We post a fair amount of montages here on /Film, but this one’s extra special. Back in 1993, well before the days of Final Cut Pro, a 19-year-old Edgar Wright holed himself up in an editing suite for several weekends to put together this montage, “Gun Fetish.” The clips are pulled from VHS tapes, which explains the low quality. Even so, it’s apparent that Wright has an excellent sense of rhythm and timing, as well as real affection for the films he’d go on to reference and parody in work like Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. Watch it after the jump. Be forewarned — the video is, as Wright puts it, “a little NSFW and spoiler heavy.”

We’ve written about the Back to the Future and Silence of the Lambs minimates in past Cool Stuff columns. Diamond Select is working to transform other classic movies to little lego figure sized form. Up next is the classic spaghetti western A Fistful of Dollars.
Anyone that knows me, knows I’m not a fan of westerns. Probably because I was subjected to more than a few bad ones by my father when I was a little kid. But even I can agree that a Clint Eastwood minimate is pretty cool. No word on a release date or price, but I’m guessing a four pack will run around $15 bucks.
