Empire's Ultimate Collection Of Movie Supercuts
150 of your finest pop culture megamixes, all in one place

submit to reddit

Blogger Andy Baio came up with the term 'supercut' for an internet phenomenon he describes as "a genre of video meme, where some obsessive-compulsive superfan collects every phrase/action/cliche from an episode (or entire series) of their favorite show/film/game into a single massive video montage." In the following 24 pages, we've collated over 150 of our favouries pieces of pop culture pinnickityness, mostly centred around film with a few TV numbers at the end. Of course, there are many more supercuts out there, so if you have one you'd like to suggest for a certain list, please do so in the comment box below. 

P.S. Some of the best supercuts - including this Shaun Of The Dead callbacks number - can't be embedded, so that may be why you're favourite hasn't made it onto this feature...

6 By the way...
You guys don't seem to know what a supercut is exactly, cause I see you included Kees van Dijkhuizen's "50 years of James Bond", which is no supercut at all, it's 100% editing, no repetition, but a montage in dramatic progression. And I also see you included "20 Movie Knockouts - Face Punch Supercut" which is ridiculous: only 20 films (that can't even be called "supercut"), a few of them are not even punches but slaps (not the same, are they?) and there is some TV series in there too ("Movie Knockouts"? Hello???). Try this instead: 80 movie fights and face punches in less than 4 minutes. It's edited as a montage, not as a supercut, but since you don't seem to care about that distinction, you could have featured it instead of that lousy "20 Movie Knockouts". Also, in the making of this compilation, you should have found my raining montage, my crying montage, my monsters montage, etc. More
