If NASA wanted to beam one video into space that encapsulates our achievement in the cinematic arts, so that distant, intelligent lifeforms might pause before blowing us up, this should be the one video. It's a quintessential edit of IMDB's top 250 films, set to a raucous re-mix of "Jump Around/Come Together/I Love Rock and Roll." It's a wild, fun edit.

OK now that we got that out of the way: let's see how many films we can name in the 2.5 minutes. Go! PulpfictionShawshankGoodfellas...

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
