Ahhhh, December. The carols. The smell of Christmas trees. The “movies of 2013″ supercuts that everyone and their mother starts putting out. It’s a good month for fans of montage. This one, by The Sleepy Skunk, is specifically a mashup of the year’s trailers. NSFW for one instance of foul language (thanks, Kick-Ass 2).
Vadzim Khudabets has taken bits from over 50 sci-fi movies—some good (The Dark Knight, Sunshine), some bad (The Last Airbender, Prince of Persia), and a lot in-between—and made the trailer for Eterna, the most epic, apocalyptic, explode-y movie to never exist. Enjoy. I know I did.
Robert Jones, the YouTuber behind this movie dance scene supercut, has turned to more martial pursuits with this excellent movie fight scene tribute. I was watching, grooving along (I really like fight scenes) when I saw a tiny snippet of Vasquez from Aliens at 1:24. That’s when I knew I had to share this with you guys.
The only thing that kept me from dancing along is that I’m tethered to my computer by my earbuds. And the fact that I’m not sure whether spontaneous mid-workday boogying would be smiled upon or not. I might need to ask about that… just, y’know, for future reference.
What’s special about this? I’m just saying it doesn’t seem like it’s particularly limited to Disney, they’re used in orchestras and soundtracks all th-
Oh, violence. I got you. A supercut of that in Disney movies would probably take at least twenty minutes. I mean, there aren’t even any Hercules or Sleeping Beauty clips in here. And yet somehow all these villains wind up falling off cliffs anyway. They should really put up some railings.
NSFW for crude language, sexist language, language about sex, copious amounts of vomit, violence, several dozen middle fingers… This video gets an NSFW warning for everything, basically.
Jonathan Keogh, who created this wonderfully vitriolic supercut, describes it better than I ever could:
When you’re thinking about that guy who dumped you, that teacher who told you that you “couldn’t”, that boss who fired you, that guy who cut you off, and that sad, sad, sad, sad, sad bully you had in school, I hope you can resort to this video and know, you’re not the only one who feels like that, and there are 400 movies right here that are on your side, not there’s [sic]. And if you should feel so inclined to take one extra dramatic step, don’t resort to violence or criminal behavior, go ahead and e-mail them this video and say “this made me think of you”.
Summer movie season kicks off with Iron Man 3, and depending on what country you live in that’s either already happened or will happen in a few short weeks. I for one can’t wait. The folks at Movies.com have cut together the trailers for all this summer’s big releases into one mega-trailer. It features the movies I want to see (Star Trek Into Darkness, Pacific Rim, Elysium, etc.) alongside others that I, er, don’t (DreamWorks’ Turbo, starring Ryan Reynolds as a super-fast garden snail, comes to mind). But hey, when you pair Turbo, Fast & Furious 6, and The Hangover Part III with epic music and Kal-El’s monologue from the Man of Steel trailer, even they look a little bit cool. Just trust me, watch this. It works.
