Slow-Mo in the Movies

Slow-Mo in the Movies

Editor Casper Langbak of CLS Videos created this montage of scenes from movies that effectively used slow motion to enhance a mood or to punctuate action. That Quicksilver scene from X-Men: Days Of Future Past is still one of the best things ever. The track is Love…Thy Will Be Done by Martika, and here’s the full list of movies.

Heavy Metal Hog Calling

Heavy Metal Hog Calling

Soooooooo-weee! Bang your head! Andre Antunes is back with another hilarious heavy metal video edit, this time adding an appropriate musical flourish to a hog-calling competition. Seriously, they should have an electric guitar player on stage at every state fair from now on.

60 Songs a Year: 1990 to 1999

After taking on the 1980s with aplomb, The Hood Internet has completed the cycle for the 1990s. Hit play and enjoy this 35-minute playlist of classic hits from nineties hitmakers like Deee-Lite, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, No Doubt, Alanis Morissette, Everclear, and Missy Elliott.

The Movies Sing Wham

The Movies Sing Wham

Editor The Unusual Suspect loves to cut up movie dialogue and reassemble the pieces into the lyrics from pop songs. After entertaining us with Lou Bega’s Mambo No. 5, he’s created a music video for Wham’s equally cheesy earworm Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go using clips from 189 different movies.

YouTube Premiere

YouTube Premiere

This video clip starts out as the countdown graphic that YouTube shows before a premiere. But keep watching and you’ll see it morph into other iconic intro screens. Motion graphic artist 4096 seamlessly blended the transitions between several familiar images, like they previously did with game console startup screens.

Napoleon Dynamite Horror Movie

Napoleon Dynamite Horror Movie

Napoleon Dynamite is one of our favorite movies of all time. But if you take its quirky characters out of context and combine their actions with the appropriate music, this cult classic comedy quickly becomes a freaky horror flick. Tobias Conrad performed the editorial surgery needed to give us just that movie.

Epic Video Game Transitions

Epic Video Game Transitions

Inspired by fellow editor Gugga Leunnam, game enthusiast Abs4Fun spent over 4 months compiling and meticulously matching up scenes from video games to create A Ride Through the Gaming Universe. The result is something straight out of Ready Player One.

The Typewriter: A Supercut

The Typewriter: A Supercut

Typewriters may have gone the way of the dinosaur for most people, but they served their purpose well and provided the basis for today’s computer keyboards. Editor and film buff Ariel Avissar compiled this great supercut of movie and TV scenes where typewriters played a major role. The track is The Typewriter by Leroy Anderson.

Jim Henson’s Predator

Jim Henson’s Predator

Thanks to Disney+, we’re in the midst of a The Muppet Show binge watch. One thing we don’t remember seeing was the part where Kermit the Frog blasts Carl Weathers in Predator. Thanks to Pixel Riot, we can now share this never-before-seen footage. You saying that Blain and Hawkins were killed by a f**king frog?

Super Mario Song 2

Super Mario Song 2

Inspired by a lengthy livestream of Super Mario Odyssey, ThePandemicLight edited the brief but potent Blur track Song 2, and replaced all of Damon Albarn’s celebratory “Woo-Hoos” with the voice of Mario. It’s as brilliantly funny as it sounds.

Stock Footage Simpsons

Stock Footage Simpsons

We’ve seen what editor Matthew Highton can do with stock footage before. Recently, he remade the opening title sequence of The Simpsons using only off-the-shelf video, and it’s pretty spot-on. We’re amazed by how oddly-specific stock footage can be. How many people could be searching for “baby behind a steering wheel?”

David Supercut

David Supercut

Photographer David Friedman of Ironic Sans pays tribute to his own first name with this supercut of movie and television scenes where people utter his name. But it’s not just an assemblage of random scenes, rather an entire emotional story arc for Dave and company.

Supermoon Supercut

Supermoon Supercut

Editor Ariel Avissar pays tribute to the movies and to the moon with this enjoyable compilation of scenes where the deceptively large supermoon provides a bright source of natural backlighting. See if you can name all of the films.

Holding Out for a (Jedi) Hero

Holding Out for a (Jedi) Hero

The last episode of season two of The Mandalorian was truly amazing, and Luke’s return was truly epic. Bugzkilla synced up the sequence with Bonnie Tyler’s ’80s classic Holding Out for a Hero, and it suits the scene perfectly. They followed it up with My Heart Will Go On for Din and Grogu’s teary-eyed farewell.

First-person Shooter

First-person Shooter

First-person shooter games have been around in one form or another since the early 1980s.

Time of Our Lives: 1970 to 2020

Time of Our Lives: 1970 to 2020

DJ Earworm is famous for their annual United States of Pop mashups. Rather than a single year, this clip strings together songs representing the height of pop music from the last five decades without revealing their vocals. See how many of the tracks you can identify, then check your answers in the description on YouTube.

Beethoven’s Fifth: Beat a Maxx Remix

Data: A Sitcom for Androids

Data: A Sitcom for Androids

We always thought Star Trek: The Next Generation had a good sense of humor, but TrainDozer thought one character stood out for his comedic chops. So he got to editing together footage from the series and blooper reels and added a laugh track. The result is a surprisingly solid sitcom.

Paddington Horror Movie Trailer

Paddington Horror Movie Trailer

“You’ve literally just brought home a random bear.” The live-action/CGI movie Paddington tells the story of a family who offers a place to stay to a bear in need. But with a little help from YouTuber Scuffed Asian, Paddington’s visit just became a whole lot more ominous.

Harrison Ford Eating

Harrison Ford Eating

Harrison Ford is known for his numerous roles in action movies and thrillers, as well as his real-world heroics. But we didn’t realize that he was such a foodie until we saw Owenergy’s compilation video, which solely features scenes of the dashing Mr. Ford as he chows down for some finger-licking good meals.

Hit Play, crank up the volume, and get ready for a wild ride.

Folsom Disco Blues

Folsom Disco Blues

When I hear that disco whistle blowin’, I hang my head and cry. There I Ruined It destroys yet another classic tune. This time they transformed Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues into an awful disco tune, and in the process, they provoke a prison riot.

The Hood Internet: 1990

The Hood Internet: 1990

After wowing us with their awesome 1980s music compilations, the guys from The Hood Internet have kicked off a new decade, this time cramming 60 hits from 1990 into a 3-minute, 30-second medley. From Deee-Lite to Depeche Mode and Pixies to Public Enemy, it’s a fantastic flashback to a fondly-remembered time.

Weapon of Choice Beatswapped

Weapon of Choice Beatswapped

The music video for Fatboy Slim’s track Weapon of Choice is one of our all-time faves. Between Spike Jonze’s understated direction and Christopher Walken’s dance moves, it’s a true classic. But what happens when you swap the 2nd and 4th beats of the track? Steve Badach did just that, and the result is just as infectious.

This Sh*t Is Bananab

This Sh*t Is Bananab

The 2005 Gwen Stefani track Hollaback Girl repeatedly proclaims that “this sh*t is bananas,” then proceeds to spell it out letter-by-letter. But what if Gwen’s backup singer couldn’t spell? Archie Henderson aka Jazz Emu made us bust a gut laughing with his impression of just that.

Justice League: Retro Edition

Justice League: Retro Edition

AListProductions used footage from 1970s to 1990s DC Comics movies and TV shows to create their vision for what a Justice League movie might have looked like back in the day. It’s certainly looks more entertaining and less morose than Zack Snyder’s version.
