Shut up and watch! Hell’s Club: The Ultimate Nostalgia Mashup

I don’t even know how to explain this. But here goes. This is a video by YouTuber Antonio Maria Da Silva AMDSFILMS (his videos are as random as his name) about a club called Hell’s Club. The unique thing about Hell’s Club is that it features a fine gumbo of Nostalgic characters from some of our favorite movies (including multiple Tom Cruise, Ewan McGregor and Al Pacino characters). Like I said, this video is hard to explain (at least for me) but if you ever wanted to see what it would look like if you got Anakin Skywalker, Obi Wan Kenobi, Austin Powers, The Terminator, Michael Jackson, Bradley Cooper, Blade, Tony Montana, RoboCop, Darth Vader, The Night at the Roxbury Guys, that chick from Flashdance as well countless other movie character in one club, this is the video to watch. Enjoy.

Yes, Will Smith was originally cast to play Neo in The Matrix movies. A couple of interesting “what ifs” come out of this. First, how different would The Matrix be with Will Smith as the lead instead of Keanu Reeves? I mean it’s safe to say Keanu put his own “Keanu” spin on the role. Also how different (and by that I mean how much worse) would the movie Wild Wild West have been had Will Smith not been in it? Yes, Will Smith passed up The Matrix to do Wild Wild West. While, this move did not hurt Will Smith’s career at all, you can make the argument it was probably the best thing to ever happen to Keanu Reeves.   Molly Ringwald as Vivian Ward in Pretty Woman It’s hard to picture anyone but Julia Roberts in this role but Molly Ringwald …
