Another Term’s End- the Fun Entry

Here we are again, at the end of another term, at least here in Davenport, and so it is time to take a short break and head out for a chance to catch our collective breaths. To that end, I offer up a few fun and interesting youtube clips for your entertainment.

1. Big Bang Big Boom:
This is evolution as seen on a wall painting. I can only imagine how hard it must have been to film this using stop and go techniques over long periods of time.

2. The Passenger:
A film clip in animation about a bookwork stuck on a bus that he might not wish to be on.

3. The Cat Piano:
You know what? There really were cat pianos!

4. Rango: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKi2KzKbjVY&feature=player_embedded
Because you know you want to see a movie in which a chameleon plays a role in helping rid a town of bad guys.

5. The Fall: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhARR-zmTCE&feature=player_embedded
Simply gorgeous, produced by Tarsem, a former video producer who also wrote and filmed the Jennifer Lopez movie “The Cell.”

6. Let Me In: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjavOLdPk1c
I previously sang the praises of “Let the Right One In,” and this is the American remake. While not the same as the original, which I consider a perfect movie, this is also quite good in its own way.

7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:
Because you know it’s coming soon to a theater near you, and you’ll go see it.

Have a great break, even if it is a short one!
