100 Movies, 100 Quotes, 100 Numbers

From the most amazing Very Short List:

"The recent proliferation of easy-to-use video-editing software has made amateur video editing a new form of home entertainment. Movie fans can now release recuts of popular movies, pastiches of iconic scenes, and compilations of their favorite quotes online (witness the countless fan-retooled Star Wars clips). One of the most amusingly meta examples of this new hobby is 100 Movies, 100 Quotes, 100 Numbers, a video made by a film lover who found 100 instances, in 100 films, of someone’s mentioning a number. Then he cut these clips together into a single video that plays as a countdown from 100 to 1.

The Web video’s creator told us he did it mostly to see if it could be done; it’s impossible not to appreciate the zillion hours of film-watching it took to find the appropriate quotes. A fascinating demonstration of sheer, ludicrous obsession in the name of offbeat entertainment, the video is also a lot of fun — especially once you get caught up in trying to name every film that’s sampled."

For those that might not recognize every quote, here is the marvelous list.

I tried saying the quote as the films I'm familiar with appeared. Great way to distract from work.
