  1. Father/Daughter Team Expertly Recreates Jurassic Park in Stop Motion

    Hold onto your bricks.

    Paul Hollingsworth wanted to prove to his daughter that she could do anything with over $100,000 worth of LEGO—they spared no expense—and boy did he ever succeed. Their animated, abridged version of the original Jurassic Park nails the important moments from the original with all the personality and block jokes you'd expect from a LEGO production. Hailee Hollingsworth must be one clever girl.

  3. Shoot for the Moon Is a Remarkably Poignant Short Film About Space Exploration

    Why not try a trampoline, Sal?

    People get so wrapped up in what's going on in the world around them that they often forget the rest of the Universe and how important it is for our future that we explore it. That's what Spaceman Sal faces in Shoot for the Moon, in which he tries to get to the Moon by any means necessary despite a lack of support from those around him.

  5. Marcel the Shell Returns In Marcel the Shell With Shoes On, Three

    Life's a party. Rock your body.

    By my count it's been nearly three years since Jenny Slate's Marcel last shared his teeny-tiny worldview with the good people of the Internet, but the shell has learned a lot during his hiatus. Did you know shrimp are the idiots of the sea? Or that some guys can eat an entire grape?

    Get your hands off me, you—oh, just watch them.

  9. The Mary Sue Interview: George Lucas In Love Director Joe Nussbaum (Plus a Giveaway!)


    The year is 1999. Everyone's freaking out over Y2K and recovering from The Phantom Menace. Joe Nussbaum, graduate of George Lucas's alma mater USC, puts out a short film called George Lucas In Love. Maybe I'm just projecting, as someone who can remember getting some heavy use out of her VHS copy, but if you were a Star Wars fan back in the early, Wild West days of the Internet, chances are you saw it. A Shakespeare In Love parody about ol' Uncle George, George Lucas In Love was massively successful (see: It was the top-selling movie on ickle baby for nearly three months, outselling even The Phantom Menace, which is pretty impressive for a nine-minute short) and got Nussbaum a leg up into the film industry: He's since had a flourishing career on TV, most notably with MTV's Awkward.. 15 years (yes, it has been that long) after its initial, pre-YouTube debut, George Lucas In Love is finally entering the 21st century with an HD release on iTunes. Nussbaum took the time to chat with us about George Lucas In Love and offer his advice on how other creators of geeky shorts might replicate his success. And! We're also giving away a George Lucas In Love poster, done in the style of the legendary Drew Struzan and signed by Nussbaum. Scroll to the bottom to see how you can win.

  10. Idris Elba’s Directorial Debut Is A Short Film About ’70s Funk, Soccer, and Nerd Love [VIDEO]

    Submitted For Your Approval

    I think my favorite part of Idris Elba’s short film Unstoppable, a collaboration with World Cup sponsor Pepsi, is that in the final scene, after Nerd Boy’s taken Nerd Girl’s glasses off and told her "Your eyes look beautiful"… her glasses are back on. I assume Elba cut the scene where Nerd Girl explains that she actually needs her glasses to see, plus the whole "female nerd takes off her glasses and suddenly OMG she’s pretty!" trope is both stupid and extremely tired. That's how the nerd girls I know behave. (via: Indiewire) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?
