Supercut: Science Fiction

Science Fiction: A Supercut (Glitch Mob remix "Monday")

A remix video of over 100 science fiction movies. This took about a month of editing. In regards to the weird aspect ratio, we had to crop it because we were working with so many weird formats. The song is the Glitch Mob remix "Monday," original by Nalepa.

Video: 50 Years Of James Bond

Would five minutes of each of the 22 James Bond movies strung together, make a new, coherent 007 flick? Yeah, it does, which says a lot about the tight formulaic structure of the films.

The Bond franchise has always been quick to change with the times. Live and Let Die was strongly influenced by Shaft, Moonraker was strongly influenced by Star Wars, Daniel Craig's gritty Bond was strongly influenced by Matt Damon's Jason Bourne and now Skyfall follows The Dark Knight. As Natalie Atkinson writes, "every generation gets the James Bond it deserves."

Supercut: IMDB’s Top 250 Films in Under 3 Minutes

"This is one incredible list of films/movies. If Peter Weyland wanted David to learn about cinema while the crew of Prometheus was still in hyper sleep, he'd probably have him go down the IMDB Top 250. This list does change infrequently, and I began the project over a month prior to November 1, 2012, so yes...I know some of these movies are not on the top 250. 53 Titles to be exact (as of 11/1/12).

From what I can gather, each film that makes it on the list has to have a rating of at least 8/10 on IMDB. After all this is a democracy, so each film does appear because of a substantial amount of votes. However, I couldn't put "The Avengers" in without "Ferris Bueller", and I wasn't going to let "Scarface" slide if "Bringing Out The Dead" wasn't in there too."
