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.

Actor Jonathan Frakes is best known for his appearance as Commander William Riker on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Imagine, for a moment, that Hogwarts wasn’t a school of witchcraft and wizardry and instead taught its students computer coding and hacking.

(PG-13) If you enjoy mob dramas, you’ll want to hit play on this one. Yaron Baruch put together this compilation of scenes from The Sopranos compared with The Godfather trilogy.

There’s no question that Terminator 2: Judgment Day was the best movie of the entire franchise. But back in 1991, movie trailers weren’t quite as slick as they are today. Michael Edwards edited together an awesome new trailer for James Cameron’s classic action flick, which also avoids the spoilers of the original trailer.
The theme song from DuckTales is one of the most memorable in the history of TV shows.

(PG-13: Language, Violence) With a little editing and the addition of a laugh track, Little White Lies turned the classic “Funny How?” scene from Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas into a scene straight out of Friends.
