Can you believe that I just watched Say Anything for the first time in my life? And I grew up in the 80s…

Siskel and Ebert’s review of the movie:

Which led me to Siskel and Ebert’s review of Princess Bride:

Which I decided to watch again….Inconceivable!

Though unfortunately, if you have never seen this, I have to warn you that the very last few minutes of the movie are obliterated.

Anyway, this first video is the first i saw of his mad editing skillz:

Then, i looked around a bit more and found these:

And then he popped up again with this…really beautiful…

I love how this visualization lets you experience the Toccata and Fugue in a new way:
