Watch 303 classic movies in just 3 minutes
In YouTube Right Now, the Daily Dot looks at videos that catch our eyes, push our buttons, and move our dials—and that you’ve just got to watch. Right now!
If you can’t decide on a movie to watch, how about 303 of them?
Verified film buff Jonathan Keogh stitched together an amazing supercut featuring several movies from IMDB’s Top 250 list and a bit more. The three-minute clip features slivers of scenes from Batman Begins, Lord of the Rings, Toy Story, Independence Day, and American Beauty (to name a few).
Keogh noted that 53 films in the supercut don’t appear on IMDB’s list, which means that there are more than 300 films are incredibly edited down in the fantastically produced video. “However, none of my haters can tell me that any of these 303 titles do not exist on IMDb,” snarked Keogh. Valid point!
Keogh, a noted supercut creator on YouTube, said it took a month to produce the video. IMDB’s list is compiled by user votes and ratings that have at least score a 8 out of 10. He wrote that while the list provided a basis for movies to use, it wasn’t fair for other notable movies to be left out.
“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,” he wrote.
The video has garnered more than 300 comments, mostly complementing Keogh’s creation. One commenter, named olesto, put it best: “I just saved 375 hours. Thank you.”
