If you enjoyed our last NBA parody video trailer for Dumb and Dumber with LeBron James, then you’re going to really enjoy this Rush Hour 4 parody video with Kobe Bryant and Jeremy Lin.  The Rush Hour series is one of my favorite comedy series – not as good as the Shanghai Knights/Noon one, but excellent nonetheless – so this parody video made me really wish this movie was actually happening.  On that note, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan really need to team up again – like soon!  Enjoy this stellar parody video – as always more after the link below!

“Shut the FRONT door!” I don’t know what’s the best part about this already-viral video: the fact that at only 100 pounds and just five feet tall, former D-1 gymnast Kacy Catanzaro makes the American Ninja Warrior final obstacle course look like a joke, or that the two announcers may have stolen the show with their Dodgeball-esque comments and jokes.  Regardless, if you haven’t seen this video, it is well worth the seven minute run time. More comments on just how freaking hard some of these obstacles that she demolished below!

While we don’t usually journey into the world of sports here at SQ, the chances are much higher if it involves pretty much anything basketball related.  But when you mix in Dumb and Dumber, one of the Holy Grail comedy movies of all-time, with basketball – there’s absolutely zero way we’re passing up on talking about it.  If you haven’t heard that LeBron James recently spurned the Miami Heat and the rest of the basketball world to return to his home in Cleveland, then you are probably the only person on earth that won’t appreciate this insanely awesome, and somehow perfect-quality parody video featuring King James as the legendary Lloyd Christmas.  If you watch one video this week, make it this one.  “You’ve been wearing two pairs of gloves this entire time?”  “Yeah Harry, we’re in the ROCKIES!”

I think everyone and their mother’s (well, maybe not mine) know what the Harlem Shake flash dance phenomenon is by now, as they’ve been one of the more popular Internet fads in recent history.  That being said, I couldn’t pass up posting this one above because for this crazy bride and groom, it’s their last chance to do it before tying the knot.  While I don’t have any regrets about not doing the Harlem Shake at my own wedding last November, you can just tell that the couple’s wedding above probably had a rocking reception afterwards.

Funny, But True Dark Souls 2 Review
Jul201414

The Dark Souls series is one of the best from this or last generation, and I don’t think anyone would be angry if went on a never ending Final Fantasy style release path with more sequels than you can possibly keep track of. Oh, but speaking of angry, yes, you will get angry playing Dark Souls 2; I’m probably the calmest, most patient person you’ll ever meet, but when you have to start all the way over from the freaking beginning after yet another stupid little mistake, controllers will break and profanities will be articulately shouted.  But the reward for success?  That’s what makes this series so legendary, and what makes the review below so hilarious for those who have endured the highs and many, many lows!

Every once in a while when I’m in the beer aisle at the grocery or liquor store, I find myself walking out with an awesomely-large case of Newcastle Brown Ale.  It’s not my favorite beer in the world (still love you LaBatt Blue!), but it’s pretty damn good, and is great to mix in my regular rotation throughout the year.  In a creative, and seriously funny new marketing campaign, actor and comedian Stephen Merchant describes what America would be like if we, the Americans, hadn’t won the war, and the British won.  You need to see this video!

If the United States Marine Corps knows how to celebrate any holiday well, it would be July 4th – both the original holiday celebrating our independence from British rule, as well as the more recent victory against the alien invasion which Capt Hiller (Will Smith) and David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum) so thankfully repelled.  So to honor this stellar beer-drinking, sunburning three day holiday weekend, why don’t we start it off with what we Marines do best: blow stuff up.

Richard Hammond and the Subtle Humor that Makes Top Gear Rock
Jul201402

If we were playing Family Fued, and trust me, you’d want me on your team, what would be the number one answer to the question of what’s the most popular BBC network television show in America?  If you guessed Top Gear, the awesome and always hilarious show about cars featuring Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson, then you’d almost certainly be right – at the very least it would definitely be in the top three.  What makes the show so spectacular isn’t just the fact that these two normal looking guys get to test drive the world’s most expensive cars – that’s an awesome draw, don’t get me wrong – but the fact that the two together are just hilarious.  They’re also pretty funny on their own, as you’ll see from the stellar funny pic below!

You’re not going to believe who tried out for the main cast roles of NBC’s epic comedy The Office.  We’ve already revealed Seth Rogan, but you’re going to have to watch the video to see who else showed up at the audition!  The hilarious thing: the actual cast chosen was perfect, and many to most American television viewers were absolute nobodies at the time.  Must see video!

If you’re soul is searching for some much needed Monday morning motivation before you have to face Lumbergh – or maybe the company 1stSgt -, then look no further than the epicness that is the UH-1Y Huey aerial arsenal.  Firing up to 6,000 rounds per minute, the Huey’s minigun literally lights up the sky at night with rounds pouring down so quickly it looks like spiraling lasers, and the rocket system?  That’s not too shabby either.  They are even more motivating when you watch them in slow-motion; enjoy the video and hit the link below for more commentary!

Every now and then you watch a video and just shake your head. This…this is that time.

What happens is the reporter catches a motorcyclist exiting on an on ramp. Illegal? Yes. The worst thing in the world. No. Potentially lethal? Yes. So, he shouldn’t have done it, but he did.

What you won’t think will happen is that the motorcyclist would park, dismount his bike, then proceed to harass the reporter and film crew. However, the cyclist does this, and then the video gets really entertaining. [Click here to read on!]

New Movie Etiquette

New Movie Etiquette0

Posted like a champ in Read

Last Saturday I enjoyed my first double showing in quiet possibly a decade. It was a man date with my close friend from out of town, and we thought, “Why not?” We both wanted to see Edge of Tomorrow and X-Men: Days of Future Past, so we struck a deal with the Mrs., headed out the door, and soon found ourselves in the comfy confines of reclining theater seats.

As we were waiting for the previews before X-Men, I was reminded by the AMC red circle minions to turn off or silence my phone. My friend and brother-in-films made sure to remind me to turn it off. It was at this point that I was a little taken aback. I never turn off my phone – I’ll silence it – but I never turn off my phone.

So I did. I turned it off. I wasn’t annoyed to the level of Zoolander, but it felt strange to have it off. Then I started to think about all other theater etiquette that I may or may not subscribe to. Here are my thoughts.  [Click here to read on!]
