The Fast and the Furious – Final Race – Homemade with Toys

The Fast and the Furious popularized underground racing, drifting, and Paul Walker’s hair. Homemade Movies has included all this and more in our ambitious recreation of the final race between Dominic (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker) from the original film. This is what happen’s when adults play with Matchbox cars, toy trains, and a miniature set that makes even Mr. Rogers jealous.

Hobbit Hole Cake

Hobbit Cake 570x570 SR Geek Picks: Arkham Origins Trailer, Gollum Sings Taylor Swift & More

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole and that meant comfort.

  1. I saw the monster scale earlier and thought “wow, Clover’s massive but I still wanna know what a full grown version looks like”.

    Also, excited for the new Arkham game.

  2. i am so ready for the next batman. i was really hoping for arkham world. but what really worries me is that rocksteady is not handling the game. it aint broke, so dont go trying to fix it. im hoping for the best. like crossing fingers, toes, braiding my hair and crossing that kind of hoping its good

  3. i only came for smeigal…the guy kinda ruined the song. It would have been better if you just made the video to lord of the ring & hobbit clips.

  4. Is that not Dead Pool on the Batman Cover? Isn’t Dead Pool a Marvel character? I love all the new super hero films but have never really kept up with comics.

  5. Never mind, I checked and that guy is “Death Stroke” pretty much the same character IMO.

  6. Got a chuckle out of the He-Man comic
