Someone suggested we stop spamming up the random image thread with youtube links, and I have conceded to their logic, in the form of the totally necessary random movies thread.

To start us off, how about a nice TED talk?

@Garyn: Well that's interesting.

Olivia, you find the weirdest things.

Observe the gent in the middle of the screen: https://v.cdn.vine.co/r/videos/51CB1444571123453224926523392_2e118fb2c05.5.1.11570017066494365933.mp4?versionId=BIkEDv6RfKTMXJl5Nmxh5lNl_0MQ9Ucv

@Olivia: Sweet. I already saw and licked that first one on Moddb though.

@Ty: It's the Redshirt Effect all over again...

It was marshmallow creme. You can't really get much sweeter than marshmallow creme.

I'm glad I play RL in first-person mode, because man do I look silly.

So were you the one closest to the camera around 0:50? I couldn't make out features real well in that.

Comment on why anyone would want to do anything so stupid looking... evidently not suppressed. ;)

I was the redshirt that lived to the end of the video, yeah.

An excellent question to which I have no logical reply, apart from the fact that was the most fun I've ever had in my life. Or at least in the top 3. Well, not that part specifically, just the night in general.

So, dunno how many people have seen the Star Wars teaser trailer yet, but here it is:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMOVFvcNfvE

I will probably try to avoid the main trailer when it comes out, but I did want to have a general idea of what it looks like. I won't give any opinions on it until other people watch it, if they decide to.

I'm aware of its release but I make a point to not watch any trailers on the internet, I only let myself see them in front of movies in theaters(Because they're impossible to avoid there, plus its just a better atmosphere in general). So, I might see it in four days if they put it in front of Mockingjay, if not then, it'll certainly be in front of The Hobbit next month.

But, far more importantly, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8qw3oWvDpo

Just slightly related to the last picture Garyn posted in the images thread:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f37K0hIv3zk

It literally includes every thing I dislike about Anime... yet is totally hilarious. Especially Obama and Bruce Willis on the wall.

Sure, 'cept real anime is absolutely nothing like that, lol. Well, some of the lamer ones like Dragon Ball Z and Naruto might be a tiny bit like it, but it's still a huge exaggeration.
That intro was pretty funny though.

You mean you actually know enough to know what "real anime" is? How sad...

Hehe. I just like to make fun of Anime, even if generally I don't view it as negatively as I used to. Anyway, there were a couple sequels to that. One involved the Hunger Games which was terrible, the other involved Putin and was hilarious. Anyway...

And creepy shit:

Except for the last one, which is kind of lame.

Anime's just like any other medium, there's great stuff and there's crap stuff and there's everything in between... though TBH, most anime I've seen has actually been pretty awesome.

I skimmed through that video(Muted, I just read all the text), I'd read about all those save for Berzerk and the last one before - interesting stuff though, my favorites are the BEN one(Which will get ruined if you dig much deeper, but it's still kinda fun) and the Polybius one.

And now for something completely unrelated, and kind of slow, but I found this interesting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcLKlPTG97k

*Shrug*

Like I've said, I want to like Anime, it's just there's enough crappy/weird Anime to make me reserved on it. Still do generally like the visual styling (in general, not all).

Anyway, what is it with you and all these motivational/psychological videos?

For the first one, I just found it interesting. For this one, I've just been studying psychology a lot, and that had explanations and differences I'd never heard before, laid out in a pretty simple format that didn't require any previous special knowledge.

But fine, here's a non-psychological but probably-psychotic random video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-m8_cM_SFI

Well, that is indeed odd. Hadn't noticed that edit till just now, when I was on my way here with the intended post of, "Normally I'm not a George Carlin fan, but this is pretty good: http://youtu.be/SKftRlzh2RM "

Dunno if this is really anyone else's kind of thing, but I figured I'd share anyway: https://www.ted.com/talks/eric_whitacre_a_virtual_choir_2_000_voices_strong  Pretty cool stuff IMO.

Then I went and found the videos mentioned in said video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7o7BrlbaDs

Then I found some more made after the TED talk:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3rRaL-Czxw
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8oDnUga0JU
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmJBJV0i928

#4 is my favorite, though if people don't like dubsteppy things they might not like it.

After various recommendations and semi-recommendations, I finally got around to looking into this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c__EdPiU0No

Only about half through, I'm not real impressed yet, but it's a little better than I initially anticipated. Or at least, it got a little better after the first half hour or so.

EDIT: Updated the link with better version.

Anyway, now that I've finished it... if anyone else cares to watch it at all, I'd give it a half-hearted recommendation. It's like 2/5ths of it were good, 2/5ths were boring, and 1/5th was really lame. Most of the boring stuff is in the first half though, so it does get a little better as it goes. All in all the good and bad kind of even out to a general "Okay", and I'd say it's less enjoyable than any of the live action movies, but more so than the 2008 cartoon movie. Make of that what you will.
