​Game That Actually Looks Next-Gen Gets Its First Trailer

Part of this teaser you're about to watch is live-action. Other parts are generated by an all-new bleeding-edge graphics engine. And, even if you can tell what's been recorded in reality and what's generated by software, you have to admit that the border between the two looks like it's dissolving. » 1/08/14 12:36pm 1/08/14 12:36pm

The Polish Knight Fighting League is the only reality show we need

1,000 years ago, when men strapped themselves into full-body suits of armor and began hitting at each other with swords, it was war. Today, it's entertainment. The Polska Liga Walk Rycerskich is essentially the Polish version of SCA but with real (albeit dull) swords, and it is even more insane that you can imagine. » 9/23/13 2:20pm 9/23/13 2:20pm

Rash of demonic possessions in Poland gives rise to 'Exorcist Magazine'

Business is good in Poland for priests who are skilled in the arts of demonic extrication. The country is in the midst of an exorcism epidemic (or boom, depending on how you feel about it.) And this has inspired Catholic priests to join forces with a publisher, and launch the world's first monthly magazine devoted to… » 9/13/12 2:30pm 9/13/12 2:30pm

Who needs to fulfill their daily quota of psychedelic Polish children's …

I'm not entirely certain what's going on here, but this is a clip from Akademia Pana Kleksa (English: Mr. Blot's Academy), a 1984 Polish-Soviet fantasy film about a magical school and its famous denizens. Such as Doctor Dolittle, Pippi Longstockings, uh, Hysterical Chicken Matron, and Bootleg Mickey Mouse and Donald… » 9/12/12 4:00pm 9/12/12 4:00pm

Stoned Polish E.T. and twenty more insane old European movie posters

Back in the day, Eastern European posters for English-language science fiction films sometimes rearranged the movies' plots, jigsaw-style. For example, the Hungarian posters for the Star Wars trilogy transformed Darth Vader's helmet into an unusually nefarious bundt cake pan. » 8/28/12 5:45pm 8/28/12 5:45pm

Watch a 99-year-old Polish war memorial transform into a giant…

This is O (Omicron), a projection-mapping installation directed by Romain Tardy and Thomas Vaquié at the Hala Stulecia in Wrocław, Poland. Completed by architect Max Berg in 1913 to commemorate the centennial of the defeat of Napoleon, this memorial — with the aid of some well-placed lighting — becomes a pulsing… » 6/21/12 2:05pm 6/21/12 2:05pm

Polish Close Encounters of the Third Kind poster looks like Mac and Me

We've featured some wonderfully befuddling Polish movie posters before, but Andrzej Pagowski's design for Close Encounters of the Third Kind transforms the movie into a dreadful family comedy with McDonald's dance-offs. It's on eBay if you're in need of a conversation piece. And for more movies lost in translation, see … » 9/04/11 3:25pm 9/04/11 3:25pm

Polish science fiction movie posters (that never existed)

Old-school Polish movie posters were absolutely wondrous. Rather than succinctly portray movies' plots, these posters would go out of the way to be as cryptic as possible. Something Awful has transmogrified some of your favorite sci flicks into symbolic weirdness. » 9/14/10 11:05am 9/14/10 11:05am
