The proliferation of cheap non-linear editing software and video-streaming sites has made the video-mashup and supercut a common occurrence online. In today’s case, an older supercut—two years old—has made the rounds online recently that acts as a nice chaser after the Oscars.
Edited by AtrEdits, the video pulls together the last minute or so (or final shots in some cases) of the top 250 movies of all time as voted by IMDB. Since all the clips playing at regular speed would extend the supercut into a near half-hour, all the footage has been sped up. Before you cry foul about the films featured, the editor set a cut-off date for IMDB standings at July 4th, 2011 so there’ll be no “I, Frankenstein” appearance.
In any case, all the heavy hitters are accounted for: “Vertigo,” “Psycho,” both the first two “Godfather” films, “Sunset Boulevard,” “Goodfellas,” “Some Like It Hot” and “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” among others. Watch the video below and try to see how many films you can recognize before you need to check the list.
