Your favorite movies, re-edited

Some people can get REALLY creative when it comes to their favorite motion pictures and films.  Here are a few examples of some classic films, in which someone has taken the footage and edited it together into something both quirky and unique.

For example, here’s the 2015 film Inside/Out trimmed down to a 15-minute clip.  How did they do that?  Simple.  Film student Jordan Hamzon took out all the internal dialogue and adventures of Joy and Sadness and the rest of the Herman’s Head plotlines, turning the film into a simple story about a girl who moves to a new town and has trouble adjusting to her new surroundings.

Maybe you’d rather see the classic 1939 film “Off On The Wizard.”


Oh… forgot… someone took the entire film The Wizard of Oz and re-alphabetized the motion picture.  Yep.  All the dialogue – and the titles – have been re-sequenced to run alphabetically.  Thus … Of Oz The Wizard.

Here’s another “alphabetical” film. Someone re-edited Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope so that all the dialogue is listed alphabetically.

Apparently, Princess Leia’s name is only mentioned three times in the film, while “lightsaber” is only uttered one time.  By Obi-Wan Kenobi, in case you wanted to win a bar bet.

Speaking of Star Wars, wouldn’t you like to have seen a version of Episode I: The Phantom Menace with as much Jar Jar Binks excluded from the film as possible?

Well, there are several different “Phantom Edit” movie re-edits that achieve that effect… here’s one of ’em.

And finally, have you ever enjoyed the movie “McBain”?


You’ve never heard of the film “McBain”?

Well, if you’ve watched enough episodes of The Simpsons, you’ve seen little clips of a send-up of classic Arnold Schwarzenegger movies.  Someone took all those little clips… and edited them into one full movie.  Does it make sense?  Maybe…

See, this is where fun begins.  This is creativity and imagination, and a little bit of whimsy.
