The Rocketeer 20th anniversary from John Banana on Vimeo.
Here's a fun little fan made film produced by French animator John Banana to celebrate The Rocketeer's 20th anniversary. Now if only Disney would hire him to produce this as an actual series.

Back in the 1960's Marvel Comics had an official fan club called The Merry Marvel Marching Society. Part of the initial membership kit was a plastic 33 1/3 RPM record with a recording of Stan Lee and the rest of the Marvel Bullpen called The Voices of Marvel. The video above is the audio from the record put to pictures of each of the participants.

One of the best games available for the Sega Master System is Golden Axe Warrior. It's a fun game that's similar to the original Legend of Zelda. I managed to pick up a copy online with both the box and the manual for only $10 plus shipping. It usually goes for a lot more than that so I'm happy. The video above is a video review of the game that someone posted on YouTube.
As the game came out right at the end of the Sega Master Systems life-cycle, it was largely overlooked here in the U.S. That's a real shame as the game is really fun and in many ways is actually better than Zelda. The ability to buy extra dungeon keys in item shops as well as finding them in the dungeons help prevent players from getting stuck like they sometimes can in Zelda. The difficulty level and player strength both seem to ramp up in a consistent manner and I never felt like it ever got too far out of whack.

The game is also an unlockable title on the X-Box 360 and PS3 versions of Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection.This is probably the cheapest way to get the game, assuming that is if you already have an X-box 360 or PS3.
