snape and lily

While I realize that the whole “Snape is a hero” theory is one of those bones of contention in the Harry Potter fandom, this video by YouTuber kcawesome13 will likely give people on both sides of the argument a case of the feels.

The video recuts Snape’s important scenes from the eight Harry Potter films into chronological order to give you a better understanding of the story from his perspective.

It was an interesting watch and, no matter what side you come down on in the fight, there’s no denying that Alan Rickman is utterly incredible.

Check it out after the break.

streetfighter-main

Do you remember that bonus stage in Street Fighter II where you could smash up a car for extra points? Thanks to the magic of the Internet, several people have attempted the stage in real life. We’ve posted those attempts after the break.

They’re actually kind of funny–watching someone jump around like an idiot and try to rip the hood off an old VW tickles me for whatever reason.

boxing-game-kick

I’m not sure if the guy in this video is a ninja, but the flying kick he launches at this arcade game is extremely impressive. While the martial arts action is cool, you don’t get to see the kick in normal speed, you don’t get to see the guy’s final score, and the quality of the video is abysmal. Bummer, I know. But I’m going to guess and say that he did get a high score… and that he probably broke the machine too.

Watch all the spin kicking action after the break…

princess rap battle
This one came to us courtesy of tipster Ashley Bullock, who knows that we like princesses with a twist.

Previously, Whitney Avalon took on Elsa as Snow White in a princess rap battle and got herself frozen. This time, it’s a trilogy battle as Leia takes on Sara Erikson‘s Galadriel.

In addition to playing Leia, Avalon co-wrote, co-produced and co-directed this video with Steve Gossett.

Personally, I like Leia’s rhymes better, but Galadriel definitely has some skills.

Head after the break to see the video.

80's action movie captain america

From the Cannon logo to the incredible voice over to the inevitable appearance of Michael Ironside, everything about this 80’s VHS style Captain America: Winter Soldier trailer is fantastic.

It totally reminded me of the summer I was 16 and spent a lot of time watching rented movies with my boyfriend. Top Gun, Rambo, Terminator, Remo Williams. We watched ‘em all.

This trailer is like that summer plus all the awesome of Robocop and Escape From New York all in one movie.

Check it out after the break and see how many references you recognize.

Oh, to be an astronaut–so much fun with zero gravity! NASA astronauts and amateur filmmakers Reid Wiseman and Steve Swanson (along with ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst) placed a GoPro camera inside a bubble of water that was floating freely on board the International Space Station (ISS). As you can guess, the resulting shots were pretty spectacular. The astronauts snapped some standard footage with the GoPro, but they also filmed the whole affair with a special 3D camera.

Check ‘em out after the break!

batdad

If you’ve seen our BatDad coverage, you know he’s a lot of fun. Heck, BatDad is one of my favorite things on the internet and, I’ll admit, I was starting to worry since he’s been kinda quiet lately. Was BatDad gone for good?

Never fear! BatDad is back with new adventure and multiple sidekicks. It’s fun for the whole family.

Capture

This montage video created by RedKeyMon shows some of the unbelievable stunts that you can pull off in Grand Theft Auto V if you’ve got the skill. There are planes, cars, motorcycles, and even jet skis doing the impossible. What about the laws of physics, you ask? Since when did laws of any kind mean a darn thing in this game?

Watch the video after the break.

destinytrailer copy

Destiny, while still a fun game, was a bit of a let down. Why? Well, I’ll let the latest Honest Trailer sum it up for you.

“The storytelling of Halo, the scope of World of Warcraft and the co-operative fun of Borderlands — may eventually get patched in.”

Yeah, Smosh Game’s Honest Trailer has a pretty good point about all of things that Destiny seems to be lacking. Whether or not you agree that the shooter is “gaming’s hottest 7 out of 10″ as HT so mildly put it, I guarantee that you’ll at least get a kick out of this video.

tetsuya sora

People who can draw have always amazed me. The idea that someone can take a blank piece of paper or canvas, have a vision in their mind, and then create it seems like magic.

That having been said, Tetsuya Nomura is like a wizard when he draws Sora from Kingdom Hearts.

Sure, it’s to promote Kingdom Hearts 2.5, but I don’t even care. It’s just beautiful to watch.
