Never underestimate the power of a fan and editing software, my mother always used to say. She was right: December has been a fan-tastic month when it came to user-generated pop culture movies.

Talk about amazing. Seriously, WormyT has got skills.
Meanwhile, if you’re digging for some longer work, check out the modestly-named “The Greatest Fan Film of All Time,” by Jacob Drake and Larry Longstreth (as well as their veritable army of voice actors). To distill it to its high concept: it’s more than 40 minutes of Seth McFarlane humor meets Paul Dini action, all wrapped into the premise of “The Ultimate Showdown.” And you get to learn why Batman never gets invited to parties.
