enough of us thought of Andy Baio (aka MeFi's own waxpancake) when we saw this, that he decided to call it "waxy-core"

Total Recall works better as a 3-minute silent movie.

So now I need this to go through every movie Tom Hanks has done and cut together his quotes and replace Jar Jar in the prequels.

You can also use videogrep to find instances of people employing specific grammatical structures...
That part was really cool.

I want to make a movie that works the same way that Total Recall silence cut does.

Python, come for the syntax, stay for the cool libraries/scripts.

That TED cut is amazing.

I almost love this, but the snap in the audio at the transitions is SO IRRITATING that I can barely watch. Needs to auto-adjust cut points to zero crossings.

well, here comes the deluge of supercuts I suppose. This is incredibly fucking clever work, but I'm not sure the product is going to be so fun to wade through.

Awesome. Finally someone can make that supercut of every single time anyone says the word "okay" on ten seasons of The West Wing!

I want someone to make a version of this that will cut out any phrases of my choosing.

That would be pretty easy to do; just reverse some greater than and less than signs in the script!

Also, thanks to this script for introducing me to movie.py; what fun.
