Emma Watson Delivers A Feminist Rallying Cry To The United Nations

100 points to Gryffindor.

Forgive the mediocre video quality, and don't be scared off by the twelve minute time-stamp. This is one of the most eloquent speeches on gender equality I've ever heard. Brava to UN Women Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson, who gave this speech in support of the HeForShe campaign -- a solidarity movement that aims to bring men into the push for a level playing field.

If Your Walls Are Feeling A Little Empty, Report Here For Some Good-Lookin’ Fanart

Senshi and spectres and saviors, oh my!

In my book, there are few cozier ways to spend a Sunday morning than perusing the internet in search of good art. Today's find is the work of artist Jenn So, who sells fannish prints and other goodies at her Society6 shop. I'm especially partial to the Lara Croft one. I also recommend looking very, very closely at the sheep in the last pic featured here.

Check Out The First Trailer For Big Eyes, Tim Burton’s Upcoming Biopic

From zero to interested in two minutes.

I initially watched this trailer because I wasn't aware that Tim Burton had a new movie coming out. Since watching it, I have fallen down an internet rabbit hole concerning artist Margaret Keane. Keane, it turns out, made quite the splash in the pop art scene of the 1960s, but her husband got the credit for her work.

This Parkour Tribute To Classic Video Games Gets A Perfect Score

I feel tired just watching this.

You will undoubtedly think that this video looks fake. It has to be fake, your brain tells you. Yes, parkour expert Jason Paul is running and jumping and flipping like a boss, but something about it looks off. Trust me here -- the reveal is fantastic. Enjoy.

Our First Video of Episode VII’s Millenium Falcon, Complete With…Batmobile?

The scoundrel we deserve, but not the one we need right now.

She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. And by "it," I mean the little Tumbler tucked away on the Falcon's belly.

A Crash Course In Mass Effect’s Creative Influences and Easter Eggs

So THAT'S the deal with Shifty Looking Cow.

Here's a fun fact not mentioned in this video: I have been playing ME3 multiplayer off and on for two and a half years, and I have yet to unlock a single Asari character. I don't even care what class it is at this point. I just know that multiplayer mode has it out for me.

A Visual History of Stop Motion Animation [VIDEO]

So. Many. Frames.

Stop motion fascinates me, mainly because I know full well that I wouldn't have the patience for it. This quick watch whisks us through stop motion movies old and new, from King Kong to The Boxtrolls. I find myself struck with a powerful need to rewatch The Nightmare Before Christmas.

KANEDA! WHAT DO YOU SEE?!

Aside from some fantastic aurorae and a few minor satellite problems, the solar flare that left our sun on Wednesday probably won't be affecting us Earthlings much. However, it is absolutely stunning to look at.
