Compilations, montages, supercuts. Whatever you want to call them, lately, they’re everywhere. I like calling ’em supercuts. It’s fun to say. Supercuts. Suuuppeeerrcuts. See?
Anyway, supercuts are videos comprised of only one thing from either movies, television, video games or cartoons repeated over and over and over again. There are Star Wars supercuts, My Little Pony supercuts, Game of Thrones supercuts, Quentin Tarantino supercuts, and even a supercut focusing on the “Spielberg Face.” Basically, if some savvy video editor starts to notice recurring cliches, lines, or even camera shots they’re going to edit ’em all together into one massive supercut.
Here we’ve got a superb collection of 25 supercuts spanning all kinds of things. Check ’em out and let us know which is your favorite! I know we haven’t included every excellent supercut so if you’ve got a favorite we missed share it in the comments below and help us make this an ultimate collection.
Every Single Fucking Dude from The Big Lebowski [TannerStraus]
He’s just, “the Dude,” y’know? What an enviable title, who wouldn’t want to be known by one and all as, “the Dude”? This style of supercut is pretty common, an edit of one word or phrase repeated again and again, but there’s something about hearing “Dude” continually repeated I find calming. It’s good for my zen.
Hit the jump for more superb supercuts!
Name of Thrones [thecussingchannel]
Game of Thrones is truly a name game. With every season adding more and more characters, keeping track of everyone can be a nightmare if you can’t keep their names straight. Thankfully, The Cussing Channel has cut together every mention of the important houses of Westeros. And this won’t be the last you hear from The Cussing Channel in this list. They’re something of a powerhouse in supercuts, make sure you check out their entire collection.
Ways to Die in Game of Thrones (Season 2) [Jest]
If keeping tracking of everyone’s name and allegiance is an import part to Game of Thrones, keeping track of how you can die is just as vital. Goody for us then Jest compiled every possible way one could die from Season 2. Obviously, spoilers and graphic violence ahead.
The Best of Tyrion Lannister (Season 2) [HuffPo]
For the last of our Game of Thrones supercuts I wanted to highlight the best part of the show, Tyrion Lannister, with no small credit going to the man behind the imp, Peter Dinklage. This supercut is a collection of every awesome, witty thing to come out of his mouth this season. Honestly, I’m shocked they were able to keep as short as they do.
Sean Bean Death Reel [Harry Hanrahan]
Well, this isn’t from Game of Thrones, per say, it is a supercut of Sean Bean dying. It seemed apt. Keep an eye out for more from Harry Hanrahan, a true artist of the supercut.
Harry Potter, Just the Spells [thecussingchannel]
Need to brush up on your spellmanship before your O.W.L.’s? Never fear, The Cussing Channel comes to the rescue with this supercut of all the spells from the Harry Potter flicks. It’s almost 20 minutes long! That’s a lot of magic. It’s all here, everything from Alohomora to Wingardium Leviosa.
Epic Voldemort Montage [SuperDBZHPFan]
If you’re familiar with the Harry Potter series at all you’ll know there’s one name most witches and wizards loathe mentioning out loud – Voldemort. This supercut is every utterance of the name from the series. I’m now awaiting the companion supercut in which someone compiles every utterance of, “He Who Must Not Be Named.”
Pulp Fiction Fuckin’ Short Version [tommeke007]
I don’t know if there’s anyone out there who can make crass language sounds as meaningful and poetic as Quentin Tarantino. He’s got a gift. Here’s a supercut of every “Fuck” from Pulp Fiction, and guess what? It’s a lot of F-bombs, go figure.
Tarantino // FROM BELOW [kogonada]
If the language doesn’t clue you in that you’re watching a Tarantino film, maybe some of the camera work would. Like this shot the director likes to feature over and over, the from below shot. I don’t think there’s been a Tarantino film without one, and this supercut collects ’em all.
Star Wars, Just the Blasters [thecussingchannel]
The Cussing Channel has quite a few of these supercuts and I only included two, so make sure you check out all their Star Wars supercut offerings. First we’ve got Just the Blasters, and then there’s Just Chewbacca.
Star Wars, Just Chewbacca [thecussingchannel]
Every Lightsaber Ignition & Retraction [Landstrider]
How could I represent blasters and not include lightsabers!?! They are the iconic weapon from Star Wars. In this supercut you’ll see every ignition and retraction across all six movies. That’s a lot of ‘saber action.
Every Zombies Death from The Walking Dead [Landstrider]
Not to be overshadowed by all the gruesomely awesome deaths from Game of Thrones, here’s a supercut of all the zombie deaths in The Walking Dead. It only covers season one, but there were far more headshots in that season than season two where they chose to focus on “meaningful “discussions on the farm.
Nicholas Cage Losing His Shit [Harry Hanrahan]
Here starts a fun sub-genre of the supercut, focusing on one actor over his breadth of films. Take Nicholas Cage for instance, this supercut features him going completely, fuckin’ bonkers over and over. You are compelled to watch.
160 Greatest Arnold Schwarzenegger Quotes [Harry Hanrahan]
Oh Ahnuld. Your acting ability is unlike anyone’s and you’ve delivered so many gems. How could you ever pick just 10 or 20 or even 50 of the best Schwarzenegger line reads? You’ll have to power through all 160.
Natalie Portman Cries A Lot [ScreenRant]
Sometimes it isn’t so much what an actor says, as what they do. Natalie Portman cries. A lot. And here’s the supercut to prove it.
I’ll Call You Back [Slacktory]
Gah! Never, ever, ever, ever, ever say this in a movie! Saying to someone, “I’ll call you back,” is movie code for, “You’ll never hear from me again,” and more often than not it’s because you’ll be dead.
Keyframe: The Spielberg Face [Fandorific]
Spielberg is almost a genre unto himself. Especially once you got filmmakers like J.J. Abrams replicating his style with movies like Super 8. A staple of the Spielbergian film? That face. The astonished, amazed look a character has only when they’re gazing off screen in a Spielberg movie.
Every time Indiana Jones is mentioned by one of his titles [shrunkenlamb]
He was named after the dog, y’know? And don’t worry, they didn’t include any scenes from that abomination, Indian Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
25 Greatest Unscripted Scenes in Films [mewlists]
A supercut can also function like a countdown or a list, like here where they’ve collected the 25 best unscripted scenes. It’s interesting to note that most of the films on this list are over 20 yrs old! Why is there so little improvisation in today’s movies?
Every “Bazinga” From The Big Bang Theory [zoidberg79]
TV show catchphrases, sometimes they’re manufactured, other times it’s something the actor said that just stuck. Honestly, I don’t know which “Bazinga!” is, but it’s a catchphrase we, and I’m betting Jim Parsons, will never hear the end of.
Don Draper Says “What?” [dondrapersayswhat]
But sometimes a catchphrase isn’t a catchphrase until someone makes a supercut. For instance, it took Don Draper Says What!? before we realized, Don Draper says “what?” – a lot. Seriously, the guy questions everything.
All the times Abed has said “cool” in Community [findschmidtm]
Cool, right? Cool, cool, cool.
Doctor Who: Regeneration (All The Doctor’s Regenerations 1963 – 2010) [BrianRimmer]
If you’re a particularly sensitive Whovian, bring out the tissues for this one. This supercut of every regeneration is basically a collection of ever time a Doctor had to say goodbye. Start the deluge of tears…now.
“Pony” is said 381 different times in Season 1 of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. [GameFreak2413]
Finally, if you’ve made it this far, this My Little Pony supercut is the greatest challenge. Do you think you can finish the gauntlet and listen to every, single, utterance of “pony”? If you do decide to listen, definitely turn on the closed captioning. It’s adds and unforeseen dimension to the hilarity.
