Stones. Cult Films by Kubrick, Tarantino & Wes Anderson Re-imagined as 8-Bit Video Games. Now closing in on 50 episodes, David Dutton’s 8-Bit Cinema series for CineFlix celebrates and critiques the increasing video game qualities of action films.

Cult Films by Kubrick, Tarantino & Wes Anderson Re-imagined as 8-Bit Video Games

Or maybe it’s a nostalgic do-over of a childhood spent watching great films turned into terrible games and your favorite games turned into terrible films. 8-Bit Cinema imagines popular and classic movies turned into NES-era console games, with the movie’s plot imagined as a “perfect run,” as gamers call it. Their version of Guardians of the Galaxy (watch it here) quotes Megaman, Capcom’s 1987 hit game that is still spawning sequels, and confines its action to a platform shooter, which, in a way, describes James Gunn’s film. (But dig that 8-bit version of “The Pina Colada Song,” man!). The film adapts too well to a video game, and that may be its problem. The Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche Explained with 8-Bit Video Games.

Watch Meryl Streep Have Fun with Accents: Bronx, Polish, Irish, Australian, Yiddish & More. Meryl Streep, frequently hailed as one of our Greatest Living Actresses — she claims there’s no such thing — commands a near-encyclopedic mastery of accents.

Watch Meryl Streep Have Fun with Accents: Bronx, Polish, Irish, Australian, Yiddish & More

Others may prepare for their roles by working with a dialect coach or listening to tapes of native speakers, but Streep pushes to the limit, as indicated in the conversation with author Andre Dubus III, below. She not only learned Polish in order to play a troubled Holocaust survivor in Sophie’s Choice, she thought deeply about the way gender roles and period inform vocal presentation. Clearly a lot of effort goes into the performances that leave British critics cheering Streep as she sails above playing fields littered with American actors who dared attempt English accents. Her commitment to her craft is inadvertently to blame for popularizing the phrase “dingo’s got my baby.” How refreshing that this versatile and accomplished actor is not precious about her skills.

Is Easter about Jesus or bunnies? Both, actually

What you probably won't see is much evidence of the Easter story itself, as told in the Bible's four Gospels: that Jesus was arrested, beaten, and hung on a cross to die — a death that is taken to symbolize punishment for all of humanity's sins. His resurrection a few days later, according to the Christian faith, means that all people can be forgiven of their sins and reunited with God. Easter is arguably the most important day of the Church year because, as the apostle Paul says, without Jesus' death and resurrection, the entire Christian faith is "in vain. " So how did Easter go from the day Jesus rose again to the day giant bunnies leave pastel-colored eggs all over your house? The origins of the Easter bunny.
