A visit to the nickelodeon

The Empire Strikes Back: Silent Movie Edition. Done exactly right. It's got the scratched film and the jerkiness/ jumpiness as well as the brightness oversaturation when the light sabers clash. Beautiful. Makes me wish there was an entire movie's worth. (via Bob Cesca's Awesome Blog! Go!)

Die Hard: The Ballad of John McClane Not quite as artful as the above Star Wars clip. Goes a bit overboard with the stilted dialgoue, trying too hard to sound "old-timey". Still, I get a kick out of the whole faux-silent look...

From The Simpsons, it's the first pairing of Itchy and Scratchy in Steamboat Itchy, a parody of the Walt Disney 1928 animation Steamboat Willie, the character that later became Mickey Mouse.
