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.

Community has returned after a three month hiatus that had fans freakin’ out with fear their favorite comedy was gettin’ axed. Thankfully, Community prevailed and is back where it belongs, Thursday nights at 8pm on NBC. Make sure you join us every week as we recap the continuing exploits of Greendale’s most infamous study group.
Last episode left Greendale on the verge of war as tensions were rising higher and higher between Abed’s (Danny Pudi) pillow fort and Troy’s (Donald Glover) blanket fort. In this week’s, “Pillows and Blankets” the greatest battle of our time commenced. And in a glorious return to the concept episodes we fans love so much, the creators of Community decided to present the conflict through the lens of a Ken Burns-directed, PBS documentary. It had it all: solemn testimonials, photograph pan and scans, found footage via cell phone cameras, and every other war documentary trope you’ve been subjected to in your high school, social studies classes. Basically, this might have been one of their most genius concept episodes, yet.
In true documentary fashion the majority of “Pillows and Blanket” is told through a narration, provided fantastically by Keith David. Each member of the study group plays an important, and completely expected role. Annie (Alison Brie) serves as a nurse aiding combatants suffering from injuries like broken glasses and lightly grazed testicles. Britta (Gillian Jacobs) captures the horror of linen warfare with her often blurry and terribly framed photographs. Jeff (Joel McHale) uses his power of compelling speech to rouse both sides to the fight while at the same time sharing in a text message exchange with Annie like displaced lovers during wartime. Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) proves she’s as good at kicking asses as she is wiping asses and eventually becomes Troy’s second in command. Peirce (Chevy Chase) is the first to choose sides, joining Troy because he’s less weird and foreign, but quickly defects to Abed when Shirley is made his superior.
