YouTuber thepeterson makes video montages that pull together clips from pop culture days of yore, highlighting what movies and TV shows the masses were watching, what they were listening to on the radio, and what video games they were playing. In the latest one, June 1998 is put into the spotlight. Prepare to take a (possibly nostalgic) trip down memory lane to see what was "in" twenty years ago this month.

Listen at your own peril.
This fantastically executed supercut illustrates the verse-verse-chorus formality of movie trailers (especially action movies), which all appear to be describing the same movie. (via Kottke)

Nothing is a supercut of scenes from Seinfeld in which no humans appear, creating a show that's not only about nothing, but also about no one. It's pretty great, especially once you get into the interior shots around 4:40.
BTW, I just checked and the Seinfeld box-set is still $59 on Amazon -- all 33 discs' worth. Read the rest
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) Read the rest
Claire Danes cry-face is stuff of legend. It might even make legends cry.
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) Read the rest
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).
The Dark Knight - Just The Joker
