You Got Wizard
The Movies: 1939 musical classic, The Wizard Of Oz , and dance flop, You Got Served .
The Mash-up: Scenes from The Wizard Of Oz synced to an audio rip of the You Got Served trailer. Result? A badass Dorothy with an unusually deep voice letting it rip on the yellow brick road, to some block rockin’ beats.
Greatest Example Of Synergy: The Wicked Witch of the West’s closing line of the trailer: “You know how I like it baby... straight hood.”
10 Things I Hate About Commandments
The Movies: A trio of strange bedfellows: 10 Things I Hate About You, The Ten Commandments and Pulp Fiction .
The Mash-up: A reappropriation of The Ten Commandments , this pepped-up edit casts its main players into a 10 Things -esque high school scenario. Using the recycled audio from Commandments , you’d never guess the original wasn’t about trying to get laid.
Greatest Example Of Synergy: The final title card announcing Samuel L. Jackson as Principal Firebush.
The Movies: The Tina Fey-scripted high school bitchfest, Mean Girls , and Middle Earth saga, The Hobbit .
The Mash-up: This fan-made animation highlights the woes of Bilbo Baggins as he discovers A-List posse, the Elves, are the most feared of all the cliques in Middle Earth. Their snide backstabbery shows off a darker, cattier side to the pointy-eared brethren.
Greatest Example Of Synergy: A cutaway to Gollum fretting over his Precious, is interrupted by Thranduil, who pops up in the background, reusing one of Mean Girls ’ wickedest snips, “Stop trying to make Precious happen. It’s not going to happen!”
Batman In Classic Movie Scenes
The Movies: Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, When Harry Met Sally, Return Of The Jedi, There’s Something About Mary, Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone, Notting Hill, The Sixth Sense , and Casablanca .
The Mash-up: A series of classic scenes with a stand-in actor dressed as Batman adding a touch of the razorblade-gargling gruffness only Bruce Wayne’s voice can provide.
Greatest Example Of Synergy: The final scene in the clip, and from the movie Casablanca finds our masked hero sat at the bar in Ingrid Bergman’s place asking Sam to play As Time Goes By .
Brokeback To The Future
The Movies: Ang Lee’s love story, Brokeback Mountain and sci-fi geek trilogy, Back To The Future .
The Mash-up: The haunting acoustic guitar twangs of the Brokeback score illuminate the forbidden love of Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd.) As the camera pans back over the Hill Valley of 1885, the preview clip follows their romantic venture across the dusty plains... and across time.
Greatest Example Of Synergy: Any moment when Marty and Doc share a look - timed perfectly with a choice spot of innuendo dialogue.
The Movies: Kidnapping actioner, Taken and pothead chucklefest, Pineapple Express .
The Mash-up: Habitual stoner Dale Denton (Seth Rogen) accidentally dials the wrong number. Instead of connecting with his high school girlfriend, he winds up promising his undying devotion to Brian Mills (Liam Neeson) in this nifty phone call chop up.
Greatest Example Of Synergy: The discussion concerning whether or not the two should date.
The Movies: Oscar-winning Iranian hostage thriller Argo and Oscar-winning snowy Minnesotan flick, Fargo.
The Mash-up: Instead of the imaginary sci-fi movie the crew of Argo choose as their ruse to escort six hostages back to the U.S... they opt to remake the Coen Brothers’ Fargo, with clips from both interwoven to great effect.
Greatest Example Of Synergy: Actor Bryan Cranston calls William H. Macy to ask if he’ll reprise his role as Jerry Lundegaard. His response to the news that Ben Affleck will be directing is masterful.
Walter White Calls Uncle Buck
The Movies: John Hughes ‘80s comedy Uncle Buck and addictive-as-all-get-out TV drama, Breaking Bad .
The Mash-up: A brilliantly-timed phone conversation is cut together as Bad’s hero-villain Walter White (Bryan Cranston) places a call to a sleeping Uncle Buck (John Candy.)
Greatest Example Of Synergy: Easygoing Buck asks Walter if he’s drunk - the worst thing to ask apparently, as he responds by calling him a stupid bitch. Ouch.
Nicolas Cage Losing His Shit
The Movies: Vampire’s Kiss, Ghost Rider, Deadfall, Face/Off, Red Rock West, Bad Lieutenant, Matchstick Men, Leaving Las Vegas, Bringing Out The Dead, 8MM, Adaptation, Wild At Heart, Windtalkers, Raising Arizona, The Wicker Man and Zandalee .
The Mash-up: Stringing together all of Cage’s zanier moments, his commitment to full-blown histrionics is masterfully cut together into one mammoth collapse into the darker recesses of humanity.
Greatest Example Of Synergy: When a backseat rant from Vampire’s Kiss segues into one long resounding “Fuuuuuuuuuuck” from Deadfall .
The Dark Notebook Rises
The Movies: The final instalment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga, The Dark Knight Rises , and Nicholas Sparks’ tearjerker, The Notebook .
The Mash-up: The playful dialogue of Noah (Ryan Gosling) and Allie (Rachel McAdams)’s epic romance is spliced with footage of Bane and Batman’s bloody feud. The two enemies are rather convincing recast as lovestruck youngsters.
Greatest Example Of Synergy: Bane and Batman’s battle on the steps of Gotham City Hall is transformed into duelling banter between lovers, with Bruce Wayne asking his nemesis over and over if he could have been a bird.
