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!

In the latest episode of their animated series "The Idiot's Guide to Smart People," comedy group The Bilderbergers take a look at some of the endless ways intellectuals try to separate idiots from their hard-earned cash.

"You thought it would be easy to turn Batman into a cool video game. For 20 years, you were wrong. Now, revisit the 2009 sensation that made everyone say, "See!, now this is how you make a f!*$ng Batman game!" Arkham Asylum."

There's a huge problem with game adaptations of movies. Anytime a developer licenses a movie property, they rush to get the game out in time, and as a result, put out another crappy licensed game that is not even worth playing. Will this ever end? The worst part is, they still make awful games out of some great licenses (Spiderman, we’re looking at YOU) and the trend has been this way since the inception of gaming. E.T on Atari, anyone?
"Who doesn't love watching a good movie while eating microwave popcorn? But even though there's so much love for awesome movies, there's still a negative vibe surrounding the so called movie games. Here are five reasons why!"

"Josh Powells clip-filled video for Big Beat Repeat, a bonus song found only on the CD version of the Half-Blood Prince soundtrack."

World, meet Nathan Sawaya. As a self-described "brick artist," Sawaya has made a career building contemporary art out of Legos. His newest creations, Lego Oscar statuettes, were given out to Oprah, Emma Stone and many others at the 2015 Oscars.

This just goes to show you can take the Legos out of the Oscars but you can't take the Oscars out of the Legos.

"Tekken 7 hits arcades in Japan this week, so publisher Namco Bandai has released the game’s opening cinematic, which shows series regulars Heihachi and Kazuya beating each other senseless inside an active volcano. It’s a family tradition?"

This new supercut from Rishi Kaneria will make you look closer at the films of director Wes Anderson.  It highlights Anderson's use of the colors red and yellow in his movies.  Kaneria offers a split-screen dissection of those colors pulled out of context from the movies in order to demonstrate how Anderson creates such mesmerizing worlds that we often don't even notice just how frequently the colors are being used because we're too busy being pulled into the story.
"A supercut examining Wes Anderson’s use of the colors red and yellow."

I've only just discovered Dominick Raburn's 'Hip-Hop RPG', and I can already say that it's hands-down one of the most bizarrely hilarious and entertaining web series' I've watched in a long while. The story follows a group of post-apocalyptic warriors who send a chosen soldier back in time to recruit their younger selves, change the course of history and avert the apocalypse.
"In the near future, a small group of hip-hop artists band together to try and protect what's left of Earth from a collective of sinister invaders."
