That is some brilliant goddamn editing right there.

There was exactly the right amount of About Schmidt in there.

That was delightfully loopy. Brilliant.

This is very good. I keep waiting for people who make these kind of things to discover the power of color correction, though. Even the automatic stuff in FCPX would help a lot.

It's a nice little movie, but there are some continuity issues.....just a couple.

Fewer continuity issues than in any of the Die Hard movies....

I would have gone with Campbell, not Willis.

I'm increasingly disturbed by the apparent amount of man hours that go into making super-cuts.

Listen, up: you could have used those seven weeks to make a 20 second animated clip instead. You could have taken a part time job hosting at Applebee's and then quit and used the money on lottery tickets. Or, you know, sex. You could have made more of the sex.

Be a better steward of your time, Internet people I don't know.

Is this all because of the harmonica playing?

You've got to give Willis a lot of credit for bucking Hollywood about gun control when the target demographic for Die Hard 5 is every fucking redneck in the world. Right?

You know he wore a hairpiece even during those early Moonlighting years, right? Poseur.

Just finished reading some Bruce Dern interviews after watching The King of Marvin Gardens, and on seeing the title of this post thought that it was certainly a reference to public reaction when Dern killed John Wayne in The Cowboys.

Tough to imagine that as a super-cut, though.

You know, not everyone can just work at Applebee's whenever they feel like it.

And by work at Applebee's, I mean have sex.

Nice, they even put a clip from the Die Hard spoof Don't Die Too Hard (the bald guy in the crawling-through-air-ducts sequence). I wish that the yellow cab had morphed for a couple of seconds into the flying cab from the Fifth Element though.

From the title I was really hoping this was a supercut of Bruce Lee scenes.

This'll do though.

Amazingly, this is one of the themes of Die Hard 14, which is in early pre-production. Bruce Willis plays John McClane, a retired New York City police detective, who has applied for work at the local Applebee's as a security guard. They tell him "you're too old, McClane", but when terrorists take over the restaurant it is up to him to save everyone in the place, armed only with a butter knife and some slices of pie.

This is good. No, really good. No, this is amazing. This is unbelievably great, particularly the sound editing/mixing. Whoever put this together will get offers, fo sho.

Needed more cursing. Also, not all of those clips were from Bruce's films, which seems a bit like cheating.

That said, it's clear to me now... Bruce Willis is a Terminator. :)

So between these two comments I was really expecting to see some amusing Jack Nicholson hijinx in here.

First four minutes had amazingly strung together clips of car chases involving taxis. I thought "how many taxi chase scenes are there? How long could this go on?" and then Bruce gets out of the taxi and into a cop car. And then I thought "this could potentially go on forever"

It would be awesome to have a supercut where it's a single character getting in and out of cars in every movie they've been in.

I can't believe they had all those helicopters without the bit in Live Free or Die Hard where he ramps the police car into the helicopter.

I, too, wish that anyone with the impulse to make something creative requiring time and effort would instead take a part-time job at Applebee's.

Hah, shoulda known it was Frenchies all along! This is very much in the tradition of American Class, a What's Up Tiger Lily-style spoof by the same Hazanavicius that brought you The Artist.

That was a huge amount of fun, and it's good to see Last Boy Scout getting a nod; it's a criminally underrated movie.

Also, you know what I love about Luc Besson? Even the cats that he casts have a weird look to them.

Also also, I have seen every one of these movies. Repeatedly. What does that say about my tastes in film?

I can't not think about the edited-for-TV version of Die Hard 2 where they overdubbed Bruce Willis' trademark line with Yippee Ki Ya Mr. Falcon! It still makes me laugh to this day. (SLYT)
posted by kfkcam at 9:31 AM on March 27, 2013


That's preferable to the "Yippee-ki-yay, mother *GUNSHOT*" from the theatrical release of Live Free or Die Hard.
posted by brundlefly at 9:38 AM on March 27, 2013


Speaking of Mr Willis - a while ago I started getting annoyed over these endless "deluxe, ultimate, anniversary" reissues of albums. I thought to myself - what would be the most unlikely and undeserving album to get one of these treatments? For my own amusement, I made this.

Grindhouse's Death Proof. It was the one directed by Tarantino.

I heard the latest Die Hard wasn't very good but it just seems like these people are overreacting.

Though "Mother Gunshot" would be a great character name, I'm not just sure for what kind of story.
