A filmmaker makes a mark, while lip syncs seem the order of the day
If you thought the first three Mad Max films were high-octane, then you’d best strap yourself in before watching even the trailer of Fury Road. Starring Tom Hardy as Max, in a get up similar to Bane’s, and Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa, this two-and-half minute teaser is pure adrenaline and fans will be happy that George Miller (director of the original 1979 film) is back and is not holding anything back. It starts off on a crazy race through futuristic desert wastelands, complete with rocket and flame-throwing guitarists. This one even hints of a proper plot involving warlords and sex slaves. The film releases on May 15.
Fans of House of Cards will not be pleased by this troll video, but if they have humour they’ll secretly love it. With the F.R.I.E.N.D.S theme song, I’ll Be There For You, as the background, YouTuber Leah MacCarthy weaves in snips from the past few seasons of House of Cards to match the lyrics. And while Frank Underwood’s job certainly is not a joke, his love life is perhaps DOA, thanks to his rocky relationship with wife Claire. The video makes it much more loving and far more enjoyable than the original tune in of the political drama. Well worth the watch, especially if you are a fan of both shows.
No need to lament if you are a Jeremy Clarkson fan or a Zayn Malik one. While one was forced to leave BBC and the other chose to quit One Direction, the Internet has gone wild with innovative memes of the two. Most of them though see Clarkson taking up Malik’s spot in the boy band. Our favourite of the lot is a parody video which slaps the former BBC host’s face on the What Makes You Beautiful music video, instead of the lanky 22-year-old. Hilarious due to Clarkson’s vast choice of facial expressions available to the creator, this one is a must see.
