Every Day of Groundhog Day in One Day

In celebration of Groundhog Day (and one of my favorite movies of all time, Groundhog Day), you can now watch every single day that Bill Murray relives in the movie simultaneously.

From the creator of the video

I wanted to see what it would be like if the events of the movie “Groundhog Day” all took place simultaneously. The film shows 37 separate days from Phil’s thousands of Groundhog Days in Punxsutawney. Every frame of the movie is used from days 1-37, with the exception of a few crossfades.

The Rise and Fall of Hollywood

YouTube channel Now You See It published a great video about the rise and fall of Hollywood. It’s a short video, so it is quick, top-level analysis that doesn’t get too deep, but it does do a great job covering the more momentous parts of Hollywood as a whole, from moving from the east coast to the creation of big budget blockbusters.

Old Hollywood has always fascinated me (especially the old studio system and mob connections), so this was right up my alley.

Why Do People in Old Movies Talk Weird?

Have you ever watched an old movie and wondered why everyone sounds just a little off? Did people really talk like that? What accent is it? Brainstuff has your answers in the video below.

I’ve always been fascinated with the Transatlantic accent (or Mid-Atlantic accent) and knew it was common in the early 20th century, but never knew how or why it got that way. The video gives a great explanation.

Ghostbusters III by Max Landis

Ghostbusters was a huge part of my childhood. Every time a rumor would circulate of a third movie I would get excited only to be let down. Now, a Ghostbusters reboot is in the works.1 Writer Max Landis 2 posted his Ghostbusters III idea on his site.

Seeing as it appears the new Ghostbusters franchise will be moving away from the previous films, and be a complete reboot, I thought it would be fun to release an idea I’d been kicking around for a third movie, turning the first two into a trilogy. Following my own beliefs about trilogies, it is a completion of the cycle and themes started in the first film, updated for modern film standards. As such, it features a heightening of the first film’s threat, as well as multiple action sequences, and deeper emotional through-lines for the characters.

I never pitched this. It is essentially just fan fiction. Please judge it accordingly; I released it to an overwhelming amount of requests, and also just because I like sharing this stuff. I hope you enjoy.

It’s very sparse, but still very long. If you’re wondering where “all the jokes are” or whatever, just trust that if I actually wrote it, I’d do my best to make this movie very, very funny.

You should definitely check it out.

  1. Worst idea ever, and not because it’s a female cast. You don’t remake classic movies like this.

The Lego Ghostbusters Movie

BrickFun.net paid homage to Ghostbusters in honor of its 30th anniversary and made a short film recreating the movie with Lego pieces. It’s absolutely fantastic.
