If you’ve got a couple minutes, this is a great video. Jonathan Keogh has combined the top two hundred and fifty movies from IMDB and turned them into a great musical mash up that includes a very odd little musical mix that combines Joan Jett Cyprus Hill and The Beatles.
Official Video Description:
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 attention to my haters…Yes…I KNOW
some of these movies are not on the top 250. 53 Titles to be exact
(as of 11/1/12). However, none of my haters can tell me that any of
these 303 titles do not exist on IMDB.
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.
Either way, I hope you all enjoy it.
The song, by the way, can be found here on youtube. It is a mashup
mix of Joan Jett, The Beatles, House of Pain and Cypress Hill by the
very talented DJ FAROFF. His opens with a cut from Rage Against The
Machine, but it didn’t work with the video.
After the last two videos (163 Horror Films in 2.5 Minutes and Dance of the Criterion Collection), I had a lot of support and motivation from many bloggers, heroes and friend who deserve a special call out.
