SR Geek Picks: ‘Django’ Guilt, ‘Looper’ Problems, ‘Star Wars’ ABCs & More

Viva Spider-Man 1989 fan film

This is the perfect tribute to the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon, specifically the 2nd and 3rd seasons produced by Ralph Bakshi. This is essentially the 1967 cartoon in live action, how cool is that?

This great student film was created by Jim Kreig, who would soon go on to be an animator for Spider-Man TAS and various other animated projects still to this day!

This fan film takes very specific visual homages and story beats from several episodes of the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon: Kingpinned, Criminals In The Clouds. Try to spot what they are..


Who Called?

NBC called. It wants its office satire back.



The Good, the Bad and the Ugly on directing in Hollywood. And what’s cool about doing it yourself, independently. Do you agree with Joe?

  1. Looper Spoiler:

    They mobsters didn’t “casually shoot the wife”. The goon shot the wife, because he thought she had a gun in her hand, while she actually had garden scissors with a pistol grip design. He was mistakenly trying to defend himself. That’s why he looked so surprised afterwards, when his eyes darted to the garden scissors. I hate it when people who make these kinds of videos don’t pay attention… it kinda defends the purpose of being a smartass about nitpicky stuff like that.

    • i never take these videos or the honest trailers seriously. i just watch them because they are funny

      • yes these movies and honest trailers I think aren’t meant to be taken seriously. it does bug me how much people nitpick looper tho. That movie was soooo boss. People get all technical about it but it was really really well done start to finish.

    • “Lighten up, Francis.” There are inconsistencies in every film, especially those involving time travel, and I thought the “Everything Wrong with Looper” video was funny. The guy is just having fun pointing out some of the flaws with the film. It’s just a movie, so no need to get upset about somebody poking fun at it.

    • There’s several stuff that was mentioned that he just didn’t understand. But it’s okay, the film’s awesomeness withstands all of that

    • *defends = defeats. No idea how that typo happened.

  2. Viva Spider-Man was brilliant.

  3. Most of these things these people find with films are just issues they have with the film, nitpicking over irrelevant items, and not real problems with the films. In any case, no film is perfect and nitpicking over them is not going to make them any better. It’s not like anyone who was involved in the production of the film is going to retroactively fix these perceived “problems” with the films. They are what they are and no amount of detailing is going to do anything to change that. It’s best just to accept them for what they are and not what one would like them to be.

  4. The batman one is hilarious

  5. I’ve never even heard of that ‘Upsidedown’ movie, the trailer looked pretty cool (French film). Pretty decent cast. I’ll have to see if it’s available at my local rental store (or maybe Netflix it).
