live action legend of zelda

The Legend of Zelda series has taught me at least two things: fairies can be frakking annoying and masks are scary. Last month we saw a creepy live action short about the beginnings of Majora’s Mask, and now the guys at Mars Rising have created a live action fan film about a Dark Mask. The powers of the mask sort of remind me of the One Ring; it’s bad news. The short doesn’t have amazing production quality and hits a couple of cheesy notes, but at just over three minutes, it’s still entertaining and worth a watch.

Poor Aquaman. He takes a lot of flack for being useless. I mean really, how often can summoning a seahorse and a bunch of dolphins be the deciding moment in a fight? Watch as he hones his skills, nearly takes out an innocent chandelier, and actually finds little Nemo.

booker catch

Chloe Dykstra and Chris Hardwick teased a BioShock Infinite project last month (with a gross picture considering the characters) and now it’s out in the world. In the game, Elizabeth is constantly throwing things at Booker – coins, medkits, whatever. Dykstra and Hardwick do a fun take on that bit, showing how much crap gets tossed at Booker without him being ready. Plus, Elizabeth keeps finding bigger and bigger items to wing at him.

Take a look at the amusing video after the break.

Fans have been doing everything short of begging Hollywood to make a Wonder Woman movie, but those pleas have been falling on deaf ears. Instead, we’ve got this beautifully shot fan film by Rainfall Films that has the star-spangled heroine fighting armed bad guys and giant beasts. It’s not a feature, but it’s a fantastic effort.

game of thrones stark

Precisely what happened to Benjen Stark is one of the mysteries of A Song of Ice and Fire. He want beyond the Wall with other rangers, and they never returned. Though it’s likely he met his end from Wildlings or the White Walkers, we’re not positive. Von Wong and Five Knights Productions wondered about his experiences and made an excellent fan film depicting what occurred once he got separated from the Nights’ Watch. It’s beautifully shot and definitely looks cold enough to be the North.

star wars junior jedi

Speculation over Star Wars: Episode VII is all over the place, so why not look at something completely off the map? Sam Hale got together some insanely cute Younglings and filmed a trailer for his version of the new film. It features tiny kids in Jedi robes, puppets, and a Sith. It’s the most delightful thing you’ll watch today.

Watch all the preciousness after the break.

bioshock infinite

Some games are so fun and pretty that it’s easy to get lost in exploring instead of completing quests and missions. Incidentally, that’s why I don’t finish many games. One dedicated fan cut together Bioshock Infinite game play into a 3.5 hour long video, and it’s lovely. It’s like watching a movie. It just focuses on the story of the game and cuts out the battles – it completely works and is pretty well done.

Check out the video after the break.

Maybe if we all click our heels three times and wish really hard, we can turn this fan-made trailer into a real movie. It’s directed by stuntman Jesse V. Johnson and features Nina Bergman as Wonder Woman who kicks some evil Nazi butt. This isn’t shiny and pretty, but gritty and real and it would be incredible to see this as an actual movie.
