Relive the Star Wars Trilogy Through the Eyes of Mega Man and The Legend of Zelda

Cinefix
Cinefix

There are about a kajillion ways to watch an enjoy Star Wars. You've got the original movies, the original movie special editions, the prequels, the new sequel, the books, the comics, the animated series, board games, and of course, video games. Then there's the litany of fan-made homages to the seminal series, including those that take a little from column A and a little from column B. Case in point, the latest 8-Bit Cinema video from Cinefix.

For years now, Cinefix has been mashing up movies with retro-inspired game graphics and chiptune scores to put a unique spin on your favorite moments in cinematic history. There are a lot of those moments in the original Star Wars trilogy, so whittling it down to a five-minute video was undoubtedly a challenge. Still, even though every single big sequence isn't accounted for, the remixed films have just enough of that space magic to make it work.

worst marvel five

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

Nobody’s perfect, and just because the House of Ideas has been responsible for some of the greatest spectacles in comic history doesn’t mean they haven’t had their fair share of awful moments as well. This week, we point our all seeing eye of judgment at five of the worst offenders.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Trailer: The End Is Nigh for Marvel’s Mutants

X-Men: Apocalypse
Fox

I’m an old enough nerd to remember when the first X-Men movie came out in theaters. At that time, comic books were not the number one driver of all things in popular culture. Bryan Singer’s X-Men certainly featured all the comic’s beloved heroes and villains, but there did seem like there was a concerted effort to tamp down some of their comic-book-ness. Everyone dressed in black. There was no spandex. The story was grounded in weighty real-world themes like prejudice and vengeance. It was the X-Men you knew, but watered down just a bit. It was a rum and coke, not a shot of gin. X-Men: Apocalypse, in comparison, looks like a bottle of Beefeater.
