SNL's Wes Anderson parody is pure brilliance

The only thing wrong with this brilliant Wes Anderson parody is its lack of Bill Murray. Other than that, it looks exactly like an Anderson film. The music is perfect, the shots are perfect, Edward Norton's Owen Wilson is perfect...ahhhh, ...


Check out American Psycho with Huey Lewis and Weird Al

So I would totally be down for a full-length parody of American Psycho starring Huey Lewis of Huey Lewis and the News and Weird Al Yankovic, but that may be just me personally. Regardless, Funny or Die released a video that is exactly that,...


Watch Disney Princesses go wild in Spring Breakers parody

Going to see Spring Breakers this weekend? Maybe you should watch this hilarious parody video first (then read our review!). It takes one of the core draws of Breakers (watching former Disney starlets do crazy stuff for money) and exaggera...


Flix for Short: Garlan Hulse: Where Potential Lives

In the same vein as the cool retro marketing Wreck-It Ralph had done for its fictional Fix-It Felix Jr. game, Rich Moore has made a short "documentary" to celebrate WIR's release on home video this past week. Garlan Hulse: Where Poten...


Flix for Short: Movie: The Movie 2V

As part of Jimmy Kimmel's post-Oscar special, he revealed a parody trailer for the sequel last year's Movie: The Movie. 2V doesn't exactly reach the heights of the first one (how could he beat, "Once you go Black Hitler, you never go back ...


Flix for Short: SNL's Djesus Uncrossed

Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live did a great parody of Django Unchained and Quentin Tarantino movies in general. Behold Djesus Uncrossed, with Christoph Waltz as the Man (with No Name) of Galilee. I'm not going to give away any of the...


Trailer: Scary Movie 5

Here you go everyone, the moment almost no one has been waiting for. Ever since it was announced that a fifth Scary Movie was going to be made without Anna Faris, then Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen were stunt casted for some reason, and ...


Trailer: A Haunted House (Red Band)

While the first trailer seemed to borderline entertaining, this new "VIBE exclusive" Red Band trailer seems to go for the kitchen sink...and subsequently loses me. There are sex "jokes" out the wazoo, Marlon's "motherf***ing" introduction ...


Trailer: A Haunted House

I remember there was a time that I looked forward to movie parodies. When the first Scary Movie released, I laughed so hard I almost had an accident (I was also ten). When the sequel came out, that excitement tempered a bit. When the third...


First image of Scary Movie 5 confirms it will be terrible

You know how every Scary Movie is supposed to have a random celebrity cameo who has no business being in movies? Like how Scary Movie 3 had Pamela Anderson, Scary Movie 4 had Dr. "My PhD is For Realsies" Phil, or that Scary Movie ...


The Cult Club: Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat (2002)

[The Cult Club is where Flixist's writers expound the virtues of their favourite underground classics, spanning all nations and genres. It is a monthly series of articles looking at what made those films stand out from the pack, as well as ...


Batman Maybe

This is brilliant. I usually hate popular song parodies, but this... This isn't the Carlie Rae Jepsen parody we need, this is the Carlie Rae Jepsen parody we deserve. Oh, and, uh, SPOILERS for the three of you who still haven't seen T...


Joel McHale out-Fassbenders Fassbender in viral spoof

It's good to know that if Community goes down the toilet without Dan Harmon's hand on the wheel, we'll still be able to get that Jeff Winger flavor from Joel McHale over at The Soup. This video parodies Prometheus's "Meet David" ...


Flix for Short: The Wire: The Musical

If you still haven't seen The Wire yet, you're part of what's wrong with culture. This Funny or Die video, featuring a good deal of the original Wire cast, showcases a fabulous musical where the show's complex themes inherent in ...


New Brave TV spots & bagpipe compilation CD parody

Man, I can't wait to see Pixar's Brave. It's the studio's first princess movie, and she looks like she's going to kick some serious butt. Here we have two new short TV commercials for the upcoming movie, as well as a longer commercial for ...


Scary Movie guys to parody Hunger Games, nobody shocked

I love it when a horrible franchise puts very little effort into their movies, makes a ton of money, and continues on forever. Jason Friedburg and Aaron Seltzer, the directors of such timeless films as Scary Movie, Epic Movie, Date Movie, D...


Trailer: The Pirates! Band of Misfits

Aardman Animations has jumped on the pop-culture band-wagon with this new trailer for their newest claymation movie The Pirates! Band of Misfits - also known as, The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists. The new trailer parodies the si...


Trailer for Movie: The Movie probably not a trailer

Uhhh... So, okay, Jimmy Kimmel Live is responsible for making "I'm f*cking Matt Damon!" a household phrase, and it looks like the show is about to reproduce that magic with Movie: The Movie, one of the silliest effing things I've ever seen...


Kids reenact the Oscar nominees adorably, bitingly

The Academy Awards are irreparably upon us. There's the usual stable of Best Picture nominees that are a combination of films that genuinely deserving to be recognized as among the best films of the year, and then there's th...


Trailer mash-up of The Lion King/Dark Knight Rises

Just before Christmas we had a Sweded version of the Dark Knight Rises trailer, which was a great, inventive, low-rent version of the actual trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. Well, with the new year comes a new fake  trailer. Th...


Sweded version of The Dark Knight Rises trailer

In the great goofy tradition of Be Kind Rewind, here's a sweded version of the Dark Knight Rises trailer. It's essentially a shot for shot, line for line remake of the trailer. A triumphant job overall, especially given the quick turnaroun...


Happy holidays from Siri the serial killer phone

Just in time for the Christmas weekend where plenty of people with enough money to buy one will be getting iPhone 4s in their stockings comes this trailer for Siri. See, the guys over at Rooster Teeth know what is actually up with the voic...


Trailer: The Muppets's Final Parody

Well here it is. The final The Muppets parody trailer. It's been an awesome road and its sad to see one of the best marketing campaigns in a long while come to a close, but on the bright side it means we're that much closer to actually get...


Trailer: The Muppets: Pig With the Froggy Tattoo

With this trailer I believe that we have officially reached the point where the marketing campaign for The Muppets might actually be better than the film itself. I'm not saying the film is going to be bad. Far from it. I'm just saying that...


The Cult Club: Top Secret! (1984)

[The Cult Club is where Flixist's writers expound the virtues of their favorite underground classics, spanning all nations and genres. It is a monthly series of articles looking at what made those films stand out from the pack, as well as t...


The Onion thinks Green Lantern looks stupid. I agree.

It's fun to laugh at how hard Hollywood pushes their films with over the top advertising, but then movies like Green Lantern come along and show why it's often necessary or you run the risk of your film being dead on arrival. I had no idea...


Tara Reid fires the Coen bros., finishes Lebowski 2

Earlier this year, hearts were set aflutter when The Big Lebowski 2 was announced by actress Tara Reid. After all, if anyone would know it's her. Shortly after, Ethan Coen was quoted as saying "I'm glad she's working on it." Tara is remembe...


Captain America trailer gets much needed improvement Pt 2

Remember about a month ago when we posted a remix of the first Captain America: The First Avenger trailer that replaced the soundtrack with the "America, F*ck Yeah" theme from Team America: World Police? Well now YouTube user Cel...


Don't barrel roll away from Star Fox/Wes Anderson spoof

I love video games, non-The Royal Tenenbaums Wes Anderson films, and parodies, so when I stumbled upon this College Humor, it resulted in a trifecta of happy thoughts. The video is a cross-spoof of the Star Fox series and the Anderson/Noah...


The Simpsons make parodies of Oscar nominated animations

Some may argue that The Simpsons have been stale for a few seasons now. But just like the milk I'm attempting to make a metaphor out of, sometimes it's good even past its expiration date... it's just that you'll probably get a bad stomachac...


Kids make serious Oscar-nominated films look funny

We've seen it done with Scarface, we've seen it done with political punditry, and now we get to see kids act out scenes from this year's Oscar-nominated films. I found Black Swan to be surprisingly terrifying, but it becomes a much tamer e...


Yogi Bear gets assassinated in this Jesse James parody

That Yogi Bear film looks pretty awful, huh? I don't think there's any need for this to be made, unless you subscribe to the "Hollywood has run out of ideas and can only repurpose older ideas" school of thought. I certainly couldn't blame ...
