Recut Previews on YouTube

Recently, I've been enjoying recut previews on YouTube. This is where someone takes a movie that everyone knows, reedits for a mock-preview that casts the film in a different light...and sometimes as a different move. They carefully select music to make a comedy serious, or to make a horror film goofy.

Here's The Ten Commandments as a teen love story:


Here's The Shining as a heartwarming family movie:


After you see these, you have an idea of what I'm talking about. If you go to YouTube and search for recut previews or for your favorite movies, you may find a jewel or two.

I watched the Shining recut and was amused at first,but know what? Then I got a little horrified because think about how much in the world can be taken out of context and manipulated to portray a mixed-up reality to the world! Unless you clearly know that the Shining is a horror film,and that was a recut, you would blindly "trust" what you were shown.
Kind of an insightful thought...hmmm
p.s. I love this blog!
