Cinefix has taken Leeloo and Korben and dropped them into an 8-Bit world and it’s glorious. This has all of the most memorable scenes from the movie, complete with appropriately old-school sound effects. And the best part is, you don’t need a pocket full of quarters to get to the end.

x-wing lamp 1

What if X-wings were like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer? This glowing X-wing fighter could guide the Rogue Squadron through any foggy night. Or, it could just light up a room since it’s a light installation. Behance user Benjamin Rice worked on this gigantic fixture for an event in London that’s all about urban bicycling. To that end, they made the lamp from Old Raleigh Grifter bicycles. It looks like it’s ready to take on the Death Star.

Check out more images of the light after the break.

Grand Theft Auto IV doesn’t seem like a natural setting for Elsa and Anna of Disney’s Frozen. The streets of Liberty City are significantly rougher than those of Arendelle, but the sisters got it covered. While “Let It Go” and a uh, more adult version of the song play, Elsa and Anna ride motorcycles, shoot guns, and act like badasses. It’s kind of awesome.

See the game play in the videos after the break – the language is NSFW.

hodor instagram 1

I have a hunch that if social media existed in Westeros, Hodor would own it. He’d have Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts and he would find 5,000 different ways to spell “Hodor.” He would also post lots of hilarious pictures if these parodies from BuzzFeed are to be believed. They feature selfies, kitten filters, and so much Hodoring that all you can do is shake your head and smile.

Check out a couple more sample posts after the break.

Cambot, Gypsy, Tom Servo and Crooooow are going to be back if Joel Hodgson has any say in the matter. It all comes from an interview that Wired did with Hodgson while covering the history of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Here’s the relevant exceprt:

[Wired:] But this year Mystery Science Theater may finally get a long-­rumored, heavily anticipated reboot. This spring Hodgson is hoping to start a new online incarnation of the show, one that will feature a fresh (and as-yet-unannounced) host and cameos from many MST3K alumni.

Hodgson: I’ve talked to a bunch of fans about their lives and what MST3K means to them. I’m overwhelmed by how people took to that show. It really affected them. I thought, if enough people still love it, maybe we can bring it back.

Even avid viewers sometimes don’t realize that every major role in the show had been swapped out over time. So in my mind, the show is built to be refreshed with new people and new ideas. It’s like Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle as it applies to MST3K: If it doesn’t change, it’s not the same show. And fortunately for us, as long as there are movies, there are always going to be cheesy movies.

Indeed. With fodder like Zombeavers and Sharknado II on the way, there’s plenty to keep them busy.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 doesn’t open in theaters until June 13th, but if you just can’t wait that long, we’ve got the first five minutes of the movie for you right now. This trailer might replace your longing for quidditch with a serious yen for dragon racing with Toothless and Hiccup (unless you’re a sheep). Dragon racing does not look fun at all for the sheep.

treasure header

Playing Legend of Zelda is fun, but how about going on a real life treasure hunt? Once in a while, Redditor evildeadite puts together a treasure chest full of Hyrule booty. The most recent box was filled with stained glass jewelry and Zelda art made from Perler beads. When the box is ready, evildeadite hides the treasure in the woods of Austin. He does it for kicks, and if you want to get a note with a location clue for the next box, you can just message him on Reddit.

One man’s attempt to own every VHS copy of Speed that currently exists has turned into The World Speed Project. The idea was born out of something called the The Jerry Collection in which a guy in LA tried to own every VHS copy of Jerry Maguire.

I don’t want to spend money on this. If a copy’s more than $4, I’ll just steal it. But that’s not going to make me stop. That’d be the same as somebody saying like, “It’s impossible to make the world a good place, so I’m not going to try.” If the idea is awesome, I’m just going to devote myself to it regardless.

The man behind this, Ryan Beitz, already has 550 copies of the movie, many of which he’s storing in a van he plans to turn into a replica of the bus. If you’re so inclined, you can even send your copy of Speed to Beitz and help him with his mission.

all the wow achievements

As someone who plays World Of Warcraft, I’m sitting here is a sort of stunned silence looking at this achievement and thinking “Wow” because I know just the level of insanity this took to complete.

You’re viewing the stats for the first person to unlock all of the 2057 achievements currently available in World of Warcraft (amazingly, there are several runners up who are very, very close as well). He goes my the name of Xnpyko.

It’s going to be interesting to see what happens when Warlords Of Draenor comes out. I’m thinking Xnpyko’s gonna have a few people nipping at his heels.

Check out the current rankings after the break.
