One of the other “best of the year” videos we’ve featured over past years is created by editor Kees van Dijkhuizen (see the videos for 2008 and 2009), who most recently was commissioned by Fox Searchlight to edit a video to celebrate “15 Years of Fox Searchlight”. Gen Ip, editor of 2010′s viral sensation Filmography 2010 has cited Kees as one of her inspirations, stating that Dijkhuizen’s “film compilations have been particularly outstanding.” So now that 2010 is coming to a close, Kees van Dijkhuizen has released Cinema 2010. Here are some words from the editor:
We’ve reached the end of yet another unforgettable year of movies. Not only did this years movies push boundaries even further, they did so with impeccable risks. In a time of recession and playing-it-safe, films like Inception and The Social Network still found a great audience. But smaller films also, like Blue Valentine, Splice, Buried and Breaking Upwards found a loving audience. It’s crazy to think that all these films came out in one year, and so I tried my best do give them each a moment of glory in my latest film retrospective, Cinema 2010.
It’s the follow-up to the successful Cinema 2009, which obtained almost a million views on YouTube. 60,000 film fanatics used it to reflect on their year of film on New Years Eve. It was also screened in front of over 300 directors, producers and distributors in Amsterdam. Cinema 2010 perfects what 2009 accomplished; a personal, stylish and extensive summary of a year in film. Hopefully it will surpass Cinema 2009′s success, but even if it doesn’t, it’s still something to look out for. It premiered during the Houston Film Critics Society’s annual Award Show on December 18th and was available on YouTube December 21st. The broadcast of the award show on national television will feature Cinema 2010 as well.
Kees van Dijkhuizen’s Cinema 2010 is five minutes and a half in length and took over 300 hours to complete. Watch it now embedded after the jump.

Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan isn’t even playing on 100 screens in the United States yet but, based on back to back huge weekends at the box office, it’s safe to say the film is building some serious word of mouth. However, while most of that word of mouth is incredibly positive, there are plenty of people who find many of the film’s more eccentric and out there moments to be comical.
It’s safe to assume that Jeffrey McHale is one of those people. The director/editor has made a very clever trailer mash up using the full audio track from the Black Swan trailer, edited with applicable footage from Paul Verhoeven’s infamous Showgirls. And, to be honest, it works extremely well. It is NSFW however, as Showgirls was an NC-17 movie. Check it out after the break. Read More »
We’re huge fans of Edgar Wright here on /Film. He’s been on the SlashfilmCast, we’ve covered and fawned over his movies and posted innumerable random, cool things about the man and his films. There’s almost too much to say about Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World so thankfully, Joel Walden can do the talking for us. Walden is editor who has made a beautiful video highlight reel blending Wright’s three most famous films. Check out the clip after the break. Read More »
In Hollywood, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles seem to be one of those trends that come and go. They stay in the sewer for years, then pop up with a new movie, then go away again, then pop up with another movie (still rumored to be on track for 2012). But on the internet, where the world comes together, the Turtles never really die.
Though they originally gained popularity as toys, most of us came to know and love the Turtles based on their hit cartoon show that ran from 1987-1996. Sure the original live action movies certainly hold a place near and dear to our hearts, but there’s something about that show. Something about that theme song. Something that almost makes you … want to reenact it shot by shot with your friends. See what we mean after the jump. Read More »
Because you demanded it, because we haven’t posted about it enough, and because you know you’re excited, it’s time for another TRON: Legacy post! This post, however, isn’t as serious as Dave’s editorial on the potential box office failure, or as expensive as my write up on real life light cycles. No, this is just a group of massive TRON fans from Gamervision who’ve watched Be Kind Rewind one too many times and decided to make their own version of the TRON: Legacy trailer. They named it TRON: Legacy – Low Rez.
I saw the film last night (look out for the full review soon) and really kind of loved it. Then I watched this trailer and it made me wish I could see the film again right now. Check it out after the jump, as well as the side by side comparison video and even a behind the scenes video. Oh, and if you have a pair of Red and Blue 3D glasses, break those out. Cause this sweded trailer is in eye-popping 3D (hence the blurry photo above). Read More »
Who knows when we might finally see a big screen adaptation of Orson Scott Card‘s sci-fi novel Ender’s Game. Hollywood has been trying to bring the sci-fi property to the big screen for the last decade, first with German filmmaker Wolfgang Petersen (Das Boot, The Perfect Storm) set to direct based on a screenplay by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, and just recently it was announced that Gavin Hood (Wolverine) has come aboard the project as both writer and director.
But you don’t have to wait years to see what an Ender’s Game movie might look like, as a fan has edited together a trailer using imovie. Steven Davis used clips from Star Trek, Star Wars episodes I and II, Starship Troopers, Serenity, Soldier, Tron: Legacy, and Trailers for Halo: Reach, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Live Free or Die Hard, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, set against the backdrop of “5th Wheel Music – A Hero Emerges”. Hit the jump to watch the trailer now.
