“The Fisherman”

This award-winning sci-fi short film by director by Alejandro Suarez Lozano is JAWS meets ALIEN in the waters off Hong Kong. Mr. Wong is a third generation fisherman in Hong Kong, struggling to keep this tradition alive. One night, he decides to leave the crowded waters of the harbor and fish in calmer waters. His luck changes when he catches something that does not belong to this world!

He tried to get his 6-year-old girl into Star Wars, but it didn’t stick. On a related note, he knows WAAAAY more about My Little Pony than any adult man should know.

In his first ever online course, legendary insult comic Jabba the Hutt brings his years of comic industry experience to you! Ninety Imperial credits will get you lifetime access.

The Three Laws of Robotics

From the excellent webcomic xkcd.com:

“In the last scenario, self-driving cars will happily drive you around, but if you tell them to drive to a car dealership, they just lock the doors and politely ask how long it takes for humans to starve to death.”

In the last version, self-driving cars will happily drive you around, but if you ask them to take you to a car dealership, they’ll lock the doors and politely ask how long humans take to starve to death.

 

“Wanderers” is a short film by Swedish animator Erik Wernquist that features some stunning sci-fi recreations of different locations throughout the Solar System built from actual photos and map data. A detailed breakdown of the various shots can be found at Wernquist’s imgur page.

Again, I highly recommend watching this in full screen with the sound on.

Old Spock vs. New Spock

This Audi commercial, starring both Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto, features two Spocks smack-talking each other, Leonard Nimoy cursing, and best of all, an impromptu rendition of “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.”
