“My Geek Confessions – Watching Bad Movies, So You Don’t Have To!”

This week, the trailer for Iron Man 3 came out and it just flat out looks epic! I just hope Pepper doesn’t die…

At first, I was worried about Mockingbird Lane since I’m a fan of the Munsters. But after finally seeing some of the clips of it, I’m sad that it’s not being picked up. I hope everyone watches the TV movie so that it might be able to get picked up.

It’s no secret that Krista and I love Gangnam Style. But it’s fun when you see evidences that it has gone mainstream. This clip is from a team dance from Dancing with the Stars All Stars that was just awesome.

 During the 80s a pair of friends made a shot for shot remake of Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark. They since have gotten some recognition and it’s known as the most successful fan film ever. This trailer that explains it is actually for a book about the movie and it’s success.

I’m not really a fan of Evangelion, but Melissa loves it. Even she can’t explain what is going on in this video. It has an Eva Horse. I call continued sell out. Look at the link before for another video.

Here is another Gangnam Style post. This time its done by first generation Transformers for some reason, but that only makes it more hilarious.

 Even though it’s stuff we’ve seen before, it looks like there will be a Lego Batman: DC Superheroes movie based (or stolen directly from) the Lego Batman 2 game. I’m still excited for it, because it looks amazing.

For Krista, we have the trailer for the second part of the Dark Knight Returns movie coming in early 2013.

Flash mobs are a little played out by this point, but this one was cool because it involves a full orchestra. They hide themselves very well and then play the Star Wars theme.

Lastly we have a video of Zelda playing the different themes from Legend of Zelda on an actual functional Ocarina.
