Another Unbox-King video? Sacre bleu! This blog is becoming an altar to commercialism! Why can't it represent a faith with an all-powerful diety that nobody seems to really understand? Why not Cthulhu?

Just look at that rumbly tumbly behemoth!

Boy oh boy, nothing quite gets ya salty like a string of near losses in Smash Bros!

I was playing Smash and, while I rotate between about four characters, my friends usually have one or two mains they use obsessively. This can be maddening when you lose over and over in three player smash because your friend's Metaknight gameplay keeps you from ever getting the knock out on a corner camping Robin or Samus.

The salt was real. And that's okay.

Jurassic Park is an incredibly stupid but gloriously "awesome" concept that is saved by a handful of memorable performances and fantastic dinosaur puppets/CGI.

I really don't mind making enemies over nostalgia.

But the fact that people are freaking out about this new Jurassic World film being silly or scientifically inaccurate, I want to remind you of the all-female frog hybrid dinosaurs from the first film that took place at a park with incredibly poor security rather than being a poor concept because "uh, uh, um, life uh finds a way".

Jurassic World will probably be as silly as the first film. Good.

There is a line between racist comedy and comedy that uses ridiculous stereotypes to comedic effect.

I'm not sure what side of the line this sketch lands on.

Just like getting a musical on last Halloween weekend, getting another Star Kid musical on Valentine's Day weekend is certainly a pleasant surprise.

The Trail to Oregon is an uproarious parody of the classic PC game, The Oregon Trail, complete with a farm family with names like "Crab Hole" and "Mouthface", a crappy wagon pulled by a deformed oxen, and all of the hilariously messed up things that happen along the trail. Check it out if you love musicals, simulation and/or Manifest Destiny. Wait what?

Also check out their last musical which had the thesis: Podracing is the only thing Anakin Skywalker was ever good at.

And remember to check out the incredible Sci-Fi film parody, filled with bits from Starship Troopers to Bug's Life, from Starkid:

Also, make sure to check out the definite must-see for fans of Batman, fans of Starkid, or fans of musicals is "Holy Musical B@man!" their latest and most awesome show. You can watch the whole thing by clicking the link below.

But my favorite is probably the amazing Disney parody, with a focus on Aladdin, that they wowed their fans with last year:

Or if you want to go back to the original hits and some Harry Potter, check out A Very Potter Musical and/or its Sequel. They have a number of other productions that are definitely worth seeking out, as well.
