy content! The fan-edit is by YouTuber Imperator Cuts, who has a bunch of other good video edits on their channel. I like me a good fan-edited trailer.
I don’t care about the Snyder Cut of the Justice League movie. I can remember mildly enjoying all of Zack Snyder’s DC Comics movies in the theaters, but time has curdled that opinion and I don’t care for Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice or Justice League. So if we’re drawing lines in the sand, I am definitely not one of those fanboys who was desperate for Zack Snyder’s director’s cut of Justice League.
I thought the whole idea was as much a joke as this Honest Trailers video on the subject.
But earlier this week, Warner Bros. has announced that they will release the massive, 4-hour Snyder’s Cut of Justice League next year to attract viewers to their upcoming HBO Now streaming service. Gotta have something to offer people to get them to subscribe to yet another streaming service; and someone thought pandering to the fanboys was the right choice.
We’ll see. I’ll probably watch the Snyder Cut some how when it’s out, but I’m fairly certain it’s going to be as bad as the rest of Snyder’s DC output. Such is life.
So I’ve been pretty lost in the drudgery of self-isolation these days. I wake up, work from home for a couple hours, nap on the couch watching YouTube in the afternoon, maybe play a boring video game, watch a show. It’s weird. But I like the idea of still posting on this blog and sharing fun content from around the internet. So here’s How It Should Have Ended: Sonic the Hedgehog.
Fun stuff. These people know what they’re doing and they do it well. I hope quarantine is going well for all these cartoon internet creators. Though they’ve got to be on the verge of running out of new movies to parody…so they’ll probably just go back and find old movies they’ve never done before. There will be no end to the movies to parody!
This past weekend, Saturday Night Live ran an animated segment about the Middle-Aged Mutant Ninja Turtles. It was pretty funny. I’m always up for a good TMNT parody.
If you’re like me, a person of refined and excellent taste, then you might notice something strikingly familiar about that segment: it was animated by the same studio that did those classic College Humor Ninja Turtles bits!
Lowbrow Studios has been putting out hilarious video game and pop culture parody videos for years, and their Ninja Turtle segments for College Humor back in the day were amazing!
It’s great to see them getting more renown! According to comments they made on YouTube, they were hired as a third party to do the SNL segment, which is why they weren’t more openly credited. But I can credit their good work all I want!
So spend your quarantine day going down the Lowbrow Studios YouTube rabbit hole and have a good day of it!
Since I no longer have comics to talk about, it’s a good thing I’ve saved up a couple of good YouTube videos to use on lazy Fridays like this one. Arguably, I should have plenty of time to write up some original pieces for this blog, but I have not yet transitioned out of the ‘lay on my couch staring at my ceiling’ phase of quarantine.
So how about the Honest Trailer of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker!
Ha, yeah. The movie was all those things. In time, I’m probably going to feel the same way about The Rise of Skywalker as I do the other new Star Wars movies. Which is that it’s fine, but I just don’t care.
How about the Honest Trailer for Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey?
Also a movie I enjoyed. I’m sad it wasn’t a success and we probably won’t get a sequel of any kind. But at least we’ve got parody videos!
