Pokémon: Apokelypse

Posted in Pokémon, Satire with tags on September 24, 2010 by The Mommy & Daddy Show

Whether you love it or hate it, Pokémon has had a staying power few could have realized when the franchise debuted back in 1996. Much like Carmen Sandiego, no matter what form you remember best, it all started from a pair of video games released in Japan called Pokémon Red & Green (released internationally as Red & Blue). Owned and published by Nintendo, the franchise is best known for its video games, anime series and films, manga, and card game but has expanded into a plethora of merchandising items. Here is a fake trailer from Ki-Voltage Productions for a live action film, Pokémon: Apokelypse, a decidedly darker interpretation of this multimedia juggernaut.

Pac-Man: The Movie(s)

Pac-Man is one of the most beloved games of all time and there has been talk on the interwebs for a few years of an actual live action film in the works, possibly with comic book-to-film producer guru Avi Arad producing it. As frightening a concept as this is, there are a number of live action parodies of a Pac-Man feature film out there. Here are a few that vary in quality but are all fun nonetheless.

The first is from stanman16. It involves four ghosts trapped in a maze with a giant yellow monster that’s killing them off one by one.

If you enjoyed that, here is some behind the scenes footage.

Next is from Scott Gairdner on his Zoltarkill YouTube channel. According to his website, Gairdner was just hired last month (August 2010) as a writer and director for Funny or Die. Here is his action movie take on the Pac-Man franchise.

This same parody gets the Lego treatment from Michael Inglis. Check out some of his other Lego movies on his website, his YouTube channel or his Dailymotion profile.

Finally, here we find Pac-Man getting the Saw treatment from New York City based Therefore Productions on their comedy blog. This is probably the highest quality video and would make the best film interpretation of the videos presented here.
