We’ve seen master swordsman Isao Machii battle robots and fried shrimp, but now he’s taking on his fiercest enemy yet—a 100 mph (161 km/h) fastball.

Needless to say, the enemies of the samurai have changed dramatically over the years.

mjolnir prank

Watch what happens when an electromagnetic Mjolnir replica and a fingerprint scanner become key to proving who’s worthy to wield Thor’s weapon.

Interestingly, it’s brains that win this one in the end. Loki would be pleased.

I wonder how those samurai frogs we posted earlier would fare against a horned lizard that gloriously rides a badass mech into battle?

doctor who maisie

The last Doctor Who trailer already had enough tantalizing glimpses to make me shout “WHY IS IT NOT SEPTEMBER, YET!?” and this new one is even more interesting.

More creatures, more Missy, more mysterious Maisie Williams, Daleks, Zygons—Clara with a bazooka. None of it makes sense right now, but we are looking forward to the journey.

Watch it after the break.

That’s not realistic CGI. It’s an actual guy who is part of a viking battle stunt show. Alex Yde has been practicing parkour for 12 years and it comes in handy for his work in the show. He’s been with Puy du Fou in France for three years playing different roles and decided to film one day’s adventures from his perspective.

Dive into the battle after the break.

Everybody talks about the ethics involved in bringing back dinosaurs, but have you ever wondered just how much it would cost to actually build a Jurassic Park? I mean, John Hammond said “We spared no expense” in the first movie, but how much money was he actually talking about?

Fandango Movieclips sought to answer that question in their latest YouTube Video. For the clip, they utilized figures sourced from the operating costs of some of the biggest zoos and parks in the world to provide a theoretical estimate.

The answer? Well, it’s lot. Check out the video after the jump for the breakdown.

batman saber

Back in November, we posted this epic Batman vs. Darth Vader Super Power Beat Down video that imagines what the ultimate showdown between Batman and Darth Vader would look like.

Many of you weren’t happy with the ending.

So, Bat In The Sun has returned with an alternate ending to that first video, which the director calls “the definitive ending”.

Me? I just like the idea of watching Batman and Darth Vader cross paths.

Check it out after the break and let us know which version you prefer.
