2012 Movie Mash-Up

Holy calamity. This is one seriously laborious edited exploration of the movies of 2012. No surprise it comes from our pal Sleepy Skunk (who we hear is pretty good at coming up with aliases and with making mash-ups). Not only did he condense great moments from 182 movies into under 7 minutes, he also managed to craft 3 meaningful movements – the first uncovering the looming theme of Dystopia while tying together common elements (like heavy rain or lights shutting off along a hallway); the second having fun with a common mash-up song and the many explosions of the year; and the third reveling in the connectivity between major Hollywood blockbusters and indie projects that are finding the kind of funding they need to play at a higher level. He was even nice enough to include a complete second-by-second guide to the movies in the video. My favorite moment comes at 6:00 when a fish bowl in Starry Starry Night tips over, its water forming a wave that becomes a huge tail of lava from Wrath of the Titans. Not only is it a gorgeous image, it also tells a one-second story of the diversity in films released this year. Well done, Skunky.
