Watch: 'The Shining', Pixar's 'Finding Nemo' + 'Gravity' as 8-Bit Games
"Stay out of Room 237." Gotta love these 8-bit videos. Classic cinema turned into 8-bit video games. If only these were real, and we could play the games. "CineFix presents The Shining retold via old-school 8-bit (and a little 16 bit) game tech. No quarters or controllers required!" In this latest round of updates from CineFix, we're featuring the 8-bit cinema videos for Stanley Kubrick's The Shining (which might be the best one in this batch), Pixar's Finding Nemo and a lackluster music video for Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity. If you're a movie geek and video game nerd all rolled into one, these videos were made just for you. Watch and enjoy.
Here are the newest 8-bit cinema videos for The Shining, Pixar's Finding Nemo and Cuaron's Gravity:
Bonus Round! Here's the 8-bit cinema video for Adam McKay's Anchorman from 2004 to watch as well:
All of these come from the CineFix channel on YouTube (the originators of the "8 bit" cinema videos), where they put out plenty of entertainment content. The Gravity 8-bit music video is pretty lame, but the other two 8-bit games are fun to watch. Gravity, co-written and directed by Alfonso Cuaron, is playing in theaters everywhere now (Sound Off here). Pixar's Finding Nemo, directed by Andrew Stanton, was first released in May of 2003. Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, based on the Stephen King novel, was first released in May of 1980. We've featured a few of the 8-bit videos before, including one for Blade Runner earlier this year, and I'm sure we'll see more of these. How many of these games do you actually wish you could play?
