Forget The Movies, This Is What A Real-Life Spider-Man Looks Like

My problem (one of my problems) with the Spider-Man movies is that the wire stunts and CG webslinging are so obvious. He just seems weightless and looks fake to me.

The Best Action Movie You'll See All Week = Parkour + Rube Goldberg

Parkour reveals the secrets of orangutan movement

Orangutans spend their lives swinging in trees and eating fruit. Neither of those things is all that surprising for small animals that don't need tons of energy — but it's distinctly weird for such large primates to live that way. » 7/04/12 9:56am 7/04/12 9:56am
