Star Wars: A New Hope’s ‘Obi Wan & Vader Fight’ Gets BRUTAL!

Damn! This dropped a day or so ago, it’s a fan made film that’s updating Star Wars: A New Hope’s  classic but clunky fight between Obi Wan & Darth Vader. They used bits from the original movie and orchestrated a whole new fight sequence between the two and the results are pretty stunning to say the least. I never really minded the fight in ‘A New Hope’ but was also never wowed by it either.

This video from FXitinpost titled “Star Wars: SC 38” video which means “Scene 38” gives the classic fight more tension, more action and much more danger than the original with out going to far over the top with back flips, matrix back arches etc. Of course due to budgetary restraints you can see some CG spots a bit in the background and obviously they cgi’d Obi wan’s face several times over the stunt actor doing the battle with Vader. That’s all ok, because as you can see the passion behind it, the general idea they’re going for & choreography are pretty fucking incredible. Check it out as it adds a whole new dimension to this sequence in the movie!

One thing I’d like to ad, after watching this video, it got me thinking about how I’d hoped for something like this for an older Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi, squaring off against Kylo Ren or The Knights of Ren. Instead I got my hopes and expectations “subverted” by director Rian Johnson. It’s odd that fans are more capable these days of giving fans of Star Wars, material that they might actually find more exciting than a multi billion dollar corporation can. I think Disney Star Wars needs to pay attention to videos like this so we can avoid uninspired scenes like this next one I’m posting, where an iconic character we haven’t seen for 30 plus years is replaced with as a ‘hologram’ & sorta “battle” for 30 seconds:

Sal Buscema’s Greatest Hits: Anatomy of the Most Powerful Comic Book Punches!!

Sal Buscema has been one of my all time favorite comic book artists ever since I was just a little kid! His name is synonymous with The Incredible Hulk as one of the longest artists ever on the classic book as well as drawing much of the Hulk-ified Defenders comics way back in the day. The guy is a legend. Period. Well one of my favorite things about his artwork in the comics is the classic Buscema powerful punch! He loves to draw incredibly painful punches that send both heroes and villains flying upside down in the air straight at the reader! It’s really his trademark, so let’s take a good long look at some of Buscema’s greatest hits in all their glory!!!

And finally just a few non-flying Sal Buscema punches that totally look like they hurt big time!

Phew! My head hurst just looking at all these painful punches! Thanks to 80 Page Giant Blog for many of the images!!

Well what would happen if these two losers battled it out? Wonder no more cuz here you have it!!! Enjoy!

 

Let’s Get Ready To Rumble! The Greatest Cartoon Brawls Part 6!

So in my opinion The Secret of  Nimh could easily be the best animated movie ever! It really doesn’t get any better- an epic, intellegent story, Don Bluth‘s absolutley stunning animation and some serious ass kicking action to boot!

Seriously rewatch this movie if you haven’t seen it in a while and you WILL not be let down! I wish we could get Bluth back to focus on another amazing movie- let’s not forget he animated Dragon’s Lair and Space Ace too both incredible classic 80’s arcade games! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find a fight sequence of better quality to put here-but the final battle between the evil rat Jenner & the heroic Justin is one of the best cartoon battles ever!

Let’s Get Ready to Rumble…eh..kinda..The most Un-Epic Cartoon Brawls! Part 1

So I’ve put up some pretty epic cartoon fights lately, at least I think so! I’ve several more planned to post up here as well to get the adrenaline pumping too. But what about those totally un-epic cartoon battles??

Well look no further because now I’m on a mission to bring you some of the most god awful cartoon brawls I can find! Believe me there are alot of them! So first we’ll start with a pretty crap-tastic cartoon battle between Spider-man, Electro, the Green Goblin and The Vulture! This sounds like a dream battle huh? Well get ready to be severly unimpressed with this ridiculous 4 way snooze fest! Good thing Spidey mastered ventriloquism!

Let’s Get Ready To Rumble! The Greatest Cartoon Brawls Part 5!!

Ok well I am not really sure if anyone really gives two shits about cartoon brawls but I’m keeping up this thread cuz I do! Hey when you’re bored you’ll search for just about anything on You Tube right? Well when you mention a cartoon fight there’s one character who definateley likes to get rowdy-Popeye! Popeye has kicked so much ass in his time it’s absolutely unbelievable! He’s been doing it for decades!

Pratically ALL ol’ Pops does is kick ass every day of his life! He deals with alot of B.S. contantly from Brutus and constantly keeps giving him chances to prove himself to not be a total douche but ends up having to waste him literally almost every day of his damn life! So let’s take a quick look at a good video which compiles some good ass whoopings delivered by Mr. Eye himself!!
