Video Round-Up: January 28, 2015

"John Carter is based on a beloved novel, had a huge budget, and was directed by one of Pixar's best. And yet it's still surprisingly sinful given those facts."

Welcome to The Geek Art Gallery's daily Video Round-Up, in which we collect the geekiest videos from around the web each day for your enjoyment. Why slog through page after page of kitten and baby videos to find what you're looking for on video aggregators when you can cut straight to the chase here? Comedy sketches, countdowns, movie parodies, nerdy music, science in action, and supercuts - we've got it all!

CineFix takes us deep inside the classic chestburster sequence from Ridley Scott’s classic Alien. The short documentary is part of their new series Art of the Scene, which tears apart classic movie scenes, looking at the creative minds, techniques and stories behind them. - See more at:
"A newborn Xenomorph bursting violently from John Hurt’s chest is one of the most iconic, and important, scenes in science fiction or horror movie history. A lot went on before and after Ridley Scott shouted “Action” - we’ll tell you the whole story.

Ridley Scott's Alien is still one of the most terrifying horror films and interesting science fiction films in American Cinema history. From the humanizing, lived-in environment of the Nostromo ship, to the genius creature design, to the genuine surprise on the faces of the cast when the Alien chestburster bursted out, we’ll take you though all the elements that made this scene.

What did you think? Did we teach you something you didn’t know about the Alien Chestburster scene? About production design or creature creation? About Ridley Scott’s tendency to play mean tricks on his cast? What other iconic movie scenes would you like to see us dissect in future episodes of Art of the Scene?"
