The move comes as Cambodia seeks to tidy up its reputation for human rights abuses, rampant corruption, and lax law enforcement, some of many factors that have deterred foreign investors.

Watch: Films of 2010 Reviewed in Six Amazing Minutes

Wow. This video is very, very cool. An amazing way to recap the films of 2010!

“This year’s movies have legitimately transformed my idea of what is creatively possible. To commemorate, I’ve remixed 270 of them into one giant ass video,” says Genrocks, who put together this masterpiece.

He has even listed out all of the 270 films for you with this note: “My film selection process was fairly open; anything that was either produced or distributed in 2010 was fair game (I also consulted this Wikipedia entry). This is why some movies are labelled 2009 or 2011 on IMDB. Also, this by no means constitutes a comprehensive list of films that came out in 2010. That would have been exhausting.”

Watch ‘Way Back Home’ – A visually stunning mountain bike street trials video feat. Danny MacAskill

We recently impressed and posted a free running video from London, that not only showcased the free runners skills but was also visually spectacular. Now today I came across this video which perhaps even tops that. Danny MacAskill is a street trials rider who is based in Edinburgh but who was originally from the Isle of Skye. This short film entitled ‘Way Home’, documents Danny’s journey as he rides at various spots along the way from Edinburgh to his home town Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye . The scenery, music and story really lift this piece and Danny MacAskill’s riding speaks for itself. The video was sponsored by Red Bull and you can read more about it here.
