In the past I’ve mentioned the work of Ryan Wieber. He’s a hobbyist who makes lightsaber duel movies. His last one was very well done and showed a lot of polish, but since then he’s gotten even better.
I like that they avoided the mistakes common to a lot of fan-made stuff. They don’t engage in any dialog or try to establish setting or motive. While a total lack of acting ability and clumsy fan-written dialog can really give a film the authentic Episode III feel, these short movies don’t have enough time to build a story. So, they wisely left it out and focused on the dueling, which is why everyone watches these things anyway.
The fight shows a lot of imagination. They keep it varied and interesting, and don’t just try to re-hash what we’ve seen in the movies. They are also really fast. The speed of this battle is similar to that of the fight between Obi-wan and Annikin in Episode III. It must take a lot of practice to get their routine down to the point where they can perform it this cleanly.
Spec Ops: The Line
A videogame that judges its audience, criticizes its genre, and hates its premise. How did this thing get made?

Silent Hill Turbo HD II
I was trying to make fun of how Silent Hill had lost its way but I ended up making fun of fighting games. Whatever.

What are publishers doing to fight piracy and why is it all wrong?
Gamers Aren’t Toxic
This is a horrible narrative that undermines the hobby through crass stereotypes. The hobby is vast, gamers come from all walks of life, and you shouldn't judge ANY group by its worst members.
