Given the myriad mysteries of the universe, the writers on Star Trek: The Next Generation clearly struggled to come up with a unique way of describing so many different phenomena. Trek fan Ryan’s Edits compiled this supercut of the numerous times things were explained as “Some kind of…” or “Some sort of…” on the show.
THE BEST Supercuts
The Electric Light Orchestra song Mr. Blue Sky is one of the most joyful tunes out there. So it’s no wonder that filmmakers have used it so often to bring a little light into their movies. Editor Jovi Prata compiled this montage of movie scenes that featured the track, from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to Paul Blart: Mall Cop.
(PG-13: Language, Gore) After making a mark in The Godfather trilogy, oranges have taken on an unexpected role as a symbol of impending doom in film and TV. Editor Brian Carroll’s supercut features moments where the citrus fruit played a role in significant scenes. Naturally, it’s set to Orange Wedge by the Chemical Brothers.
Video editor Cut to Black provides a bit of lighthearted relief from the stress and worry of the coronavirus epidemic with a pop culture supercut that recaps the news, then reminds us that we will prevail if we all follow the scientists’ advice and stay home as long as it takes.
(PG-13: Nudity) There’s something about the quality of light that neon and tubular lights produce that create a dramatic mood. Editor Anton Moskalenko’s compilation looks back at some of the films and TV series which have effectively used neon to illuminate scenes. Naturally, there’s a heaping helping of Nicolas Winding Refn.
(PG-13: Language) From Vizzini in The Princess Bride to Frau Blücher in Young Frankenstein, some of the most memorable and quotable characters in the history of movies are also the weirdest. Jon Lefkovitz compiled this excellent edit of some of their greatest moments.
Editor ThorC1138 managed to find scenes from 100 different films in which a character spoke a different number between 1 and 100, then cut them together into a multi-movie countdown. We were really hoping for a rocket lift-off or a big explosion at the end.
Editor KaiserBeamz went back through the extensive catalog of Looney Tunes cartoons, going back from 1929 through 1969, and picked out a choice one-second clip from each one. The 17+ minute reel is packed with quick laughs and serves as a great historical retrospective.
Editor ThorC1138 put together this fantastic montage of movie scenes which take place in or around bathtubs. In all, there are over 150 different films, with memorable scenes from everything from Scarface, to Blazing Saddles, to The Jerk, to The Shining, to A Nightmare on Elm Street.
With a reverse dolly or reverse zoom the viewer backs away from its subject instead of moving towards it. Jim Casey of The Solomon Society put together this great edit of reverse shots set appropriately to Say Lou Lou’s cover of Tame Impala’s Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.
(PG-13) “Hey, there’s no dangers or anything or side effects right?” We don’t know when Rick and Morty‘s fourth season will be released. Until then, grab a snack and check out this supercut of half of the show’s shtick: a clueless kid getting wrecked by his genius grandpa.
Despite the breadth of his work, there are still trademark stylistic touches that appear in many of Steven Spielberg’s films, not the least of which is his use of background lighting. Jorge Luengo Ruiz put together this short reel of some of these visually powerful moments.
Celebrate some of the best and brightest films of the year with this excellent supercut from CLS Videos. The reel features great movies like Blade Runner 2049, Get Out, Baby Driver, and The Shape of Water, backed by a duo of great tracks by musicians Sparks and Nena.
(PG-13: Language) We can hardly believe that the year is nearly over. So with that in mind, Sleepy Skunk is back with another glorious year-end roundup of all of the movie trailers he could get his hands on. In all, there are 231 individual movies – good, bad, and ugly.
(PG-13) You really need to watch every episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia for maximum effect, but for fans of the show, you’ll want to check out Sh*tty Film Productions’ compilation reel, which features 1 to 2 second snippets of every episode of the show so far.
Film editor Jacob T. Swinney compiled this intense reel of moments from Darren Aronofsky’s films in which the camera gets up close and personal with its subjects. The technique provides an immediacy and sense of involvement that’s about as visceral as it gets.
