This Video Figures Out How Much It Would Cost To Create 'Jurassic Park'

Who would have thought that populating an island with extinct animals would be so expensive? If the only thing keeping you from developing your own Jurassic Park was the uncertainty of the cost, I'm happy to say that you can now get to building. Courtesy of Fandango, a video has been assembled that allows us, with very little precision whatsoever, to determine how much a Jurassic Park would be for us. It turns out it wouldn't be cheap. It's far more money than most of us have. Did we need a video to tell us that? Not really, but if we all pooled our money, we'd probably have enough to build it. So leave your PayPal email in the comments, and I'll send you an invoice for your share of the park (1/4 raptor). Here's the video. (A.V. Club)


Check Out This Supercut Of Blockbusters, Recreated Using Only Stock Footage

See if you can even notice a difference! Wouldn't it be great if we could make our own Hunger Games without having to even pick up a camera? Surely, someone's already captured on film something close to our vision, so why recreate the wheel? At least, that's the thinking that went into this supercut of blockbusters that have been recreated using stock footage. It's amazing how close you can get to the actual work! (No it isn't.) Take some delight in knowing that this cut was actually assembled by Dissolve, a stock footage company. They stand behind their principles. Anyway, it's Friday. Turn off the thinking cap and enjoy.

'The Simpsons' Goes 'Game Of Thrones' (Video)

'The Simpsons' is awesome again, if only for a moment. With the second season premiere of Game of Thrones just four weeks away, our withdrawal is baying inside of us. We want it now and The Simpsons isn't doing anything to quell that hunger. Posted here is the entire intro to last night's episode that sends up the animation style used in Game of Thrones' opening credits. However, instead we travel to the "kingdoms" of Springfield. If only the entire episode parodied Game of Thrones. It would be The Simpsons first talked about show in eight years. Always good to see the monorail getting some use.


Here's A Video Of Every 'Game Of Thrones' Death

Don't worry - it stops at season three if you're not caught up completely. Game of Thrones is a violent show. (You must think I'm an idiot for pointing that out, but every article needs an opening line.) How violent? According to some guys at Digg (remember Digg?), it's 5,179-deaths-in-three-seasons violent. oF course, a lot of that takes place with a huge fire, but still. That's a lot of deaths. Relieve the magic, the stabbings, and the molten-gold-poured-on-heads one more time with this fun clip, and be glad you live in a safer, more secure place. Like 2014 Detroit.


Thank The Lord For This 25-Minute "Game Of Thrones' Recap Video

Something about the complex nature of Game of Thrones plus an inability to comprehend much of anything on Sunday nights has left many with no idea what's going on heading into the GoT premiere this weekend. Lots of stuff going on. Stuff that I can't spoil, but this video sure can. So take a look (a 25-minute look, but that's still better than re-watching the series because you were on your iPad the whole time it aired) and get up to speed for the big premiere. Historically the show doesn't show much mercy to those who can't keep up, so use everything at your disposal.
