Top Ten Appearances of Rube Goldberg-Type Contraptions

You know one when you see it: a Rube Goldberg machine.  Rube Goldberg (1883-1970) was a Pultitzer prize-winning cartoonist/inventor, best known for his depictions of devices which accomplished simple tasks by convoluted means, operating on a series of inter-dependent, domino-like events.  His work naturally reflected--and often parodied--a national obsession with technology, as his life coincided with a budding and booming industrial age.  His renderings are so unmistakably synonymous with his name that Rube Goldberg even appears in the dictionary to describe any such redundancy-packed machine.  Hats tipped in his direction via all sorts of pop-culture homages demostrate just how influential the man and his drawing were.   Here are ten of such which carry Goldberg's signature, and show that practicality isn't everything (lessons to be learned in this age of smartphones and the over-praised virtue of all-in-one-ness).

Here are ten of the all-time greatest.

These movie trailers are parody trailers, they are fake, make fun of the actual movie, and provide lots of spoilers.  They're also hilarious.

With the recent release of The Avengers and the still present nerdgasm I have as a result of watching it, I got to thinking who else in Marvel’s long line of heroes is due for the silver screen treatment? Aside with the X-Men, Spider-Man, and the other greats already have a shot, who else in the pantheon is up for some action?

Ah, the movie sequel.  Hollywood finds a great movie and tries so hard to outdo the first with an even better sequel.  Rarely does it happen that the sequel is better than the original, but sometimes it happens.  Sometimes, the sequel is at least as good as the original.  The below list are sequels that are at least as memorable as their original counterpart.

Donnie was PERFECT in Ip Man but if we're really gonna compare skill & acting with Jet Li put Ip Man up against Jet Li classics like FEARLESS and Once Upon a Time in China and HERO... Ip Man was done more recently but lets not forget the CRAZY list of movies Jet Li has done! "Fist on Legend" anyone??? come on now... im a HUGE Donnie Yen fan but Jet Li is THE ONE.. literally!

a movie can make a martial artist look rather good regardless of real martial arts skills but to judge the actual "better" martial artist, choreographed fight are not a good way to decide

The raid should have made this list. It was great. and the Raid 2 is equally as good. I was surprised though to hear that Ip man 3 was coming, and that ip man final fight was created. I'll have to go check this stuff out.
