‘The Last Of The Mohicans’ Acoustic Cover Might Just Blow Your Mind

The Last of the Mohicans

Here we have yet another incredible acoustic cover of a hit movie’s recognizable score. This time it’s one of my personal favorites, from the 1992 Michael Mann historical epic, The Last of the Mohicans. Be sure to check out the acoustic cover of the Back to the Future theme and the bass guitar cover of the Braveheart theme if you’ve not yet heard them.

The track is titled “Promentory,” from composer Trevor Jones and based on Dougie Maclean’s “The Gael.” The cover is done on acoustic guitar, with two additional guitars (three guitars in total: a standard, a baritone, and a seven-string) and a violin bow used to enhance the cover. You kind of have to see it to believe it. You can do just that below.

Morgan Freeman’s ‘Se7en’ Unboxing Video

Morgan Freeman's Se7en Unboxing Video

Anyone who has spent some time watching videos on YouTube has more than likely come across one or two unboxing videos. For those who aren’t familiar, the videos basically just show someone opening up a package containing some exciting new product, such as the next big video game console or Apple product, for example, so that others can see how the product looks before they get their own hands on one.

Taking this basic idea, YouTube channel NonRandomNonSense has created a brilliant—albeit very dark—parody of the everyday unboxing video. In their version, it’s Morgan Freeman doing the unboxing as his character in the movie Se7en.

If you’ve seen the movie, you have a pretty good idea of where this is going and can watch the video below…and if you’ve not seen the movie, stop reading this now and go watch it.

‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ With and Without Animation (Video)

Bob Hoskins In Who Framed Roger Rabbit

If you’ve never seen a behind the scenes making of video for Robert Zemeckis‘s 1988 live-action/animated hybrid classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit then the video below is a real treat.

The video shows star Bob Hoskins filming scenes for his character’s visit to Toontown, with a comparison look at the scenes in the finished movie. Now…this may comes as a bit of a shock to some of you, but none of the animated characters were actually physically there with Hoskins when the scenes were filmed. Nothing will ever be the same, I know. It’s truly fascinating to see Hoskins work with nothing but a blue screen, a couple of focal points when necessary, and a little assistance here and there, and seeing it gives you a brand new appreciation for his performance.

‘Game Of Thrones’ Author George R.R. Martin Wrote For ‘Beauty and The Beast’ TV Series

Beauty and the Beast starring Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton

You may know that Ron Perlman was a beast long before he donned the horns and red skin of Hellboy, and that Linda Hamilton was certainly a beauty before she became the iconic Sarah Connor in the Terminator films, but did you know that one of the people at the reins of their rise to fame in the Beauty and the Beast TV series on CBS was George R.R. Martin?

That’s right — before penning the slaughter of entire families in his A Song of Ice and Fire books, which were adapted into HBO’s Game of Thrones, Martin was juggling a delicate love story during an era where violence on television was limited to fake bullet wounds and energetic shoving matches.

Vanilla Ice In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze

If you’re a fan of the Ninja Turtles and the movies based on them made in the ’90s, then you’re familiar with “Ninja Rap,” the song performed by Vanilla Ice in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze.

Recently a new commercial for Ninja Turtles-themed Kraft Mac & Cheese arrived featuring Mr. Ice and the song. Over two million views have already been registered for the video in just a couple of weeks.

You can see the commercial, a behind the scenes video, and the original scene from the movie below.

Chris Farley As Matt Foley 3 Years Before ‘Saturday Night Live’ (Video)

Chris Farley as Matt Foley on SNL

If you were a fan of Saturday Night Live in the ’90s, you are no doubt familiar with Matt Foley, the motivational speaker character played by the late Chris Farley. Considered to be one of the all-time greatest SNL characters/sketches, it made its debut in 1993 and would make many appearances over the years after that.

But SNL is not where the character was born. No no, Farley was screaming about living in a van down by the river long before the character was first used on the big stage. Farley used to be a member of Chicago’s Second City sketch/improv comedy group, where he also played Matt Foley.

Below you can watch a video of Farley doing the Matt Foley character for Second City in 1990—three years before it was first used on SNL. The sketch is very similar to that first and best known version we saw on SNL, which also featured David Spade and Christina Applegate.

‘Doctor Who’ Star Matt Smith In ‘In Bruges’ Deleted Scene (Video)

In Bruges Header Image

Martin McDonagh’s In Bruges is one of my all-time favorite movies. It’s dark and twisted and funny and not a movie you can easily forget.

Though I love the movie, I’ve never seen any of the special features. And as it turns out, fan favorite Doctor Who star Matt Smith had a role in a flashback as a younger Harry, the role played by Ralph Fiennes, that was ultimately cut from the final film. After watching the scene you can see why it was cut, but it’s still cool to see.

You can check out Matt Smith’s deleted In Bruges scene below, but be warned: it does contain some violent content and should be considered NSFW.

The Wolf Of Wall Street Header

Everyone enjoys a good mashup, and today brings a pair of very interesting ones for you to take a peek at while news is slow.

Both of the mashups involve the trailer for the latest Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio film, The Wolf of Wall Street. The first mashes the audio and music of the Wolf trailer with clips from Pixar’s The Incredibles. The second uses audio from the Disney not-so-classic 1994 flick Blank Check, and mashes it with the music and style of the Wolf trailer.

You can check out both videos below.

Most Epic Canned Beans Commercial Ever Involves Space, An Alien, Silliness (Video)

Cinesite Fake Beans Commercial

As the week comes to a close and we prepare for the chaos of Christmas week, it felt like a good time for a little something silly.

A video has been making its way around the ‘net for the past week or so, and if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re in for a treat. It’s a most epic fake commercial for canned beans that’s set in space. It involves astronauts on the moon, an unexpected guest, and a (possibly) unexpected ending.

But the video wasn’t just made for fun, it’s actually a demo by a company called Cinesite to show off their creature animation skills. This isn’t a company trying to get in the game though; they’ve already done work on numerous blockbuster projects including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, John Carter, Skyfall, Iron Man 3, and World War Z.

You can see their faux beans commercial below.

‘Firefly’ Ship Serenity Makes Sneaky Cameo On Another Fox Show

Firefly's Serenity

This comes from back in April, so many of you may have already seen or heard about it. But for those who hadn’t heard of it or missed it such as myself, it’s a pretty cool little tip of the hat to Joss Whedon‘s prematurely canceled Firefly, which was ended by Fox eleven years ago now. (*sniff*) I’m getting a bit verklempt.

Anyway! As a master of the procrastinative arts, the TV shows on my DVR collect and build up faster than the genetically engineered offspring of Sonic the Hedgehog and The Flash goes potty. Adorable thing, really. And even poops little golden rings for some odd reason, so yeah…I suppose everyone is a winner.

One of the shows I attempted to catch up on a bit recently was Seth MacFarlane‘s very own Fox animated comedy American Dad! And in watching a late April episode titled “The Full Cognitive Redaction of Avery Bullock by the Coward Stan Smith” I noticed something that warmed my geek heart. A little model of the crew’s ship in Firefly, named Serenity, floating behind Roger the alien’s head.

You can check out the Easter Egg below.
