While the video is, sadly, unembeddable, it is worth the extra click if you are in serious need of depressing yourself into oblivion. The Movie Miscellany has compiled a tear-soaked supercut of 100 of cinema's most gut-wrenching death scenes -- the ones that have made you sad, the ones that made you curl up into a fetal position and weep, the ones that mad you have to call your mom... they're all there! The full list of deaths is on the site, in case you accidentally missed (or spared yourself from) some of the scenes. Actually, the extra click over to the video page is good. You'll have time to grab tissues or call a friend for support. Oh, and don't bother looking for any of Sean Bean's many screen deaths. He has his own supercut. (via io9)
(Video link) Claire Danes has been crying her whole entire career, and it usually gets her all kinds of trips to award shows. But when all of her crying scenes are strung together into a supercut, you'll realize that crying not only made her career -- it might actually be her career. Girl cries like it's an Olympic sport! Do you think she trains for it? Is this the real reason she hawks eyelash lengtheners? Is Latisse really steroids for crying? Are her tear ducts insured? How does she get her chin to do that hummingbird thing? Could her sobs be signed to the UFC and fight Ronda Rousey? Let's face facts: Claire Danes' cry-face is the new Chuck Norris.

Good afternoon! Did you accidentally scroll down into the comments section of a political website today? Maybe you got stuck in traffic, or you're expecting to? Well, here is about four and a half minutes of movies scenes depicting exactly how you feel. Supercut artist Zach Prewitt has laced together some of cinema's greatest temper tantrums. If you can't physically beat your telephone into submission without facing disciplinary action, you can watch a few famous people do that on your behalf. (via The Huffington Post)
The Cussing Channel has produced a Dark Knight Joker supercut, featuring all the on-camera Heath Ledger scenes. It rather stopped me in my tracks -- Ledger really put in an astounding performance, something that is underlined three times in red by ten straight minutes of Ledger doing his thing.
Rules: Just The Joker, just the on-camera dialogue. Now, there are many shots in this film over the Joker's shoulder, with the focus on the character he's talking to... those lines didn't make it... only the clips where the Joker is the focus of the shot (otherwise this becomes a 30-minute affair).
