Recut Movie Trailers

Today I have for you three "recut" movie trailers. They all contain actual footage from actual well-known movies, with accurate voiceover descriptions of the movies, but somehow the movie you actually saw was quite different from what the trailer suggests. I recommend you watch them in order, to get the best laugh out of the third. I didn't get the first one, having never seen The Shining, but what was going on became clear with the trailer for the scary version of what I remember as a cute children's musical Mary Poppins. And so I watched the Top Gun one eagerly. I knew this movie well. Were they going to turn him into a criminal? A terrorist? At first I'm thinking ... this is just the normal movie, and then I started to laugh. It's such a subtle change. And nothing I hadn't noticed already. I should have seen it coming. Right into the Danger Zone, indeed.

Rent the Shining (Kubrick's version) tomorrow! It's great movie and the trailer is hilarious afterwards. :-)

I don't do horror, so no thanks.

BTW: for the next couple of weeks I'm going to be offline, so you'll be getting queued autoposts and no feedback on your comments. I promise to read them all when I get back, though!

Have a good time off line....and that TG trailer confirmed a lot of what I think about Tom Cruise....blech.

Be safe, clear quiet skies and make sure you have the hammer to hit the bottom of the aircraft to make it go whirrrrrrrrrr.

Enjoy your vacation, whatever it may be. I think it's a good thing to be completely off-line once in a while lest one be taken over by the 'net.

Pity you can't enjoy "The Shining" though. Kubrick was a bloody genius. Like Gene Kelly, I'm not sure I can forgive him for the images that come up for me with "Singing in the Rain" because of "A Clockwork Orange".

Oh, cut to the chase and watch Gollum's acceptance speech at the MTV awards on YouTube!
