This BATTLE OF THE GEEKS Short Film is a Fantastic Homage to Geek Culture
Do you remember playing with your friends and pretending to be characters from your favorite shows and movies? I remember when Super Smash Bros Melee was on its way out and the rumors were flying about what new characters would join as playable characters like Sonic, Mega Man, the Polygon Team, and more, my friends and I would pretend to be these characters during recess and “fight.” Battle of the Geeks is a fantastic video from Iconoclast Brazil in the same vein as that. Two geeks fight using weapons and powers from some of the most popular geek culture franchises.
I know I can’t name them all, but here’s a start of the list: Star Wars, Star Trek, Street Fighter, Spider-Man, Dragon Ball, Game of Thrones, Iron Man, Wonder Woman, The Matrix, Stranger Things, kung fu movies, Naruto, Back to the Future, Ant-Man, and Magic the Gathering. This is a fantastic video for any geek. The special effects are fantastic and it just reminds me of my childhood. What other franchises did you spot?
