robot chicken: just the good parts
I know, I know. It's been a while... and yes, I have another video to show you. But in my defense, I just finished grading 100 term papers and am currently in the process of writing a 20-page paper on Vertigo (in all its representation/re-presentation goodness). And I will most likely disappear this weekend while I grade 100 final exams. (I'm estimating that my brain will explode by Friday evening.) BUT in the meantime, I want to share with you the funniest thing I've seen all week. The movie geek in me erupted in excitement. The following Robot Chicken clip shows "just the good parts" of movies and TV shows. The beginning of it makes fun of game shows building false intensity, but then it picks up to make fun of Philadelphia, Lawrence of Arabia, The Wizard of Oz, There Will Be Blood, King Kong, and -- my personal favorites -- The Shining and Battlestar Galactica. Seriously, The Shining spoof is amazing, and the BSG spoof includes a special cameo by Ron Moore (how did they even make that action figure?!?) who wears a "Let's Frak" t-shirt.
