Movie awards season is upon us and the National Board of Review is first out of the gate with a huge, but amazing, surprise. They’ve named Mad Max: Fury Road the best picture of the year.
The James Bond movies and novels aren’t exactly short on weirdness—Bond’s villains tend to hatch crazy schemes that revolve around hypnotizing women to love chickens. But if you want real insanity, you have to reach beyond the movies and books.
A few days ago, a drone captured this eye-popping video of the world’s worst traffic jam on the G4 Beijing-Hong Kong-Macau Expressway. Blame foggy weather if you like, but physics says it all comes down to a question of density — namely, an unusually high number of people returning to Beijing after a week-long holiday…
The fifth Mission Impossible movie comes out on Friday—and you’ve already seen the absolutely batshit, life-threatening stunt where Tom Cruise hangs off an airplane in flight. The without-a-net, potentially deadly stunts have become a trademark of the series—see for yourself, with our video roundup.
Batman’s chosen mode of transport has evolved a lot over the years. From swanky car to Tumbler, and even armored tanks. But with a new, heavily armored Batman in town in DC’s Batman comics, there needs to be a new Batmobile to match—and it looks completely, hilariously over the top. Bat-Truck, indeed.
It's Thanksgiving, which means it's time to be thankful for morons who attempt to fry their own turkeys. Here they are: The very best of the biggest Turkey Fryer Fails we found on the internet. Be safe!
A casual, innocent, totally-not-heated at all disagreement between two grown men, in Russia (sarcasm, no such thing exists), devolved into a completely nuts Wild West-style shootout, because Russia. And somehow, nobody got shot. Jesus Christ.
What if video game legend Sonic the Hedgehog existed in the real world? It would probably look something like this. And this is disgusting.
Seeing any car destroyed is heartbreaking. Seeing a car being shoved into the gaping maw of a shredder to feed its ravenous, never-ending hunger is downright scary. I'm not sure if the screaming was coming from the car being eaten alive, or from myself.
China deserves all the congratulations in the world for landing its first spacecraft on the Moon. It's a big deal – both for China and humanity at large. But can somebody please explain why the background image at this exhibit for China's recently deployed Yutu Rover depicts a massive mushroom cloud over Europe?
Shotguns are not allowed through airport security. But what does that matter if you can build one from items purchased in an airport gift shop? The break-action shotgun pictured above was made from Red Bull cans, a hair dryer, batteries and a can of Axe body spray – and it can blast a handful of pocket change through…
No, really, that's what this is. Plus a lot of fire. Apparently, for the truck engine to start, it has to burn down half the stage at this show.
Science fiction and fantasy movies are full of amazing visuals — but the coolest thing about any SF film is usually that there's a real live human being in the middle of all that overwhelming strangeness. We want to see ourselves, in all our human frailty, juxtaposed with the danger and mystery of fantasy — and…
I slowly make my way down a hallway lit only by the glow of a few TVs strewn about the floor. As I creep forward, so does a figure on the screens. The footage is a live feed of myself projected onto each television. But I can't focus on that now, because my bare foot just stepped on what feels exactly like a condom.…
This honor goes to the October 1977 issue of Dirt Bike magazine, which had an authoritative Darth Vader looming large over his trusty dirt bike, "Droid." The fact that such a pairing never made it to The Empire Strikes Back just reeks of wasted potential.
