‘Best Visual Effects’ is the Academy Awards category that’s most accessible to casual moviegoers. It’s the only category that regularly features film series like Harry Potter, The X-Men, The Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings. It’s the only category that’s judged on the basis of “oh my god, how cool was that?!” That’s why I was pretty excited that supercut maestros at Burger Fiction have put together this compilation of every Best Visual effects winner from 1927’s Wings (not the sitcom) to 2015’s Ex Machina.
Fatal Farm’s Lasagna Cat Is Back! If You Don’t Know What That Means, Click and Learn Why It’s Amazing News!
This week, the Fatal Farm folks began teasing what appears to be the return of John, Garfield, Odie, and the whole crew. It’s been nine years, and the guys have been working in the big leagues (Adult Swim, Key & Peele, etc.) so the quality of the video has jumped significantly.
In the year 2000, we saw an influx of teen-pop artists looking to cash in on the success of Britney Spears, Christina Augilera, *NSYNC, and The Backstreet Boys. One of those teen-pop artists, Hoku, was featured on the soundtrack to the hit(?) film Snow Day.
For the release of the Ghostbusters Reboot, we decided to celebrate by making some cocktails with the Ecto Cooler flavor Hi-C. Ecto was re-released this summer to coincide with the release of the Movie. Yes, we’ve been calling it Ecto, it’s way more fun that way. Anyway, here are the
Last summer, DAPS, along with Don from Arangio Media set out to figure it all out. Then we tried it, children’s cough syrup and all. In this DAPS original video, watch comedians Tim Duffy and Kevin Devlin join DAPS’ Carlo and Dave in making and trying the storied cocktail. How did we come up with our recipe? No, we didn’t make it up like some people on the internet.
Joanna Sloame and the other geniuses at POPSUGAR bridged the gap between stupid humans and dogs. How? By having humans pose like (insta)famous dogs for photos. Brilliant, right? I know.
Heading into an election year, we’re probably going to be hearing a lot about our right to bear arms. What we should be hearing about is our right to Bear Hands. Anyway, Bear Hands is an indie-rock band from Brooklyn, and their official music video for “2AM” is one of the cooler concepts for a lyric video that I’ve ever seen.
Previously on DAPS, we introduced you to opera singer turned pop-bombshell, Giselle and he covers of The Black Keys’ “Fever” and Cat Stevens’ “Wild World.” Today we share an original from this intriguing new artist. After a whirlwind year in 2015, which included performing on FX’s Louie, Giselle is ready to introduce the world to her original music.
Any right-minded person could tell you that the dinosaurs running around in last summer’s blockbuster hit, Jurassic World, weren’t real. A cursory knowledge of how special effects have been applied in the last decade of movie-making would probably tell you that there were some other elements that weren’t actually on set when Colin Trevorrow and co. filmed the picture. What you might not realize is that much of what you saw in the film: water, trees, buildings, people, and pretty much everything else in the movie was nothing more than a very realistic cartoon.
Rick and Morty is one of the most intelligent series on television. Paired with (many) jokes about butts or balls or butts and balls, is an awareness of the deepest subject matter possible. Creators Dan Harmon (Community) and Justin Roiland (Adventure Time) draw from Nietzsche and Camus, to paint a picture of existence that most cartoons (or live-action series) simply never explore.
