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

I know that there is a joke about our tax dollars hard at work that gets even more poignant when it’s done by the IRS and they spend $60,000 to make a really bad Star Trek video.

Please run from your houses! The end has come. Somehow a second Birdemic has gotten made as we discussed before. Now we have a trailer for the menace to society. Still features main of the same actors from the first one, but somehow they’ve gotten access to the Universal Studios backlot for the Jaws ride. Graphics are somewhat better. If you mean they upgraded from a 386 to a 486 computer. (Old Nerd joke.)

Below is are a couple of great videos. A while ago College Humor did a great fake Dora the Explorer trailer. Now because of popular demand they have made it into a short miniseries. Below is the trailer for the miniseries as well as the first part.

Next we have the first part of a series of shorts for DC nation from a comic that was originally in the 1980s (?). This is the first part of 7 but it does look pretty fun.

Lastly, this is a video I forgot to mention in the show, but here is a great video of what life would be like for a man without the internet.
