CineFix's Homemade Movies Remakes Blockbusters Like The Matrix

So it's the middle of the week and you need a fun fix to make it through the day. Well, have I got something for you. And it's just way too much fun. But first, a disclaimer:

Disclaimer: This site does not endorse complacency and loafing in the workplace. This site will not be help responsible for any revenue or productivity lost as a result of informing you of this lovely, addicting distraction.

Now, then. Shall we continue?

Let me introduce you to CineFix, a YouTube channel where you can catch the latest movie trailers, small indie flicks and a bunch of crowdsourced content. And every Tuesday, they add a new release to their Homemade Movies feature.

Homemade Movies consists of completely unabashed amateur versions scenes from a big blockbuster film.
Painful?
Groan-worthy?
Not at all! They are actually a ton of fun to watch!

Take for instance, their remake of the Bullet Time scene in The Matrix. It's awesome in that they recreated the entire scene detail for detail using creative techniques on their amateur-scale budget including doing all the music montages using acapella voices. The final product looks like something you wish you'd shot back in high school film class (or probably how good you thought your films looked back in high school film class).

As a bonus, they even break down the mechanics for you in Behind the Scenes videos (like this one for the Matrix that is actually 5 times as long as the final clip). And even better, they mash up their take on the scene with the original so you can watch them side by side, and be amazed at how closely they were able to replicate it. (Sometimes, not all. The Star Trek: Into Darkness trailer remake uses toys and bad wigs, but is funny nonetheless.)

Seriously, if you need a solid time waster, this is the one!
