Real Fake History The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead has taken audiences by storm. Since debuting in 2010, the AMC series based the graphic novels by Robert Kirkman found a core viewership amongst horror fans seeking more realistic and scary shows on TV. But along with it’s great character like Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln) comes questions. Ever wonder how EVERYONE in a Zombie Apocalypse is a natural sharpshooter, zipping headshots like anyone can grab a gun and be Army-material? Real Fake History does. Today Machinima’s weekly mockumentary series examines a crucial battle from AMC’s wildly successful show, The Walking Dead, with the assault on the prison by the Governor and his Woodbury army.

Real Fake History The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises is one of those movies that when it came out, felt epic. The performances, the music, Bane shattering Batman’s back… it was so good, you kinda ignored the gaping plot holes. Then you watched it again and, OH, there they are. These plot holes come up big in Machinima’s Real Fake History, detailing the battle of Gotham City from Christopher Nolan’s concluding part to his Batman trilogy.

Real Fake History The Battle Of Hong Kong

Today on Machinima’s Real Fake History, we take a deeper look into the Battle of Hong Kong Bay from Guillermo Del Toro’s 2013 sci-fi action movie, Pacific Rim. One of the more purely fun movies to come out in a long time, the plot revolved around gigantic monsters (Kaiju) coming out of a hole at the bottom of deep Pacific trenches, and wreaking havoc on cities on our west coast, as well as Asian cities. To stop them, we build gigantic human controlled robots to fight the monsters off. It’s hard not to love a movie where a robot swings a ocean liner like a baseball bat into the head of a monster!

Real Fake History Starcraft 2

In the first episodes of Machinima’s Real Fake History, they’ve tackled epic battles from films like Avengers, TV shows like Game of Thrones, and even video games like “Punchout.” This week, they take the terms “battle” and “games” in a slightly different direction as the focus is on two roommate gamers engaged in an epic battle of “Starcraft 2.”

Check out the episode below.

Real Fake History The Avengers

The Avengers is one of the biggest money-making films of all time, and it actually managed to meet all expectations. It is the benchmark for what comic movies strive to be. So it was only a matter of time before the folks at Machinima covered the climactic Avengers battle in their Real Fake History mockumentaries. When Loki opened a portal allowing the alien Chitauri to fly in to Manhattan, it took “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” to fight them off. This also left the city that never sleeps in ruins. But hey, at least they were able to bring the fight up in every subsequent MCU film.

Real Fake History Starship Troopers

Real Fake History returns with its faux-documentary style to analyze the disastrous attempt to defeat the evil insects of Klendathu, in the totally hilarious and awesome action film Starship Troopers, directed by Paul “Showgirls” Verhoeven in 1997. Starship Troopers is fondly remembered because it fully embraced itself for what it was – a tribute to the B-monster movies of the 50s, with updated 90s special effects. It was totally off-the-wall insane, featuring gigantic alien bugs, thousands of war-crazy space soldiers, gory and graphic violence, and of course co-ed showers! It even has the most B-movie cast in B-movie history featuring Casper Van Dien, Jake Busey, and the great Michael Ironside.

Real Fake History Little Mac

This one hits home, and will for many others my age who grew up blowing into their Nintendo cartridges in order to become “Little Mac,” the hero of Punch Out and later Mike Tyson’s Punch Out. My parents wouldn’t let me keep the Nintendo in my house, so I spent hours in my grandparent’s house upstairs pounding the snot out of villains like Glass Joe, Von Kaiser, Great Tiger, and King Hippo. The folks at Machinima in the latest Real Fake History, now tell us the story of that wonderful young fighter in the green shorts and black tank-top, Little Mac.

Real Fake History Game of Thrones The Battle of Castle Black

The third entry of Machinima’s YouTube series Real Fake History tackles one of television’s most thrilling shows, Game of Thrones. Real Fake History treats film and TV’s biggest battles and fights as the History Channel would treat war footage, with stock footage from the source materials and “interviews” with characters who lived the tale. Long before Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) was Caesar’ed by the Night’s Watch to conclude season 5, he first betrayed the Wildlings and helped lead the Battle at Castle Black against Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hinds) and a massive wildling army that included giants.

Check out the video below.

Real Fake History Kill Bill

My latest YouTube addiction is Machinima’s Real Fake History. Even the opening introductory video is perfect, combining war footage with major scenes from action films/TV shows like Pacific Rim, The Avengers, and Game of Thrones. After introducing their History Channel inspired faux documentary series with Star Wars: The Battle of Endor, they actually upped my geek-fueled fervor by tackling Quentin Tarantino (my all time favorite director), and taking on Kill Bill Vol. 1’s Battle at the House of Blue Leaves… which you may remember features The Bride (Uma Thurman) taking on the Crazy 88 gang of Oren Ishii (Lucy Liu).

Definitely watch the video below.

Where else to start but with the series that might have the world’s largest and most vocal fanbase, Star Wars. The first RFH – Return of the Jedi’s “Battle of Endor.”
